Even though more of the men in the WWE have starred in movies, the women have also represented well. From independent films to those from WWE Studios, many Divas have graced the silver screen. Frankly, I think there should be more of the lovely ladies on a 20-foot movie screen. The last thing I want to see is Triple H in Chaperone 2: Return of the Chaperone.
There's a lot of similarity between wrestling and movies. Obviously, the choreography that the Divas have to learn when they're wrestling lends itself well to a fight scene, or any scene for that matter. Already knowing how to hit their marks, project a character in front of camera, and memorize lines doesn't place them far behind an everyday actress.
Additionally, acting in movies is much easier on them physically. There's no diving between the ropes or back body drops from up in the air. Acting would be a great way to save miles on their bodies while allowing them to still be famous and pick up a large paycheck as well. Ronda Rousey has made some appearances in films, so there's no reason today's group of women can't crack the box office too.
I wouldn't be surprised if we'll see more Divas on the silver screen in the future.
14 Maria Kanellis
If there's one thing that Maria Kanellis, has, it's drive. She literally started out with no experience and has learned how to interview, how to wrestle, how to act, and there will probably be more to add to that list before she retires.
13 Eve Torres
12 Gail Kim
10 Summer Rae
9 The Bella Twins
8 Kelly Kelly
3 Stacy Keibler
1 Trish Stratus
Quite simply, Trish Stratus is one of the most famous WWE Divas in history. It's easy to see why she's been incredibly successful at every venture that she's tried. She was fantastic on the microphone, excellent in the ring, and, of course, absolutely gorgeous. Along with those skills, Stratus was believable in whatever role the WWE threw at her. Whether she was a face or heel, confident or cowardly, Stratus always gave it her all and was successful. It's no wonder that she made a seamless transition from the ring to the motion picture industry. Before films, Stratus was part of multiple television shows and opened her own eco-friendly yoga studio. All of the qualities and skills that she developed as a wrestler certainly were in factor in her Hollywood success. Stratus was the lead actress and the star of Bounty Hunters in 2011. In 2015, Stratus took on a supporting role in Gridlocked.
