Webster dictionary defines a femme fatale as a seductive woman who lures men into dangerous or compromising situations and causes trouble. Naturally, Hollywood decided to encapsulate the sexual fetishes of men and give life to such sex symbols. Men of all ages have long desired to be witness to such temptresses. They have since become an instrument of wide-promotions and destructions of men’s heart. People flock into theaters in swamps when they become cognizant of a femme fatale’s presence in a movie. As Brittany once famously said, “Flaunt it if you have it.” And women have certainly heeded to her advice. We present to you, the list of top femme fatales ever in movies. A request for all heart patients to stay away. This isn’t a joke.
10. Kelly Van Ryan (‘Wild Things’)
Played by: Denise Richards. The pouty lips, the chiseled jaw line, and the burgeoning raw animistic magnetism make her probably the most dangerous femme fatale around. The credit for her immensely alluring portrayal must go to Denise Richards, the sex symbol of the 1990’s. There is just absolutely nothing that could make her better. She is perfect. Adjectives fall short of describing her in words.

9. Maxine Lund (‘Being John Malkovich’)
Played by: Catherine Keener. Catherine Keener, in personal life, is a shy and reserved person. And that is what makes her portrayal of Maxine in Spike Jonze’s ‘Being John Malkovich’ mesmerizing. Playing an ambitious woman, who intends to rule the world, Keener ticks all the boxes. The insatiable brunette compels a certain puppeteer to part ways with Cameron Diaz, and tap into this unique opportunity to be John Malkovich. Raw sexuality just oozes out of her, the sexual overtures of whom are even irresistible to John Malkovich himself. Stunning.
