Hot or Not: Gwendoline Christie

11.17.2015by: Cherry Liquor

Minimal feedback for Cote de Pablo last week was mainly positive, such as the box office returns and critic praise for her movie, THE 33. This week I thought we'd go for one a little bit harder. Sure, we're all expecting THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2 to do swimmingly but how will one of its newest stars (and also a cast member for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS) fare in the eyes of you Schmoes?

Gwendoline Christie

Gwendoline Christie made a big impact on me when I caught her as Brienne on "Game of Thrones," one of the few acting roles that the tall Brit has had since graduating from the Drama Centre Theatre in London in 2005. Prior to taking up acting, Christie had been a gymnast but had to quit due to injury. The loss to the gymnast world was the gain of GoT, where 6'3" Gwen kicked ass and slaughtered some of the opinions of femininity and preconceived notions of feminine strength.

Christie isn't just a badass on screen. If you go searching out her name with Polly Borland, an Australian photographer known for her eccentric style, you'll see that she's not shy about showing off her statuesque frame. The sets of images Borland shot feature Christie fully nude (even moreso than her time on GoT), posed next to women of "normal" height and, just in case you're frightened of clown wigs, cheekily posed with fake fluffy curls. Some might find the images strange, I found them to be intriguing and certainly liberating on her part.

Stereotyping suggests that we're not supposed to find strong women sexy. The internet is rife with comments about Serena Williams being a man because of her muscles and most of what I've seen said about Gwendoline isn't any kinder. However, I like her. She photographs well, she's unique and no one can say that she's not striking in her individuality. I might not classify her as "hot" but I certainly think she's sexy in a way that can't compare to others.
