9. Gretchen Mol as Bettie Page, The Notorious Bettie Page (2005)
Those who regularly watch HBO's Boardwalk Empire (as you all should) know just how fiercely sexy actress Gretchen Mol isâ€”as the scheming, Oedipal bad girl Gillian, she often uses seduction tactics and her hot body to get her way. And back when she played pin-up queen Bettie Page in the 2005 biopic The Notorious Bettie Page, Mol perfected that kind of physical manipulation.
Mostly clad in lingerie, Mol's interpretation of Bettie Page is a nicely controlled balancing act between provocative exhibitionism (whether it's with whips or mouth-gags) and small-town girl innocence (before her porno hustles, Page was just your average Tennessee girl).
