104Sharon Stone

Ground breaking, mainstream defying role in Basic Instinct

Her acting in Casino was superb. One of the best female performances I've seen.

She was nominated for an Academy Award for Casino. She should have won. What an outstanding performance.

105Eliza Dushku

Gets many " wrong " movies. I've seen movies of her so bad because she ( a talented actress ) had to play with very bad ( and unknown for that matter ) actors and actresses ( unwatchable movies because of them ). When she gets a movie with descent co-stars you really see her talent. If she would had more worthy films, she would have been a bigger name in the movie industry. Seems that Hollywood is blind to see a talented actress like Eliza Dushku and it's really a pitty because she don't get any younger as time pass by.

Damn, she is really talented. I never truly realized until more recently.

The completely underrated, original T.V. series "Dollhouse" would have been partially empty without her unique versatility and commanding presence to lead the amazing cast.

Eliza Dushku has matured into an acting force to be reckoned with. She needs to be a leading lady in more productions. She will not disappoint.

106Rene Zellweger

Brilliant diversity character actress.

Plays such a wide repertoire of roles from Cold Mountain, to Chicago, to Bridget Jones and sells it every time! Always surprises she isn't rated higher.

Versitile and completely believable. Ability to immerse herself in roles like few others And tell me, who gets accents better the Rene?

108Sarah Michelle GellarSarah Michelle Gellar is an American actress, producer and entrepreneur. After being spotted by an agent at the age of four in New York City, she made her acting debut in the made-for-TV movie An Invasion of Privacy.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is ( even when everybody knows her ) very underrated for her acting skills. A child actress who did get her big break in " Buffy the vampire slayer ". After that she was casted in movies with her " Buffy " image, " I know what you did last summer ", " Cruel intentions ", " Scream 2 ", " Scooby-Doo 1 & 2 ", " The Grudge 1 & 2 " etc... Came her lesser known work ( but also her best outstanding performances ) in movies like " Harvard man ", " Veronika decides to die ", " Possession ", " The Air that I breathe "... It's in fact her lesser known work that proves that she's a very good ( even exeptional at times ) but underrated actress. A very pretty actress who deserves better and more recognition and attention.

She did a wonderful job as buffy the vampire slayer and she is so pretty and the movies she is doing now are so great and I love love her to death.

She's cute in some kind of funny way but she's not that great as an actress. She's just ok. On the other hand I think she has one of the most boring and annoying voice I've ever heard.

She should've win an oscar for her performance in Cruel Intentions, she is very good and very underrated

114Kristen StewartKristen Jaymes Stewart is an American actress. Born into a film-oriented family, Stewart began her acting career in 1999 with uncredited roles and a minor character appearance in several films before gaining prominence in 2002 for playing Jodie Foster's daughter in the thriller Panic Room, which garnered more.

She is beautiful, smart, amazing actress and she should be the first of the top actress. She has a great hair and a beautiful eye and she is so kind I love her so much she is the best actress in the world I love her style and all of her movies she is wonderful girl I love her so much from the first time I saw her and I know everything about her she can do everything in acting and she is like an angle her friends are so lucky to be with her and I wish i and my sister could be her friends too and I wish to her everything great and good health, she is so generous and all her movies are the best of all the other movies and she is the most suitable girl for all the movies, she was perfect in twilight and she always plays the most difficult roles perfectly and she is the future of Hollywood, you are the best.

She was born " in " the movie industry, born filthy rich with lots of connections, played since she was a child... Someone like that should be a top actress but Kristen Stewart isn't. She doesn't learn how to act ( even after all her non-stop mistakes! ). The only conclusion is that this woman has NO talent. If she still gets important roles it's because of the connections and nepotism she had and still has in that industry. This is a typical hollywood arrogant stuck up no-talent ( and she will never be a talented top actress ) who simply can't fade away because of her notoriety in the movie business. Hollywood's spended " up in smoke money " for this " actress ".

I think she's different that other actresses. She's on a long way to the stars and I hope she makes it. She's a good actress and I love her roles from all the films she's been it. Keep doing such a great job Kristen! - tinabirk

People who think she should be number 1 have issues

116Zooey Deschanel

When I saw this movie every time I think of her my heart starts pounding
She's amazing

117Jane FondaJane Fonda is an American actress, writer, political activist, former fashion model and fitness guru.

Never understood the so-called " traitor " scandal. She was a political activist against the Vietnam war. When she went over there she was forced by the present " media " for a photo. She was put in a out of order enemy war-vehicle behind a gun pointing at American targets ( she didn't had the knowledge of or clue in what vehicle she was put! ) and then suddenly it's like she was the one who had the idea to point at American targets ( she did a mistake but at the time she was not aware of it because the media had to take the pictures and nobody told her what she was really doing ). After that, when the pictures came out, it was the media again who wrote how she's against America ( because she's against the war and the descisons by the government ) and therefore against the ones who are fighting over there for their country. Like she was a pro-communist giving the Vietcong right to fight against Americans? All those media lies made her popularity in the movie business as an actress ...more

Actually she wrote in her biography that she was hooked on amphetamines and that she couldn't act without them ( amphetamines were the diet pills of the 60's, 70's and 80's ). So it's not that she's acting " like " but because she's on it. Explains her Always fast talking in her European movies.

Maybe not the best actress in the world ( and yes, she had an addiction for amphetamine dietpills in the sixties ) but movies like " Barbarella ", " Klute ", " They shoot horses, don't they? ", " Cat Ballou ", " Coming home ", " The China syndrome ", " On golden pound "... etc are all timeless classics. Meaning that this actress have contributed a lot in the history of the 7th art.

One of the biggest traitors of all time

118Lucy Hale

Can't believe she's not higher in the list Lucy is a brilliant actress and has got one hell of a caerer ahead of her, all you have to do a watch her in pretty little liars to see that. In a few years she will be a mega star.

I LOVE HER! I hope once she leaves Abc Family when PLL (best show ever) is over that she'll pull a Shailene Woodley and become a mega star!
