The 5 Worst Models Turned Actresses
February 23, 2011
It's understandable why supermodels strive for a career as an actress; with luck, they get paid more for big roles and their careers have a longer shelf-life, unlike models who are often deemed "too old" by the time they hit 25. While there are abundant success stories of models turned actors, here are the five most notable failed attempts.

#5 - Cindy Crawford

Anyone remember 1995's Fair Game starring William Baldwin and Cindy Crawford? No? That's what I thought. The action thriller revolves around Crawford's character, a lawyer named Kate McQueen, being chased after by a renegade squad and the cop, played by Baldwin, that tries to protect her. The critical consensus: the film is crap, and though some generously pointed out that Cindy Crawford's looks were the best part of the movie, they did not fail to also mention that her acting chops were also the worst part.

#4 - Gisele Bündchen

For the life of me, I still can't fathom why 2004's Taxi was made, or why its producers thought tossing Jimmy Fallon, Queen Latifah, a taxi cab, and bank-robbing Brazilian chicks together would make for a compelling, hilarious comedy. To add insult to injury, it has Victoria Secret model Gisele Bündchen in one of the worst performances I have ever seen.

#3 - Tyra Banks

Even more embarrassing than Tyra Banks’ short-lived career as a singer ("Shake Ya Body" never fails to induce a shudder), and the general ridiculousness of America's Next Top Model is her appearance in a 2000 Made for TV Disney movie with future trainwreck Lindsay Lohan. In Life-Size, Tyra plays Eve, a Barbie doll who comes to life through a magical spell and becomes best buds with the 12 year-old Lindsay. Throw in an original song and dance number, and you'll be wishing magic could help you unsee what has just been seen.

#2 - Estella Warren

While no one can deny the allure of Estella Warren's looks, her acting career has proven to be a disaster. When the best of your IMDB credits are a lackluster Planet of the Apes remake and an unsuccessful 2003 comedy Kangaroo Jack, in which a trio of friends chase after a CGI kangaroo that stole their $50K, you know your career has failed before it had ever truly begun.

#1 - Kathy Ireland

Three words: Alien from LA. That is all you need to know.
