15 Guest Stars Who Were Hotter Than The Main Cast

15 Guest Stars Who Were Hotter Than The Main Cast

The world of television is full of good looking women. Part of the appeal of watching certain television shows may come from being able to check them out on a regular basis. After all, Sheldon may be funny at times, but that might not be the entire reason for the incredible success of The Big Bang Theory!

But while it’s fun to get to look at women like Jennifer Aniston, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Mila Kunis on a regular basis; it might be even more fun to look at who we have below.

These are the 15 hottest examples from when a guest star came along, often for only one episode, but looked even hotter than the other leading ladies. Some entries you may expect, but just in case you forgot that Hilary Duff had a three-way in one of her cameos, you’re very welcome for the reminder.

By the end of the list, not only will you be left amazed at the beautiful women, but you’ll also figure out which television series – with three separate entries – has the hottest guest stars of all-time.

We’ve also included fun pieces of trivia, including which Friends guest star regrets her time on the show, which actor hated kissing Jennifer Aniston, and who Jennifer Love Hewitt was knocking boots with when she appeared on Boy Meets World.

15. Hilary Duff – Gossip Girl

There are several shows, such as Two and a Half Men, that Hilary Duff makes an appearance on. But only one of those shows (to our knowledge) involve Duff getting intimate with another woman, and for that we have to give the distinction to her character in Gossip Girl. Her intimate encounter comes in season 3 included actors Penn Badgley and Jessica Szohr, but you’re probably more interested in seeing her get up close to Jessica in comparison to Penn! Duff’s character, Olivia Burke, appeared in 6 episodes.

While Duff didn’t let the world see her in her birthday suit for this role, that is the case for her current series Younger.

14. Amy Adams – The Office

There are several qualities that you may desire in a woman. For Jim Halpert, perhaps red hair is one of his because both his eventual wife, Pam, and his brief girlfriend Katy (played by Amy Adams) were redheads!

Adams first makes an appearance towards the end of the first season and sticks around until the middle of season 2, but only appears in 3 episodes. While Jenna Fischer is stunning, perhaps you’d agree that Amy Adams is even better looking.

While we’re sure you would have loved to get to see a little bit more of Adams, at least there is no shortage of roles that she has taken on since then – including some that require her acting in her birthday suit!

13. Miley Cyrus – Two And A Half Men

There are plenty of people that stopped watching the series Two and a Half Men after Charlie Sheen‘s public meltdown and exit from the series. But if you kept watching, you would at the very least have been able to check out Miley Cyrus wearing clothing that leaves very little to the imagination.

Though that was hardly the most surprising thing, especially considering the episodes were filmed back in 2012 when she was partying it up far more than she is now.

While Cyrus is focusing on her music career as of now, we’re sure it will only be a matter of time before she makes an appearance on another television series or film.

12. Denise Richards – Friends

Denise Richards is tremendous in her guest appearance in the season 7, episode 19 titled The One With Ross and Monica’s Cousin.

Despite the fact that she is in fact, Ross’ COUSIN, her good looks are too much for him to handle and he actually ends up trying to make a move on her!

Nobody could blame him for finding Denise Richards attractive, but C’mon man. At least it creates one of the funniest moments of the series after Richards stares him down following his attempt to go for a kiss.

The episode ends with the implication that Phoebe would ask her out, which we’re sure you would have been very interested in seeing play out.

11. Jessica Simpson – That ’70s Show

For a large portion of That ’70s Show, fans saw the relationship with Michael Kelso and Jackie Burkhart unfold. But when the two weren’t knocking boots, Kelso took a trip to California where he started dating the gorgeous Jessica Simpson.

The role came back in 2002 when Simpson was just starting her ascension in Hollywood and perhaps looking the best she ever has. Though it definitely doesn’t hurt that the role required her to wear a bikini.

Betty White also made an appearance during the same season (season 5 if you’re curious), but unfortunately for White, she isn’t going to be making an appearance on our list outside of this entry!

10. Jennifer Lopez – How I Met Your Mother

Jennifer Lopez is one of the best looking women in Hollywood. She definitely looks every bit as sexy as you would expect when she appeared in How I Met Your Mother.

There aren’t many characters in the history of sitcoms that took as many women to bed as Barney Stinson. But despite his success, Barney never ended up sleeping with Jennifer Lopez. Though she does try and sleep with him and it’s him that makes the decision not to take her to bed, so at least he doesn’t have Lopez as one of his failed closes.

Lopez’s brief appearance in the series came in season 5, episode 17 and was titled “Of Course”.

9. Jennifer Aniston – 30 Rock

You would be far from the only person if the most you’ve seen of Jennifer Aniston comes from her role as Rachel Green in Friends. But Aniston has worked hard to cultivate a career after leaving the series, which just so happens to have included a guest appearance on the television series 30 Rock.

While Aniston’s character gets up close and personal with Alec Baldwin, the experience was far from pleasurable for Baldwin

“It was painful. I mean, every man who’s had to make out with her in TV and movies — I don’t know how they do it.”

Yikes! Perhaps you aren’t so jealous anymore of David Schwimmer getting to kiss her on a somewhat regular basis on Friends.

8. Katy Perry – How I Met Your Mother

When you think about Katy Perry looking good, your mind may go to her many outfits that she wears when she is performing on stage. Not to mention the fact that the paparazzi seem to follow her every move. But as you can tell from the above photo, she also looks amazing when she is making a guest appearance on television.

Perry made an appearance in the season 6, episode 15 titled “Oh Honey”. That above outfit though is as racy as things get for Perry, as she doesn’t end up sleeping with anyone during her brief appearance on the series.

Perry may be easy on the eyes, but she has also lent her voice to the animated film, The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2. 

7. Elle Macpherson – Friends

Joey Tribbiani was quite the ladies man, but the hottest woman he ever brought home was definitely Elle Macpherson. Macpherson appeared in 5 different episodes throughout the 6th season of the show.

Macpherson may be a talented modelling, but acting wasn’t quite up her alley. When talking about the series, she was open about why she wishes she had not taken the role

“If I’d known how important it was in the U.S., or how long it would be on TV, I may not have chosen to do it. It was a lot of pressure if you look at it in the way that it will be around for 20 or 30 years.”

Considering the fact that I watched her episodes earlier this week, she’s definitely correct that her episodes aren’t going away anytime soon.

6. Diora Baird – Two And A Half Men

We aren’t going to blame you if you don’t recognize the name, Diora Baird. Especially in comparison to some of the gorgeous A-List stars we have on this list, she may not stand out. But you’d probably be lying if that above photo definitely doesn’t make her stand out to you.

Baird may very well be the hottest woman to waltz into the Two and a Half Men universe. Baird appeared in the season 6, episode 16 titled “She’ll Still Be Dead at Halftime” and it doesn’t take her very long before letting the audience check her out in her lingerie.

While people didn’t learn too much about her character, Wanda, they did learn she and Charlie had a three-way with a waitress a few years ago when they were in Vegas!

5. Jennifer Love Hewitt – Boy Meets World

Ready for a fun piece of trivia? Jennifer Love Hewitt was actually dating Will Friedle (who plays Eric) while they were filming her cameo in the series! We’re sure that made the scenes in the episode where they kissed all the more realistic and fun to rehearse.

JLH appeared in the season 5, episode 17 titled “And Then There Was Shawn” which was set as a horror-type episode that actually involved JLH biting the dust, but thankfully it was all just a dream.

We’re sure you were just thankful you got the chance to check out JLH! Danielle Fishel may be attractive, but you may agree with us that JLH is even hotter.

4. Eva Longoria – Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the best shows on television. Two of their leading females, Stephanie Beatriz (who plays Rosa) and Melissa Fumero (who plays Amy) are both incredibly beautiful, but they may not hold a candle in your eyes to Eva Longoria.

While her role as a defense attorney didn’t lead to too many revealing outfits, it’s still clear why Eva is deserving of a spot on this list. We’re sure the above two women won’t take it too personally, or at least we hope so because Rosa at the very least in terrifying!

Due in part to her relationship with Andy Samberg‘s character (Jake Peralta), Longoria ended up appearing in 4 episodes during season 2.

3. Heidi Klum – Parks And Recreation

There is no denying that women like Aubrey Plaza, Amy Poehler, and Rashida Jones aren’t attractive, but Heidi Klum is literally considered one of the sexiest women to ever exist for a reason.

Klum made an appearance during the season 6 story arc that finds Leslie (played by Amy Poehler) taking a trip to London. While Klum may be comfortable on a runway and appearing in lingerie, she is also no stranger to lending her good looks to various television shows including the series Desperate Housewives, How I Met Your Mother and Sex and the City. Parks and Recreation also has a fantastic cameo from another beautiful blonde, Kristen Bell.

2. Teri Hatcher – Seinfeld

If we’re being fair, the only main female that Seinfeld offers is Julia Louis-Dreyfus. And even though Louis-Dreyfus is gorgeous, the entire episode The Implant is centered around her and Jerry discussing how gorgeous (and in particular, how perfect two certain assets) are of the next entry on our list, Teri Hatcher.

On top of discussing her good looks, Jerry and Elaine also debate on if her breasts are real or not. While Jerry ends up failing to seal the deal with Hatcher, as she is leaving the episode she says, “They’re real, and they’re spectacular!”

Hatcher also made an appearance in the series finale.

1. Britney Spears – How I Met Your Mother

You’ve done it! Of all the television shows out there, at least according to our research, no show has had as many attractive guest stars as How I Met Your Mother. But unlike Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez, Barney actually sleeps with Spears‘ character!

Spears made two appearances in the series, both during season 3. While there are other television shows that she has appeared in, such as Glee, you may agree with us that the outfit she wears above is hard to beat.

Want to know just how good looking the women of How I Met Your Mother are? Outside of the 3, we also had to leave off stunning A-Listers like Carrie Underwood, Ashley Benson and Laura Prepon!
