Models can do it

I assume that Hollywood stars must hate super models. Why?

Because these beautiful young ladies step into their business and divert the lights away. In just a few minutes of screen time,
beauty can absolutely steal the attention without saying a word, no matter how hard that top-billed actresses had worked! These super models are beautiful, sexy, stunning, but most of all they are talented. They simply have the touch of gold!

To name just a few of them,
Christie Brinkley played that girl in the red Ferrari in “National Lampoon’s Vacation” (1983) and made everyone remember her part, without even having her name in the movie! Naomi Campbell was that breath-taking singer in “Cool as Ice” (1991) and Victoria Secret’s Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio just
three seconds of screen time in Casino Royale (2006) were enough to make Bond fans believe that she should be the main Bond-Girl.

Of course I can’t forget Lily Cole in “The Imaginarium of doctor
Parnassus” (2009), because I am a huge fan of Lily and of that trippy fantasy film by Terry Gilliam.

Carla Bruni appeared in “Midnight in Paris” (2011) representing the Woody Allen-woman: intelligent and alluring. Gemma Ward as Tamara, the deadly young mermaid in “The Pirates of the Caribean: On Stranger Tides”, was actually not far from her usual fashion-self!

Agyness Deyn was a surprise for everyone with her small part as goddess Aphrodite in the “Clash of the Titans” (2010) and now she is having her first lead role in the new movie “Pusher”, which has just been out in theaters.

Last, but not least, the Australian super model, Abbey Lee Kershaw, is going to appear in the latest Mad Max blockbuster next to Charlize Theron, which is expected to be out in theaters in the beginning of 2013.
