During the Golden Age of Hollywood, every new movie was new and different, but it was always hard to find good actors. The success of each movie was built around the Big Eight film studios and their famous actors and actresses, who were basically just regular employees with very strict contracts.
Back in the day, people thought they were beautiful, and it’s easy to see why.
10. Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor was so popular that she was one of the first people to get royalties worth more than a million dollars, and that’s not even taking into account how her beauty and charm made men go crazy for her. Most of her movies have become classics and have won a lot of awards.
9. Lana Turner
Lana’s good looks and great body helped her have a wild career. Lana Turner was married seven times and had a lot of one-night stands. Because of this, she was often criticized for being too carefree. But as the saying goes, business is business, so despite all of that, any studio that hired her was sure to make a lot of money.
8. Ava Gardner
In the 1940s and 1950s, she was one of the most beautiful stars in the sky. At the beginning of her career, it wasn’t easy for Ava. She had to sit through a lot of small roles before Robert Siodmak asked her to take the lead. Since then, Gardner has been in another 49 well-known movies.
7. Marilyn Monroe
People’s admiration of an actress’s beauty decades after she was famous says a lot about her. Marilyn Monroe’s fans still think of her as if she were still alive. Even though she died young, she will always be known as the person who made blondes cool again.
6. Vivien Leigh
Vivienne is one of those once-in-a-generation women who just make everyone fall in love with her. She had a bad attitude, so only a small number of directors would ever want to work with her. Because of this, she has only made 21 movies, but each one is a masterpiece.
5. Veronica Lake
Veronica was the first actress to make long hair popular in movies, and she became known for styles that covered one eye. After a terrible accident on the set, she lost the baby she was carrying, and her career started to go downhill quickly.
4. Joan Fontaine
She was born Joan de Havilland, but she had to change her name so she wouldn’t hurt the career of her older sister, who had taken her father’s name. This didn’t stop Joan from becoming one of Alfred Hitchcock’s favorites and winning many prestigious film awards.
3. Sophia Loren
The famous singer and actress used to run Hollywood like it was her own backyard. Sophia won all of the most prestigious film awards, and she was the first person to win the Oscar for best foreign-language film. It was only right that she got the Honorary Academy Award for Career Achievement from the film academy.
2. Grace Kelly
Kelly has been in the business for only four years, but most of her crazy fame is thanks to Alfred Hitchcock. He was so smart that he saw how talented she was and made her the main character in his best thrillers. In 1956, she stopped being an actress and married Prince Rainier III of Monaco.
1. Audrey Hepburn
Audrey was beautiful, smart, and classy, and many people think she was the best actress in history. This is how the world remembers her. Her first big role put her in the spotlight as one of the Oscar nominees. Since then, she has won and been nominated for many more awards and honors. She was named the third-best actress ever by the American Film Art Institute.
