I thought the "10" thread was pretty lively while it lasted, and gave me some insight in some members' tastes...for example, for those who read my contributions to that thread, I tend to lose interest in a person's beauty when the media basically shoves her likeness into our collective faces to make us all agree, "yes this is the epitomy of beauty!" The current Angelina Jolie overkill in every magazine has totally turned me off when once I could feel a stirring of the loins for her...

THIS thread however will celebrate the flip side of beauty: the girl next door. The ideal type of girl to hop on the roller coaster with, camping trips, sunday dinners and horror movies...
I'm not saying the 10 girls cannot be girl next door types, but the "10" girls usually generate a palpable sexuality, while the girl next door types charm us with their entire package (damn, I'm having trouble explaining it, everyone feel free to define the perfect girl next door...) I'd say a great example of a past girl next door would be Debra Winger from the early 80's...

Same rules as the "10" thread :[1] 2 celebrity candidates per posting
[2] chosen candidates selected within the last 10 years
[3] please provide a photo link for easy reference

My first pick has been in a few hollywood movies, pretty good actress, and is usually a standout in every movie that I've seen her in. Amy Smart from the Butterfly Effect and Rat Race

She's usually blonde, but i found this photo and thought it appropriate...

I'm stretching the bounds here for the second one as she's no longer a girl, but I still find her incredibly beautiful. I first discovered her in Labyrinth being chased after by David Bowie (?), but she became my fantasy girl in the outstanding Rocketeer...I become a quivering mess (geez, that sounded bad!) when I see Jennifer Connelly
