Ever wanted to have a role model? Nowadays, people usually look up to famous YouTubers, world leaders, successful CEO’s, singers, scientists and even sex symbols!
Sex symbols are irresistibly sultry, and each one of us has our favorite. Of course, our stunning contemporary celebrities like Jessica Simpson or Kate Upton, are this era’s sex symbols. But what about the older ones? You know, the classic bombshells!
For as long as men have been driven by women’s curves, the power of the sex symbol has been simply undeniable. Even after decades, some of these women still look quite stunning, if we’re all being honest, so here’s to 9 old-school sex symbols in their glory days and now!
She started popping up back in the 1980s in movies like “Witness” with Harrison Ford, and one of my favorite childhood movies – “Top Gun” with Tom Cruise. You can see she’s been through a lot over these couple of decades, but she’s still standing strong.
Diana is an English actress who played Emma Peel in the 1960s TV series “The Avengers”. And no, it has nothing to do with Marvel’s Avengers. Nowadays she’s best known for her character in the “Game of Thrones” as Olenna Tyrell.
Goldie Hawn is like the Swiss Army Knife of the movie industry! She’s a great actress, director, producer, and she’s got the voice of an angel. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for the 1969 film, “Cactus Flower”, and she’s still hot in Hollywood to this day!
Probably one of the most popular women on this list, this French actress, singer and model used to be one of the best known sex symbols of the 1950s and 1960s. What is she up to today? Probably having a glass of Chardonnay and a croissant somewhere at her villa.
Melanie’s first breakthrough role was in Arthur Penn’s “Night Moves” in 1975. After that she did a fantastic job on Brian De Palma’s “Body Double”, which earned her a National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actress. Life just kept getting better for young Melanie and it probably is still pretty sweet! But we hope she doesn’t forget her “Working Girl” days!
You may remember this great American actress and model from “The Woman in Red”, where she co-starred Gene Wilder. And let’s not forget “Weird Science”, to which the younger me got pretty excited about, and most likely same with every man on the planet when that movie came out.
Kathleen, who is widely known for her distinctive voice, has won two Golden Globe Awards and was even nominated for an Academy Award. Turner’s fame started to bloom during the 1980s, after the world saw “Body Heat”, “Crimes of Passion”, “Romancing the Stone”, and “Prizzi’s Honor”. She even guest starred in the third season of “Californication” as Sue Collini, the sex-crazed owner of a talent agency, and provided the voice of Jessica Rabbit. As you can see, Turner was, and still is, pretty hot.
While every other girl was trying to become a regular model, Janice was already a notch above them, as she was (probably) the first person ever to use the word “supermodel”. She was indeed one of the most successful models of the 1970s and 1980s, and even opened her own modeling agency in 2005.
The first naughty dream of any geek, Kirstie Alley caught her big break in 1982, playing Lieutenant JG Saavik in “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”. After that, she had tons of roles in sitcoms, and romantic comedies, until the late 1990’s. Remember “Look Who’s Talking”? Yeah, that was Kirstie! Didn’t she look fabulous? Well, not as much anymore, sadly.
P.S. I was going to include Carrie Fisher as number one, but, sadly, she passed away last year. RIP, you gorgeous human being. You will be missed, and say hi to all the other angels of 2016. Screw you, 2016, you suck.
