Pop Culture: Alexis Bledel

I've decided to add another feature, entitled "Pop Culture". It may include pictures, quotes, blog-worthy gossip about celebrities ~ basically, whatever I feel like writing about ;)

Today's feature: Alexis Bledel


 
This 28 year old has so much potential. As a painfully shy 8 year old, her parents encouraged her to try community theater. Her courage grew, and she spent the majority of her high school years working as a model.


Since then, Alexis has blossomed as a model, eventually became and actress, and even tried her hand at producing.


She has the prettiest eyes ever!


Doesn't she make the cutest "Rosie the Riveter"?!


I love that Alexis hasn't tried to conform herself to Hollywood's typical idea of an early twenty woman. She remains classy, sophisticated, and beautiful ~ three qualities we should all aspire to have.


Although she is known for somewhat fluffy roles {i.e. her goody-two-shoes character, Rory, in "Gilmore Girls"}, I think she has the ability to become a well-respected actress.


Fun Fact: Her first language is Spanish; she learned English just by attending school with other English-speaking children in Houston, TX.

She really is lovely. I still giggle when I think of "sisterhood of the traveling pants" I made my 4 older boys watch it last year. Funny. xo Erica

I love Alexis Bledel and I wish her good things. PS-I also love the Gilmore Girls and still watch reruns today. It was nice to see a girl who loved reading, learning and had a strong sense of self. Just saying!
