Yesterday while I was thinking about what to write next, I decided to have some fun instead of writing the usual serious articles. For me it’s a welcome break!
This list is about the ten most beautiful Hollywood actresses. Since this is my list, it doesn’t include actresses who are generally considered beautiful, but who I consider to be beautiful. So don’t be surprised if your choice is not here. The factors I took into consideration while deciding who should make this list and who shouldn’t are:
Looks: Well, since this is a list of beautiful women, how they look is of prime consideration. What makes up for great looks? According to me, a magnetic and cute face, great smile, a great body (not too sickly) and well endowed features (I don’t need to explain that!).
Acting: Let’s face it. We like actors or actresses based on their performances in their movies. A gorgeous actress who can’t act will not make it to either most beautiful list or best actresses list. So all the ladies in this list have good acting skills, besides being beautiful.
Movies I have seen: I have included only those actresses whom I have seen enough number of movies, the minimum cut off being 3. Actually I would have kept this number as 5 but I bent this rule a bit for Katie Holmes. She is too cute to be kept out of this list!
So go ahead and feast your eyes!
# 1: Isla Fisher
Movies seen: Definitely Maybe, Confessions of a Shopoholic, Wedding Crashers, Wedding Daze, I love Huckabees
Don’t be shocked to see her at the top! She has not won lot of awards for her acting but, according to me, she is “the most beautiful.” The prime reason being her face. Few faces have fascinated me more than hers. Its not perfect, but the the way she looks with so much intensity and innocence in her eyes, really sets her apart. Or maybe it is the effect of the character April she played in Definitely Maybe. I fell in love with the movie just because of her. And then when I saw Confessions of a Shopoholic, I was absolutely convinced that she should adorn my laptop desktop!
# 2: Anne Hatheway
Movies seen: The Princess Diaries, The Princess Diaries 2, Ella Enchanted, The devil Wears Prada, Becoming Jane, Get Smart, Hoodwinked, Passengers, Rachel Getting Married, Bride Wars
If it wasn’t for the mystery and innocence of her face, Anne Hatheway would have been number one. I have seen more than 1000 movies and no one has looked more gorgeous than Anne Hatheway in Princess Diaries movies as Mia Thermopolis. With her extra wide lips (resulting in an extra awesome smile) and big black eyes she looks fresh and stunning. She has great acting skills to top her looks. She looked saucy in The Devil Wears Prada (though the “devil” in the movie, Meryl Streep, stole the show with her performance), won a whole bunch of awards for her performance in Rachel Getting Married, and looked pristine in Becoming Jane.
# 3: Katherine Heigl
Movies seen: The Ugly Truth, 27 Dresses, Knocked Up, 100 Girls, Caffeine
She is tall, she has a great body and has one of the cutest faces ever and the roles she played in 27 dresses and The Ugly Truth were absolutely adorable. No wonder she is part of the top 3 in this list.
# 4: Drew Barrymore
Movies Seen: Never Been Kissed, 50 First Dates, Chalie’s Angels, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Music and Lyrics, The Wedding Singer, Riding in Cars with Boys
Let me confess. I had a huge crush on Drew Barrymore for more than two years and her wallpapers have been on my laptop desktop more than anyone else’s. Apart from her great looks, she has this very fascinating way of moving her lips while speaking. She is the reason why I fell in love with Hollywood’s romantic comedies. Her sugary performances in 50 First Dates, The Wedding Singer and Music and Lyrics puts Drew Barrymore on the fourth spot.
# 5: Charlize Theron
Movies Seen: The Devil’s Advocate, Mighty Zoe Young, The Legend of Bagger Vance, Sweet November, The Italian Job, Aeon Flux, Hancock, Monster
It is hard to believe that an actresses as gorgeous as Charlize Theron can look so ugly and hideous in Monster. No wonder, her tole in Monster gave her the Academy Award and is considered by many as one of the greatest performances ever in Hollywood. This South African beauty was just the oppostive of Devil in Devil’s Advocate, sweet in Sweet November and sexy in Aeon Flux. And in this list she is at # 5, one up than Catherine Zeta-Jones. Need I say more?
# 6: Catherine Zeta-Jones
Movies Seen: The Mask of Zorro, The Legend of Zorro, The Entrapment, Intelorable Cruelty, America’s Sweethearts, The Haunting, Chicago, The Terminal, Ocean’s Twelve, High Fidelity
Catherine Zeta-Jones and her looks are legendary. Many have swooned over her while watching her movies. On top of it she is a great actress. Her chemistry with Antonio Banderas in Zorro movies, or with Sean Connery in Entrapment or with George Clooney in Intolerable Cruelty is unforgettable. So is her performance in Chicago which gave her the Academy Award.
# 7 Katie Holmes
Movies Seen: Wonder Boys, Phone Booth, Batman Begins
She shot to fame by making Tom Cruise confess his love for her by screaming on The Oprah Winfrey Show. But keeping aside all the theatrics, Katie Holmes is one of the loveliest ladies in Hollywood. Pity I have not seen enough of her, otherwise she would have been much higher up in this list. She is attractive because of her homely, innocent looks. See for yourself.
# 8: Meg Ryan
Movies Seen: When Harry Met Sally, You’ve Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle, Kate and Leopold, French Kiss, City of Angels, Courage Under Fire, The Women, DOA
She is short, she is ungraceful, she walks in a funny manner. But then that’s the uniqueness and charm of Meg Ryan. And she more than makes up for these “defects” by her awesome acting and a pair of vintage, blue eyes. And then there are those curly locks. But she’s old now and it shows. The reason why she is in this list is because she gave Hollywood and me two of the best romantic movies ever: You’ve Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle, both with Tom Hanks (God bless Tom! But then, he’ll feature in a different list).
# 9: Penelope Cruz
Movies See: Vanilla Sky, Vicky Christina Barcelona, Sahara, Bandidas, Elegy
Her exotic Spanish looks combined with her absolutely adorable Spanish accent makes Penelope Cruz a must for any list of beautiful women. Not just her cute looks, she has more sex appeal than any other women in this list. Wonder whether she is as mercurial in real life as in her on screen roles.
# 10: Lindsay Lohan
Movies Seen: Freaky Friday, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Herbie: Fully Loaded, Just My Luck, Mean Girls, Georgia Rule, The Holiday, Get a Clue
She is the “teen queen” of Hollywood, because of all the “chick flicks” she has done. A decent actress. But she is no more a teen (age 23, officially) and looks beautiful naturally. Whether this is just the charm of youth or whether her looks will endure, only time will tell. But for now she somehow made it to my list.
