Women Who are More Beautiful than Julia Roberts

Friday night, my friend K and I were talking about Creepy. (Picture omitted for sanity reasons. Or reasons of insanity. Your choice.) I showed her a few pictures and she said, “He’s more ugly than creepy. xD”

I thought I’d said that Julia wasn’t much to look at either, but records show I said, “Well, considering that I’m sure I can name at least half a dozen women I find prettier than Julia…*nasty snicker*”

And I did.

Except last night, the list grew by three.

So now I bring you The Top Nine Women I Think are More Beautiful than Julia Roberts. (They were originally in no particular order, but I created one when preparing for this entry this afternoon. Like Creepy, their names are links to their IMDb pages.) (Oh, and I’m using full names where I can get them…just because I like to. 🙂 )


Irina Pantaeva

(Model, Actress–Mortal Kombat: Annihilation)

I’ve seen MK2 about a million times since its release fourteen years ago and I still can’t get over how lovely Irina is. I think it’s the exotic “Russian Eskimo” element that catches me every time.


Mariska Magdolna Hargitay

(Actress–Law and Order: Special Victims Unit)

I think for me, a major part of Mishka’s1 attraction is her magnetism. She’s lovely, but she also exudes a sort of charisma and she’s wonderful to watch onscreen, especially when she gets angry. There are a lot of great (fictional) female crime fighters, past and present (and a few are on this list), but Mishka holds a special place in my heart.


María José “Cote” de Pablo Fernandez


If you have never seen Cote kick ass (or sing, for that matter), you don’t know what you’re missing! This pretty Chilean actress does all that and plays the piano, too! Forget Selma Hayek…Cote is my “Latina lover” of choice!


Maddie Hasson

(Actress–The Finder)

Okay, since she’s only seventeen, Maddie hasn’t quite crossed the line from “cute” to “beautiful” just yet, but she has a great start. Plus, there’s no one on television quite like Willa Monday. (Except maybe Kat Dennings, when she’s in full-on “Max” persona.) Heck, there’s no show quite like Finder, either!


Heidi Klum

(Actress, model)

I think Heidi is just adorable! Not only is she pretty, but she’s peppy and full of life. Every time she stops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she’s so much fun to listen to…and she practically bounces off the screen!

Three (TIE)

Sandra Annette Bullock and Jennifer Leann Carpenter

(Actress–The Blind Side), (Actress–Dexter)

When I was looking at these wonderful women and trying to decide who goes where, I realized how much each made me think of the other and how I couldn’t keep them apart. So they’re tied. Sandy is a funny, talented actress and I love Jen because not only is she pretty, but she but so much emotion and heart into playing Deb Morgan. If there are any ladies on my list who deserve to share the bronze medal, it’s definitely these two.


Alison Elizabeth Larter

(Model, Actress–Heroes)

I didn’t watch much of Heroes, but when I did, I couldn’t help noticing the fantastic Ali Larter. Blonde hair, death stare…wowza! Toward the end of the series, I didn’t think she looked all that great, so I originally put her toward the bottom of the list. This picture changed my mind. How can you not notice her?


Stana Katic


I’m not going to describe how I feel about her, because I simply can’t. I’ll just say, “If I was bisexual or a lesbian, I’d be all over her in a heartbeat!” and leave it at that. 😉

Now don’t go getting any crazy ideas like, “I bet she thinks she’s more beautiful than Julia!” because I can tell you I don’t.

I’ve never thought I was more beautiful than anybody. When I have one of those rare days when I look in the mirror and think I look pretty, I rejoice–because despite what I’ve been told over and over again, I think I’m simply plain.

No, this is how I see the two of us:

The only difference between the square on the left and the square on the right is the one on the left is very famous and has had a long movie career. The one on the right is simply an “Average Jane” novelist who is studying to be a paralegal. That’s all.2


1 “Mishka” is my nickname for her. ♥

2 In case I have to spell it out for you, the point I’m trying to make is that, as far as looks go, I think Julia and I are both plain women and that’s all there is to it.
