In sports and in Hollywood, sometimes rookies burst on the scene and leave us wanting more.

At times we think “There’s no way they can keep up that scorching pace for their whole career” (see: Kevin Maas, Yahoo Serious). For these five actresses, the way they broke through was just too illustrious to sustain over a whole career- but for a fleeting moment, they were at the pinnacle of hotness.

January Jones

Introduced as Michelle’s sister Cadence, I was as captivated as Stifler and Finch were by this new talent. It’s not that she’s grown unattractive since then (though this visual doesn’t help), for me it’s been the gradual reveal of her vapid, dull personality that sapped her momentum. Her spot hosting SNL in 2009 was nearly unwatchable, and she did her best to try to ruin a great X-Men character.

    It’s a little odd how much Cameron in some of those Mask scenes looks like Emily Browning in Sucker Punch. She may not be *as* hot as that bust out performance in The Mask but in Charlie’s Angels and Bad Teacher she’s still pretty ssssssmokin!

      Yes, Emily Browning comparison is a good one. I still pause to look at any Sucker Punch promotional stuff due to how hot she looked on that poster/movie cover.

  • Brian Morin

    Cameron Diaz has just not aged well at all. To be honest, I really had trouble getting through Bad Teacher because of how she looks in it. I just miss the Cameron from The Mask or There’s Something About Mary.

      Looks aside, her character in that movie was just ugly. For someone who was supposed to be the protagonist it was hard to warm up to her. Lucy Punch was hilarious in that though, as was Timberlake and the little of Jason Segel we got.

        First off – I agree that Diaz was never hotter than she was in The Mask, though that scene in Mary where you see her changing comes awfully, awfully close.

        That said, aside from times when she looks too damn tan, I’d say she’s held up pretty damn well. The Mask was damn near 20 years ago – let’s not lose sight of that.

    I still enjoy the looks that are Kate Bosworth and I still think 1994 Cameron Diaz is just as ugly as 2012 Cameron Diaz.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Bosworth is definitely still hot, I just don’t think Superman Returns Bosworth and Win a Date Bosworth compare to Blue Crush Boz. Diaz is one of those ya either like or hate. She is still ok for me, but nothing like The Mask.

      • http://manilovefilms.com Dylan

        I’ve never been all that attracted to Bosworth. She’s anywhere from Meh- to Meh+ depending on the day.

    I think Cameron was hotter in Charlie’s Angels … But every thing else is spot on GREAT idea

      I will admit to Cam looking good in Angels. Thanks for the feedback – I value it coming from someone who has cornered the market on #appreciation!

    And Seth Cohen was every girl’s hope of finding an adorably charming geek to adore her & spend forever with:-) plus, he was just awesome. Who WOULDN’T want to hang out with him?!

      Whoa! Give my wife some time stuck in a chair and she starts readin’ the site! And commenting! …better start watching what I write :)

  • James

    Boz, Diaz, Barton & Fisher definitely. I’d argue that Jones is just as hot today. Except for that certain Mad Men ep..

  • BM Punk

    hah great idea for a list.

    Agree with everyone on this list, however I thought bosworth was a knock-out as Lois lane. She’s my 3rd least favorite LL but still a knock-out.

    • Howard Decker

      I didn’t dislike her as LL as much as many people did. I did however LOVE Amy Adams. But Erica Durance is hard to beat.

  • Dan

    Actress: Kelly McGillis. Callsign: Charlie.

    • Howard Decker

      YES YES YES. There couldn’t be a better example.

  • brutony

    Margot Kidder was friggin HOT during Superman-at least the first two, that is-WTF are you talking about? Shes good looking, ballsy, and funny to boot-THATS what Lois Lanes about-NOT as just a Beauty Queen. That said, Erica Durance is a Stone Cold FOX!

  • MrRealityTalk

    No chics are as hot after the first time you see them… Sorta like cars, soon as you drive them they lose half their value and nobody wants a beat up used one with a sloppy loose gear box & a lot of hard miles on it! Especially actresses, they don’t hold up well due to the massive amounts of liquor, heroine and cocaine it takes to block the fact that they have to get slammed by disgusting 50+ year old Jew agents, managers, directors, producers and accountants on demand to maintain steady work out of their minds. Why do you think their relationships rarely last more then 6 months? Verbal descriptive nightmares accompanied by violent defensive attacks in their sleep will turn a guy off in no time no matter how rich and hot they are! You would be better off banging a homeless crack whore, they only have to put out 5 times a day to support their habits. They bore out the boy stars too! Look at Corey and Corey, the one snuffed himself due to getting drugged then his back door stuffed so much! Look at that Bieber kid from Canada, all those black dudes don’t go buying skinny little faggy boys $750,000 cars unless they are trying to shut them up! The only way to know if he farts these days is by the smell without a doubt! The entire Zionist Cabal entertainment industry is one big satanic cesspool endlessly discharging its sewage and rectally obliterated victims onto our screens and streets!
