The Sexiest Characters In Cinema - The Women
You voted, and here are the results of our poll
Forget George Clooney, pay no attention to Scarlett Johansson. This is about film characters, not film stars, and we asked you to decide on the most attractive fictional creatures of all time. We probably shouldn't have been surprised at the number of catsuit-wearers who turned up in the results (they just outnumber the bikini or tuxedo lovers) but you may be surprised by a few names here, both for how high (or low) certain heartthrobs place and who makes the cut. Read on to learn more, and even learn a few ace chat-up lines that are GUARANTEED to work if you ever meet these fictional characters...

    Should Gilda be higher or off the list?
    Higher
    Off the list!


    Gilda
    Profession  Nightclub chanteuse; Moll
    Played by  Rita Hayworth
    In  Gilda (1946)
    A bit of a twisted sister, this one. She gets a lot more passionate about the man she professes to hate than with the husband she claims to adore, and seems to take promises and marriage vows with a pinch of salt – although of course that strategy doesn't work out so well for her as her choice in men works rather against her. Still, with her upward tilted glances, swishing hair and femme fatale ways, worrying about mere death or dismemberment as a result of flirting with her seems worth the risk.
    Moment of hotness  Her taste in men runs to the dangerous. These Evil Exes would cause a problem for anyone.
    Ideal chat up line  "Darling, I hate you, I hate you so much."
    Any drawbacks?  Her taste in men runs to the dangerous. These Evil Exes would cause a problem for anyone.

    4 Whaaaaaat!!!!!
    Elizabeth Swan is one of the most underwhelming characters of that whole saga, not helped by a completely wooden peformance from Knightley herself. Give Gilda her rightful place in the top ten. Read More

    6 You forgot to hook up the doll
    Firstly bravo Dirtyfunkymonkey, it's not just geeky it's cliched and outside of being a bit of fun, a real insult to women, Jessica Rabbit no2? and Lara Croft no1 there are clearly much more stronger and more seductive female characters in the filmiverse. Surely if your going to compile a list of masturbatory icons, why not include the Alpha Omega of them all, the hypothetical woman made felsh; Lisa from 'Weird Science' as played by Kelly LeBrock.

    7 GEEKY!!
    Jesus, how geeky was all that! Was this list compiled by a bunch of spotty teens or some guys who spend far too long w*nking over so called Sci-Fi babes whilst wondering what it would feel like to shag an alien... Come on guys, seriously. Where are the women. Kathleen Turner in Body Heat or Linda Fiorentino in The Last Seduction for example. Bo Derek in 10 perhaps?? But no. We get fucking Star Wars characters and blue aliens... Read More

    9 Well said Tommypocket!
    I agree with you. What about Maria Elena in Vickie Christina Barcelona, or Malena? Glad to see the sophisticated and beautiful Vesper though, proving that a few men have taste. Read More
