Bo Derek vs Daryl Hannah

Who’s the better actress? The more iconic sex symbol/beauty? And for the love of god, why do I always get these women confused?

Daryl Hannah is the better actress, hands down. Not even a contest. Bo Derek is probably the bigger sex symbol thanks to 10.

Both beautiful looking. The ability to convincingly pull off the wide character range between Annelle in “Steel Magnolias” and Elle in “Kill Bill”, gives my nod to Darryl as the better actress.

Bo Derek easily. Sure, she's bad actress but I can't use the word actress to describe Daryl Hannah.

Probably because they're both Nobel prize winning astrophysicists.

Life is hard for you, isn't it?

Hannah was the weak link in Magnolias and was utterly unconvincing.

Daryl Hannah did pretty well for an autistic person.

You mean who was the better tranny, OP

I think Hannah gets a bad rap as an actress. I liked her in Blade Runner, Splash, Reckless, Legal Eagles, Steel Magnolias and especially Kill Bill.

Bo's appeal seems to me to live in the zeitgeist of her time, a had-to-be-there kind of beauty. I don't really get it, anyway. I do understand why guys went crazy over her body, but her face was definitely a kind of beauty that was specific to a certain era from what I see. I feel the same way about Farrah Fawcett. I was born in 1978 and grew up after their popularity was waning and I...just don't see it. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, of course, and taste can't be tallied. But Derek and Fawcett make as little sense to me as icons of beauty or sex appeal as cute-but-not-supermodelesque Gigi Hadid does.

Kill Bill is the only film I've ever liked Daryl Hannah in. Blade Runner was of course and remains great but anybody could have played her role. Sean Young (though they shared no scenes together) acted Hannah off the screen.

Bo Derek could never.

But to be honest, I would’ve said the same about Daryl Hannah before Kill Bill.

Has Bo Derek ever delivered an even passable/competent performance? She’s one of the worst actresses of all time. Daryl is bad but she’s not THAT bad, and she has more iconic credits to her name than Slow Bo (who’s notoriously dim).

Daryl Hannah is one of those actresses only considered “a beauty” because she was blonde (and tall). She was the furthest thing from it.

Neither could act, but at least Bo Derek was great looking (and still is).

Bo Derek was well cast as a villain alongside Rob Lowe in Tommy Boy, which is very funny.

Daryl Hannah can be a great actress - with the right role.

by Anonymousreply 15March 19, 2023 3:14 PM

Hannah is genuinely 'something else.' I don't feel right about making fun of her. It's like making fun of a child.

Daryl Hannah was never pretty and has no figure imo. Can be acceptable in roles. Bo Derek is beautiful with a great body but complete void on screen. Tie?

R16 Jesus. She seems “touched.” How did she survive in Hollywood?

by Anonymousreply 18March 19, 2023 6:25 PM

Daryl looks masculine to me, Bo was gorgeous

by Anonymousreply 19March 19, 2023 6:41 PM

R18 she has total horse face. Was 100 percent never pretty.
