And some others:
Signe Hasso (the French tutor in Heaven Can Wait, though I will admit that this is at least partially due to a personal appreciation of her wardrobe in it)
Sally Gray (in Green For Danger)
Gloria Grahame (In A Lonely Place and lots of other noirs I’ve never seen)
and the almighty Helen Mirren. as attractive as she is now, she was just out of control when she was younger.
and half the cast of La Dolce Vita
Also gotta mention Julie Andrews. “Beautiful” isn’t the word, but she has this quality that just warms my heart when I see her.
and though Claudia Cardinale has already been mentioned, I love this picture:
Can’t forget Pam Grier…
I agree with many of the other actresses whose names and photos appear above, but how about…
@Bobby — oh no, the ill-fitting crocheted string bikini that I went off about when Deck posted it on another thread makes yet another appearance. LOL
someone should really devote a whole thread to the ill-fitting crocheted string bikini
I’ll let a guy start that one. ;)
Hmm, then there’s always the misplaced thong. HA.
Beauty as always is in the eye of the beholder. One man’s mate is another man’s poison.
I forget to add Anne Bancroft!! She is a great, beautiful film actress!!
Zooey Deschanel, definitely, she is and will be my ultimate girl crush for years to come. Faye Wong, Anna Karina!, Emma Stone is my new favorite, Marion Cotillard, Audrey Hepburn (duh), Grace Kelly (more duh), Katharine Hepburn…
Was – Brigitte Bardot , Anna Karina , Monica Vitti , Claudia Cardinale , Ingrid Bergman
Is – Shu Qi , Rinko Kikushi , Blake Lively
i like women that can play Death
I’d like to add Mary Astor, who was stunning as a silent film actress and positively radiant in Dodsworth (1936), her personal favorite of her many film roles.
And, as mentioned by others, there is Louise Brooks, whose beauty shimmers in this famous 1928 photograph by Eugene Robert Richee (© Sunset Boulevard/Corbis):
the languorous feminine beauty of a young alain delon is far more compelling in its complexity then any female star
I miss that guy Liam (depressed)…
Irene Jacob & Audrey Hepburn
NATALIE WOOD!! Exotic beauty with the best eyes in the history of Hollywood! Never more beautiful than in moveis like Splendor in the Grass, and Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice.
Past – Gloria Grahame, Jeanne Moreau and Anna Karina.
Present – Faye Wong
So there is another thread of the same title …
There is a third thread which David Ehrenstein started about Handsome Male Actors, and it was quickly taken over by hetero users who felt excluded and outraged at the very idea of having to think of men as good looking. It turned into yet another Beautiful Actress thread. So, yeah, it is what it is.
If no one has mentioned my girl Theresa Russell yet, I’ll say her! And Delphine Seyrig, and since I just watched her yesterday in Ashes of Time Redux, Maggie Cheung.
