81Claire Danes

She's really underrated. Look at the movie " Broken palace " where she plays alongside Kate Beckinsale and you'll understand why she's underrated. A outstanding performance that makes lots of actresses ranked higher in this list shameful.

So beautiful! And her legs are the best legs in Hollywood. I love her.

Acting beautifully on stage and in movies! Very talented!

82Kate BeckinsaleKathrin Romary "Kate" Beckinsale (born 26 July 1973) is a British actress. After some minor television roles, she made her film debut in Much Ado About Nothing (1993) while still a student at the University of Oxford. She then appeared in British costume dramas such as Prince of Jutland (1994), Cold ...read more.

An actress with wide acting skills. Very versatile in her roles. She surely deserves a higher rank in this list.
Very attractive and a lovely woman in real life. VOTE FOR HER. She needs to get above a lot of actresses in this list that aren't talented as she is.

I think she is the best looking actress of all time. She is also a very good actress and can play everything as seen in Underworld, Pearl Harbor and Click.

i love her. shes beautiful and a great actress

I can't wait to see the new " Underworld " movie that will come out in 2017. Kate Beckinsale is such a talented actress that I'm sure the movie will not be a let-down.

83Bette Midler

love love love the rose ,only this lady couldve played her . why was i only 6 at the time

No! She shouldn't be on the list. Her best talent is being gutsy and able to shock people. But anyone can show boobs.

She can be funny, serious, dramatic...I.E. the Rose, Beaches, First Wives Club

Loved Bette Midler in Beaches. But where on earth is Barbara Hershey?

84Gloria Swanson

the one and only Norma Desmond! - redseagrass

You can't tell gloria swanson and norma desmond apart after seeing the movie.

Norma will stick in my mind forever. She was so brave to play that part

85Mia WasikowskaMia Wasikowska is an Australian actress best known for starring as Alice Kingsleigh in Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

It really annoys me when people are comparing her to Gwyneth Paltrow ( there's maybe a very little look-a-like ). She's actually thousand times a better and talented actress than Gwyneth Paltrow. Should move up.

Very underrated and highly talented actress. Movies like " Stoker ", " Jane Eyre ", " Madame Bovary ", " Alice in wonderland "... proves how talented and diverse this actress is. An actress who dares to take risks and who succeeds in her performances. This actress needs to move up!

It's amazing that Mia hasn't been in the limelight as much as other actresses of her ilk. Even Meryl Streep has been championing Mia.

Quintessential Australian Rose!

86Shailene WoodleyShailene Diann Woodley is an American actress. She came to mainstream attention for her role as Amy Juergens in the ABC Family television series The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

She is beyond excellence although I hear allot of crap about her! She is beautiful and amazing and I love her acting! I will always cry in the Fault in our Stars. You can literally feel the emotion pouring out of the screen! She is amazing and should never stop being so.

Oh! She is an amazing actress do you see her performance in the Fault in our Stars in the scene when she heard the news of death & cry it's just so real she perfectly able to feel the pain. A very few actress has this type of high performance skills

She is the best in the dram movies and she has really kind and beautiful face more than any actresses in the world

It may soon be the competitor of Kristen Stewart

87Anna Farris

She seems to be a very funny woman ( in a good way ) in real life ( just look for any interview of her ). Maybe that's why she's so talented in comedies ( " Scary movie 1, 2, 3 and 4 ", " Just friends ", " mom " the T.V. series... ). I didn't see much of her in serious roles ( " Lost in translation "... ) but what I saw were convincing enough. A talented actress without a doubt. Just want to see her in more serious roles.

88Emma RobertsEmma Rose Roberts is an American actress and singer. After small roles in films such as Blow, she rose to prominence with her role as Addie Singer in the Nickelodeon television series Unfabulous, for which she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award and six Young Artist Awards.

Her latest movie " Nerve " is a must-see. An actress who's actually is becoming better and better with every new movie she make and her acting skills are improving from day to day. In other words, A REAL ACTRESS! I wouldn't be surprised if she win in the future a well deserved oscar. One of the best upcoming actresses of the new generation. Emma Roberts is awesome and also beautiful.

Emma Roberts is one of the most talented actresses of the young generation. Outstanding performances in movies like " We're the Millers ",
" 4,3,2,1 ", " Nancy Drew ", " Lymelife "... This actress can play very diverse characters and dare to take risks. Many people accuse her of nepotism because of her famous aunt but the truth is that this girl is more talented than her aunt ( she's more versatile and subtle in her acting skills ). And without a doubt more beautiful. Should be higher on this list. Too many overrated actresses and less talented than Emma Roberts are ranked higher. Why should she be ranked lower than all those actresses.

Very talented, beautiful and very humble and adorable in real life. She's not a stuck-up actress because her aunt is famous.

Move her up! Everybody agrees that she's one of the most talented actresses of today!

89Diane LaneDiane Lane is an Oscar nominated American actress. Born and raised in New York City, Lane made her screen debut in George Roy Hill's 1979 film A Little Romance, starring opposite Sir Laurence Olivier.

Way underrated. A very good actress who doesn't always get the best roles but gives a solid performance every time out. A real pro, and easy on the eye never hurts.

Shes a hero! I adore diane lane, shes an amazing actress number 1 man!

Great actreess with intense feelings

Always excellent

90Julie Walters

Julie Walters is a fantastic actress. I especially loved her performances in Mamma Mia and Harry Potter. She can play any role. A brilliant actress.

91Gwyneth Paltrow

I'm her biggest fan of all time! Basically I have watched all of her movies! My favorite was definitely Shakespeare in love... For those people out there who hates her or whatsoever.. They are all just being stupid and jealous of her.. Talk about best actress... Look who owned an oscar?!

She is the best Hollywood actress of all time... I watch most of her movie... And my favourites are Shakespeare in Love, Great Expectation, Country Strong, Iron man 1 2, Sylvia, Sliding Door, A Perfect Murder, Se7en, Emma... Just love all her film.. Hope that she will make more fantastic film in the future!

93Peyton ListPeyton Roi List is an American actress and model. List is best known for playing Emma Ross on the Disney Channel comedy series Jessie and Holly Hills in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film series.

I thought that she would a least be in the fist 10 or 20 because she is pretty, has a stunning voice and has gleaming blue eyes, no supervise that she was good at being Holly Hills in Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Peyton List is one of prettiest and sexiest girls in the world. She so great in the T.V. Show Jessie if they made film about her or that she got the main role it could be a hit and put her up in the top 3 - bert631

95Heather O'Rourke

Not a real actress? She died when she was 12 years old. Best known for the Poltergeist movies ( she did a few other movies ). This little girl had a potential but she was taken away too soon from us.

Who cares? She did five lines in her whole movie career. Doesn't belong here. Tragic death for sure but this is a list about best actresses.

97Emma Thompson

The best for sure!! Actress,screenriter, Oscar Winner, great movies, activist, funny, talented, charming. Should be #1!!

Sense and Sensiblity, Harry Potter, Treasure Planet, The Remains of the Day, Much Ado About Nothing, and Howards End to name a few. - heather

Emma Thompson is one of the best actresses we have ever had. She was fantastic in Harry Potter, Nanny McPhee, Love Actually and Howard's End as well as many more. A brilliant actress.

98Sophia Loren

An earthy, passionate, sexy, actress with raw beauty and the ability to bring both humor and tragedy to the screen.

99Megan FoxMegan Denise Fox is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the Hope & Faith television sitcom.

Sweet! My favorite sexy, brunette Actress in the world. She's awesome, nice, smart, and hot. She did great in 2 Transformer movies, Jennifer's Body, and Jonah Hex. If she played in the movie based on a comic book called "Fathom" after having a baby, she'll be on the top of the list. Keep up the good work, Megan Fox!

She can't act. This whole list is supposed to be for judging acting talent, not sex appeal and looks. For almost every single actress on this list, their looks seem to be the main competitive factor and I find that ridiculous. Every comment has to mention their physical qualities and their attractiveness. Sure, good looks appeal to people. But it doesn't have much to do with actual talent and natural ability.
I do think this girl is gorgeous. Was she born to act? No. Is she a top actress anywhere? Certainly not. Mediocre at best. But she does not belong on any "Best Talent" list... sure, judge away on her looks, on a "Best Looking" list. But that is not what this particular list is for and it's getting boring that people think like that.
No one in the world would consider her for a major part in a movie if she looked totally different. Maybe like an extra, like a dead zombie on the ground covered in blood... if she went after the part really hard.

Really a weird choice. Never I would have thought to introduce her in a best actress category! But if her talent is debatable, her beauty isn't! And she rocked the house as a Young, clumsy and shameless starlet in HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS AND ALIENATE PEOPLE!

I love her she is so beautiful. She comes in top ten of the most beautiful women

100Liv TylerLiv Rundgren Tyler is an American actress and former child model. She is the daughter of Aerosmith's lead singer, Steven Tyler, and model Bebe Buell.

Whats not to love about Liv, expect she can sing but does not need to. More movies please

Amazing grace and beauty. She must select her roles to better allow her talent to shine.

She has literal true beauty and grace. I can see why she was cast as Arwen in the lotr franchise as she looks as beautiful and acts as amazing as an elf. She should definitely keep acting because most of the people I know absolutely love her.
