Due to Crash's continued awards season buzz (I've been predicting it since the first week of November to much griping from non-believers) --it's now got coveted PGA and WGA nominations and will certainly be a nominee at SAG tomorrow-- and as sort of an olive branch to Thandie Newton who I've marginally dissed before for her uneven performances, I thought I'd point her out as one hottie boom body. Just look at her.
My favorite film performance of Thandie's is her first --in the Australian charmer Flirting(which also features a terrific early performance from Nicole Kidman). She was also a welcome distraction from Tom Cruise's relentless machismo in MI:2 (or however you're supposed to punctuate that sequel). Thandie's next project? Co-starring with Will Smith in the 2006 drama The Pursuit of Happyness. You can read my interview with the editor of this film here.
