Played By: Charlize Theron

In the spirit of equal opportunity, we would like to take this moment to remind you that women can be terribly scary rednecks too. Though she's just as violent as many of the other characters on this list, Aileen Wuornos (portrayed in an Oscar-winning performance by an unrecognizable Theron in this powerful biopic) elicits far more empathy than most of her peers in redneck violence. After years of prostitution, she tries to stick to the straight and narrow, but slim prospects send her back into turning tricks, even though one of her customers raped her.

Even though she had her reasons, no sane person would ever want to end up in the back seat of a car with Aileen.
