Jean Seberg. Anna Karina. Rita Hayworth. Stella Stevens. Nastassja Kinski. Bridgitte Bardot.
@ Reuben: I think Jeanne Moreau is beautiful
Isabelle Huppert? I think she’s very beautiful
whoops double post
Catherine deneuve. I put on her movies, turn the sound down and just watch her !
Veronica Lake (Peekaboo Hair)
Raquel Welch (Hottest wearer of a fur bikini EVER!)
I’d go for Jean Seberg, Kyoko Kagawa, or Setsuko Hara. Maybe not the physical beauty of Audrey Hepburn, or Bergman, but an enormous amount of humanity is poured into each performance that is much more attractive to me.
Jose-Asia Argento? Ugh. She looks just like her father.
Steve, please introduce me to her father lol….
I dunno, I just find her so damn sexy…
Joseph, DIVINE!!! hahaha…. great choice!
Giuletta Masina was always really fetching to me. I also (of course) love Garbo a little more than is healthy…
Brigitte Bardot, Scarlett Johansson
Laura Dern and Arletty for me ♥
And Zooey Deschanel > Scarlett Johansson, imo.
Harriet Andersson, Emma Thompson, Joan Cusack, Chiaki Kuriyama, Giulietta Masina, Mitsuko Baisho, Bryce Dallas Howard, Shannyn Sossamon, and Anna Magnani
Definitelly Natalie Wood.
Dominique Sanda. Not enough of her films on dvd.
There is a clone of this thread leading a separate life here: http://www.theauteurs.com/topics/1287/comments
It’s a real mystery to me how it came about.
‘The most beautiful woman in movie history’ – Darryl F. Zanuck said of Gene Tierney.
If there was separation of the forum into general subjects as many of us keep asking the problem of clones might more easily be solved. Well, i put 2 photos of Louise Brooks on the other thread, so why not one of Isabelle Adjani on this one? from the first film i saw her in back in the early 80s, One Deadly Summer (she’s a bit more feisty than you might think from this photo)
Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Wood, Grace Kelly, Michelle Pfeiffer, Diane Lane come to mind.
Am I the only person to think that Ebru Ceylan was very beautiful in Climates? The one particular shot that comes to mind is the one of her behind a window of the coffee shop in snowy weather… but there were many other instances when I thought she was exceptionally pretty. Of course, I still stand by all the other actresses I named but she stands out in a different way.
another thread here http://www.theauteurs.com/topics/1287, I think created in a frenzy less than a minute apart…
adding to my choices in the other thread,
Anna Karina, Claudia Cardinale, Catherine Deneuve, Monica Vitti, Irene Jacob, Kate Winslet, Setsuko Hara, Savitri, Manisha Koirala, Sharmila Tagore
all of them with remmmarkable eyes…
Anna Karina & Monica Belucci
… was: Jean Seberg
… is: Tricia Vessey
Bardot embodies sexuality and has to be the premier sex symbol of cinema. Her general malaise in Le Mepris is all the more tender because she looks so extraordinary.
Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Jean Seberg and Juliette Binoche also light up the screen, but in recent years I would say that the way Almodovar has used Penelope Cruz in Volver and Broken Embraces is the most obvious example of creating an iconic beauty. She must consider herself very lucky to have had him arrive as her chief sponsor when things looked to be going so badly before the Volver reinvention. Congrats to both of them on the result.
