No, I mean she's actually evil. Not just high school evil.

Well, Amanda Seyfried would be the one to know, wouldn't she? After all, as a full fledged member of The Plastics (the one who was convinced that her breasts could predict the weather) she certainly brought the uber-evil to high school. But apparently this time around, Amanda is playing the good girl. Who just so happens to share a girl-on-girl kiss with her actually-evil-not-just-high-school-evil-BFF-Jennifer to save her small town...or something like that.

I don't really get the point of Jennifer's Body aside from the fact that it's the latest creation from Diablo Cody, Academy Award winner for her Juno screenplay. I guess that is supposed to be reason enough for everyone to be excited about it. I think it's really just... An amusing concept that once again takes a look at the perils of high school and twists them into a horror movie. With really hot girls. That kiss.

They also have a promotional poster that is definitely bordering on copyright infringement due to its serious resemblance to the True Blood poster.

I have to admit, though, there are some pretty funny lines in the trailers I've seen.

Needy: "You're killing people??"
Jennifer: "No. I'm killing boys."

Come on. That is freakin' great. But I'm concerned that they may have used up all the good moments for those clips, and there might not be anything else to do during the rest of the movie except watch Megan Fox act.

Now... I'm not going to judge her. I actually kinda like Megan Fox. I can't say a word about her acting skills because Transformers isn't exactly a testament to anyone's acting skills, but I can say with certainty that the girls knows how to look good. I know a lot of people think she's crazy or vapid or just stupid, but I kind of like the fact that she has no filter in interviews. I think she speaks her mind and tells it like it is (however ridiculous it may sound) and if she's not afraid to look ridiculous and crazy then all the more power to her. Do I agree with most of the stuff she says? Definitely not. The girl is kinda nutso. Do I think she's one of the most beautiful girls out there? Yes, I really do.

Just look at her from the premiere of Jennifer's Body at the Toronto Film Festival.

I think she looks stunning in that gorgeous Valentino dress and ankle-strap Louboutins (hellooooo legs that go on for days - unfair!). The glamorous old-Hollywood hair, glowing skin, and smokey/shimmery eyes look amazing. Actually, I think she consistently looks lovely and I'm definitely harboring a little bit of a girl-crush on her.

I'm also seriously jealous of that gorgeous hair. In case the pictures above don't quite do it for you, here are few of my other favorite looks:

Simply en fuego, no? Ugh. We should all be so lucky.
