Poll: Who Is Prettier… Mary-Louise Parker or Rachel Weisz?

Mary-Louise Parker, Rachel Weisz

Editors Jennifer and Ashley are having a fight. Jennifer says that Mary-Louise Parker is beautiful – not just on the inside because of her devastatingly emotional performance in Angels in America and her deft comic turns on the hit Showtime series Weeds – but also because she is just. plain. beautiful. Look at those large eyes! Those delicate cheekbones! That ivory skin against her dark hair! She basically looks like Snow White, right? If Mary-Louise Parker was in Snow White’s fairy tale world, and the Evil Queen asked who the fairest of them all was, the mirror would say Mary-Louise Parker.

Ashley somehow thinks that Rachel Weisz is prettier. Why do you think that is? Do you think it’s because Ashley is blind? Should Ashley go get an eye exam? Or is Ashley just being wrong willfully for reasons no one can ever understand?

[Ashley Ed. Note: When Rachel Weisz steps into frame in that scene in The Mummy, dressed like Jasmin from Aladdin, you could hear the puberty going off in the theater--look how beautiful she is. She is so beautiful. Also, Jennifer is a dumb asshole.]

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      Probably the reason Rachel Weisz is always in Academy Award nominated things is because of the fact that she’s so ugly, and she had to be a really good actress to overcome that.

      Truth be told I don’t think either of them are beautiful, per se, but neither am I. C’est la vie. I voted for MLP because her facial features just seem…more…proportionate?

        Wow!! Really @SometimesElla? Who do you think is beautiful? I am very curious! That’s some pretty high standards.

    • Jennifer Wright

      I think the reason Rachel Weisz is winning is because you chose a picture where she is wearing a more flattering lipstick shade.

    • Kelly Hueday

      Rachel is winning because she is in fact more beautiful.

      And Jennifer, you’re a moron.

      At the risk of coming across as a stick-in-the mud and holier-than-thou with no sense of humor, I really hate these kinds of “who’s prettier/hotter” type polls. They’re both attractive and great actresses, does it really matter who is prettier? Realistically, in Hollywood looks are important, but they’re both pretty *enough*, so why does it matter who’s prettier? I think these sort of polls just tend to bring out the competitiveness about looks that tend to make women act in petty ways towards each other. I realize the authors didn’t intend the poll in that way and just did it for fun, but that’s how I feel about it. :-)

        I agree!

    • Eileen

      Loathe as I am to disagree with Jennifer, Rachel Weisz is indeed prettier. I mean, did you see Enemy at the Gates? Girl makes hiding out with Soviet snipers during World War II hot.

      MLP looks like a deer in head lights. Like she was abducted by aliens and was never quite right after. Her eyes seem vacant. Rachel Weisz on the other hand is classic. =)

      MLP so thoroughly annoys me on Weeds, and her face is so, SO frozen there’s no way I can vote objectively.

      I’m sure Rachel Weisz has had some work done, but MLP just looks like wax figure.

    • Alexis

      Personally, I prefer Rachel because she has a more unique face. MLP just seems like cookie-cutter beautiful to me. Rachel has a larger nose, bold eyebrows, and soulful eyes, making her a much more interesting face to look at in contrast to MLP’s thin eyebrows and heavily made-up eyes. Also, Rachel is beautiful even without makeup, as evident in “The Constant Gardener”.

    • Laura

      Mary-Louise is prettier when choosing between those two pictures. They are both beautiful, but Rachel is a bit too glamourous there to be called pretty.

    • Renae

      They’re both pretty, but I favor Rachel. I think you could have found a better picture of her though.
