There is something about Toni Collette

I first saw her in Muriel’s Wedding. And I was hooked. Everything I saw later just added to the allure. Sixth Sense. The Japanese Story. In her Shoes.

She has large teeth, a big bottom and thick legs. More full hipped than petite. In a way, she is the antithesis of a typical Hollywood beauty, a woman who is not the sum of her parts. Because when she smiles, she is the sexiest woman alive. And there is an amazing element of honesty in her performances that has you rooting for her.

I wish I could get a copy of Little Miss Sunshine.
