…or is it true that Anna Paquin would have made a better Penny Lane? I recently watched “Almost Famous” for maybe the third or fourth time and, while it’s true that Kate Hudson was at her very best in the role, that isn’t saying a whole hell of a lot. Looking at her body of work, it’s pretty sad that “The Skeleton Key” and “About Adam” are her next two highest rated movies.

Instead, imagine Anna Paquin, who played Polexia Aphrodisia in the film, in the role of Penny Lane. Paquin has since proved in “25th Hour,” “The Squid and the Whale” and “Buffalo Soldiers,” that she can play the role of young seductress quite well. She even added a level of sexiness to both X-Men movies, and she has more depth in her little finger than Hudson does in her entire body.

Is this just a blonde/brunette thing?
