In light of the other thread, I thought that this one could shine some much needed light on those actresses that could be SO hot but don't have enough exposure so to speak.

For instance, when I was switching through channels and came across the Scooby Doo movie all the fellas in the room were saying how hot Sarah Michelle Gellar was and I said "Forget Gellar! Check out Velma!!"

I don't know her name but for some odd reason I found her very sexy :)

I know you guys must have some personal faves also...let's see them!

I have always had a thing for Laura Linney - she isn't known for playing the beautiful sex bomb, but I think she could pull it off.

Linda Cardellini...I never saw the Scooby movies, but she's one of the main characters in the TV show Freaks and Geeks. She's cute.

Does anyone look great while gasping for air with a plastic bag tied around their head? She's got a nice bod, though...

And add Lauren Graham. I'm just starting to watch Gilmore Girls in syndication and she is regularly in short skirts or tight jeans. The sex factor is certainly there. Plus as mentioned before - Bad Santa.

I think because Jennifer Jason Leigh has never had a "look" one can pin down, and plays roles where she disappears into the character, she has never been perceived this way. Plus I think she scares people :lol: I've always thought she was sexy as all get out:

http://www.pix8.net/pro/pic/4494IRvZy/153456.jpg

She's not a kid anymore, and this candid picture shows a bit of heavy makeup and some unflattering lines (not to mention the severe hairdo), but she still looks great to me:

That would be the lovely, Constance Marie, who disguisingly appeared in "Selena" and is also on the TV series "American Family."

My pick would go to Jacqueline Obradors, who played George's sister-in-law on one episode of his show. She's been in "Tortilla Soup", "A Man Apart", and "Six Days, Seven Nights". Can anyone provide some pics to back me up?!

I agree that she is uber-sexy but under the Hollywood's sex radar? Her only outfit in 6D7N was a bikini, and now she is on NYPD Blue flaunting skin.

Uma is a dog. Uma = Oprah. They have about the same sexiness level.... 0.

Red Dog
10-21-04, 02:34 PM
Jacqueline Obradors!!?? :hscratch: :lol: Did you see what she wore in 6D7N? :drool: Have you seen some of her scenes in NYPD Blue. Even when she isn't doing a partially nude scene, she is wearing oh so tight sweaters.

She is the 2nd sexiest woman on TV IMO behind only Eva Longoria.

10-21-04, 02:44 PM
Wow. I can't believe nobody has mentioned Renee Zellwegger. On those VH1 or E! Top Honeys or beautiful women, she's always in the Top 10. Why? She's obviously a botoxer or is that smirk surgically implant onto her face.

Some people are saying Laura Graham or Eliza Dushku. To those people, I'm not sure you like women then...(just playing, what one man thinks is hot, is another man's f'ugly).

Red Dog
10-21-04, 02:56 PM
I think Renee Zellwegger is regarded as a sexy and attractive actress. The funny thing is that I don't find her sexy at all.

RTorres481
10-21-04, 03:38 PM
OK, you guys are right about Jacqueline and her wardrobe! But I guess I included her because she is often overlooked in favor of J-Lo, Angelina, Julia, and many others who are being named in the other thread.

... All right, who am I kidding!? Maybe I just dropped her name to see if anyone would post some pics!!

That's only because she isn't nearly as famous.

The way I view the question is...."Name a woman on television or in movies who is attractive and sexy, yet isn't really portrayed that way on camera."

10-21-04, 04:52 PM
Here some more:

Audrey Tatou (Amelie, Dirty Pretty Things)
Irene Bedard (Smoke Signals, Pocahontas)
Sanaa Lathan (Alien Vs Predator)
Eve (Barbershop)
Jaci Velazquez (Chasing Papi)
Paula Garces (Clockstoppers)
Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly)
Morena Baccarin (Firefly)

Maybe we need a new thread. "Which Hollywood actresses are sexy but are virtually unknown?"

I agree with the others about Janeane Garofalo, I would so pick her over Uma, Uma and Sarah jessica parker have a certain "male-ness" about them.
Janeane is well fit and doesn't get enough props for her looks.

she doesnt fit into this catagory either, because alot of people in hollywood already thinks she is anyways.

Well, she probably doesn't exactly fit the bill because she's famous, but Cate Blanchett I always thought was very hot. In the roles she's had though, she's played generally serious/dramatic roles. She's not given enough credit for her hotness.

I'd also throw another vote in for Zooey Deschanel

"Not So Peachy Ricci: This sunken, shrunken creature you see before you is the once beautiful and bodacious Christina Ricci, whose stick-thin neck now seems ill equipped to handle the weight of her noggin. The actress makes the scene at a Louis Vuitton event (she currently appears in the company's ads) in one of the designer's creations, a form-fitting but lady-like cream and blush-pink dress with keyhole cutout that only emphasizes her dire need for a balanced meal, with maybe a couple of grilled cheese sandwiches thrown in for dessert."

Definitely agree with:

Laura Linney
Chloe Sevigny
Kate Winslet (although I think she qualifies as a sex symbol)

Cate Blanchett is the most beautiful woman in films, IMHO.

Also, some older actresses that I still find very, very attractive:

Elizabeth Pena
Tilda Swinton
Gina McKee (probably best known in the US as the wheelchair-bound "Bella" in Notting Hill)
