Aliens and robots so beautiful we almost forgot they were trying to murder us.
In theaters this weekend, Under The Skin stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien being who inhabits the body of a human to prey upon hitchhiking Scotsmen (who must think they’ve struck gold when ScarJo pulls up in a van, offering them a ride). Here, four more sexy aliens/robots/alien-robots who assumed the identities of beautiful women.
Kristanna Loken in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
The idea that humans could ever become slaves to a race of machines we ourselves created seems pretty farfetched. Until you see Kristanna Loken in T3. And then you're like, "Oh, OK, yeah, that will definitely happen."
Natasha Henstridge in Species
Watching this 1995 classic - about an alien seductress looking for a man to impregnate her, thereby perpetuating her species - really makes us wonder what former Maxim model Natasha Henstridge has been up to the last few years. Boy, she had a great pair of tentacles.
Isabel Lucas in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen
It would be easy to scoff at a movie in which a guy like Shia LaBeouf gets to date a girl like Megan Fox - after all, he's no Brian Austin Green. But that's why it was ever so slightly gratifying when the advances of this exotic collegiate beauty turned out to be far more deceptive-con than Shia realized.
Diane Kruger in The Host
We admit to having skipped this 2013 flick, probably because it is based on a book by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, and that didn't work out so well for us the last time. But you don't really need to understand the movie's plot to appreciate the beauty of evil alien Diane Kruger. Unlike the rest of the movies in this list, which are obviously super plot-driven.
