There are some people who the camera just loves. Perhaps that's why many models make the leap to acting.
Famke Janssen was signed by Elite Model Management in the mid-1980s and appeared in advertisements for Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and Victoria's Secret before retiring from modeling in the early 1990s. Her breakout acting role came in 1995 as the villainous Bond girl Xenia Onatopp in "GoldenEye" and she's gone on to star in the "X-Men" series of films and both "Taken" and its sequels.
