Most Beautiful Actresses of All Time... so far (2010 Revised Edition)

"There are no ugly people, only strange beauties."

- Anonymous

Beauty is omnipresent and perpetual. It is everywhere if you just open your eyes to it. Beauty is for everyone. All of us can be beautiful in our own distinctive ways. That's why I believe that there's no such thing as ugly people. What makes a person so different to label another person "ugly?"

Beauty is also present in cinema. Beauty is indeed ubiquitous. There are many beautiful film actresses out there. IMHO, here are some of the actresses whose beauty is just... captivating.

Wheres Aishwarya rai?

Trevor said...

What are your thoughts on Jennifer Connelly? She bears a resemblance to Ms Adjani, no?

Iza Larize said...

Jennifer Connelly? She was cute when she was younger. And, yes, she kinda reminds me of young Isabelle. But Jennifer's features are more emphasized (esp. the eyes).

Ally V said...

Iza Larize said...

Oh yeah... I don't know why she isn't on this list :D
