Michelle Monaghan is obviously gorgeous. But, that's not why we admire her so much. Her recent role as an army medic in Fort Bliss is sparking Oscar rumors, and we're getting ready to bust out the tissues over her gut-wrenching performance in Nicholas Sparks' latest tearjerker, The Best Of Me. And, don't even get us started on how amazing she was on True Detective.
Despite her crazy schedule, she took the time to chat with us about everything from subverting traditional onscreen gender roles to her personal feelings on The Notebook. So, get to know this inspiring woman. We have a feeling she's going to be around for a very long time.
