Sexy Black Actresses

As always whenever I do a hub on Sexy Men, my hubby wants to know immediately where the women are. Turnabout is fair play. Since I did a hub on Sexy Hispanic Stars - Men, Sexy Latina Stars and more recently Sexy Black Actors here are some of the Sexy Black Actresses that are sure to turn heads in anything that they star in. I am certain as always that I left some very important sexy women out but please enjoy those that I have included.

Triplet Mom 7 years ago from West Coast Author

Cris A, I actually just saw Lisa Bonet in something recently she is still a pretty woman and she is with Jason Momoa who is smoking hot!!

Goldentoad, From a girls perspective I have to agree with you. I find Jay-Z not too sexy at all so he is lucky; wealthy and with a beautiful girl at his side.

Triplet Mom 7 years ago from West Coast Author

C.C. this is a great place to confess. Just curious was it the short Star Trek outfits or the outer space thing that did it for you?! I actually remember seeing her a few years back and she still looked really good.

I certainly loved this list, but don't forget MONYQUE THOMPSON SCOTT? She's the brilliant actress from Lie To Me, Touye Pwen, and Champion Road 1 & 2. Not only is she beautiful, but she's uber talented... definitely leading lady material. Sexy, intelligent, powerful, and an action star.

So sad to hear of the passing of Tamara Dobson may she repose in peace. I vivdly recall the two Cleopatra Jones movies as they put a different slant on the genre of the martial arts craze and the psychedelic culture of that era. She was billed as 6 foot 2 of dynamite with the tag line 'if she is on your track you'll be on your back. She even went to Hong Kong to show em how it's done but unfortunatly a 'spin off' called Cleopatra Wong flopped miserably.


limpet profile image

limpet 2 years ago from London England

The inspiration for Cleopatra Jones may have originated with Trina Parks as Thumper in the 1971 production of Diamonds are forever . Trina who is actually a dancer was well suited to the choreographed two minute fight sequence and coupled with martial arts partner Bambi came across as an incredible duo. Among Trina's other credits was a bit part in the Blues Brothers.

Some more 'Dusky Queens' from our side of the pond. Martine Beswick (won't mention the Lady's age) is Jamaican born and was a 'pin up' poster girl in magazines and has the distinction of been in three James Bond films. Her leading roles cast her in jungle or prehistoric tribal roles. "Satisfy me or die!" she says to a male captive. When given a Hollywood contract Ms Beswick appeared as a Madam in the Happy Hooker series and also guest appearances in other series. Now retired Martine Beswick is an astute businesswoman living in London. Must briefly mention Moira Stuart a long time B.B.C. news presenter also retired but does promotional work on film. Moira has those sharp classical good looks that make you want to look twice.
