Alexis Bledel Appreciation #26 ~ With Her Humble Nature, She Outruns Any Actress


This beautiful banner was created by PsycheDanes at Stars-Hollow.org

Welcome to the Alexis Bledel appreciation thread! Alexis Bledel is one of the amazing actresses on "Gilmore Girls." Not only is the character she plays down-to-earth and sweet, but Alexis is the same way herself. From her love for Target to her desire to visit Dollywood, Alexis constantly gives us reasons to like her more and more.

A clip of the ET Vanity Shoot, much thanks to SilentWhispers!

Alexis was in the music video for Less Than Jake. Check it out and tell us what you think! Click me!

Katie, thanks for the great start!

Maybe I'm having a blonde day, but can you explain the "outrunning" any actress bit?

Also, I think this is a great time to think of more reasons to love Rory. (Airie, no worries, you needn't be included on this love train. You shall continue your little dance on the hate bandwagon. )

So now, Katie, I think it's up to you to update all the reasons.

We love Rory...
Because she can't hate the pathetic. (ESH)
Because she's not Daddy's (Christopher's) little girl, not by a long shot.
Because she's protective of Luke.

Outrun kind of like..beat any actress. It is kind of confusing. I posted other ideas on the other thread on the 10th page so check those out because I can always find a way to fix it.

The list of reasons has been updated.

Hmm...seeing as she's quite pathetic, and she obviously doesn't hate herself...ahem.

Great start to the new thread.

Alexis must have had fun that day. I like her hair in the picture.

This says the US release of Bride and Prejudice has been moved to February. There are some other articles on that site about the movie.

Yes she does. You know, I'm so glad you ride that Rory hate bandwagon without sacrificing any of that opinion on Alexis. Good for you, and thank goodness!

jenna, what?? WHY? Oh well, all that means now is that B&P, Sin City, and SotTP will be released 2 months apart. She'll be busy busy busy on the promo circuit (I kind of hope).

Maybe I'm stating the obvious here, but Alexis is by the far the most attractive person in that Bacardi photo. She was probably thinking, ooh yay, all eyes off me and are on the muscle-y tan boys behind me. Hah hah. No.

And you know what else, now that you reminded me? Don't all the guys look much too old for her? That guy on the right, especially, seems much too old to be a Bacardi "boy."

The girl is just attractive. We can all concur on that fact.

Gorgeous new pics of Rory and Logan, Rory and Dean, Rory and Lorelai, and Rory alone at Luminary! Mom-daughter pairs of eyes, crazy!

Is it just me, or are the Rory and Lorelai pictures almost the same outfits (exact shirts on Rory) except different colors?

Nope, not posted yet, but good reason, Trinity. Where did you read that?

Some of you may have seen these Paul Smith pictures already, but here they are again.

Gosh, Alexis sure looks pretty in white. It's such a clean look, and it works well.
