13 of the Hottest Psychopaths on Film
Mickey & Mallory Knox from Natural Born Killers (1994)
This murderous pair gives Bonnie and Clyde a run for their money in Natural Born Killers. Played respectively by Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis, Mickey and Mallory Knox are a husband and wife team of murderers who have both been driven to kill by their dark and violent pasts. The criminal pairing sexy dances their way across the country, ruthlessly killing those who stand in their way. At the time of the film’s release some critics feared that director Oliver Stone made the Knox’s lifestyle seem a little too attractive, as the film was thought to have inspired a number of copy-cat crimes in the 1990s.
The Joker from The Dark Knight (2008)
Clowns don’t usually do it for us, but something about Heath Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight made us almost change our minds. His performance as the ruthless and sadistic super villain was so good that it even earned Ledger a posthumous Academy Award for the role. Whether he was trying to assassinate the mayor or blow up a ferry, he looked good doing it despite the nurse’s outfit and the marred face, which is a task only someone as handsome as Ledger could accomplish. Maybe it was the Oscar or maybe it was a bit of Ledger’s residual hotness leftover from his kissing scenes with Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain, but either way we have a bit of a thing for the Joker.
Amy Dunne from Gone Girl (2014)
British actress Rosamund Pike seduced Ben Affleck and the rest of us as the shrewd beauty Amy Dunne in Gone Girl. This ice queen did the unthinkable: she actually made us feel sorry for one of Affleck’s scrubby cheating husband characters. Dunne starts off as a seemingly sympathetic housewife who disappears into thin air one day, but soon reveals herself to be a manipulative vixen who is hell bent on framing her unsuspecting husband for her disappearance. Despite her off the chart levels of crazy, we expect a lot of men would still be willing to be Gone Girl’d by the likes of an English rose like Rosemond Pike.
