I was trying to think of some of the sexiest, most dangerous villainesses in cinema...Here's are a few of my favorites to get us started:

#1 Sarah Douglas (Ursa in SUPERMAN and SUPERMAN II)

In the 80's Sarah Douglas was the go-to actress for playing the villainess: Conan The Destroyer, Falcon Crest, V:The Final Battle, and she was good in every role, but she was never better than when she played Ursa. She was the perfect combination of both beauty, brains, and a stone-cold killer. Quite simply she was unforgettable, and to this day no one has ever topped that role.

#2 Michelle Pfeiffer (Catwoman in Batman Returns)
A close runner up to Sarah Douglas...and probably the best Catwoman so far. She bring a real menace to the role and a sense of danger, while still being sexy and a bit crazy.

#3 Sharon Stone (Catherine Trammel in Basic Instinct)

#4 Sharon Stone (Lori; Total Recall)

#5 Famke Janssen (Xenia Onatopp; Goldeneye)

#6 Barbara Carrera (Fatima Blush; Never Say Never Again)

The one truly outstanding, priceless contribution to the Bond series made by an otherwise forgettable film.

#7 Rosemund Pike (Gala Brand Miranda Frost; Die Another Day)

Not necessarily an obvious choice, but there is something about the way she glides in and out from stiff, arch-conservative, emotionally-distant, haughty MI6 agent to cold, efficient, brutal killer. She's sexy in a wholesome, non-sexual way...if that makes any sense. In other words, she doesn't need to flash the goods like Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct. Rosamund practically steals the movie in a role that could have really gone the other way and been horribly over-acted or even no-acting at all; it's not necessarily a splashy role when compared to a Xenia Onatopp, May Day, or Pussy Galore, but Rosemund really makes the most of it.

#8 Li BingBing (White Haired Witch; The Forbidden Kingdom)

#9 Allison Doody (Dr.Schnieder; Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade)

How did Allison Doody *NOT* become a major star after this film???? :?: :x :( 🇳🇴 :pale: :silent: 😕

#10 Natasha Henstridge (Sil; Species)

Famke Janssen (Dutch) as Xenia Onatopp in Goldeneye. Before the millenium Trilogie, there already be a girl who play with fire.

Thanks to some people like Tom Cruise & Hans Zimmer. Thandie Newton in Mission Impossible 2.

Demi Moore in Disclosure. The second movie from the Michael Douglas cat & mouse quadrilogy, Before he did The Game and A Perfect Murder but after Basic instinct there whas Disclore.

Milla Jovovich In Resident Evil with her chacter named Alice. The same name as innesint girl search to a rabit from a Disney verytale.

Mystic (Rebecca Romijn,American but a Dutch father) from X-men. Watch out, look like a nice girl but before you now it she show her real color.


Angelina Jolie (Tomb Raider, Mrs and Mr smith)

Gemma Arterton (QOS) Very unrated for QOS and mabey there part be a bit short. One of the best castings for a Bond movie since years.

I don't know that I love any femme fatale more than Elsa Bannister (Rita Hayworth) from THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI.

But, if she counts, Romy Schneider's Leni from THE TRIAL comes close.
