Every time we go on the Internet, there is something new trending. Maybe it is a new dance, perhaps a new popular model or actress started dating some big-shot. Maybe a politician has done something crazy, and everyone just decided to blow up and start talking about it. But the one thing that never goes out of fashion is that people on the Internet love hot guys and gals.
That is a big reason why models get as much money as they do, why sometimes subpar actors and actresses get paid a ridiculous amount of money just because they look good, and so on. Don’t get us wrong. Those are rare instances. More often than not, anyone who has reached stardom and has enough of a following to warrant millionaire contracts has worked hard and is talented enough to be where they are. But that is all besides the point.
We are talking about beautiful people. And what beautiful people are inherently better at doing than “regular people,” is seducing other folks. How many times have guys gone to the movies to watch The Avengers, hoping to see Captain America and the Hulk kick some butt, just to end up falling in love with Black Widow?
And looks are not the only part of this. There is a particular expression that some celebrities excel at portraying. Over the years that expression has become known as the come-hither look, and here are 15 celebrities who took it to a whole new level.
15 Michelle Trachtenberg
Some actresses start in show business very early as child stars. And then we have Michelle Trachtenberg. This 31-year-old actress from New York began her career at just three years old. Sure, it was a commercial for a detergent brand, but it was a start in the acting career, nonetheless.
Her first actual TV acting gig came in an episode of Law & Order back in 1991, and from there Michelle has built herself a very solid career. She is no household name, but it is hard to find someone who has not seen something she has starred in.
Even if you haven't closely followed this beautiful actress’ career, you might want to start after you look at this picture. Despite being the first entry on our list, she might just have one of the best come-hither expressions we will see today.
It might not be like the time she flashed a trucker in Euro Trip, but we will be damned if this look is not enough for you to check out whatever she stars in next.
14 April Bowlby
April Bowlby has made a career out of playing airheads on television. Her two most recognizable roles as Stacy Barrett from Drop Dead Diva and Kandi from Two and a Half Men were not exactly portrayals of empowered and brilliant women. But if there's one thing that no one can deny, it's that these characters could give some gents heart attacks.
Bowlby is about as hot as actresses get. And this picture of her sporting an exquisite come-hither look in a swimsuit should be more than enough for everyone to agree with that assertion. The only thing about her career that makes us sad is that it has been a while since we last got to watch her on television regularly. Sure, 78 episodes of Drop Dead Diva were good, but the show ended in 2014. It's about time someone gives Bowlby another shot at a main role in a TV series.
13 Angelina Jolie
It wasn’t too long ago that most of the world deemed that Angelina Jolie was the hottest woman on the globe. And this picture of the former Mrs. Brad Pitt is the absolute illustration of why more than half of the world population once agreed with that statement.
Jolie played roles that defined generations. From the first Golden Globe Award she received for her role in the film George Wallace, to her Academy Award winning performance in Girl, Interrupted. And especially for her portrayal of a video game character that guys had been fantasizing about for years before she wore the skin of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. Jolie captured the hearts of most men on Earth, and did so in a fashion that only Angelina Jolie could.
These days she is more focused on producing and directing rather than acting, but at least we will still get to see Angelina sporting her classic come-hither looks on the red carpet.
12 Katy Perry
Katy Perry is one of those celebrities you either love or hate.
Yes, Katy Perry fans are so into Katy Perry that they know more about Katy Perry than Katy Perry herself. We are aware that we might’ve said “Katy Perry” too much in that sentence, but that’s what we assumed talking to one of her super fans would be like. We have heard of crazy fans across the acting, music, and sporting worlds, but it’s hard to find a following that is as mad about their idol as the Katy Perry fans.
The love for her, however, is rightfully warranted. After all, this is a woman who earned 13 Grammy nominations and who can pull off a come-hither look like this one. Who would not want to become a Katy Kat after looking at a picture like this?
11 Ariana Grande
We will stay in the world of music for our next master of the come-hither expression. Ariana Grande is only 24 years old, but she could give any more experienced woman a run for her money when it comes to making this particular face. It just seems that this is something natural for this Boca Raton, Florida, superstar.
Sure, we have to try and forget that Ariana comes from a long tradition of Disney child stars who rose to fame in their teens. And we have to accept that these young girls grow up and naturally become mature women, just like Ariana did. What makes this a bit easier is that, as entertaining as her acting career with Disney was, Ariana’s real strength comes from her singing and subsequently from her growth into adulthood.
Skinny and sweet, with a smile that can light up a football stadium, this is one young woman who will be a star for many, many years still to come.
10 Kate Upton
Every year, we hear about an up-and-coming model who gains a lot of popularity and becomes relevant to the public eye. But it is seldom that we see a meteoric popularity rise like we saw when Kate Upton appeared to the world in 2011. She was relatively unknown outside of the modeling world, but one YouTube video was all it took for this Michigan native to become the hot topic around the world. The video of her doing the 'Dougie' at a Clippers game had millions upon millions of views, and she instantly became a star. After that, there were hardly any models as hot on social media as Upton.
She posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and then made appearances in places like Complex and Esquire. The surrounding hype slowed down a bit, but Upton is still a celebrity with around 4.8 million followers on Instagram. Followers who patiently wait for her to post a come-hither expression like this one every day.
9 Emma Watson
It is almost disturbing to put Hermione Granger on a list like this. But it is not our fault that the young girl who played the little wizard would go on to become someone as beautiful and as powerful as Emma Watson is today.
Watson is arguably one of the most influential women in the world. She was appointed as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and has been responsible for several movements advocating gender equality and other issues. The best example is her UN campaign, HeForShe.
But not to escape the topic of this list too much, while she is a powerful and serious political figure around the globe, Watson does so without ever stopping to look stunning.
As we mentioned with Ariana Grande, Watson is similar in that she went from being a young star to someone who is a borderline s*x symbol, whether she and Harry Potter, a.k.a. Daniel Radcliffe, agree with it or not.
8 Alicia Witt
Alicia Witt has played some crazy characters on television, as was the case when she played Miss Pasternak on Two and a Half Men. But that is only fair, given the fact that Alicia is so hot that she could literally make guys go crazy.
Any gentleman reading this article who claims he didn’t drool when he first saw this picture of Alicia Witt is undoubtedly lying. The fact that she is a redhead just adds to the mystique around her figure, and it surely makes her look even hotter. Another remarkable trait of Alicia's is that unlike several of the other people on this list, she makes it one of her priorities to stay busy all the time. You’ll have a hard time finding a year between 1990 and now, in which Alicia didn’t appear in either a movie or a television show. Oh yeah, did we mention she won an award at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival?
7 Laura Prepon
Laura Prepon rose to fame in the late 90s as she played a main character in That '70s Show. For her acting in that series alone, she was nominated for two Teen Choice Awards and one Youth in Film Award.
Nevertheless, ever since that enormous success, she had never really found a solid footing and another big role on television until 2013, when she was cast to play Alex Vause in the Netflix original series, Orange Is the New Black. For this project, Laura won five different awards, including two Screen Actors Guild Awards. She has also played small roles in shows like How I Met Your Mother and House.
Another interesting thing about Laura was the whole buzz that surrounded her in 2014 when it was reported that she was allegedly dating Tom Cruise. Both of them denied the rumors, but after looking at this picture, we wonder if Tom might change his mind.
6 Isla Fisher
Another redhead bombshell to grace our list, 41-year-old is Isla Fisher is a citizen of the world. This Australian actress was actually born in Oman, and both of her parents are Scottish. She only moved to Australia when she was six years old, but thank God she did. It was there that she started her acting career by playing a role in an Aussie television series named Paradise Beach. Yes, of course, an Australian series would have a name like that. Nevertheless, that was the start of an incredibly successful career.
Isla became a world-renowned actress after receiving awards and starring in movies like Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic, and The Great Gatsby. More than just an actress, Isla is also an author with three published books. Plus, there is also the fact she can make a come-hither face like this one. Now tell us, won’t you at least take a look at her upcoming 2018 film, Tag?
5 Kat Dennings
Kat Dennings has something that separates her from other successful actresses. Well, actually she has two things. And no, get your mind out of the gutter, we don’t mean what you are thinking. What we were referring to is that her mother Ellen, is a poet and her father Gerald is a molecular pharmacologist; how many other actresses have parents with those jobs?
But yeah, the two things you were thinking about before are also something that separates her from the bunch. Kat has not only been blessed with her genes but also with her ability to make people laugh. While many folks had doubts about her in the beginning, her show 2 Broke Girls, actually went on to become a huge success and survived for six seasons in the harsh world of television. Dennings also tallies credits in high grossing movies like The 40-year-old Virgin, Thor, and Thor: The Dark World.
4 Mila Kunis
To better talk about the number four entry on our list, we would have to travel all the way to Ukraine, but since a plane ticket to the former Soviet state would cost a whole lot of money, we will keep our account on Milla Kunis short.
Born in 1983 in the Soviet Union, Milena Markovna Kunis is the daughter of a physics teacher and a mechanical engineer, who moved all the way from Ukraine to Los Angeles when she was just seven years old. Her parents thought that there was no future in the Soviet Union for her and her brother, and decided to try their luck on the other side of the world. And since luck is the word, they are probably thankful for making that choice, since Kunis has become one of the most famous actresses of our time.
She hit the ground running with her role in That '70s Show, and then once that part of her career was done she focused on appearing in movies. Kunis starred in blockbusters like Black Swan, Ted, and Oz the Great and Powerful.
3 Adriana Lima
This list would not be complete without a supermodel. And what better supermodel to represent the class than Adriana Lima?
This Brazilian model out of Salvador, Bahia, has been at the top of the modeling world for more than a decade. To back up that claim, we can just mention that her April 2006 GQ cover stamped the highest selling issue of GQ for the whole year.
Even more mind-blowing, is the fact that her 2008 Super Bowl ad for Victoria’s Secret was the most watched advertisement of the game, as more than 103.7 million people watched it. Even though she has not played huge parts in movies and television, Lima has made a few appearances on shows like How I Met Your Mother, The Crazy Ones, and even Ugly Betty.
Now, in order to make this top three, one would need an amazing come-hither expression. We think Adriana excelled at this. What do you say?
2 Megan Fox
Some people say she’s past her prime, but we disagree. Individuals who look like Megan Fox are never past their prime. Megan is still 31 years old, and one look at her Instagram page is enough for everyone to realize that she's still got it. Perhaps movie studios are not so keen on signing her as they were back when she broke out onto the scene with her acting in Transformers.
Still, despite the heat she got for playing the part of April O’Neil on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, Fox seems ready to bounce back in terms of her acting career. She landed a good gig as a recurring star in the show New Girl, and is set to star in what might just be one of the most intriguing movies of this year, Zeroville. She will star alongside people like James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jacki Weaver, Danny McBride, and Will Ferrell. But something tells us that as long as at some point in the movie she makes this face, it will be a success.
1 Scarlett Johansson
Any complaints about the number one spot on our list? No? Yeah, we thought Scarlett Johansson would be a safe bet.
Scarlett Johansson has been everywhere and done everything. This is a woman who played movie parts that range anywhere from Home Alone 3’s Molly to everyone’s favorite femme fatale, Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. Black Widow. While heroes like Captain America and Iron Man always had huge followings, no comic book hero ever gained as much popularity after being portrayed by a real live actor or actress as Black Widow did when Scarlett Johansson decided to play her on the big screen.
Johansson is entertaining, and might just be the most beautiful actress in cinema today. Sure, this assertion heavily depends on everyone’s personal opinions, but the consensus you will find around the Internet, where lists are available for people to vote on the hottest actresses, is that Scar Jo reigns supreme over the competition.
Meanwhile, as it pertains to this list, her come-hither face is just like her record on the public opinion polls: Unparalleled.
