20 Hot Female Athletes Who Would Make the Best Actresses
20 Hot Female Athletes Who Should Try Their Hands At Acting
I like attractive, athletic women. I also enjoy a wide range of movies and TV shows. My taste in movies includes everything from action movies to romantic comedies to horror films. Some of my favorite shows on TV right now include Person of Interest, the Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Modern Family, Revenge and the Blacklist. I also watch a variety of sports, and I am always paying attention to the sports world.
So which female athletes would I like to see on the big and/or small screen? I have put together a list of 20 female athletes (some of whom no longer play or compete) that I would enjoy seeing as actresses. Some make the list because they are fun to look at while others make the list because they are attractive and they seem to have a personality that would lend itself to acting.
Here’s the breakdown by sport:
Track & Field: 1
Beach Volleyball: 1
This is only a list of 20 women, so there are definitely some female athletes missing and not every sport is represented. There are a lot of attractive female athletes from various sports and countries, and I couldn't include all of them. Some sports have more than 20 good-looking females competitors themselves. My apologies if your favorite female athlete is not included in my list.
