Whenever I finish a book, I submit information to help the artist render a cover that personifies the book. That includes descriptions of characters, mood, scenes and I also usually send some images to help ensure that the hero and heroine on the cover match (somewhat) my view of them. To their credit, Harlequin has given me some beautiful, luscious covers over the years. I try to do my part to make sure that that continues.
So, I was thinking the other day about what celebrities fit my idea of the traditional romance heroine. And...while I've never sent her image in as an example (I guess I just haven't written her book yet), I think that Sandra Bullock would definitely be high on that list. I haven't seen all of her movies, but here are a few that gave me a smile.
While You Were Sleeping
The Lake House
There are others, of course, that I liked (Miss Congeniality, Love Potion #9, Speed, The Blind Side, to name a few) and others I haven't yet seen. So...what do you think? Sandra Bullock fan or not? And if so, what are your favorites?
And if you had to name a different actress as the perfect traditional romance heroine, who would it be?
