Where would we be without Hollywood? It is hard to tell. Without a doubt, cinema has influenced our lives in more ways than one. It is always nice to escape from our own lives by heading to the theatre or watching a movie at home. There is no need to deny that it is gratifying to look at all the beautiful people on the screen! Over the years, a lot of lovely ladies have graced the screen. If you ask us, however, there is more to it than dazzling good looks. It takes a certain unnamable quality to bring femme Fatales to life. Not everyone can play these sexy movie characters, but these ladies made it work!
Madison In Splash
It is impossible to take your eyes off Daryl Hannah in this classic movie from the ‘80s. As soon as you are done watching it, you will probably believe in mermaids. Have you ever heard the saying that there is plenty of fish in the sea? That might be true, but we have to say that Madison is our favorite of them all.
Princess Leia In the Star Wars Saga
The Star Wars saga likes to think that it is family-friendly. However, we have some doubts about that. After all, there are certain scenes that would not fall under that category. After all, we are sure that your eyes also grew wider when you first saw Carrie Fisher in that prisoner outfit!
Naomi Lapaglia In The Wolf Of Wall Street
Did you know that The Wolf of Wall Street was inspired by a true story? This makes it even more interesting in our books. Despite this, we bet that a lot of people could not have cared less. For them, the only thing that mattered was that Margot Robbie was smoking hot as Naomi Lapaglia.
Arwen In The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy
When someone brings up elves, most people would think of tiny hard-working Christmas tinkerers. Let us just say that Liv Tyler completely changed the way that we looked at them. As Arwen, she was nothing short of ethereal! It was always nice to see her after seeing all the trials faced by the fellowship.
Holly Golightly In Breakfast At Tiffany’s
Did Audrey Hepburn play an escort or a socialite in this movie? The truth is that no one really knows what Holly Golightly is. At any rate, we are sure that you would agree with us when we call her irresistible! There is a good reason you will always find people dressed as her at Halloween.
Nancy Callahan In Sin City
How do you feel about noir? You might not be the biggest fan of the genre, but we are sure that you were a convert the moment that you saw Jessica Alba in Sin City. As Nancy Callahan, it was practically impossible to focus on anything else once she is in the frame.
Maggie Pollitt In Cat On A Hot Tin Roof
It is not easy to pick our favorite Liz Taylor role because she always knocked it out of the ballpark. Despite this, it is clear that Maggie Pollitt from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a strong contender. After all, her seductive desperation really elevates the classic. She was truly a Hollywood legend!
Selene In The Underworld Series
We do not know how you feel about science fiction, but you were wrong if you thought that the genre was dead! It has produced a lot of amazing classics over the years. For example, there is no way that we would ever forget about Kate Beckinsale as a professional killer. That bodysuit made our jaws drop!
Vivian Ward In Pretty Woman
This is probably the role that Julia Roberts is most famous for. The modern Cinderella story has her play a prostitute who turns into the girlfriend of a millionaire. It is still up for debate whether Vivian Ward wore better outfits before or after Rodeo Drive. We will let you be the judge of that.
Latika In Slumdog Millionaire
Freida Pinto is as lovely as ever in this award-winning movie by Danny Boyle. The actress played the gorgeous teenager from the Indian slums. In the film, Latika was the love interest of the main character, who was brought to life by Dev Patel. She is always a stunner no matter what role she plays!
Black Widow (Claire Voyant) In Iron Man 2 And The Avengers
Despite all the flak that she has received in recent years, we can’t deny that Scarlett Johansson is beautiful. Those doe eyes and amazing figure will make anyone fall to their knees. She always looks stunning, but we daresay that looks as good on her as her black spy outfit.
Lisa In Weird Science
Are you the type of person to make fun of geeks and nerds? You might want to rethink your stance on them. After all, Lisa would not have turned into a real person in this movie if the main character was a jock! Kelly LeBrock was beautiful as the computer-created dream girl, but that was a given.
Santanico Pandemonium In From Dusk Till Dawn
When it comes to femme fatale, good luck beating Santanico Pandemonium. Don’t you just love watching Salma Hayek play the high priestess of evil? It was game over the moment that she started to dance on the table. Who would have thought that evil could look so good? We dig it.
Elizabeth Swann In The Pirates Of The Caribbean Series
This series has always been marketed as a family-friendly franchise, but we are not entirely convinced. After all, Keira Knightley is always there to spice up the scenes! There is no way that we could possibly forget Elizabeth Swann. Simply put, the movies would not have been fun if she was not in it.
Cataleya Restrepo In Colombiana
Let us be honest here. Zoe Saldana looks good in just about anything and everything. Even so, we can’t think of a role that can beat this one. She played a contract killer by the name of Cataleya Restrepo in Colombiana. We doubt that we need to say any more than that!
Jessica Rabbit In Who Framed Roger Rabbit
There is no rule that we can’t add a cartoon character to the list. Come on, we all know that Jessica Rabbit is one of the hottest characters to grace the silver screen. Who would have thought that an illustration could ooze so much sex appeal? The people who created her deserve a lot of kudos for pulling off something like this.
Luisa Cortés In Y Tu Mamá También
Some people do not enjoy foreign films because they can’t be bothered to read the subtitles. The good news is that you can still enjoy Y Tu Mamá También
even if you do not speak Spanish at all. The only thing that you have to do is to keep your eyes on Maribel Verdu as Luisa Cortes. That’s it.
Barbarella In Barbarella
First of all, we can understand your reservations about a sex kitten that undergoes intergalactic adventures. Fair enough, it is a little out there. Despite this, you might want to keep your hesitations to yourself. We promise you that Jane Fonda as the title character will change your mind in no time at all.
Catwoman In Batman Returns
It goes without saying that anyone cast to play Catwoman will be a stone-cold fox. However, some people are better suited for the role than anyone else. Just take a look at Michelle Pfeiffer. She looked like a natural in the leather catsuit! It should be illegal for anyone to look that fierce.
Catherine Tramell In Basic Instinct
Certain viewers of this movie came out of the cinema scarred for life. Still, there is no point in denying that Sharon Stone was drop-dead gorgeous as a crime novelist by the name of Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct. This only goes to show that there is something irresistibly sexy about danger.
Honeychile Rider In Dr. No
There is a lot of hate for Bond girls. Some people think that they are nothing more than eye candy. If you ask us, this was not true for Ursula Andress at all. She played Honeychile Rider in Dr. No. The beach scene in the movie was truly a gift. We feel blessed every single time that we watch it.
Foxy Brown In Foxy Brown
In this ‘70s film, we got to watch Pam Grier battle a ton of villains. Needless to say, she did all of that with her sexiness at full display. There is no one quite like Foxy Brown out there. The tagline of the movie is “I’m a whole lot of woman.” We definitely cannot argue with that.
Lisbeth Salander In The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Over the years, we have seen Rooney Mara play a variety of roles. However, nothing is more iconic than her portrayal of Lisbeth Salander. In The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, she donned a goth-like getup to play the hacker. She might not be a Bond girl, but we dig all the ink and rage that came with it.
Alex Owens In Flashdance
If you ask us, Jennifer Beals already looked amazing as a welder in a jumpsuit in Flashdance. But what happens when you also make her dance in a leotard in the same movie? Well, it is like getting the best of both worlds! We are just glad that the actress can pull off both things with equal panache.
Maria Elena In Vicky Cristina Barcelona
No one really wants to deal with their psycho ex, right? Well, your answer might be different if you had an ex-girlfriend who looked exactly like Maria Elena in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Penelope Cruz showed us what she was made of. Honestly, we would have taken her back if she were our ex!
Camille Montes In Quantum of Solace
Around half of the movie showed Olga Kurylenko with dirt all over her face. It did not really matter all that much to us, however. Even though she was scruffy and dirty, she was still stunning. Don’t you wish you could pull off the same thing? She made it seem so effortless as well!
Sugar Kane In Some Like It Hot
Everyone could not help but stare at Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot. In the comedy film, the actress delivered an amazing performance in the role of a nightclub chanteuse called Sugar Cane. Her two co-stars had a lot more screen time than she did, but she knocked it out of the park.
Héloïse In Portrait Of A Lady On Fire
You might not have heard of this movie unless you are a fan of indie cinema. If you have not seen it yet, it is not too late to pick it up! Adele Haenel impressed us with her portrayal of a conflicted bride-to-be called Heloise. We are sure that her performance will blow you away as well!
Emmeline Lestrange In The Blue Lagoon
First of all, we have to say that this is a pretty strange movie. However, it was totally mesmerizing at the same time. It was all about a pair of teenagers shipwrecked on an island. The majority of the film shows Brooke Shields practically naked, which is enough to draw in a lot of audiences.
Elena Montero In The Mask Of Zorro
Let us face it. No one can resist a heroine with a sword in hand, especially not when the character is played by someone like Catherine Zeta-Jones. The fact that she speaks Spanish as Elena Montero is simply the cherry on top. Nothing says sexy quite like a bilingual dream girl!
Wonder Woman In Wonder Woman
It is a given that any actress who is cast to play this superheroine will be smoking hot. True enough, Gal Gadot is nothing short of a major babe. If you ask us, they picked the perfect person for the job! It is delightful to see her in the part of the most iconic heroine in the DC universe.
Mikaela Banes In The Transformers Series
We totally understand if you are not into giant robots that can transform into a car. It is an acquired taste. Even so, we doubt that you can say the same thing about Meghan Fox. She was easy on the eyes, especially when she wore a crop top and worked on cars. The movie won’t be the same without her.
Shoshanna Dreyfus In Inglourious Basterds
In our humble opinion, Inglourious Basterds was one of the greatest masterpieces in recent memory. Part of this has something to do with Melanie Laurent. The actress played Shoshanna Dreyfus, a cinema operator who is more than meets the eye. She was so hot that she could set fires! Get it?
Lara Croft In Tomb Raider
When you adapt a video game for the big screen, people are bound to have high expectations for it. This was true for Tomb Raider. Sadly, viewers were not happy with how bland the plot was. On the bright side, Angelina Jolie totally killed it as Lara Croft. We could not have asked for a better actress!
Fanny Chenal In A Good Year
Marion Cotillard is simply gorgeous, full stop. The French actress appears in A Good Year as a small-town girl by the name of Fanny Chenal. We can totally see why a workaholic businessman would become a love-drunk expat for her. Come on… we bet you would leave everything behind for her too!
Jennifer North In Valley Of The Dolls
From what we saw in Valley of the Dolls, it is not easy to be a chorus line girl. Sharon Tate plays Jennifer North in this classic film. The stunning but talentless woman spirals out of control thanks to her pill problem. In the end, she works on “art house” films before meeting her untimely death.
Séverine Serizy In Belle De Jour
It goes without saying that Belle de Jour was a true masterpiece. You should watch it if you haven’t gotten around to it. In this film, Catherine Deneuve plays a bored housewife with masochistic fantasies. At the end of the movie, Severine Serizy creates a fake name and starts working at a brothel.
Dr. Madeleine Swann In Spectre
Is there any role that Lea Seydoux can’t pull off? We doubt it. The French actress has been making waves in the industry for a while now, but she never fails to impress. She got to play another Bond girl in Spectre. Not everyone has the je ne sais quoi needed to play Dr. Madeleine Swann.
Adelina Sbaratti In Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow
They simply do not make movies like they used to. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is a classic film for a good reason. It was already cheeky enough to cast Sophia Loren in the role of a black market vendor. They then doubled down on it by making her do a daring strip tease!
Marie “Slim” Browning In To Have and Have Not
Over the course of her career, Lauren Bacall has played a number of iconic characters. We daresay that our favorite one would be Marie “Slim” Browning in To Have and Have Not. The honor definitely goes to the American that sings, pickpockets and does whatever she likes in France. We would do anything to have her turn that smoldering gaze on us.
