View Full Version : Is Capriati A Sex Symbol?

Sep 2nd, 2002, 06:36 PM
Ive heard people say she is and lets face it shes had lots of men so is she sexy or not?

Sep 2nd, 2002, 06:39 PM
Shes a pretty face, but definitly not a "Sex simble". I just wanna see Claire's face when she reads this ;)

Sep 2nd, 2002, 06:39 PM
there should be a HELL NO option.

Sep 2nd, 2002, 06:44 PM
from www.eonline.com re: Matthew Perry

Since that superfriendly exchange, the man also known as Chandler has canoodled with a slew of sexy babes, including Lauren Graham, Heather Graham and Jennifer Capriati.

I think its a matter of opinion, obviously - Kournikova is a sex symbol and I know a few guys who are totally not impressed with her.

But I can see how people could see Jenn as beautiful, I think she is :)

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:08 PM
Sorry, this thread made me LOL :o I voted As if !

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:11 PM
I think she is

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:16 PM
Nah, i named my daughter Jennifer after Capriati, so it would be a bit horrible for me to say i called my daughter Jennifer because someone else was sexy :(

She's pretty but no more

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:16 PM
Not the sort of body shape i go for :wavey:

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:17 PM

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:22 PM
LOL lovin' the responses...

Are u people sayin' Jen needs to go to the gym or to the surgeon to be sexy?

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:23 PM
I think what people are saying is that she doesn't quite fit the 120 pound, YAWN stereotype that people consider sexy these days :p

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:25 PM
She's not heavy is she? Nothing wrong with a pound or two of love handles :)

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:29 PM

As an American its rare to see a women under 300 pounds!

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:29 PM
She just looks like a tom boy. IMO

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:30 PM
Of course. And I definitely would!!!:hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:36 PM
LOL!Second option

She isn't heavy at all.

Not everyone is supposed to weigh the same as Anna Kournikova :rolleyes:

Jesus crist, people here are soooo...

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:45 PM
The thing i like about Jelena is, shes not Hantuchova/Kournikova size, a bit of hip and a bit of thigh can only be good :)

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:47 PM
Jelena is just stunning!

Crazy Canuck
Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:50 PM
Jelena is certaintly nicely full figured :)

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:54 PM
Jelena is pretty - Great figure as has Hingis, but DANIELA is beautiful shes too skinny though.

Dont get me started on Miss Inglesias :mad:

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:54 PM
I think yes, lots of people find her attractive. And if Matthew Perry says she is, well. Who can argue with that? ;)

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:54 PM
Holy fuck, of course she is- you'd have to be blind or something not to fancy the pants (quite literally) off her. Even just thinking about her makes me all hot and bothered (as I found out during my Physics practical exam with almost disastrous consequences- Jen was playing that night and I started thinking about me and her together naked in bed. You can imagine. :rolleyes: ).

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:56 PM
:eek::o:eek: I knew you should have read this thread... :o

Sep 2nd, 2002, 07:56 PM
Jelena is one of the 4 most stunning and beautiful women in the world

Sep 2nd, 2002, 08:00 PM
JelenaDokicIsHot - You think Shakira is Hot???

That girl is soo fake :rolleyes: And totally unattrative!

Sep 2nd, 2002, 08:16 PM
Nimi, how did you guess? It's not like I, ahem, think she is the hottest, sexiest, most beautiful woman in the world or anything. :p

Sep 2nd, 2002, 08:25 PM
Shakira is gorgeous!

Sep 2nd, 2002, 08:44 PM
Capriati is not a sex symbol. A sex symbol is a person who has mass sex appeal across all culture line. I would say Jennifer Lopez is a sex symbol, Tom Cruise, Janet Jackson, George Clooney etc.

Capriati has a nice face though. As far as being a beautiful person, none of us knows except from what's stated in her interviews.

Sep 2nd, 2002, 08:59 PM
Ofcourse there are those who find her sexy and those who don't.

Yes, what we read in her interviews, and what we hear that she does for people through her charity work, etc.

We can't really argue wether or not she is sexy though, like CC says - some think so some don't ;) No one is wrong :p

Sep 2nd, 2002, 09:08 PM
Jen belongs in a horse category.

Now come on love-seles, that was a bit harsh.

Sep 2nd, 2002, 09:23 PM
yes she is :)
but people will always have dfifferent opinions so no need to argue about it

Sep 2nd, 2002, 09:27 PM
Okay then;)

J. Lopez is not a sex symbol. She is a #(*#. :)

And I'll have you know no one is allowed to conduct powder-puff celebrity interviews except for moi! If you don't back off, I'll be forced to unleash Hugh Downs on your precious George...

Thats Right! Hugh Downs Is Baba Wawa's Right Hnad Man!

BTW":Jennifer Is Very Sexy!

Sep 2nd, 2002, 09:52 PM
Of course she is.

Sep 2nd, 2002, 09:54 PM
Hell yes! Just one look from her tired me out. By the time she got me in bed, I was spent.

Sep 2nd, 2002, 09:57 PM
Well she's better looking that you Billie. Mind, thats not difficult. You look like a wasp chewing a bulldog. Inside-out. :rolleyes:

Sep 3rd, 2002, 06:39 AM
Jennifer is gorgeous!

But I don't know about "sex symbol." I think someone is only one those if he/she tries to be one, a la Kournikova.

Sep 3rd, 2002, 07:11 AM
ahhhh yeaaaaah... she's one of the girls that in the right light is, ya know good looking. She kinda has a two-face thing going on. I'm a breast man myself so those hersey kiss tits aren't my cup of tea.

Now Jelena Dokic- good christ there's one i love to look at. Also Martina Hingis. And shit Serena in the cat suit- YUM!

Hate to sound so piggish- but kinda have to be truthfull on this type of topic....

Sep 3rd, 2002, 07:14 AM
I don't think so:rolleyes:

Sep 3rd, 2002, 02:59 PM
I saw Jennifer face to face the other day: She is extremely hot and in great shape. Jennifer is feminine, beautiful, and has a great smile!

Sep 3rd, 2002, 03:07 PM
For me a sexy woman is a woman who is confident, authoritative and successful. A woman never takes as no/fault as an answer and who never is satisfied with being #2/#3 to anyone. So, yes, Jenn is a sex symbol [to me].

For those who wrote Jen should lose some weight to be considered a sex symbol, how about you gain some brain mass yourselves?

Sep 3rd, 2002, 03:15 PM
lol, nice one eta psi.

Sexiness is not just about looks. It's about how someone talks, walks, carries themselves, attitude, intelligence, friendliness etc etc

Sep 3rd, 2002, 03:27 PM
Tne key word here is 'symbol' not sex.

When people think of Anna, they think of sex, selling sex and athletic futility. 'Sex' and 'selling sex' are what being a sex symbol is all about.

When people think of Jenn, they think of winning, whining, athletic disaster and atheletic triumph, cursing at the drop of a hat, and a life story that too wierd for Hollywood to make up. Is she sexy? Sure. Is she a sex SYMBOL? No way.

Fortunately or unfortunately for Jenn, she was blessed/cursed with a life too interesting and too public for her to simply be a sex symbol. She's too much more than that.

Sep 3rd, 2002, 04:05 PM
OK, she´s attractive - but surely not a Sex Symbol

Sep 3rd, 2002, 05:40 PM
I find it fascinating how much the idea of the sex symbol in society has evolved in the last 25 years. The US cultural revolution in the 60's and 70's found the prototypical sex symbol (a la Marilyn Monroe) demeaning to women because her flagrant little girl, big breasted sexuality spoke to feminists as the patriarchal symbol of women: all flesh, no brains and no accomplishments. Today, the flesh farm we see in magazines and on television is suppose to be empowering to women. It is suppose to say "See I have the power not only to show off my body, but to make a fortune doing so." However, the modern interpretation of the sex symbol takes away any aura of mystery that is such an important part of the incredible complexity of female sexuality. Magazine photo spreads, television shows and ads and internet sites all show female sexuality as a prefabricated showing of flesh without any emotional content.

Any female athlete or celebrity has to make a choice about how she wants to market herself in today's flesh farm. While some women exude more sexual charisma than others, truth be told, any woman can be a sexual symbol if she is marketed the right way. In her big comeback, Capriati made a decision on how she wanted to be marketed: As a good athlete, not a sex symbol. Kournikova, years ago, made the decision to be marketed as a sex symbol who happens to be a good athlete. The result of this marketing demonstrates the disparity on how these two women are viewed. Capriati is the comeback queen with three GS titles to her credit. Kournikova is the MTV sex queen with good tennis results, but her protracted slump only hurts her tennis image more than it helps it. In the end, the public perception of these athletes surely affects them on the tennis court and that is far more important that winning any sex symbol poll.

Sep 3rd, 2002, 06:20 PM
Capriati is very sexy,but i wouldn't like her to be a sex symbol,which i don't think she is by the way.

Sep 3rd, 2002, 07:13 PM
Jennifer is not a sex simbol.

And I would love to know who, when, where stated that Jennifer had many men in her life??? :eek: :eek: :eek:
Please, name 3, since you posted it :)


Sep 3rd, 2002, 07:56 PM
i can think of 3 off the top of my head.... 4 if you include MP

Sep 3rd, 2002, 08:32 PM
Everyone knows Jen's been around the block a few times.

Sep 4th, 2002, 05:59 AM
apoet - Great post!

25 years from now, what are we going to remember about Jennifer? Her comeback and her three Slam titles. What are we going to remember about Anna? She was pretty and popular.

I am a totally different person! So naaaaah. I am the one and only Pam Howard Shriver-Lazenby, doubles legend and commentator extraordinare. If we are all the same person then why can you see all our usernames in the online section huh?

And I have often been told I have exquisite taste - George thinks so -and Jen is wonderful.
