1. Christina Hendricks Known better as Saffron on Joss Whedon’s short-lived series, Firefly, and also as Joan Holloway on the AMC series Mad Men, this babe is unbelievable! Perfect, perfect, perfect!
2. Audrey Hepburn Sorry, but perfection is perfection. A beauty both inside and out, she made her fortune being irresistible, then poured her energies into helping those less fortunate. I wouldn’t Wait Until Dark to take this Fair Lady out for a Roman Holiday.
3. Lala Ward She’s Romana from the Dr. Who series during the Tom Bakker era, and she’s amazing! Currently, she’s married to a hero of mine, Richard Dawkins. Lucky guy!
4. Nina Hartley My favorite porn-queen! Brains and beauty! Best ass ever, and her mind is every bit as amazing as her body. I’d do her today in a heartbeat, but she easily makes the list in my Wayback machine.
5. Kirsten Dunst She once played a child vampire, then grew up to become a killer in other ways. Oh, that Irish face!
6. Susan Sarandon And the prize for best ass outside of porn goes to… Yes, her! Is there any doubt? Admit it, you still want her, too!
7. Jennifer Connelly Need I say more?
8. Erin McKean I’ll bet you’ve never heard of her. She’s a lexicographer – someone whose job it is to catalog words in language. She emerged on the public scene at the TED conference in 2008, and I just fell in love with her. She’s so damned cute!
9. Pat Benatar File this one under ‘D’ for “Duh!”
10. Miwa Yoshida She is only the second pop singer to make the list. It’s difficult to impress me with a diva. But Japanese rock-band Dreams Come True is one of the biggest hits of
11. Nicole De Boer She’s Ezri Dax from Deep Space Nine, and the girl who should never have gotten killed in the movie Cube.
12. Anneke Rudegeair Better known as Soccergirl, of the podcast, Soccergirl, Inc. She’s my favorite skeptic-chick. Smart, fun, and a totally uninhibited sexual exhibitionist, she’s exactly my type! She’d score way, way higher on this list except 1.) she’s married, and 2.) she dumped one of my favorite musicians.
13. Rebecca Watson Also an awesome skeptic-chic, and equally hot, though not the proud sex queen that Soggergirl is. She continues to podcast for the Skeptics Guide to the Universe, even though she lives with her (sigh!) husband in
14. Kavi Ladnier What, never heard of her? Oh, yes you have! She played Mira, the luckless girlfriend of Mohinder Suresh in the TV hit, Heroes.
15. Scarlett Johansen She is way, way hotter as a brunette! What a lumbar curve on her!
Wayside entries (women who used to be on this list but got bumped):
Natalie Portman – Star Wars I killed the magic.
Sandra Bullock – She’s Miss Congeneality.
Jill Hennessy – I miss her days on Law & Order.
Jeri Ryan – Seven of Nine just doesn’t do it for me at Boston Public.
Angelina Jolie – I’m just burned out on all the hype.
Jennifer Lopez – Her nice ass got her on the list. Her ‘bitchy’ got her kicked off.
Kristin Davis – Tied with Cynthia Nixon. In fact, most of the side-women and all the leads from the cast of Sex In The City are women I’d love to be with, but the movies are just plain wrecking the chemistry.
Gillian Anderson – Love Scully. But damn that punk-ass Mulder!
Callista Flockhart – She got taken off the market by Harrison Ford, so she dropped off the chart.
Rachel Weisz - That incident with the Scorpion King was too much.
