81 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.

82 Viola Davis Viola Davis Viola Davis is an American actress and producer. After graduating from the Juilliard School in 1993, Davis began her career on stage and won an Obie Award in 1999 for her performance as Ruby McCollum in Everybody's Ruby.

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.

83 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

84 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?

85 Shailene Woodley Shailene Woodley Shailene Diann Woodley is an American actress. She came to mainstream attention for her role as Amy Juergens in the ABC Family television series The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

She is beyond excellence although I hear allot of crap about her! She is beautiful and amazing and I love her acting! I will always cry in the Fault in our Stars. You can literally feel the emotion pouring out of the screen! She is amazing and should never stop being so.

Oh! She is an amazing actress do you see her performance in the Fault in our Stars in the scene when she heard the news of death & cry it's just so real she perfectly able to feel the pain. A very few actress has this type of high performance skills

She is the best in the dram movies and she has really kind and beautiful face more than any actresses in the world

It may soon be the competitor of Kristen Stewart

86 Anna Farris

She seems to be a very funny woman ( in a good way ) in real life ( just look for any interview of her ). Maybe that's why she's so talented in comedies ( " Scary movie 1, 2, 3 and 4 ", " Just friends ", " mom " the T.V. series... ). I didn't see much of her in serious roles ( " Lost in translation "... ) but what I saw were convincing enough. A talented actress without a doubt. Just want to see her in more serious roles.

87 Cameron Diaz Cameron Diaz

Ohh., I thought she'll be on the top of this damn list... But as I can see she's not in it... Well, I must say this list includes talentless bimbo's... Like Miley Cyrus, and a dummy kristen stewart..! Ahh who so ever voted for them just need a better life...!

She should be on the top ten because if you have ever seen The Holiday or The Other Woman or Something About Mary then you will KNOW that she is a fantastic actress and I love her so much

Why is cameron diaz at the lowest position? Oh my god. She is so amazing. Her film is good.

She deserves to be way higher. She's one of my favorite actresses!

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

89 Betty White Betty White Betty White Ludden, known professionally as Betty White, is an American actress, animal rights activist, author, comedian, radio host, singer, and television personality.

She is still alive

I LOVE BETTY WHITE! She was so funny made me laugh so hard and it's so sad that she past away:(.

90 Peyton List Peyton List Peyton Roi List is an American actress and model. List is best known for playing Emma Ross on the Disney Channel comedy series Jessie and Holly Hills in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film series.

I thought that she would a least be in the fist 10 or 20 because she is pretty, has a stunning voice and has gleaming blue eyes, no supervise that she was good at being Holly Hills in Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Peyton List is one of prettiest and sexiest girls in the world. She so great in the T.V. Show Jessie if they made film about her or that she got the main role it could be a hit and put her up in the top 3 - bert631

91 Tilda Swinton Tilda Swinton Katherine Matilda "Tilda" Swinton of Kimmerghame is an Anglo-Scottish actress, performance artist, model, and fashion muse, known for both arthouse and mainstream films.

Great in narnia

92 Dafne Keen
93 Heather O'Rourke Heather O'Rourke Heather O'Rourke was an American child actress. She was discovered by director Steven Spielberg when she was visiting MGM's studios.

Not a real actress? She died when she was 12 years old. Best known for the Poltergeist movies ( she did a few other movies ). This little girl had a potential but she was taken away too soon from us.

Who cares? She did five lines in her whole movie career. Doesn't belong here. Tragic death for sure but this is a list about best actresses.

Not even an actress

94 Emma Roberts Emma Roberts Emma Rose Roberts is an American actress and singer. After small roles in films such as Blow, she rose to prominence with her role as Addie Singer in the Nickelodeon television series Unfabulous, for which she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award and six Young Artist Awards.

Emma Roberts is one of the most talented actresses of the young generation. Outstanding performances in movies like " We're the Millers ",
" 4,3,2,1 ", " Nancy Drew ", " Lymelife "... This actress can play very diverse characters and dare to take risks. Many people accuse her of nepotism because of her famous aunt but the truth is that this girl is more talented than her aunt ( she's more versatile and subtle in her acting skills ). And without a doubt more beautiful. Should be higher on this list. Too many overrated actresses and less talented than Emma Roberts are ranked higher. Why should she be ranked lower than all those actresses.

Her latest movie " Nerve " is a must-see. An actress who's actually is becoming better and better with every new movie she make and her acting skills are improving from day to day. In other words, A REAL ACTRESS! I wouldn't be surprised if she win in the future a well deserved oscar. One of the best upcoming actresses of the new generation. Emma Roberts is awesome and also beautiful.

Very talented, beautiful and very humble and adorable in real life. She's not a stuck-up actress because her aunt is famous.

Nominated several times as a teen but she doesn't get enough credits for her acting skills as an adult. Very underrated as an actress when she's clearly one of the best upcoming new adult actresses. Also one of the hardest working actresses of today ( big budget movies, indie movies, T.V. series ). Deserves more recognition. Emma Roberts is a very talented and very beautiful actress. I hope she will get a bright future as an actress, she's worth it.

99 Grace Kelly Grace Kelly Grace Patricia Kelly (November 12, 1929 – September 14, 1982) was an American actress who became Princess of Monaco after marrying Prince Rainier III in April 1956.

A short lived but extremely successful career. Part of the three-headed 50's beautys that are Kelly, Taylor and Monroe -

90 are you kidding me how did meryl streep come first and grace Kelly is ninety that is messed up

A real life princess with beauty and talent. Grace Kelly should be way higher than than she is!

She did only 10 movies and some T.V. movies and guest roles in T.V. series during her career as an actress but people seem to forget that those movies are now all great classics ( High Noon, Dial M for murder, The Swan, Rear Window, To catch a thief, The Bridges at Toko-Ri, Mogambo, The Country girl [ for which she won an oscar ] etc... ). I believe that her rank on this list is too low comparing to her contemporaries ranked higher on this list like for instance Audrey Hepburn ( she was ok but not that talented as Grace Kelly ) and certainly too low comparing to many overrated actresses of today. She's an icon of the seventh art, of beauty and grace ( like her name ) who deserves to be higher than number 101 on this list.
