I was sitting at the bar and the movie Kick Ass was playing. The girl in the movie is Chloe Grace Moretz and a guy at the bar said, “that girl is gorgeous, I’d totally F her.” I’ve never seen Kick Ass, or know who Chole Grace Moretz was, so I was judging off a quick glance, but I felt like the term gorgeous didn’t apply.

If I was going to use “gorgeous”, I’d go with these:
