If you want to strip it down to its bare bones, Hollywood is just a huge game of make-believe. Actors and actresses are cast to play certain roles so that they can pretend to be these characters for our viewing pleasure. We all need to escape from our own problems and issues every now and then, right? Aside from the escapism that comes with it, who does not enjoy watching gorgeous people for hours on end? This list is all about the sexiest fictional characters in film history. Mind you, it takes more than just good looks to bring a sexy character to life. If they had chosen other people for these roles, it simply would not have been the same.

Meet The Hottest Fictional Characters In The History Of Cinema

Madison In Splash

When you watch this ‘80s movie, we dare you to tear your eyes away from Daryl Hannah. As a word of warning, this might not be possible. By the end of the movie, she will have you believing in mermaids! They like to say that there is plenty of fish in the sea, but Madison must be the most radiant of them all.

Princess Leia In the Star Wars Saga

Do you agree that the Star Wars movies are family-friendly? We would agree that this is the case most of the time. However, there is one scene that has us wondering if that is the correct answer. We do not know about you, but our jaws dropped when we saw Carrie Fisher in the prisoner getup.

Naomi Lapaglia In The Wolf Of Wall Street

You might be surprised to hear that The Wolf of Wall Street was based on a true story. If you ask us, that only makes it even more fascinating than it already is! This does not make much of a difference for certain people. We are talking about those who only had their eyes on Margot Robbie.

Arwen In The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy

When you say elves, most people will think about the small hard-working Christmas creatures. We are glad that Liv Tyler showed up to change the way we look at them! In the fantasy trilogy, she played the ethereal Arwen. She always made for a nice change in scenery after seeing what the others go through.

Holly Golightly In Breakfast At Tiffany’s

It is not easy to tell what exactly Audrey Hepburn was in the movie. Others think that she was an escort, while some viewers think that she was a socialite. We never know with Holly Golightly. However, we can’t deny that she was smoking hot. Ladies do not dress up like her for Halloween for no reason.

Nancy Callahan In Sin City

Noir is a genre that not everyone will like. Regardless of how you feel about it, we bet that you will agree with us when we add Jessica Alba as Nancy Callahan to the list. To be honest with you, we found it hard to focus on the plot of Sin City because she always distracted us when she showed up.

Maggie Pollitt In Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

Liz Taylor has played a lot of iconic roles, so it is not easy to pick one. At any rate, her portrayal of Maggie Pollitt in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a winner in our books. The classic movie would not have been the same if it were not for her seductive presence. Indeed, she was a Hollywood legend.

Selene In The Underworld Series

Say what you will about science fiction, but you are wrong to think that it is dead. Over the years, we have seen a lot of interesting entries in the genre. For one thing, it was a lot of fun to watch Kate Beckinsale as Selene in the Underworld saga. She was nothing short of sexy in her bodysuit.

Vivian Ward In Pretty Woman

While Julia Roberts has played a lot of roles in the past, this might be the most iconic one. She brought a Cinderella story to life by playing a prostitute who winds up in the arms of a millionaire. Some people continue to argue whether her outfits were better before or after Rodeo Drive. What do you think?

Latika In Slumdog Millionaire

As usual, Freida Pinto was stunning when she starred in this popular Danny Boyle movie. It is hard to believe that she still looked gorgeous when she had to play a teenager from the slums of India. Latika is the romantic interest of the main character, who was played by Dev Patel. She is a natural beauty.

Black Widow (Claire Voyant) In Iron Man 2 And The Avengers

Recently, Scarlett Johansson has been under fire for playing certain characters. In our opinion, it would be better to stick to roles like this one. The actress has never failed to blow us away every single time that she portrays Black Widow. With her stunning physique and doe eyes, she is the epitome of beauty!

Lisa In Weird Science

You should rethink your life choices if you are the sort of person who makes fun of nerds and geeks. In this movie, the main character would not have brought Lisa to life if he had been less smart. Anyway, we added this to the list because Kelly LeBrock was super gorgeous as the computer-generated dream girl.

Santanico Pandemonium In From Dusk Till Dawn

It would be hard for us to talk about femme fatales without mentioning Santanico Pandemonium! It was a lot of fun to watch Salma Hayek as the high priestess of evil. As soon as she started dancing on the table, you knew that she was in a league of her own. We never knew that evil can look this good.

Elizabeth Swann In The Pirates Of The Caribbean Series

This is another movie series that likes to think that it is appropriate for the entire family. We do not really agree with that assessment. After all, Keira Knightly never fails to spice it up no matter what scene she is in. To be fair, Elizabeth Swann truly made the saga a lot more fun.

Cataleya Restrepo In Colombiana

In reality, Zoe Saldana is drop-dead gorgeous. We do not doubt that she would look fantastic in any role that you give her. Even so, she took it to a whole new level when she played Cataleya Restrepo in this movie. We honestly do not think that it can get any hotter than her role as a contract killer.

Jessica Rabbit In Who Framed Roger Rabbit

No one said that we could not add cartoon characters to this list! You must be blind if you don’t think Jessica Rabbit is as hot as they come. Yes, we are also impressed that something drawn in ink could have this much sex appeal. The folks who made her deserves high praise for making such a thing happen.

Luisa Cortés In Y Tu Mamá También

If you ask us, it is silly to refuse to watch a foreign film because you do not want to read the subtitles. Ladies and gents, we are not joking when we say that it is worth the effort! You should watch this movie even if you can’t understand Spanish. It is still enjoyable as long as you stare at Maribel Verdu.

Barbarella In Barbarella

All right, fine. We can see why some people are not convinced that it would be nice to watch a sex kitten go on intergalactic adventures. To be fair, it is a truly bizarre plot. Even so, you should not knock it until you try it! At the very least, we can promise you that it was fun to watch Jane Fonda as Barbarella.

Catwoman In Batman Returns

We doubt that they would ever cast any actress to play Catwoman if they were not smoking hot. Despite this, some actresses pulled off the role better than others did. Michelle Pfeiffer was pretty much made to play this comic book character. Just look at how great she looked in the tight leather catsuit. Meow!

Catherine Tramell In Basic Instinct

This movie has scarred a lot of viewers when it first came out. While this is the case, we are sure that you would agree with us when we say that Sharon Stone looked amazing when she played the crime novelist in this movie. As Catherine Tramell, she showed us that danger can be truly irresistibly sexy.

Honeychile Rider In Dr. No

A lot of people dislike Bond girls because they think that they are simply decorative. This was not at all the case for Ursula Andress, who brought Honeychile Rider to life in Dr. No. Still, we agree with the idea that she was very easy on the eyes. That beach scene truly felt like a blessing of sorts!

Foxy Brown In Foxy Brown

Pam Grier had been one of the biggest stars of the ‘70s. As Foxy Brown, we watched her fend off one villain after another. It is amazing that she got to pull it off in the sexiest way imaginable. The tagline of this movie had been “I’m a whole lot of woman.” That, she definitely was! How fitting is that?

Lisbeth Salander In The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

It is neat to see how Rooney Mara can transform to play certain roles in various films. In The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, she had to go through a quite dramatic transformation to play Lisbeth Salander. If you ask us, she did a stellar job of pulling off the ink, the piercing, and the difficult hairstyle.

Alex Owens In Flashdance

To be fair, Jennifer Beals is always stunning no matter what she does. However, she made our hearts beat faster when she put on a jumpsuit in this film. She likewise made our jaws drop when she donned the leotard later on! It felt like we got the best of both worlds from her in Flashdance.

Maria Elena In Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Most of the time, no one wants to deal with the psycho ex-girlfriend. But we wonder if this would still be the case if she looked like Penelope Cruz. She looked as stunning as ever when she brought Maria Elena to life in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. We have no idea how anyone would not take her back.

Camille Montes In Quantum of Solace

For a good chunk of the movie, Olga Kurylenko had dirt on her face! Even though she was a bit scruffy, she still looked as gorgeous as ever. How is that even possible? We honestly do not know. It is a given that Bond girls are gorgeous, but we daresay that she was a cut above the rest.

Sugar Kane In Some Like It Hot

We do not think that it is possible to keep your eyes away from Marilyn Monroe in this film. She played a nightclub chanteuse by the name of Sugar Kane in Some Like It Hot. As always, she was a vision to behold. She had less screen time than her co-stars, which made us savor the scenes with her.

Héloïse In Portrait Of A Lady On Fire

If you have seen this movie already, we bet that you like indie cinema. Even if this is not your usual cup of tea, you might want to check it out! We promise you that Adele Haenel will at least impress you with her performance as the conflicted bride-to-be. Not only is she talented, but she is gorgeous as well!

Emmeline Lestrange In The Blue Lagoon

We will admit that The Blue Lagoon is a strange movie. Even so, it still had a mesmerizing quality to it. The movie was about two teenagers who got shipwrecked on an island. A lot of people only watched it for Brooke Shields, who looked nothing short of stunning in the role of Emmeline.

Elena Montero In The Mask Of Zorro

There are many different ways to be sexy. You might not think it, but there is something very attractive about a gorgeous woman with a sword in her hand! Catherine Zeta-Jones made this come true when she played Elena Montero in The Mask of Zorro. She was a total dream girl in this role!

Wonder Woman In Wonder Woman

We doubt that they would ever cast someone ugly to play Wonder Woman. No one was surprised to see that Gal Gadot is dreamy. When it comes to looks, it is hard to find someone who can take her place. She made the superhero film even more entertaining to watch. It should be illegal to be that gorgeous!

Mikaela Banes In The Transformers Series

All right, we understand if you do not like the concept of giant robots that turn into cars. Yes, it truly is an acquired taste. A lot of people had been glad that Meghan Fox was there to save the day. As always, she was a sight for sore eyes. However, she looked even sexier when she fixed up cars in a crop top!

Shoshanna Dreyfus In Inglourious Basterds

If you ask us, Inglourious Basterds was one of the most amazing movies in the past decade or so. It would not have been such a success if it were not for Melanie Laurent. The French actress was cast to play Shoshanna Dreyfus. It was very fun to see her as the cinema operator out for vengeance.

Lara Croft In Tomb Raider

People had high expectations for this movie even before it came out. This is always the case when you adapt a popular video game for the big screen. We are sad to report that a lot of fans were not blown away by this movie. The good news is that Angelina Jolie was smoking hot in the role of Lara Croft.

Fanny Chenal In A Good Year

Anyone with eyes will agree with us when we say that Marion Cotillard is gorgeous. She played Fanny Chenal, a girl from a small town, in A Good Year. In the movie, she turned a workaholic businessman into a love-drunk expat. If we had been in his place, we would probably do the same thing.

Jennifer North In Valley Of The Dolls

If you have ever seen Valley of the Dolls, you might have been enchanted by the way Sharon Tate played this chorus line girl. In the classic film, she played a lovely but talentless woman whose pill problem spirals out of control. Sadly, she resorts to making “art house” movies until she meets her end.

Séverine Serizy In Belle De Jour

Many people who have seen Belle de Jour think that it is a masterpiece. We are behind them on that! In the film, Catherine Deneuve plays Severine Serizy. The character is a bored housewife who has masochistic fantasies. In the end, she uses a fake alias and begins to work at a brothel.

Dr. Madeleine Swann In Spectre

It is hard to think of a role that Lea Seydoux won’t be able to do justice. This French actress has been in the industry for quite some time now. Let us just say that she has never disappointed us. She joins the other bond girls on the list for her portrayal of Dr. Madeleine Swann in Spectre.

Adelina Sbaratti In Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow

It is sad but true. They just do not make films the way that they used to. There is a good reason Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is considered a classic film! We have to say that it was a lot of fun to watch Sophia Loren play a black market vendor in this movie. That strip tease of hers was killer.

Marie “Slim” Browning In To Have and Have Not

Lauren Bacall has been cast to play a lot of unforgettable characters over the years. It is hard to pick a favorite among them, but let us just go with Marie “Slim” Browning in To Have and Have Not. In this movie, she played an American woman who sings, steals, and does anything that she wants in France. We would die if she ever looks at us with her smoldering gaze!
