The Top Ten
It's time to STOP praising her as the number one actress. Her last oscar wasn't even an oscar she deserved ( The Iron lady ). Really, who cares about a movie that reflects on the life of one of the worst politicians of all time? That movie is almost praising M. Thatcher, so if you accept a script like that I believe it says all about what Meryl Streep is in real life. Nominated at the same time were Michelle Williams in
" My week with Marilyn " and Rooney Mara in " The girl with the dragon tatoo " and without a doubt these two actresses deserved more than Meryl Streep to win an oscar. If Meryl Streep won an oscar it's because the Hollywood executives knew that " The Iron lady " was a crap movie and without an oscar it would be a non - selling movie that was losing money. It's almost an obsession to most of the people to automaticly perceive a role of Meryl Streep as genius even if it's not. She's too overrated and don't deserve to be called the number one best actress. There are ...more
What do I read there? She even deserved an oscar for " Julie and Julia "? Her nomination for that movie was not even deserved. It should be Amy Adams who deserved an oscar for that movie. Even the real Julie said in a interview that she was impressed by Amy Adam's performance by portraying her. Meryl Streep just raises her voice and she gets a nomination. Being very good in accents and dialects doesn't make your acting skills better. She's just too overrated.
Highly overrated. Don't see why Hollywood always nominates her for Oscar awards. I just don't see any acting that warrants the accolades. She is just an average actor at best.
Overall this lady is an excellent actress, those who say otherwise are still waiting tables and are jealous!V 319 Comments
Jodie is the best best and best actress in Hollywood. Her performance in contact was so remarkable and I love to see her films, what a super actor, she is a born actress. Silence of the lambs and flight plan all made hit only because of her performance. Beauty with acting in right proportion and SHE IS THE BEST
Prefer her earlier roles as they will stand the test of time. Amazing actress as so believable in most of the roles, just a shame she didn't make wise choices near the end of her career but thankfully can be forgiven
People the list is for best actresses. Is that so difficult too understand.. No doubt its all about Jodie, Winslet and Blanchett (among the recent). I choose JODIE for her 3 decades..
She's great! that simple.V 38 Comments
HELLO MS ANGELINA JOLIE,
YOU ARE MOST BEAUTIFUL, STUNTS, ROMANTIC. I WILL BE REBORN BACK BUT I DON'T FORGET FOR MY ALL REBORNS. YOU ARE MOST IMPOSSIBLE. ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR NEXT FILM. I AM YOUR GREATEST FAN AND GREATEST BEST FRIEND OF TRILLIONS OF THE UNIVERSES AND FOR YOUR ALL YOUR REBORNS. YOU ARE number 1 OF THE TRILLIONS OF THE UNIVERSES AND I GAVE SAME REPLY TO TOM CRUISE THE MOST HANDSOME, ROMANTIC, number 1, STUNTFUL OF THE TRILLIONS OF THE UNIVERSES AND FOR ALL HIS REBORNS. I WILL YOU WILL WON THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD AND TOM CRUISE ALSO WILL WON THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD.
Her ability to fall into a role and tottaly claim it as her own is unparalleled among actresses. When you watch her movies you will never find yourself thinking why didn't they go with whatshername instead. From Hackers to Mr and Mrs Smith, it was always gonna be Angelina Jolie.
She is the best number 1 for sure
She is the GREATEST ACTRESS ALL OVER THE WORLD
She is an amazing and talented actress that is able to portray many different characters who can mold herself into different roles.
She's pure perfection
Angelina jolie all the wayV 209 Comments
Emma Watson is not nearly as talented as any of the others actresses on this list. She does not deserve number 14.
Like it was said many times before. Wooden and banal
Talentless lackluster performances. Not belong on this list at all
Oh! So she's more "talented' than "Natalie Portman" & "Scarlett Johansson? " She must be one of the "greatest" actresses of all time, if not the "Greatest" of all time. I don't know how she does it! She's "smart," "talented," "down to Earth," and "sexy." Starring in "critically acclaimed" blockbuster "hits" like "The Circle", an instant "classic! And what could be the "best" live action Disney movie of all time, "Beauty & the Beast! " Damn, she was the "best" thing about this film, I loved the part when she was twirling around & Emma is such a "fantastic" singer, way better than "Frank Sinatra! " Another thing I love about her is the fact that she makes the most awkward facial expressions, sings (it's not even singing) very terribly, pretending to be smart, and plays Hermione in every role! She's just... Cringe! Cringe at it's worst! To keep in mind, there are lots of gifted actresses (like the ones I mentioned) that deserve to be higher than this fraud who is only popular for being ...moreV 353 Comments
Come on, number two on this list? Most of the people agree that Meryl Streep is way too much overrated to be number one, but if you put Meryl Streep on a lower rank ( which she deserves ) it would mean that Sandra Bullock will become the number one best actress of all time. Does that really feel right? Sandra Bullock, the best actress of the world and of all time? She's maybe a good actress ( for some movies ) but she's way too overrated on this list.
AMAZING! My Favorite with her is The Blind Side! She was absolutely fantastic it was a fantastic and inspirational movie. I cried and laughed and awed more then I can even beginning to explain. She nails every single one of her roles weather is it Comedy, Drama, Romantic, or Action she is a fantastic Actress!
Amazing in Bird Box
She is the best actress EVERV 116 Comments
She can a named " The master of disguises." I am mostly inspired by her marvel films. In each movie she uses a different hairstyle. That might have also caused her to be the highest paid actor of the world. Earning nearly 40.5 million dollars per film she is also one of the richest
actresses in the world. She is the one who fascinates me in my dreams. To me she is an angel and one of the most beautiful actresses of the world.
She is such an amazing and versatile actress.
I loved her acting in match point, ghost world, the avengers and almost every movie she is in.
She is simply incredible.
She should at least top 5
Talented and so beautiful, she is my favourite Marvel actor.
Loved her as Black widow
Scarlett Johansson is the best. She has all the things that make a great actress. Amazing voice control, great body language, charisma and charm.
So overrall vote for this gorgeous and wonderful actress.
The most amazing actress of our time, and is already a Hollywood icon - in fashion and acting. Classy, gorgeous, poised, incredibly talented and concise of the different roles she always takes, she'll always be the Nicole Kidman that we'll always know who even gives an amount of money to various charities. Fact is, she can steal the show even with just a glimpse of her. Her accent and beauty steals the show, that you forget about everything. Get this - she can actually sing and dance, hence Moulin Rouge (2001). She can do drama, (The Hours, Cold Mountain) horror (The Others) and, she's incredible funny (Bewitched, To Die For, Flirting) while winning awards on the way. She'll probably even win three Oscars with that kind of natural talent, poise, and beauty.
Nicole Kidman is the most beautiful woman in the world. Never Ever in my life I've seen somebody prettier than her. She is a pure goddess... Any time I watch her on the screen I'm spellbound by her gorgeous and luxurious beauty and incredible talent. She's a pure GODDESS and a true talent. Ans I was so disappointed when she didn't won an oscar for Moulin Rouge... How come it didn't happen =(( Her performance is shattering, remarkable, AMAZING, HEART-WRENCHING and totally precious... Very very underrated... I LOVE YOU, NICOLE... YOU ARE THE BEST
She is very good and very very diverse
I liked her in the hours, eyes wide shut, and she was so good in the Others

Cate Blanchett's range supersedes any other actor of her generation. She has a chameleon like ability to transform herself into any role. All her performances are of a standard rarely seen. Her depth & emotional connection with audiences is evident in all her films. Her convincing & award winning portrayals of real life characters, such as, movie star, Katherine Hepburn in "Aviator", Queen Elizabeth 1 in "Elizabeth" & Jude Quinn(Bob Dylan)in "I'm Not There", are performed with an unsurpassed honesty, empathy & integrity.
She may not be active on social media, but she is the actress that played the wider range of roles and she embodied each character perfectly.
She is so beautiful and talented. She can play so many different roles. - Cadetickle
She's completely in a league of her own. In every single performance, she embodies all that the character is meant to be from stunning emotional depth to well though personal touches which gives her characters their own unique traits. She stands out from film to film as one of the most versatile actors in the world. She's undoubtedly the best actor (male/female) of our time!
Don't believe me? Elizabeth, I'm Not There, Babel, Notes on A Scandal...
To name a few, but everything she does is golden.
The best actress of all time
The best actress in the world, hands down
The best OF THE LIST, AMAZING in LEON, MY BLUBERRY NIGTHS, CLOSER, GOYAS GHOSTS, BLACK SWAN
Thor, Star Wars, and that one where she’s gets abandoned by her boyfriend and is pregnant - lemurV 73 Comments
Very versatile. She has extraordinary stage presence. She plays a commandeering role exceptionally well, and exhibits a wide range of emotions convincingly.
Number 10? Sigourney should be at least number 5.
I had to choose her not only because she is a wonderful actress, playing heroes, damsels, and even villains. She also has such a powerful, commanding voice that let her sneak into such films as Wall-E, Cabin in the Woods, Paul and many others. She may be a sci-fi legend but she's also done many well known comedy and drama movies.
Side note. Whoever put Kristen Stewart on this list needs to be smacked upside the head. That girl has the acting range of a potato.
I've seen Kristen Stewart act and also be interviewed. I think she's lovely and don't understand all the vitriol and vilification sent her way. - PfeifferpfanV 27 Comments
Jennifer Lawrence deserves to be higher on this list. She is so talented, one of the youngest ever oscar nominees, her work in Winter's Bone was outstanding. She was amazing in the Hunger Games and was beyond amazing in the Silver Linings Playbook. She is so talented, so moving, so emotional. I love her so much and look up to her. She is truly one of the greatest actresses I have ever seen, if not the greatest.
I love her so much!
I think she is a great actress. She has a lot if talent. Others may not agree but I think she I a pretty good actress. In real life she is kind if weird though... We'll not weird but a little more hyper than she is in the hunger games. In the hunger games she is more tough and peaceful, but in real life she I loud and hyper an funny and I think that is what makes her who she is. And that is why I think she is a great actress.V 153 Comments
I like very much kate winslet. I really appriciate for titanic movie work.
Come on! Kate Winslet is the epitome of acting, with that kind of grace and beauty Kate is born to be a superstar! And mind you, she's very young still but has achieved greater heights than most of the world's actors. Imagine 20 years from now, and voila, she'll collect thousands of awards again and again. Must watch movies of her: Titanic, The Reader, Heavenly Creatures,... Spotless Mind, and Mildred Pierce. You'll be blown away!
Kate winslet performance in "The Reader" and "Revolutionary Road" is the best performance of her generation because of his extraordinary depth in acting she made it to the top! Kate is simply amazing!
Such a underrated actress. The way she transforms herself to bring each character to life, is mind blowing. She even outshined Leonardo Dicaprio in Titanic and Revolutionary road - Ang2001V 131 Comments
Why is Dame Maggie Smith not closer to number one? She has proven her chops time and time again. Yes, there are many pretty young actresses out there, some with real potential, but Maggie Smith is potential realized...and she's a joy to watch.
Dame Maggie is my absolute favorite actress of all time. Her ability to play any character there is makes me truly in awe of her talent. Her performances as Jean Brodie, Judith Hearne, Dianna Barrie and Minerva McGonagall make my heart melt. She truly is the best actress of all time. Highly underrated? Of course. Highly under-appreciated? Yes. But she really is the best.
Harry Potter, Sister Act, Tea with Mussolini, The First Wives Club, Hook, Clash of the Titans... She is great in everything she is in. - heather
Embarrassing list, any list that has Sandra Bullock at No.2 is meaningless...and I like her!
Maggie Smith is head and shoulders above most on this list. - KJR42
She is absolutely the best, the top and by far, number one. I love her chemistry with her leading men. She makes them shine which is also a tribute to her generosity and her consummate acting ability. She was so vulnerable yet funny with Al Pacino in "Frankie and Johnny" and was surely a stand out with him in the cult classic, "Scarface" She inhabits any role to it's fullest and there's never a question that she's the only choice for that role. She is heaven on earth.
This gorgeous woman is by far one of the most underrated actresses, ever to have graced the screen. She is beyond beautiful and luminous in "The Witches of Eastwick" undefinable in "The Fabulous Baker Boys", absolutely adorable and what comedic timing in "Married to the Mob" and richly authentic "News Year Eve". I even loved her in"Icould never be your woman" what an actress, what a talent, what a beauty and what a mother. Probably a great best friend, as well. Love you, michelle, love you michelle, love you michelle. Oh and thanks so much for your gifts.
Amazing actress in all types of movies. Excellent in Dangerous Minds (1995), Up Close & Personal (1996), The Deep End of the Ocean (1999), What Lies Beneath (2000), I Am Sam (2001), White Oleander (2002), Hairspray (2007).
How gorgeous is this amazing and brilliant actress?V 849 Comments
Helena Bonham Carter is a master of psychotic difficult characters!
She started with small town, rich little girls in classical english history movies and fast developed an impressive rage of roles. She can play everything and is always a scene stealer, even in the King's Speech she was able to challenge Colin Firth's perfect leading performance.
Sadly she is mostly known for her Burton movies, but she can play much more like we have seen in Live from Baghdad, Wings of the Dove, Frankenstein, Enid, Burton & Taylor, Suffragette and so on. And even in blockbusters like Harry Potter, ALice in Wonderland or Dark Shadows she plays so edgy that it is just outstanding.
She is one of the best actresses of all time and I am happy to see what the future holds for her
Beautiful woman and one of the greatest actresses of all time!
Here are so many awesome actresses on the list like Maggie Smith or Emma Thompson but HELENA BONHAM CARTER is definitely the best!
Movies like Sweeney Todd, Harry Potter or THE KING's SPEECH are just awesome because of her!
She is pretty and talented and always who she really is and that's why she deserves a much better place on this list! (I'm sorry, I come from Germany, so my English isn't very good. :))
She os one of the most inspiring people on this earth and my number 1!

I love her so much, she's so funny, down to earth, and of course an amazing actress. She makes her characters so full of life.

May she always be with us in the force. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
She was never be able ( because of the media ) to get rid of her " Princess Leia " image which did slow down her carreer as an actress ( plus personal problems ). Nevertheless, she did a lot of " unknown" movies ( sometimes as lead actress or second roles but also a lot of cameo roles ) but always performed with all her heart and soul. She will mainly be remembered as the " Star Wars " princess but also as an icon and legend of the seventh art.
Loved you in Star Wars - Stevenuniversefangirl

I love her! She is amazing in movie she does. She was great in One Day because she showed everything that was needed for an excellent book. She was perfect in Devil Wears Prada. All of her work is thanks to the Princess Diaries!
Her unique acting style captures the heart of her fans, tough and strong both physically and mentally! Not to mention, her beauty! Fabulous actress. Can't wait for this Friday's dark knight rises for a different aura of Catwoman by Anne Hathaway!

I don't understand how people like Selena Gomez and many others are ranked ahead of Vivien Leigh. She is one of the greatest actresses of all time and definitely more talented than many of the other women on here. If you can beat out people such as Bette Davis for a role, then you should probably be ranked higher on this list than Mila Kunis and Amanda Seyfried (even though I love them both).
She should be in the top 10 for just playing Blanche Dubois in A Streetcar Named Desire. That is one of the greatest performances by any actor.
vivien was never herself again, because she changed into Blanche Dubois after that role in a streetcar named desire - Mathx
Are you kidding me best actress twice for Gone With the Wind And A Streetcar Named Desire and she's not even the top 10 are you kidding me she died youngV 13 Comments
I would vote for her. I mean she is the best of the best; especially, her role in Psycho Beach Party. I love that movie. Those funny scene and stuff... It looks underrated but, if you just look at it and understanding it like watching movie just for fun, it would be the best. I like it.
Watch enchanted then the fighter. Where did she come from/ others pale by comparison.
Playing from gleefuly roles in movies like enchanted. To extremely serious ones on movies like the master or American hustle. Simply great.V 11 Comments

Jennifer Aniston in the top20? Are you for real? Her acting skills didn't improve since her " friends " days. She's just a bad actress when it comes to serious roles. Don't tell me that actresses like for instance Naomi Watts, Rachel McAdams and a lot more ranked lower on this list are less talented than she is. That would be ridiculous. She 's just too overrated because of her popularity in certain circles.
Seriously speaking her only role that impressed any one was that of "Rachel" in friends. In that too she overacted too much towards the show's end. On comparing Courtney and Kudrow she was nowhere in the show. The only reason people loved her was for her stunning haircut and look which too faded away with time. - kattapa
I love Jennifer Aniston, she should be in the top tens - ChelseaPurnell
What! Are you kidding me? Jennifer is so overrated. On comparing Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow she was nowhere in the show. The Only reason she became famous was her stupid hairV 55 Comments
Katharine Hepburn is the real number one of the best actresses. She did take risks that even Meryl Streep could never have done or dare to do. Her on-screen charisma is without a doubt way better than Meryl Streep. As a matter of fact, you can't even compare the talent of Katharine Hepburn next to the too overrated Meryl Streep. She could play so complex characters that no other actress ( even at our present time ) would be capable of doing. All her movies are watchable and very well played and that's something you certainly could not say about Meryl Streep. Katharine Hepburn is ranked so low on this list that it's almost an insult and too ridiculous for words.
Simply the best! 'Best Actress' Oscars: "Morning Glory"(1933). "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner"(1967), "The Lion in Winter" (1969), "On Golden Pond" (1982). Achievements? Amazing. Loved all her movies, especially enjoyed "Woman of the Year". I wonder how many more 'Best Actress' awards Katharine may have won if she hadn't been labeled 'Box-Office Poison' for her spunk as a libertarian. Longevity in the movie industry for a woman is a mountain that is difficult to climb. Katharine's acting is a shining example to other actors that it can be done. What a gal! - 0s_1s
She was intelligent, educated, articulate and passionate. When she emoted it appeared as if the lines were coming from the character she was playing's soul. On top of that her career spanned decades. She was as charismatic as an older character as a younger.
Come on, Kate Hepburn at number 18. Something is very wrong here for such a gifted Actress to be this far down on the list. She is clearly a Top 5 Rated Actress!V 29 Comments
A top actress. A well deserved winning Oscar and Golden globe for her performance as serial killer in " Monster ". Nominated for a Oscar and Golden globe for a equally outstanding performance in the movie " North country " and well-reviewed performances for " Young adult ", " The cider house rules ". Also exellent acting in " 2 Days in the valley ", " The Italian job " and the lesser known " Aeon flux " and " The road ". Like every actress who are playing so many diverse characters there were some bad choises made in her career ( I didn't like too much her acting in " The devil's advocate " but that was maybe how she was supposed to play and therefore not her fault ). The percentage of her lesser acting is so little as a matter of fact that it can be seen as " learning from mistakes " and she has proved her talent so many times that it is no doubt to concider her as one of the best actresses of all time.
Her performance in Monster was the best acting performance I have ever seen. You just forget she's acting, it's incredible.

This actress is in a totally different league! She is not just a performer, she is an icon! There are just a few actresses in the entire world who can be compared to her aristocratic style, talent and unforgettable persona. Audrey is larger than life!
Audrey Hepburn is probably the greatest actress there ever was. Her innocence and inquisitive nature captured the hearts of millions down to this day. I have only seen her in a couple of movies, but I still claim her as the best acting and fashion icon ever!V 57 Comments

Hell, if half the bloody actresses above Ms. Close were of the high caliber of her then they would deserve to be there, until now, there is no logical reason as to why the likes of Emma Watson and Natalie Portman are higher up than this extremely fantastic and gifitc actress!
Her range is a wonder. She can play epic & roles, as in Dangerous Liaisons, crazy & disturbing roles as in Fatal Attraction, subtle & introvertet roles such as in Albert Nobbs, lovingly & warm characters as in The Big Chill, The Natural and The World According to Garb and she is also unforgettable as strong female turns such Eleanor of Aquintaine in Lion in Winter & Patty Hewes in Damages. Glenn also took Gloria Swenson's iconic role and made it her own in Sunset Boulevard! She should definitely be in the top 10, in the likes of Streep, Dench, Smith, Redgrave, Taylor, Mirren, Hepburn, Davis, Lange, Bening, Sarandon, Thompson, Swinton, Chastain, M. Williams, Ullman, Bergman, Garbo, Adjani and Huppert!

How dumb some people can get! Bette Davis should be at least in top 5! We're talking about ACTING people! You people who voted for kristen Stewart are obviously not familiar with the term! Kristen Stewart is without a doubt the worst actress of her generati or even of all generations.. I'm not quite sure..! Her silly and pretentious attitude is disgusting! I don't need to refer to her acting again because I suppose my sentiments have become very clear. Whereas Bette Davis is a brilliant actress and has been among the geniuses who founded the industry. Placing "actresses" like Kristen Stewart over her is a huge disrespect. - vicmilano
A Fine Artist: she took roles others wouldn't take, she played variety of characters from tough, evil, murderer, to comedic, endearing, businesslike. I believe she would have won more awards but the voters couldn't take her tough, aggressive persona... she should be number 1, thank you.
There is no beating Bette Davis! Period! She is the ultimate in translating any character to the screen. What other actress in the world could have pulled off Whatever Happened to Baby Jane/ Absolutely
Brilliant a piece of work. The only actress since Davis who can drum up the degree of magnetism on the screen would be Meryl Streep. It is interesting that Davis was Streep's mentor.
Bette Davis was such the great actress. She took on roles that required so much depth of the characters that many of today's actresses could not begin to touch. That is the trait of great acting. To see her ranked so far from the top only proves to me that ones judging and ranking have no idea what makes up a great actor or actress. Bette Davis ranks up in the top of the list.V 51 Comments

MISERY. What a performance. This woman should come before people like Jennifer Aniston etc. Ridiculous. And Marilyn Monroe? Give me a break. One overrated individual. So overrated that it is actually annoying. She was the worst thing about "Some Like It Hot" which is a great movie. I wish, they'd hired someone else to play Sugar though.

One of the greatest actresses of all time, it's ridiculous that names like Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman are in the Top 10 but Kathy is down at 52.

So overrated. This actress has no charisma on screen. I can't believe that some people are actually impressed by her acting. Just because she has some popularity ( and that won't last, believe me! ) doesn't mean that she's a top actress.
Not only is she a terrible actress, but she’s not even hot it looks like she stuck a piece of cardboard up her ass

She is so pretty and is a really great actress.
Awesome performance! Sexy and beautiful body! Should definitely be #1! I mean Pirates of the Carri bean? Come on people!
Keira Knightley is beautiful and an overall amazing actress. I like her the best when she is portraying girls named Elizabeth. Mainly Pride and Prejudice and the Pirates of the Caribbean. Either way she is amazing and I could definitely picture her as number one.V 23 Comments

I've saw her in a speaking thing she did in Brisbane, and I cried when she walked out on stage she was flawless, and I believe that she should be at least top 5, to be honest, I think she is the greatest human being alive, she has one an Oscar of Christ sake! The magic Mary poppins film made the most money of all films the year it was released! People ask me why do you think the sound of music and Mary poppins were such successful movies. The answer is simple... Because of JULiE ANDREWS!
I love her so much she is my 2 Idol of all times
How could anyone forget about Julie Andrews? No doubt she can act! She's a legend. Also the women never ages an has class! God love her for "Mary Poppins", "Sound of Music", Princes Diaries",...

I cannot believe I had to use the find command to locate her name! This is just wrong. I think everyone can agree that Meryl Street is the worlds best actress but this women is a close second. Whenever she is on the screen my eyes cannot stop watching her, she steals every scene. She is so good at playing a manipulative villain that you can not help but root for her character even if they are horrible.
I cannot believe some of the actresses who are currently ranked higher then this talent... It is just so sad. Most voters have no idea what talent is with some of the crap voted higher. She is hands down one of best actress alive to day
She might not be the best of the best but shes way more talented than meryl streep... At least her acting isn't boring and safe like streep.
This woman is a true actress. Her eyes only can deliver a hell of a performance.V 29 Comments
I did like to watch her movies but since her plastic surgery ( that didn't improve her ) mania, she's barely watchable. Don't understand why a talented actress would mutulate herself when you already made it on the big screen.
One of my all time favorite. I like her most in You've got mail.
How in the world can this lady be so low in this poll? She has been the star of some of the best romantic comedies of the past 25 years. - RdrTech
She is one of the best Actresses of the 20 century And the 21 century She so brilliant at ever movie she is in.V 4 Comments
She is a great Veronica Mars! - Falconflight
I have so much respect and admiration for Kristen. She's been on so many huge T.V. shows like Veronica Mars, Heroes, House of Lies, and the new series The Good Place, she gave a phenomenal performance as Princess Anna in Frozen, and she's such a caring person that has done so many good things for charity in her life. She's talented, kind, funny, cool, and also VERY beautiful as well. - phillysports
She's so great in comedy. Love her in the movie "you again"
Veronica mars, frozen, this girl can do it all - coolactress198V 3 Comments
Anna is amazing in pitch perfect, great actress, great singing voice, nominated for awards, really really funny, really kind and is great in any role!
Anna is good but overrated - mariazobeidi
An up and comer, but a terrific actor overall.
I love her so much shes cuteV 4 Comments
Maybe not the greatest actress of all time but she has a certain on-screen charisma rarely seen in today's actresses. Also a delight to watch because of her beauty. She doesn't deserve all the bad critics for her acting skills because in worthy roles she can deliver good acting.
She is absolutely awesome! Great actress! She was really good in the movie the fantastic 4 she has a great personality and she seems to be fine when she plays in a movie.
Jessica isn't just a hot actress she is different there is just something about her I mean I can't get enough of her movies every time I watch a movie for her I feel so inspired She is the best
She is a great and hot actress who deserves really to be #1 so vote for her, she deserves at least to be in the top tenV 13 Comments
Another great actor. I wish she'd get back in it.
Think of movies like 'Bonnie & Clyde', 'Chinatown', 'Mommie Dearest', 'Barfly', 'Eyes of Laura Mars', 'Network' and many others - all brilliant performances. Should be higher up.
Well, it's been said that her eyes could make the sky pale. Those eyes captivated millions. One of the few Child stars who built a successful career. Through many marriages and illnesses Taylor lived a true Hollywood life to create some great films and a legendary status.
Queen of Hollywood!
HOW IS SHE 40? She should be 1 on this list. Her eyes are just... WOW. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL. She is like, a legend. How can a legend like her be at 40 on this list.P.S. I also like Anne Hathaway and jenifer Aniston and Nicole kidman and amanda Bynes.
Doesn't need explanation.. It's shocking, she's not even on the list.V 3 Comments
Staring in one of the most known films ever, "The Wizard of Oz", this Academy Award winning actress took the industry by storm and will forever be known for her performances.
She was phenomenal. She should be rated in the top 5.
SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW! I cry every time. Judy you are amazing and are one of the most talented individuals, not only when you were younger but though your whole life. YOU ARE AMAZING and NOT just in "The Wizard of Oz" but in your later and smaller movies too. I especially love all you movies with Rooney
Garland needs to be in the top 5 at least. - mariazobeidiV 4 Comments
The Big Leboski, Jurassic Park: The Lost World, Still Alice, The Hours, and other films I have seen her in - Badabooo2
she should be in the top ten. she is fantastic! you can feel exactly what she is feeling when she is acting.
Any list without Julianne Moore in the top 5 is a joke. Look at the range of material she does extremely well and it's not arguable.
Versatile and gorgeous-she has tackled some really challenging roles and delivered gut-wrenching performances. She should be right there with Streep and Blanchett.V 9 Comments
Come on people! Ever heard of Notorious? Gaslight? Casablanca? These are all classics! Get with the program! - ThatMetalChick
Three-Time Academy Award winning Actress known for her powerhouse acting abilities.
Why is she only 49? Ingrid Bergman was an amazing actress and I know she had a lot of hate because of the whole scandal with her husband but that doesn't affect your acting technique and ability. There's a reason why Hitchcock picked her even though she was involved in a scandal.
Bergman cannot be forgotten. She should be in the top 5 at least. People just don't know actresses these days. What a shame. - mariazobeidiV 10 Comments
There were about five Whoopi Goldberg senior quotes in my yearbook this year... and only 50 people in the senior grade! Understandably. Whoopi not only has a fabulous name but is a fabulous actress. I am so happy that someone like Whoopi can be a face for the black community so that many young black people will want to become actors and actresses. Thank you so much for inspiring people with your talent.
Goldberg at number 68! She needs to be in the top 10 people - mariazobeidiV 3 Comments
The most sexy actor
She makes me laugh and smile. She is also very pretty and talented.
She is hilarious. Especially in the Heat with Sandra Bullock - Jonerman
All these people are writing entire biographies on here so I'm just gonna keep it simple.
She is the queen of comedy in my opinion
Julie Walters is a fantastic actress. I especially loved her performances in Mamma Mia and Harry Potter. She can play any role. A brilliant actress.
