Cutting the Famesque Down to Size

Monday, August 10, 2009

The famesque, along with their should-be fame equivalents:

Sienna Miller . . . should be no more famous than Ludivine Sagnier (blond hottie with acting chops, featured in indie Eurodrama that will never come to your multiplex).

Jennifer Garner . . . should be no more famous than Jorja Fox (girl-n ext-door type with handful of decent movie roles and roots in TV drama -- except that "CSI" has a lot more viewers than "Alias" ever did).

Ashton Kutcher . . . should be no more famous than Topher Grace (former sitcom teen idol moving to the big screen).

Matt Leinart . . . should be no more famous than Sage Rosenfels (second-string quarterbacks -- one dates starlets, the other doesn't).

J essica Simpson . . . should be no more famous than Mya

(pretty pop starlet with a handful of mid-chart hits you don't remember and a movie career that didn't work).
