81Tyler Perry

Should this count? He is a guy but always plays a woman.

This says female. Not to be rude or anything.

She was always so nice and beautiful! I loved watching her act.

83Gina Torres

Beautiful and sexy and is a really good actor

Tina is a super actress and so sexy

84Jessica Parker Kennedy
85Skai JacksonSkai Jackson is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Zuri Ross in the Disney Channel sitcom Jessie, and is currently starring in the Disney channel series Bunk'd.

She hasn't been acting for long because she's 10, but she plays the amazing role of Zuri Ross in the Disney Channel show JESSIE. I think that they couldn't have chosen a cuter and better actress than her! With her sass and her cuteness than you've got yourself the best Zuri Ross on the market.

I don't know who came up with this list but I think it's favoritism more than reality. Some really good actresses were overlooked or rated far below their talent level...

97Samantha MumbaSamantha Tamania Anne Cecilia Mumba is an Irish singer and actress. She shot to fame in 2000 with the release of her debut single "Gotta Tell You", which reached the Top 10 in Ireland, United Kingdom and the United States.
98Margaret Avery

Ms. Avery is a screen legend and acting Royalty. Her emmy-nominated performance in 'the color purple' is unforgettable. As a young child, I remember watching her play "shug" and thinking "if she's beautiful, successful and colored" (as my grandma used to say) than I can be, too.
