Women really do rule the world . . . one movie at a time.
Actresses with brains and beauty are like box-office gold. Margot Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence, and Halle Berry are very successful because of their smoldering appearances and acting abilities on-screen. Their fans keep coming back for more. These fans want to watch quality performances by beautiful women. Who can blame them? The women are both beautiful and talented, but they're also people.
They're human beings flawed and scarred, and they're no different than you or me.
Newsflash: Actresses are different than the characters they portray. Is Robbie really like Harley Quinn? No. Is Lawrence really like Rosalyn Rosenfeld? No. Is Berry really like Frankie? No.
However, they still have entire fandoms based off their characters, and their fans can lose sight of who the actresses are as human beings; a few fans have even become borderline obsessed.
Even singers have their stalkers. Taylor Swift had a frightening experience with an unknown man. "A man showed up unannounced at this singer's mansion in Westerly, Rhode Island, on July 6, 2016. The guy was crying and saying he was scheduled to see Taylor and marry her! But her security team intervened and called police, who took the would-be groom to a hospital for mental evaluation," an article relays.
The women are unlike the personas they portray. Certain actresses who play steamy roles in television usually have more in common with the convent than their roles. Here's a list of the fifteen actresses who may play freaks, but only while the cameras are rolling.
15 Margot Robbie's No Princess
Margot Robbie may play temptresses on the big screen, but she's no princess. She's a strong independent woman who can pack a punch. When she was auditioning for the part of Leonardo DiCaprio's wife in The Wolf of Wall Street, she accidentally slapped the actor on set.
She was really heated when he was taunting her as Jordan Belfort, so she hit him in response. "I hit him in the face. And then I scream, 'F--- you!' And that's not in the script at all. The room just went dead silent and I froze," she recalls.
Unlike Robbie's character, she went against conventional sex appeal in lieu of unorthodox strength. She made a lasting impression on the famous actor and his favorite director Martin Scorsese. She was hired.
14 Amber Rose: A Bedroom Bookworm
Amber Rose was a former stripper and video vixen, and then she met her baby daddy Wiz Khalifa, a rapper known for his marijuana and music. They got married and gave birth to their son Sebastian. But they divorced a few years later. The self-proclaimed "bad b*tch" was officially single, but she wanted to quiet the rumors; she's not the woman people have pictured. She's a bedroom bookworm.
"I feel like I'm just such a nerd in the bedroom. I'm really just a normal girl," she says.
13 Jessica Simpson's Not Your Average Chicken
Jessica Simpson was known for being a blonde bombshell, but she was known for being scatterbrained, too. When she made that "chicken of the sea" comment, her fans had lost hope for the businesswoman. They just thought she was a brainless boob.
Uh, no. She has a net worth of $150 million and she's making money without the help of press and paparazzi. Aside from her financial profits, she's also stuck to her personal values.
According to Simpson, she made the choice to wait until her wedding day to do the deed. "Simpson married Lachey, maintaining her good-girl image by sharing that she saved her virginity until her wedding day," an article relays.
Her cameos usually showed the woman flaunting her assets, but she was conservative outside of the entertainment realm. Who knew?
12 A Beyoncé Among Women
Beyoncé Knowles is one of the most influential women of the 21st century, and she's an inspiration to millions and millions of people worldwide.
Her beauty, ferocity, and talent are the driving forces behind her popularity. However, her marriage to mogul Jay-Z is another reason why she's so prominent in the music industry. They're the power couple everyone either envied or applauded, but their love for each other's awe-inspiring.
They met in 2001, and they've been together since then. Beyoncé may be considered a sex symbol in her music videos, but she's more than her image. She's a wife and mother first, and she'll be welcoming twins in 2017. Her family's almost complete.
11 Jessica Alba's The Girl Next Door
Jessica Alba is like the girl next door in Hollywood, and her movies usually center on sex, love, and relationships. She's not just an actress, though. She's just another businesswoman, wife, and mother. She takes her careers very seriously. "I have a really strong team at the Honest Company and my partners are incredible, so if I didn't have them to run the business when I'm not there I'd be in trouble," she says of her company.
Her jobs outside of the home can complicate raising a family, but she's working for her daughters. She wants them to follow by example. "I'm much more practice over preaching and I think that leaves a bigger impact," she said of her parenting techniques.
Even though Alba began her career in the entertainment industry, she's also known for her accomplishments outside of television and film. She's not the characters she's projected to be. She saves the simmer for the set.
10 Nicki Minaj's Vow
Did Nicki Minaj recite a vow of celibacy? Probably not.
However, she's very clear about where she stands in the dating realm. She may brag about her sexual prowess in her songs, but Nicki Minaj and Onika Maraj are two very different women. With a couple breakups under her belt, the rapper is sick of men, in general. They're way too complicated. She just wants to have fun, and she could care less about the politics of love and relationships. "I don't date guys. I hang out with my girls. They're sexier, anyway, and they're more fun, and they're less needy," she said.
Has her opinion changed? Who knows. The millionaire went through a public rift from her former beau Meek Mill, and she's still recovering from the heartbreak.
9 Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance'
Lady Gaga's music videos for Marry the Night, Love Game, and You and I have been suggestive at best. While her fans praise her for her openness about love and sex, her critics bash her for her liberated persona. They should know Lady Gaga is just a moniker for Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, the woman behind the heavy eyeliner and face glitter, not to mention award-winning albums.
She's the type of woman who couldn't live without pasta, Iron Maiden, or Bugs Bunny. She's also the type of woman who couldn't live without love.
Her heart's gotten her into trouble. "I think women love very hard. We love men. We just love with everything we have. Some-times I don't know that that love is met with the type of dignity that we wish it would be met with," she says.
Hopefully, the musician will find her soulmate without any more bad romances.
8 Kylie Jenner's Eye Of The Tyga
Does Kylie Jenner really need an introduction? She's an heiress to the Kardashian and Jenner empires, her brother-in-law's Kanye West, and she's monetized her controversial pout. So when will she make her first billion? Probably in a few years. Even though she's a bona fide doyenne in the makeup industry, she's still bullied and belittled by her haters.
Is she in business or in high school? When the woman was dating Tyga, she received intense hate. Derogatory comments about her and Tyga's romance were dished, and she was judged for her supposed sex life with the rapper. She remained undeterred, though.
"The more people love you, the more there's going to be people that hate you," she says. She and her boyfriend are still in a relationship, and they seem to still be in their honeymoon phase. Her man even bought her a diamond ring. She may have her eyes on her shiny rock, but she could care less about the materials. She only has eyes for Tyga.
7 Paula Patton Is Picky
She and their son had to leave the toxicity, but the split wasn't easy. "I was very in love," she said of her first marriage. She met her ex in high school, and they were each other's first love. They had spent over twenty years together, and they were married for nine of them.
She was very unhappy in the marriage, though. She needed to leave Thicke in the hopes of a fresh start. She's optimistic about the future. "I love to love and I believe in love," she says.
6 Kate Hudson's Kissing Conundrum
Kate Hudson starred in romantic comedies aplenty, and she was always dubbed as the hot blonde. She's still gorgeous both inside and out. However, she doesn't let the hype get to her head. She's always been honest about whom she is as a person.
According to an article, the actress admits how her priorities have changed. "There are a lot of gossips who like to think that I'm a [kisser], but I'm pretty prudish. I need to find that 18-year-old in me again, who was way more adventurous when it came to kissing boys. I'm not really like that anymore," she admitted.
5 Mariah Carey's Heart-to-Heart
Well, she's beautiful, sultry, bossy, and a moneymaker. Eminem shouldn't be too offended, though. Her fans across the globe are just as zealous. She may simmer on-screen, but people shouldn't listen to the hearsay. She's the epitome of an independent woman, so she knows what she likes and dislikes. While she may seduce a tech supervisor to touch her body, she's just teasing. Her performance is just for show, but her private affairs leave much to the imagination.
"I end up being very flirtatious, and people take it the wrong way. I'm very much a prude," she asserts. Carey may have a net worth close to Donald Trump's (an exaggeration, I know), but she's not about to grab men by their balls. She knows her worth.
4 Tina Fey's Revealing Interview
In an interview with David Letterman, she talked about her own romantic endeavors (or lack thereof). "That's just good, Christian values, or, being homely," she joked of her abstinence. Fey is the total package, so she waited for her total package of a man. She found him when she was in her twenties. The then 24-year-old actress married the 30 Rock director, Jeff Richmond, and they've been on plenty of dates ever since. However, they've never been on a date with dangerous criminals trying to kill them. Thank goodness for the small favors.
3 Carrie Underwood's Chastity
Carrie Underwood is primarily a country singer, but she's also made cameo appearances in television and film. Her most notable roles were on American Idol and Soul Surfer. She made a profit from her commercial successes in the arts. However, her priorities extend beyond the limelight and into the home. She's a wife and mother now, and her dream is to raise a wonderful family. When her children are older, she'll have a remarkable testament about true love's kiss, literally.
According to an article, she "waited to have sex until she married Mike Fisher in 2010."
They've been married for about seven years. However, in Hollywood years, they've been married for a lifetime. Hopefully, they'll celebrate many more anniversaries to come. People need Underwood's passionate love songs, after all.
2 Julianne Hough's 'Special'
Julianne Hough is the typical blonde hair, blue-eyed Jill of all trades. She can sing, dance, act, and smolder on television screens and theater projectors. She may be 5'3", but she's a towering force in the entertainment industry. Her fans may think she's just another Hollywood actress, but she has more talent than people realize, and she's a different person off-camera.
Love and sex are beautiful experiences, especially when the two coalesce. While people choose to partake in premarital sex, others choose to wait until marriage. There's nothing wrong with either choice, and Hough is proud of her own choices in sex and sexuality. "I want to be with that special person," she said.
1 Meagan Good
The beautiful and talented actress Meagan Good stays true to her last name. While the definition of a good girl is different for everybody everywhere, Good is good because she's content with her choices as an independent woman. She won't settle and she won't shy away from hard work.
As a self-proclaimed virgin, she had to really work hard at abstinence, and her decision was tough to commit. "It was very tough. It's interesting because I think it was harder for me," the woman said of her abstinence. She and her husband DeVon Franklin were waiting until marriage to have sex. The wait was difficult for the pair, but they were happy about their decision. Their love was worth the wait.
