I love Juliet, I agree and I think most of the hate come from shipper. What sadden me that if you go to youtube there this girl that not only attack Juliet, but attack Elizabeth as well. I do think if they (jack and juliet) get together, they have beautiful and intelligent babies. That being said I think Elizabeth had great chemistry with Matthew, I think she even had a little crush on him reading on some of her interview.
I had no idea, but that sadly isn't anything new. There were lots of personal attacks against Elizabeth when she first started out on Lost. I suspect that's probably why she's trying to stay away from the internet phenomenon.
