Kirsten Vangsness, Penelope Garcia on Criminal Minds, has a wonderful CBS blog. In each of her entries she writes a "THREE REASONS I LOVE ____" and we all really enjoy it alot. I thought it would be fun for everyone to write their THREE REASONS I LOVE KIRSTEN VANGSNESS thoughts. So what are the three reasons you love Kirsten Vangsness?
Please remember to regularly check Kirsten's blog at:


Jean said...

Her smile lights up a room.
Her sense of fun would make her the best to go out with.
She can put more expression into one look than most of us can into speech.

sherlockette said...

She has a great sense of herself and does not change it to suit others unless she is in acting mode.

She is so very open and real.

She is hilarious on screen.

Ness said...

Her sense of style.

Her uncanny ability to brigthen my day.

The fact that she is Kirsten and she won't change that for anybody.

Anonymous said...

She is an amzing role model, proud to not be the typical skinny tv star.

She finds time in her busy schedule to write her amazingly funny blogs.

She drops food all over her just like the rest of us and ain't afraid to let everyone know!

Elizabeth said...

1. She is just gorgeous

2. She writes great blogs and has a lovely chatty style.

3. She is an anglophile - come and visit us!

allie said...

She is real and not a carbon copy actress which are a dime a dozen.

She is incredibly talented.

She cares about her fans.

Lisa said...

1. She does "Three Reasons I Love..." :) I look forward to that tremendously. The only cast member she hasn't gotten to yet is Mandy; hopefully he'll be next, unless she starts over from the beginning.

2. She seems a lot like Garcia in that she's offbeat and crazy cheerful.

3. She knows she's not a size 2 and is fine with that. Unlike some shallow actresses who think they need to be able to hide behind a flagpole to be pretty.

Lin said...

1. She is not afraid to wear bright colors -- her style is all her own, and wonderful!

2. She appreciates the people around her and shares it with all of us.

3. She brings a thousand small 'real' touches to Garcia -- like the quirky pens -- that make her a joy to have in my living room.

maura said...

She is content in her own skin

She is really funny

She loves her castmates

I think KV is truly one of a kind.

Jan & Quentin said...

I love her for:
- Her individual style that she seems to foster with enviable self-esteem.

- Damn, that girl can act!

- Quentin loves that she drops food all the time. Some of that has got to wind up his way, right? And candy, Kirsten, candy!Although noodles are ok, too.

mona said...

I think it is really hard to narrow it down to just three but if I have to:

She makes me laugh.

She plays one of the best characters on the show and I think Garcia is just an extension of her.

She seems happy with herself.

julie said...

She has a wonderful sense of comedic timing.

She is confident

She has a smile that is brigher than a light bulb

izzy said...

She is real and not a made up barbie doll actress.

She is honest and you believe that she means what she says in her interviews.

She seems very kind. Look how nice she was to Jill when she visited the set.

Oh my list, sorry:

Kirsten lights up the show with her smile and her warmth.

She is as loyal to us her fans as we are to her.

She loves the cast as much as we do and I imagine they love her as well. She seems like such a really nice person.

Three reasons I love Kirsten Vangsness:

1. She seems awesomely confident and comfortable in her own skin.

2. She has an awesome sense of humor and a gorgeous smile.

3. She is such a talented actor and fills the screen with her presence, and she ad-libs the most wonderful nicknames for Morgan.

Also: Does anyone know if Kirsten is of Scandinavian descent? Her name sounds decidedy Scandinavian..

Tatiana said...

1. Her clothes

2. Her jewelry

3. Her hair (esp. the lowlights)

brady said...

Her sense of:


** plus she is just plain fun!

Lori said...

1. She brings the human touch to the show, which would be lost without her.

2. She is beautiful.

3. She is genuine.


I just realized that I haven't given my three reasons yet so here goes:

1. She came in on her day off to meet me which took away from her leisure time and gave me a thank you card. I was the one who was thankful. She is incredibly caring and selfless.

2. She is exactly how she portrays herself in her real life. Nothing with this woman is a front or a put on. No gimmicks at all. She is just who you think she is.

3. She listens to other people and cares about what they have to say. She is not self absorbed.

4. She is very talented.

5. She is still grateful for everything that happened to get her to where she is in her career right now and she doesn't sugar coat what her life was like before she broke through like many actors do.

6. She is just nice. If I could only use one word to describe Kirsten then the word would be nice. She is a really nice person.

Lee said...

1. She seems real which I love.
2. Her smile is contagious
3. She thinks of more than herself and that is rare in actors nowdays.
