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.
Beautiful and Blood-thirsty Vampires
Van Helsing: Verona, Marishka, Aleena
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'.
