If you had to have talent then you would never have heard of the names Megan Fox, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Heather Graham, especially Audrina Patridge, and Julianne Hough would still be in dancing. Once they hit 30 guys move on to the next 21 year old while girls like older guys. You would never see a girl George Clooney's age listed as one of the hottest people around.

    Not to mention you can name out of shape guys that have made it whereas you really cant name a girl that isnt skinny and has big boobs that has had a successful movie career.
    I can see where you are coming from to a certain extent. But look at someone like Meryl Streep, who is probably the most prolific actress alive atm. Not an overly attractive woman, but a fantastic actress. The same can be said for the aforementioned Kathy Bates. Angelica Houston as well. I understand what you are saying, but its the exact same process for men. Guys like Ashton Kutcher and so on and so forth would have never made it in the industry were it not for their looks. Guys like Leo and Matt Damon, who are both fantastic actors now, were both described as heartthrobs when they were brought into Hollywood, and their movies were targeted at women. Like Titanic. Do you remember how many girls had Leonardo DiCaprio posters on their walls after that movie? As it turns out, those guys turned into great actors, and I love both them on screen. But what I am saying is I admire guys like PSH and Giamatti and Spacey who werent introduced into Hollywood that way, yet have still gone on to become amazing and prolific actors.

    As for the women you listed, if you think Scarlett Johansson is a bad actress, you need to watch more of her early stuff. She has chosen bad roles lately, but she certainly isnt a bad actress and doesnt get by just on her looks. Or at least she didnt used to. Heather Graham is the same deal, I dont consider her a bad actress at all. I know what you are saying, just those are bad examples.

    But Jessica Alba is borderline painful to watch on screen. And Audrina Patridge? How many guys watch The Hills? You can blame that one on the girls who watch that ****, not the guys who wanna see hot women haha

        Leo did really well in the Titanic and brought that character to life so I think he wasnt just casted because girls liked him. He has grown into being one of the top actors I will agree. Would Megan Fox really be in Transformers if she didnt look hot while leaning over an engine looking like she is fixing a car? I'm sure guys are going to see that movie just to see Megan in it. She especially wouldnt be casted in Jennifer's Body since the only reason they got her was to see her get out of a lake almost completely naked except for panties on. Even if that movie bombs you know the person who paid for that movie is happy because I am sure he was on set watching her get out of a lake topless all day long. I havent seen anything that Scarlett has been in where she is a good actress. Its just that all of these top girls in movies all want to be taken seriously but every single one of them has got naked for one thing or another to keep their fame alive and get more money.

        I agree that it is nice seeing someone that doesnt have a pretty face have a good career but I think its a lot easier said and done for guys than it is for girls. Queen Latifah really hasnt had all that much of a career as roles in decent movies. I dont think Bringing Down the House really counts. I respect her because she got her roles by willing to let Will Smith make fun of her weight in The Fresh Prince to get her name out there.

            I didnt disagree with you about Megan Fox. She has about as much personality as a telephone pole when shes onscreen. Her looks have definitely contributed to her movie career.

            As far as Leo goes, he was a heartthrob, and turned into a great actor after. He broke into the business because teenage girls everywhere wanted him.

            As for Scarlett, Match Point and Lost in Translation come to mind as good performances from her. Vicky Cristina Barcelona was just a good movie overall, and In Good Company is a really underrated film as well. Scarlett can act; in fact, I quite enjoy her onscreen presence when shes trying to be something more then a tart.

              I thought Scarlett was pretty good in The Girl With the Pearl Earring or whatever that movie was called.

              • I think Scarlett is alright but, pretty overrated as an actress. She's pretty awkward with limited range or depth, imo.

                        She can't act and she's not really all that attractive to me.

                          I find her attractive, but there are definitely hotter women out there. I never watch her movies though. Its easier to just look at pictures of her. Shes painful to see onscreen.

                            Well yeah she cant act at all but, she is amazingly attractive. You can have your Kathy Bates, though. :)

                            • Anyone know what Inception is about? Good looking cast.

                              • No one knows what it's about yet but yeah, the cast is indeed amazing. I'm glad James Franco was busy so, JGL could take his place.

                                edit...I just heard it has a $200 million budget. Wow.
