Fellas, which actress makes you swoon and you want to marry her so that you don't care how bad the movie is?

This used to be Jennifer Connelly, but Zooey Deschanel seems to have captured the title.

I bet these actresses are undervalued in that they will draw more audience per salary $ than your average 'bond girl' or any conventional sexy lady.

(I think Ebert has a thing for Rosario Dawson, but this might be animal rather than he wants to marry her)

I would say Deneuve, but then I really didn't like Repulsion

...erm, there isn't one.

Jennifer Connelly's a good call, I don't think I've ever liked a movie she's been in or thought I'd want to see it for any reason other than her being in it.

I don't have one of these, I don't think. BUT I would like to mention that I watched like 30 minutes of a movie called One-Eyed Monster because it starred Amber Benson from Buffy. It was about a snowbound porn set on which some kind of alien takes over Ron Jeremy's penis, and then the penis goes around killing everyone. At some point there was dialogue roughly as follows:

MAN: If we stay here we'll be sitting ducks for that thing.
WOMAN: It's not a thing.
MAN: Ron Jeremy was a great guy. I know you dug on him. But he's dead now. And that may be his dick out there, but it's a mass murderer.

Kissed is kind of a bittersweet, thoughtful feminist take on Jörg Buttgereit's 'Nekromantic 2', pretty good one in the 'falling for a girl with some issues that she doesn't really see as issues' category (even thought the film's from her point of view), I remember liking it and occasionally having to remind myself that it really exists
