25 Girls You Were Crushing On in 1997

Joey Lauren Adams

Movie: Chasing Amy

In the Kevin Smith-helmed Chasing Amy, the ridiculously underrated Joey Lauren Adams played Alyssa Jones, a gorgeous lesbian who temporarily changes teams once she falls in love with Ben Affleck's Holden McNeil. The film, which we think is Smith's best, was both an unlikely box office smash and a critical darling. Since her raw and gripping performance was widely regarded as a breakthrough role, many assumed that Lauren Adams' was en route to major Hollywood stardom. We'd love to see a comeback.
