    Now, My Fellow Americans, 1996. Stars Jack Lemmon, James Garner, Dan Aykroyd and Lauren Bacall. Directed by Peter Segal.



    Didnt get much approval from critics, but broke even at box office at about $22m. I like this; script is ok and the quality cast move it along well enough.

    I find many Chinese or Japanese women really pretty (small and petite with dark hair), and what also makes them attractive (for me) is that they're almost always very feminine and dress that way, too. You rarely see them slobbing about in leggings or behaving like men!

    They like to embrace their femininity. In that respect, Rachel Khoo is really cute: https://thehappyfoodie.co.uk/article...-food-memories

    And she can cook, too!

    in general i prefer a face with character, and presentable across board. beauty is only skin deep.

    I agree, but it's not beauty I'm talking about though [why I find most 'supermodels'/Miss World types distinctly unattractive], but rather 'girly cuteness'/femininity.

    I love women who not only look like women, but BEHAVE/dress like women, and also have an air of delicateness and 'vulnerability' [as in like to be looked after and protected], as well as sophistication.

    Chinese and Japanese women tend to be like that, but of course there are plenty of girls like that of all nationalities!

    Del's exactly like that, which is one of the things that attracted me to her in the first place, but she's also strong-willed and stroppy lol, which is also something else I like I like confident, intelligent, feisty women with 'attitude', who know what they want from life. That in itself is very attractive.

    Geoff, she sounds nice, so you get what I mean?

    Marco.

    Agreed she does look cute (and is not without brains as well). The image is from 2011, so 9 years on she probably has kept her looks.
