Jessica Alba

Jessica AlbaJessica Alba, born in Pomona, California in 1981, rose to fame as the lead actress in James Cameron's biopunk science fiction television series Dark Angel (2000–2002) in which she played the role of Max Guevara, a genetically enhanced super-soldier. (Very nicely enhanced, indeed!) She has gone on to appear in numerous films and was voted number one on AskMen.com's list of "99 Most Desirable Women" in 2006, as well as "Sexiest Woman in the World" by FHM in 2007. After being ranked No. 1 on Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list (2001), she said "I have to go to certain lengths to use sexuality to my advantage, while guiding people to thinking the way I want them to."

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle PfeifferMichelle Pfeiffer’s sleek bob and backless gown in Brian De Palma's Scarface (1983) transformed her overnight into one of Hollywood's biggest sex symbols. Born in Santa Ana, California in 1958, she would go on to cement this status in the late 1980s with a string of critically acclaimed performances in the films Dangerous Liaisons (1988), Married to the Mob (1988), and The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) for which she won the Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama award in 1990. We'll cut her some slack for Grease 2, especially after her turn as Selina Kyle (Catwoman), a role for which Rolling Stone praised her for giving the "feminist avenger a tough core of intelligence and wit" ... not to mention filling out the catsuit nicely.

Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth TaylorOne of the great screen actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was born in Hampstead Garden Suburb, near London, in 1932. Her much publicized personal life included eight marriages, and she played a major role in sparking the sexual revolution of the 1960s, pushing the envelope on sexuality. Not only was she one of the first mainstream actresses to shed her clothes onscreen, she was also one of the first major stars to pose nude (mostly) in Playboy. In A Place in the Sun, filmed when she was just 17, her surprising maturity shocked Hollywood columnist Hedda Hopper, who wrote of her precocious sexuality, and film historian Andrew Sarris described her love scenes with Montgomery Clift as "unnerving—sybaritic—like gorging on chocolate sundaes." Elizabeth Taylor would go on to star alongside some of the most attractive male stars -– such as Rock Hudson, James Dean, and Paul Newman – but her sex appeal rivaled or surpassed theirs on the screen. She won two Academy Awards for Best Actress: for her performance in Butterfield 8 in 1960, and for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? in 1966, and social critic Camille Paglia, described Taylor as "the greatest actress in film history."

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn MonroeDuring her all-too-brief life, Marilyn Monroe overcame a difficult childhood to become of the world's biggest and most enduring sex symbols. Born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles, she would eventually dye her hair blonde and change her name to Marilyn Monroe, embarking on a movie career in 1946. Her career didn't really take off until the 1950s when a small part in John Huston's crime drama The Asphalt Jungle (1950) earned her a lot of attention. That same year she impressed audiences and critics alike as Claudia Caswell in All About Eve, starring alongside film great Bette Davis. In 1953, a young copywriter named Hugh Hefner mortgaged his furniture in order to raise enough money to purchase the rights to nude photos Monroe had taken for a calendar shoot in 1949 before her career took off. Hefner used these photos to launch Playboy magazine, and the first issue sold over 50,000 copies. Marilyn Monroe's "dumb blonde" persona was used to comedic effect in such films as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) and The Seven Year Itch (1955), but her personal life was a disaster. Marriages to baseball great Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller fell apart quickly. She was also rumored to have been involved with U. S. President John F. Kennedy and/or his brother Robert around the time of her death, the circumstances of which have been the subject of much conjecture. Though officially classified as a "probable suicide", the possibility of an accidental overdose, as well as the possibility of homicide, have not been ruled out. In the years and decades following her death, Monroe has often been cited as a pop and cultural icon.

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett JohanssonBorn in New York City on November 22, 1984, Scarlett Johansson began acting during childhood.

In 2003, she began the transition to adult roles with Sofia Coppola's film Lost in Translation, in which she played Charlotte, an abandoned young wife, opposite Bill Murray. The New York Times wrote of Johansson's performance: "At 18, the actress gets away with playing a 25-year-old woman by using her husky voice to test the level of acidity in the air." Johansson appeared nude on the cover of the March 2006 issue of Vanity Fair alongside actress Keira Knightley and fashion designer Tom Ford. She was named "Sexiest Woman Alive" in November 2006 by Esquire, and in February 2007, she was named the "Sexiest Celebrity" of the year by Playboy. In 2010, GQ Magazine named Johansson its Babe of The Year.

Her first starring role was in Aida (1953), for which she received critical acclaim, but her breakthrough came in 1954 with Gold of Naples, a comedy directed by Vittorio De Sica. Sophia became an international film star in 1958 when she signed a five-picture contract with Paramount Pictures which lead to roles in Desire Under the Elms and Houseboat. One of the most beloved and recognizable figures in the international film world, Loren has won 50 international awards, including two Oscars, seven Golden Globe Awards, a Grammy Award, a BAFTA Award and a Laurel Award, and has the distinction of being the first actress to win an Academy Award for a non-English-speaking performance.

As Bond girl Giacinta 'Jinx' Johnson in the 2002 blockbuster Die Another Day, Berry recreated a scene from Dr. No, emerging from the surf to be greeted by James Bond as Ursula Andress had 40 years earlier. In 2001, her portrayal of Leticia Musgrove in Monster's Ball earned her the honor of being the first African American to win the Oscar for Best Actress.

She won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the drama Girl, Interrupted (1999) and solidified her position as a modern sex symbol (and delighted video game nerds everywhere) with her portrayal of video game heroine Lara Croft in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003). Noted for promoting humanitarian causes as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Jolie has been proclaimed "most beautiful woman in the world" by numerous sources including People Magazine (2006) and Vanity Fair (2008) and was named "first perfect woman" by Vogue in 2002.
