Never. Hollywood keeps trying to play up the 'sexy' angle. I woman doesn't have to be all glamoured up to come off as strong and sexy. Looks are'nt nearly as important as practicality in pulling off a believable Heroine. Like i noted before, the female lead from The Killing
; Gwen from Torchwood
; the lead in NBC's Chase
. All these woman were extremely believable heroines that weren't concerned about the make-up and tight pants. Look at female MMA fighters like the ones who fight in Strikeforce; Gina Carano, Misha Tate. Guys will find woman hot regardless....
