She's pretty, but....Playtah likie the man pics... :)

Countersteer said...

Gosh, I thought your post last Friday was a Hottie, too.

Freckle Face Girl said...

I especially liked her in Desperado. Ok, really I was lusting after Antonio Banderas.

jaybird said...

I agree with you decision! However, I think you need to devote one day a week to her- something like "Selma Saturday!"

Moonbeam said...

I agree with Playtah, I likie the man pictures too. But, I guess you havta mix it up a bit once in awhile. Now as far as Salma being a Hottie, well I cant stand her personality, think she is a smartasss and feel she is a phoney. Therefore, I cannot see her as a hottie because she appears not to a nice person on the inside. I am sure the guys will see her as Hot no matter what...thats the way the world spins. Thanks for the Hump Day postings, I get a kick out of seeing if I can guess who it is.

Dennis said...

Yeah, one for the guys. Oh happy Selma day.

Rachel said...

Playtah ~ Me likie the man pics too but I was asked specifically by Dennis to post a woman.

Countersteer ~ Awwww *blush*

Freckle ~ I haven't seen very many movies that she is in but a guy I work with is in lust with her. I thought he would get a kick out of it so I went with her.

Jaybird ~ Thanks for posting. I knew you would like this one. I picked Salma just for you!

Moonbeam ~ I don't think she is a smartass. Sometimes when English is a second language things can come across as phoney but I don't see her that way. I think she is actually quite funny.

Dennis ~ Now can I go back to posting hot guys?

Tara said...

Wow, what a break for her, to play with Antonio Banderas! Not a bad start for her US debut!

minijonb said...

I had it right with "in Mexico to a Lebanese" ... she is such a hottie it's absurd. Nice pick.

Eric said...

She is very hot. I wonder if her gymnastic career was derailed when she developed her enormous breasts.

Rachel said...

Dennis ~ Watch me!

Tara ~ She made it relatively quickly. Must have something to do with her killer bod.

MiniJonB ~ The amount of conversations that we have had about Salma, especially when Jaybird sat near us, are mind boggling. I still think Catherine Zeta-Jones is hotter.

Eric ~ Actually it was derailed because she got kicked out of the private school she was attending for being naughty.

The Furtive Wangler said...

She's a bit of a manufactured beauty product herself, so I hear. She'd make my head turn and follow her if she walked past my desk though.

David in DC said...

Nomination for the next female hump-day hottie: Jessica Rabbit.

She's not bad, she's just drawn that way.

anonymous said...

To be followed by Betty Boop.

Moonbeam said...

Hmmmm....wondering if Johnny Depp will ever be a HumperDay Hottie?? Just putting a name in the hat for future reference :)

Egan said...

She's stunning, no doubt about it. She's on my top ten list for sure. Something about her, I think it's the eyes, that just sucks me in. She was awesome in Frida.

I thought I would stop by after seeing your comment on Wanderlust's blog. Hello!

Rachel said...

Furtive ~ Is there anyone in Hollywood that isn't manufactured?

David In DC ~ Good suggestion. I will add her to my list.

Moonbeam ~ Johnny Depp will be making an appearance sooner rather than later.

Egan ~ She has gorgeous eyes. I'm not gonna lie. I think that she is hot.
Thanks for visiting. Come back soon!
