she's maintained most of her attractiveness into her 40s which is impressive. Having said that, if we're limiting our selection to famous actresses that are getting up there in age, Kate Beckinsale is a lot prettier.
I agree, don't see the appeal. Very bland all-american look with fake blonde hair. I can see the average joe who enjoys applebees and white bread thinking she's attractive... or a pakistani cab driver, but she doesn't hold a candle to even most of the chicks in the NSFW threads here.
