Palpable innocence of Anna Faris

Palpable innocence, an effect created in part by her pearly skin
and flaxen hair and most especially by her tremulous blue eyes,
which she cranks open wide when the moment calls for it.

She is not given to making jokes or regaling people with merry,
self-absorbed tales. Rather, her charisma is carried primarily
in her face: her natural expression seems to be one of
incredulousness, which as a response to the world at large
— however mundane or absurd it may be in a given moment
— can seem pretty funny.
