When Leslie Mann was photographed at the 2015 Critics Choice Awards looking fabulous in a Rema Acra sequined silver dress with its sheer striped panels which she paired with her two-toned heels and metallic blue clutch she inspired conversations between fans and some entertainment observers about her as a love interest in a movie.
She is known as a comedic actress and most of her roles, even those in which there is a mix of drama such as "This Is 40" include a significant dose of comedy but her gorgeous appearance at the Critics Choice gala alongside husband Judd Apatow shows that she has the potential to be the object of affection in a movie.
There are some fans and entertainment observers who feel that it would be an intriguing change if she were to play a love interest or a complex, villain role because she is known as an actress who is usually involved in comedies. However, one thing her glamorous appearance at the Critics Choice Awards did for fans is it let them know that she is an actress who is not just attractive but possesses gorgeous, jaw-dropping looks and style.
When some entertainment observers consider the combination of her gorgeous looks with her talented acting which has resulted in sterling reviews for past films such as "This Is 40" they have reached the conclusion that she would be spectacular in a dramatic role which required the use of her extensive dramatic range and beautiful appearance.
In "This Is 40" Elle Magazine described her performance as being so great that "she doesn't just walk off with scenes - she steals the show" and at the Critics Choice Awards she was without question one of the 'surprise' scene stealers of the night with her scintillating appearance.
There is no indication that she will be pursuing a dramatic role in which she plays a love interest or femme fatale character but Leslie Mann is an actress who possesses the talent and looks that could allow her to be great in such a role and as such is likely on the radar screen of directors other than her husband for such a role in 2015.
Leslie Mann is an actress who if she chooses could potentially 'shock Hollywood' with a role in a serious drama in a manner similar to her wining appearance at the 2015 Critics Choice Awards.
