Why do I love this girl to bits? Before I watched her on TV and in movies I could not believe she was a Hollywood star -she was just so... I dont want to say ugly but... she didn't have a very orthodox or traditionally beautiful face. But years of watching Buffy and obsessing over the show and seeing her everyday made me fall in love with her face. Whereas before her nose bothered me, now it seems architectural. Whereas her eyebrows used to seem droopy, they now seem like the natural alternative to the endless browlifted celebrities. Her skin went from pasty to angelic and dewy. She has grown endlessly and she is one of those actresses you have to know to love because then her personality comes through. In interviews she seems brilliant, driven and quick-witted -as a co-star once commented, a 'whippersnapper'. As for her fashion sense, she rarely gets it wrong but is overlooked as a fashion icon. Her profile seems very low at the moment because without Buffy and without an obvious star-making movie vehicle she is not the starlet du jour... which is strange because most people know who she is and because I remember when she was the Micha Barton of the 90s. I suppose that is why she doesn't have a thread but I thought I'd start one as a thankyou for Buffy and as a toast to her career to come.
