15 Beautiful Women Who Played Cleopatra

This is a totally new one to me but did you know that one of the most played characters in the history of cinema is Cleopatra?  We’re looking at well over 50 renditions of the famous Egyptian goddess.   I can only imagine how many times she’s been depicted on stage and not to mention symbolized in film.

I honestly had no idea.   And we’re talking years and years of this.   Dating back to the 30s women have been portraying this character in a number of different ways and fashions.

I decided to list 15 that were exceptionally good looking.  Enjoy the gallery after the jump…
