I am only familiar with her because of her being in the U2 video.
But here are a few nice photos of her...

She may not have the best style, but she's one of my favourite actresses. Having said that, she did shine fashion-wise once with that stunning Givenchy dress at the 2004 Academy Awards!
Here are some reason pictures:
