Several of my readers have chimed in through several social media outlets and the field of lovely actresses with stinky careers is growing like Topsy.
Longtime reader Lockwood nominates Milla Jovovich.
Is she pretty? D'uh.
Has she been in anything good? Well, I liked Dazed and Confused and The Fifth Element.
The rest of her career? Ouch.
My nephew Josh put some thought into his response. Too much thought? It's not my place to judge.
But he did add FIVE actresses to the list, and he limited himself to women with the first name Jennifer.
Jennifer Garner. Yeah, she's earned a spot. I kinda love her and I think Ben Affleck did a massive upgrade when he decided to marry her, but there's been problems, not least of which is the movie where she and Affleck met, Daredevil.
Jennifer Lopez. I loved her in Out of Sight, but there has been much stinky cheese after that.
I could kick myself for missing her the first time around.
Jennifer Love-Hewitt. Not a career to which I've paid much attention, but she has the requested qualifications.
Jennifer Aniston. Okay, I actually did kick myself for not putting her on the list. Not hard, but literally.
She was such a favorite on my tabloid blog, she should have come to mind immediately.
And going a little farther back, my nephew Josh reminds us of the vanishing act that was the career of Jennifer Grey. As my nephew Josh put it "Find some post Dirty Dancing relevancy, I dare you!"
"Nobody puts Baby in a corner"? "Nobody puts Jennifer in a good movie" is more like it.
The field is getting seriously filled up. My sister Karla has made some male nominations, which I think deserve another poll after this.
If you have a bright idea, put it in the comments or send me an e-mail. I may have to limit the list just because Blogger software can be fussy, but I'd love to hear more ideas.
Gorgeous actresses! Ugly careers! It's up to you, America! (And also my readers from other lands. Didn't mean to come across all jingoistic there.)
This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.
