Hedy Lamarr was one of the world’s most beloved Austrian-American actresses. She appeared in various classic MGM films, such as ‘Lady of the Tropics’, ‘Boom Town’, and ‘White Cargo’. At age 18, the actress appeared in the romantic film ‘Ecstasy’, and became the first actress to have an on-screen orgasm.
What made Lamarr unique was her second profession as an inventor. She was responsible for many inventions that helped the United States during World War II, and was posthumously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014. She was also married and divorced six times throughout her life.
At age 61, actress Michelle Pfeiffer remains one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. She has appeared in an endless list of films, including 'Scarface', 'Stardust', and more. It was challenging for her to break out of the “pretty girl” typecast in the ‘70s, but it was worth the effort.
Michelle Pfeiffer’s beauty has often been described as the kind that you have to take a moment to marvel at, which we believe holds true even today. The actress has also produced a set of her own films, and is still acting and widely admired by a huge audience of fans even today.
No list of the world’s most beautiful women is complete without Marilyn Monroe. Born in LA during the ‘20s, this young lady grew up to become one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950’s and early 60’s. Her short acting career lead to over $2 billion in revenues.
The talented model, actress and singer passed away at age 36. She lived a troubled life that was rife with depression and addictions, which ultimately led to her tragic ending. Monroe was known as the pioneer of women's sexual revolution, and will forever be remembered as its icon.
There is a long legacy of beautiful American film actresses marrying royalty from a variety of countries. Grace Kelly spent a few years as an actress, before retiring at 26 to marry Prince Rainier III. She subsequently became the Princess of Monaco, and played the role from 1956 to 1982.
The talented actress and princess had a rather unfortunate end though. While driving back to Monaco from her country home in Roc Agel, she had a stroke and lost control of her vehicle. Kelly passed away that day, and had one of the most publicized funerals in the world.
Jacqueline Bisset rose to prominence during the '60s and '70s thanks to her roles in various crime and thriller films. The English-born actress speaks fluent English, French and Italian, and was recently bestowed with France's highest civilian honor, the Légion d'honneur. Bisset currently plays mostly in made-for-TV movies and shows.
Jacqueline Bisset is known for doing the world’s first wet T-shirt scene in the 1977 film 'The Deep'. The film remains one of the actress's most iconic achievements even today. It was a bold and unique move at the time, and made the film a huge box-office success.
