However you think of her – Tami Taylor, Rayna Jaymes, or Connie Britton – you love her and you envy her hair. If you don’t love her and envy her hair, it’s only because you haven’t seen Friday Night Lights, Nashville, or American Horror Story. Once you do, there is no going back.
It isn’t only that she’s beautiful, which she very much is. It isn’t only that she’s an actress in her 40’s whose face isn’t frozen into a botox mask, though hot damn how refreshing is that? It isn’t only that she plays flawed, complex women, but she downright Insists on maintaining their integrity along the way. (Considering how disappointed I am in Melissa McCarthy at the moment, it’s extra great that CB bolsters my faith in women). It also isn’t only her Amazing Hair and uncanny ability to make basic gold aviators look like the sexiest accessory on the planet. To wit:
Personally I think it’s all of the above, and then the kicker that drives it all home can be summed up in one word: Effortless. She makes it all look So. Effortless.
I don’t care if you don’t like football or country music and horror makes you squeamish. If you haven’t seen the quiet ferocity that is Connie Britton, you are missing out.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose. Happy Friday, y’all.
