Everyone loves a dead hooker. Everyone loves a live hooker for that matter. “Makin money the hard way” is one of the mankind’s oldest professions. And though it’s not necessarily something you hope for your children to aspire to, it’s always been a relevant topic in societal discussion.With Love Ranch opening this week, it seems only appropriate that we take a look at a few memorable Hollywood hookers who never fail to get us off:Vivian Ward – Pretty Woman
Gina Gershon has always made my film reel shutter, from being the best thing in the epic disaster Showgirls to playing a mob battling lesbian ex-con Bound, she knows how to bring th sizzle back into movie screen sexy. With her current film Love Ranch she gets to be in back into her cathouse gear and amping up the cinema sweat with Joe Pesci and Helen Mirren.A word from Gina: "Actresses are nightmares. I don't hang out with any of them. That's a problem with my profession. I try not to be like an actress."Don't act. Just be. You could take some lessons from Elizabeth Berkley in Showgirls. All that floppin' and twitchin' during the pool sex scene came natural to her. More pics of anti-actress Gina after the jump.
Bai Ling is the kind of female actress you like if your into pixie thin asian girls and S&M. While she blends her career with politically active movies like Red Corner to creepy exotic leather clad characters in The Crow and Crank 2: High Voltage, she will always be my go to tweeker asian actress. Ling can be seen in the cathouse drama Love Ranch opposite Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci, where she plays a kleptomaniac prostitute. Dime a dozen!A word from Bai: “I worked with a wild leopard, who bit me. But I kept on working with him, because I have a wild side. I think I was an animal in a previous life.”If it helps you to work with a leopard by thinking you were once a leopard, then by all means remain delusional. More pics of past animal Bai after the jump.
Pick a whore, any whore! The trailer for Taylor Hackford's Love Ranch has scratched, tickled, and hit the web. In it, Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci portray the real life couple that started the first legal brothel in Nevada. Needless to say, there are prostitutes in this film, gentlemen, and you better believe at some point Pesci teaches them some respect. Will it be Gina Gershon, Bai Ling, Scout Taylor-Compton, or Taryn Manning who is subject to the little man's wrath? Considering Manning has already done the whole "lady of the night thing" before in Hustle & Flow she's probably the most resilient. But don't get too cocky, Taryn. Pesci lays down pimp law a lot harder than Terrence Howard. I have the bruises to prove it. Check out the trailer after the jump. Love Ranch propositions its way into theaters June 30.
