Are there any actresses that you find absolutely stunning? Of course there is, and you are not alone. Recently, someone polled an online entertainment community asking for their best examples. Here are the actresses they named. Do you agree?
1. Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny
Marisa Tomei has always been beautiful and also cute and quirky. I watched her role in My Cousin Vinny countless times, attempting to emulate the scene wear her “biological clock is ticking.” Another favorite is when she appeared on Seinfeld with a fondness for short, stocky, bald men. I adore her.
She’s starred in other incredible films, including Only You with Robert Downey Jr., What Women Want, and Crazy, Stupid, Love. More recently, she’s dominated the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as Peter Parker’s beloved Aunt May in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man films. One user claims, “She is like the female Paul Rudd. She doesn’t look like she is aging at all.”
2. Scarlett Johansson in Black Widow
Another Marvel favorite, Scarlett Johansson, plays Black Widow in a standalone film of the same name and other films in the MCU, including all of the Avengers films.
Scarlett Johansson has been in many notable films, including Lost in Translation, Lucy, and Marriage Story. She also shines in one of my favorite ensemble films, He’s Just Not That Into You. Her films have grossed over $14.3 billion worldwide, making Johansson the highest-grossing box office star of all time.
3. Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad
Margot Robbie plays a very convincing Harley Quinn in both Suicide Squad films and Birds of Prey. She’s fun, sexy, and devilish in her role. However, it’s not at all what she’s limited to.
Margot Robbie has starred in other great films such as The Wolf of Wall Street, I, Tonya, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and she plays the titular role in the 2023 release Barbie.
4. Salma Hayek in Desperado
Salma Hayek stuns in everything she does but is probably most remembered for her role in Quentin Tarantino’s From Dusk Till Dawn, where she plays a vampire stripper, and Tarantino sucks on her toes. It’s developed a cult following.
And without ever seeing it myself, I’d believe that plays a significant factor. However, Hayek has starred in several other blockbusters, including Desperado, Wild Wild West, and Dogma.
After someone notes she is aging well, another user states, “This is the correct answer. Some people may try to deny it, but there are no other contenders.” Hayek has notable roles in films such as Once Upon a Time in Mexico, House of Gucci, and one of my favorite underappreciated Adam Sandler films, Grown Ups. Finally, she lends her voice as Kitty Softpaws in Puss in Boots.
5. Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth
Jennifer Connelly is well-known for her role as sixteen-year-old Sarah Williams in the cult classic Labyrinth with David Bowie. However, she’s been in several noteworthy films such as Requiem for a Dream, A Beautiful Mind, and Blood Diamond.
More recently, Connelly captivated audiences with her role as Penny Benjamin in the hit film Top Gun: Maverick, opposite Tom Cruise. Someone in the forum goes as far as calling Jennifer Connelly a “Goddess.”
6. Kate Beckinsale in Underworld
Kate Beckinsale is an actress and model who stuns without even trying. Some of her top roles include Pearl Harbor, Serendipity, and Click. I personally love her in Brokedown Palace, a movie guaranteed to make you cry.
Beckinsale is perhaps best known for her role as Selene, a vampire in the Underworld series, and again as a vampire killer in one of my favorites, Van Helsing.
7. Elizabeth Hurley in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
Elizabeth Hurley is an English model and actress best known for her role as Vanessa Kensington in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. Yeah, baby!
Elizabeth Hurley also played the devil opposite Brendan Fraser in Bedazzled. More recently, she embodies the role of Morgan le Fay in Runaways, based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name.
8. Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman
Gal Gadot stuns as D.C. Universes’ Diana Prince / Wonder Woman. One woman admits, “A friend and I (both straight women) during the first Wonder Woman just looked at each other and went, ‘I’m so confused right now.’ Things I thought I knew about myself.”
Gal Gadot is also well-known for her role as Gisele Yashar in the Fast & Furious franchise. She’s more recently starred in the Netflix films Red Notice and the mystery film Death on the Nile.
9. Rachel Weisz in The Mummy
It’s a long-standing discussion on the internet that the entire cast of The Mummy is hot, but Rachel Weisz is gorgeous. Her role as Evelyn Carnahan is memorialized in the first two films in The Mummy franchise (and the only ones worth watching).
Weisz has also appeared in films, including Enemy at the Gates, Runaway Jury, Constantine, and The Fountain. Finally, she recently nailed her role as Melina Vostokoff in the MCU film Black Widow.
10. Natalie Portman in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith
Natalie Portman is a stunner probably best known as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. She is Darth Vader’s true love and mother to Luke and Leia in the popular space opera.
Portman has notable films in her catalog, such as V for Vendetta, Black Swan, No Strings Attached, and Jackie, where she portrayed Jackie Kennedy. Finally, she embodies the MCU role of Jane Foster in the Thor films, establishing her as one of the world’s highest-paid actresses.
11. Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman
Charlize Theron is a beautiful actress who is not afraid to look less than attractive such as in her critically acclaimed portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster. She’s also starred in hit films, including The Devil’s Advocate, Mighty Joe Young, and The Italian Job.
Other films Charlize Theron has appeared in are: Snow White and the Huntsman and Mad Max: Fury Road, The Fate of the Furious, and she portrayed Fox News host Megyn Kelly in the biographical drama Bombshell.
12. Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality
Sandra Bullock is one of my favorite actresses, and I think she is one of the most beautiful, down-to-earth women in the world. She has a massive catalog of great romantic comedy films, including While You Were Sleeping, Miss Congeniality, Hope Floats, Two Weeks Notice, and The Proposal.
Additionally, Bullock gives outstanding performances in Crash, Ocean’s 8, The Unforgivable, The Blind Side, Bird Box, Gravity, and The Lost City. Bullock’s beauty is timeless, and she seems like she has an authentic soul. I love her.
13. Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman
Another all-time favorite, Julia Roberts, is a stunning woman I thoroughly enjoy in every performance. She shines in Pretty Woman, Steel Magnolias, Sleeping With the Enemy, Runaway Bride, and Erin Brockovich.
Julia Roberts has a massive catalog of films, including Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s 12, Wonder, Charlie Wilson’s War, and one of my most rewatchable favorites, Eat Pray Love. She is an incredibly talented actress. What do you think? Do you have a favorite actress to add to this list?
