With her dark brown hair and olive complexion, Lena Olin looks more like a native of the Mediterranean Sea than the North Sea. Truth is, this Swedish splendor got her start from Ingmar Bergman, the director who championed fellow Scandinavian sirens like Liv Ullman and Pernilla August. One of Lena's earliest roles was a short film called Glasmästarna (1986), or The Glaziers, in which she climbed in and out of a bubble bath, exposing both front and back sides for the delight of Swedish skinsters. It's sure to heat up the frozen tundra. Her breakthrough role came with The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988), in which she let Juliette Binoche snap photos of her disrobed rump. After receiving a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her role as a young temptress in Enemies: A Love Story (1989), another nude revue, she appeared in several less critically acclaimed American features. Following that dry spell, Lena got some well-deserved exposure as the Devil-worshiping temptress who stripped bare in Roman Polanski's The Ninth Gate (1999). She even made it to the boob tube, playing Jennifer Garner's double-crossing, KGB-card-carrying, long-thought-dead-in-a-car-crash mom on the hit series Alias. But for the best and most bizarre view of Lena, visit Romeo Is Bleeding (1994), in which she played a kinky Russian assassin whose favorite pastime is wrapping her thighs around Gary Oldman's head. That's quite a face off.
