Top 100 Best Hollywood Actresses Of All Time

Greatest Hollywood Actresses of All Time

Who are the best hollywood actresses? Since the beginning of the cinema there has always been a partiality in choosing the female talents as compared to male talents. Major Film Production companies and talent agencies choose male talent on the basis of acting, skills and looks. But this isn’t true for choosing the female talent. Most girls are chosen as actress just because of their looks. This is obviously because people want to see beautiful faces on screen instead of talented actresses and production companies wants to utilize this fact. Probably this is the reason why we dont have a huge pool of talented actresses as compared to actors.

However, there are still actresses who proved that they are not in industry just because of looks. In fact many of them not only became fan favorites but global icon. Here is a list of 100 Such talented actresses who not only have won millions of hearts globally but also are awarded some of the most prestigious award in the film industry. In this list of best actresses of all time we tried to include best actresses of almost every decade starting from the silent era of 1920s to the latest 2010s decade.

1920s was the decade when the cheesecake photos of several glamorous models and actresses became hugely popular in mass media and such models came to be known as Pin Up Girls. The decade of 1930s, 1940s and 1950s saw a rise in the number of pin up girls and $ex symbols. Jayne Mansfield, Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe were some of the most popular names.

The popularity of these pin up girls led to an assumption that beautiful girls can do much better as an actress than a talented female actor. This trend is still in continuation. However, several female actors have proved this assumption wrong.
