View Full Version : Most beautiful actress?

05-25-03, 04:52 PM
It's been a while since we've done this thread, right?

Who makes the cut on your list of Most Beautiful Actresses (either past or present actresses (TV stars too if you wish), but no "pron" stars please)?

For now, I'll stick with just current actresses:

In order:
1) Rebecca Romijn-Stamos (Femme Fatale)
2) Monica Belluci (Malena, Brotherhood of the Wolf)
3) Charlize Theron (2 Days in the Valley, Cider House Rules, Reindeer Games)
4) Nicole Kidman (Eyes Wide Shut, To Die For)
5) Diane Lane (and I haven't even seen Unfaithful yet)
6) Elizabeth Hurley (Bedazzled, Austin Powers)

Last time we did this, I think I had Nicole Kidman ranked #1 and Charlize Theron #2, and Rebecca Romijn wasn't on my list. Also, I think Ashley Judd and Julianne Moore were on my list though this time they are unranked.

05-25-03, 05:14 PM
Eliza Dushku appeals to me on some level that no other actress ever has before. It's indescribable, really.

05-25-03, 05:16 PM
I have a thing for Kate Winslet myself.

05-25-03, 05:20 PM
As corny as it sounds, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" or something. someone's beauty me be another's fugly, for instance Kate Winslet doesn't do a thing for me.

That said, I would have to agree that Rebecca Romijn is probably the most stunningly beautiful actress in Hollywood right now.

The rest are all scattered remnants of poo.

05-25-03, 06:48 PM
In order:

1. Angelina Jolie
2. Rebecca Romjin Stamos
3. Nicole Kidman
4. Monica Belluci
5. Halle Berry

05-25-03, 09:34 PM
So I've spent a little more time thinking about this, and it seems most of the names I'm coming up with might not even qualify as "actresses." Tyra Banks, for instance, has been in some movies, but I still consider her a model. Maybe if she gets a decent role in the X-Men franchise I'll take her thespian aspirations more seriously. Likewise, her fellow Victoria's Secret gal Laetitia Casta has evidently done some French movies, but is she truly an actress? Or just a model-slash-actress-with-emphasis-on-the-"model"?

And I'm sure this will provoke much rolling of eyes, but I'm still not sick of Pamela Anderson yet. Sure, she's more in the Slutty-but-Hot category (as opposed to Classically Beautiful), but I can't think of many other actresses whose looks alone can make me tolerate VIP.

05-25-03, 09:49 PM
Charlize Theron

05-25-03, 10:01 PM
1. Britt Ekland
2. Gina Gershon
3. Rebecca Romjin Stamos
4. Jennifer Connelly
5. Monica Belluci
(6. Susan George)

05-25-03, 10:53 PM
In Order:
1.Natalie Portman
2.Keira Knightley
3.Kate Hudson
4.Nicole Kidman
5.Naomi Watts
6.Jennifer Connelly

05-25-03, 11:10 PM
Cate Blanchett is the most lovely woman on this planet.

05-25-03, 11:47 PM
Does no one else find Anna Paquin to be one of the more lovely and subtly sexy creatures to ever walk the earth? And yes, she's 20 and legal now. She's also a heck of a good actress.

05-25-03, 11:48 PM
In descending order (of all-time, trust me, I know my vintage actresses too):

1. Charlize Theron - The South African beauty for being the most statuesque and good all around (includes body AND face). The only blonde in Hollywood I love.
2. Katie Holmes - The body is lacking, but I love her girl next-door look and it wins me over.
3. Eliza Dushku - Love the smoky voice, and she has both an above-average face and above-average body.

Someone help me out. Am I the only one who doesn't think Rebecca Romijn-Stamos isn't that great? She's got the body, but I really don't like her face at all.

And about Blanchett, she kinda looks like Rebecca in the face don't you think? It's almost eerie, plus her lips are too pouty.

05-25-03, 11:56 PM
Kate Hudson
Jennifer Tilly
Naomi Watts

are some of my faves.

05-26-03, 12:00 AM
Kate Hudson was my number four. :) What she has is classic beauty, in otherwords, if you look at her chest-size for example, it's nothing to write home about. But man is she just a sight for sore eyes. Kate's one of those girls who I bet, sans make-up, will still look stunning. She got it from her mother. :)

05-26-03, 12:15 AM
I can't believe no one said the lady's name that tops my list!

1. Claire Forlani - stunning face
2. Elizabeth Hurley - beauty mixed with that sexy attitude
3. Rebecca Romijn-Stamos - pure sexyness
4. Tanya Roberts - crystal blue eyes (Beastmaster, Sheena)
5. Cameron Diaz - can't put my finger on it, but would like to.

If I took a week to think about it, I could probably think of 100 women that belong in the top 5.

For me, noone even comes close to <b>Audrey Hepburn</b>. Not within a mile, not within ten miles. And I like the way she looks in the 60s more than in the 50s, with Charade being my favorite Audrey movie.

Current actresses:
I think Theron, Pfeiffer and Hudson are OK, but none of the modern actresses really impress me the way that Audrey does.

05-26-03, 12:35 AM
Ingrid Bergman
Grace Kelly
Liz Hurley

05-26-03, 12:46 AM
Agree with Autotelik. Audrey Hepburn is lovely. But I loved Ingrid Bergman better.

As for current actresses...
Jennifer Connely
Natalie Portman
Kate Bosworth
Monica Belluci
Rebecca Romijn-Stamos

05-26-03, 01:03 AM
I agree with about 99% of the names mentioned so far, especially, in my eyes, Jennifer Connelly (looong time fan, but she's really got too skinny recently), Monica Belluci, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and yes, Reverend Custer, I agree about Anna Paquin too.

Although I haven't seen her in anything for quite a while, I've always been a fan of Amy Locane too.

05-26-03, 03:56 AM
1. Louise Brooks - No one will ever be as beautiful as she was.
2. Audrey Hepburn - pre 1960s only, though she had an immense beauty till the end of her life, she only looke absolutely amazing before the 60s IMO.
3. Mia Kirschner - the last things she was gorgeous in was Exotica and Crow - City of Angels, now she doesn't do it for me...but then :drool:
4. Georgina Cates - Last time she looked amazing was An Awfully Big Adventure and Frankie Starlight, once she started doing American movies I lost interest. She was absolutely gorgeous back on the britcom 2.4 Children also.
5. Kate Winslet - Especially in Heavenly Creatures :drool:. She, admittedly has her ups and downs, but when she is looking good it is amazing.

Eliza Dushku is more the way she acts in her movies.
When I just saw pictures of her, I found her o.k.
But when she talks and walks, she's sexy.

Kate Hudson

Current actresses--
Emma Caulfield (Darkness Falls, Anya on Buffy)

1. Grace Kelly
2. Audrey Hepburn
3. Rita Hayworth
4. Ingrid Bergman
5. Marlene Dietrich

Not trying to be movie snobbish; I honestly can't compare any contemporary actress to the beauty of these sirens. They truly knew how to make 'em back then.

Of contemporary actresses I DO find Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore and Cate Blanchett extremely attractive.

wow, I can't believe that there's no love for these 2 Asian beauties.

1. Kelly Hu (although she was wearing more clothing, I thought that she was better looking in X-Men 2 than in The Scorpion King...I guess the skin-tight leather outfit she had helped a bit).
2. Lucy Liu
3. Karin Anna Cheung (Best Newcomer from Better Luck Tomorrow...she was the most adorable thing in BLT).

I love my fellow Asian women!!!

No one ever mentions Aishwarya Rai in the most beautiful actress threads unless I do. Hopefully the next Bond flick will help give her more exposure (if she's in it). I can watch Hindi movies all day and not understand a word and not care so long as she's in it.

Ok, so I like brunettes....

07-21-03, 08:15 PM
I'm not just saying her because she's barely been mentioned, but to me, Sophie Marceau is the most beautiful actress in the world. She just has this down-to-earth yet stunning beauty/cuteness about her.


07-22-03, 01:15 AM
