    Kind of cool. I like her way of acting and all that kind of stuff, though I don't really think taht there is much to say about other of movies. I really enjoy Basic Instincts, but making a second part, was kind of stupid. Also, some movies are not her best like Catwoman, which was nothing special. Still, I think she is a good actress.
