Comments: She might be nutty and/or insane these days, but was there a hotter actress working in 1991? I say nay. We're lucky Miss Stone didn't give up on her dream - it took her a solid decade before she really was a hit with the public, but when she did, in Total Recall, she made it memorable. She must have made an impression on her Recall director Paul Verhoeven as well, since he cast her as the lead in the real star-making role of her career in Basic Instinct. You could make the argument that it's been all downhill since then, but she had several hits amongst the valleys since then as well, including no less than an Academy Award nomination for Casino.

Comments: A little Alabama goes a long way. Patricia might have once been solely known as Rosanna's younger sister, but her prime role in True Romance opened up several doors for her and helped her make a name for herself. However, the snaggle-toothed one seemed to prefer indie/genre fare to the mainstream, shying away from the limelight until her starring role in Medium came up well into the 2000s.
