To my humble opinion, garbo should at top 1, her acting skills are pure magic for those who can recongnize her immense talent, and the face of the century. Thank you greta xx

82 Ellen DeGeneres Ellen DeGeneres
83 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!

84 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

85 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

86 Judi Dench Judi Dench

Dame Judi Dench is an incredible actress.

87 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.

88 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.

89 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.

90 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?

91 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

92 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. ...read 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

93 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.

94 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!

96 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

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.
