Phoebe Cates Looking Stunning in a Bikini – 1982
After appearing in Fast Times At Ridgemont High in 1982, everyone was talking about how drop-dead gorgeous actress Phoebe Cates looked in that film. Not only that, but audiences seemed to obsessed with one memorable scene in particular. You probably know the one we’re alluding to.
Even though she was a young actress, she had already appeared nude on camera before. So, by the time she was cast in Fast Times, she felt pretty comfortable going in front of the camera without any clothes on.
Months before Fast Times At Ridgemont High hit theaters, Cates debut film Paradise premiered. That adventure romance film which directed by Stuart Gillard in his directorial debut. Featured a plot very similar to the controversial 1980 film The Blue Lagoon.
Just as how a very young Brooke Shields had appeared in the nude in The Blue Lagoon, Cates also got naked for the filming of Paradise. Shockingly, she’s only 17 years old when that movie was made. It goes without saying, but such a thing would be unthinkable in Hollywood today. Join Facts Verse to know the details about the Unedited Photos of 80s Women That Captured More Than Expected.
Kathy Ireland Stepping Up To Bat – 1987
In the 80s, Ireland’s image plastered on the walls of literally millions of teenage boy’s bedrooms across America. She started modeling when she was 16 after being scouted by Elite Model Management. She went on to appear on the covers of magazines like Forbes, Cosmo, Vogue, and Mademoiselle.
Kathy’s famous Sport Illustrated cover from 1989. However, is considered to one of the greatest swimsuit edition covers of all time.
Cameron Diaz As A High School Cheerleader – 1988
Years before Cameron Diaz cast as one of Charlie’s Angels in the early 2000’s. The fresh-faced future actress was a cheerleader attending Long Beach Polytechnic High School. Fun fact, at one point, the school had the honor of hosting hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, but that’s a story for another video.
Instead of going off to college, Diaz signed a contract with a modeling agency called Elite Model Management when she was just 16. We can only imagine how jealous her fellow classmates must have been.
Diaz ended up modeling for brands like Levi’s, Coca-Cola, and Calvin Klein, but after she appeared in the 1994 Jim Carrey film The Mask. She transformed into a bonafide film star. She followed that up with a critically acclaimed performance in Charlie Kaufman’s 1999 surreal fantasy film, Being John Malkovich.
Jane Leeves In Leopard Print – 1985
Before she was a fixture on TV in the 90s, actress Jane Leeves was a regular on the Benny Hill Show as one of the beautiful ‘Hill’s Angels’. These women were members of Hill’s comedy and dance troupe and appeared in countless sketches.
Leeves did a lot of stage work before landing regular roles on television. Although she wasn’t given many lines on The Benny Hill Show. It obvious even then that she was a gifted actress who was destined for big things. She took to comedy quickly and proved that she was a lot more than just a pretty face.

Jamie Lee Curtis In “Perfect” – 1985
In the 80s, Curtis transitioned from being a scream queen into a beauty icon. In the film Perfect, which hit theaters in 1985, Curtis spent most of her time onscreen wearing skimpy little leotards while appearing in sensual workout scenes. She later regretted appearing in the film. However, as she felt like the seductive exercise sequences, which were borderline pornographic, were too long and drawn out.
Heather Locklear In A Grassy Field – 1983
In the 80s, pretty much everywhere you looked, you saw Heather Locklear. This blonde bombshell had a recurring role on the television series TJ Hooker. And had a pivotal role on Dynasty, where she got a chance to be as sinister and devious as she desired.
She was one of the reigning queens of the decade with her come-hither eyes and poofy hair. And besides appearing in a few of the most-watched TV shows of her time. She also briefly got involved in the hair metal scene after marrying Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
She proved that she could rock every bit as hard as the boys. And she looked absolutely stunning in the process.
Carrie Fisher At The Beach – 1983
While filming Return the Jedi, Carrie Fisher had to wear the now-legendary bikini seen in the photo in many of the early scenes that took place at Jabba’s palace. When George Lucas first showed her the outfit, she apparently thought he was kidding at first.
Fisher felt very nervous about having to wear the outfit as she had to sit very straight. And still to avoid having visible indentation lines formed. No lines or creases allowed. So all she could do was sit very rigid and straight until it was time for her scenes to be shot. As amazing as those finished shots looked, it must have been wildly uncomfortable for her to get them.

Sharon Stone On All Fours – 1983
In the early half of the decade, another eventually ubiquitous 80s queen, Sharon Stone, was doing just about everything she could to land her big breakthrough role in the film industry. The problem was, however, that everything that she had been cast in up to that point was just a B-film.
Everyone simply wanted to cash in on her looks, but she desperately wanted to be seen as a serious actress. Eventually, though, she decided to use her intelligence as a way of being sexy.
Stone is a self-described ‘bookworm’. In a ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’, kind of move, she came up with a plan where she would be able to use her smarts to her advantage in such a way as to score a more significant role.
After learning from a friend who was a photo editor for Playboy that Hugh Hefner wanted her to model for his magazine. Stone showed her well-connected pal a series of black and whites that Man Ray had taken of his wife.
Sharon said that she wanted her shoot to be something like that. And literally just minutes later, she landed her big role in Basic Instinct.

Tanya Roberts In The Beastmaster – 1982
There are two things that audiences remember best from The Beastmaster, one being the fact that the titular master had a magical power to control animals and the second being Tanya Roberts.
Roberts was the queen of B-films in the 80s, and she also happened to be every teen boys dream girl. She once quoted as saying that the only reason why she chose to appear in The Beastmaster was because the script didn’t call for as much focus on her.
Christie Brinkley Showing Off Her Beach Bod – Circa 1980s
Brinkley was one of the most popular and sought-after models of the 80s. She was frequently features on the cover of Sports Illustrated and introduced the world to the modern ideal of what a supermodel was and could be.
That being said, she wasn’t just a model. She also created art and even came up with some pretty innovative ideas to help other young women.
Speaking to the New York Times several years ago, Brinkley talked about how in the 80s. She came up with an idea of developing a ‘Real Model’ doll collection. She wanted the dolls to be supermodels who jet-set round the world, could speak multiple languages, and also teach girls a variety of solid life lessons.

Pamela Anderson The Blue Zone Girl – 1989
Pam Am was 22 when she was scouted after being featured on the Jumbotron at a British Columbia Lions football game at the BC Place Stadium in Vancouver while wearing a Labatt Blue Beer cutoff T-Shirt. The shot garnered her so much attention that the beer manufacturer hired her immediately as a spokesmodel to promote their brand.
Inspired by the event and Anderson’s stroke of luck, her boyfriend at the time, Dan Llicic produced a poster of Anderson’s image that was entitled the Blue Zone Girl. Later that year, Anderson appeared on the cover of Playboy’s October 1989 issue. The following year, Anderson was chosen as Playmate of the Month for the magazine’s February 1990 issue.
In 1991, Anderson was cast as the first ‘Tool Girl’ on Home Improvement. And in 1992, she scored her iconic role on Baywatch. Her work with Playboy, which ended spanning 22 years, combined with those early television roles, helped transform Anderson into one of the most famous models of all time.
