She has geek cred, acting chops, a wonderful voice, is gorgeous, and, dare I say it, has the most wonderful pair of eyes on the planet. What's not to love?

Okay, so the fact that I've got a total crush on her has nothing to do with the rating... right! ; ) She is a great actor and singer though!

All The Real Girls.

BLAND. Great singing voice but not the greatest actress and even less-satisfying career choices. YAWN. So overrated.

Not only can she act, she can sing, too, and is drop dead gorgeous at that.
