So what does it take to be a bad ass? Well, you can choose your set of weapons from knives to guns or your kung fu skills but that doesn’t make you a bad ass.
The movie characters on this list made it to our favorites because they show strength and endurance, not just physically but in their spirit and of course, their womanhood. These ladies have been through a hell of a lot, and they aren’t going to stop for nobody. They are females you can look up to but not everyone has what it takes to be like them. Let’s see who these gorgeous ladies are.
Uma Thurman as Beatrix Kiddo a.k.a. “The Bride”
Uma Thurman plays the assassin who wakes herself up from a comma and avenges the loss of her child and kills everyone in the way. Yes, it is truly a graphic way to be a bad ass but hey, they effed up her life real bad. Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2 are truly remarkable action-packed movies with a hot female lead to match.
Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs
Starring in one of the greatest movies of all time, Jodie Foster plays the intelligent and passionate FBI agent who works alongside a psychopathic cannibal to solve the mysteries laid out by a vicious serial killer. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? I mean, how many beautiful ladies are willing to interview a cannibal in the hopes of catching an elusive and equally dangerous serial killer?
Cate Blanchett as Queen Elizabeth
When the gorgeous Cate Blanchett said the line, “I am not your Elizabeth. I am no man’s Elizabeth. And if you think to rule, you are a mistake”, man, do we believe her. She puts us right into our place with her regal beauty and graceful yet powerful pronunciation.
Whoopi Goldberg as Celie Johnson in The Color Purple
You may not be familiar with the movie The Color Purple but it and the book it was derived from are classics and have portrayed women empowerment in such a dramatic and heartfelt way. It goes to show that compassion is also strength, and how women can find their voice and strength in spite of everything. Now isn’t that inspiring?
Oprah also stars in this fantastic film. You should watch it.
Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
We all know her from the phenomenal book and the movie, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and we can all agree in saying that she is one tough character. Rooney Mara’s gorgeous face was unrecognizable as she transformed into Lisbeth’s character that is filled with strength that endures stereotypes in gender.
Now, is that a bad ass list or what? So, have you figured out what it takes to be a bad ass? All I can say is, it has to come from within. Agree?
