Minka Kelly is one of the more talented and attractive actresses in Hollywood but to some entertainment observers it seems as if she is avoiding roles which will highlight or emphasize the fact that she is very attractive and some wonder if it is 'holding back her career.
She is an actress who many entertainment observers could envision as a scintillating femme fatale or object of affection in a romantic drama but she has played neither role recently.
Thus a question that is being asked about Minka Kelly is whether this gorgeous actress in her pursuit of being recognized for her dramatic acting range is 'shooting herself in the foot' by not taking on roles or pursuing roles in which her physical appearance is a major component of the character.
Actresses blessed with acting talent and gorgeous looks sometimes 'get in their own way' by trying to avoid roles which will lead to a focus on both their acting and appearance because they want to be defined and known only for their acting and not their appearance.
She has not stated that she is avoiding such roles but as some fans and entertainment observers noted she is so talented and desired as an actress by filmmakers that it is very unlikely that she has not been offered any of these roles over the past two years.
One thing actresses such as Minka Kelly need to remember according to some entertainment observers is that once an individual becomes recognized as a leading lady star on the big screen who can bring fans to the theatres that 'power' gives one the ability to attract the best scripts that enable them to display their full acting range.
Actresses such as Sandra Bullock who left fans transfixed with her sassy, sexy scene-stealing appearance in "A Time to Kill" (1996) have 'played the game' to get the 'meaty' roles in later projects ideal for them to display their superior acting range while playing complex, intriguing characters.
Minka Kelly is an actress who has the acting talent and looks to be a Hollywood 'leading lady' star on the big screen but if she wants to be a leading lady star she might want to seriously consider not 'avoiding' roles that will in part emphasize that she is a beautiful actress because the fact that she is attractive does not take away from the fact that her acting range is sensational and extensive.
