Friday Night Parting Shot: Olga Kurylenko

Olga_kurylenko2_1Olga. Let’s face it, it ain’t a pretty name. It just doesn’t sound pretty, and it certainly doesn’t bring to mind anyone pretty. Olga is old. She’s burly. Somehow she was never young and certainly never cute. She waits in a bread line with big black shoes on and wears a long, dark, heavy, wool coat. And she could kick the shit out of an ox if she had to. But perhaps this preconceived notion is due to our limited exposure to the name Olga. Perhaps it’s because we’re children of the Cold War and students of the film Rocky IV. Perhaps if we lived west of Berlin, the name Olga would roll off our tongues like the names “Savannah” and “Jen.” And perhaps if we had been acquainted with Olga Kurylenko long before a few weeks ago, then we’d already know better. Because it took just one look at the seductively charming face and magnetic green eyes of this 27-year-old actress/model from the Ukraine to wipe away all our preconceptions of girls named Olga and rewrite the book for all those to come, or at least the ones who are supermodels.

You likely don’t know Olga by name but, like Wicked Chops Poker, she’s kind of a big deal over in Europe where she’s been on top of the fashion scene for some time now. She’s been the main Bebe model and has graced the covers of all the top ‘zines, and she’s appeared in several films including starring in the widely acclaimed film “L’ Annulaire.” She’s also done a fair bit of lingerie modeling, and we’re not talking the kind of lingerie modeling you’re used to down at that crappy ole strip mall, you perv. We’re talking high end stuff here, like the stuff you’ll see after the jump…

    Hi, my name is Olga,
    It is true, the name Olga does sound like an old ugly woman that will beat the crap out of anyone who crosses her path. Models like you make the name Olga sound pretty just like any other name. What is in a name though? We have no choice over the matter, its our parents decision on what to name us and to what they believe will soot us better.
    I am not ugly, I would prove it if I could, but I can’t. When people ask me for my name and I give it to them they always have this strange look on their face but to me its a normal name. Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, you know many girls named Olga, Yana, Lena, Sveta all the names that people look at you weird for having. Then I move to Staten Island, NY, and my name wasn’t as commmon anymore. Some of the people I meet even keep track of how many Olga’s they know. Its highly annoying.
    I started writing this only to tell you how beautiful you are but it turned into a huge name thing. Sorry, but you are beautiful and you give the name Olga a wonderful name.
    Loc:Staten Island, NY

    Olga like to film herself performing explicit sexual acts. And I’m pretty sure, but not positive, that she enjoys anal.

    Just watched her in the 2007 Movie Hitman. GIGGITY GIGGITY GOO! Is all I can say. The films pretty poor apart from the action sequences and, of coarse, Miss Kurylenko showing PLENTY of skin. The film gets a rating of 4/10 (For the action sequences) and 10/10 for the casting directors choice of lead female.
