After her performance in the sexy “Pretty Woman” bed scenes with Richard Gere, Shelley Michelle became one of the most famous body doubles in the movie industry. She was also the body double of Kim Basinger in “Ice Cold Passion” (1992) and Barbra Streisand in “The Lord of the Tides” (1991). The hot curves of the 1.74 meter tall blonde are also really impressive.
Your well-toned legs are the result of years of professional dance training and should be insured for around one million dollars, writes iMDb. Michelle later appeared in a few minor film roles herself.
