Sexiest Female Villains

Female villains have come a long way since Cinderella's two, very undesirable step-sisters, Anastasia and Drizella, more like the Godzilla twins. Bad used to be equated with ugly, but things changed many years ago. Most notably, female villainy turned sexy when Sharon Stone played Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct. For TV Soap addicts, we all know and love to hate, Erica Kain (played by Susan Lucci) on All My Children beginning in 1970. In addition, the first suspect in a Bond movie is often a gorgeous woman. Bad girls are getting better and better.

Vampire Vixens

Nothing says sexy like blood thirsty vampires. The un-dead fantasy world of sexy vampires isn't only for women. There are some treats for the men as well. Beginning with Salma Hayek as Satanico Pandemonium in 'From Dusk Till Dawn'. She had curves and fangs in all the right places. How about Aaliyah as Akasha in 'Queen of the Damned' ? She had some men saying "Damn, she's sexy!"

More recently, the Twilight Saga has become a series of fanatically popular movies. Granted, the leading vampire (Edward) and werewolf (Jacob) in the movies seem to make women as light-headed and faint as if they actually had the blood sucked right out of them. I guarantee the female vampire villain, Victoria, played by Rachelle Lefevre in 'New Moon' is at least one reason for the guys to see this movie. She is a red-hot, cold-blooded vampire vixen.

Hot and Horrid

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland

Let's not forget what Alice spoke about the Red Queen, "She's perfectly horrid", in 'Alice in Wonderland'. Tim Burton's recreation of this film was fantastic and incredibly imaginative. Although The Red Queen herself was not attractive by typical standards, she was a vivid, unforgettable character. Even more amazing was the transformation she did to go from hot to horrid for the film. Helena Bonham Carter was a perfect Red Queen and a perfect 10 in real life.

On the topic of hot to horrid, the recent movie, 'Black Swan' starring Natalie Portman as Nina. This was a psychological roller coaster and a sensual battle between hot and horrid.

Don't fight fair

What man doesn't love a woman who can kick his butt? A few ladies on this list are Demi Moore who played Madison Lee in 'Charlies Angels'. The most amazing thing about Demi Moore in this movie was her bikini scene where she sported a better body than the Charlies Angels girls who were several years her junior.

Not many people, let alone a woman, who can put fear into The Terminator unless you are the beautiful, but extremely ruthless and dangerous, Kristanna Loken in 'Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines'. Who knew an exotic beauty could make futuristic killing robots sexy?

Another two women to add to this list are Kate Nauta as Lola in 'The Transporter 2' and Lucy Liu as O-ren Ishi in 'Kill Bill'. I wouldn't bet on a fight against these ladies.

Sexy isn't all what it seems and can sometimes be wrapped up in a package including ultimate betrayal as well. The seductress will leave a man wondering what just happened and she's so good, he'll never see it coming. Manipulation and killer good looks is her weapon of choice.

Some of these ladies to watch out for are Sharon Stone as Catherine Tramell in the classic 'Basic Instinct'. We got to know Sharon very well in this movie.

Alicia Silverstone was barely old enough to know what seduction was, when she played Adrian Forrester in her film debut, 'The Crush'. Alicia Silverstone has the perfect look for an innocent girl with a secret crush. Watch out guys!

Speaking of innocent, Drew Barrymore went from little girl on 'E.T.' to sexy young woman in 'Poison Ivy'. Drew Barrymore played Ivy, a trashy temptress.  There is nothing more tempting than a deal with the devil, especially if the devil looks like Elizabeth Hurley in 'Bedazzled'.

There are many more of my favorites that deserve a mention such as Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman in 'Batman' and Rebecca Romijn as Mystique in 'X-Men' and Glenn Close in 'Fatal Attraction'.

All these girls are hotter than hell, but Drew B. has always just driven me out of my mind. I think she looks so damn special. Thanks L.

great list and photos too - I'd add Faye Dunaway's Milady D'Winter in The Three Musketeers, and Glenn Close in both Fatal Attraction and Dangerous Liasons as well as Sarah Michelle Gellar in the remake of the latter film, Cruel Intentions.

themanwithnopants~ I like Drew Barrymore a lot too. I really liked her in 50 First Dates with Adam Sandler.

arthurchappell~ I did think about Glenn Close- I remembered Fatal Attraction, but I totally forgot about Dangerous Liasons. I almost put down Sarah Michelle Gellar, but I think she turns out OK in the end of that movie. THanks so much for stopping by.

Ol Poolman~ thank you for the comment and reading.

Sweetsusieg~ Demi Moore has a secret fountain of youth she's not sharing with us. I wish I just had a fraction of what she has to stay young.

Robwrite~ thanks for the comment and I agree with Liz Hurley- she's a classic beauty!

dallas93444~ I liked making this list because I played "bad girls" in plays when I was in school- it was so fun!

arthurchappell 5 years ago from Manchester, England

Gellar doesn't turn out ok by the close of Cruel Intentions - her boyfriend does but his other girlfriend, the victim the duo play along, ultimately has to destroy Gellar's public reputation

izettl 5 years ago from The Great Northwest Author

arthurchappell~ You're probably right because it's been a while since I've seen the movie, so I thought she was better by the end, but now what you say rings a bell about the end.

arthurchappell 5 years ago from Manchester, England

yeah pretty sure i'm right on this one - it is a great film and performance by SMG

izettl 5 years ago from The Great Northwest Author

arthurchappell~ OK now I have to see it again. I'm sure you're right- you're jogging my memory. I've forgotten so much of that movie and it was really good. I was just watching Tim Burton's Alice in WOnderland again so I had to add the Red Queen to my list because Helena Bonham carter is gorgeous, a little odd as Red Queen, but I loved her role- outstanding!

Bonham Carter is a great villainess in Sweeney Todd too

Great choices and photos, Laura. Thank you.

With reference to Demi Moore, you stated in one of your comments, "I wish I just had a fraction of what she has to stay young."

Simple, ma'am, all you need is Ashton Kutcher.

arthurchappell~ I was looking up things about Helena Bonham Carter and saw that she was also a bad girl in Sweeney Todd, but I've never seen that movie. Add that one to the list that I need to check out.

drbj~ lol! yes, Ashton Kutcher could certainly help me out with a lot of things!

lordraven2000~ thanks for stopping by and cheking out the bad girls. I like them in movies for sure!

As Mae West said, "When i'm good i'm good, but when i'm bad i'm better." The bad girls always have more fun.

Good read on these beautiful girls who play villians. I loved Demi Moore in Ghosts with Patrick Swayze. Drew Barrymore also played a bad girl in a Western as a gun slinger. I'm not sure what it was called though.

Catwoman is an interesting example because I think no matter who played her you tended to take her side.

Laura-

It is so disconcerting when evil is so damn attractive!

As one who has been burned like a moth to the flame of a smokin' hot woman I can appreciate the dangers.

Personally, I prefer Jessica Rabbit (with the voice of Kathleen Turner) who proclaimed, "I'm not bad...I'm just drawn that way."

Great hub...I'm feeling the siren's call...the lure of the dangerous damsel. If my wife reads this that should be dangerous enough!

arthurchappell~ Mae West stuck out in my mind when I was writing this hub. I love that quote.

Loves to read~ My favorite movie was Ghost- loved it! I don't recall the Drew Barrymore western. I'll have to look it up. Thanks for the comment.

dahoglund~ I think we actually can like some of these characters because they have many layers to them and not all are bad. Yes, catwoman was such an intricate love/hate character whether if it was Michelle Pfeiffer or Selina Kyle. Great point- thanks.

THank you so much speedbird!

bugslady8949~ Thanks for the comment.

CP~ oh yes I remember Jessica Rabbit- great quote. Moth to a flame is a great analogy. Good luck with the wife!

Absolutely love Salma from 'From Dawn 'Till Dusk...she is a goddess! Drew Barrymore has also had a special place in my heart. It must be since we are about the same age & initially seeing here in E.T.

You missed three of my four favorites: Kerrigan (the Zerg Queen), The Borg Queen (which is actually a plurality since she is replaced if she dies - played by Alice Krige), and Glorificus (an evil deity trapped on earth in the Buffy series). At least you got Aaliyah (Queen of the damned).

Jen~ Well vampires seem to be on the sexy list yet who can imagine that anything to do with blood would be sexy?

David99999~ Hollywood does a great job of potraying beauty no matter good or scary- it's almost always sexy.

crystolite~ Somebody else mentioned her and honestly I've just learned about her. I never heard of her before, but very sexy indeed. Thanks for the input.
