Tropes relating to Denise Richards' works:
- Dawson Casting: She has played a high school student four times (Tammy and the T-Rex, Starship Troopers, Wild Things and Drop Dead Gorgeous), and she played all of those roles when she was in her twenties.
- Older Than They Look: Not only when she played high school students, but she played the mother of the protagonist on Twisted when she was 42, but she looked more like she was in her early thirties. And today, even at the age of 50 she still looks as she's in her early 40s.
- Underage Casting: She was 28 when she played Dr. Christmas Jones in The World Is Not Enough, who is supposed to be a nuclear physicist. Having a doctorate in nuclear physics at that age is plausible (Gordon Freeman was 27), but working overseas as a project lead isn't.
