  6. Elizabeth Berkley - Showgirls - Berkley has been mocked by tabloids and comedic junkies for her role in Showgirls. I can't imagine how many rotten apples this movie scored but Berkley was trying to shed her good girl image from Saved by the Bell. I guess it worked!
  7. Demi Moore - Striptease - Moore was paid 12.5 million for her role in this film. Maybe you can figure out why?
