50 Girls, 50 States: South Carolina-Wyoming
Mary Louise Parker (South Carolina)
I have no idea what a “Palmetto” is, but all I need to know is that Mary Louise Parker comes from “The Palmetto State”, therefore making South Carolina amazing. Not only is Parker beautiful, but she is funny as well. She got her first big breakthrough in the hit Fried Green Tomatoes, but Parker currently keeps fans satisfied on the hit Showtime series, Weeds.
January Jones (South Dakota)
If the “Mount Rushmore” state could add one more face to the mountain, it should be January Jones. And it should include her body. This South Dakota actress has appeared on television and in film, but is most noted for her roles in ‘We Are Marshall’ and on the hit AMC series ‘Mad Men’.
Megan Fox (Tennessee)
If “The Volunteer State” has any more women that look as hot as Megan Fox, then I volunteer to move there. Megan, who was born in Oak Ridge, Tennesee, has had a fairly successful career as a model and now is landing bigger and bigger roles in movies. She first began gaining popularity after starring in Transformers. With a sequel under her belt and a neo-western filmed, she’s sure to keep the boys busy for the next few years, even if some incredibly stupid things do come out of her mouth every now and again.
Jennifer Love Hewitt (Texas)
They say everything is bigger in Texas, and nobody has bigger, er, heart, than Jennifer Love Hewitt. Hewitt first popped on our radar back in the nineties and she has been a constant ever since then. She has a wildly successful career, including her role on her television show, Ghost Whisperer. Hewitt has been featured on 14 FHM Hot lists as well as 3 times on Maxim’s Hot 100, where she just recently came in at 10th.
Julianne Hough (Utah)
Julianne Hough comes from “The Beehive State”, and the country music critics are certainly buzzing around her. Hough got her big break ballroom dancing on the ABC Reality show, Dancing With the Stars. But she is currently making a name for herself in the country music industry, which is surprisingly supposedly one of the most difficult music industries to break into. Hough has released a hit CD, won dance titles, landed a boyfriend, and remained gorgeous while doing so. Can you say superwoman?
The “Green Mountain” State of Vermont is responsible for producing the beautiful R&B singer that is JoJo (even if she does share an unfortunate name with a certain circus performer). This talented young lady rose to fame back in 2004 with her first CD which sold quite well. She has graduated high school, recorded and released 2 more albums, and still finds time to apply for colleges. Her latest album, All I Want is Everything, is scheduled for release in late 2009.
Sandra Bullock (Virginia)
When Sandra Bullock was born in “The Mother State”, Virginia hit the mother-load of hotness. First breaking onto the Hollywood scene in films like ‘Speed’ and ‘While You Were Sleeping’, Bullock has continued to make a name for herself by starring in films such as ‘Crash’ and ‘Miss Congeniality’. You can currently see Sandra in her new film, ‘The Proposal’ where she gets naked with co-star Ryan Reynolds, a.k.a; Mr. Scarlett Johansson.
Anna Faris (Washington)
The Evergreen State” hit ever gold when Anna Farris moved there shortly after her birth. Growing up in Edmunds, Washington, Farris had her first big break when she starred in horror-film parody, Scary Movie. Farris has also showed off her serious acting skills by starring in films like Brokeback Mountain and Lost in Translation. Quite possibly one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood, she’s just in need of some more quality roles.
Katie Lee Joel (West Virginia)
Katie Lee Joel is a food critic, hailing from the Appalachian mountains of West Virgina. She attended college in Ohio and a year after she graduated, she married singer/songwriter Billy Joel. She is even best friends with her step-daughter, who is only four years younger and served as Maid of Honor at her wedding. Joel has had several jobs throughout the culinary world, most notably hosting the first season of Bravo’s Top Chef.
Heather Graham (Wisconsin)
The “Badger” state produced a rose among thorns when Heather Graham was born. This blond bombshell made a name for herself as Rollergirl in Boogie Nights, and has gone on to star in several films, including Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Bobby. She most recently starred as a Las Vegas Stripper in the epic comedy, The Hangover.
Baby Bears (Wyoming)
Wyoming, a.k.a. the “Equality” state is equally devoit of beautiful women. But baby bears are pretty cute. (Seriously we looked everywhere, Wyoming needs to produce a cute actress or singer stat.)
Charlotte Ayanna (Puerto Rico)
To make up for Wyoming, here is Charlotte Ayanna who hails from our unofficial 51st state, Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is often called “The Isle of Enchantment”, and if the ladies look half as good as Charlotte Ayanna, we all know why. Charlotte had a troubled childhood, and after being bounced around between foster homes, she finally found one family that worked. She got her big break in the Miss Teen USA pageant and has starred in films since then. Some of her most notable roles include playing Ethan Hawke’s wife in ‘Training Day’ and ‘Love the Hard Way’ with Adrien Brody.
