The Hottest Leading Ladies of 2013



When the guys and gals of Punch Drunk Critics are sitting around the fictional water cooler (where our Rocky Hadadi always forgets to buy paper cups), our chats often turn to how hot this actress is, or how hot this actor was in some random movie. It's what we do, and I'd be lying if I said a good chunk of our readership wasn't folks coming to check out whatever hot pics we put up every chance we get. But now we're at the end of the year, my favorite time of year as a movie geek, and while the coming days will be filled with lists of our top films (like my best overlooked movies of 2013), it's also a good time to reflect on the sexiest leading ladies.

To that end, this list isn't just who was hottest in general. These are the leading ladies who really got my engine revving in a starring role. If I didn't do that then my list would be topped by Ali Larter every single year, but she didn't do jack sh*t in 2013 so she ain't here. But is Cameron Diaz for The Counselor? Yeah, definitely. Would she ever be one of my top draft picks normally? Hell no.

Some are smokin', some are quirky, some are a little dangerous, but these are my picks for the sexiest leading ladies of 2013. Enjoy! (Note: Meagan Good would have made this list for Anchorman 2 but there are no good photos! Come on, man! She had Ron Burgundy actin' a fool! More than usual.)
