50 Sexiest Movie Characters

Bridget Gregory (The Last Seduction)

The Character: A scheming devil-woman who uses her sexuality to manipulate the men she draws into her web. Mind you, they seem happy enough with the deal. To begin with at least…

Sexiest Quality: Her utter ruthlessness. A bit kinky perhaps, but weirdly sexy nonetheless.

The Driver (Drive)

The Character: The dictionary definition of the strong, silent type, who will go to any lengths to protect the woman he loves, no matter how violent…

Sexiest Quality: His wardrobe. Who knew that silk driving jackets could look so sharp?

Mia Wallace (Pulp Fiction)

The Character: As the wife of fearsome gangster Marsellus Wallace, and a terrible flirt, Mia Wallace is a dangerous prospect for chaperone Vincent Vega. More than he knows…

Sexiest Quality: Her dance moves. She certainly knows her way around a twist!

Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates Of The Caribbean)

The Character: A rum-swilling devil with an eye for the ladies, Captain Jack is a far more swoonsome proposition that Orlando Bloom’s by-the-numbers heartthrob. Like comparing Keith Richards to Paul McCartney.

Sexiest Quality: His scurrilously self-serving charm. Never a dull moment when he’s around.

Gilda (Gilda)

The Character: A man-eater of the highest order, men queue up to vie for Gilda’s attentions like moths to the flame. Poor souls…

Sexiest Quality: Her ability to coat everything in sexuality. “Are you decent?” asks one suitor, innocently. “Me?” she purrs. “Sure… I’m decent.”

Rhett Butler (Gone With The Wind)

The Character: Smuggler, soldier, businessman… whatever Rhett turns his hand to, he does it with considerable panache. Top moustache as well.

Sexiest Quality: His way with words. “You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how,” he purrs. Phew!

Catwoman (Batman Returns)

The Character: Depending on what film you’re watching, either a cunning, conniving master-thief or a downtrodden shrew turned ultra-vixen (or the other one, of whom we won’t speak). Either way, she’s a ten.

Sexiest Quality: The fact that she could comfortably kick your arse without breaking a nail.

Indiana Jones (Raiders Of The Lost Ark)

The Character: Whip-cracking, globe-trotting man of adventure. A sight more exciting than your average archaeologist.

Sexiest Quality:
His give-a-shit attitude, as demonstrated by the offhand disposal of a showboating swordsman.

Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)

The Character: A pixellated princess made flesh courtesy of Angelina Jolie, Lara is the female equivalent of Indiana Jones, searching for all manner of dusty old treasures while looking impossibly gorgeous throughout.

Sexiest Quality: Her predilection for hotpants. Not sure how practical they are, but still…

Tyler Durden (Fight Club)

The Character: “All the ways you wish you could be, that's me. I look like you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable, and most importantly, I am free in all the ways that you are not.”

Sexiest Quality: An anti-establishment side a mile wide paired with movie-star looks is quite a combination.
