Sometimes things are so obvious you just can't see them.
I mean I do this week in and week out and I try to be topical and/or timely with my selections, but somehow, and believe me, I don't know how, I've overlooked Charlize Theron.
The obvious time to use Ms. Theron was during the World Cup. It was, after all, held in her home country, South Africa. Didn't even cross my mind. I made what I thought was a good choice, and I still stand by it, but in retrospect, this was a no brainer.
Do you remember the first time you saw this week's cheesecake?
Opening night of 2 Days in the Valley and she was getting freaky with James Spader and in a cat fight with the internet's (then) favorite pinup, Teri Hatcher. In the post Pulp Fiction landscape, 2 Days wasn't Pulp Fiction, but it had a good cast and was well executed.
Since then she's gone on to star with Ben Affleck in Reindeer Games, a giant gorilla in Mighty Joe Young and cement her geek cred with a starring role in Aeon Flux. Oh yeah, she also won an Oscar for uglying up and playing a serial killer in Monster.
According to Huffington Post, she's single and ready to mingle.
