This actress provides examples of the following tropes:
- Action Girl: A couple of her roles later on in her career are good examples.
- Dyeing for Your Art: 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.
- Large Ham: In Batman and Robin as Poison Ivy and Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief as Medusa.
- Ms. Fanservice: In Baron Munchausen, Batman and Robin and The Avengers.
- Statuesque Stunner: At a solid 6' she can tower over most cast mates, especially in heels, as seen in The Producers where she easily has a full head over Love Interest, Matthew Broderick.
