Bikinis and Briefs: 20 Sexiest Movie Swimsuits

Sexiest Movie Bikinis Ever
Princess Leia, Phoebe, Halle and more!
Phoebe Cates in 'Fast Times At Ridgemont High'
Yellow polka dot bikinis are all well and good, but it's nothing when compared to Phoebe Cates red bikini scene, especially since the top portion eventually came off. Eat your heart out, fellas.
Angelina Jolie in 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life'
No one can fill out a bikini like Jolie (or at least Jolie circa 2003). Her fabulous curves as Lara Croft struck a chord among the male crowd and sent most of the female population running off to the gym.
Ursula Andress in 'Dr. No'
Andress showed off quite a bit of skin as Honey Ryder in what has to be one of the most iconic Bond girl get ups of all time. This classic ensemble is one of those looks that will never go out of style.
Jessica Alba in 'Into the Blue'
The movie may have been forgettable, but Jessica Alba's sexy bikini certainly wasn't. No one can rock a bikini quite like this girl.
Raquel Welch in 'One Million Years B.C.'
If anyone could make torn up rags look appealing it would be Welch (and Tarzan, of course). Cave women never looked so sexy.
Salma Hayek in 'From Dusk Till Dawn'
Hayek by herself is pretty hot, but when you throw a skimpy bikini and sexy strip tease into the mix it's almost too hot to handle. What better way to liven up a movie about the undead by showing off this actress's gorgeous figure? Well done, directors.
Demi Moore in 'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle'
At 39 Moore returned to the big screen with a bikini body that rivaled that of her 20-something costars, proving that young chicks aren't the only ones who are drool worthy.
Halle Berry in 'Die Another Day'
In an attempt to replicate Ursula Andress's iconic Bond Girl look, Berry rocked a similarly styled, bright orange bikini. Proceed with caution.
Ali Larter in 'Varsity Blues'
There's nothing like a playful whipped cream bikini proposition to help sweeten a deal. And even though James Van Der Beek turned Lartner down (cherries and all), it quickly became one of the most talked about moments in the film. Is there any wonder why?
Carrie Fisher in 'Return of the Jedi'
Princess Leia in the gold bikini became an iconic movie moment that still leaves most of the male population staring off in geek-eyed wonder (or perhaps to a galaxy far, far away?).
Daniel Craig in 'Casino Royale'
007 fans usually look to the famous Bond girls for hotness, but Craig managed to steal the show in 'Casino Royale.' Those swim briefs leave little to the imagination.
Channing Tatum in 'Dear John'
Any reason for Channing Tatum to have his shirt off is a good enough reason for us. Consider this a preview of what's to come in 'Magic Mike.'
Matthew McConaughey in 'Fool's Gold'
McConaughey seems to shirtless more often than not in most of his films, but it's only because he can pull it off oh so-well. You'll never hear us complaining.
Paul Walker in 'Into the Blue'
What's hotter than Paul Walker? A shirtless Paul Walker. Between those sculpted abs and bulging biceps, this actor's more than earned his right to a member of this sexy crew.
Elvis Presley in 'Blue Hawaii'
The waves certainly aren't real in this picture, but the King's abs definitely are. He's a Hound Dog, what more can we say?
Ryan Phillippe in 'Cruel Intentions'
Not even virginal Annette or stepsister Kathryn could resist Sebastian's charms. And who could blame them after seeing his glorious "assets" during the steamy pool scene?
Josh Hartnett in 'The Virgin Suicides'
Though the movie is pretty morbid, it's also darkly sexy thanks in large part to the high school heartbreaker Tripp Fontaine.
Taye Diggs in 'How Stella Got Her Groove Back'
However Stella got her groove back, you can be rest assured that a shirtless Taye Diggs helped her do it. Come on — those biceps are ridiculous.
Burt Lancaster in 'From Here to Eternity'
Here we can see Lancaster enjoying a sexy romp in the sand with co-star Deborah Kerr. A day at the beach has never looked so appealing.
Jude Law in 'The Talented Mr. Ripley'
As if the accent wasn't sexy enough, the way this man is able to pull off those swim shorts should be against the law.
