When we start pondering over the most gifted actresses in the whole Hollywood, we feel like kids in a candy store. Yet, given that we cannot speak about them all today, here is the list of the selected acts.
1. Meryl Streep
Let us begin with Meryl Streep. We wonder who on Earth may not know this vibrant dignified actress. Some may recall her merely as Cruella Del Vil in 101+ Dalmatians and threatening Miranda Priestly in Devil Wears Prada. But, in fairness, there is a plethora more films in her ‘savings box’ that have brought her as many as 3 Academy Awards and 8 Golden Globes so far.
2. Marion Cotillard
Marion Cotillard is the next lady on our list today. This charming actress of French ancestry is best remembered for her roles in Chloé, Pretty Things, Love Me If You Dare, Big Fish, and the lot.
But do you know she entered acting through a Mountain Men TV series?
3. Penélope Cruz
We know that the cinema audience often couple her together with her Mexican ‘sister’ Salma Hayek. No doubt, they have given superb co-performance in Bandidas of 2006. But Penelope alone has a lot to boast off: 79 credits on her plate, 30 years starring, can you imagine?
4. Julianne Moore
Julianne is the actress who immediately comes to mind when we think of ‘red-haired female artists’. So many pictures are there on her account: The Fugitive, Jurassic Park, Big Lebowski. Yet, she is no stranger to rom-coms, too. Say, Nine Months with Hugh Grant.
5. Helena Bonham Carter
This British lady has gifted us with so many dreamlike female characters such as Bellatrix Lestrange, Red Queen, The Fairy Godmother. Be them ‘good’ or ‘bad’, damsel-like or marginal – Helena is always on top of things.
6. Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel comes next. Seems that she had no other career way than to follow in her parents’ footsteps: a cinematographer and an actress. 500 Days of Summer, Always Say Yes, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy are the buzziest films of hers.
7. Helen Hunt
While switching to Helen Hunt might seem a twist, the latter has something in common with the Frenchwoman. She also comes from a ‘movie family’ but as opposed to Zooey Deschanel, Helen broke in 8 years earlier – at the age of 9.
8. Julia Roberts
Where Julia Roberts starts, we stop being objective. The movie icon and more-than-a-pretty-woman had never even dreamt of becoming one of the frontmost actresses in the US until she starred in Pretty Woman and Erin Brockovich.
9. Whoopi Goldberg
What to say about Whoopi Goldberg - movies, TV, theatre, social activism in the form of feminism… We are honored to have her on the list.
10. Halle Berry
And the last one is Halle Berry – the Catwoman of Hollywood.
