Fully-clothed and yet still hot. Except it's a terrible, terrible lie.

Julianne Moore as Amber Waves in Boogie Nights (1997)

A scene so hot, even the camera can't handle it.

Jude Law as Graham in The Holiday (2011)

Fearless lip twitching, bruh.

Keira Knightley as Anna Karenina in Anna Karenina (2012)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (7)

The joy of an affair of aristocratic proportions is all right there on the lovely Ms. Knightley's face as the eponymous Russian socialite steps out on her husband with the wealthy Count Vronsky.

Jennifer Aniston as Grace Connelly in Bruce Almighty

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (8)

Bruce is granted all of God's endless abilities and one of his first acts is giving his girl a heavenly arousal? Sounds about right.

via

Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho (2000)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (9)

Image via Complex Original

As the poster boy for vanity and materialism, it would be out of character for Patrick Bateman to give a single f*ck about whether his partner is enjoying herself, not when he could buy tickets to his own gun show and make org*smic faces at himself.

Famke Janssen as Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye (1995)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (10)

It's the rare vixen who flips the script and rocks James Bond's world, but what the f*ck do you expect from a woman named Xenia Onatopp, of the boa constrictor-like leg wrap and killer cowgirl.

Mena Suvari as Angela Hayes in American Beauty (1999)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (11)

The fantasyof Mena Suvari in a tub filled with rose petals is iconic at this point, and deservedly so—this is the face that launched an Academy Award-winning mid-life crisis.

via

Jason Biggs as Jim Levenstein in American Pie (1999)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (12)

A classic example of o-face as stank face.

via

Laura San Giacomo as Angeline in Under Suspicion (1991)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (13)

Image via Complex Original

Under Suspicionwas largely panned upon it's early '90s release, but Laura San Giacomo should've earned a Best Actress nod for her performance in this scene alone.

Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity and Keanu Reeves as Neo in The Matrix Reloaded (2003)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (14)

Image via Complex Original

Reloaded's14-minute action centerpiece is its chief watercoolermoment, but the mass orgyrave scene in the beginning felt just as long. Why? It was inter-cut with Neo and Trinity making this expression at each other, while, ahem, keeping up with the beat.

via

Reese Witherspoon as Annette Hargrove in Cruel Intentions (1999)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (15)

Image via Complex Original

The first two acts of this movie are spent building anticipation for Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Philippe) to um, "deflower," Reese Witherspoon's innocent Annette, and come go time no one gets let down. Thankfully, by that time in the film their relationship is more loving, less predatory.

via

Mila Kunis as Jamie in Friends with Benefits (2011)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (16)

Image via Complex Original

There was no way Mila and Justin were going to keep things casual for much longer after he had her reacting like this.

via

Naomi Watts as Edith Evans in We Don't Live Here Anymore (2004)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (17)

Image via Complex Original

Infidelity is the name of Naomi Watts' character's game in this early aughts couples drama, which finds her burning bridges, endangering marriages, and yes, getting busy on a tree. We imagine a position like that would be rather uncomfortable, but if it is, her expression isn't giving it away.

via

Diane Lane as Connie Sumner in Unfaithful (2004)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (18)

Image via Complex Original

Unfaithful is, without question, one of the steamiest films of all time. Although Diane and Olivier's characters do the deed many times and in many places—movie theater, bathroom stall—theirchemistry's never crazier than the first time they get it on and poppin'.

via

Chris Evans as Syd in London (2005)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (19)

Image via Complex Original

Chris Evans (playing Syd) spends the majority of the film doing co*ke trying to win his girlfriend London (Jessica Biel) back, and when they finally make-up, dude's so satisfied he looks like he's been on E the whole time.

via

Sharon Stone as May Munro in The Specialist (1994)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (20)

Image via Complex Original

During the late '80s and early '90s, intense yet softcore sex scenes must have been a mandate in Sharon Stone's contract. Say what you will about her talent in general, but when it came time to really "perform," she never mailed it in.

via

Demi Moore as Molly Jensen in Ghost (1990)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (21)

Image via Complex Original

Demi Moore's classic performance during this scene is why everyone thinks pottery is a good idea.

via

Maggie Gyllenhaal as Lee Holloway in Secretary (2002)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (22)

Image via Complex Original

In which Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader engage in a BDSM relationship. Weird is an understatement, but we're just grateful she was "permitted" to make facial reactions in the first place.

via

Blake Lively as O in Savages (2012)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (23)

Image via Complex Original

Blake Lively's character's day-to-day in Savagesconsists of her gettingstaying high and catching attention from her two best buds, which is to say, she wears the expression seen above for most of the film.

via

Vanessa Hudgens as Candy and Ashley Benson as Brit in Spring Breakers (2013)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (24)

Image via Complex Original

As Alien's (James Franco) piano interlude details, two of the spring breakers just couldn't hang. The two that stayed? Wholeheartedly about that life, and potentially his soul mates. The trio's poolside consummation is just as hot and weird as the scenario dictates.

via

Christina Applegate as Courtney Rockcliffe in The Sweetest Thing (2002)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (25)

Image via Complex Original

The bad news: Christina Applegate's character is just putting on a performance for a randy passerby. The fist pumping gives it away.

via

Angelina Jolie as Jane Smith and Brad Pitt as John Smith in Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (26)

Image via Complex Original

Shooting up the house and at each other is the foreplay the Smiths need to jump-start sex. And seeing as the production led to an actual affair and subsequent relationship, we're inclined to believe Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt didn't have to act too hard to make this scene believable.

via

Greg Pitts as Drew in Office Space (1999)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (27)

Image via Complex Original

The o-face by which all others are measured.

via

Natalie Portman as Nina Sayers in Black Swan (2010)

25 Famous Celebrity O-Faces (28)

Really, what can you say?
