The list author says: "This list clearly serves no useful purpose whatsoever other than to kill an hour on a late Sunday night. Of course with media these days, there are thousands of beautiful faces around and we now kind of take them for granted as a dime a dozen. But the women listed here somehow make a connection with me that goes beyond cover girl appeal. For many reasons, they are each quite 'fetching'(to quote Hugh Hewitt). So here are my favorite(hottest)celeb women of all time: **Note: Ran out of space, so Honorable Mention for Kate Beckinsale and Rachel Bilson."
"EMMYLOU HARRIS gets my #1 spot. At 64, she is still gorgeous. Believe it or not, I like her even more since her hair went grey. And then there's that incredible unique voice! (See my BEST OF EMMYLOU HARRIS.)"
"Mariel Hemingway gets my #2 spot. Adorable in this 1979 Woody Allen film (Best Supp Actress nom)and in miniseries AMERIKA. MANHATTAN:Great Gershwin soundtrack. The last 20 mins, beginning with Woody on the couch with the tape recorder is one of my favorite movie sequences."
"Lauren Bacall was dynamic when at 19 when she co-starred with and soon wed 43-year-old co-star Bogart! I found their onscreen chemistry and personalities more interesting than Bogie-Bergman in Casablanca.But Bacall's star burned for only about 6 years."
"ANN COULTER. I love Ann. She's beautiful,smart, quick, fun and usually right. I've always defended her. Though she'll deny it, SOMEtimes a few of her comments seem more of an attention grab than for a constructive purpose."
"RITA COOLIDGE, before and during her 70's marriage to Kristofferson, had appealing style and a Native American/folk/country look. Later, moving into pop, her more citified glossy image was less unique. She always had great pipes though! See my BEST OF LOVELY RITA (COOLIDGE)"
"5 bright lights of FOX News. LAUREN GREEN, 3rd runner-up to Miss America, FOX(and FOXY!) religion correspondent(a Christian too, bonus points!) MEGYN KELLY, DANA PERINO, MOLLY LINE. And to show I'm fair(though some may say a tad unbalanced,teehee)KIRSTEN POWERS, Democrat commentator and hottie!"
"SHELLEY LONG was both pretty and gifted in her great role as Diane Chambers in the first 5 years of this series. I think that next to Mary Tyler Moore, she was our best comedy actress.Yes, I know both still work some."
"FAYE DUNAWAY. Not only is she attractive, but she's also my favorite dramatic actress, very watchable and interesting in everything she does, even the bad films. But THIS is a very good one, despite one of the stupidest and least credible endings in history."
"KAREN ALLEN plays Laura in this film of my favorite play, directed here by Paul Newman. She was also appealing in STARMAN and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. Hasn't done much else of prominence in the past 15 years, though busy."
"PATRICIA HEATON has really grown on me lately. Talented comedy actress in this series and Everybody Loves Raymond despite the fact both characters had their nasty side. But she created a very real and usually likeable character."
"Age(marriage?)have 'done good' for Amy. She's far more attractive than in her early days as a contemporary Christian artist.(Her face has lost the baby fat?)Gave it to husband Vince Gill perhaps? It's okay, Vince jokes about his fluctuations too."
"WHITNEY HOUSTON. A pity the course that her life and career took. She used to be magnetic. Her vocals on 'I Will Always Love You' are heart-breaking and she also does a terrific version of JESUS LOVES ME, a double/single with that song on CD, deleted from the Preacher's Wife soundtrack."
"GRETA GARBO, especially here. The appealing scene where she laughs for the first time in the film. Beautiful in other films, but not as winning. Headline was 'Garbo Laughs'. Haven't seen her movies in a long time but I know she laughed in The Painted Veil too, for one."
"I forget about her because her career never matched her beauty. Her brief recent TV series again spotlighted her profile(pun intended). Haven't seen ENDLESS LOVE, but I suspect it's not about Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles playing tennis."
"DEMI MOORE. I've only seen one other Demi movie, A Few Good Men, and if I've seen her on talk shows, it's so long ago I can't recall. So I'm basing her attractiveness strictly on appearance. We guys are so shallow. She's actually more attractive than 20 years ago (just in case she needs an ego boost these days!)"
"FARRAH FAWCETT. As a teen, I was actually more attracted to brunettes(hence Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith), but having since broadened my horizons, in retrospect I understand why Farrah was every boy's dream."
"EMMA WATSON(Harry Potter series).Young charmer on talk shows. Time flies and soon will be an appealing romantic star. She was 'grossed out' by first screen kiss, but "this too shall pass." Looks 'smashing' in recent publicity shots and in the trailers for NOAH."
