Page 2 staff

Check out our list below of 10 overlooked women, and then vote in the poll at right to move on to our list of 10 men who could use a little more love.

As a budding actress, Marvin Gaye's daughter clearly knows "what's goin' on."

While Nixon's three "Sex and the City" co-stars get all the ink, Page 2 knows that "Miranda" is right.

If you don't think Linda is underrated, go watch "Vision Quest". OK, you're back. We told you so.
If you only liked "Bend it Like Beckham" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" for the hot girl, then you can thank Keira.

Forget about all the other flavors of the month and their 15 minues of fame. Nia always delivers.
What? You haven't heard of the lead singer of the band "Antigone Rising"? Relax, you will.
 
 
Gina Gershon Cheryl Hines

If you think of the hottest scenes on film over the last 10 years, odds are Gina makes the cut -- more than once.
Anyone who can complement ulta-neurotic Larry David and not end up in therapy herself deserves much more credit then she's getting.
 
 
Diane Lane Lauren Graham

Diane had the "everyone's hot neighbor" thing down, then came "Unfaithful." Whoa ...
Let's put this as clearly as possible ... she's made a show on The WB a hit. You can't need more than that.
