12. Michelle Pfeiffer

Notable projects: Scarface (1983), The Witches Of Eastwick (1987), Married To The Mob (1988), Dangerous Liasons (1988), Batman Returns (1992), Dangerous Minds (1995), What Lies Beneath (2000)

Before Hollywood gets all nostalgic about Michelle Pfeiffer during her soon-to-happen career revival (to be kick-started by New Year’s Eve and heightened in next year’s Dark Shadows), it’s imperative that we all pay homage to one of ’80s cinema’s most acclaimed sexpots. It takes a special kind of actress to please both snooty critics and horny lunkheads, but somehow Pfeiffer did so in her prime, a prime example being how well she rocked the skintight latex suit in Batman Returns as Catwoman. Anne Hathaway best bring her A-game in next year’s The Dark Knight Rises.
