Character: Velma Von Tussle
Let's not forget that Debbie Harry, lead singer of Blondie and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, also had acting chops. The multi-talented beauty starred as Velma Von Tussle, an overbearing stage mom and producer of The Corny Collins Show, in John Waters' original version of Hairspray in 1988.
In director Adam Shankman's 2007 remake, her shoes were filled by the perpetual knockout Michelle Pfeiffer, who seems to have found the fountain of youth. Seriously, she was 49-year-old when the movie was released.
Winner: Michelle Pfeiffer
