Actors I like
Pam Grier has been referred to as the sex goddess of the seventies even though she does not fit the mold of a couple of sex goddess characteristics. For one, she is a black woman, which usually means she wouldn't be considered typically beautiful to the American public, so conversely she has been sexualized. Pam Grier is also often pictured with a sawed off shot gun which in a way is empowering, but is also kind of "using the master's tools" to become empowered.
