Female Hottie: Penelope Cruz
I like to refer to Penelope Cruz as Salma Hayek-lite. She's not as, shall we say, "well-blessed" as Salma, and is thinner. All that aside, she's still hot and talented, so is it any wonder she makes the list? Could you say no to that face?
Male Hottie: Channing Tatum
I swear I was going to get beaten if I didn't put this guy up here this week, so ladies, here you go. Channing's star is shining brighter than ever due to his role in this summers G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. He's come a long way since Step It Up or that strip club where he used to work. While you're out there drooling over his 6-pack, don't fret, I'm sure there'll be many more photo shoots and gratuitous shirtless scenes in his movies.
Random Hottie from a movie or TV show seen this week: Jamie Chung
There aren't many reality "stars" that go on to have actual careers in front of the camera doing things other than more reality. As a matter of fact, aside from Jamie, Elizabeth Hasslebeck is the only one I can think. Since Real World: San Diego ended, Jamie has been building her resume with stints on ER, Days of Our Lives, Castle, an ABC Family movie "event" Samurai Girl, and a starring role (which earned her this spot) in Dragonball Evolution. Let's hope we see more of her acting and that she doesn't fall back into reality hell.
MILF: Lucy Lawless
Lucy Lawless is best known around the world from her infamous role as Xena on Xena: Warrior Princess. She also is many a fanboy's dream to have as Wonder Woman...at least she was when she was in Xena shape. Still, can you belive she has 3 kids? Her career hasn't stalled since she hung up Xena's leather bustier, but at the same time it hasn't exactly taken off. Her biggest post-Xena role was on Battlestar Galactica. I'm sure we'll see more of her here and there. Who knows? Maybe lightning will strike again and she'll become another iconic character.
Classic/Retro Hottie: Ann-Margaret
I was watching Mad Men last Sunday and they showed a clip of Ann-Margaret singing "Bye, Bye Birdie" from the movie of the same name. It then hit me, that I've seen and/or heard this woman in many movies/TV shows, but it never really hit me how gorgeous she is. Although she is currently, semi-retired due to some sort of health issue, she can still be seen in the occasional movie role here and there. Keep an eye peeled, you never know when or where she'll show up.
