    Let me tell you, most of these actresses are on this list for all the wrong reasons like Halle Berry & Kristen Stewart.

    The only actresses that deserved to be on this list were Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone & Emma Watson, Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman and the other great actresses that actually starred in great movies and that are respectable people by not only “regular people” but also respected by their industry!

  • Evie

    I don’t get how the hell miley did it at #2 but im cool with others like Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, Vanessa Hudgens, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry & angie jolie

  • BarneyLegendary


    And when the Pope say “jump off a bridge”, I’m sure YOU would do it! That’s kinda stupid, really. She isn’t a lesbian and even if she were – she were still a better person than you are!

  • Dove

    I’m here for classy and talented young women like Nina, Emma, Emma Stone, Natalie, and Jennifer Lawrence who aren’t on here for drugs, famewhoring, or scandals.

  • Selma

    YAY for Vanessa ! She deserves it so much :)
    Kristen Stewart ? Lol she’s only famous for her scandal.

    Thanks Haters! thanks to you and your comments Kristen came in first place!

    Keep it up!

  • Diane

    Where are the beauties like Kerry Washington, and Gabriel Union? Why are there no Blacks on this list?
    And don’t mention Halle, because she is half white.

  • Nessie

    Anne Hathaway, my diva <3

  • Deborah

    Gwyneth Paltrow is the best even if is not there!!!!!!!!

  • Sofia

    This list should consist of the actresses that get the most posts/comments on here. Some of these women are completely ignored on here. So how can they be favorites?

  • willanka

    I’m kind of surprised Nicole Kidman didn’t make even the top 20. Posts about her always seemed to attract readers, at least I thought so.

  • Heidi Bivens


    HEY MANISTON-LOVER we know that you post multiple comments with different names. you need help!


    Chinnifer is a HOMEWRECKING CU.NT bahahah
    no scream at the ocean for that plasticsurgeryaddict LoL

  • Dieter

    @Joboots: From personal experience: tight ass + loose poon any day over tight poon and loose ass !!!!!

  • chrome

    thank god i have never commented on all the Minka kelly gym threads. But it would have been funny if she had made the list. Dare people to try to watch more than 15 min of Charlie’s Angels. The army doesnt have to waterboard anymore just use her voice

  • Gethelp

    @TrashyJolie: stop spamming ” i am god too you” Keep focusing on Gerald Butlers threads wich you have already ruined

  • Fefe

    what ? is this list based on how popular these actresses are
    I mean I’m also cool with Natalie Portman, Emma Watson,Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Lawrence,Emma Stone,Mila Kunis
    but Miley…a #2 actress and…Kristen stewart in #1 ? these( top) spots were clearly based onhow often we’ve seen their faces in the media…NOT their talent

  • bobbi

    Jennifer Lawrence!!

    Angelina has done more good than all of these women combined!! she should have been number one..but then again charity doesn’t get you the recognition when you sleeping with your director!

  • LooseLipz

    Miss Piggy.
