121Carla GuginoCarla Gugino is an American actress. She is known for her roles as Ingrid Cortez in the Spy Kids trilogy, Sally Jupiter in Watchmen, Dr.

Underrated actress. Act very well in comedy as in more dramatic roles.

122Eleanor TomlinsonEleanor May Tomlinson (born 19 May 1992) is an English actress, known for her roles as Princess Isabelle in Jack the Giant Slayer (2013), Isabel Neville in The White Queen, and Demelza Poldark in Poldark.
123Salma HayekSalma Hayek is a Mexican-American film actress, producer and former model. She began her career in Mexico starring in the telenovela Teresa and starred in the film El Callejón de los Milagros for which she was nominated for an Ariel Award.

OMIGOD! I love Salma Hayek, her preformance in the movie 'Cirque Du Freak'(my favourite movie) was outstanding, she also voices in the puss N' Boots movie, not to mention she is beautiful.

Salma Hayek is a brilliant and sexy actress. If hollywierd would give her chance! She would prove everyone wrong. Just watch In the time of the Butterflies, Frida, Madiq Alley and Lonley Hearts Club.

124Susan SarandonSusan Abigail Sarandon is an American actress. She is an Academy Award and BAFTA Award winner who is also known for her social and political activism for a variety of liberal causes.

! Susan is way the hay down here? BEHIND the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Nat King Portman, and like, child actresses. Are you people the same ones who drink and then do 90 past the State Police barracks? Its not a beauty pageant... ACTING! REESE WITHERSPOON?

Totally an amazing a actress she's my compete idol

Great in Bull Durham and the best in Thelma and Louise. Been nominated 5 times for an Oscar with one win.

Great actress and activist.

She is hilarious. Especially in the Heat with Sandra Bullock - Jonerman

133Hilary DuffHilary Erhard Duff is an American actress and singer. Duff began her acting career at a young age, and quickly became labeled a teen idol as the starring titular character in the television series Lizzie McGuire.

Best one and very multitalented!
Not only can she act but can also sing very well! I love her voice as well as her acting. Fabulous in a cinderella story, material girl and so on!
Love you hilary!

A underrated and lovely beautiful actress. Should be higher in this list. VOTE FOR HER!

Best actress ever she starr in a cinderella story, cheaper by the dozen 1 and 2, the perfect man, Mateiral girl her and her sister very cool and lot more. Her lastest one is a comedy wars, ink. She the hottest best actress in the world see her film and you'd say the same.

134Jamie Lee Curtis

When I think of great acting, I think of someone that convince me they ARE the character. Jamie Lee Curtis does that. I considered Cristina Ricci, Glen Close, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sigourney Weaver, Gwyneth Paltrow. All are good, but tend toward certain genres. Jamie Lee has covered them all convincingly.

Good at horror and comedy movies.

Her facial expressions in Halloween 2 made fall even more in love with her

Her top-less scene in 'Trading Places' was one of my cinema-highlights from my teenage years.

135Halle Berry

Ridiculous that I am the first to include her on this list. Yes there is Catwoman but I blame that on the Director trying to build the movie on her beautiful rather than her talent. Otherwise she has a great resume that would surpass most people on this list, Selena Gomez, Geez, come on!

Come on people, are you rating beauty, porn or actual talent. She hasn't got it... Talent, that is.

Your hot, sexy, gorgeous, Please spend a week w/me

Anybody who can have sex with Billy Bob Thorton on screen, has to be a top actress, think about it. - RdrTech

136Catherine Deneuve

I enjoy Catherine Deneuve's work more than Meryl Streep's. She is more classy, more "artistic", very delicate, without any exaggerated ticks, besides she's such a beauty and has a unique personality. She has also taken many risks as an actress, performing roles not even Meryl Streep would've dared to do or even could do

Catherine always gives a brilliant performance. Her mere presence in a film you know you are about to witness a thing of beauty - and not just her face. It is obvious that with every great performance it is done with a big heart and an incredible mind. Bravo Catherine for continuing to surprise us with your immense range.

Catherine Deneuve in addition to being sublime is talented, class, captivating, intelligent and yet remains modest. She is a monument of the cinema and she knew how to illustrate in roles very varied in daring to take risks. Her beauty is legendary that is why she was the muse of Yves Saint Laurent or Chanel and still currently of vuitton etc
Catherine JE VOUS AIME! ;)

She is the one and only true star. Taking risks, challenging herself

After appearing in commercials and in plays, Bynes rose to prominence as a child star in the late 1990s and early 2000s on the Nickelodeon series All That and The Amanda Show. She later went on to star in several movies throughout the 2000s and the early more.

She's usually always a tomboy that you can connect with her feelings. Sydney white, What a girl wants, they're all amazing! I wish there were more movies with her in them, since I love all of her movies. Hairspray, even as a secondary character, she makes the role her own.

She's really good weird that she's all the way down here when she's the man is at the top of rom com movies on this site and she's hot / was

She is one hec of an actress. I used to watch The Amanda show everyday. I love her - Tayjackson

Obviously there are classic actresses on this list that top Maggie, but if you did a list of the current young actresses she would be at the top.

139Charlotte Rampling
140Sophia Bush

Good actress ( and sometimes very good ) but she doesn't take enough risks in her life. She seems like she wants to stay in the comfort zone. She has a great ( or had ) a great potential to become a big screen actress but for some reasons she prefers to stay in T.V.-land ( don't get me wrong, I love her in the series " Chicago PD " ). I wish she had done more cinema movies.

Sophia's great !
