Unfortunately, the start of 2021 is looking a whole lot like 2020. That means no whipping out the swimsuit for a winter getaway to a beachy destination. With all that extra time to kill at home, it’s the perfect opportunity to do some binge-watching. In fact, recent data from fuboTV reports that their subscribers alone watched over 389 million hours of TV in 2020. If you’re looking for some programming options, keep SI Swimsuit in mind as a number of our models have been featured in movies you can stream now. Here are five to consider:
Tyra Banks in “Coyote Ugly”
How can you forget the classic 2000 flick featuring Piper Perabo chasing her songwriting dreams? Not to mention the killer LeAnn Rimes soundtrack that came out of the film. But what you might not remember is the role Tyra Banks had in the innocently dramatic movie. In it, she shows off her bar dancing and crowd-surfing skills that intimidate lead character Violet before going on to become a lawyer. Stream on Amazon Prime.
Kate Upton in “The Other Woman”
Kate Upton showed off her comedic acting chops starring alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in the 2014 movie that teaches a cheating husband a lesson. Of course, audiences are introduced to Upton -- who plays one of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s mistresses -- while she’s on the beach donning a white bikini. She even does a little Baywatch run causing Diaz’s character to refer to her as “the perfect 10.” Stream on Amazon Prime.
Brooklyn Decker in “Just Go With It”
Like Kate Upton in “The Other Woman,” Brooklyn Decker has a couple of major swimsuit moments in the 2011 film starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. In one scene, she cools off in a Hawaiian swimming hole and later has a slow-motion exit out of the ocean. Aniston even comments, “She really wears the bikini well.” A year earlier, Decker graced the cover of SI Swimsuit, rocking a similar yellow suit to the one she wore in the movie. Stream on Amazon Prime.
Emily Ratajkowski in “Gone Girl”
Not many people can claim their first movie role was a blockbuster hit. But that’s precisely what Emily Ratajkowski did when she landed the role of Andie Fitzgerald in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” with Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. In it, she plays Affleck’s mistress leading to a whole host of problems for his character, including being accused of murder. Several months before the film came out, Ratajkowski rocked a bodypainted bikini in the Swimsuit Issue. Stream on Hulu.
Molly Sims in “The Wrong Missy”
Molly Sims obviously has no problem being in front of the camera. The 47-year-old appeared in the SI Swimsuit Issue six times -- in 2006, she wore a $30 million bikini no less -- and has showed off her acting chops in eight feature films. Most recently, she played “dream girl” Melissa in the spring 2020 Netflix film “The Wrong Missy.” What’s more, Sims got to film in Hawaii before COVID-19 travel restrictions, the same spot as her 2000 SI Swimsuit debut.
