WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CHICK FLICK? Oh, the romance, the heartbreak, the female bonding, the Kleenex...with Pride & Prejudice
and In Her Shoes
, it's a vintage season for chick-flick fans. We asked celebs to name their faves.
CHARLIZE THERON Norma Rae
Just a great performance, great story. It makes you go, "You can change things."
COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE When Harry Met Sally...
It was just really sweet and smart.
BROOKE BURNS Love Actually
It was one of those total girl moments when I had a breakup and ate a pint of ice cream and made myself cry.
ROSE McGOWAN Working Girl
Melanie Griffith gave me inspiration to make something of my life. I was like, "She can do it."
LAURA LINNEY The Women
It's a classic. It's like the first chick flick.
MICHELLE MONAGHAN Steel Magnolias
I love to laugh, I love to cry. That scene at the funeral!
MENA SUVARI Thelma & Louise
It's empowering. Women have been stepped on enough. And you think about the connection with your girlfriends.
TERI HATCHER Wedding Crashers
It snuck up on you, that it wasn't a romantic comedy until the last five minutes. And then I was like, "No one will ever love me like that!"
