Here are our picks for the hottest female aliens ever to grace the big screen:
11. Kirstie Alley, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Those who know Alley only as the whiny hag from the short-lived Showtime series Fat Actress will be shocked to learn that she was once considered rather fetching. As Spock’s sexy, straight-laced Vulcan protégé, Lt. Saavik, she cemented her place in erotic Trekkie fan-fiction for decades to come.
KEEP READING: Return of the sexy slave alien [PAGEBREAK]
10. Femi Taylor, Return of the Jedi
Forget slave Leia — the real star of Jabba the Hutt’s palace ensemble was Taylor’s Oola, a dancer from the planet Ryloth who entertained the plus-size crimelord with her lithe, graceful choreography. Sadly, Oola’s career came to an untimely end when Jabba, presumably displeased with her modern interpretation of traditional Twi’lek mating dance, fed her to his rancor.
KEEP READING: Hottest in the Galaxy [PAGEBREAK]
9. Missi Pyle, Galaxy Quest
Normally, big slimy tentacles on a woman are considered a major turnoff, but as with Cindy Crawford’s mole and J-Lo’s booty, Pyle’s Lalia transformed a negative into a positive through the sheer power of her otherworldly hotness.
KEEP READING: Hot Avatar Tail [PAGEBREAK]
Thus far, Fox has only released a few glimpses of Saldana’s character in James Cameron’s forthcoming sci-fi epic, so her placement on this list may prove to be a bit premature. We just want to see what she can do with that tail.
KEEP READING: Alien in Black...Lingerie [PAGEBREAK]
7. Lara Flynn Boyle, Men in Black II
Perhaps one reason Boyle was so convincing as the shape-shifting alien seductress Serleena was because she actually is an alien, a visitor from the distant planet of Bulimios, where she’s actually considered a bit paunchy.
KEEP READING: Superman's Superbabe [PAGEBREAK]
6. Sarah Douglas, Superman II
Some might consider Douglas’ Ursa a tad butch, but there’s something strangely alluring about the way she tortured Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel with her playful taunts of “Superman!” while laying waste to Metropolis. We’d step inside her Phantom Zone anytime.
KEEP READING: Cocoon Babe [PAGEBREAK]
5. Tahnee Welch, Cocoon
Though she never came close to replicating the career of her mother Raquel, Welch did manage to secure a spot on our prestigious list with her turn as Kitty in Ron Howard’s feel-good sci-fi fable. She might even have made it to the top, too, if her sexiest scene in the movie weren’t ruined by the buzz-killing presence of Steve Guttenberg.
KEEP READING: The Fifth Element is sex appeal [PAGEBREAK]
4. Milla Jovovich, The Fifth Element
The debate as to whether or not Jovovich’s “supreme being” Leeloo is really an alien is settled with one simple question: What self-respecting Earthling, even one living in the distant future, would parade around in that outfit? Even Cher thinks that thing is ridiculous.
KEEP READING: Jolly green booty [PAGEBREAK]
3. Rachel Nichols, Star Trek
Prior to suiting up as Scarlett in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Nichols combined her fiery crimson locks with green body paint to play Gaila, young James Kirk’s Starfleet Academy booty call.
KEEP READING: Origin of the Species [PAGEBREAK]
2. Natasha Henstridge, Species
The smokin’ hot spawn of a secret government experiment gone horribly wrong, Henstridge’s Sil provides a useful warning to scientists contemplating such noble endeavors in the future: Before you go about fusing alien and human DNA to create the ultimate blonde super-nympho, be sure to turn off the all-important “bloodthirsty killer” gene first.
1. Ornella Muti, Flash Gordon
KEEP READING: Flashtastic [PAGEBREAK]
Ordinarily, the label “campy” is simply a thinly-veiled pop-culture euphemism for “gay” — not that there’s anything wrong with that. (For copious examples, see John Waters’ filmography.) But Italian hottie Muti proved that camp can indeed be hetero-friendly with her unforgettable turn as Princess Aura in the 1980 B-movie classic. Nearly 30 years later, she still reigns supreme.
