Native Hawaiian actress Kelly Hu has played a lei-wearing ingénue, an adamantium-wielding mutant, a self-possessed vampire and a badass assassin. Before all that, she proudly became the first Asian American to win the title of Miss Teen USA.
Hu quickly parlayed her crown into a role on Growing Pains as an island beauty who captures Kirk Cameron’s heart during the Seaver’s Hawaiian vacation. Their on-screen kiss outraged Cameron’s love-sick cadre of teeny-bopper fans, so much so that death threats ensued.
But the budding actress wasn’t stupid—that kind of publicity works wonders. So did a full-page ad in Variety advertising her availability for representation. Once agented, her bit parts on television led to movie roles.
Hu developed a taste for playing fearsome villains with serious martial art street cred. Here she is kicking Wolverine’s ass as Lady Deathstrike:
And who could forget her bathtub scene in The Scorpion King? The lucky fountain boy got to see her boobs and vagoo.
Currently, she can be seen menacing Oliver Queen on Arrow as the super badass China White. So far, the only real nudes you’ll see of this sexy mama are from 2008’s Farmhouse, where she gets doggy-styled in a sex scene and you can barely see glimpses of her tits.
Don’t worry, we’ve also include a gallery of some Kelly Hu nudes we found around the interwebs. Their authenticity is questionable but don’t bother about that little detail. You’ll also see her looking all sexy in the Scorpion King along with our favorite collection of her hottest photos.
