In Hollywood, apparently all you need to establish "nerdy" is a pair of glasses, limp hair and some frumpy clothing. Unfortunately, while unusual-looking leading men are plentiful in Hollywood, unusual-looking leading women must be in short supply, because the movies have a tendency to "nerd up" gorgeous young starlets and try to convince us that they are friendless outcasts. In Jennifer's Body, Amanda Seyfried dons the glasses to play the nerdy, less-popular friend of Megan Fox, despite being every bit as pretty -- as if her friend wouldn't give her any fashion tips! Ellen Page will similarly nerd up for Whip It next month, and the pair have gotten us thinking about the other adorable women of Hollywood who have worn the glasses, the lab coats and the sweats of the nerd. Keep in mind that this list doesn't include the generally frumped-up (Cameron Diaz in Being John Malkovich), the nerdy-in-flashback (Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed) and the supermodel scientists that aren't even trying (any female mathematician or computer tech in a James Bond movie).
Whew! Finally, the summer is almost over, which means we don't have to look at any more pictures of Transformers 2 star Megan Fox and can move on to... What? She has another movie coming out? In which she stars as an evil high school student who likes having sex wiht boys but is actually a demon? Great. Now we can look forward to another month of photographs of her wearing red-carpet fashions and biting her tongue to make herself look either more or less attractive (we're not exactly sure which she's going for with that). Plus, more Diablo Cody talk-show appearances, to boot. Vloggers Omar and Pablo G. dissect the Jennifer's Body redband trailer -- and the Fox phenomenon herself -- in the latest installment of "Trailers Without Pity." Watch it below, or click here!
