Top 10 Most Beautiful Actresses of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Audrey Hepburn Audrey Hepburn, born Audrey Kathleen Ruston (4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) was a British actress and humanitarian. Recognized as a film and fashion icon, Hepburn was active during Hollywood's Golden Age. She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the 3rd greatest female screen legend in American film history and was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.

Hepburn appeared in fewer films as her life went on, devoting much of her later life to UNICEF. She had contributed to the organisation since 1954, then worked in some of the poorest communities of Africa, South America and Asia between 1988 and 1992. more.

I personally do think she is really beautiful, she has such a pretty face and gives me such a different reaction than with all the other "beauties" of Hollywood and personally I think she's pretty underrated for her looks. Of course they could have picked a much better picture than the one they've picked here but still pretty. And for all you who don't think so don't worry, there's plenty of these kind of lists where they haven't even considered her. I just think she has a very honest sweet face

I think it's too overrated to say she's the second most beautiful actress of all time. I agree that she had a very pretty face and extremely beautiful eyes, but she had a body that was almost anorexic. To be on a list like this, everything must be perfect and she didn't have that. Don't get me wrong! I love her as an actress and she was a very likable woman but I think my comment has some truth.

Audrey Hepburn was absolutely beautiful and by far the most beautiful actress of all time. Furthermore, she is classy which separates her from all the other actresses apart from Grace Kelly who was also a beautiful, classy actress. And Audrey Hepburn's voice was divine. It's always an absolute pleasure to watch her on the silver screen in all her movies.

She was such an elegant and gracious lady and unlike other actresses her body didn't pave her way through, she had a tall and elegant frame and those dove eyes could just see through you and of course when she wore that "trademark" black dress, many a men's heart skipped a beat or two. Really, she is an epitome of beauty and enormous talent! I always want to be like her. :')

2 Grace Kelly Grace Patricia Kelly (November 12, 1929 – September 14, 1982) was an American actress who retired from Hollywood to become Princess of Monaco after marrying Prince Rainier III in April 1956. She died on September 14, 1982, a day after suffering a stroke while driving her car, which caused a crash. more.

Grace Kelly screamed "class". A classic blonde beauty blessed with exquisite bone structure, flawless skin, and impeccable facial symmetry, Kelly was surreal perfection. She was also a very talented actress who made her mark on history and the hearts of all who know her story and enjoy her films.

Grace Kelly was flawless in every aspect of her outward appearance, the way she carried herself and her Poise, and her constant state of calm in front of the public. That I am aware of there was absolutely no scandalous behavior in her or about her. Her beauty her poise and the way she carried herself all around made her my choice.

Grace Kelly is an eternal beauty. She even captured the eyes of the Prince of Monaco.

A classic beauty. Perfect features and divine charm and grace. The most beautiful actress to "grace" any movie screen anywhere in the world!

3 Marilyn Monroe Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson Baker; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress, singer and model. Decades after her unexpected death, she has remained one of Hollywood's greatest sex symbols with her eye-catching style, champagne blond hair, and breathless manner of speaking. She continues to be considered a major popular culture icon. more.

I think Marilyn was beautiful, but each to there own, what 1 person may find attractive another may find ugly. Marilyn had her own distinct look though, she owned that short blonde hair style & them blue eyes.

Overrated, overrated, overrated and really overrated. There are so many others far more beautiful than her. More exotic, more naturally beautiful and so much more graceful in their presentation.

Marilyn monroe is the definition of beauty, flawless complexion with that 'oh my my' charming smile and last but not the least.. Her style!

There are those doubters that say Marilyn was created by Hollywood but one has only to look at photos of her taken in her early twenties by Andre de Dienes to see what a true beauty she was; no one touches her.

4 Elizabeth Taylor Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, DBE (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011) was a British-American actress, businesswoman, and humanitarian. She began as a child actress in the early 1940s, and was one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema in the 1950s. She continued her career successfully into the 1960s, and remained a well known public figure for the rest of her life. The American Film Institute named her the seventh-greatest female screen legend.

It was difficult for me to put her in the second spot as with the exception of Hedy Lamar Elizabeth Taylor is the definition of beauty. Simply beautiful. Oh…to be redundant.

She is by far the most beautiful actress in this list. She has perfect violet eyes. She has natural cupid bow lips that all the other actresses have to draw on with lip pencil. Liz only needs lip stick, no lip pencil. She also have such thick lashes that she did not need false eyelashes during a period when every actress used false eyelashes. She also had a "real" beauty mark that she usually hides. And in her younger years, her figure rivals Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren. Even Alex Baldwin, in an TCM interview, called Elizabeth Taylor the most beautiful woman to grace the silver screen.

I don't understand why Elizabeth Taylor is not the first to be the most beautiful of all time. It is a known fact she has perfect facial features. Also can you tell me who else but Elizabeth has violet/purple eyes! Very rare. Did you ever see Cleopatra? Oh my god, only Elizabeth Taylor could look breath taking with the Egyptian makeup! She made the perfect Cleopatra. Despite her face, she was very modest, and was a great lady that did charitable work for aids, and helped other people not as fortunate.

Liz is the most gorgeous actress of all time. The other Hollywood beauties who are her runner ups for the top ten most beautiful of all time are Hedy Lamarr, Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Rita Hayworth, Lana Turner, Gene Tierney, Lena Horne and Marilyn Monroe. I adore Audrey Hepburn, and she is extremely adorable, cute and have a great heart. But it the extreme classic beauty department, she is not quite as gorgeous as the names I mentioned.

5 Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) is an American actress, model, and singer. She made her film debut in North. Johansson is considered one of Hollywood's modern sex symbols, and has frequently appeared in published lists of the sexiest women in the world. As of February 2017, she is the highest-grossing actress of all time in North America, with her films making over $3.6 billion. She has appeared in many movies such as 2014's Lucy or 2013's Under The Skin. She also plays the character ‘Black Widow’ in Marvel movies such as Ironman 2, The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame

Never really seen what big deal is about her. Nice body and face. Not striking or eye catching at all. You could pass her on the street and not even notice her. That means to me that too many people have spent time building her up in their mind watching her on the big screen, which can happen.

Scarlett Johansson is the most beautiful woman of all time. I know a lot of people say otherwise but it's only because they are irritated that she comes out on top of their favourites. Scarlett easily has the BEST bone structure with her chiseled jaw and high cheekbones. Not to mention her well proportioned lips and captivating eyes.

Not eye catching? How is she not eye catching! Nice excuse, but it's not fooling me. Look at her Body! Look at Hair! Look at her Eyes! Look at her Lips! Listen to her voice!

People calling her overrated have to be kidding themselves. Scarlett Johansson has perfect bone structure (those cheekbones and that jawline!), those mesmerising eyes, beautiful lips and warm skin. She is simply speaking the most beautiful woman to have ever lived.

6 Angelina Jolie Angelina Jolie is an American actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian. She has received an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. She has also been cited as Hollywood's highest-paid actress. more.

She is the most beautiful actress living at the moment, she is a truly beautiful woman she helps people, and is beautful inside and out.

The most beautiful actress alive today. She has an unusual beauty, and doesn't look like just the average Hollywood pretty face.

Don't come anymore beautiful or graceful than Angelina. Love her.

One of the most beautiful faces and eyes ever. Look at promo stills from "The Tourist" if you need convincing.

7 Monica Bellucci Monica Anna Maria Bellucci (born 30 September 1964) is an Italian actress and fashion model. Bellucci began her career as a model and made a transition to Italian films. She played the role of Persephone in the 2003 science-fiction films The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, Mary Magdalene in the 2004 biblical drama The Passion of the Christ, Malèna Scordia in the 2000 film Malèna and Alex in the controversial art film Irréversible. At age 51, Bellucci played the role of a Bond girl in the 2015 James Bond film Spectre. She is often considered among the most beautiful women in the world.

The most classically beautiful woman on the list, and maybe ever, especially in her 40's. She would have been a beauty in Rome 2,000 years ago, just like today. Perfect body with real curves too.

Truly the most beautiful woman I have ever seen (Opinion). She actually makes my heart beat faster just looking at her!

Lover her

Beautiful and great role model for woman not to starve themselves and show you can be beautiful without being a size 0.

She is an Italian actress. She is enough beautiful. She was crowned to be the most beautiful lady of world.

8 Keira Knightley Keira Christina Knightley is an English actress. She began acting as a child on television and made her film debut in 1995. She had a supporting role as Sabé in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and her first significant role came in the psychological horror film The Hole.

She is the prettiest woman I have ever seen in my entire life.

Don't know where to start. Any Elizabeth she is giving life is amazing. Can't stop watching her movies.

English Beauty at it's best.

Keira Knightly is a really nice actress bust also really beautiful.

9 Michelle Pfeiffer Michelle Marie Pfeiffer is an American actress and producer. One of the most popular actresses of the 1980s and 1990s, she has received international acclaim and many accolades for her work in both comedic and dramatic films.

She blew me away in dark shadows. She is still so beautiful. But she had my heart at cat woman. Aw that outfit.

I admire her independent nature but imagine if she existed in the studio system?! She would have been the biggest star of them all

Incomparable in everything. Looks brains kindness talent. She is the best there is

She was, is and will ALWAYS be the most beautiful, humble and self effacing woman in Holloywood.

10 Kate Beckinsale Kathrin Romary "Kate" Beckinsale (born 26 July 1973) is a British actress. After some minor television roles, she made her film debut in Much Ado About Nothing (1993) while still a student at the University of Oxford. She then appeared in British costume dramas such as Prince of Jutland (1994), Cold Comfort Farm (1995), Emma (1996), and The Golden Bowl (2000), in addition to various stage and radio productions. She began to seek film work in the United States in the late 1990s and, after appearing in small-scale dramas The Last Days of Disco (1998) and Brokedown Palace (1999), she had a break-out year in 2001 with starring roles in the war drama Pearl Harbor and the romantic comedy Serendipity. She built on this success with appearances in The Aviator (2004) and Click (2006). more.

What do you mean, personality, charm and approachabillity is lacking? She's always nice towards her fans ( taking pictures, signing autographs, talking to fans ). Just look at YouTube " Kate Beckinsale full panel / fanx2016 ". Never saw a nicer celebrity than her. If you mean by approaching, trying to kiss her or ring the doorbell of her home to come in, it's obvious that she isn't. She's one of the most beautiful and nicest actresses of all time.

The most beautiful girl in the world and I heard that she is recently single again because she divorced her cheating husband. What an idiot if you ask me. I mean, cheating when you got a beauty like Kate Beckinsale.

VOTE FOR HER! She's number one material. Better looking than Elisabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Marlyn Monroe,Grace Kelly,Monica Bellucci, Catherine Zeta Jones, Kathie Evancho, Rhamba (Who the hell is she ),Hedy Lamarr. And we're talking about actresses here,so she should up without a doubt in this list. One of the most talented actresses in the world. THANKS!

She is one of those actresses who has aged gracefully over the years and is becoming more and more beautiful(at least in my opinion) and she is a really nice person.

The Newcomers

? Rhea Seehorn
The Contenders
11 Hedy Lamarr Hedy Lamarr, born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler (9 November 1914 – 19 January 2000) was an Austrian-American film actress and inventor. Often called “The Most Beautiful Woman in Films”, Hedy Lamarr’s beauty and screen presence made her one of the most popular actresses of her day. more.

When Hedy goes from what I would call a straight face to what I call the Hedy Lamar smile it is just plain magic. A wow. Lights up my life kind of event.

Lamarr will ALWAYS be my favorite screen beauty. What is Liz Taylor doing at the top of this list?! All she had was a pair of eyeballs. Yes, apparently they were a rare/freakish violet color, but that alone doesn't make you an all-around beauty. Vivian Leigh should also be highly ranked, in my opinion. Subjective lists like this are often so bizarre to me. I suppose we all feel that way. You wonder how humans can have such differing opinions. And each of us thinks we're correct and the other guy is a jerk, right?

It's been said that one of the great tragedies in the history of Hollywood is that she wasn't filmed in color until she was 36 appearing as Delilah in Samson and Delilah as she had the most spectacular eyes, skin and coloration and perfect features. She had a distinct accent and was not a great actress either but she was just breathtaking to look at. Google her images and you will see how exquisite she was even if they are just black and white pictures. She doesn't have the hype as some that are shown higher on this list but for pure beauty she should be number one.

Hedy was not much of an actress and difficult to get along with but everyone who saw her when she first arrived in Hollywood were stunned by how beautiful she was and she really stood out. The head of the make-up department at MGM said, "It's really a shame to put make-up on her-you have to do it but she looks better without it". Arlene Ford who founded the Ford Modeling company when asked who had the most beautiful face she ever saw and she said without any hesitancy-Hedy.

12 Jennifer Lawrence Jennifer Shrader Lawrence is an American actress. Lawrence began her career in television, playing her first major role as a main cast member on the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.

Come on! We're talking about MOST beautiful actresses here.
Jennifer Lawrence doesn't belong in that category! She looks like thousands of women you see in the street everyday. Nothing special at all.

She is extremely talented but I have to say she is not beautiful. Cute but not beautiful

11th!? She is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen! come on she should be higher, if not first.

Why aren't people voting for her? She is gorgeous! Those angelic blue eyes,cute lips plus she is a really good actress.

13 Catherine Zeta-Jones Catherine Zeta-Jones is a Welsh actress. Born and raised in Swansea, Zeta-Jones aspired to be an actress from a young age.

I think Catherine Zeta Jones is stunning! How can people say she doesn't deserve to be on this list? She's a beauty. Her beauty may not be 100% natural, but most celebrities aren't completely Natural. They've all had nips & tucks at some point. I think she has a lovely figure as well. It's nice to see most of the women on this list are women with full figures instead women who starve themselves until they become anorexic twigs.

She has the most perfect looking face I've seen.

Her beauty is unreal.

Her beauty is plain and simple but damn this woman is sexy.

Should not be among the most beautiful of all time-definitely not.

14 Margot Robbie Margot Elise Robbie is an Australian actress. Robbie started her career by appearing in Australian independent films in the late 2000s. She got her big break in 2013 with The Wolf of Wall Street, where she was acclaimed for her performance, and being hailed "the hottest woman I've seen in a while" by many.

Maybe the most beautiful of our young stars.

One of the most radiant beauties on this planet!

She's on par with Scarlett!

Just look at her !

15 Emma Watson Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson is a British actress, model, and activist. Born in Paris and brought up in Oxfordshire, Watson attended the Dragon School as a child and trained as an actress at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts.

She is the most beautiful actress in my opinion. I think she started to be pretty wince Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In the Yule Ball scene, she was absolutely stunning. Since then, as Hermione she was son beautiful. Then in her recent movie, Little Women, she was still so beautiful. I think that she has a natural beauty.

I vote for Emma because she is pretty and unlike other actresses that got surgery she didn't she has natural beauty! and she got the role of belle from beauty and the beast! and she also got the role of Hermione! She also got the role of Meg from Little women and meg is the prettiest one so she is super pretty and has a beautiful she should be on the 1 most beautiful actress in my opinion so sorry Emma Watson haters she is super pretty and has a beautiful voice, natural beauty, has no surgery and she played belle in beauty and beast! she should be #1 on this list

Seriously, she's unattractive and beyond, overrated. She's not even pretty. She is homely looking with a whiny, nasal voice and the acting ability of paper.

Emma should be on top she is so pretty and if you don think so then... I don't even know what you are thinking. Emma Watson is THE BEST and the most beautiful.

16 Ava Gardner Ava Lavinia Gardner (December 24, 1922 – January 25, 1990) was an American actress and singer. The American Film Institute ranked her as the 25th greatest female star of classic Hollywood cinema . Her third marriage was to singer and actor Frank Sinatra, from 1951 to 1957. She would later say in her autobiography that he was the love of her life. Sinatra left his wife, Nancy, for Gardner and their subsequent marriage made headlines.

Ava Garnder's (gorgeous) face combines Liz Taylor's wide-cheeked femininity, Vivien Leigh's cat-eye seduction and Audrey Hepburn's chiseled uniqueness with full lips and a delicate cleft chin to boot! Plus she was leggy and buxom. Of course she belongs in the top 10!

Even at a very old age, she was very beautiful. Watch " Cassandra Crossing", you will see. I hardly can believe people put Kate Beckinsale in higher ranking. People mix up being sympathetic with beauty. Beauty requires charisma, killing eye looks with oval feautures.

Perfect bone structure, perfect skin, perfect eyes, perfect lips, perfect hair, perfect body, perfect everything. Never had any work done. A true Venus rising from the sea. My absolute favorite movie goddess.

Perhaps not the most popular, but she's by a mile the most beautiful woman of all time. Her face was pure perfection, beauty and sensuality.

17 Gene Tierney Gene Eliza Tierney (November 19, 1920 – November 6, 1991) was an American film and stage actress. Acclaimed as a great beauty, she became established as a leading lady. Tierney was best known for her portrayal of the title character in the film Laura (1944), and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Ellen Berent Harland in Leave Her to Heaven (1945).

Ridiculously attractive. Compelling to watch her in heyday movies. Have a few saved on my DVR, but I never delete them. Who made this list? Gene Tierney should easily place in the top 10 of any all-time beauty list.

Gene Tierney ranked at number 40? Hugely underrated! Ms. Tierney's classic features were absolutely perfect, not to mention her lustrous hair and her lovely figure. A complete goddess. In my opinion, she's [arguably] the most beautiful woman ever to walk the Earth. Many of those listed above her are back-benchers when compared to Gene Tierney.

She was gorgeous. She should be much, much higher on this list. I agree that she and Hedy Lamarr were the most beautiful actresses of all time.

Truly the most beautiful actress to ever grace a movie screen. All the women on this list are beautiful, but in my opinion Tierney should be atop the list.

18 Halle Berry Halle Maria Berry is an American actress. Berry won the 2002 Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the romantic drama Monster's Ball. As of 2018, she is the only black woman to have won the award.

Truly a beauty and should be in the top ten. One of the few actresses I would like to meet because she is a awesome! very talented, and my favorite female actor.

She's very beautiful, especially when she portrayed Storm from the movie Wolverine and the X Men.

Should be in top 10

19 Emma Stone Emily Jean "Emma" Stone (born November 6, 1988) is an American actress. She is the recipient of various accolades, including an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, and a Golden Globe Award. In 2017, she was the world's highest-paid actress and named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. more.

The perfect woman for me! Beautiful, funny, cute, smart, sexy! Simply perfection! And her eyes... The most beautiful I've ever seen!

Attractive. Most beautiful or a real beauty, not yet. Give it 10 years and see.

She looks just as beautiful without makeup.

I want to make babies with her.

20 Sophia Loren Sophia Loren is an Italian film actress and singer. Encouraged to enroll in acting lessons after entering a beauty pageant, Loren began her film career in 1950 at age 15. She appeared in several bit parts and minor roles in the early part of the decade, until her five-picture contract with Paramount in 1956 launched her international career. more.

I think Sophia is beautiful inside and out. Saw her movie - "More then a miracle" and was amszed how beautiful she is - Even you dressed her in a potato sack, her beauty still shine through!

Always thought she was number 1. When I was a kid back in the early 50's she was my heart throb and still is. Told my wife I would never leave her for another women unless Sophia wanted me.

As a young actress she had a magical beauty and is still stunning at 80 plus! Wonderfully actress too.

Striking beauty. She has the most unique gypsy look to her. It is no wonder someone walking through a town snatched her up.

21 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.

Was pretty when she was still an unknown actress for all public. When she became more succesful it seems that she became more insane in her head also. Plastic surgery that didn't improve anything ( the opposite was more likely ), ugly tattoos everywhere. Looks like a very ugly misformed barbie doll now!

I don't think she is pretty enough to be on this list. She is Ok but she is not really a natural beauty. I'm not A Fan of fake looking women who look like barbie dolls, wear too much makeup or have had so much surgery they struggle to smile.

She's the most stunning woman. She has the best dark long hair, most beautiful light eyes, great sculpture. She's the most perfect looking woman. Her personality is amazing. She's very honest and loyal. No one can reach upto her.

She has beautiful eyes. Look at her eye color, it's the perfect shade of light blue!

22 Natalie Portman Natalie Portman is an actress, film producer and film director with dual American and Israeli citizenship. Portman is best known for her roles as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and Nina Sayers in Black Swan. She won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award, more.

I knew it when I seen her in the movie "The Professional ", that she'd grow up to be a great beauty. Beauty and brains, Natalie is the complete package.

The first time I saw her, I knew she was a special actress. She has the most beautiful smile I have ever seen. Natalie is perfection.

Natalie Portman is so pretty! Her eyes are beautiful and she looks amazing without makeup too! So she is naturally beautiful.

Her brown eyes, beautiful and thin nose & good-shaped eyebrows make her so much beautiful. Her most attractice feature is the shape of her face

23 Kim Basinger Kimila Ann Basinger is an American actress, singer and former fashion model. Following a successful modeling career in New York during the 1970s, Basinger moved to Los Angeles where she began her acting career on television in 1976.

Got screwed by Hollywood

24 Rita Hayworth Rita Hayworth, born Margarita Carmen Cansino (October 17, 1918 – May 14, 1987) was an American actress and dancer. She achieved fame during the 1940s as one of the era's top stars, appearing in a total of 61 films over 37 years. The press coined the term "love goddess" to describe Hayworth after she more.

Wow I can not believe Rita Hayworth is only 18! She was stunning! She was Classy & Beautiful she should be higher than this.

Classic beauty with the type of sexiness that was tastefully pushed to a nice limit.

She was a stunning redhead. She epitomized Hollywood glamour.

Gorgeous. Men and women drooled at the sight of her. Also, not vain at all, but very shy in oerson.

25 Katherine Heigl Katherine Marie Heigl is an American actress, film producer, and former fashion model. She started her career as a child model with Wilhelmina Models before turning her attention to acting, making her film debut in That Night and later appearing in My Father the Hero as well as Under Siege 2: Dark Territory. more.

Please tell me how she doesn't at least make this list.

I think she is a lot prettier than some of the higher rated actresses
