Hollywood is full of gorgeous actresses. Not that we are surprised. After all, to make it in the acting industry one needs to possess not only extraordinary acting talent, an enormous amount of good luck and a good work ethic but also an attractive personal appearance.
Humans are visual creatures. We admire beauty and we want to be surrounded by it. When we go to the cinema we expect the actors – and in particular actresses - in whatever film that we have chosen to meet our standards of beauty. That’s why adaptational attractiveness is a thing. Characters that are described as unattractive or plain in books are often given a makeover in movies. Take Hermione Granger for example. She is no beauty in books. And yet Emma Watson, the actress who portrays her on the big screen, is among the most beautiful women in the world. Not that we’re complaining. Watson did a great job at playing Hermione. And the fact that she’s a stunner is simply a bonus. We can overlook the discrepancies between the books and the movies.
Watson is not the only stunning starlet out there. There are plenty of others we have a crush on. Go ahead and choose some to get matched with a blonde wifey!
Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t really need an introduction. She is one of Hollywood’s best known – and best loved – actresses. She made her film debut more than 10 years ago, back in 2008, when she was cast as Tiffany in the 2008 drama film Garden Party. She came to international attention two years later, in 2010, when she appeared in the mystery drama film Winter's Bone. The following year she was cast as Mystique in X-Men: First Class and the year after that, in 2012, she found herself starring as Katniss Everdeen in the science fiction adventure film The Hunger Games (IMDb).
Emilia Clarke is one of the most popular TV actresses out there, at least at the moment. If you’re a fan of the fantasy drama TV series Game of Thrones then you are obviously well aware that Clarke plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons and Breaker of Chains, on the show. It was this role that made Clarke famous although of course it was by no means her first acting gig. Indeed, she has been acting ever since 2009 according to IMDb.
Before Margot Robbie made it big in Hollywood she starred in quite a few Australian soap operas, including Neighbors and Pan Am. She made both her TV debut and her film debut in 2008 but did not come to prominence until 2013 when she was cast as Naomi Lapaglia, Leonardo DiCaprio character’s wife, in the biographical black comedy crime movie The Wolf of Wall Street. Today Robbie is also known for portraying Harleen Quinzel or Harley Quinn in the DC Extended Universe (IMDb).
Scarlett Johansson is another talented Hollywood actress that needs no introduction. She has been acting ever since she was a child and in consequence has a rather extensive filmography. For example, as a child she was cast in films such as Manny & Lo, North and Ghost World. As an adult she appeared in Lost in Translation, The Prestige, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Her, Lucy and Under the Skin. Some may also be very well aware that she portrays Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (IMDb).
Natalie Portman first gained recognition when she was still a mere child. She starred in the 1994 drama mystery film Léon: The Professional but found herself negatively affected by the attention that she received. Nonetheless, she stuck to acting (even if she did leave Hollywood briefly so as to get a degree in psychology) and later also made an appearance in films such as Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Black Swan, Thor, Closer, V for Vendetta, and No Strings Attached (IMDb).
Recently Emma Watson appeared in films such as the 2012 coming-of-age drama film The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the 2013 satirical crime film The Bling Ring, the 2017 musical romantic fantasy film Beauty and the Beast and the 2017 techno-thriller film The Circle. This year she is due to appear in the coming-of-age period drama film Little Women. Still, most of us will forever associate Watson with the role that made her famous – that of Hermione Granger in the popular Harry Potter film series (IMDb).
Gal Gadot first came to international attention when she landed the role of Gisele Yashar in the 2009 action film Fast & Furious, the fourth film in The Fast and the Furious film franchise. She later reprised her role in the film’s sequels. Of course, today Gadot is known not for her role of Gisele but rather for her role of Wonder Woman. Gadot first portrayed Wonder Woman in the 2016 superhero film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The following year she reprized her role in two superhero movies – Wonder Woman and Justice League. According to IMDb, she is not due to appear in any movies this year. However, we will see her reprising her role of Wonder Woman in the 2020 superhero film Wonder Woman 1984.
Who’d say yes and who’d say no to Mila Kunis? Kunis first came to prominence in the late 90’s when she landed the role of Jackie Burkhart in the popular TV series That ‘70s Show, which was on air from 1998 to 2006. It was on set of this sitcom that Kunis first met her current husband, Ashton Kutcher, who played the role of Michael Kelso. Kunis has not just stuck to TV work however. Indeed, today her filmography boasts such films as Friends with Benefits, Bad Moms, Black Swan and The Spy Who Dumped Me (IMDb).
Sophie Turner made her acting debut in 2011 when she bagged the highly-coveted role of Sansa Stark, a member of the House Stark, in the fantasy drama TV show Game of Thrones. As most are probably well aware, it was this role that turned Turner into an international celebrity pretty much overnight. Today some might also associate this stunning redhead with her role of Jean Grey or Phoenix in the 2016 superhero film X-Men: Apocalypse, a role she is due to reprise later this year in the superhero film Dark Phoenix (IMDb).
Most of us associate Kaley Cuoco with her role of Penny in the popular CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. It was for this role that she received a Critics Choice Television Award, two People’s Choice Awards and a Satellite Award. Of course, The Big Bang Theory is not the only show that Cuoco has starred in. You might have also glimpsed her in the TV series Charmed (in which she was cast as Billie Jenkins) and the comedy TV show 8 Simple Rules (in which she starred as Bridget Hennessy according to IMDb).
Penelope Cruz is a gorgeous woman but she has more than just her looks going for her. Indeed, she is an incredibly skilled and ambitious actress. While she initially only starred in Spanish films it was not long before she was noticed by Hollywood directors. Today we tend to link her to films such as the 2018 psychological thriller film Everybody Knows, the 2011 swashbuckler film Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the 2001 science fiction psychological thriller Vanilla Sky and the 2008 romantic comedy drama film Vicky Cristina Barcelona (IMDb).
Who’d say yes and who’d say no to Blake Lively? This blonde actress is to this day best known for her role of Serena van der Woodsen in the once incredibly popular teen drama TV series Gossip Girl (on air between 2007 and 2012). After the show ended Lively turned her attention to film. For example, she has starred in movies such as the 2005 comedy drama film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, the 2011 superhero film Green Lantern, the 2016 romantic comedy Cafe Society, and black comedy mystery film A Simple Favor (IMDb).
Who’d pick and who’d pass on Lea Seydoux? As is probably quite obvious from her name alone, Seydoux is a French actress. Initially she starred in French movies only but in the late 00’s she transitioned to Hollywood films. You might recall seeing her in the 2009 Quentin Tarantino’s war film Inglourious Basterds, the 2011 Woody Allen’s fantasy comedy film Midnight in Paris, the 2011 action spy film Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, the 2014 comedy film The Grand Budapest Hotel and the 2015 spy film Spectre (in which she portrayed Bond Girl Madeleine Swann according to IMDb).
Emma Stone is one of Hollywood’s best known leading ladies, and for good reason. She is not only incredibly beautiful and exceptionally talented but also down to earth and funny. She made her TV debut in 2005, when she appeared in one episode of the supernatural drama TV series Medium. Her film debut came about two years later, in 2007, when she was cast as Jules in the coming-of-age teen comedy film Superbad. Three years later, in 2010, she bagged the role of Olive Penderghast in the teen comedy film Easy A (IMDb) and became an international star.
The stunning – and talented – actress Anne Hathaway made her breakthrough back in 2001 when she bagged the role of Mia Thermopolis in Disney’s comedy The Princess Diaries. Four years later, in 2005, she made a transition into adult roles. She starred in the crime drama Havoc and the romantic drama Brokeback Mountain. The following year, in 2006, she played the role of Andy Sachs in the comedy drama film The Devil Wears Prada (IMDb), thus establishing herself as a leading Hollywood actress.
Amanda Seyfried was only 11 years old when she began modeling. Four year later, at the age of 15, she landed the role of Lucinda "Lucy" Montgomery, a series regular, in the popular – and long-running – soap opera As the World Turns. More soap opera projects followed and before she knew it, Seyfried was offered the role of Karen Smith in the iconic 2004 teen comedy film Mean Girls. Today we associate her with her role of Sophie Sheridan in the 2008 jukebox musical comedy film Mamma Mia! (and its sequel, the 2018 Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again according to IMDb).
Rachel McAdams made her Hollywood debut in the early 00’s, and to be even more specific, in 2002 when she landed the role of Sally Garfield in the comedy film My Name is Tanino. Two years later, in 2004, she was cast in the iconic teen comedy Mean Girls as well as the romantic drama film The Notebook. Both films turned out to be incredibly successful and as such, McAdams became an overnight celebrity. Last year she starred in the black comedy mystery film Game Night but does not appear to have any projects lined up for this year (IMDb).
Room, Kong: Skull Island, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, 21 Jump Street, 13 Going on 30, The Spectacular Now, Trainwreck, Hoot and Don Jon are some of the films that Brie Larson has appeared in over the years. Like most actors, initially she played supporting roles but has since expanded to leading roles in independent movies. This year Larson is due to appear in at least two movies, both of which fall under the category of superhero film – Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame (she will portray Carol Danvers or Captain Marvel in both of them according to IMDb).
Like so many other Hollywood actresses, Keira Knightley also began acting back in the 90’s, when she was still just a child. However, she did not make a name for herself until the early 00’s when she transitioned into adult roles. Today we tend to associate Knightley with films such as the 2005 period drama film Pride and Prejudice, the 2018 biographical drama film Colette, the 2003 Christmas-themed romantic comedy Love Actually, the 2003 fantasy swashbuckler film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and the 2012 historical romantic drama film Anna Karenina (IMDb).
X-Men, The Piano, Fly Away Home, X2, She’s All That, Almost Famous, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Tell It to the Bees, Finding Forrester, 25th Hour, Scream 4 and Darkness are just some of the movies that we tend to think of when we think of Anna Paquin. Over the course of her professional life she has been awarded one Oscar (for her performance in the 1993 drama film The Piano) and one Golden Globe Award (out of four nominations according to IMDb).
Pick or pass Sienna Miller? According to IMDb, Miller made her acting debut in 2001, in the romantic comedy film South Kensington. It was another eight years before she made her breakthrough. In 2009, she was cast in the military science fiction action film G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. She is pretty active in Hollywood to this day. For example, last year, in 2018, she starred in two movies and this year she is due to appear in at least one film (the action film 17 Bridges).
Kristen Stewart is yet another actress who began acting when she was a mere child. Stewart first gained notice in the early 00’s, and to be more exact, in 2002, when she landed the role of Sarah Altman in the thriller film Panic Room. Still, it was only as an adult that she became truly famous. The role that turned her into a celebrity overnight was that of Bella Swan in the 2008 romantic fantasy film Twilight. She later reprized her role in the film’s four sequels (IMDb).
Millie Bobby Brown?
Millie Bobby Brown is the youngest starlet on this quiz. She rose to fame three years ago, in 2016, when she bagged the role of Eleven or Jane in the science fiction thriller web TV series Stranger Things. It was for this role that she was awarded a Teen Choice Award (out of four nominations) and nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards. This year you can also expect to see her in the upcoming monster film Godzilla: King of the Monsters in which she will play the role of Madison Russell according to IMDb.
Who’d pick and who’d pass on Abigail Breslin? Breslin is one of those ambitious actresses who began acting when they were still mere children. Indeed, Breslin was only five years old when she starred in her first movie, the 2002 science fiction thriller film Signs. Some other films that you might have seen her in include the 2009 post-apocalyptic comedy film Zombieland, the 2006 comedy drama film Little Miss Sunshine, the 2008 romantic comedy drama film Definitely, Maybe and the 2009 drama film My Sister’s Keeper (IMDb).
