Ginnifer goes naughtier

Ginnifer Goodwin is an attractive and talented young actress who plays Margene, the junior wife on HBO's Big Love. Apparently not content with her offbeat, yet wholesome, image from that show, she's decided to change her persona. Or at least for the purposes of this photo shoot for the June 2009 W Magazine, just out. Opening my mailbox to see this had my eyeballs bouncing all over the place. I was very surprised to see little Margene all tarted up!

Is it a female fantasy to sometimes be the bad girl, out with a couple of dangerous looking guys? In one of the pictures the guys are in each others' arms. Hmmm.

It's a fantasy for guys to be with sexy chicks like Ginnifer, but speaking only for myself, I usually don't include another guy in the dream, and if I did, I wouldn't be hugging him.

This sort of slutty stuff started appearing in the '80s. I noticed it on MTV and the hard rock videos my son was watching. There was a time when this sort of photo layout wouldn't be seen except in specialty publications sold in Times Square or under the counter in the rest of America. It was seen as, if not pornography, something dangerously exotic, something kinky. Nowadays anything goes.

Well, Ginnifer's not really a slut, and this is just a fashion photo shoot for a trendy fashion magazine so Ginni, I forgive you. I still want to see you on Big Love, sweety, but not in pantyhose with a big run.
