Aussie Elle Macpherson was already a famous supermodel when she started appearing in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in the mid-1980s. Her appearances in the issues, including a record-setting five times on the cover, made her an even bigger star. After an appearance in Woody Allen's 1990 movie "Alice," she appeared nude in 1994's "Sirens" and later added more roles in movies such as "If Lucy Fell," "The Mirror Has Two Faces," "Batman & Robin" and "The Edge."
