IYSTW,THILH: Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

This young lady first came to my attention as the cheerleader who gets left behind, missing out on all the Kurt Russell ass-stomping in Tarantino’s portion of Grindhouse, Death Proof.

She next appeared as John McClane’s daughter in Live Free or Die Hard and as Ramona in Scott Pilgrim vs The World. She was delightful in the former and the only tolerable thing about the latter.

Before all that and unbeknownst to me at the time, she had appeared in Final Destination 3. Her presence in what has become my current favorite horror franchise cinches her street cred for me.

She has since appeared as the lead in the unjustly maligned prequel The Thing and is set to appear as the titular character’s dearly beloved in Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

Also, she and I have the same birthday.

She hasn’t been given much of a chance to stretch her acting chops but I’m holding out hope for that breakout role that lets her do just that. Until then, here’s a purty picture.

If you see this woman, tell her I love her!
