    What am I missing here?

    Renee Zellweger.

    Reasonably talented actress. No doubt.

    Well cast in Jerry MaGuire and the Bridget Jones Diaries, amongst others. No doubt.

    Consistently cast as the attractive leading lady? Explain.

    Hair and Makeup people are ARTISTS.

    And miracle workers.

    Here's the site you need.

    And before this derails into Why Do Women Have To Wear Makeup? That's not what it's about. It's about Hollywood. They all wear makeup. Even the guys. I mean, Depp and that eyeliner in Pirates?

    BTW, Zellweger was perfectly cast in Cold Mountain, but nowhere deserved an Oscar, let alone a nomination.

    Hollywood sells fantasies, not reality.
    And they do a really good job of it.
    Same goes for all the fashion crap in magazines.

    We all have our good and bad moments. (sadly, I am still waiting for my good ones) Have you not watched the "two face" episode of Seinfeld?

    even with hair and makeup, i still find her pretty unattractive.

    those squinty eyes, tiny mouth, and round face make her look like a pimple ready to be popped.

    Why must a leading lady be attractive? It's much in the eye of the beholder, no?

    While I don't find Zellweger particularly attractive, I do see why she would appeal to others. I could name several leading ladies I find attractive, but they would be a blip on the Attractive Leading Lady scale to someone else.

    Angelina Jolie does very little for me. Nor do many of the women whom plastic surgery has turned into pouty lipped cat women.

    She actually looks a little strange all glammed up and I think her greatest appeal is that she looks like the pretty girl next door.

    if it's a role like briget jones, it doesn't matter.

    if it's a role like she apparently has in leatherheads, it does.

    Airbrushing and make up go a long way...

    Which is why many of us look at our photos and go 'eewwww'. We can't possibly hope to look that good, because we haven't been prepped.

    We're just human folks, after all.

    She's fine it that role. It's a farcical throwback football movie from the goofy commercials I've seen, not The English Patient.

    Yeah I never understood Renee Zellweger, Minnie Driver, and Cameron Diaz getting leading roles. I don't get Drew Barrymore either. All reasonably talented, but if the girls get to see George Clooney and Brad Pitt, we want our leading ladies to be hot too.

    My current favorites to see on the screen are Jessica Biel, Katherine Heigl, and Rachel McAdams.

    No makeup for me. Can't really stand the stuff on my face after racing my bike and sweating for the last two hours or so.

    Its too bad that women feel the need to cover themselves up in makeup. I love it when I go to the gym and girls walk in with makeup. I just have to ask "REALLY?"

    ok. fine.

    apparently my issue is with the marketing department, and her nutritionist.

    If I weren't married, I'd propose to you right now, just off this one post.

    This is where the debate will rage and it's all opinion from here on out.

    Probably to appeal to those of us who don't find the girl next door look attractive. I would take Drew over Jessica or Rachel any day.

    I will take the wild child attitude and look (even though its still vanilla'ed) anyday.

    Oh and Renee and Nicole kidman have always confused my sense of personality. Neither do anything for me in most movies they have made. (in fact more often than not they annoy me)

    I've never been attracted to a woman who wore a lot of makeup. I'd be scared of what they looked like in the morning.

    Nothing better than to wake up in the morning and see your sweetie looking beautiful with absolutely no makeup.

    Lucky for me I was born with dark features, so never really been a need for makeup

    Actually most of the girls I hang with don't wear makeup. Hmmm that's interesting. Probably cause we like dirt on us more!! HEE HEE
