I think she's attractive. FWIW.

I'd like to see Amy Acker, but I don't think she fits everybody else's definition of 'babe,' unfortunately. Although maybe I'd be surprised....
She'd certainly get a thumbs up from me. She's gorgeous.
Agreed.

Thirded.

I could have sword Amy Acker had already been done. If she hasn't, expect the usual queue of people criticising how skinny she is.

Eh, I'll be too busy downloading all those hi-res pictures to care.

Yup. I'm paying attention. Amy Acker is officially off the board now.

Re: Maggie Gyllenhaal: Genre babe of the week #30 (July 2008)

Just thought I'd bump this one after finally seeing the Dark Knight today.

I went with my wife and knew beforehand that Maggie Gyllenhaal was replacing Katie Holmes as Rachel Dawes and my wife didn't. After participating in this poll I was curious to hear what my wife thought of her because she tends to find the same kind of woman as I do attractive. I also made sure I wasn't the first one to broach the subject because I wanted an honest opinion which hadn't been influenced by my own.

Sure enough after discussing the movie for a few minutes she brought up the new Rachel Dawes and as I pretty much expected her reaction was the same as mine. She thought she looked not only really rough for her age but found her to be generally unappealing as well. We both agreed that she wasn't unattractive but that she definitely lacked the kind of beauty we expect from a leading lady.

I then told her about this poll and the context (i.e. celebrity babe of the week) and asked her how she would have voted. She said that if it had been based on the standards of an everyday woman then she would have gone sideways but given that the babe of the week is supposed to be a hot woman in the movies she would have definitely voted thumbs down. It seems that she's a harsher critic than me because I voted sideways.

Anyway, I just thought some of you might find this interesting since it comes from a woman's perspective.

I saw it on imax - she needs to cut back on the horse.

However it's nice to know there are women out there with bigger bags under their eyes.

It's been awhile so I don't remember if I voted sideways or down, but my experience is somewhat like TheSeeker's. After seeing Dark Knight, in terms of a "celebrity babe", she's just downright homely.

While I definitely agree, I've been saying for a long time now that in movies and TV they seem to rely so much on looks and not so much on acting ability. That drives me insane! I would much rather someone be somewhat unattractive but at least be able to act. She may not be much to look at but she most certainly has great acting ability.

I don't think she's all that cute. Great actress though.
