2 Natalie Portman - Leon
3 Kirsten Dunst - Interview with the Vampire Kirsten Dunst - Interview with the Vampire 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.

She played as the little girl who is forced not to grow up because her life ended when she became a vampire. Dunst manage to make her character so sad but at the same time disturbing. Simply, one of the best performance ever, by a young girl or by actresses in general. - Alexandr

5 Keisha Castle-Hughes - Whale Rider
6 Leonardo DiCaprio - What's Eating Gilbert Grape?
