90 Best Actresses In Film History
One can always aspire to become an actor, and with rigorous training, reading a book or two on Stanislavski’s method, entering yourself in improv classes, and training your voice and your body, you might perform quite well in your local theatre troupe’s play. However, training until your fingers bleed might still not be enough, as you have to have that certain charisma and that magnetism that will make your performance a real success. And those two, sadly, do not come together with training. However, to be a truly great actor, you have to have both - the charm and the training, and the ladies on our list succeeded tremendously in their quest to become the best actresses possible. And, to celebrate them, we’ve created a follow-up list to our best actors article, where the ladies take center stage. So, here we are with our list of the best actresses whose performances have blown us, the critics, and the masses away. Of course, you might not agree with our ranking - in that case, give the famous actresses who you think deserve to be on the top of this list your vote.
All of these popular actresses have created memorable characters, made us laugh with their amazing wit, and cry watching their stellar performances. Some of them, like Maggie Smith, started their careers in theatre and found their cinema fame only later in life. With some, though, it’s exactly the opposite. Some have been in dozens of movies, and the younger actresses might’ve only performed in a couple, but that might’ve been just enough to put them under our radar. Any way you look at it, though, these actresses are basically incapable of sub-par performances!
So, scroll on down below to check who made it onto our list of the best actresses! And, if we’ve missed someone worthy to be here - let us know in the comments section!
