Like all things written on paper, comic books are declining in sales. They are read by thousands and seen by millions.
I read that these pictures of Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Death Proof, The Thing remake) are decidedly of a woman that Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers would never hang out with…
Maybe that’s true, but the girl in the Complex Magazine interview is another exception. The same Winstead the nerds adore, thus the “geek chic” thing and role in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Here’s what she had to say:
On being a sex symbol: “It’s an issue of what we’ve come to think of as ‘sexy’ in our culture, from the things that we’ve seen on billboards and stuff like that. There’s this image of a hot woman with squinty eyes and pouty lips that has been trademarked as ‘the sexy look,’ and that’s not my look. I like to think I’m sexy in my own way.”
