Lena’s Top 10 Hollywood Women


This post is by virtue the same one as my Top 10 Hollywood Men post, except this one’s my female Freebies List! Feel free to comment with your own top 3, 5, or 10 list 🙂


5jennifer 1. Jennifer Garner – The quintessential full package – she’s got the looks, the charm, intelligence, dimples, kick-ass acting versatility, ability to juggle multiple roles in real life, and generally pure awesomeness. I loved her as Sydney on Alias, giggled with her in 13 Going on 30, and swooned in Valentine’s Day. I’ve also met her at a Broadway performance of Cyrano De Bergerac, and she was fantastic as Roxanne! I’ve been in love with her for about 7 years now, and the ‘womance’ will likely endure for a lot longer! She’s definitely #1 in my book.


0_61_070208_shannen 2. Shannen Doherty – She plays my absolute favorite character on the original 90210. I love her looks and her fiery attitude. Despite playing the ‘bitchy’ character on the show, I always loved her strength and thought she was a lot more vulnerable than she let on. I also loved her on Dancing with the Stars, and it sucks she was voted off first! But alas, still love her, and looking forward to her next endeavor.

Lena’s Top 10 Hollywood Men, 2.0


If you recall on an episode of Friends, everyone’s allowed a list of celebrities to adore from afar. Freebies, if you will. In fact, now that I look it up – they actually called it their “Freebies list!” Chandler chose Kim Basinger, Cindy Crawford, Halle Berry, Yasmine Bleeth, and Jessica Rabbit. Rachel’s were Chris O’Donnell, John F. Kennedy, Jr., Daniel Day Lewis, Sting, and Parker Stevenson (Ep 3.05).

When explaining the Freebie List, the conversation went like this:

Chandler: “Well, we have a deal where we each get to pick five different celebrities that we can sleep with, and the other one can’t get mad.”

Ross: “Ah, the heart of every healthy relationship: Honesty, respect, and sex with celebrities.”

So there you have it – the essence of the list. All of us have those special someones on the silver screen we fancy, and this is an ode to mine – except I expanded it to ten because I simply couldn’t choose just five! I’m sure if Dave had a blog, he’d be fast on my heels creating his own Freebies List 😉

These ten begin with my most dedicated loves – the ones I would tell you I love if I was awoken from a deep deep sleep, and work my way down.

1040907962_small 1. Luke Perry – In my dreams, I was the Brenda to his Dylan as he wooed me with his disarming smile and poufy James Dean hair. Luckily, his role as Dylan required many shirtless scenes on the beach, as he was quite the surfer. He was the one guy I watched it for most – not Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, or Ian Ziering. There aren’t many more words I can use to describe him – he’s a classic love in my life, and he’s definitely at the top of my list.

2. Lance Bass – He had at me at goodbye – Bye Bye Bye, that is. When all the girls were swooning for JT, I was stuck on this cutie with the sweet smile, gentle eyes, charisma, and deep voice. I had his posters plastered all over my walls, too! Over the past few years, he’s also bulked up deliciously. And I loved his dork/cutie character on On the Line. He’s so much more than a boybander to me, and I can proudly say that meeting him is one of the best moments of my life thus far!

Alias 2.0 and the Reboot Mania

This is the first time in about 5 days that I’ve had a chance to log on to the net – it’s been an interesting detox. I’ve had access to “mobile” internet, but all it’s good for is Facebook. No, really. Anything more complex, and my phone cowers in cyberspace, whimpering “insufficient memory” and “request failure” like a mangy idiot.

Well anyways – my boyfriend and I have been in the NJ/NY area for the past week. It’s been an incredible trip, and one that I can’t wait to write about in detail. Just popping in to say ‘ello mate, and catch up on my web haunts.

Honestly, I didn’t really miss much online – except, for this little gem of speculation: a possible Alias reboot. Some ‘credible’ source in ABC claims there’s talk of a new series with ‘elements’ from the original. When I saw the title of the headline, my heart fluttered a bit. But then I realized, they’d be taking out the most important part: Jennifer Garner. She and Victor Garber (and for eye candy: Michael Vartan and Bradley Cooper) were the foundations of the show. Yes, it spiraled out of control around season 3 with JJ Abrams’ notoriously strange plotlines, but the show in general is one of my favorites, and I can’t in good conscience support a reboot without Jen that’s intended simply to soak up the disillusioned Lost fans.

While I’m on the subject, can I kvetch a bit about my disdain for reboots? They’re hardly ever necessary. I’ll go out on a limb for comic book characters…I can see the creative need for one, possibly. Still not necessary, but at least the directors really do revamp, not just regurgitate. But honestly, I don’t see the need for remakes of television shows (i.e. another one of my faves: the original BH 90210), especially when they’re iconic on their own, and ended only a decade ago. It shows a deep, deep lack of originality in our day. What will they ‘remake’ and destroy next, I Love Lucy? Three’s Company? Friends? Titanic? Forrest Gump? Mrs. Doubtfire??
