She portrayed Jasmine DuBrow, the sexy and heroic girlfriend of the pilot hero played by Smith. By the way, the dynamic and sexy couple won the MTV Award for Best Kiss.

In the summer of 1997, Vivica starred in the heavy cast movie Batman and Robin. She co-starred opposite Arnold Schwarzeneger, Uma Thurman and George Clooney. She showed off her talent playing the dangerously seductive character Ms. B Haven. That same year, she also appeared as one of three sisters in the family drama Soul Food, co-starring Vanessa Williams and Nia Long.
