25 Hottest Performances By Actresses In Sports Movies
25 Hot Actresses In Sports Movies
Let's face it, there are certain movies we see where the only endearing quality in them is the fact that a hot girl is in it.
Sports movies are no different. There are certain performances that stick with men and women for a long time to come, whether that woman gets on your "top five" or she's someone you tell your friends they have to see. These 25 actresses range from the eighties up until today.
Pictures might say a thousand words, but the videos say everything else. Go on Youtube after you pick your favorites and relive them once again. If there are any on this list that you have not seen, then you better change that soon. All of these iconic performances are one click away with the wonders of the internet.
There was much research done to try to compile the perfect list. There was a lot of work, if you want to call it that, that went into it. These 25 are the cream of the sports babe crop. There are good movies with a good-looking woman, and there are movies that would be a struggle to watch without this certain woman.
Some of the women are the most recognizable names in Hollywood, and others are one-hit wonders. They are of all shapes, but mostly the same sizes. These women have either been a part of our dreams or our first crushes. Without further ado, these are the 25 hottest performances by women in sports movies.
25. Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side
This may be a controversial choice. An older Sandra Bullock was playing Leigh Anne Tuoghy, a southern belle who had sass and a motherly charm to her. Hearing a woman talk football is a beautiful thing. It also helps that she looks good while doing it.
24. Kirsten Dunst in Bring It On
Say what you want about whether cheerleading should be considered a sport, but Kirsten Dunst undoubtedly looks quite hot as the head cheerleader for the RCH Toros. She ran around the movie trying to help her squad out, but most men were just counting the minutes until she was back at her competition -- as long as there are no spirit fingers involved. Just a clue: this movie will make another appearance.
23. Leslie Bibb in Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby
Although you hated her for how she did Ricky Bobby wrong, but Carly Bobby sure looked good while she was doing it. Played by Leslie Bibb, she parades around in very interesting outfits. Beyond the way she dresses, the way she acts is sexy in itself. Thank you dear Lord Baby Jesus.
22. Rene Russo in Major League
Major League was a great movie with an awesome cast. It was one of the funnier movies of the late 80s. Rene Russo was an added bonus. Playing Lynn Wells, her subtle sexiness is perfect for the overall brashness that is the rest of the movie.
21. Kelly Preston in Jerry Maguire
Kelly Preston played an evil person, but boy did she look sexy when she was acting that way. As Jerry's fiance, Avery Bishop seemed to play that girl we all stayed with a little too long. She didn't play the girl you take home to mom -- that was played by Renee Zellweger -- but she played the girl you take home. The scene where her and Tom Cruise had fruit in their birthday suits made you finally envy being Tom Cruise.
20. Rosie Perez in White Men Can't Jump
Rosie Perez played Woodie Harrelson's girlfriend in White Men Can't Jump. She was incredibly sexy and cute all at the same time. She seemed naive in a way. The Spike Lee joint brought us Perez as Gloria Clemente, and besides being the New York Knicks' mascot, that is his greatest contribution to this world.
19. Vanessa Angel in Kingpin
It takes a lot to get Harrelson tongue tied. Vanessa Angel does just that in Kingpin. The distraction scene where she comes out of the freezer with the tight white dress will be hard to forget. As Claudia, she brought an very sexy element to the movie.
18. Marisa Tomei in The Wrestler
The Wrestler is about "sports entertainment", but no list would be the same without Marisa Tomei's performance as a stripper for Randy 'The Ram' Robinson, played by Mickey Rourke. Cassidy, her name in the movie, showed basically everything during her act for Rourke. If you're not into wrestling, don't judge this movie because you will not regret watching it.
17. Nicole Kidman in Days Of Thunder
Nicole Kidman looked old school sexy in this movie. She was some kind of stunning before the random English accent. The scene where she claims to ignore Cruise to give a "very thorough physical" gives men chills. What happens next does something else.
16. Geena Davis in A League Of Their Own
There is just something about a woman in a sports jersey that seems so sexy. This movie is no different. Geena Davis's character did not do anything that you would typically think of as hot, but her attitude as Dottie Hinson was kind of hot on its own. There may not be crying in baseball, but how she looks in this movie has me tearing up.
15. Halle Berry in The Program
Before she was a Bond Girl, before she was Storm, even before she played Miss Stone, Halle Berry was in a David Ward movie called the Program. She played Autumn Haley, who was the love interest of Omar Epps' character Darnell Jefferson. Even the kiss scene is extra steamy in this one.
14. Kathy Ireland in Necessary Roughness
Why don't more teams use women to distract the other team? Get someone who looks like a young Kathy Ireland, and you are all set. She is stunning in this movie, especially when she is standing next to Sinbad.
13. Gabrielle Union in Bring It On
Cheering for the rival cheer squad, Garbielle Union looked fine for the inner city cheer squad. She is one of many who came out of the Bring It On franchise. She is the perfect contrast to Dunst. She is tall and dark to her short and light. It gives you something for everyone.
12. Christine Taylor in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
Mrs. Ben Stiller starts by playing Kate Veach, the bank associate who actually turns down the many advances by her husband's character White Goodman. She looked very good in the entire movie, but it was the scene that had Taylor clad in head to toe leather that put her on this list.
11. Cameron Diaz in Any Given Sunday
It may not be Cameron Diaz's sexiest performance, but it is Cameron Diaz. She played Christina Pagniacci, the mean owner of the Miami Sharks. She is based upon Jerry Jones, yet she still comes off as sexy. That is the work of a goddess.
10. Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush
Kate Bosworth plays surfer Anna Chadwick. She's already incredibly beautiful and now she has the body of a surfer. She is also hanging with fellow eye candy Michelle Rodriguez and Sanoe Lake. Bosworth is underrated in how good she looks.
9. Julie Bowen in Happy Gilmore
Most well known today for her role as the snarky mother on Modern Family, Julie Bowen played Virginia Venit, Adam Sandler's love interest. Seeing her in lingerie with two pitchers of beer is how most men fantasize. When a girl literally gives men their fantasy, they are going to be high on the list.
8. Hayden Panettiere in Bring It On: All Or Nothing
It is ironic that Hayden Panettiere started in the wonderful Remember the Titans movie. She was only around five years old in that movie. Now she is one of the hottest women in the world. The third version of Bring It On was probably not watched all too often, but she was super hot in it.
7. Ali Larter in Varsity Blues
Whipped. Cream. Bikini. Is there anything that could be sexier than that? Ali Larter may lose some points because she was trying to steal Dawson from another girl, but she sure looked crazy good. Part of me wants to put her higher, but for now she sits at no. 7.
6. Fairuza Balk in The Waterboy
There was something sexy about how different Fairuza Balk is than other women. She was someone you could not take your eyes off of. Somehow, Sandler keeps putting himself with this immaculately hot women. Balk gets on this list for looking and acting so bad.
5. Brooke Langton in The Replacements
100 percent the girl next door -- that is Brooke Langton in the Replacements. She doesn't wear anything too risque, but she carries herself in a way that makes you want to get to know her better. The scene where John Madden announces their first kiss was creepy, but you have to respect a girl that will allow that.
4. Amy Smart in Varsity Blues
I just found who beats Ali Larter in the whipped cream bikini -- that is Amy Smart in a whipped cream bikini. Even though she was second to do it, she just looked so good in it. She was beyond hot no matter what she did in the movie. She had to be to have James Vanderbeek say no to Larter.
3. Eliza Dushku in Bring It On
Even with so many hot girls in the Bring It On movies, nobody can touch how good Eliza Dushku. Rick Fox is a lucky dude. Oh, did I forget to mention there was a car wash scene in that movie?
2. Jessica Biel in Summer Catch
This is the modern day first crush. Not to long after appearing in Seventh Heaven, Jessica Biel looks crazy good in this movie that should have been better. The director knew the audience it was shooting for. I think we all would have crashed if Biel was coming out of the pool next to us too.
1. Marley Shelton in The Sandlot
We finally made it. The coup de grace. Wendy Peffercorn is every child's first love. You never wanted to be a nerd until you saw Squints steal a kiss from that incredibly sexy lifeguard. The mysterious aura of her and the fact that she was mostly gazed at from a distance only added to her appeal. Marly Shelton isn't super famous, but she will always be no. 1 in our hearts.
