April 3 - Of all the roles available to pretty, young actresses, one of the most enduring is "stripper with a heart of gold." The latest A-list actress to join the elite club of movie strippers is Jessica Biel in her upcoming film 'Powder Blue.' Biel told Access Hollywood that her preparation for the role gave her new appreciation for the job. Hear hear, we say. We look forward to seeing Jessica Biel's heart of gold, and in the meantime, here are the Top Ten Movie Strippers. WARNING: These clips are racy and appropriate for mature audiences.
10. Elizabeth Berkley in 'Showgirls.' This is not the Jessie Spano we remember from 'Saved By The Bell.' For one thing: fewer pants.

9. Daryl Hannah in 'Dancing at the Blue Iguana.' Daryl Hannah was 40 when this movie was released, but you'd never know it from her strip club scenes.

8. Marisa Tomei in 'The Wrestler.' Tomei was nominated for an Academy Award after working with Mickey Rourke and the stripper pole.

7. Julie Andrews in 'Darling Lili. 'Mary Poppins performed a saucy burlesque that had the gentlemen's monocles popping right off their faces.

6. Demi Moore in 'Striptease.' Critics and fans agree that 'Striptease' isn't Demi's best film, but Mrs. Kutcher looks undeniably fantastic in her unmentionables.

5. Jamie Lee Curtis in 'True Lies.' Between the horror movies and Activia, there was this famous strip scene, cementing Jamie Lee Curtis as a sex symbol.

4. Jessica Alba in 'Sin City.' She refused to take it all off for the movie, but Jessica Alba's portrayal of a stripper in 'Sin City' was pretty smokin' anyway.

3. Natalie Portman in 'Closer.' Natalie Portman with a pink wig and lingerie. Yes.

2. Salma Hayek in 'From Dusk Til Dawn.' Salma plays a stripper who is also, as it happens, a vampire. You'd think a little face-eating would make this scene less sexy. You'd be wrong.

1. Rose McGowan in 'Planet Terror/Grindhouse.' This clip shows a stripper strutting her stuff. She struts much more effectively later in the movie, when one of her legs is replaced by a machine gun. That's right: it's not a disability, it's a gift.
