Top Ten Most Underrated Actresses


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Leah Remini

She plays the ultimate bitch!

82 Julia Louis-Dreyfus Julia Louis-Dreyfus

She has won three Emmys and yet hardly anyone knows who she is.

Born filthy rich with lot of connections. Does she really deserves to be called underrated? Agree, she was perfect in the " Seinfeld " T.V. series ( one of my favorite T.V. shows of all time ) but I have to admid that as an actress for more serious and important movies she's not that good.

83 Alexa Vega Alexa Vega Alexa Ellesse PenaVega is an American actress and singer. She is known for her role as Carmen Cortez in the Spy Kids film series and Shilo Wallace in the film Repo!
84 Jorja Fox
85 Natalie Portman Natalie Portman Natalie Portman is an actress, film producer and film director with dual American and Israeli citizenship.
86 Eleanor Parker
87 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.
88 Fox Stevenson
89 Sheryl Lee
90 Anna Torv
91 Barbara Hershey

Just the fact that she is not on this list yet, and currently stands at 259 on the best actress list says it all. She was unbelievable in Beaches, was every bit as good as Gene Hackman in Hoosiers, and brilliant in Black Swan. Yet, probably because she is 67, people tend to forget about her. There are better actresses out there--but not very many.

92 Parker Posey

If you watch a movie like " price check" you can't help it to love this actress. In fact every movie I saw where she's in, convinced me more and more that she is a amazingly gifted actress. She has an originality that is rarely seen in other actresses.

One of the most underrated actresses out there.

Really, if you watch movies like " party girl ", " broken English ", " blade trinity " and many others, you surely can't ignore the fact that she is a wondeful actress. Very UNDERRATED!

93 Claire Danes

For one reason or another this very beautiful talented actress is underrated that it is almost unbelievable to understand why. She's Always giving top performances in movies like " Broken palace ", " Shopgirl ",
" The family stone " and so many others.

94 Lauren German

A beautiful and talented actress who's almost never noticed for her acting. In the movie 'Standing still' she plays alongside Amy Adams where she gives a top performance. Look also for her in the more recent movie ' The divide'. A very underrated actress with an amazing talent.

95 Evan Rachel Wood Evan Rachel Wood Evan Rachel Wood is an American actress and musician. She began acting in the 1990s, appearing in several television series, including American Gothic and Once and Again.
96 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.

One of the most hard working actresses of the " new generation " in Hollywood and for T.V.. She doesn't hesitate to do " risky " films and she's very talented and at ease for every movie genre ( drama, romance, comedy, action, horror... ). Was nominated as a teen actress but gets almost no credits for her acting skills as an adult ( despite her outstanding performances ). I really would like to see her nominated or even win an oscar in the future. She deserves it!

Everybody ( or almost everybody ) knows her because she has a famous aunt but almost nobody knows her for her talent. This very beautiful actress is way much better than her aunt ( is more diverse and subtle in her acting ). She's also an actress who dare to take risks. Many people accuse her of nepotism but the truth is that facts about her talent that she proved in movies like " We're the Millers ", " Lymelife ", " 4,3,2,1 ", " Nancy Drew "... don't lie. A girl who deserves praise and fame.

97 Naya Rivera Naya Rivera Naya Rivera Dorsey is an American actress and singer, known for playing Santana Lopez on Fox's musical comedy-drama television series Glee.
98 Holly Marie Combs
99 Becca Tobin
100 Kaley Cuoco Kaley Cuoco Kaley Christine Cuoco is an American actress, known for her roles as Bridget Hennessy in the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules, Billie Jenkins in the final season of the supernatural drama series Charmed, and Penny in the CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory for which she won a Satellite Award in 2012, a Critics' more.

She's more overrated than underrated. Very mediocre actress ( who will never make it big on big-screen movies ) that gets too many attention. Also an actress who is very full of herself and who has a stuck-up attitude.

Hilarious and Fantastic!

I like her as Penny in The Big Bang Theory.
