Most Fridays I feature a baker’s dozen images of a 40-something lady who “gets my motor running.”
This week’s over 40 Friday Fox is the luscious Heather Graham. I don’t know about anyone else, but Heather first caught my attention in the amazing film, Boogie Nights. Playing the super sexy 1970’s porn actress Rollergirl, Heather stood out among an all-star cast which included Julianne Moore, John C. Reilly, William H. Macy, Marky Mark, and Burt Reynolds. The film was a huge success and is on my “Must See” list for anyone who loves great storytelling. After that, while she kept busy, Heather didn’t exactly light up the big screen. There were a few bright spots, such as Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, but those were few and far between. It wasn’t until her appearance as the stripper Jade in The Hangover that Heather resurfaced on the A list. Sure, she was in a bunch of movies and TV shows in between, but nothing really resonated with audiences the way Boogie Nights and The Hangover did. Post-The Hangover, it looks like Heather has dropped back into a series of less than awesome movies. It’s sad, I find her to be a fun and quirky actress. She has a great sense of humor and really looks like she’s having a blast as whatever character she’s playing. Hopefully Heather can return to the A-List soon. They certainly didn’t have gorgeous women like Heather at my high school!
