Although Sami Sheen wasn’t born when her mother, Denise Richards, starred in the 1998 erotic thriller “Wild Things” alongside Neve Campbell, the 19-year-old OnlyFans model recently demonstrated her ability to showcase a stunning bikini look reminiscent of Denise’s iconic character. Sporting a vibrant blue string bikini top, Sami exuded confidence in photos taken during a nighttime swim, her wet hair slicked back. Whether enjoying a beverage or playfully pressing shot glasses to her chest, she effortlessly embraced the provocative aesthetic. Adding a personal touch, Sami revealed a new light brown hair color, coincidentally matching her mother’s hair in the vintage film. The post was succinctly captioned with a simple shark emoji.

Enthusiastic supporters of the model flooded the comments section, praising the daughter of Charlie Sheen and Denise and highlighting the striking resemblance to her mother. One follower expressed, “You should be so happy. You are so blessed, don’t stop being you,” accompanied by flame and heart eye emojis. Another admirer recognized the homage to “Wild Things 1998” in her bikini choice. A third admirer couldn’t help but gush, “UR so gorgeous,” while a fourth acknowledged the new hair color, commenting, “Brunette honestly works so well for you!! Really brings out your eyes.”
Certainly, the initial image in the December 23 carousel shared by Sami strongly echoed her mother’s memorable swimsuit appearances as Kelly Van Ryan in the cult classic. The renowned cover art of the film featured the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum with wet hair in the water, alongside Neve. Denise Richards left an indelible mark wearing a distinctive blue one-piece swimsuit as she emerged from a pool in a scene that remains etched in memory. Another noteworthy scene depicted her donning a light blue bikini with a tie front while sharing the screen with Neve.
While Sami’s appearance seems to unmistakably honor her mother’s iconic film, Denise had previously expressed a desire that her daughters, all below the age of 16 at the time, wouldn’t watch it. In a 2019 interview with Yahoo Lifestyle Australia, she revealed, “I definitely did not give them a copy. I told them, ‘I don’t want you guys watching this,’ because one of my daughters brought it up to me and I was shocked.”
Denise further elaborated on her decision, emphasizing why she didn’t want her daughters, including Sami, Lola (now 18), and Eloise (12), to watch the film. She recounted, “A couple of friends had told her about it, and I just said to her, ‘I would appreciate if you didn’t watch it.’ It’s not age-appropriate, and it was a movie I did; it was a script I loved; it’s me being creative. I worked with amazing actors, and one day if you do see it, you may not agree with my decision, but that’s what mom decided to do.”
