On January 20, 1964, Sports Illustrated debuted their first ever Swimsuit Issue, with covergirl Babette March. Over the years, actresses, models and (of course) athletes would follow her lead, stripping down and throwing on swimwear for the privilege to appear in one of the most sought after magazine issues of the year.

So what happens to those who first get their start in S.I.? Well, some continue to model, others host TV shows, and a few even retire from the business completely. But then there are those who move on to the (some say inevitable) next step: acting.

Which brings us to former Sports Illustrated covergirl Brooklyn Decker. This weekend, the 25-year-old stars in not one, but two big-budget motion pictures: "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and "Battleship."

Along with Decker, lets take a look at other former S.I. swimsuit models who've appeared on screen.
