7. Tie: Catwomen (Halle Berry as Patience Phillips in Catwoman and Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (Catwoman) in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises

As Catwoman, Halle Berry prowls the streets on a Ducati Monster looking for criminals with which to play cat and mouse. While the movie didn’t win any awards, Berry set new standards for sexy cat outfits. Although not known as a motorcyclist, Berry is often spotted as the passenger on the back of her boyfriend’s Harley.

Nothing points to Anne Hathaway as having anything to do with motorcycles outside of the yet-unreleased Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises,” but in this clip she is clearly operating a fat-tire two-wheeler, much like the Batpod in “The Dark Knight” from 2008.

Hathaway, in a skintight leather suit and the doggie-style position of her riding that, er, motorcycle… pod… whatever it you want to call it, is seductive enough to earn her a tie for sixth on our list. She was voted one of 2010’s sexiest stars by Entertainment Weekly, however, we’d prefer to be the cream to Halle Berry’s Catwoman.

    “The theme song to “The Grinch” describes the eponymous character’s soul as “An appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable,” and that’s pretty much how” *I* feel about this article.

    “For female moviegoers, it’s good to see an empowered woman riding a bike and kicking ass.” Survey a lot of female movie goers on that, did you?

    “For men, well… if she’s hot, she’s hot, and a gorgeous woman with serious motorcycle skills is fodder for male fantasies.” So… a woman with serious motorcycle skills is notable because she can be used as fodder for male fantasies? Not because she’s, you know, a motorcyclist with serious skills.

    In all fairness, I shouldn’t be surprised to find this on a site with an entire section dedicated to “Motorcycle Babes”… Which is, in large part, why I rarely stop by.

  • Carrie-Ann Moss looks great on the Ducati in Matrix Reloaded 😀

    yeah, nothing’s more offensive than sexually attractive women. BTW, that’s sarcasm.
