Pajiba 10 For Your Consideration: Jaimie Alexander
Until very recently, Jaimie Alexander was just Sif, my favorite female Marvel hero of the current glut of films. She was gorgeous, of course, and she was a woman I could believe would kick someone’s ass for attempting to destroy her home. My full-blown lady-crush did not erupt until I listened to her on the Nerdist podcast this week at work.
I love her.
She can fight alongside the God of Thunder.
She likes knives. In fact, a knife fell from her overturned purse when she auditioned for Sif.
She grew up in Texas and has 4 brothers. Jaimie was on the wrestling team in high school and rides a motorcycle.
Her prom date ditched her for another girl so Jaimie left the prom and returned home to play Xbox.
These are all interesting things. However, Jaimie is also very funny and has a great sense of humor. She also speaks at schools about positive body images. She works with human trafficking survivors and takes them to the gym. Jaimie believes that this helps the women to take the control of their bodies back while also becoming healthier and more focused.
Jaimie also dresses up as Sif and visits sick kids in the hospital.
Basically, she’s gorgeous, smart, funny, conscientious, giving, and more than worthy of your Pajiba 10 vote.
