Movie Villains Who Are Gorgeous In Real Life

Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma of "Star Wars" is a character that never takes her helmet off in any of the films, but without it, you can see the actor's striking looks. The 6'3" rose to fame as Brienne of Tarth on "Game of Thrones," flying the flag for taller women, who sometimes write notes of appreciation to her.

The REd Queen

Known for the film she's made with her now ex-partner Tim Burton, Helena Bonham Carter is more than just crazy wigs and gothic makeup. She looks quite uncanny as the Red Queen in Burton's "Alice in Wonderland," but she's really a lovely-looking lady who enjoys "camouflaging" herself for her roles.

Aileen Wuornos

Charlize Theron often plays characters that are both tough and sexy, but she only had to bring one of those traits to "Monster." Theron won an Oscar for her portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos; makeup artist Toni G stunned audiences with her amazing work, but said it wasn't easy to transform Theron's "flawless" appearance.

Standing at a whopping 6'10", parkour expert Brian Prince was the perfect build to play the titular monster in 2018's "The Predator," but in real life, he's not only good-looking, he's apparently a great guy. Prince recalled that fellow actor "Olivia Munn said to me, 'There's no way you can play the Predator, you're too nice.'"

Rita Repulsa

The Rita Repulsa from the 2017 reboot of "Power Rangers" was very different from the wacky hat-wearing baddy from the '90s. Fresh-faced actor Elizabeth Banks recalled the makeup process, stating that "I was there for four hours, so when I wake up and I look in the mirror, it is a totally different person sitting there."
