Movie Heroines Who Could Break You!

Forget Jolie, Beckinsdale, Jovovich and those glamour-puss “action stars”—we’ve put together a list of 10 heroines who could swab the floor with your candy ass.

Sigourney Weaver

The alpha and omega. No list of filmic badasses is complete without Alien’s Ripley. She’s tough-as-nails, durable, nearly impervious to sulfuric alien drool. Could Ripley beat you up? Ripley would look at you standing there, squared up to fight, and say: “Son, please.” If you tried to snatch the pebble from her palm she’d say: “You want it, grasshopper? Here, then—have it!” and stuff it up your nose, then punch you down a flight of stairs, steal your wallet and commit random, free-spirited acts of identity theft just for kicks. She’s Ripley, you’re not. Deal with it.
