The Scene-Stealers of 'The Fighter'

While Christian Bale and Melissa Leo are racking up award wins for "The Fighter," there's other actors that people can't stop talking about. Everyone I talk to about this movie is madly in love with the seven sisters of the characters Dicky Eklund and Micky Ward--the big-haired, trash-talking, ready to brawl babes that make up the Greek Chorus, in a sense, of the film. First of all, after having to bring the ugly styles of the 80s to life on screen, how hot are these women in real life? I offer into evidence, Exhibit A from this week's SAG Awards red carpet:

Yes, they clean up well. (L to R: Jenna Lamia, Melissa Meekin, Erica McDermott, Kate O'Brien, and Bianca Hunter.) More after the jump.

If you want to know more about the ladies and the actors who played them, check out Vulture's primer on the sisters. You'll learn some fun facts--yes, the second one from the right is Conan O'Briend sister and Jill Quiqq isn't present at the SAG Awards because she was recently arrested for burglary. There's also a video interview available here with Hikari Takano and five of the sisters. Look, even Quentin Tarantino's a fan!
