8. MELORA WALTERS AS JESSIE ST. VINCENT IN BOOGIE NIGHTS (1997)

Nearly everyone in Paul Thomas Anderson’s excellent Boogie Nights gets some loving, including Don Cheadle’s electronics-obsessed porn actor Buck Swope (what a name). Swope marries the petite yet sultry Jessie St. Vincent, played by P.T. Anderson favorite Melora Walters (she also co-starred in the filmmaker’s 1999 drama Magnolia).

Coiffed in a short blonde wig, Walters isn’t given a whole lot to do in Boogie Nights, other than stand by her man after he survives a messy donut store hold-up. We love a loyal woman, though, so she’s a keeper to us.
