Katie Holmes, The Kennedys

Asylum Entertainment

Ever hear the saying, "The man is the head, but the woman is the neck, and she can turn the head any way she wants"? (Thank you, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, for that one.)

With that said, it's only fair that during these political conventions, we take a moment to steer our attention away from the presidential candidates (just for a second!) and take a moment to remember some of our first ladies.

Or at least, actresses who have played them in film or TV (Hi, Katie Holmes, Emma Thompson and Maya Rudolph!).

Check out our Fictional First Ladies gallery to see some of the greatest portrayals from Hollywood's leading ladies!
