We have ghosts, we have vampires, we have snakes, and zombies and evil little girls! What does that mean? Halloween is near! But let’s not forget the most popular Halloween costume in history: Witches! Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to welcome it than to prove that not all witches have to be unappealing? If you think about it, it makes more sense for them to be attractive. Especially if they are malicious. Because it’s a lot easier for evil to do its thing and persuade its victims if it is attractive. This may seem crazy, but it’s true. Who are you more likely to get manipulated by, an old hag or a beautiful young woman? Exactly!
So that’s why we need to take a look at the attractive witches rather than the ones that are just “good” at being witches. Because, if you were a witch, wouldn’t you choose to be hot and appealing? That will get the most work done. We all know that attractive people get their way more often than unattractive people. Take the Wicked Witch of the West for instance. She may do a good job of intimidating Dorothy, but what about Glinda? Dorothy did whatever she said, without question. Why? Because she didn’t look intimidating, she looked approachable and was easy on the eyes. So let’s give a shout out to this witch eye candy in honor of Halloween! Let the witchcraft…commence!
15 Bonnie Bennett - The Vampire Diaries
With all those hot vampires in The Vampire Diaries, it’s easy to underestimate the witches as well. For one, this witch is one of the most powerful females in the Vampire Diaries universe. And she's definitely in the running for the most powerful witches. She is very likeable, relatable, helpful, and just a really fantastic “good witch.” On top of that, she’s extremely strong, even surprising herself on more than one occasion.
This lady has been an anchor, a ghost, a huntress, and just a bomb witch. And every time she looks pretty amazing, doesn’t she? Is it possible for the cast of Vampire Diaries to get any hotter than it already is? Seriously! Probably not, but that’s in part because it has one of the most attractive witches around. And that's because she’s played by Kat Graham, who was crazy hot in Addicted, epic hot in Honey 2, and adorable hot in 17 Again.
14 Samantha Stephens - Bewitched
Known as the first “good witch” to grace television, Samantha was one of a kind. She was beautiful, talented, and absolutely adorable. Her nose twitch was almost too much to take! For a witch in the 60s, she fared pretty well for herself. Elizabeth Montgomery wasn’t the biggest star in the world, but she competed with Barbara Eden as Jeannie. This was a feat in itself. Men would have debates over who was more attractive, Jeannie or Samantha, and it was generally a toss-up. Samantha was intelligent and sophisticated, though, something Jeannie lacked.
Both were blonde bombshells, however, and no one could argue with the fact that Samantha Stephens was the hottest witch that the 60s and 70s had ever seen. Every man wanted her and every woman wanted to be her, and that’s exactly how “hot” characters are meant to be portrayed. You know that the character is good when you achieve this, just like Samantha did.
13 The Halliwell Sisters - Charmed
These sisters might just be the absolute hottest witches in the history of movies, books, television, and beyond. If a teen boy said he watched Charmed 'cause he liked the storyline, he was lying. They all watched it because they had a favorite sister. Maybe it was Prue, maybe it was Piper, or likely…Phoebe. But there’s a chance it could have even been Paige. The point is, a good majority of viewers were simply attracted to the sisters and little more. Even though there was a good story that was captivating and made you really want to see the next episode, the sisters really made the series.
But it wasn’t just their looks, it was their powers as well. You may have liked Prue’s telekinetic powers or awesome astral rays. You could have been attached to molecular powers that seemed to freeze time as she can control almost everything made up of molecules…so everything. Then there’s Phoebe who actually does have power of time, past, present and future. Not to mention her great empathy. And last but not least is Paige, the newest member has an array of powers, including the amazingly useful teleportation.
12 Sally and Gillian - Practical Magic
Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman were the perfect choices for these roles. They are both down-to-earth, intelligent, and just as sexy as any brainless bombshell out there. The movie is a bit more light-hearted and comical than most witch movies, which is a nice change. Rather than the cover girl beauties like Angelia Jolie and Mila Kunis, it stars the “natural” beauties like Sandra and Nicole. Not that the others aren't natural, but it seems these ladies tend to stick to the natural look no matter what.
The plot here is hilarious. The sisters have different personalities, yet get along perfectly for the most part. One of the women gets into an abusive relationship, another kills her own husband…yeah, that kind of crazy. The movie has become a classic, and a good part of this reason is the amazing acting of the two “sisters” as well as their steamy images.
11 Faye Chamberlain - Secret Circle
Probably the hottest, most intelligent Secret Circle witch would be Faye Chamberlain. However, she’s also the most selfish and reckless. Somehow this works for her, unfortunately. But behind her arrogant, self-serving attitude is someone entirely different, someone you want to get to know. She can be kind, caring, and thoughtful. This doesn’t show often, but it is there. But in the end, not many people are, because while others in the circle may have more compassion, Faye is somehow more appealing and has the most natural beauty.
But then there’s those guys who actually like the devil may care attitude and think Faye is the most perfect thing to ever grace television. So it’s all a matter of opinion. Except for Faye’s natural attractiveness, that’s just a fact. Phoebe Tonkin who plays Faye is beautiful. Faye Chamberlain is hot.
10 Sabrina Spellman - Sabrina The Teenage Witch
Melissa Joan Hart was likely the first teen witch to become a household name. And why wouldn’t she be, she was Sabrina the Teenage Witch! It’s kind of self-explanatory. You don’t see her around much these days, but she made her mark on the world with that one show. Melissa didn’t make a lot of “hottest” lists, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t do her thing and do it well. She was the girl next door, the natural witch. She wanted to live a normal teen life with the perks of being a witch.
More than a handful of people had a huge crush on her, and an even bigger amount had a passing crush. So in the end, everyone who was attracted to women had a crush on her at some point in their life. It wasn’t a dreamy Charmed crush, it was more of a natural high school crush. But it was every bit as impactful.
9 Sukie Ridgemont - Witches Of Eastwick
Michelle Pfeiffer is one of the most iconic witches in history, likely because she’s played one on more than one occasion. In 2007, she played an old witch in Stardust who used malicious means to keep herself young looking. But it was her role alongside Cher and Susan Sarandon that really made her stand out. Her crazy hair and silly relationship with the other two made for a one of a kind movie. But it’s not just her looks that make her our favorite Eastwick witch. But her sweet, calm personality with a bit of…something hiding behind it.
Michelle Pfeiffer is known for playing sexy roles such as Catwoman, Elvira, and Velma Von Tussle. Plus, she has this uncanny ability to look younger than she is. Would you have guessed her to be 60 years old next year? Didn’t think so. I guess witches don’t age the same as humans.
8 Queen Ravenna - Snow White And The Hunstman
Here we go again with another beautiful actress making witches cool again…or great again. She played Queen Ravenna in Snow White and the Huntsman, and boy did she do a great job. Historically, the Evil Queen is supposed to be attractive because she had always been the most beautiful woman, until her stepsister took that away from her.
So, it makes sense that they chose a beautiful actress to play her. But in my opinion, she wins out over Snow White in this one. Kristen Stewart is fine, but I think Charlize Theron's character won out on this one. In my opinion, Queen Ravenna is what the Ice Queen in Chronicles of Narnia would look like if she were meant to be more stunningly beautiful and natural. So I’m glad we get to see Charlize Theron show us this image in this Snow White adaption.
7 Hermione Granger - Harry Potter
Emma Watson is the beauty of the 2010s. She just recently started playing in “adult” roles (no, not those kind). As in, she hasn’t been playing high school students. Today, the majority of people, if not all people, love Emma Watson, but where did it all start? We all know the answer is as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series. In the first movie, she was just eleven years old, and was not hot at all. She was adorable, but she was just a kid. By the third movie, she was really starting to blossom into a young woman at the age of 14. But by the last movie, at 21 years old, she was a full-fledged adult and was seen as the Hermione we know and love today.
It’s a precious gift, and although she keeps it PG, that doesn’t mean we love her any less, if not more for being able to keep it so clean and at the same time being just as beautiful as any other star in R-Rated films.
6 Glinda - Oz, The Great And Powerful
Glinda from the original Wizard of Oz was alright for her time, but she wasn’t meant to be attractive in that way. As for Glinda from Oz, The Great and Powerful, well that’s a different story. She’s played by Michelle Williams and is James Franco’s choice over Mila Kunis. So that alone should tell you something. I mean, how hot do you have to be to be chosen rather than Mila Kunis? Geez. He even turned her into a green bundle of a jealous rage…how rude.
But it makes sense, for Glinda is indeed extremely kind and compassionate, but also determined and intelligent. Plus, she is originally seen as the “wicked witch” until the others set the record straight. At the time, Theodora wasn’t evil, but rather it was Evanora that was manipulating everyone. Theodora still had a chance…but in the end it was Glinda that won everything. Daddy’s favorite, Oscar’s choice, queen of the land…she had everything.
5 Theodora - Oz, The Great And Powerful
Before she was the Wicked Witch of the West, she was just Glinda’s sister, Theodora. This wasn’t a thing in Wizard of Oz, but Mila Kunis sure made it a thing in Oz, the Great and Powerful. She was beautiful, just as Mila Kunis always is. Funny enough, seeing her transformation was touching, and then sad. We can understand why she became the Wicked Witch, and this makes us connect to her like never before. But that’s not the point right now. The point is, she makes witches look good.
But obviously not as good as Glinda because Oscar choosing Glinda over her was what really sent her over the edge, turned her skin green, and made her…almost ugly. It was quite the feat to make Mila Kunis look ugly, but with the power of a self-centered, inconsiderate jerk of a man, anything is possible. So let’s just take a look at her before a man entered into her life and messed things up.
4 Maleficent - Maleficent
In the cartoon, Maleficent is less than mediocre. But in the live-action remake, she is looking great. The entire story is so inspiring and really makes us love her. She isn’t an evil witch, born into maliciousness. In fact, even after she was called “evil” she still made pure, heart-felt choices out of love, for she loved Aurora. Somehow, her mix of bad and good made her all that much more appealing. She hated the king for breaking her heart and taking her wings, so she wanted revenge.
She was once a beautiful young fairy, but again, an inconsiderate man with the ability to be kind took that away. She was turned into a witch, riding the fence between good and evil. The movie is sad, joyful, and every other emotional roller coaster stop you could make. And throughout the whole thing, Maleficent is absolutely stunning, or should we say Angelina Jolie is?
3 Morticia Addams -The Addams Family
Now, Morticia isn’t that “perfect” beauty that you see on the cover of magazines, but she really does have something special. I mean, her and Gomez have one of the most beautiful relationships in the world, and you know why. They both love each other dearly and it shows. She has that amazing balance of good and this kind of “bad” that is so far from evil, yet so dark. It’s really a sight to behold. Aside from that, she’s incredibly elegant, poised, and has a nice, dark fashion sense that really works with her personality.
Everyone loves Morticia and everyone loves Gomez. Together they are perfect, but alone, they are really amazing as well. Morticia’s long dark hair, raised brows, and red lips do wonders for her. But I think it’s her purposeful, though creepy, seductiveness that really set her over the edge and made her so deserving of this spot.
2 Regina Mills - Once Upon A Time
Regina is a newer witch from ABC’s Once Upon A Time. But she is not to be underestimated. Her name is Regina Mills, also known as The Evil Queen, and she is played by Lana Parrilla. Watching her mature, change, rise up, and fall down throughout the series is just amazing. We see transformations that are so rare and special. Not to mention, her many outfits are more than pleasing. She can go with the spiffed up, professional mayor look or the medieval, low-cut dress dark look that is most people’s favorite. We’ve even seen her in light ball gowns or riding gear. The woman can pull off anything.
Lana Parilla is a sweet, kind woman, it’s obvious. So to see Regina in her “evil” stages is remarkable. She makes evil look so good, and yet can flip it around and make the hopeless romantic with a heart of gold look every bit as appealing.
1 Alex Russo - Wizards Of Waverly Place
Although Alex Russo is a bit too young to be attracted to in the beginning of Wizards of Waverly Place, towards the end, she becomes a young woman to behold. And directly after that, Selena Gomez began wearing rather provocative clothing and singing even more provocative songs. This took away every ounce of Alex she had in her. Alex was a “troubled” child, of course, but she was still on Disney channel, so she always had that “underage” demeanor throughout the show. Although, on the last special, she was already 19 years old, and it definitely was shown on occasion. She matured into a beautiful young lady with her mischievous Alex flair never leaving her side, which makes Evil Alex in the last special all that more appealing. She does evil really well.
