This is admittedly a fluff post. Fluff because I am once again indulging in my love of all things The Good Wife. My only defense? It’s Good Wife Tuesday!!!
Now that that’s out of the way, I think Julianna Margulies is absolutely a fair pick because my admiration of The Margs stretches back to her stint as Nurse Carol Hathaway on ER, through that lesbo-licious storyline in the movie What’s Cooking? (see below), all the way to the current day. She’s always an actress who manages to imbue quieter characters with profound emotional depth (or as profound as it gets on television). Her facial expressions are so honed and subtle. And, just to be superficial for a moment, I’m minorly obsessed with her hair. Not so much the crazy curls a la ER, but she has the most amazing long ladylocks in What’s Cooking?, and her blown out ‘do on The Good Wife is just so damn luscious. I can’t lie: Sometimes, when she appears on screen all buttoned up and sleek, I want to reach into the frame and run my fingers through it. Whoa. Scary. And I’m rambling. But you guys. Widow’s peak. That’s all I’m saying.
If my blurb doesn’t win you over, how ’bout some of this? Hot momma.
