Every year, several outlets vote for the most attractive women in the world. There are though, a few women whose beauty cannot be admired for only one year but forever. Naturally, each of these women has developed a legacy of its own and each of them deserves credit for their achievements. Below is our list of the most beautiful women of all time.
Jaclyn Smith is best known for her appearance as Kelly Garret in the original Charlie Angels. The position was a success, and Smith and the other Angels soared to fame the night before. Later, in 2003, Smith would move back into Angel Kelly Garret's place in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Smith has put her acting career on the back burner since the release of Full Throttle in favour of developing her own company. Since then she has worked on other TV movies and mini-series, but acting is no longer her.
Barbara Eden, the star of the iconic '60s sitcom I Dream of Jeanie, was the first crush of many people. What most people don't know, though is that she's almost moved on to her most emblematic job. At the time of the casting, the producers of the show sought to distinguish themselves from the similarly famous Bewitched show, which they had produced. In order to separate the two, the designers needed the lead of a brunette.
Unfortunately for the world, Sharon Tate is not best known for her appearances on the screen, but for her horrific and senseless murder in 1969. Sharon Tate was recognized as a rising star because of her outstanding acting skills. She was equally suited for comedy and dramatic roles. She was married to director Roman Polanski in 1968. The two of them were costars on The Fearless Vampire Hunters. The next year, however, Tate was killed in cold blood. She was 8 months old at the time of her death.
You may remember Leigh from her most famous roles in the films Gone with the Wind and A Streetcar Named Desire. She was also a successful stage actress and was perhaps more well-known at the time for her appearance on the stage than on the screen. Leigh also lamented that her appearance was a curse that distracted her from acting, and even the directors that she served with were often in agreement with her thoughts. Tragically, Leigh spent the last two years of her life-fighting tuberculosis.
Natalie Wood earned her popularity at an early age thanks to her role as Susan Walker in Miracle's hit 34th Street movie. She has also appeared in other famous movies such as Rebel Without a Cause and the West Side Story. Wood was married to Robert Wagner at the time of her sudden death. She, Wagner, Christopher Walken, and the master of the yacht were the last ones on board the ship when she died. The lawsuit was revived in 2018 with Wagner as an involved party.
Sophie Marceau is a French actress who made her debut in the 1980 French film La Boum. After her debut, she remained in Europe and acted in a variety of other European films before making her way to Hollywood. Once she gets her biggest roles in Braveheart and James Bond movies, The World is Not Enough. Sophie also complained that she did not believe she was stunning, but rather photogenic.
Ava Gardner was born and brought up in South Carolina. At the beginning of her career, her accent was so heavy that people sometimes had difficulties recognizing her on the West Coast. She was initially hired by MGM studios, where she worked as an actress for five years before having her big break in The Killers movie. Unfortunately, Ava led a life of excess and unhealthy habits, resulting in her contracting emphysema and suffering two strokes that left her crippled at the end of the 1980s.
Raquel Welch appeared in a couple of movies before she got her big break. When it had come, the whole world would have seen this rising star. Her big break came with the release of the film One Million Years B.C., famous for its fur bikini outfit. She appeared in a variety of other movies, most notably Legally Blonde with Reese Witherspoon. She also won the "Imagen Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award" in 2001.
Called Gladys Camille Sorey, Julie Gibson changed her name after she began working in the film industry. She's one of the last surviving Golden Age actors, and she's the last living person to have collaborated with the original Three Stooges. Her first appearance was about 80 years ago, and she soon grew to fame. We would like to congratulate Julie on her 105th birthday.
Kim Novak was first hired by Columbia Pictures to replace Rita Hayworth, another popular actress from the 1940s, whose popularity was on the decline. The studio also hoped that she would help them compete with 21st Century Fox’s Marilyn Monroe. Her big break comes with the release of Alfred Hitchcock’s hit film Vertigo. She continued to act from the 1960s until the 1990s when she retired from show business. She was later diagnosed with breast cancer, but thankfully it went into remission, and she is still with us today.
Without considering the legend, Audrey Hepburn, a list of the most stunning women of all time will not be accurate. Hepburn had a big break after appearing in the Roman Holiday movie opposite Gregory Peck. Her fame can only rise from there. She is the winner of the Golden Globe, the Academy Prize and the BAFTA Award. Unfortunately, like many early actresses, Hepburn lived a life of poor habits. Years of smoking and heavy alcohol caught up with her as she contracted stomach cancer, which would eventually lead to kill her.
Michelle Pfeiffer began acting at the end of the 1970s, but she was mostly limited to small parts for which the filmmakers "Just wanted a pretty face." Fortunately, she managed to break this pattern and continued to play more serious roles in the 1980s and 1990s. Scarface was the film that broke this loop for her.
Charlize Theron didn't have a simple childhood to grow up. She was born and raised in a small farm in South Africa, where she lived with her parents until she was 15 years old. When Theron turned 15, her father, a notorious alcoholic, tried to kill his wife and daughter in a drunken rampage. Her mother killed him in self-defence. After the crash, Charlize decided to become a ballet dancer, but the rigorous preparation gave her body a lot of issues. Later she switched to acting, and she didn't look back.
Ursula Andress is now one of the biggest names in film due to her appearance as the original Bond Girl, acting opposite Sean Connery in the 1962 James Bond movie Dr. No. Her voice was actually dubbed for the release of the video. This was done to disguise her, a very thick, Swiss-German accent. Despite this the role allowed her to rapidly ascend to the top ranks of the day's actresses.
Marilyn Monroe is on this list, of course. It would be difficult to include a list of famous actresses and not to have the legend itself. More than 50 years after her death, Marilyn Monroe still has a significant influence on pop culture. She is one of the most popular actors of all time, and she also briefly dated the King herself. Monroe, however, died tragically at the age of 36.
Hedy Lamarr first came to fame with her, let's say risky performances. She was the first actress to represent something we're not going to list here but feel free to look at it. Her acting career, while remarkable, is secondary to her other contributions to the universe. Unfortunately, owing to the unscrupulous usage of the patent scheme by the US Army, she will be refused some benefit or even credit for her efforts for many years. Since the outbreak of the Second World War, she realized she needed to do anything to help. She went on to develop the "frequency hopping" method, a technique designed to deter enemy vessels from interfered with torpedo control systems. She was given copyright, but it sat unused until it expired, at which point the US Army took complete advantage of her efforts without giving her any recognition she deserved. Hedy Lamarr is far from the first inventor to have been mistreated by the army. At least they were
Grace Kelly has a storey that is completely special, only lately has anything similar occurred. Grace Kelly worked as an actress in Hollywood for just about five years, but during that period she earned a reputation as one of the best people of the era. She was later married to Prince Ranier III of Monaco. Being a princess, she was forced to give up her acting dream, but that was not the end of Grace's career. Grace Kelly was forced to retire from working as a princess. The career was and still is, considered by most aristocratic families as uncouth. For Grace, though, this meant that she had more time and money to fulfil her real love, philanthropy, and painting. Tragically, Grace died in a car crash following a stroke. Her daughter was in the car at the time, too, but she was fortunate enough to survive the accident.
Bisset started her career in Hollywood by playing small roles in major movies. She soon made a name for herself due to her outstanding acting talents, which contributed to her big break in the hit film Bullitt. After that, she continued to play more leading roles in other great movies of the period. Her most emblematic appearance was in the 1977 film The Deep, in which she was seen walking out of cold water wearing only a white t-shirt.
Claudia Cardinale is an Italian-Tunisian actress whose success started when she won a special competition called "The Most Beautiful Italian Girl in Tunisia." The grand prize was a trip to Italy. Her career has been slowed down, but not disrupted by her linguistic problems in Italy. She was brought up in Tunisia and taught Sicilian, not Italian. She also spoke in a strong French accent. This did not deter her from providing modelling and acting jobs.
Brigitte Bardot started her career as a dancer at an early age before going on to the film industry. She became an actress in the 1950s and had a big break with the release of Robert Vadim's movie And God Made Women. Later, she will go on to become a vocal animal rights activist. Things weren't just roses and rainbows for Bardot, though, since she was fined five times for racial hatred.
