Top 10 Best Actresses of the 1980s
Michelle Pfeiffer wasn't just one of the best, if not THE best, actresses of the 80's but she is still one of the best actresses today. She is multitalented (oil painter, singer, and she can fix things around the house), stunningly beautiful, A LOVING MOTHER AND WIFE, a classy and aspiring woman, doesn't hog the spotlight or use her children or sex appeal to make headlines, and she is extremely modest. Did I mention her potential humor? Michelle Pfeiffer is TIMELESS.
The Hollywood Knights (1980), Falling in Love Again (1980), Callie & Son (1981), Splendor in the Grass (1981), Charlie Chan and the Curse of the Dragon Queen (1981), Grease 2 (1982), Scarface (1983), Into the Night (1985), Ladyhawke (1985), Sweet Liberty (1986), The Witches of Eastwick (1987), Amazon Women on the Moon (1987), Married to the Mob (1988), Dangerous Liaisons (1988), Tequila Sunrise (1988), The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989).
I totally agree with the other comment. Besides her overwhelming beauty, talent, intelligence and humor, she is so deliciously humble. I so love and adore her
She or Kim Basinger would have been a better lead (for Tom Cruise) in TOP GUN!

Every character played by Diane Lane reminds me of, oh my gosh, Diane Lane. There are plenty of scenes where her efforts don't quite cut it. For the overwhelming majority of her scenes however, she manages to convince me Diane Lane is the character.
Either she's just that good, or I'm in love with her and can't tell the difference -- or both.

Diane Lane was and is a beautiful actress, she is funny, lovely, and most of all a GREAT actress.
She was and still is an awesome actor. I liked her as Cherry Valance on the outsiders movie!
An Australian actress and director. Absolutely gorgeous in "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid," where her acting talents and her deadpan comic ability shine.
Terms of Endearment was my favorite along with urban cowboy
Sexy...but. Not. Overwhelmingly. So...looks. Great in. Tight. Jeans (urban. Cowboy-mech. Bull scene) sheez. Hott. Enuff...

Phoebe Cates was not only beautiful, but a very good actress, didn't always get the really good roles, was never really taken seriously by Hollywood, they only considered here as a sex symbol, which she was of course, but she definitely had acting talent besides beauty!
