    Default Hollywood's Familiar Femme Fatales

    Hollywood's Familiar Femme Fatales




    The last two decades have revitalized and redefined the femme fatale role within cinema, combining sex appeal with a toughness and cunning that makes them some of the most powerful characters on celluloid. That's in no small part to the women who have played them, so let's dive into some of the actresses who have made the part of femme fatale their own.

    Angelina Jolie




    Perhaps it's the natural sultriness she exudes effortlessly, but Angelina Jolie has developed quite the femme fatale resume, from her early work in Original Sin to the more recent action flicks Salt and Wanted. Heck, even her animated roles in Beowulf, Kung-Fu Panda, and Shark Tale have been right in line with the femme fatale rep. Then there's Mr. & Mrs. Smith where Jolie's onscreen fatale vibe crossed over into real life a bit.

    Uma Thurman




    In a movie filled with cool, no one was more hip than Uma Thurman in her breakout femme fatale role in Pulp Fiction. Since then, her fatale roles have gone from comic (The Producers) to kickass (Kill Bill), but she's still just as super cool as ever.

    Keira Knightley




    Keira Knightley tackles the range of femme fatale roles; she can go tough and contemporary in Domino or take it classical in her period pieces like Atonement and Pride & Prejudice. Either way, her stunning looks and acting chops make it work.

    Zoe Saldana




    Even though Zoe Saldana is relatively new to scene, she's already honing in on her femme fatale mysique. Both The Losers and her latest, Columbiana, have Saldana seducing the boys and then kicking their butts. And, wow, does she look great doing both.

    Lucy Liu




    As we saw with Uma Thurman, Tarantino has a thing for femme fatales, and Lucy Liu didn't let him down when she played the sword-wielding crime lord in his Kill Bill. One minute she's quiet and demure, the next she's yelling commands and slicing heads.

    Rebecca Romijn




    Rebecca Romijn has the honor of actually being in a movie called Femme Fatale, but her more memborable role is the shape-shifting Mystique in the first two X-Men movies. Even when she takes the form of someone different, there's still something sexy just knowing that form can flip back to Romijn. We're just saying we'll take our chances.

    Eva Green




    If you're looking for a femme fatale that embodies the old film noir bombshells, look no further than Eva Green. As both the love interest and turncoat in Casino Royale, Green brought emotion back to the Bond franchise and brought out the best in her co-star Daniel Craig. Her pinup good-looks definitely helped her cause as well.

    Sarah Michelle Gellar




    On the one hand, Sara Michelle Gellar got her start kicking vampire butt before Twilight was cool, but it was her turn in Cruel Intentions that demonstrated the versatility that really helped her take off. As a rich, two-faced prep school mean girl, Gellar owned the femme fatale position, manipulating people into turmoil simply to satisfy a sadistic emptiness in her soul.

    Charlize Theron




    With her sultry charm and effortless sex appeal, you can bet that Charlize Theron has a few femme fatale roles on her resume. Perhaps the most notable was also her breakout: The most memorable scene in 2 Days in the Valley has Theron vacillate between sleeping with James Spader and killing him. (Luckily for Spader, it ends in the former.)

    Natasha Henstridge
    Is there anything more femme fatale-like than a alien taking the form of a beautiful woman in order to seduce and destroy the men of earth? Probably not, which is why Natasha Henstidge has to make the list. Species simultaneously had men both fearing and fantasizing about Henstridge.

    Nicole Kidman




    If a femme fatale uses her sex appeal and cunning to make men do whatever she wants, no matter how wrong or misguided, then Nicole Kidman's character in To Die For takes the cake. No one stands a chance as she callously takes down everyone in her path to get what she thinks she deserves.

    Demi Moore
    While sexual harassment is no joke, Demi Moore made a lot of men wish they had Michael Douglas' job in Disclosure. And let's not forget the unfair femme fatale designation she got from the townspeople in The Scarlett Letter.

    Kim Basinger
    Kim Basinger won an Oscar for playing a femme fatale character who was trying to be Veronica Lake, who was famous for a few femme fatale roles herself. Still with us? Well, Basinger's L.A. Confidential performance went above and beyond the old Hollywood starlets she was channeling. Although we shouldn't be surprised when she has Nine 1/2 Weeks up her femme fatale sleeve.

    Rosario Dawson
    Few women exude the combination of beauty and strength like Rosario Dawson. From the stylized Sin City to the girl power revenge moments of Death Proof, Dawson almost makes you scared to be attracted to her. But there's no fighting it, she's sexy and powerful, and that adds up to major desirability.
