Venezuelan-born model-turned-actress Patricia Velazquez has been showcasing her exotic beauty in fashion and men's mags for years--we're particularly fond of her dripping-wet appearances in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Her skinematic contributions, however, were unremarkable until her appearance in the blockbuster action-adventure flick The Mummy (1999), starring Brendan Fraser. Patricia's cocoa-brown eyes and feline grace were put to excellent use in her role as the Pharoah's adulterous wife, Anck Su Namun. Though she didn't appear in the altogether, she did wear an outfit consisting mostly of a thin coat of gold body paint that'll have you drooling in your lap and crying for your Mummy. A sequel was inevitable, and, lucky for skinophiles, Patricia's role in The Mummy Returns (2001) was expanded to include a swimsuit-clad fight sequence with curvy co-star Rachel Weisz. Since she seems to wear less clothing in each film she makes, here's hoping she'll loosen the bandages a tad in her next go-round.
