What do you like most in a movie? Most audiences appreciate movies and TV programs that will captivate them, engage them from the very first to the last scene, have outstanding visuals and effects, evoke a perfect blend of emotions, and of course, feature actors and actresses that will bring the characters to life in the best possible way. A wonderful script can be transformed into a mind-blowing production if the producers and directors work with talented actors, but even the best script in the world can result in a terrible performance if the actors have no talent at all.
However, it is possible for movie and casting directors to hire some actors for reasons other than the talent that they have, because there are some characters who would sell a production more than others. When it comes to choosing actresses, it is almost impossible for the directors to turn a blind eye on just how beautiful the characters they want should be, because audiences are more likely to watch movies with famous and extremely beautiful women.
Some women have made it in Hollywood just because of how beautiful they are, which if you think about it is not a bad thing. Producers will always strive to have as many people as possible watch their productions because the viewership is directly proportional to the amount of money they will make. Therefore, producers will often not mind sacrificing talent for beauty, which is probably the case with some of the women here below.
It is, however, important to note that most of the actresses on this list do have some acting talent; it is just that their beauty outweighs their talent. Who do you think should be added on this list, and who do you think does not belong here?
15. January Jones
January Kristen Jones is an extremely hot American actress and model, who began her acting career back in 1999. Born on January 5, 1978, in South Dakota, January Jones was named after January Wayne, a character in Jacqueline Susann’s 1973 best-selling novel called Once is not Enough, something that might have pushed her into the acting scene. January Jones is famous for her role in the TV series Mad Men that aired from 2007 to 2015, the on-going Fox series Last Man on Earth, her appearance in X-Men: First Class as Emma Frost, and her role in the 2003 movie American Wedding. Despite the fact that we love January Jones so much and we never mind watching her on screen, she lacks the talent required of an actress of her level.
14. Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba would easily be the poster girl for the hottest women in the world, thanks of course, to her stunning beauty. Jessica Alba has appeared in lists of the hottest women in the world so many times, that there is not enough space here to record all of her appearances. However, Jessica Alba has ranked No. 1 or the sexiest woman alive in Maxim magazine, AskMen.com, GQ, In Style, FHM, and the Norwegian FHM, all in different years, a record that very few other women in the world can match up to. In addition, People named Jessica one of the Most Beautiful Women at Every Age in 2012, evidence of just how amazingly beautiful this woman is. Jessica Alba’s record of how much of a beauty she is far outweighs her acting career, and it is very likely that she gets those amazing roles because of her beauty and not her acting talent.
13. Kristen Stewart
People know Kristen Stewart more as Bella, a character in the worldwide hit The Twilight Saga. Kristen was born on April 9, 1990, in a family with a father who is a TV producer and a stage manager, and a mother who is a scriptwriter and film director. Kristen has a very successful acting career, since she was listed as the highest-earning actress in 2010, when she earned $28.5 million, and was Forbes’ highest paid actress in 2012, earning approximately $34.5 million that year. Kristen is also one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood, owing to the fact that she is the face of Chanel and Balenciaga, two of the world’s leading fashion brands. Over the years, Kristen has been criticized for her acting both from professional critics and movie lovers, criticisms that make it clear that her talent in acting might be somewhat lacking.
12. Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst is an actress, model, and singer who has been on the movie scene since 1989. Kristen was born on April 30, 1982, in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, and currently holds dual citizenship of the United States and Germany. Kirsten has played different roles in numerous movies, but her most popular character has got to be that one of Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker’s girlfriend in the Spider-Man trilogy. There is no denying that Kirsten is a very hot woman and we are always on her side in every movie, but it is also weird how her acting is never outstanding. Despite having won the Best Actress Award at the Saturn Awards and the Cannes Film Festival, her beauty still outshines her acting every time. Kirsten gains a spot on this list because when we often think of her, it’s because of how hot she is and not because of her acting.
11. Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis, born Milena Markovna Kunis, an American actress who was born on August 14, 1983, in Chernivtsi, Ukraine. Mila moved from Ukraine with her family to Los Angeles when she was just seven years old and immediately got involved in acting and performing arts. Mila started appearing in commercials and several TV series, before getting her first serious acting gig when she was 15 years old. Since Mila started acting she has played numerous roles and had good success over the years, success that has earned her several nominations and awards. However, just like most hot women on this list, Mila Kunis is not as talented as she is beautiful.
10. Kate Beckinsale
Kathrin Romary Beckinsale is a beautiful English actress and model who was born on July 26, 1973, in London, England. Kate is an only child of actor Richard Beckinsale and actress Judy Loe, since Richard, her paternal, father died when she was just five years old. After several small acting roles in England and a few more in the United States, Kate got her break in 2001 with her role in the movie Pearl Harbor and also the romantic comedy Serendipity. Although we cannot deny that Kate Beckinsale has had some great moments in her acting career, we cannot help but think that the fact that she is so hot might be the reason she has come so far.
9. Malin Akerman
Malin Maria Akerman is definitely one hot and gorgeous woman, who is an actress, a model, and a singer. Malin is a Swedish-Canadian hottie who was born on May 12, 1978, in Sweden but grew up in Canada.

Malin has had many appearances in different movies, with her most memorable appearances being in the movie Watchmen, where she played the character of Silk Spectre, in The Proposal and in Couples Retreat. One thing about Malin is that her beauty is striking, and she has a beautiful body. Malin Akerman is hotter than she is talented, a situation that gives her a spot on this list.
8. Paula Patton
Paula Maxine Patton is a very beautiful actress, who is always a delight to watch on screen. Paula was born on December 5, 1975, in Los Angeles, California, to a lawyer father and a school teacher mother. Paula is probably most famous for her role as Mandy in the movie Hitch, where she was the love of Will Smith’s character Alex Hitchens. Some of her other great performances include her role in Déjà vu, Jumping the Broom, Baggage Claim, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and 2 Guns. In almost all the movies she is involved in, she is always the hottest girl that falls in love with the hero of the movie. Therefore, Paula never has to do any exceptional acting, because her beauty does everything for her.
7. Rachel Bilson
Rachel Sarah Bilson is a beautiful actress who was born and raised up in Los Angeles, California. Rachel was born in a family of six, with a father who was a writer, producer, and director, and mother who was a sex therapist.

Rachel is famous for role as Summer Roberts in the TV drama series The O.C., and as Dr. Zoe on Hart of Dixie, as well as in movies such as Jumper, and The Last Kiss.
6. Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde was born on March 10, 1984, in New York. Olivia is an actress and a producer, best known for her role as Dr. Remy Hadley, in one of the most popular medical drama series on TV; House. Interesting enough is the fact that her father, her mother, her grandfather, and two of her uncles are all journalists, so you would have expected her to follow in their footsteps. However, she is currently one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood, and has starred in blockbuster movies such as Tron: Legacy, Rush, and Her, among many other productions. Just like many hot women on this list, Olivia Wilde is not what you would consider an exceptionally talented actress, but she is without a doubt an exceptionally beautiful woman.
5. Bo Derek
Bo Derek, who changed her name from Cathleen Collins, is one of those very popular actresses who made her mark in the 1980s, but is still an actress and a movie producer. Bo Derek was born on November 20, 1956, in Long Beach, California, but she moved to Germany when she was 16 years old with her then-lover John Derek, until the age of 20. Her then-husband John Derek made a low-budget romantic drama starring Bo Derek alongside some unknown German actors, and in the movie he tried capitalizing on her beauty and sex appeal. The movie was never to air until 1981, when Bo Derek had achieved sex symbol status. Bo Derek’s appearances always received harsh criticism, because her acting talent was lacking and all she had going for her was her beauty.
4. Megan Fox
Megan Fox is undeniably the perfect definition of a hot woman, an opinion that is held by arguably everyone that has ever laid eyes on her. For a woman to appear in magazines such as Rolling Stone, FHM, and Maxim, because the world considers her to be a modern female sex symbol is enough evidence of just how beautiful she is. Megan is famous for her roles in films such as Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and several other movies. Megan Fox has effortlessly won a number of modelling awards and a few film awards, all of which she won just because she is extremely hot. Let’s just say that her beauty has played a large role in making her the actress she is today not so much her talent.
3. Kate Bosworth
Catherine Ann Bosworth, better known as Kate Bosworth is undeniably one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood, and watching her on screen is always a delight. Kate, who was born on January 2, 1983, is both an actress and a model, further evidence that when people look at her, they love what they see. Kate has had a wonderful acting career, with some of her most popular films being The Horse Whisperer, Blue Crush, Beyond the Sea, and Superman Returns. However, as much as we love seeing Kate on screen, it is very likely that it is her beauty and not her acting talent that gets her all those roles. Since Kate has many more years left in her acting career, she might just surprise us one day with an outstanding performance that will win her an Oscar.
2. Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton is without a doubt one of the most popular celebrities in the world, and this is thanks to her very active social life, her acting career, her perfumes, her businesses, and even her modelling career, among other things. Paris Hilton has almost done it all, because in addition to the above, she is an author and one of the most expensive DJs you will ever come across. However, one thing we can all agree about Paris Hilton is that she has got to be the worst actress in Hollywood ever, and there are awards to prove just how bad she is. Paris Hilton has won the Golden Raspberry’s Worst Actress Award five different times, with one time being a worst actress of the decade in 2010. Furthermore, the reason she got so famous in the first place is because her sex tape leaked to the media and it became a media sensation, fame that she took advantage of and became the successful socialite we all know today.
1. Kim Kardashian
It is hard to come across anyone today who has never heard of Kim Kardashian. The interesting thing is that there is nothing that we can say Kim is really good at, except undergoing plastic surgeries, posting nude photos of herself online, and having a very successful reality show. Kim Kardashian has no acting talent, but people will watch her reality shows whenever they air. However, there is no denying that Kim Kardashian is a very hot woman, largely because she spends a lot of time and money trying to look perfect, as well as to give her fans and haters something to talk about. Kim deserves the top spot on this list, because it is amazing how successful she is despite her wanting talent.
