61 Rachel Weisz Rachel Weisz Rachel Hannah Weisz is an English film and theatre actress as well as a former fashion model who holds both British and American citizenship.

great and talent actress, who makes all her movies classic and beautyful. i have seen her movies and she shines in evry of them.

She was luminous in the constant gardener, my heart actually hurt as the story unfolded. Great fun in the mummy to name just 2 well known roles.

She should be much higher on this list.

62 Gena Rowlands

She easily surpasses many of those placed above her in this list - whereas many of them can't she can act!

Good to see her moving up the list. She and James Garner were magical in the Notebook.

63 Gillian Anderson Gillian Anderson Gillian Leigh Anderson is an American-British film, television and theatre actress, activist and writer.

What's wrong with this list? How can actresses like for instance ( according to their rank on this list ) Sally Field, Sissy Spacek, Naomi Watts or even younger actresses like Emma Roberts, Mia Wasikowska and so many others concidered as worst actresses than Gillian Anderson? She was just " popular " in the " X-Files " series and certainly not exeptional in acting in those series and after that she did some boring and forgettable movies. A mediocre actress who did get and still gets too many credits. Very overrated.

Gillian's ability to convey 3 or 4 conflicting emotions simultanesously without speaking a single word of dialogue, makes her one of the most usnique and captivating actresses of our time. Plus she is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful to see, a truly devastating double shot of talent and beauty and offscreen, very passionate about many interests and charities.

She is the best actress I see. I hope she can get a movie in Hollywood.

Became popular ( and that doesn't mean " outstanding actress " ) in the T.V. series ' The X-Files ' and then what? What did she do to be ranked so high on this list? Overrated.

64 Chloe Moretz Chloe Moretz Chloë Grace Moretz is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2004 at the age of seven, and her first award nomination came the following year for The Amityville Horror.

Chloe is only still a teenager, but she is exceptionally talented and experienced in acting and movement.
She is one of the only teen actors I truly respect as a professional in her field.
She is much wiser than her years, and she knows how to convincingly portray genuine emotions, how to dance and move her strong, coordinated body in order to easily handle her own stunts. Impressive.
Chloe is a fun, personable and independent hard-worker with an extremely bright future ahead of her.
She will undoubtedly go very far in whatever she chooses to do, but acting and performing are what she was born and trained to do best.
Chloe Grace Moretz is an extraordinarily unique talent. She will only continue to improve her skills and to impress the world.
I have no doubt that she will be continuously nominated for many awards and be able to snag a bunch along the way.

Most beautiful face in Hollywood. Stunning eyes that smile. Great actress. I'm in love.

Amazing actress! Incredibly talented!

In Hugo she did a British accent when she's American. She sounded just like a British person.

67 Sanaya Irani Sanaya Irani Sanaya Irani is an Indian model-turned-actress. Her first major role was in the Indian youth show Miley Jab Hum Tum.

She is an amazing actress who definitely will be on the top of this list

Best actress ever

Versatile actress

68 Vilma Santos

The Best Actress for all seasons and for all reasons. A very respectable and sincere person; true beauty that shines inside and out; full of humility and integrity. A kind-hearted woman who has good values and does not want to be a trying hard person just to please everyone. A genuine gem in Philippine Cinema. Nobody has achieved something as what Vilma has done - from a talented child in Trudis Liit, to a sensational teen actress in the Vilma-Edgar movies (Dama de Noche), to a super woman in Darna (the most popular and successful Darna ever), to a phenomenal Dyesebel, to brave and daring roles in Burlesk Queen and Miss X, to box-office blockbuster movies as in Paano ba and Mangarap, Karma, Pakawalan mo Ako, to the award winning movies and characters in Relasyon, Broken Marriage, Adultery, Sister Stella L. , Dolzura Cortez, to offbeat and experimental roles in Tagos ng Dugo, Sinasamba Kita, Hahamakin and Lahat, to one of the greatest box-office award winning films that touched ...more

An actress could not be called great without versatility. Vilma has portrayed almost any kind or role one could think of and with flying colors. She is without the doubt the most versatile actress in Philippine cinema garnering the most number of best actress awards. She is the only actress in Philippines could truly be called a LIVING LEGEND and the GREATEST.

An actress par excellence, Vilma Santos' brand of acting has continue to evolve through the years and never got stagnated. She can play any character to different genres, be it in drama, horror, comedy, musical, etc. Her latest film "The Healing" is her 210th movie to date, more than 90% of which are lead roles. Her achievements in terms of Best Actress Awards and Box-office Queen Awards are unequaled by her contemporaries. Not only Vilma Santos is a complete actress, she has become equally successful in the field of public service having completed her three terms as Mayor of a major city in Luzon. At present, Santos serves as Governor of a vote-rich Province of Batangas. Vilma achieves an amazing feat of effectively fusing Cinema and Politics. And no one is complaining!

Who the hell is she to be ranked so high?

69 Sally Field

How in the world can anyone not include her in the top 10. Norma Rae, Sybil, places of the heart...

She is one of a kind. Starting as a flying nun to where is she at now?

" Maybe I'll come home in the spring ", " Places in the heart ", " Back roads ", " Sybil ", " Norma Rae ", " Stay hungry ", " Smokey and the bandit ", " Surrender ", " Not without my daughter ", " Mrs. Doubtfire ", " Gidget T.V. series ", " The flying nun T.V. series " etc... Different kind of movies ( drama, comedy... ) played all with such diversity in her portrayed characters really proves that Sally Field is one of the best and talented actresses of all time. Two deserved winning Oscars ( and she deserves to win more if you ask me ) and yet I can't believe that she is ranked so low on this list. Many actresses ranked higher on this list doesn't deserves or hasn't got the talents to be above Sally Field. She is a top 5 actress without a doubt. Don't tell me that actresses like Kirsten Dunst, Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Aniston, Mila Kunis and so many others on this list ranked higher are more talented than Sally Field. For serious reasons she has to move up, VOTE for Sally Field, ...more

Even in her latest movie " Hello, My name is Doris " at 70 years old she delivers a performance that make many younger and overrated ( Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Scarlet Johansson etc..) actresses not worth to be ranked higher than her. She's clearly a top 5 best actress.

70 Whoopi Goldberg Whoopi Goldberg Caryn Elaine Johnson, known professionally by her stage name Whoopi Goldberg, is an American actress, comedian, and television host.

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.

An Academy Award winning actress who has dominated since she came out. She is the only African American actress to have had multiple Oscar nominations.

71 Kirsten Dunst Kirsten Dunst Kirsten Caroline Dunst is an American actress, singer and model. She made her film debut in Woody Allen's short film Oedipus Wrecks for the anthology film New York Stories.

I wonder if kissing Brad Pitt when she was 8 is on her resume?

73 Barbra Streisand Barbra Streisand Barbara Joan Streisand, known professionally as Barbra Streisand, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker.

She is definitely the best.
Not only a wonderful performer and singer, but also such an emotional bright actress.

She should be at least in the top 10! Barbra is one of the greatest actress I've ever seen! I love her, especially in Funny Girl.

I would put her at the top

WHOOO WHOOO BARBARA STREISAND YOU ARE THE BEST AND THERE's EVEN A SONG TO PROVE IT! Your voice and acting are iconic. Hello, Dolly!

(wrinkles and rats)

74 Sissy Spacek Sissy Spacek

Maybe not the best looking actress of the world ( nevertheless I think she's attractive ) but certainly one of the best actresses of the world. Gives always convincing top performances. And that sweet Southern accent and voice of hers is a delight to hear. Needs to move up pronto on this list!

The minute she comes on the screen I begin to relax because I know I am going to see a spectacular performance. An astounding actress.

I loved her in carrie

Probably the most underrated actress in this century. - Karlbar

75 Judi Dench Judi Dench

Dame Judi Dench is an incredible actress.

76 Claire Danes

She's really underrated. Look at the movie " Broken palace " where she plays alongside Kate Beckinsale and you'll understand why she's underrated. A outstanding performance that makes lots of actresses ranked higher in this list shameful.

So beautiful! And her legs are the best legs in Hollywood. I love her.

Acting beautifully on stage and in movies! Very talented!

Claire Danes has been extremely talented her whole life. I've loved her since "My So-Called Life," but ever since then, she has truly taken off in her acting career.
Seeing her perform in Temple Grandin, one of the most inspiring movies ever made, was unbelievably amazing and emotional.
She is tremendously versatile and she commands the screen in whatever she stars in.
My respect and appreciation of Claire Danes will be forever. She is the REAL THING. Genuine in life, genuine in her screen portrayal of complicated emotions and situations.
She seems so underrated to me. Her subtle strength and vibrance in her performances are incredibly impressive.
She is just a complete natural. A natural born performer.

77 Mia Wasikowska Mia Wasikowska Mia Wasikowska is an Australian actress best known for starring as Alice Kingsleigh in Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.

It really annoys me when people are comparing her to Gwyneth Paltrow ( there's maybe a very little look-a-like ). She's actually thousand times a better and talented actress than Gwyneth Paltrow. Should move up.

Very underrated and highly talented actress. Movies like " Stoker ", " Jane Eyre ", " Madame Bovary ", " Alice in wonderland "... proves how talented and diverse this actress is. An actress who dares to take risks and who succeeds in her performances. This actress needs to move up!

It's amazing that Mia hasn't been in the limelight as much as other actresses of her ilk. Even Meryl Streep has been championing Mia.

Australia's sweetheart.

Viola Davis is an amazing actress. Why is she this low down? I saw the movie Fences she was so marvelous! - spongebobssister

Absolutely the most talented... Her ability to exude such raw emotion is genius... Powerful actress!

Viola should be in the top 10 at least. Jennifer Lawrence above her? Are you kidding me? She's amazing

Are you kidding me?! This woman is an amazing actress.I loved her in Suicide squad.

79 Kim Basinger Kim Basinger

Sorry Kim is not acting. She is always believable and funny.

Kim is my favorite movie sex symbol. Now she's old but just look at her - she looks gorgeous, stunning, fantastic!

She is my favorite, actress all time.

Fabulous actress. Best performance in

80 Bette Midler

love love love the rose ,only this lady couldve played her . why was i only 6 at the time

No! She shouldn't be on the list. Her best talent is being gutsy and able to shock people. But anyone can show boobs.

She can be funny, serious, dramatic...I.E. the Rose, Beaches, First Wives Club

Loved Bette Midler in Beaches. But where on earth is Barbara Hershey?
