    An observation of mine is when models become actresses , a lot of them don't look beautiful anymore . I think its because on magazines the photographer can pick a good angle while in movies you can only do so much. Or maybe theres a bit
    of a difference when you pose in front of a photographer and a movie camera ...

    or maybe it's just the fact that many are bad at acting, and therefore...they aren't as appealing any more. :innocent:

    I rented The Four Feathers yesterday and was surprised to see Alek Wek in it, playing the role of an enslaved African princess. Even though she was onscreen for only about 15 minutes, she was pretty competent with the material given to her. She had to be defiant, seductive, cunning, etc all in that short time frame. Anyways, you don't see very many actresses in North America who look like her so I hope she gets to do more movie and TV jobs.

    That's pretty interesting- I hadn't heard about that!
    :woot:
    That remade version has always seemed highly unappealing to me, but I would kind of like to watch it now that I know she's in it...
    (Thanks for that, by the way)

    I think that she also took acting back in high school. :flower: So she might actually be alright.

    You're welcome. ;) Actually, models seem to be popping up more and more in movies now. Just off the top of my head:

    Shalom Harlow: How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
    Angela Lindvall: CQ (Awesome soundtrack, somewhat boring movie)
    Tyra Banks: Halloween Resurrection
    James King: action movie with the guy from American Pie and the guy from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
    Amber Valleta: Duplex

    But it looks like Rebecca Romijn-Stamos is the one with the hottest career right now.

    yes she was v. good, like the best in our drama class ( even though I' like to say i was the best :p ) its what she wanted to be before all this modelling stuff came along, but I think she will continue with it after.

    It does annoy me when some models turn to acting because they are hopeless and they've gotten in the easy way!

    I guess models may try their luck at acting (or even singing) because there is more money to be made there?

    Shalom played a model in "In & out" with the hilarious phone scene!
    Too much!
    There were a bunch of models in "CQ" I think Natalia Vodianova was in there as well!
    Jamie King was in Tim Burton's "Planet of the Apes"
    Milla Jovovich got her acting career still being a model (and now she lands roles such as the one she's got on "Resident Evil", and she does it well!)
    Elle McPherson has been in a couple of movies .. one of the most memorable was the Batman version w/George Clooney.
    Claudia Schiffer was in "Love Actually"
    and remember Brooke Shields? (who redeemed herself -and got high praises from the critics- after playing a lesbian on a TV movie)
    Candice Bergen started out as a model ... she was in the cover of VOGUE! ... then she switched to acting.

    Hum ... that's all I can think of right now!
