The Woman Who Inspired Jessica Rabbit Is Even More Seductive In Real Life.

Remember Jessica Rabbit, the red-haired siren from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Well, as it turns out, she was based off a real person: Vicki Dougan was a 1950's siren that was just as sexy (and just as controversial) as Jessica Rabbit, only in real life.

Pop culture history have often surmised that Rabbit was based off of Veronica Lake, but in actuality, it was more than likely Vicki Dougan. Known for her curvaceous figure and her affinity for backless gowns, the resemblance between Dougan and Rabbit is pretty undeniable. And just like Rabbit, Dougan was a delightfully controversial figure in society at the time. See her photos, and more of her story, below.

Dougan caused further controversy when she posed for Playboy. Despite the fact that this basically put an end to her career, it's likely these images that inspired the iconic Jessica Rabbit animations.
