Best Actresses of the 80s
The Top Ten
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).
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.
She or Kim Basinger would have been a better lead (for Tom Cruise) in TOP GUN!
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 later won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Sophie's Choice (1982)... the best Meryl..
Sophie's Choice was a tour de force and established her as the most accomplished actor of her generation
Well why isn't meryl number 1?
She should be in the top 1!
16 Candles and The Breakfast club are the epitome of 80's classics.
Sixteen candles and the breakfast club are two of the greatest films of all-time partly thanks to the greatness of Molly Ringwald it's a shame that you don't hear of her any more
Top 5 reasons: She is a Wonderful actress, she is Talented, she is Beautiful, she is Unique, and she has feeling as an actress.
Molly is the greatest. I love her. Also, she is probably one of the most beautiful people I've ever seen.
Did someone of you see "Dangerous Liaisons" or " Fatal attraction"?
She was absolutely amazing in both of these movies!
Touched by Love (1980), Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains (1981), Cattle Annie and Little Britches (1981), Child Bride of Short Creek (1981), National Lampoon's Movie Madness (1982), Six Pack (1982), Miss All-American Beauty (1982), The Outsiders (1983), Rumble Fish (1983), Streets of Fire (1984), The Cotton Club (1984), Lady Beware (1987), The Big Town (1987), Love Dream (1988).
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!
Carrie she is amazing

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!
See did not get enough acting roles. She could act and looked great.
Was and is the best looking sexy hot!
PHOEBE CATES IS A VERSATILE ACTRESS. SHE CAN SING, DANCE AND SHE CAN MAKE PEOPLE CRY IN DRAMATIC ROLES. SHE WAS JUST UNDER-RATED. SHE COULD HAVE GIVEN HER MORE SERIOUS MOVIE FILMS.
If we are talking about the 80s and greatest actresses she has to be top 3.. To many movies to name

I loved your acting sexy November in sex seen
So stunning to look at, and a great actress for her age, at the time in The Blue Lagoon , Endless Love , and my favourite adventure films Sahara ( 1983), Wet Gold (1984) and Brenda Starr ( 1986). The most beautiful woman of the 80's. Hence her title of Face Of The 80's on the cover of Time Magazine.
I loved her work in the blue lagoon. Best movie ever!
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...
