40 TV and Movie Characters Who Were The Quintessential IT Girls
Penny Lane (Almost Famous)
Penny Lane’s appeal comes almost entirely from her mysterious aura. She’s a young girl who wants desperately to be seen as an adult. She’s beautiful and popular in the eyes of the groupies she leads. Following a band around is an exciting and depressing life, and Penny encapsulates both of those feelings.
Penny is the unstable yet irresistible woman at the center of this flick. Part of what makes her so compelling is Kate Hudson‘s wonderful performance. There’s also a feeling that she’s pretending, somehow. It seems like she knows a lot about how the world works, but really, she’s still just a kid.
