Check out Swedish actress Naoomi Repace rocking out with the Rolling Stones in the video for their new track, Doom & Gloom. She’s better known for being incredible as Lisbeth Salander in the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, but her Rolling Stones performance is equally as Oscar-worthy.
Naoomi takes on a number of different personas in the 4 minute video, including a Snoop Dogg Starsky & Hutch-style pimp (complete with killer sideburns) and topless prostitute. She even dances around as front man, Mick Jagger in a pair of leather trousers, mic in hand. She definitely makes the rock band – who are set to celebrate their fiftieth anniversary this weekend with two gigs at O2 – look rather tame.
Naoomi’s not the first A-lister to cameo in a music video. In fact, some have even used an appearance with their favourite artist to catapult themselves to stardom. Check out these celebrity crooners…
1. Stephen Dorff in Britney Spears ‘Everytime’
He may have starred in countless movies, but it’s that bath scene that’s etched in our memories. Insert bad joke about him saving us from drowning any day here.
2. Scarlett Johansson in Justin Timberlake’s ‘What Goes Around’
‘I see your Dorff, and I raise you Johansson’, said Justin Timberlake to ex Britney Spears when Scarlett Johansson played his love interest in this video. Well we imagine so anyway.
3. Christina Hendricks in Everclear’s ‘One Hit Wonder’
Long before the girdles of Mad Men, Christina Hendricks was a short-haired grunge girl in dungarees. Very on trend.
4. Mena Suvari in Wheatus’ ‘Teenage Dirtbag’
The girl we all wanted to be when we were fifteen and growing up in a small town.
5. Natalie Portman in Devendra Banhart’s ‘Carmensita’
A strong contender for weirdest video ever, even without Natalie Portman’s bizarre Jasmine from Aladdin cameo. All makes sense when you realise Devendra was her boyfriend. Actually, no it really doesn’t.
6. Katie Holmes in The Fly’s ‘Got You Where I Want You’
Pre Dawson’s Creek, Katie Holmes spent her days pushing boys in bad chinos and ill-fitting baseball jackets off cliffs. Who knew?
7. Christopher Walken in Fat Boy Slim’s ‘Weapon of Choice’
Absolutely brilliant dad dancing from beginning to end.
8. Megan Fox in Eminem ft. Rihanna’s ‘Love the Way You Lie’
Megan Fox, Eminem and Rihanna all in one video. We’re surprised the celebrity world didn’t implode.
9. Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith’s 'Cryin’'
It’s no surprise that Liv Tyler has appeared in Aerosmith videos. Her dad is the front man after all. But what about this gem featuring a Clueless-era Alicia Silverstone?
10. Angelina Jolie in Meatloaf’s ‘Rock & Roll Dreams Come True’
Somewhat of a music video veteran, Angelina has appeared with The Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz and, way back in the very early ‘90s, Meatloaf. Surely she should have a VMA by now?
