Latest Movie Hotties Headlines

Face Off: Karen Gillan vs. Sophie Turner

12.07.2015by: Droz

Rachel Weisz scored the win over Marion Cotillard last week. I was split on the two of them at the time, but now I think I'm a little more in Rachel's corner. That's probably due to having watched a couple of her movies recently, which is where a lot of hotties' real beauty comes out. Things might have gone the other way, had I watched a couple of Marion's movies. So I'm probably still technically deadlocked on those two.

This week sees Karen Gillan co-starring as the hottie component in the leading man sausagefest otherwise known as THE BIG SHORT. Many of us know Karen as a former hottie companion Amy Pond from the longtime sci-fi extravaganza Doctor Who and the not-so-hot baddie Nebula in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. That's a rep not too different from the one Sophie Turner enjoys. She has her own immortal TV show in the form of Game of Thrones and her own Marvel comic movie opening next year - a little something called X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. They're also both gorgeous, redhead hotties from the UK. So they have a few things in common. But which of these red haired sci-fi & fantasy hotties is your favorite?


The word that comes to mind when I think about Karen's looks is "adorable." And she is that. The red hair is one important aspect of that. So are her pretty brown eyes and all those funny, awkward, silly little expressions she's fond of making both in real life and with her characters. If you could add up all the best things uniquely possessed by redheads, Karen would meet or exceed most of them.

Sophie has plenty of redhead cred as well, though not quite in the way same as Karen over there. While not above making silly faces in moments of revelry, Sophie's approach to beauty is more in line with what one might get from the typical fashion model. That's probably why she's become so popular in modelling circles. I'd say Sophie deserves the attention she gets there. She is quite lovely.


There's nothing about Karen's bod I find unappealing. She's got a pair of great legs and beautiful, unblemished, porcelain-like skin. She is kind of missing an ass though and isn't very well endowed up top either. No doubt there are some who don't mind that about Karen - maybe even prefer it. Yet for a guy like me, who enjoys a little roundness to his women, Sophie is much more to my liking.

Sophie and Karen both bring the beautiful leg action. If you've seen any of Sophie's social media or tight pants street candids, you'll know the girl is rocking some delightful curves as well. She hasn't had an opportunity to really show those curves off to anyone besides her legion of internet fans, but something tells me it wont be long before the whole world catches up with what we here already know about Sophie.


Neither of these two is the shy type, although Karen has been something of a wild girl in the past. I couldn't say for certain if that's still the case or not, but something tells me she's a handful, like in a good way. Just on looks alone I'm inclined to grant her an easy vote for hotness. She might not be as curvy as her competition here or other women I enjoy, but she's got some damn fine legs and hair and looks. 3 out of 4 ain't bad at all.

If you've followed Sophie through her time on GoT, it's only natural to persist in thinking of her as the child star she started out as. But, the truth of the matter is that she's not a kid anymore. If you've heard her talk and seen her doing her thing out in the world, you know that's true. Girl also isn't shy at all about making her sexuality plain. I'm sure that will help her down the line, but for now I'm still waiting on her to do something that will to rest any memories of her child star days once and for all.


I praise Karen for trying to make a go of her Selfie show on NBC. Lately it's become a foregone conclusion that any new endeavors on that network are doomed to failure. However bad the show, it did have the benefit of starring Karen, which at least gave it great eye candy. But never mind that hiccup. Karen is front and center with many lifetime A-listers in this new BIG SHORT movie. GOTG2 is in production as we speak. Yet my favorite thing Karen did this year or maybe ever, was her short film CONVENTIONAL, which she wrote, directed and stars in. If you haven't seen it, please do so. She's fantastic in it.

Up until this last season of GoT, Sophie was mostly the innocent eye candy being tossed back and forth by sadistic, power hungry sociopaths. They've given her a little more in the way of substance lately, but I'm still a little dubious as to what Sophie has to offer as an actress. Her portrayal of a teenage Jean Grey in the next X-MEN movie should give a better indication of her skills there. As things stand now, Karen is the clear choice.


Redhead hotties have an instant advantage that puts them ahead of most others for me. It's only when they're put in competition against one another that things get tricky. With these two redheads, it turns out I'm more partial to Karen, mostly because I've got a little more history with her. But I think it's safe to say that you couldn't go wrong either way here.

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