24. Patricia Arquette

Notable projects: A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), True Romance (1993), Ed Wood (1994), Lost Highway (1997), Medium (TV series, 2005-2011)

Patricia Arquette’s sexuality is far more complex than the other women on this countdown. All of the necessary physical attributes are in check (pretty face, nice rack, tight curves), but the underused actress has a haunting quality to her that’s both fascinating and arousing. Maybe it’s her deep, penetrating, and alternately doe eyes, or how she projects disarming innocence into dangerously flawed characters. Whatever the case, Arquette is never less than spellbinding.
