The Top Ten Hottest X-Men Babes
How many of you were able to predict the box office domination of NEIGHBORS? Sure, the movie looked funny in its trailers and there was definitely going to be some good R-rated comedy numbers but the thing toppled THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 from the top box office spot after only one week. Now this week we're going to listen to more GODZILLA griping (yeah, yeah, I get it fanboys - the 1998 reboot is an un(der)sung masterpiece) before the more anticipated release of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
. I was wrong about TASM2 being the hugest thing this summer but am I wrong about the top ten babes from the X-MEN movies?
I'm really looking forward to checking out the even more grownup Page when she returned to the X-MEN world in DOFP, her having been only a 19-year old cute young thing when LAST STAND was released. Page has a face that captivates and compels. I get won over by her wide-eyed gaze each new time that she appears.
Forget about the Paquin who came to the nudity light when she was cast in "True Blood." Most people weren't able to see her as a hottie when she was cast in the first X-MEN movie because we'd watched her grow up as a child actress (with that stuttering guffaw at the Oscar podium when she won her Best Supporting Actress stature) and the fact that she was barely 18 when the first movie was released. But over the following years and sequels, Paquin slowly evolved into a really nice piece of mutant ass. And we all know where she went after that.
I had been told that I sung Zoe Kravitz's praise too frequently and highly but that was prior to people checking out the bi-racial beauty in FIRST CLASS, cast as a rough-around-the-edges dancer who needed some guidance to make the most of her special abilities. One of those being her sexiness flying about the screen.
Here's the reason why NEIGHBORS is doing so great (and BRIDESMAIDS and the INSIDIOUS movies and every single other thing she's in). There's nothing better than when dynamo Rose Byrne is on her game and when it came to stripping down to her undies in FIRST CLASS in order to follow Emma Frost, well, she had our rapt attention.
If there was going to be another character with Adamantium and if that character was going to do some serious ass-kicking of fan favorite Wolverine, then I'm super happy it was Kelly Hu, sincerely one of the hottest women who could be poured into leather and fitted with eerie light contact lenses. Why hasn't Hu been in more stuff?
Solid as a wooden acting block of ice, that January Jones is. Still, it's a feat to attempt looking past just how sensational she looked in her various retro sex kitten costumes for the role of Emma Frost. The fact that it's been rumoured that the director of FIRST CLASS (Matthew Vaughn, married to model Claudia Schiffer) knocked up Jones while they were filming is also kinda kinky, dirty hot.
I can stretch into other movies if I want to because it's my top ten and I say that if the first WOLVERINE movie stared with X-MEN ORIGINS, then it counts as being an X-MEN movie and Collins counts as being one of the hottest in all of the women featured in them. One of the unsung babes of the blockbuster season, she's also been known to look outstanding for dudes named John as well.
Jennifer Lawrence blew up so big in between signing on to be in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and this next installment of the next generation that the movie was actually postponed in order to accommodate her schedule. While it's hard to compare her to other lovelies who have donned the blue makeup body suit, she most certainly wore it extremely well.
While I've always preferred Janssen as a brunette (hence my resistance in using an image of her in her Jean Grey or Phoenix red locks) there's still nothing that you can deny about her being a seductively sexy woman who is nearly entirely irresistible. At the time that the first set of X-MEN movies were released, there was another female cast member who was supposedly hotter but she couldn't touch Famke.
Well, duh. When you take one of the top Sports Illustrated slash Victoria's Secret supermodels at the time and tell a bunch of horny nerds who read comic books that you're going to film her in nothing but a bunch of blue body paint and pieces of rubber, you're bound to end up greatness. What I loved best about Romijn slinking about in blue is that it showcased just how well she could command the camera without ever saying a word.
