Movies are generally interesting, and most of us love them. It is no surprise that the motion picture industry is still around even after over a century of being in existence and entertaining us all.

But let us face it, in the world of film there is nothing quite as captivating as seeing a bad girl dominate the big screen. Perhaps this can be attributed to the fact that women are more often than not portrayed as vulnerable, weak and delicate, or maybe the reason is as simple as that they are simply easy on the eyes, sexy to watch and behold.

Regardless of what the reason is, the fact remains that bad girls are fun to see on screen and aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. With this in mind, let us take a look at some of the most memorable and sexiest bad girls in the movies.

1.Fox (Wanted, 2008)

Of course, this list starts off with a nod to the enchanting Angelina Jolie. Here, she plays an expert assassin named Fox that schools James McAvoy’s character on the ins and outs of assassination. With a gun in hand, she certainly makes shooting look sexy. And with that gun aimed at us, it looks like she has gone in for the kill…

2.Catherine Trammel (Basic Instinct, 1992)

Oh, come on. Do not pretend that the scene where Sharon Stone uncrosses and recrosses her legs isn’t etched in your memory forever. Because the film may be over 20 years old, but it has sure left its mark on us. Catherine Trammel: loaded, experimental, writer, killer…? Apparently, she’s a woman of many talents.

3.Ivy (Poison Ivy, 1992)

Remember that sweet, innocent little girl from E.T.? Well, you can just forget all about her as she’s all grown up in this flick. Starring as the namesake of the film, Drew Barrymore leaves our jaws on the floor with her sinister performance and embodiment of this manipulative character.

4.Catwoman/Selina Kyle (Batman Returns, 1992)

Anne Hathaway did a fine job as Catwoman, but we think that the sexier, more seductive portrayal was pulled off by the incandescent Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns. Watch for yourself and you will see: Selina Kyle is a force to be reckoned with and you do not want to get in her way when she is in action. We’ll take one feline fatale, please…

5.Madison Lee (Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, 2003)

Need we say more than Demi Moore? The lady proves that she has still got it with her performance as the villainous Madison Lee in the modern adaptation of the classic Charlie’s Angels. While there is no shortage of lovable ladies in this flick, there is certainly no denying that the bad girl is the standout in this one.

6.Satan (Bedazzled, 2000)

Who knew that evil could look so beautiful? And who in their right mind would cast the luminous Elizabeth Hurley to play Satan? We are not entirely sure how exactly that happened but we are definitely not complaining. Tempt us. Please. We beg of you.
