Beautiful Stranger: Shannyn Sossamon

The first five minutes of The Rules of Attraction, a blissfully unrepentant look at collegiate hedonism from Pulp Fiction screenwriter Roger Avary, are a barrage of twisted energy: James Van Der Beek is dealing drugs and seducing nubile freshmen; Jessica Biel is downing Jack Daniel's and taking on an entire football team; and a gorgeous loser played by Shannyn Sossamon is getting raped and vomited on by a townie while an accomplice videotapes it all. It's a scene that's cruel and unnerving--and one that Sossamon wanted to make.
