#10: ASHLEY JUDD AS CHARLENE SHIHERLIS IN HEAT (1995)

Michael Mann’s widely adored Heat really does have it all: a great cast, dynamic performances, kinetic action, and, last but not least, a gorgeous homewrecker. The last component is Ashley Judd, sporting blonde-dyed hair and vamping it up as Val Kilmer’s adulterous wife. With so many bodies dropping and guns busting, it’s nice to think about something other than bullet-ridden corpses every time Judd appears on screen. Though, the word “busting” still applies.
