October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you love a woman, be it your wife, sister, girlfriend, mother or aunt, encourage her in the least awkward way possible to get a mammogram. Meanwhile, in anticipation of NBCAM, we’ve anointed the last week of September NBAW, National Breast Awareness Week. To celebrate, we’re treating you to the best celeb-breasts to ever come down the pike, from Amurri to Vergara. Of course, it’s about much more than sheer size. It’s also shape, firmness and how well they fit the woman’s body. It also doesn’t hurt if she’s good at flaunting ’em. Enjoy.

Eva Amurri

Sadly for us, former MLS player and current ESPN MLS color commentator Kyle Martino took this Susan Sarandon progeny and Californication actress off the market in December of 2010.

Monica Bellucci

Thankfully for the world’s men, Bellucci decided to become a model and actress instead of pursuing her original passion—law.

Scarlett Johansson

Johansson was named the Harvard University Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year in February of 2007. Whatever that means.

Eva Green

This atheist, whose mother was born in Algeria, considers herself a nerd. We couldn’t possibly disagree more.

Gabrielle Union

After getting her degree in sociology from UCLA, Union needed a way to pay off her student loans. A modeling agency came calling and the rest is history.

Christina Hendricks

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons attributed a 10 percent increase in breast implant procedures to Hendricks’ popularity.

Jayne Mansfield

Mansfield is reported to have had affairs with both cool Kennedy brothers, as well as Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey. The last is said to have placed a curse on her soon before her untimely death. Even Sophia Loren—whom we’ll meet later—can’t resist sneaking a peek.

Jessica Simpson

Simpson claims to have saved her virginity until marriage. No word yet on whether anyone actually believes this.


When not in a wig, she’s called Cassandra Peterson. No matter what you call her, you’ll see her driving around in a 1958 T-Bird hard top with over $7,000 in custom alterations.

Salma Hayek

The daughter of a Mexican oil executive, Hayek used the name “Stella Adler” when she first came to Hollywood and had difficulty learning English due to her dyslexia.

Tura Satana

After being gang raped by five men, Satana learned martial arts and spent several years tracking her assailants down to deliver revenge.

Pam Grier

Quentin Tarantino originally cast Grier to play Bonnie in the final segment of Pulp Fiction, but relented, finding it implausible that his character would be married to such a strong woman. He later made her the star of Jackie Brown.

Katey Sagal

Before she was Peg Bundy or Gemma Teller Morrow, Sagal was a member of the Harlettes, Bette Midler’s backup singers. She also voices the badass one-eyed chick in Futurama.

Rosario Dawson

Around the age of 9, Dawson’s mother and her husband moved the family to a squat on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. She’s come a long way since.

Sophia Loren

While the quote “Everything you see, I owe to spaghetti” is often attributed to Loren, she claimed in a 2009 CBS News Sunday interview that she never said it.

Thandie Newton

Newton was originally slated to be in Charlie’s Angels, opting instead to appear in It Was An Accident. Her role went to Lucy Liu.

Jessica Pare

Pare learned how to play bass for her role in the vampire comedy Suck.

Jennifer Hudson

“Former American Idol contestant” goes before the names of many pop singers these days, but no other has won an Oscar— or dropped a ton of weight while keeping as much up top—as Miss Hudson.

Dolly Parton

Do we really need to say anything here? No. 

Sofia Vergara

A natural blonde, Vergara dyes her hair brown to look more stereotypically Latina for the big and small screens. Wait, she has hair??
