Latest Movie Hotties Headlines

Face Off: Julianne Moore vs. Jessica Chastain

09.28.2015by: Droz

It was virtually all Rose McIver over Emily Kinney in our previous Face Off. I gotta agree on that one. Emily is so cute - perhaps too cute to be running around naked in shows. I would never stop her from doing so, but I'm definitely more about Rose where getting naked in shows goes.

This week we got a couple hotties who aren't strangers to getting naked either. Julianne Moore and Jessica Chastain have their movies FREEHELD and THE MARTIAN opening this week. Two very different movies, starring two not so different women. Both Julianne and Jessica are celebrated actresses and darlings of the Oscar bait movies. More important is their status as two of my all time favorite natural redhead hotties. For years they've been the stuff ginger dreams are made on. But can we decide which ravishing redhead is the dreamiest? Let's see.

Beauty

It appears I'm passing a torch here. Julianne and her gorgeous everything have been treats for these eyes of mine for years. Yet it seems the redhead competition has caught up to the once untouchable Julianne. It's not that Julianne can't still compete here. Nor is she done being a beauty. Rather, Jessica has really stepped up her game here in recent years. I'll always adore Julianne, but for modern day stunning redheads, I think Jessica is where it's at.

I didn't think much of Jessica at first. Sure she was pretty and her hair was amazing, but she just wasn't communicating to me back when I first started recognizing her by name. Then later she started to grow on me. Gradually, I began to recognize all the good things she had to offer here. Despite being in her late 30s now, I don't think Jessica has ever looked better to me. Longevity like this is just another thing to love about redheads like Jessica.

Body

We've seen plenty of Julianne's body over the years in more movies than I can recall. Funny enough though, her body has never been anything like an obsession of mine. Sure, she looks tasty when she's out of them threads. That's true even today. I don't know, I guess I've had other priorities where Julianne is concerned. Maybe she's just too good of an actress for me to objectify.

I tend to think of Jessica as the austere thespian chewing up the scenery with her skills. While she can do that with the best of them, she's also demonstrated a skill for getting them clothes off on camera. Just as with her acting, Jessica has a real talent for stripping down. She's no slouch in the real world either, where she regularly makes a show of her curvy, stacked frame. So generous is Jessica with her bod, I've begun to look forward to her red carpet appearances just as much as her movies.

Hotness

As I said, Julianne has been making with the hot moments for years. I recall first being awed by her hotness in SHORT CUTS way back in '93, where her notorious "bottomless" scene introduced me to the stimulating power of a matching carpet where redheads are concerned. Since then the hot moments have just kept coming. Even today, at 55, she's still making hotness magic happen. Just as amazing is the fact that I'm still watching and enjoying the hell out of her doing so.

On screen, off screen, Jessica always has a modicum of hotness. It's just one of those privileges redheads enjoy where I'm concerned. Beyond her minimum required redhead hotness is Jessica's own special brand. I appreciate her seeming ease with showing off all sexy and I'm drawn to the fire she has in her belly, which is yet another characteristic redhead feature. It's a double-edged sword I've been cut by more than once in my time. But what can I say? They do keep life interesting.

Career

I need not bother listing all the movies Julianne has done which have become modern day cinema and cultural icons. You know what they are just as well as I do. Over and over again, decade to decade, they all seem to turn to Julianne to make their movies the best they can be. And she's delivered time and time again there. It's amazing then that after all that time and work, Julianne won her first Oscar just this year. Fortunately, she's not even close to done sprinkling excellence all over the cinema.

Difficult choice here between two such talented actors. But, when I go through the back catalog of Jessica's work, I find she yields a little bit less in the way of culturally influential content. She's definitely made her mark though. I'm sure Jessica will have herself a golden bald guy soon enough. Gotta respect both these women for refusing to let that Hollywood ageism thing stand in their way where great roles are concerned.

Jessica

Is Jessica a worthy natural redhead queen? I think so. Julianne has earned her many years as an exalted ginger monarch, but her crown had to pass to a new generation some time. Jessica is a more than capable candidate. I foresee her reigning with wisdom and grace.

Just one man's opinion. What are your thoughts?

As much as I have adored Julianne since Boogie Nights and she is one seriously talented, classy, beautiful woman, Jessica just ahead by the tiniest of margins - when I see her, its like the earth stops moving...... I hope she ages as well as Julianne

Tie for me. Julianne has almost 20yrs on Jessica and at her older age, she still very beautiful. One can hope Jessica in 20 years ages similar.
I can't not make this a tie.

Jessica Chastain

She's gorgeous and given time I think her career will be more impressive than Julianne's decades long career. Can't really compare them at this point.
Julianne's beautiful and talented too, but Jessica wins.

Understandable & why I nearly almost went with a tie. Wow just found out Jessica was born in the same year as me, there is only a 16 year difference really between these 2.

Jessica Chastain but barely

Both are gorgeous redheads & very good actresses, if this were 10 years ago though I would have picked Julianne. This was almost a tie for me but Jessica has done much better work as of late.

Give it about 10 years and her career will be as impressive or better than Moore's. I think Moore is a fox and is quite talented too.

Jessica is absolutely gorgeous - one of the most beautiful redheads in Hollywood today. I also think she's a better actress than Moore which is something not a whole lot of women can claim.
