443 Olivia de Havilland Olivia de Havilland Olivia Mary de Havilland is a British-American actress whose career spanned from 1935 to 1988. She appeared in forty-nine feature films, and was one of the leading movie stars during the golden age of Classical Hollywood.

Should be much higher on the list of great actresses--a truly legenday actress ever since her early film roles in GONE WITH THE WIND and THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and then her great dramatic roles during her free-lance years after getting out of her Warner contract. Elegant lady.

So often overlooked but always perfect in supporting or leading roles. And always lovely, as well!

As of the time I wrote this comment, De Havilland is still alive.
She turns 101 on July 1st, 2017. - Drewman1211

S/b in top 10.

444 Alexis Thorpe

Played only two years in " Days of our lives " and after that she did almost nothing. Also everybody knows that actors and actresses for " soap's " are not concidered as " best actors / actresses ". Too overrated to be so ranked high on this list if you ask me.

And that makes her better than Judy Garland and Ingrid Bergman?

Any of the four people ranked immediately below her could act circles around her.

Plays Cassie DiMera in "Days of our Lives".

445 Gloria Swanson Gloria Swanson Gloria May Josephine Swanson (March 27, 1899 – April 4, 1983) was an American actress and producer best known for her role as Norma Desmond, a reclusive silent film star, in the critically acclaimed 1950 film Sunset Boulevard. more.

the one and only Norma Desmond! - redseagrass

You can't tell gloria swanson and norma desmond apart after seeing the movie.

Norma will stick in my mind forever. She was so brave to play that part

447 Camilla Belle Camilla Belle Camilla Belle Routh is an American actress. Her works include The Ballad of Jack and Rose, When a Stranger Calls, 10,000 BC, The Quiet, Push, and Breakaway.

I've only seen her in one movie, which is When a Stranger Calls, but (despite what people say) i thought she portrayed Jill Johnson in a squnky and tough way, though being scared, too.


448 Lindsay Lohan Lindsay Lohan Lindsay Dee Lohan is an American actress. She is also a model, singer, songwriter, director, and producer.

Lindsay should be WAY higher. She is a highly talented singer, songwriter, musician and DEFINITELY actress. Some of her greatest films are the parent trap, mean girls, confessions of a teenage drama queen, freaky friday, just my luck, I know who killed me, and herbie fully loaded. Check her out, she is phenominal.

I know she's a trash bag, but she is a good actress. Her best work was Mean Girls, Freaky Friday, and The Parent Trap.

Lindsay lohan is the best actress of the generation! And she's the most beautiful and unique! And that's just the awful truth to all the haters out there or blind people who don't want to admit it just because of her drug problems and etc. In the end it wont matter. The world will finally see
Soon I just know it!

Lindsay Lohan WAS one of the best actresses of all times but like most of the people who got popular too fast she started to do drugs,drugs,drugs. but you should watch her movies, their amazing! and I think she has enough time to change sides an act again.

Wow! All the way down here, huh?

452 Catherine Deneuve Catherine Deneuve Catherine Deneuve (born 22 October 1943) is a French actress as well as an occasional singer, model and producer. She gained recognition for her portrayal of aloof, mysterious beauties for various directors, including Luis Buñuel, Francois Truffaut and Roman Polanski.

I enjoy Catherine Deneuve's work more than Meryl Streep's. She is more classy, more "artistic", very delicate, without any exaggerated ticks, besides she's such a beauty and has a unique personality. She has also taken many risks as an actress, performing roles not even Meryl Streep would've dared to do or even could do

Catherine always gives a brilliant performance. Her mere presence in a film you know you are about to witness a thing of beauty - and not just her face. It is obvious that with every great performance it is done with a big heart and an incredible mind. Bravo Catherine for continuing to surprise us with your immense range.

Catherine Deneuve in addition to being sublime is talented, class, captivating, intelligent and yet remains modest. She is a monument of the cinema and she knew how to illustrate in roles very varied in daring to take risks. Her beauty is legendary that is why she was the muse of Yves Saint Laurent or Chanel and still currently of vuitton etc
Catherine JE VOUS AIME! ;)

If she was an Hollywood actress she would be easely the number one actress of this list. A much better actress than Meryl Streep when it comes to portray different characters. She's more subtle, more classy and certainly more beautiful than Meryl Streep! She has done everything that could be possible as an actress and has nothing to prove anymore in acting. We're talking about a iconic and living legend here ( more than Meryl Streep if you ask me! )

460 Christina Ricci Christina Ricci

Sexy, creepy, mean, nice, goth, normal, she can play it all. I would equate her in many ways to Johnny Depp in that for many many years he was very underrated, yet always played his roles so perfectly. Golden Globe winner yetalways passed up for an academy nomination she is one of th actresses i truly enjoy watching on screen.

I love how this girl can be the "good girl" one minute, then the quirky, weird yet lovable goth girl, then a sexy, steamy babe the next. I also admire the fact she's one of the few child stars who didn't go all crazy with drugs and alcohol despite living in New Jersey. Not to mention the fact she got stalked by Gerard Way, I find that both adorable and creepy at the same time.

She is insane pure talent through and through. Just gets better with time and don't know why she's so low on the list. - babydoll

Open your eyes people! This chic is the definition of pure talent! The way she can fall into any role and make you believe it is a rare talent to have. Especially since she's portrayed so many different characters. One minute she's a creepy goth girl, the next a fiery tomboy, then a sedusive hot chic... She can take on any role and totally rock it!
She's also one of those child actresses who didn't go crazy on drugs and went on to become an equally talented adult actress. She's just incredible.
