  • Dangerously sexy

    Some people don't know who she is, well just let me tell you this; she is an actress that it's known for being dangerously sexy (the same type of woman as Melinda Clarke, best known as Julie Cooper on The O.C. or Lady Heather on CSI).

    Her unique sexiness has earned her roles like the Bond girl Xenia Onatopp, X-men Jean Grey, Ava Moore in Nip/Tuck among others.

    But besides being sexy she actually had proven that she can act. And what is awesome about her is that she doesn't do it for the fame and money. Her true passion is to make movies, and she loves it so much that she actually works for a low amount of money or even for free, since she prefers to start an independent film to a blockbuster.

    I'm just grateful that this amazing woman had the opportunity to portray my favorite superhero on the big screen, cuz she did an amazing job. She brought out those dark spots of Jean Grey that we are just too afraid to know. Besides all that she has the 3rd cutest dog on earth =0P.

    She is kind of cool. Her acting is something original, and she plays a lot of good roles. Sometimes she seems like this girl that makes good movies, but sometimes when she plays the villlain makes one excellent role like in "I Spy" or "X-Men" she is awesome...
  • She is so sexy...

    Famke Jenssen is a very beautiful person, and I think that she is very talent also, I think that she also one of the best actress that I have ever see in my life, I really like the role that she did in Nip\Tuck and I think that it was one of the best actress that appear in there, and I also think that she is great the way that she interpreted her, and I also think that she is really good for the role of Jean Grey in X-Men, because she looks so sexy in there, and I can't stop thinking about her all the time, well the thing is that she looks so beautiful....
  • She is good!!!!!!!!!!

    I like her in hide and seek I had never seen a movie with her and then I saw Hide and Seek and she was fantastic in the role. After I saw this movie I went search in internet for know who that woman was and then I just started to like her.
