21 Marisa Tomei Marisa Tomei

Never saw a movie with bad acting of her. She's beautiful, talented and yet she never gets the credits for all her work before and certainly after her movie " My cousin vinnie ". Underrated and needs more recogntion.

22 Kim Novak Kim Novak Marilyn Pauline "Kim" Novak (born February 13, 1933) is a retired American film and television actress, currently engaged as a visual artist.
23 Maggie Gyllenhaal Maggie Gyllenhaal
24 Lee Remick

27 Sherilyn Fenn

Just one thing - Audrey Horne in Twin Peaks.
Sherilyn deserved more interesting roles than she had - Irina2932

I agree. This beautiful woman is too underrated as an actress. Loved her acting in the movie " Diary of a hitman " and she was so sensual in her acting in the B-movie " Meridian ". Despite her few roles in descent movies and the twin peaks series she's remaining one of my favorite actresses.

Probably one of the most underrated actress of her generation... David Lynch used to describe her as a "broken doll" and that's what she is in one of the most moving and devastating scene in the cinema, th car crash scene in "Wild at Heart"... she was wonderful in "Twin Peaks" but I think that she does bad carreer choices after her big break...perhaps one day, she will have a good part where she will show us how much she is talented. Now, I'm happy to see her again in Twin Peaks's new season

28 Natalie Wood Natalie Wood Natalie Wood, born Natalie Zacharenko (July 20, 1938 – November 28 or 29, 1981) was an American film and television actress. She is best known for her role opposite James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause and as Maria in West Side Story. But the American icon remains infamously known for the circumstances ...read more.

A very beautiful actress who deserved more. Her life and her ending were tragic and people seems only to remember her for that ( alcohol, medication problems ). But she was unique and very talented and it's a pitty she don't get the iconic recongnition of all time best actresses.

30 Heather Graham Heather Graham
31 Julia Stiles Julia Stiles Julia O'Hara Stiles is an American actress. She first gained prominence for her lead roles in teen films such as 10 Things I Hate About You for which she won MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance, Down to You and Save the Last Dance winning the Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Actress.
32 Grey DeLisle Grey DeLisle Erin Grey Van Oosbree, credited as Grey DeLisle and Grey Griffin, is an American voice actress and singer-songwriter.
33 Peta Wilson Peta Wilson

Peta Wilson is in a stratosphere of her own. She is THE Goddess among actresses. No actress in the World has ever matched her talent, charisma, screen presence and beauty. Look at her eyes, they can totally burn thru and melt anything and send a message like laser beams, and they are so full of goodness, compassion, honesty, sense of justice, ethics, intelligence and raw beauty that she totally owns the silver screen by just being there. Hollywood is scared of her. Her raw talent and charisma is in a class of her own, unmatched by any other actress and in the size of Mount Ayers. Her Charisma and screen presence is so great that it's probably difficult for any other Hollywood actresses to keep their popularity in comparison. The acting in LFN was a masterpiece. that's why LFN is the best Nikita ever, the extraordinary acting from the cast is the best with LFN. In every scene Peta totally owns the screen. that's maybe why Hollywood has never given her the chance of star roles her ...more

She was great basket-ball player
She was supermodel in Europe
She is unique but very underrated actress - Irina2932

Peta Wilson is definitely an icon. Nikita was then for me, what Lisbon is now...
I adore them both. And, honestly, there are no other actresses, I ever got addicted to. And they are both totally underrated. Unbelievable.

34 Neve Campbell Neve Campbell Neve Adrianne Campbell is a Canadian actress. She is best known for her role as Sidney Prescott in the horror film series Scream.

Too talented to be ignored. Her acting abillities gets better and better and so does her movies despite that she's less popular now. Maybe it's a lack of publicity but she really needs to be in the spotlights again. A gifted actress without a doubt.

35 Erika Eleniak

Still hottest woman in Baywatch.
Erika was great in Under Siege, Girl in the Cadillac, A Pyromaniac's Love Story, Bordello of Blood, Vegas, City of Dreams, He Sees You When You're Sleeping and many others. - Irina2932

Grew up drooling over her perfect ass

36 Bridget Fonda Bridget Fonda Bridget Jane Fonda is a retired American actress. She is known for her roles in such films as The Godfather Part III, Single White Female, Point of No Return, It Could Happen to You, and Jackie Brown.

The Godfather: Part III, Single White Female, Point of No Return, It Could Happen to You, City Hall, Jackie Brown...

The most talented and the most underrated actress of the Fonda family! How come?

1 of the best butt's in the history of Hollywood

I love this smail, I love this eyes, I love this hair, it's so beautiful end sweet woman, I love you Bridget Fonda...!

38 Courtney Cox Courtney Cox Courteney Bass Cox is an American actress, producer and director. She is best identified for her roles as Monica Geller on the NBC sitcom Friends, Gale Weathers in the horror series Scream, and as Jules Cobb in the ABC/TBS sitcom Cougar Town, for which she earned her first Golden Globe nomination.

She is my favorite actress of all time. She is beautiful, sophisticated, insanely funny and only the coolest woman to ever live. I would like to see her in a dead serious drama playing a drug addict or hopeless alcoholic in love with a similar man. She would absolutely kill it!

I think she's not that good as an actress. Just look at one of those " Scream " movies where she's starring next to talented actresses like Neve Campbell or Parker Posey and it's obvious that she don't have the talent to compete with those actresses. Next to Parker Posey, I even dare to say that she's a bad actress.
She's popular because of " Friends " but popularity and talent are two different things. If she's underrated as an actress it's because she really don't deserve to be concidered as a top actress.

She is an amazing comedy actress. She really should of stuck with comedy. Friends and cougar town she is hilarious

I really liked her in friends as Monica Gellar
