We all know that there are some smoking hot female actresses that capture our undivided attention for various reasons. We also know that there have been some of the best and worst sports flicks in movie history that have equally drawn our focus. Now when you combine beautiful women and sports, it's like peanut butter and jam, a timeless classic loved by all.
While some of the following fifteen characters/actresses are listed because of their obvious smoking-hot looks, others are girl-next-door quiet types that make you actually think you may have a chance of hooking up with them and not just heading home for a lonely night in the basement. A number of these movies have left fans claiming for a part two to be written, but we doubt that in doing so it would do justice to the movie or the characters themselves. Whether you watched the movie for the comedy or the motivational inspiration, either way you more than likely have left walked away remembering one or more of these fifteen steamy actresses.
15 Claudia (Vanessa Angel) - Kingpin
If there is anything that could possibly make bowling steamy, it was Vanessa Angel in the best bowling movie ever made. While we highly doubt that a pair of pumps make for quality bowling shoes or that there has ever been a better use for that little hand dryer on the ball return thingy, who are we to judge. Sure one could see from a mile away that Claudia was going to end up leaving Stanley for Roy in the typical bad girl falls for the good guy love story, but are we really going to sit here and critique the plot of a movie like Kingpin?
14 Kate Veatch (Christine Taylor) - Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
There is something about Taylor wearing a slightly unbuttoned white blouse that would make a man want to "dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge" a million red balls in order to have a chance at her character Kate Veatch.
13 Virginia Venit (Julie Bowen) - Happy Gilmore
Some question as to whether or not golf is really a sport and some may question as to whether or not Happy Gilmore is a sports movie. Well the answers to both questions are yes. Now that we have clarified those two pressing questions we can get to the point of adding Virginia Venit to the list.
12 Darcy Sears (Ali Larter) - Varsity Blues
There is something about Ali Larter that screams "girl next door" and yet there is also something about her that screams "drop dead gorgeous". We should start listening to the voices in our heads more often.
As the head cheerleader of the West Canaan Coyotes, Darcy Sears sexiness, attitude and snug fitting cheerleading outfit made her way into all teenage football players wildest dreams. Speaking of dreaming, there had to be plenty of them following her whip cream bikini scene..... James Van Der Beek must have had some serious duct tape action going on in order to get through that shot! If that wasn't enough there is also the strip sequence with JVDB during a car ride home.
11 Isis (Gabrielle Union) - Bring It On
Okay, let's clear the air right off the bat, yes thinking that Gabby was a smoking hot cheerleader even though her character was only 16 is a little creepy. There, we said it. But, all things considered, at the time, Union was a 26 year old playing a 16 year old, therefore we were really drawn to someone who was of legal age, therefore less creepy.
10 Anne Marie Chadwick (Kate Bosworth) - Blue Crush
There are a couple of classic surfing flicks that top Blue Crush when it comes to riding the waves. The Endless Summer, Soul Surfer and North Shore are all top notch films (regardless of how cheesy they may or may not be). However, none of those had the stunning visual that was Kate Bosworth as the leading character. Like how could any film not be ranked among the best when the main character Anna Chadwick is roaming around most of the film in a bikini.
9 Haley Graham (Missy Peregrym) - Stick It
Long before she became known as Andy McNally on the short-lived and cancelled way to soon TV series Rookie Blue, the sexy 36 year old Canadian found herself donning a unitard in the 2006 gymnastics flick. After years of supporting roles on the small screen, Stick It was Peregrym's first venture onto the big screen - which for fans meant a chance to see the then 23 year old beauty in a skin tight outfit for countless scenes, not to mention her in a skin tight outfit contorting her body in a number of ways that let the imagination run wild.
8 Annabelle Farrell (Brooke Langdon) - The Replacements
Langdon joins a number of females on this list as sexy sideline supporters that leave a memorable picture in our mental Rolodex. You know how Joey Lauren Adams had that raspy sexy voice in all those Kevin Smith flicks? Yea, well add that to a skimpy cheerleaders uniform that displayed her goods and Langdon gives us good reason to include her on this list.
7 Monica Wright (Sanaa Lathan) - Love and Basketball
It's been nearly 17 years since fans saw Monica and Quincy McCall hit the courts in the small budget but big fan following hoops flick. While it isn't Hoosiers or He Got Game, L&B did a pretty good job depicting the game both on and off the court.
6 Christina Pagniacci (Cameron Diaz) - Any Given Sunday
Some guys like a powerful controlling woman. Look no further than Christina Pagniacci, the owner of the Miami Sharks. Now most of us are used to the bubbly, sexy, fun loving Diaz characters like bootie shaking Natalie Cook (Charlie's Angels) or the strip teasing Christina Walters (Sweetest Thing), but the change of pace into a more serious role provided viewers with a sexiness of a different kind.
5 Autumn Haley (Halle Berry) - The Program
Shoot, with a tutor like Autumn Haley you know that would be enough incentive for us to go to class. Hell, we might even do some work. Who cares if she had a boyfriend the size of Alvin Mack...okay, that might scare us off a bit.
4 Yvette Denslow (Jenny McCarthy) - BASEketball
Back in the 90s, you would have been hard pressed to find someone who wouldn't have Jenny McCarthy on their top ten hot list. 25 to 30 years later her place on that list may still be intact. As an actress though, well that is a completely different story.
3 Lucy Draper (Kathy Ireland) - Necessary Roughness
Easily the sexiest kicker in all of football history, the former swimsuit model, who even at her current age of 54 is still capable of turning heads, was the ultimate California girl back in the late 80s and throughout the 90s. Although her role with the Texas State Fightin' Armadillos wasn't exactly earth shattering acting, it certainly made it worth having to see Manumana's rear end and an awkward camera angle for a period of time.
Oh did we mention Kathy Ireland wrapped in just a towel before heading into a steamy shower? Sorry, our bad. Now considering that she was able to boot the ball with easy from 40 yards out, there may have been some NFL teams that could have used Draper's leg during that era.
2 Laila (Zoe Saldana) - Drumline
Was Drumline really a sports movie? Depends on how you look at it. We'll consider it eligible for this list based on the fact that there was football involved as well as cheerleaders and the halftime band performance, all of which make up a typical high school or NCAA event. Now what we want to know is how a freshman like Devon Miles (Nick Cannon) could catch the eye of the North Carolina A&T State University's hottest cheerleader, who is also an upperclassman?
1 Gloria Clemente (Rosie Perez) - White Men Can't Jump
Kanye West may have disrespected Rosie Perez's twins, but for fans of Gloria Clemente, we were all thinking the same thing back in 1992 when the second greatest basketball flick ever was released. While she was loyal to her boyfriend Billy for a long period of time, a ride or die chick if we ever saw one, considering all the crap he went through with the Stucci Brothers, what we question is - was Gloria in the gym (or on the concrete if you will) with Billy when he was putting up all those jumpers?
If Gloria ever needed a late night study buddy for another run on Jeopardy, chances are plenty of ballers would gladly help memorize irrelevant facts and pass her a glass of water when she got dehydrated. Rumors of a WMCJ 2 have been circulating around and while it may not do the original justice, fans would be more than happy to see Gloria roller-skate up to the court one more time.
