It’s a happy birthday to The Ruins‘ Laura Ramsey, who turns 27 today. I’m not particularly recollecting her from The Real Cancun, and I skipped The Covenant since Renny Harlin failed to invite me to the premiere, but she honestly gives a praise-worthy, full-bodied performance in The Ruins. And no, that wasn’t a nudity pun. Though it works as one, sure. A Wisconsin native, Ramsey has that Midwestern wholesomeness going for her. This isn’t to say that ladies from the coasts can’t radiate natural beauty and charm — they just as frequently do — but rather just that there’s a segment of the population that typically hails from states like Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and the like that seems unburdened by fashion polarities and the quest for au courant status, and that’s refreshing. I hope Ramsey eschews any Botox treatments or club-excess lifestyle choices, and keeps that quality; regardless of how her career tracks, movies need more women like that.
