Maher can be funny, but that was pretty retarded. Apparently, he's never been to an art museum or seen a 1920s French postcard.

Hint for the next BOTW (no direct answers):

Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
I'm beginning to see the light
Blow the candles out
Looks like a solo tonight
But I think I'll be alright

Been black and blue before
There's no need to explain
I am not the jaded kind
Playback's such a waste
You're invisible
Invisible to me
My wish is coming true
Erase the memory of your face

You'd think I'd remember by now, but is the end year bracket based on the top 16 percentages with more than 75 votes? If so, this is the most up-to-date crop so far:

Kate Upton (92.08%)
Shannon Elizabeth (88.30%)
Grace Kelly (88.00%)
Katharine McPhee (87.37%)
Lyndsy Fonseca (87.06%)
Catherine Zeta-Jones (86.32%)
Jennifer Lawrence (85.29%)
Lacey Chabert (85.00%)
Molly Quinn (84.00%)
Katy Perry (81.30%)
Lucy Pinder (80.58%)
Alyson Hannigan (79.61%)
Maria Sharapova (77.55%)
Deborah Ann Woll (77.53%)
Alice Eve (77.27%)
Kylie Minogue (76.62%)

Grace Kelly is/was the best.

I once shared a train ride with a gentleman that worked for Mr. John Kelly (Grace's Dad)

Mr. Kelly was famous, successful athlete, politician and businessman.

He was Mr. Kelly's driver for many years, then when Grace got to be a teenager, he became her driver. He told me that his *real* job was preserving Grace's virginity! He was paid extra for it. He said he chased many boys away and was quite relieved when Grace became "of age" and he could retire.

What's icky about actively preventing the deflowering of an underage girl?

The man was PAID by her parents to stop her from talking to boys.

Did they educate her and trust her at all?

Meh, it was the '40s. No one trusted kids back then.

Since apparently she lost her virginity at the age of 17 to someone before she married Prince Ranier I wonder what "of age" meant.

Great choice. People seems to forget about the classy older stars who may not be with us but were still stunning in their day.

I'd like to nominate someone who is still with us for one of the weeks: Angie Dickinson

The man said his job was to preserve her virginity. He didn't say he was good at it

I certainly wouldn't want to stand between Grace Kelly and something she wanted.

Re: Grace Kelly: Babe of the week #47 (Nov. 2012)

Sounds like she had some fun times.

She allegedly lost her virginity to a friend's husband. The story goes she was visiting a friend who wasn't home. She was made welcome by the friend's husband and they decided to sleep together. This was before she enrolled in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in October 1947. She claimed later to have engineered the liaison, not wishing to arrive at college inexperienced in the ways of love. Later when her prospective marriage to Prince Ranier required her to be virgo intacta she was examined by the Royal Monegasque surgeon and allegedly claimed her hymen had been broken while playing hockey at school. - Source
As the truth came out about Grace's sex life as a single girl, in books ever more salacious in their details, it was a shock, sharply at odds with her pristine screen persona.

"She was shy. But physically, she was not shy," the actor Alexandre D’Arcy, who had a monthlong romance with Grace in 1948, told Robert Lacey. "She was … very warm indeed as far as sex was concerned. You would touch her once and she would go through the ceiling." - Source
