Alright, I think we've pretty much established the fact that I'm not easily impressed by good looks. Hot tush, sexy bod, sun-kissed skin... I'll look right past that unless there's at least some glimmer of intelligence or talent underneath that physique. Usually, that is.
Well, she's intelligent compared to THIS guy.
But every once in a while, I have to admit, I too fall victim to beauty for the sake of beauty--even if the brains behind it are not so evident at first glance. That's the case with Katherine Heigl. The girl is beautiful with a capital wow. Absolute perfection in the shape of a human being. And it's more than the perfect symmetry of her eyebrows, the perfect
shape of her nostrils, or the perfect curve of her earlobes (not to mention her other curves... or the fact that she actually has curves, for that matter).
She's not a doctor, but... she sure looks good playing one on tv.
No, there's definitely more to Katherine Heigl than just physical perfection. It might have to do with the way she can go from the highly intelligent and overly emotional Dr. Izzie Stephens on Grey's Anatomy to the successful but aloof mother-to-be in Knocked Up, to a scantily-clad and drop-dead gorgeous model in various magazines (she was #12 of Maxim's Hot 100 in 2006!), although not necessarily in that order. Or it might be that she actually is intelligent, funny,
and compassionate, but to be honest, even if she does have those qualities, they seem to have been overshadowed by her own beauty. In any case, her looks alone are sure to take her far in life--or at least in Hollywood--so keep an eye out for her.
...and if the doctor suit doesn't do it for ya--this might.
But if the thought of seeing her as the hormonal pregnant lady in Judd Apatow's romantic comedy doesn't thrill you, don't fret. You can catch her on the big screen again later this year in Caffeine (also starring Mena Suvari), or as a perpetual bridesmaid in 27 Dresses (opening in 2008). ‘Course, you could also check out the thousands of hot photos of her all over the web. They last longer.
