actress, classic hollywood, beauty

I prefer the days of Classic Hollywood. The women were stunning natural beauties. Those were the days before nips, tucks, and implants of all kinds.

Movie Maidens came up with a list of the best classic movie actresses. Here are the top 10.

Marilyn Monroe doesn’t need much of an introduction. She topped the list.


At number two is Hedy Lamarr. Not only is she glamorous, but she was incredibly smart too inventing radio guidance technology!

I will always remember Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Who wouldn’t place Elizabeth Taylor at number four? Did you know she made a record $1 million to play Cleopatra?

Greta Garbo comes in at number. It’s a shame she retired at 35, but she did give us 28 films to remember her by!

Ava Gardner is number six and you can’t deny it after her breakout performance as femme fatale Kitty Collins in The Killers.

The gorgeous Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly sits at number seven. If you thought Garbo was young when she retired at 35, Grace did it at age 26 after marrying Prince Rainier III.

Jean Harlow, the Platinum Blonde, is number eight. Did you know she starred opposite Clark Gable a total of six times?

Sitting at number nine is Gene Tierney. Her first role was carrying a bucket of water across stage in What a Life!

Finally, the lovely Rita Hayworth who was born Margarita Carmen Cansino. Hayworth starred in a total of 61 films throughout her 37 year career.

Which one is your favorite? Please share this if you miss the days of these natural beauties!
