Minka Kelly's film schedule is getting busier and her performances are earning critical acclaim that is attracting the interests of entertainment observers and filmmakers for her acting, not her beautiful physical appearance.
Some entertainment observers who have been watching her recent performances believe that she could emerge as a potential big screen dramatic feature actress with a sterling performance in the movie "Papa" opposite Giovanni Ribisi.
Since 2013 with her starring role in the television show "Almost Human" and her performance in "The World Made Straight" she has been showing a more gritty side to her acting and while some observers think she may be downplaying her looks too much she has succeeded in showing critics and filmmakers that she is much more than a beautiful actress but one who has the acting range and toughness to play a dynamic dramatic role in a movie.
An interesting aspect of Minka Kelly's acting ascent over the past two years is that it is a byproduct of her seemingly making the 'courageous' decision to make viewers and filmmakers focus on her acting ability by literally taking the focus away from her amazing body in her recent roles.
Often actors will talk about wanting to be evaluated and looked at for their acting and not their looks but rarely are they willing to 'go all in' and move the focus away from an element, their physical appearance, which helped them break into Hollywood but the ex 'Friday Night Lights' actress seems to 'quietly' have made this move and it has paid off handsomely.
She is now being mentioned in conversations between entertainment observers and casting agents, directors and producers as a potential leading lady which represents a huge shift in her acting profile but one that is well deserved as illustrated by her recent acting performances.
Minka Kelly is in the process of revitalizing her career as a dramatic acting talent and the beneficiaries of her renewed focus are movie viewers and filmmakers, neither of whom is likely complaining.
