Elle’s Honorees Fleshed Out

Elle’s Women In Hollywood honorees list needs a little fleshing out, we think. The press release prose is a little purple.

Kate Bosworth:
In a town that worships lanky young blonds, Kate Bosworth could have had it easy. Instead, she dodged the expected and chose to rely on her intensity and range, proving this bombshell is built to last.

Built to last, if you believe that all that limited calorie diet bull.

Jennifer Connelly
Jennifer Connelly managed to do the impossible: graduate from child actor to leading lady, without rehab or going commando. Meet the savviest woman in Hollywood.

Take that, Lindsay Lohan!

Diane Lane
In Hollywood there are the young, the younger, and the barely legal. Then there’s Diane Lane, an alluring forty-something whose stunning turn as an adulteress soccer mom reaffirms why reinvention is the best revenge.

Adulteress soccer mom? Wasn’t that a couple of movies ago? Or maybe not.

Amy Adams
Amy Adams kick-started her career by slaying one supporting role after another. But now Hollywood’s most promising breakout is finally ready to take the lead.

Slaying? Is this a Buffy reference? She’s got good buzz for Enchanted.

Julie Taymor
Julie Taymor has tackled theatre, opera, and now Across The Universe—the most inventive film of the year. It’s just the kind of breadth that might just make the wildly nimble filmmaker the director of our generation.

Inventive is another word for stinkbomb, and you’re not talkin’ ’bout my generation, fool on a hill.

Lauren Bacall
For more than six decades, Lauren Bacall has crafted the kind of characters women want to emulate and actresses only dream about playing.

Bacall’s great, but writers created those characters, and Howard Hawks created Bacall.
