One of the biggest entertainment enterprises in the world, the Hollywood machine puts out many movies each and every year and makes a difference in the lives of millions. On top of that, in recent years, the independent movie scene has gained more and more steam and created a great deal of content as well. As a result of these facts, there is more of a need for movie stars today than ever before. Still, there are some actresses that have risen above the rest, both in terms of fame and looks. Realizing that is what inspired us to put together this list of the twenty steamiest photos of today’s biggest movie stars.
When it comes to the photos we’ve chosen for this list, the only prerequisite was that one of the female stars of today’s movie scene can be seen and looks great. That means that the inclusion of people who haven’t given a major performance in a movie will have zero effect on the placement of a photograph on this list. For our purposes, we put a premium on actresses that have been a part of several successful films of late but as long as they’ve starred in a film that did well in recent years, they were in the running. Of course, there will not be anyone on this list who isn’t over the age of eighteen at the time of this writing. In order to ensure variety in this list, we’ve opted to include only one image of any given star as well. So, without any further ado, let’s get to the list.
20 Anna Kendrick
One of the most likable Hollywood stars around, Anna Kendrick has put together a very impressive career even though it can fly under the radar at times. A part of many films that were successes at the box office, her filmography includes titles like the Twilight and Pitch Perfect franchises, as well as Into the Woods and The Accountant. On top of those movies, she has also given stellar performances in a more independent fare like her Oscar-nominated work in Up in the Air as well as 50/50, ParaNorman, Drinking Buddies, The Hollars, and Table 19. Also a phenomenal presence on social media which is where this image originates from, this shot of her looking like an angelic beauty, who also happens to have nice cleavage, is incredible.
19 Emma Watson
We’re not quite sure what it’s going to take for Emma Watson to escape the shadow of the Harry Potter movies but she has been in a lot since then. In fact, of the three leads of that franchise, she has done the most, including respected films like The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Bling Ring, while also proving that she has a sense of humor in This is the End. Of course, she also was the lead in a gigantic hit earlier this year as well, the live action version of Beauty and the Beast that made 1.26 billion dollars at the box office. A picture of her from an angle we don’t typically see, this shot of her at Cannes from 2002 gives a vantage point of her booty that blows us away.
18 Kristen Wiig
First coming to prominence when she became a standout member of the Saturday Night Live cast, it didn’t take too long for Kristen Wiig to make the leap to the film industry. Truly cemented as a star in that world with the critical and financial success of Bridesmaids, which she also co-wrote, it was a watershed moment in her already impressive career. Since then, she has appeared in several movies a year including hits like the Despicable Me franchise, How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Martian, Sausage Party, and too many others to list here. Sporting an amusing look on her face here that is totally in line with the image she has crafted for herself, this picture also shows off the vast majority of her body.
17 Reese Witherspoon
An actress whose performance in the movie Election made a huge impact, Reese Witherspoon had already given several amazing performances at that time, but that changed things for her. Released in 1999, since that time, she has proven time and time again that she can be depended upon to act in any genre of film to positive results. Memorable in films like Cruel Intentions, Legally Blonde, Sweet Home Alabama, Walk the Line, and many more, in the last few years, she has also worked in other movies that were beloved and award-winning. A photo of her in which she isn’t showing off very much skin and isn’t posed in an alluring fashion, the thing that gets to us in this picture is the confident look on her face, which says that she is hot and knows it.
16 Morena Baccarin
There is no doubt about it, up until recently, that Morena Baccarin was best known as a television actress. Not that there is anything wrong with that, though. One of the stars of Firefly and its film spin-off, Serenity, that is one of the most beloved series ever. Then, she showed up in other sci-fi series like Stargate SG-1 and V and was one of the stars of the highly acclaimed show Homeland as well. When she was cast as the female lead in the movie Deadpool, which was one of 2016’s biggest hits, her film star credentials were solidified, especially since she will be in the sequel too. Absolutely smoldering in this shot where she is staring into the camera, the view of her cleavage is great as is the opportunity to admire at least some of her legs.
15 Blake Lively
Not too long ago, the consensus among many when it came to Blake Lively seemed to be that she is a gorgeous woman who had yet to give a performance that will blow people away. Up until recently, she was known for her role as one of the leads of the series Gossip Girl and movies like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, The Town, Green Lantern, and Savages. Then, she starred in the film The Shallows last year, which relied almost entirely on her acting skills and the special effects team and was a huge hit since it made more than ten times its budget back. Looking incredible in that film as well, this image of her was taken while she was on set and reveals that she has one of the best bodies in Hollywood.
14 Natalie Portman
Introduced to the world when she gave a breathtaking performance in the movie Léon: The Professional, a young Natalie Portman was a child but seemed mature beyond her years. Consistently employed since then, she was one of the stars of the Star Wars prequels and a long list of movies like the Thor series, Garden State, V for Vendetta, Black Swan, and Closer, to name a sampling. Seen here when she was on the set of her yet-to-be released Terrence Malick movie, Song to Song, he makes gorgeous films and Natalie looks like she would fit in a venture like that. Wearing pants that are very tight and a top that shows off her cleavage, we’ve always thought she was a beautiful woman but she is outdoing herself here.
13 Sandra Bullock
One of the most popular actresses around, despite a few bombs, for the most part, Sandra Bullock seems to have the Midas touch when it comes to the movies she decides to star in. In fact, the list of her hit films seems to be endless and includes the likes of Speed, Miss Congeniality, Crash, The Proposal, The Blind Side, and Gravity. Also someone that has had an acclaimed career as well, her hypothetical mantle could feature an Oscar, a Golden Globe Award, SAG Awards, MTV Movie Awards, People’s Choice Awards, and many more. Laying on her side in this shot, she looks like she could seduce practically anyone considering that we get to appreciate her legs, slightly covered midriff, and more, all of which looks fantastic.
12 Zoe Saldana
If there is one thing we’d love to make Hollywood understand, it is that Zoe Saldana has done a great job in movies where her skin is many colors, but we’d love to see her natural form more often. After all, we haven’t seen her great skin in some of her biggest films, including the Guardians of the Galaxy series, Avatar, and her upcoming Avengers movies. At least we can always check her out in the Star Trek franchise, Live by Night, as well as Colombiana, and who wouldn’t want to check out this beautiful woman? Case, in point, in this shot of her, she allowed the world to see some of her ravishing body while also teasing us with the tantalizing idea of getting to see more.
11 Julia Roberts
One of the biggest stars in Hollywood history, Julia Roberts was called America’s Sweetheart for many years for good reason, as audiences constantly made it clear that they loved seeing her on the big screen. Possessing a career that featured hit movies in every decade since the eighties, she starred in huge flicks like Pretty Woman, Hook, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Notting Hill, and the Ocean’s franchise of films. Of course, that is to say nothing of her award-winning films like Erin Brockovich, Charlie Wilson’s War, August: Osage County, Closer, and Steel Magnolias. An exquisite beauty as well as a talented actress, over the years, she hasn’t appeared in many salacious photos. But this one where it seems like she has nothing on under that housecoat drives us wild.
10 Dakota Johnson
A part of Hollywood royalty, Dakota Johnson is the granddaughter of Tippi Hedren, and her parents are Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, the latter of which meant that Antonio Banderas was her stepdad. As such, it seems like success in the acting world was in her blood which makes sense since she landed a role that made her a star overnight—Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey. Returning to that role in one film already and another that is set to be released, these films may be loathed by some but they have a loyal and rabid fan base as well. Playing a somewhat unassuming woman in the series who is also very attractive, this image proves why she is perfect for the role as she looks great here, as do her legs, but she still looks a little bit unsure too.
9 Emily Blunt
If you are anything like us, when Emily Blunt first entered the acting scene with films like The Devil Wears Prada and The Young Victoria, you thought she was great but not a huge star in the making. Oh, how wrong we were. Since then proving herself again and again with movies like Looper, Edge of Tomorrow, Into the Woods, The Adjustment Bureau, and Sicario, it seems like any role she gets will be knocked out of the park. Now, when we see her name on a movie poster or IMDb list, our interest is instantly stoked since she’s likely to be amazing at the very least. Wearing a purple top with purple in her hair here, those parts of this image are eye-grabbing but we’d be lying if we tried to pretend that it isn’t the view of her chest here that we really love.
8 Gal Gadot
Proof positive of what a difference a single role can make, not too long ago, Gal Gadot was known as one of the backup players in the Fast and Furious series. Then, she was cast as one of the most recognizable superheroes around and everything changed even though news of her involvement initially resulted in anger from many observers. Appearing as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, she had to compete for screen time with two of the biggest superheroes ever and managed to steal the spotlight away from them. Going on to star in her own film, to date, it is the best-received film in the DC Extended Universe franchise. A huge deal today, we hope that results in more pictures like this one where her personality seems winning and her body, especially her booty, are even more appealing.
7 Deepika Padukone
An Indian actress that has done it all in her homeland’s film industry, Deepika Padukone is one of the most recognizable faces where she comes from. Most notable for movies like Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Love Aaj Kal, and Piku, those titles may not be recognizable in your continents, but trust us, they were a big deal. Also a highly respected actress in her own right, she has taken home many trophies with names like Filmfare Awards, International Indian Film Academy Awards, NDTV Indian of the Year, and too many more to list. Shot from behind in this image, it should come as no surprise that we love the view of her derriere but we also are really attracted to the slicked back look of her hair.
6 Margot Robbie
A couple of entries ago, we looked at the career of Gal Gadot and reflected on her ability to rise above even when sharing a film with massive personalities, which should ring a bell for Margot Robbie. Also the star of a DC Extended Universe film, it was a previous movie of hers, The Wolf of Wall Street, that she ran away with despite costarring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. These days best known for her beloved work as Harley Quinn, Suicide Squad got mixed reviews by fans and critics, but her work in it has been nearly universally embraced. Dressed in a simple top and her underwear in this image that was taken in her own home, we love the idea of entering her private world as well getting to check out her derriere in this state.
5 Jennifer Lawrence
An actress that has been at or near the top of Hollywood for years, Jennifer Lawrence has been in several huge movies, including the Hunger Games and X-Men film franchises. On top of that, she has also received an incredible amount of acclaim including winning an Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook and being nominated for Winter’s Bone, American Hustle, and Joy. If we put this list together a couple of years ago, Jennifer Lawrence would be taking the top spot. But after X-Men: Apocalypse and Passengers got mixed results, her career is slightly less than before. That is why we find it funny that we were so attracted to this image of her from the latter of those films that weren’t boons to her career. Despite that, her swimsuit in it really accentuates the best parts of her body.
4 Daisy Ridley
An actress that is very much on the rise, Daisy Ridley was tapped to appear in the upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic book, Murder on the Orient Express, and many more major movies. Of course, her biggest contribution to the film world as of yet is as Rey from the Star Wars franchise since that is such a colossally important franchise so it seems hard to imagine that she will exceed that role soon. That said, she shouldn’t be upset in the slightest that she can’t eclipse that role as it is beloved by millions and also gives girls and young women someone to look up to. Seen in a very sultry image here, we love the steamy look on her face in this shot and the way that her dress hints at her figure underneath in a very tantalizing way.
3 Jennifer Aniston
One of the stars of the sitcom Friends, the entire cast of that series became a huge deal at the time, but it is only Jennifer Aniston that has managed to stay at the top of the celebrity food chain since. Able to become a massive film star, she has starred in major movies like Bruce Almighty, the Horrible Bosses movies, We’re the Millers, Cake, and many more. Unfortunately, as of late, she hasn’t had any gigantic hits as Storks, Mother’s Day, and Office Christmas Party didn’t get the job done. However, despite all that, she has such a loyal fan base that her career hasn’t been hindered much. Seen here in a one-piece outfit that really draws the viewers’ attention to her cleavage and legs, those are wonderful aspects of her body to focus in on.
2 Charlize Theron
When Charlize Theron first came to prominence as an actress, she was best known as her dramatic chops in films like The Devil’s Advocate, The Cider House Rules, and Monster. As of late, however, she has also shown that she can be pretty bada*s too with her roles in Mad Max: Fury Road, Atomic Blonde, and The Fate of the Furious. A blond beauty that is one of the biggest film stars in the world right now, she is also so hot that it seems clear that she could have been equally as successful had she instead attempted to be a model. Seen in this photo that is a great example of why we believe that, in it, she looks fantastic in every way, as she always does. But the opportunity it gives to sit in awe of her long and lovely legs is amazing.
1 Scarlett Johansson
Another star that started out in the dramatic side of things in Hollywood, Scarlett Johansson came to prominence because of roles in movies like Ghost World, Lost in Translation, and Match Point. Able to become a key part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is the most successful film franchise of all time, it is now hard to imagine what it would be like without her work as The Black Widow. If that weren’t enough, which it clearly is, she has also starred in other successful films like Her, Lucy, The Jungle Book, Sing, and several others. Another shot on this list that really focuses on the legs of a gorgeous woman, this shot beat out the previous one of us because it also puts her incredible chest in the spotlight.
