Ever since she uttered those words in Alien, “Step away from her you bitch”, I have been in love with Sigourney Weaver. As Ripley she was the ultimate in kick ass women. None of this waiting around for the men to rescue you rubbish, nope, she grabbed a gun and took care of matters herself.
All I have to do is hear her voice and I start giggling to myself. She is one of the funniest people I have ever watched and she is out and proud. Ms Wanda Sykes takes to Álainn or Appallin’ and I dare you to vote the latter!
I know your probably thinking “who?”, but stay with me. I wrote this piece about my new obsession, Once upon a Time, but I feel I didn’t get across just how hot the main character is. Or I just want an excuse to Google pics of her. SPOILERS!!!!
Are you the kind of person who like a cinematic challenge? Who likes to chat about a film all the way home, reading new things into it as you listen to your pal’s opinion? If so, avoid Haywire, maintaining the distance of at least a roundhouse kick.
Beyonce seems to be the woman who has it all. She’s talented, stunning, has a happy marriage, a stable career and just keeps on climbing the ladder of life. But she’s so much more than a ‘tick the boxes of life’ kind of woman.
They say good things come in small packages and if anyone embodies that philosophy it has to be Kylie. Born in Oz in 1968 Kylie was a child actor who came to worldwide fame in the soap Neighbours (every needs good ones) playing Charlene Robinson, a garage mechanic.
Fair Natalie, you have come a long way since Leon. I always feel a bit old seeing child actresses grow up right before your eyes and then do a double take when
you hear they are not 12 any more.
Good Morning Gaelickers! I hope you are wrapped up warm wherever you might be, whether snuggled in bed with the morning papers or out and about having Sunday brunch, tis a cold one out there. So I said to myself, what better way to get the Gaelickers warmed up than a post about beautiful ladies?
You know the way we all have that certain voice that just flicks our bean? That just seems to be have the same resonance as the strumming within? Well, word in Gaelick Towers has it that Imelda May’s voice does just that to our fearless Webmaster. Johnny may have a boom boom, but Webbie got a throb throb. I know I’ll suffer for that sentence.
For the discerning appraisal of our Álainn or Appalling readers this week is RTÉ’s peripatetic pretty lady, Kathryn Thomas. The tantalizing Mzz Thomas has trekked far from her native Blockbog Road, County Carlow, at the helm of RTÉ travel show No Frontiers. But Thomas has definitely not been the sluggish sun-lounger type
This AorA is all about Glee. We love it, you love it and what’s not to love? It’s guaranteed to put a big, stupid grin on your face. However, here is our conundrum; with so much goodness, who do we ask you to vote for? Why choose just one when we can plumb for a double order of yummy?
Born Dana Elaine Owens, Queen Latifah is a woman of many talents. As a rapper, actress and singer she has won many an award including a Golden Globe, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and a Grammy, not to mention her Oscar and Emmy nominations.
You know you’ve enjoyed a good year if Susan Sarandon is in there, she’s never been bad in anything, from romcom to drama, the woman can do anything. Recently she’s been busy dragging bad writing up into come classy roles. She’s at that stage in her life where Hollywood has no idea what to do with her.
Anne Hathaway is one of those movie stars who seem as normal as is possible when you’re a movie star. She comes across as down-to-earth, good craic and lacking in diva overtones. If this is the product of PR, I don’t really care to be honest; she’s a cutie.
It must be pretty sweet for Mariska these days; finally she’s known for her work and not her mother. Jayne Mansfield, right, was a sex-bomb actress in the 1950’s and 1960’s. She was only 34 when she died in a car crash in 1967, with her three kids in the back seat. Mariska was just three so probably has no memory of the woman who would over-shadow her early acting career.
Lucille Frances Ryan was born back in 1968 in Auckland, New Zealand, the fifth of seven children. With five brothers, she was always going to be a bot of a tom-boy and Lucy was always up to her neck in it with them; riding horses, climbing trees and enjoying the Kiwi outdoors.
Rachel Maddow may not think she’ll ever be an anchor-babe, but from the reaction to her since she appeared on US television in 2008, it seems she’s just the eye (and brain) candy we’ve all be waiting for. A Stanford and Oxford educated former Rhodes Scholar, Rachel spent her early years as an activist for … [Read more...]
