Most Eye-Catching Women From Sports Movies

Even though many sports movies center around male roles, the female roles in these movies are important too. In many cases, the female leads steal the show. Whether by their acting or by catching the eyes of the audience, these 15 actresses were the most eye-catching in a major role in a sports movie.

IMDB Rating: 6.9

It's not the most recent movie on this list, but Angel certainly steals the show with her eye-catching ability. Aging hasn't done her too badly either; she still impresses on the red carpet.

14. Eliza Dushku - Bring It On

IMDB Rating: 5.9

Dushku was one of the lone bright spots in an otherwise un-noteworthy movie. It's not necessarily what you'd think of for a sports movie, but it does technically involve athletics.

13. Kate Bosworth - Blue Crush

IMDB Rating: 5.6

Again, this isn't a great flick, but Bosworth is worth the price of admission. She's surfing for the majority of the movie and that's about all you need to know.

12. Geena Davis - A League of Their Own

IMDB Rating: 7.2

In one of the most underrated sports movies, Davis turns in a good acting performance and makes girls playing baseball look cute. It was over 20 years ago, but her performance is still remembered by many.

11. Keira Knightley - Bend It Like Beckham

IMDB Rating: 6.7

One of the more noteworthy soccer movies of this generation, Bend It Like Beckham has gained quite the following. Part of the reason for that is Knightley, who has become much more famous since the movie and a lot of that has to do with her stunning good looks.

10. Kelly Preston - Jerry Maguire

IMDB Rating: 7.3

Jerry Maguire is one of the classics both as a movie in general and as a sports movie. Certainly Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr. make the movie what it is, but without Preston it wouldn't be nearly as entertaining.

9. Halle Berry - The Program

IMDB Rating: 6.4

This A-lister was once cast in this relatively unknown college football movie. Even as she ages, she looks good now, but imagine her starring in a movie 20 years ago.

8. Brooke Langton - The Replacements

IMDB Rating: 6.5

It seems to be a theme that eye-catching actresses star in not-so-good sports movies and this is another case of that. The Replacements is watchable, but without Langton it likely wouldn't be.

7. Kathy Ireland - Necessary Roughness

IMDB Rating: 6.0

Ireland isn't even the leading lady in this lackluster football flick, but still manages to impress. So her acting wasn't on full display, but that wasn't what most viewers were concerned with at the time.

6. Sandra Bullock - The Blind Side

IMDB Rating: 7.7

In this critically-acclaimed football flick, Bullock continues to make 40-somethings hate her. Even as she's crossed into being 50, she continues to dazzle both on the red carpet and on the screen of her many movies.

5. Leslie Bibb - Talladega Nights

IMDB Rating: 6.5

In the raunchy Will Ferrell-John C. Reilly comedy, Bibb was obviously the most attractive person amongst the other slobs. Even though she switches husbands during the course of the movie, she's still pretty impressive.

IMDB Rating: 6.4

Even though they were going for an authentic sports movie, Varsity Blues wasn't the greatest movie ever. However, Smart, who has starred in other movies such as "The Butterfly Effect", really steals the show.

IMDB Rating: 4.9

I'm sorry, but this movie is downright awful. The caveat is that Biel stars and it was in the early 2000's, so it still had some entertainment value to say the least.

IMDB Rating: 6.8

Diaz continues to dazzle well into her 40s and she was especially good in Any Given Sunday. While it wasn't the best football movie created, Diaz's role in it is underrated.

IMDB Rating: 6.7

One of the most hilarious movies of this generation, Dodgeball was an instant classic. As the leading lady, Taylor was especially dazzling because she plays the sport featured in the film.
