Incredibly talented and a natural beauty.

Incredibly talented and stunning.

23 Emmanuelle Béart

I think that she is just an exceptional and very, very unique actress! It seems to me that every role she plays, well every character she takes part in, was not chosen out of the ordinary since she plays each role, adding a unique fragrance to it, perfectly well; making it imposible for any other actress to be as good as her in that character! And of course! Let's not forget her charming beauty and her "Froide" appearance. What makes her a great actress is that she knows what she wants. Also, the most intriging and "Magnifique" part is that, at the same time, she can look as innocent as she could be seductive and as fragile as she could be "brusque", violente.

24 Sandrine Bonnaire
25 Karine Viard

I think she's just genius in every movies she's acted in! So talented and versatile! Love her!
