Ah, pirates. We all know they were probably murderous raping scum with poor dental hygiene and questionable bathing habits, but we push all that aside for a romantic picture of the open sea and the wind taking the sails. Pirates are dashing! Daring! And they make any movie better, they really do. So here are my five favorites - and some of my favorite scenes in which they feature.
5.Elizabeth Swan from Pirates of the Caribbean
Keira Knightly is breathtakingly beautiful, but stick a cutlass in her hand and she's magnificent. And so damn smart!
4.Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.
What more needs to be said? He's Captain Jack Sparrow . . .savvy?
Cary Elwes has had a long and distinguished acting career, but he will forever be Westley to me.
