"Unforgettable" can be a good or bad thing. From EW.com.
SHARON STONE - Basic Instinct (1992)
It was the leg-crossing heard 'round the world. With one shift of her not-inconsequential gams, Sharon Stone became a star.
HALLE BERRY - Monster's Ball (2001)
This wasn't the first time Halle Berry had dropped her kit for a movie — that'd be the otherwise forgettable Swordfish
— but it was the first time she had a valid reason to do so. As a
woefully repressed recent widow, baring her body to Billy Bob Thornton's
prison guard was the equivalent to baring her soul. Plus, it was
JASON SEGEL - Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
It's once, twice, three times a wiener in the first scenes for Jason Segel's pitiful but lovable Peter Bretter in Forgetting Sarah Marshall
(produced by Judd Apatow; see also Walk Hard). Prop comedy indeed,
these initial glimpses of Peter's flaccid friend — paired nicely with
his undefined abs and pecs in the early stages of man boob — succeeded
in making his character immediately relatable. In that ''Oh, man, I've
dated/been that dude'' kinda way.
JULIANNE MOORE - Short Cuts (1993)
has recounted that Robert Altman warned her that the role of Marian
Wyman had a lengthy monologue where she confesses her infidelity to her
husband (Matthew Modine) while naked from the waist down. The redheaded
actress says she not only agreed to take the role on the spot but also
told Altman that, as a bonus, viewers would see that the carpet matches
the drapes. We did, and it does.
- Eastern Promises (2007)
a near-perfect example of can't-look-away-can't-NOT-look-away
filmmaking, Russian mobster Nikolai Luzhin (Mortensen) engages in a
brutal steam-room knife fight with nothing but mist to cloak his
KATHY BATES - About Schmidt (2002)
Kathy Bates hasn't been shy about showing her not-a-supermodel's body on screen. She got naked and rolled around in the mud in At Play in the Fields of the Lord,
and she's similarly fearless in a scene here where she surprises a
hot-tubbing Jack Nicholson by stepping into the Jacuzzi au naturel.
Nicholson's grouchy retiree is pretty funny, but the bold Bates steals
the movie's biggest laugh.
- Old School (2003)
We have the fellas of Old School to thank for a whole new drinking vernacular in the 2000s. Since its debut on the hungover, bloodshot-eyed Animal House
scene, we've all been victim to a ''Frank the Tank!'' chant during a
boozy night. And for the unlucky ones (come on, people, ''beer before
liquor gets you drunk quicker''), you've uttered Will Ferrell's ''We're
going STREAKing!'' one more time than you'd like to — or can — remember.
CHARLTON HESTON - Planet of the Apes (1968)
usually, when human scientists examine monkeys in a lab, the monkeys
are naked, so turnabout is fair play when it's the apes poking at
sweaty, wild-eyed savage beast Charlton Heston.
- National Lampoon's Vacation (1983)
golden hair and hot-mom-next-door good looks, Vacation matriarch
Beverly D'Angelo shined as the common man's version of The Graduateesque
MILF. After her revealing sudsy shower scene in the cult classic, you
can only wonder why the bumbling Clark Griswold was constantly
fantasizing about other blond babes.
KATE WINSLET - Holy Smoke (1999)
(I'm adding this one because it wasn't on EW's list -- they have Kate, but don't mention this scene in Holy Smoke, where she walks up to the cam stark naked and then pees down her leg. Memorable. - C)
