The Top 5 Women

Evil Jim and I were joking about our Top Five’s on Facebook.  I said that Christina Hendricks was my #3.  We joked about them, and then I decided to go ahead and do a Top Five list.  Now, these may not be the most beautiful women in the world… but they just do it for me.  I’ll watch them in any movie.

1.  Jennifer Connelly.  I fell in love with her way back when the movie “Labyrinth” came out.
2.  Tabrett Bethell.  Her character “Cara” in “The Legend of the Seeker”.
3.  Christina Hendricks.  “Yosafbridge” from Firefly.  Mad Men.  Redheaded, full figured, no appologies.  The phrase “Special Hell” pretty much defines her.
4.  Jennifer Love Hewitt.  Soft and feminine, but with a strong character.  Just watch Ghost Whisperer.
5.  Monica Bellucci.  The goddess from Italy.  Need I say more?

    I can agree with all five. Maybe not the order, but all five women.

  2. 12/08/2012    

    My top 5 draws from my youth to today.
    #1 Christina Hendricks… she hits all of my buttons.
    #2 Lynda Carter from her Wonder Woman days… I think she was my first celebrity lust, before I fully understood what lust was.
    #3 Alyson Hannigan Redhead, goofy, smoking hot… And this one time, at band camp…
    #4 Dana Delany from Tour of Duty days… Oh man…
    #5 Phoebe Cates I get a boner anytime Moving in Stereo comes on.

    Yea, my tastes were formed in my youth… and my fantasies have held up better than the actual people.
    Hell, they have held up better than they ever actually were.
    But… I DO NOT CARE.
    These are the famous women that haunt my dreams.

      An excellent roster.

    • Scott1506's Gravatar Scott1506

      I’d take Allyson Hannigan to band camp anytime she wanted to go…

      • 12/09/2012    

        Allyson would very likely be the #6.

  3. New Chris's Gravatar New Chris

    Oh, I don’t know, maybe I am cynical, but I’ve learned there is so much more to life than just pretty.

    No particular order:

    -Claudia Cardinale
    -Daniela Bianchi
    -Christina Hendricks
    -Isla Fisher
    -Emma Watson

  5. WEKM's Gravatar WEKM

    I fail, because my top five are all fictional characters.

  6. 12/08/2012    

    Let’s go old school.
    1. Sophia Loren
    2. Gina Lolabrigida (?)
    3. Diana Riggs
    4. Julie Numar
    5. Ann Margaret !
    Raquel Welch gets Honerable mention…

  7. 12/09/2012    

    1. Concur on Jennifer Connelly. She’s got ‘it.’
    2. Keira Knightly, because attitude.
    3. Christina Hendricks, needs no explanation.
    4. Concur again on Monica Bellucci
    5. Olivia Wilde

    • 12/09/2012    

      I considered Olivia Wilde, but JLH beat her out.
      If this was a top 10, OW would probably be on this the list.

  8. nutz's Gravatar nutz

    so monochromatic

    • 12/09/2012    

      That’s racist.

  9. Ron's Gravatar Ron

    Drew Barrymore all the way. Beauty inside and out.

  10. Monte's Gravatar Monte

    Only five ? !!
    Why some women will feel I ignored them, and didn’t count them worthy of my manly ways and charms, if I did not name them.
    You have a nice list for a starter pack.
    let’s add:
    Virgina Madsen
    Mimi Rodgers – Very smart, mature and simmering.
    Heather Graham
    Tia Carrere = exotic
    and to be named at a later date. ;-)

  11. sarge712's Gravatar sarge712

    Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica, Hawaii 5-0)
    Rachel Weisz (when she was Evie in The Mummy)
    Lynn Collins (Wolverine, John Carter. A younger version of my wife)
    Moon Bloodgood (we have a police dispatcher who looks lke her)
    Lisa Lambe from Celtic Woman. This redhead will melt your ice cold heart

    I think the attitude the first four women have is as attractive to me as any of their good looks

    • Shillelagh's Gravatar Shillelagh

      Na lad, Lisa is beautiful but there is something about a lass with a fiddle.

  12. Sulaco's Gravatar Sulaco

    Sorry guys you have to add “Major Samantha Carter” (Amanda Tappen) Star Gate SG-1 to the top five list. Oh man when she dresses down….yousa!

  13. Sulaco's Gravatar Sulaco

    And need I mention (to move into the 21st centurey) Kate Beckinsale!! I mean pleather and jump a building in a single bound, come on.

    • 12/09/2012    

      Kate Beckisale is in my top 10.


      • 12/09/2012    

        Yup. She is the only reason to watch Van Helsing.

  14. tim ferrell's Gravatar tim ferrell

    representing my age group,
    Raquel Welch – still a hottie
    Anne Margaret

    Marilyn Monroe.
    Dana Delany
    Rachel Weisz

    Thus endeth the lesson…

  17. Sulaco's Gravatar Sulaco

    Two words: Megan Scott

  18. Michael's Gravatar Michael

    I don’t know who some of them are but a couple from my personal favorites are
    1 Elle Mcpherson Can’t act her way out of a paper bag but who else remembers Sirens.
    2 Kathy Ireland Another non actor but how many SI covers
    3 Rachel Weiss
    4 The little Swiss tennis star from the 90’s can’t remember her name but I sure did watch a lot of women’s tennis then
    5 Linda Fiorentino can’t spell her name but damn always did like her in most of her roles.

    • Marc's Gravatar Marc

      Martina Hingis getting some love?

  19. toadold's Gravatar toadold

    Jessica Biel.

    • 12/11/2012    

      I considered Biel… in some roles she is extremely attractive, but in others she is a very stark average. But she does have one of the best ass’s in hollywood. If not the best.

  20. Lorenzo's Gravatar Lorenzo

    #1 Jennifer Connolly
    #1 Charlize Theron
    #3 Jessica Beil
    #4 Kate Beckinsale
    #5 Catherine Heagle

    The spelling on each may be wrong, and they don’t all fall in that order necessarily, but I’ll even watch bad movies with these ladies in them.

    • 12/12/2012    

      Your number five is probably my #7. She is amazing.

  21. toadold's Gravatar toadold

    I think that it is possible that one of the reasons the Biel gets steady work is that she can present the visual image that a director wants. I really didn’t notice her until I saw her in the “Illusionist”. It seems like with just a change in hair style her face will change shape. Ah the magic of Hollywood. I haven’t made up my mind on how good of an actress she really is.
