Camilla Belle



I was watching The Quiet (more on that film later) last night, and I thought to myself, "Man, it really sucks that Camilla Belle is underrated." So, I decided to write this in appreciation for her talent and beauty .

Born Camilla Belle Routh , of a Brazilian mother named Cristina Routh, a former fashion designer in Brazil and current manager to her, and construction company owner, Jack Routh, on October 2, 1986, Belle began her actual career at the age of nine doing print ads. She went on to do lots of direct to video and TV roles. Most of these films are made up of stuff I will probably never see (Trapped Beneath the Earth, Annie: A Royal Adventure!), as well as minor roles in stuff like Lost World: Jurassic Park. But, it wasn't until her appearances in The Ballad of Jack and Rose and The Chumscrubber that she began to get some recognition.

Her most well known role, though, came in the remake of late 70s horror film, When a Stranger Calls . I talked a little about this film in the blog on Katie Cassidy, so just read 'em there.

Anyways, back to The Quiet . This underrated little known about film came out in 2006. In it she plays Dot a deaf-mute girl that is taken in by a family. Their daughter Nina (the beautiful Elisha Cuthbert) hates her and picks on her, but discovers one day, that Dot has her own secret. And, decides to tell her her's , that her dad is having an incestuous relationship with her. Dark and disturbing, the movie is highly recommended by me. The cast pulls out some great acting, and the film is certainly not a feel good movie. Belle is really good, and this is excellent proof of why this beauty needs to be more movies.

Sadly, her next role was in sci-fi flick 10,000 BC , a movie I am in rush to see, anytime soon.

Anywho, with her beautiful jet black hair, gorgeous eyes, dark eyebrows, nice rack, and beautiful face (having some Brazilian blood is definitely a good thing), Belle is easily, to me, one of the most gorgeous babes out there, hope we will be seeing more of her (in all aspects of that phrase!).
