!!This actress provides examples of the following tropes:

* ActionGirl: A couple of her roles later on in her career are good examples.
* DyeingForYourArt: From the usual changing color of her hair, using her own voice for musical roles (uncommon for non-singing actresses), to the extremes such as doing full nude scenes, learning martial arts for months, and doing her own stunts.
* LargeHam: In ''Batman and Robin'' as Poison Ivy and ''Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief'' as Medusa.
* MsFanservice: In ''Baron Munchausen'', ''Batman and Robin'' and ''The Avengers''.
* StatuesqueStunner: At a solid 6' she can tower over most cast mates, especially in heels, as seen in ''TheProducers'' where she easily has a full head over LoveInterest, MatthewBroderick.
