UR DA BEST ACTRESS... LOVE YA SO MUCH
Reese I love you! You are awesome!
a great example of a young teen actress turned mature and sophisticated. She will win many more awards and continue to choose smart and sexy roles to play.More comments about Reese Witherspoon
major star of 20s and 30s
People, vote for her. Winona isn't my fav #1 but she's definitely one of the best actresses ever: Lucas (1986), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Mermaids (1990), Night On Earth (1991), Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), The Age of Innocence (1993), The House of the Spirits (1993), Little Women (1994), Reality Bites (1994), Alien: Resurrection (1997), Girl, Interrupted (1999), Autumn in New York (2000), Mr. Deeds (2002), A Scanner Darkly (2006), Sex and Death 101 (2007), Star Trek (2009).
I hope Enough said!
Her performance in Monster was the best acting performance I have ever seen. You just forget she's acting, it's incredible.
Her performance in Snow White & The Huntsman really made her shine.
How can she not be in the top 5?

Well, it's been said that her eyes could make the sky pale. Those eyes captivated millions. One of the few Child stars who built a successful career. Through many marriages and illnesses Taylor lived a true Hollywood life to create some great films and a legendary status.
HOW IS SHE 40? She should be 1 on this list. Her eyes are just... WOW. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL. She is like, a legend. How can a legend like her be at 40 on this list.P.S. I also like Anne Hathaway and jenifer Aniston and Nicole kidman and amanda Bynes.
Doesn't need explanation.. It's shocking, she's not even on the list.
She is a wonderful young actress. Her performances in Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, The Duchess and the Edge of Love show that she is developing into a very good actress. In my opinion she should definitely be higher on the list. I think she will become one of the leading actresses of her generation.
She is amazing in pirates of the Caribbean.
Awesome performance! Sexy and beautiful body! Should definitely be #1! I mean Pirates of the Carri bean? Come on people!
She is fabulous and will have a long career. Ms. Swank is hard worker and a true talent which is rare combination. She came up from nothing to make a name for herself. She is my personal favorite.
Two oscars by the age of 30 mean nothing to you people.
she is so amazing especially p. s I love you and freedom writers

GrantzPlaceMore comments about Drew Barrymore
good at horror and comedy movies.
When I think of great acting, I think of someone that convince me they ARE the character. Jamie Lee Curtis does that. I considered Cristina Ricci, Glen Close, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sigourney Weaver, Gwyneth Paltrow. All are good, but tend toward certain genres. Jamie Lee has covered them all convincingly.
Classy and refined, she is always worth watching even when the films are not.

watch enchanted then the fighter. Where did she come from/ others pale by comparison.
Way underrated. A very good actress who doesn't always get the best roles but gives a solid performance every time out. A real pro, and easy on the eye never hurts.
Great actreess with intense feelings
Shes a hero! I adore diane lane, shes an amazing actress number 1 man!More comments about Diane Lane
the one and only Norma Desmond!
You can't tell gloria swanson and norma desmond apart after seeing the movie.
Come on people! Ever heard of Notorious? Gaslight? Casablanca? These are all classics! Get with the program!
Three-Time Academy Award winning Actress known for her powerhouse acting abilities.
Ground breaking, mainstream defying role in Basic Instinct
Fried Green Tomatoes, The Bridge of San Luis Rey, Little Black Book, Around the World in 80 Days, Dragonfly, American Outlaws, Rat Race, Waterboy, Titanic, MISERY, Dick Tracy, and the list goes on.
Most underrated actress in Hollywood. Her acting is so convincing, genuine, and powerful.
#1... just go and see Misery... no doubt, she's the best ever
great and talent actress, who makes all her movies classic and beautyful. i have seen her movies and she shines in evry of them.
She was luminous in the constant gardener, my heart actually hurt as the story unfolded. Great fun in the mummy to name just 2 well known roles.
She did so amazing in The Ugly Truth, Roswell (TV show), 27 Dresses, Love Comes Softly and Life as We Know It! She is such a talented, beautiful and amazing actress.
Whats not to love about Liv, expect she can sing but does not need to. More movies please
Amazing grace and beauty. She must select her roles to better allow her talent to shine.
Please, no one can argue with one of the girls that started it all, she was a bombshell and a great actress for her time.
You cool. I liked Mamma Mia! Yeah.. Do you ever feel like a plastic bagG? Drift
Connelly definitely has been in many great movies! She should be at least recognized in top 20. Oh, and she hasn't done any horrid movies like Twilight (Fanning), so let's go people!
Trying to get her above Dakota Fanning. That girl is so annoying... Jennifer Cornell has had too many intense roles which she has pulled off not to beat that brat. Dude. Blood Diamond. Requiem for a Dream. House of the Sand and Fog. etc. Take your pick.
Fantastic and versatile actress. Thoughtful, intelligent roles with a career that spans almost 3 decades. I think she's underrated as an actress since she's not about flash and hype. Both Jennifer and Kate Winslet belong in the top 10.More comments about Jennifer Connelly
She is the most beautiful actress I have ever seen in my life
Her performance in movies was the best acting performance I have ever seen. You just forget she's acting, it's incredible.

i super loved her... I'm a big fan of her...
She's blessed because she has a good heart and so appreciative towards her fans (Erich calls us her fans as her friends). She's successful because she works hard (workaholic) and a very good actress! She's one of the Phils. Finest and versatile actresses in her generation! God bless you always Erich Gonzales. I'm always here to support you! Love you!

ursexygurlMore comments about Sharon Cuneta
So often overlooked but always perfect in supporting or leading roles. And always lovely, as well!
Should be much higher on the list of great actresses--a truly legenday actress ever since her early film roles in GONE WITH THE WIND and THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD and then her great dramatic roles during her free-lance years after getting out of her Warner contract. Elegant lady.
the very best in everything she does. absolutely loved her in kill bill movies. made me a true fan for life. I love her
The Kill Bills, Pulp Fiction, Be Cool, Vatel, The Avengers, Les Miserables... She's great, and so hot in Kill Bill...
