What is this?

One night I was talking to Dave Leigh & others in Artifiction. The topic of a top 10 "hottie" list came up, and we discussed who would be on our lists. I had a good idea of who would probably make my list, but had never actually typed one up. As I sat down to make a rough draft, names kept popping into my head, and I quickly ran out of places on my list. After I narrowed it down to 10, I decided that I might as well post the others I listed. Every now & then I'll add a few more to the list. I don't really expect anyone to keep up with this or to make this a regular project. Posting only 10 seems too...incomplete...and it would bug me to have it unfinished.

#6 Kate Beckinsale

First time I saw Kate Beckinsale was in college when I took Theater 101. Thankfully this did not involve me performing in any way, but was just a course about the history of the theater. Aside from a lot of reading, we had to go review plays & watched a lot of movies together in class. One of the movies we watched was "Much Ado About Nothing". I can't say I had a crush on Kate, but I did think she was cute as hell. She's one of the women that each time I see her in a project I think she's more beautiful than the time before.

Watch It:
Much Ado About Nothing (1993)
Pearl Harbor (2001)
Serendipity (2001)
Underworld (2003)
Underworld: Evolution (2006)
Click (2006)
Vacancy (2007)
Underworld 4: New Dawn (2012) - assuming I'll like this :p

Kate Beckinsale Sings A Chanson
Making a music or dance connection in this entry was difficult. Only thing I could really dig up was this song from Marie-Louise ou la permission (1995). I probably won't be able to make a music or dance connection with each entry.

"I dropped out of Oxford, and now I only speak Russian with the woman who gives me a bikini-wax. See what Hollywood does to you?" - Kate
