List of sexy celebrities and movie stars who have taken it off on film. There is a long, proud history of hot strippers in movies and television. In fact, some of the most infamous and celebrated nude and erotic scenes in film and TV history are set inside strip clubs. Several series have even made strip clubs a central location, from "The Sopranos" famed Bada Bing club to Orlando's from "The Wire." This list collects photos of some of the hottest stripper performances in film and TV history, from some of the sexiest actresses of today and yesteryear.

For modern audiences, there are really 3 stripper performances that - good or bad - have been elevated to an iconic level. The first is Demi Moore's turn in Striptease, an adaptation of Carl Hiassen's novel about a struggling single parent whose temporary stripper job leads her into a web of political corruption. The film became notable mainly because of Moore's record-shattering $12.5 million salary for the role - at that time, the most an actress had ever been paid to make a single film. Elizabeth Berkley also famously starred in "Showgirls" only one year earlier for director Paul Verhoeven. This role in the notorious movie - which had developed a considerable cult following in the ensuing years - totally upended the actress' previous teen starlet image from years starring on "Saved by the Bell," and essentially killed her career. And speaking of dead careers, Lindsay Lohan's turn as a stripper suffering some sort of mysterious split-personality/amnesia disorder in "I Know Who Killed Me" also stopped her career dead in its tracks. These are without a doubt some of the hottest strippers to ever grace the silver screen! Who do you think are the sexiest strippers in movie history?

There are two things you need to know about the 2009 film Powder Blue: 1) It marks Patrick Swayze's last time on the big screen, 2) It features Jessica Biel working the pole in black lacy lingerie, a white corset, a sassy pink bobbed wig, and all sorts of crazy gravity-defying positions.

Dish Dogs (2000) is a direct-to-video rom-com that stars Matthew Lillard. Is that all you need to know about it? Well, yes, except that Shannon Elizabeth is also on the cover of the DVD in a black bikini. She does a James Bond-style striptease in tall boots, and while she doesn't show any more of her naked body than she did in American Pie (because there's nothing left), there is something to be said for leaving a little to be desired.

Looks like Jessie Spano was right: She never would get into Stanford. After Elizabeth Berkley disappeared from Bayside, she popped up on the big screen in the one movie that I lied to my friends and said I'd seen years before I actually saw it... Showgirls (1995). But holy lord, what a movie. It's got feathers, fire, glitter, Gina Gershon, Kyle MacLachlan, betrayal, violence, menstruation, and insanely over-the-top swimming pool sex: in short, everything I look for in a film. Rent it today. Makes such a great drinking game that the DVD literally came with shot glasses.
