102 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

104 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.

106 Sophia Loren Sophia Loren

An earthy, passionate, sexy, actress with raw beauty and the ability to bring both humor and tragedy to the screen.

107 Liv Tyler Liv Tyler Liv Rundgren Tyler is an American actress and former child model. She is the daughter of Aerosmith's lead singer, Steven Tyler, and model Bebe Buell.

Whats not to love about Liv, expect she can sing but does not need to. More movies please

Amazing grace and beauty. She must select her roles to better allow her talent to shine.

She has literal true beauty and grace. I can see why she was cast as Arwen in the lotr franchise as she looks as beautiful and acts as amazing as an elf. She should definitely keep acting because most of the people I know absolutely love her.

108 Anna Kendrick Anna Kendrick Anna Kendrick is an American actress and singer. She began her career as a child actor in theater productions.

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!

An up and comer, but a terrific actor overall.

She should be number one and she's lower than J-law. Anna makes J-law look like a slump.

I watch her movies just to see her hot body. Her acting skills are ok but she's not a top 5 actress, that's for sure.

110 Jane Fonda Jane Fonda Jane Fonda is an American actress, writer, political activist, former fashion model and fitness guru.

Never understood the so-called " traitor " scandal. She was a political activist against the Vietnam war. When she went over there she was forced by the present " media " for a photo. She was put in a out of order enemy war-vehicle behind a gun pointing at American targets ( she didn't had the knowledge of or clue in what vehicle she was put! ) and then suddenly it's like she was the one who had the idea to point at American targets ( she did a mistake but at the time she was not aware of it because the media had to take the pictures and nobody told her what she was really doing ). After that, when the pictures came out, it was the media again who wrote how she's against America ( because she's against the war and the descisons by the government ) and therefore against the ones who are fighting over there for their country. Like she was a pro-communist giving the Vietcong right to fight against Americans? All those media lies made her popularity in the movie business as an actress ...more

Actually she wrote in her biography that she was hooked on amphetamines and that she couldn't act without them ( amphetamines were the diet pills of the 60's, 70's and 80's ). So it's not that she's acting " like " but because she's on it. Explains her Always fast talking in her European movies.

Maybe not the best actress in the world ( and yes, she had an addiction for amphetamine dietpills in the sixties ) but movies like " Barbarella ", " Klute ", " They shoot horses, don't they? ", " Cat Ballou ", " Coming home ", " The China syndrome ", " On golden pound "... etc are all timeless classics. Meaning that this actress have contributed a lot in the history of the 7th art.

Love her in movies w/ Redford.

112 Lily James Lily James Lily Chloe Ninette Thomson, known professionally by her stage name Lily James, is an English actress.

A Downton Abbey alumnus who has since cracked America to be the British equivalent to Mia Wasikowska, a willowy doe-eyed youngster, who made her big movie footprint by appearing in a live action Disney fairytale. - Dale

Many were buzzing about Anna Kendrick's Cinderella from Into the Woods, but I'm sorry, Lily James is WAY superior by a mile!

CINDERELLA!

CINDERELLA!

113 Julia-Louis Dreyfus

Only actress ever to be nominated for the best actress Emmy for three different shows. Yeah, she's horrible.

115 Kay Francis Kay Francis Kay Francis was an American stage and film actress. After a brief period on Broadway in the late 1920s, she moved to film and achieved her greatest success between 1930 and 1936, when she was the number one female star at the Warner Brothers studio and the highest-paid American film actress.
116 Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Marie Gomez is an American actress and singer. She is best known for songs like "Come & Get It", "Good For You", "Same Old Love", and "Naturally". Selena Gomez's voice is mezzo-soprano but she usually sing in alto .

Selena is such a good actress like she changes the way she acts in so many movies and shows like in wizards of waverly place she is the bad child up to no good and then in monte carlo she changes form bad girl to a nice girl who just wants to explore the world after graduation. She is amazing I just love her I'm only ten about to turn eleven and all I know is that I hope someday I become a star like her!

Selena gomez is the best her songs are the best and she deserves to be the best actress please vote for her I want to see this beautiful girl on top 5 nabeel

She was amazing on Wizards of Waverly Place. Very good entertainer on that show. Only show I really loved on Disney. She definitely stole the spot light. Love her to death. She such a good person and is a great role model. People make fun of her child-like face and saying she can't act. Leave her alone. Having a baby face is a gift. You can stay young forever. Besides her looks she has a wonderful personality. Love you Selena forever and always

I love selena gomez she is a good actress she disorves to be number 1 or at least top 5

Ground breaking, mainstream defying role in Basic Instinct

Her acting in Casino was superb. One of the best female performances I've seen.

She was nominated for an Academy Award for Casino. She should have won. What an outstanding performance.

118 Eliza Dushku Eliza Dushku Eliza Patricia Dushku is an American actress and model known for her television roles, including starring as Faith on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff series Angel.

Gets many " wrong " movies. I've seen movies of her so bad because she ( a talented actress ) had to play with very bad ( and unknown for that matter ) actors and actresses ( unwatchable movies because of them ). When she gets a movie with descent co-stars you really see her talent. If she would had more worthy films, she would have been a bigger name in the movie industry. Seems that Hollywood is blind to see a talented actress like Eliza Dushku and it's really a pitty because she don't get any younger as time pass by.

Damn, she is really talented. I never truly realized until more recently.

The completely underrated, original T.V. series "Dollhouse" would have been partially empty without her unique versatility and commanding presence to lead the amazing cast.

Eliza Dushku has matured into an acting force to be reckoned with. She needs to be a leading lady in more productions. She will not disappoint.

120 Megan Fox Megan Fox Megan Denise Fox is an American actress and model. She began her acting career in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the Hope & Faith television sitcom.

She can't act. This whole list is supposed to be for judging acting talent, not sex appeal and looks. For almost every single actress on this list, their looks seem to be the main competitive factor and I find that ridiculous. Every comment has to mention their physical qualities and their attractiveness. Sure, good looks appeal to people. But it doesn't have much to do with actual talent and natural ability.
I do think this girl is gorgeous. Was she born to act? No. Is she a top actress anywhere? Certainly not. Mediocre at best. But she does not belong on any "Best Talent" list... sure, judge away on her looks, on a "Best Looking" list. But that is not what this particular list is for and it's getting boring that people think like that.
No one in the world would consider her for a major part in a movie if she looked totally different. Maybe like an extra, like a dead zombie on the ground covered in blood... if she went after the part really hard.

Sweet! My favorite sexy, brunette Actress in the world. She's awesome, nice, smart, and hot. She did great in 2 Transformer movies, Jennifer's Body, and Jonah Hex. If she played in the movie based on a comic book called "Fathom" after having a baby, she'll be on the top of the list. Keep up the good work, Megan Fox!

Really a weird choice. Never I would have thought to introduce her in a best actress category! But if her talent is debatable, her beauty isn't! And she rocked the house as a Young, clumsy and shameless starlet in HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS AND ALIENATE PEOPLE!

What is she doing here?
Who made this list? Pathetic
She's hot and wet
