6. CHARLIZE THERON AS LAURA KENSINGTON IN THE CURSE OF THE JADE SCORPION (2001)

Despite looking like a catcher’s mitt in Monster, Charlize Theron is usually the most beautiful person on screen whenever she’s in frame. But in The Curse of the Jade Scorpion she is doubly hot as she tries to seduce a hypnotized CW Briggs (played by a sweaty palmed Woody Allen, of course). While the brainwashed Briggs may not have advanced on the sultry seductress, the steamy scene left many men squirming in their seats as she slowly began to show more and more skin.

The movie may not be essential viewing for all Woody Allen fans, but the beautiful Theron saves Curse from being a complete bust. And she also cleanses the palette after having to spend so much time looking at the burly features of Helen Hunt.
