Glenn Close has already received plenty of critical praise (and an Oscar nomination) for her gender-bending performance in "Albert Nobbs." It's not surprising. She's a great actor and all, but, more to the point: Who doesn't like a little reverse drag action, especially when done in a classy period piece, full of snooty accents and drawing rooms?
Today we salute those brave, square-jawed actresses of cinematic history who had the courage to trim their hair, slip into a suit, shove a rolled-up tube sock in their trousers and man up.
Looking good is one thing. Looking good and kicking ass simultaneously is quite another, as Kate Beckinsale has proved time and time again in the "Underworld" movies. You think wearing that skin-tight leather bodysuit while leaping, running, shooting automatic weapons and beating Lycans to a pulp is easy? Have you ever tried it?

You know how complicated these things can be). The high-speed international chase involves her changing her clothes and hairstyle a lot. Get More »
It's a good thing Angelina Jolie became a movie star. Her distractingly sexy features would surely cause a slew of on-the-job injuries if she was, say, a Starbucks barista or a crossing guard (think of all the scaldings and run-over children!).
Yes, it's for the public's own safety that this reluctant spawn of Voight be kept behind the protective barriers reserved for our Hollywood royalty, athletes and political leaders.
For over a decade, Jolie's upsettingly pouty lips and model-esque figure have defined "sex symbol" to the Western world (and "possible mommy" to the developing one). She'll soon be appearing with Johnny Depp (the only man prettier than her) in the upcoming "The Tourist," and the sexy factor might be off the charts. Get More »
