Young Indian girls everywhere look up to Deepika Padukone. The actress is not only talented and gorgeous, but she is the highest-paid actress in India and a 3-time Filmfare Award winner. She was recently named as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine.
Padukone currently lives in Mumbai away from her family. When asked about them, Deepika said “I miss them, but luckily I have a life of my own, which keeps me from getting homesick. I wouldn’t want them to uproot their lives from Bengaluru just to be with me.” Besides, with her busy work schedule, there barely seems to be time left for friends and family. Bonus fact: Padukone considers religion an important part of her life and is a practicing Hindu.
The gorgeous Russian model received international recognition when she landed the cover of the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Irina Shayk was born in the Soviet Union during the late '80s, but says she inherited her South American look from her dark-skinned Turkish father.
After high school, Shayk was urged to participate in the "Miss Chelyabinsk 2004" beauty contest, and we're glad she participated and won! She went on to make her acting debut with the role of Megara, Hercules's wife in the 2014 action film, 'Hercules', alongside Dwayne Johnson. She also voiced Mila Belova in the popular 2011 videogame, 'Need for Speed: The Run'.
With her hypnotizing green eyes and a seductive smile, Russian film and theater actress, Elizaveta Boyarskaya, is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the world. Boyarskaya was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and married actor Maksim Matveyev in 2010.
Beautiful enough to be enshrined in a Russian painting, the mother and multi-talented actress keeps pushing the envelope. The actress starred in six distinct films in 2016, including taking up the role of Anna Karenina, in a direct-to-TV drama adaptation of the 1878 Leo Tolstoy novel of the same name.
Voted the best Iranian actress of the decade by Sanate Cinema Magazine, Taraneh Alidoosti and her Persian beauty is something you don't want to miss. Alidoosti began her acting career at age 17 and was highly acclaimed from the beginning.
The 35-year-old actress has maintained a steady body of work in film and is known for being very choosy about her roles, only going for challenging, dramatic characters. In early 2017, the Iranian actress announced she would be boycotting the 89th Academy Awards ceremony due to stringent visa restrictions imposed on Iranians by the Trump administration. She may not have made it to the Academy Awards but her beautiful face and talent did make it to our list.
