Top 10 Most Beautiful Actresses of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Elizabeth Taylor

I don't understand why Elizabeth Taylor is not the first to be the most beautiful of all time. It is a known fact she has perfect facial features. Also can you tell me who else but Elizabeth has violet/purple eyes! Very rare. Did you ever see Cleopatra? Oh my god, only Elizabeth Taylor could look breath taking with the Egyptian makeup! She made the perfect Cleopatra. Despite her face, she was very modest, and was a great lady that did charitable work for aids, and helped other people not as fortunate.

She is by far the most beautiful actress in this list. She has perfect violet eyes. She has natural cupid bow lips that all the other actresses have to draw on with lip pencil. Liz only needs lip stick, no lip pencil. She also have such thick lashes that she did not need false eyelashes during a period when every actress used false eyelashes. She also had a "real" beauty mark that she usually hides. And in her younger years, her figure rivals Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren. Even Alex Baldwin, in an TCM interview, called Elizabeth Taylor the most beautiful woman to grace the silver screen.

How come isn't Elizabeth Taylor in the top 3? Although I love Audrey Hepburn, Liz really makes a statement of her beauty when she acts... She's so beautiful that I really can't make it in words!

Stunning timeless beauty. Beautiful and exotic violet eyes. Watch her in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe? " when she changes into the tights and the sweater; if your heart doesn't try to exit your body through your esophagus, you may not have one.

2Audrey Hepburn

I think it's too overrated to say she's the second most beautiful actress of all time. I agree that she had a very pretty face and extremely beautiful eyes, but she had a body that was almost anorexic. To be on a list like this, everything must be perfect and she didn't have that. Don't get me wrong! I love her as an actress and she was a very likable woman but I think my comment has some truth.

Taylor was certainly not the most beaucoup woman. Hepburn was Taylor should be number10 on the list

If you include personality and grace into the equation she is number one.

Overrated on looks and acting

3Marilyn Monroe

Overrated, overrated, overrated and really overrated. There are so many others far more beautiful than her. More exotic, more naturally beautiful and so much more graceful in their presentation.

She had a nose job so not natural

I think Marilyn was beautiful, but each to there own, what 1 person may find attractive another may find ugly. Marilyn had her own distinct look though, she owned that short blonde hair style & them blue eyes.

Gorgeous, sultry, and sexy.

4Monica Bellucci

The most classically beautiful woman on the list, and maybe ever, especially in her 40's. She would have been a beauty in Rome 2,000 years ago, just like today. Perfect body with real curves too.

She is the perfect model of natural beauty - moh_1993

Truly the most beautiful woman I have ever seen (Opinion). She actually makes my heart beat faster just looking at her!

6Kate 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 more.

The most beautiful girl in the world and I heard that she is recently single again because she divorced her cheating husband. What an idiot if you ask me. I mean, cheating when you got a beauty like Kate Beckinsale.

What do you mean, personality, charm and approachabillity is lacking? She's always nice towards her fans ( taking pictures, signing autographs, talking to fans ). Just look at YouTube " Kate Beckinsale full panel / fanx2016 ". Never saw a nicer celebrity than her. If you mean by approaching, trying to kiss her or ring the doorbell of her home to come in, it's obvious that she isn't. She's one of the most beautiful and nicest actresses of all time.

I'm for real in love with her. She can't be compared with the other girls

She is so beautiful. - Toshin

7Jackie EvanchoJacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

To BobG on your comment about my comment. I'm not putting Jackie Evancho down for her talent. I'm just pointing out that to be on a " ALL TIME " list she's still too young. I even say that we will be able to Judge her in about 15 years from now on ( and maybe she will be a good actress of all time! But now it's just too soon to put her in that category. ). I know that you're a fan of her but don't be offensive to my comment. I have equally the right to say my opinion as you do. Also I stick to my comment because it has truth in it. If you can't take any form of critic about your Jackie Evancho " obsession " ( your comments on every top ten site of her proves that ), I think it's time that you learn to respect other people's view and most of all, that you learn about objectivity! And please, don't hold a gun at my head now! LOL.

This poll says nothing about being based on "talent" or on being "a good actress of all time." (whatever that means) It's about "the most beautiful actress of all time." So you didn't even bother to understand what the list is about, you just jumped to conclusions, insulted the voters, made judgements about me personally, and made a fool out of yourself, and all for nothing. Why don't you just delete your comments and I'll delete mine. That way we can forget all about this foolish incident. - BobG

As to respecting the opinions of others, here's the flaw in your "logic": a VOTE is an OPINION too. It's an opinion with actual consequences for the ranking. But you disrespect voters when you say "What is this, some kind of joke? " No it's not a joke, it's people expressing their opinions by voting. Why do you single out Jackie's ranking for abuse? Why do you disrespect her voters? Why do you accuse me of being an obsessive fan when apparently you have spent a lot of time and effort visiting every one of her entries and cataloguing my posts. Sounds like you have some kind of an agenda...pretty obsessed with it too. - BobG

Girl with a thousand looks, the beautiful Jackie!

And she's a more beautiful " actress " (? ) than Nastassja Kinski when she was Jackie Evancho's age? Get real people!

8Scarlett Johansson

Never really seen what big deal is about her. Nice body and face. Not striking or eye catching at all. You could pass her on the street and not even notice her. That means to me that too many people have spent time building her up in their mind watching her on the big screen, which can happen.

She's actually very vulgar and trash looking even when they are trying to make her classy in movies or pictures.

Very overrated at No. 8. She's pretty but not one of the great beauties in Hollywood history.

Should be number one. She's so beautiful. She's absolutely gorgeous! - Metts

9Angelina Jolie

She is the most beautiful actress living at the moment, she is a truly beautiful woman she helps people, and is beautful inside and out.


She is the most beautiful girl I ever saw. Not real life but in television

Bow down to the queen!

10Catherine Zeta-JonesCatherine Zeta-Jones is a Welsh actress. Born and raised in Swansea, Zeta-Jones aspired to be an actress from a young age.

I think Catherine Zeta Jones is stunning! How can people say she doesn't deserve to be on this list? She's a beauty, Her beauty may not be 100% natural but most celebrities aren't completely Natural. They've all had nips & tucks at some point, I think she has a lovely figure as well, it's nice to see most of the women on this list are women with full figures instead women who starve themselves until they become anorexic twigs.

Should not be among the most beautiful of all time-definitely not.

Her beauty is plain and simple but damn this woman is sexy.

Incomparable in everything. Looks brains kindness talent. She is the best there is

12Hedy Lamarr

Not only was Hedy Lamarr drop dead gorgeous, she was also a genius.

It's been said that one of the great tragedies in the history of Hollywood is that she wasn't filmed in color until she was 36 appearing as Delilah in Samson and Delilah as she had the most spectacular eyes, skin and coloration and perfect features. She had a distinct accent and was not a great actress either but she was just breathtaking to look at. Google her images and you will see how exquisite she was even if they are just black and white pictures. She doesn't have the hype as some that are shown higher on this list but for pure beauty she should be number one.

The definition of beauty in the dictionary should say Hedy Lamarr. A no brainier

The most beautiful woman in film.

14Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Shrader Lawrence is an American actress. Lawrence began her career in television, playing her first major role as a main cast member on the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.

Radiates no sexiness at all. Too overrated.

Totally at a loss here. Just because you make a movie does not move you out of the somewhat attractive category.

She is extremely talented but I have to say she is not beautiful. Cute but not beautiful

She has a very cute nose with hazel coloured small and beautiful eyes and good-shaped lips

16Ava Gardner

They have problems with beauty here, good looking is not necessarily beautiful.

She was breathtakingly gorgeous!

Can't believe she was not listed anywhere on the list.. Should be in the top 20 at least!

I find her kind of ugly.

17Rita Hayworth

She was a stunning redhead. She epitomized Hollywood glamour.

Classic beauty with the type of sexiness that was tastefully pushed to a nice limit.

She had beautiful seductive look absolutely stunning

Wow I can not believe Rita Hayworth is only 18! She was stunning! She was Classy & Beautiful she should be higher than this.

18Winona RyderWinona Ryder is an American actress. One of the most profitable and iconic 1990s actresses, she made her film debut in the 1986 film Lucas.

Epitome of a quintessential classic beauty. One can really appreciate her perfect face in Bram Stoker's Dracula, she was and still is a stunner.

Ten times more stunning than Marilyn Monroe ever was

19Megan 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.

Was pretty when she was still an unknown actress for all public. When she became more succesful it seems that she became more insane in her head also. Plastic surgery that didn't improve anything ( the opposite was more likely ), ugly tattoos everywhere. Looks like a very ugly misformed barbie doll now!

She has a beautiful nose, cute and attractive eyes + cute smile which makes her one of the most beautiful actresses

I don't think she is pretty enough to be on this list. She is Ok but she is not really a natural beauty. I'm not A Fan of fake looking women who look like barbie dolls, wear too much makeup or have had so much surgery they struggle to smile.

Too many tattoos. - BobG

Looking good Kim, You're the best

Kim Basinger is probably the only actress who looks fantastic at her 60s! She had a perfect body in the 70's/80s/90s. She's a true BEAUTY
