Recently I was, entirely against my will, watching the train wreck that is the latest season of ER. In the episode in question, Abby wakes up in bed naked with Luka after a night of drunken sex. A mite perturbed because of her many, many neuroses, Abby moves gingerly out of bed and starts dressing. Watching the scene, I noticed, as I sometimes do, that Maura Tierney’s attractiveness–to me, at least–varies insanely from moment to moment.
She wakes up–not hot.
She’s moving around the apartment in a sheet, showing exactly as much skin–very hot.
Smiling one moment–not hot.
Smiling a moment later–ridiculously hot.
I’ve thought the same thing of Mary Lynn Rajskub and Alyson Hannigan --though, the latter case, it’s more that she flips from “cute-but- not-terribly-sexy-maybe-if-she-did-something-about-that-chin” to “oh-my-god-please-bear-let-me-worship-you-hunt-dragons-for-you-and-slay-your-enemies-hotness.”
Anybody have similar experiences.
