I imagine one would choose someone who is also a good actress.When i saw the question,the first name that came to me was Juliette Binoche.
Am I seriously the first person in 9 pages to mention Giulietta Masina?
I adore her, does that mean I have weird taste or something.
in no particular order:
This is a hard question!
There are/was many beuatiful actresses.
Julliette Lewis (just kidding)
I was watching a TV showing of “Ten North Frederick” with Gary Cooper as an aging upper class businessman who has a May-December romance with his daughter’s roommate. His romantic partner was played by the former model, Suzy Parker. She never could act much, but was she beautiful!
Bardot, Monica Vitti, Veronika Lake, Paulette something (the girl from Chaplin’s Modern Times)
Most gracefully beautiful in that classic Hollywood way- Ingrid Bergman!!!
Most downright sexy and gorgeous- Claudia Cardinale!!!…. Monica Bellucci in more recent times… Whoo!
Claudia Cardinale – 8 1/2 and ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST – marvelous
1. Anita Ekberg
People have different perceptions of beauty, therefore there cannot be only one beautiful film actress (or any kind of woman). My tastes vary so here are the ones I like, living and deceased.
Greta Garbo (those eyes man, shit!)
Joan Crawford (again, the eyes)
I love Bette Davis..she doesn’t fit conventional standards of beauty, but she was pretty smokin in All About Eve).
Dolores Del Rio
Lots more…but can’t recall at the moment haha
1920’s – Louis Brooks
1930’s – Vivian Leigh
1940’s – Ingrid Bergman (specifically for Notorious)
1950’s – Grace Kelly
1960’s – Natalie Wood
1970’s – Julie Christie
1980’s – Jessica Lange
1990’s – Juliette Bincoche
2000’s – Natalie Portman
Marlene Dietrich, Nazimova, Greta Garbo, Gloria Swanson, Tallulah Bankhead, Pola Negri, Bea Lilly, Hedy Lamarr, Ingird Bergman, Myrna Loy…..
As far as current actresses, Maria Schrader and Audrey Tautou are my favorites. I also thinking Angelica Houston is beautiful, maybe not the most, but she’s most definitly striking albeit that in a conventional way.
Francoise Dorleac was Catherine Deneurve’s sister who died in a horrible crash.
I’ve been in love with Audrey Hepburn since I first saw Roman Holiday when I was like six. And my other great crush was Olivia Hussey since I first saw Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet. But my more recent one has been Felicity Jones of Northanger Abbey. How do I post pictures?
I’d also have to add Catherine Deneuve to my list as well.
I first saw her in Malena and i’m still in love
THE (in my) DREAM TEAM:
