2. Halle Berry
Most Memorable Roles: Jinx in Die Another Day (2002)
With her love life recently taking center stage (her current fiancé Olivier Martinez and ex Gabriel Aubrey literally fought over her last year), it's easy to forget that Halle Berry is also hot because of her acting, with roles as a Bond girl in Die Another Day and Storm in the X-Men series.
At her best, she became the first and only African American ever to win the Academy Award for Best Actress, for her performance in 2001's Monster's Ball. At her worst, in Catwoman, she still looked her best. We think that evens out enough for us to forgive her for that performance.
