When most people think of Hollywood, they think of gorgeous American women. While some A-List stars are born and bred in Los Angeles and have Hollywood in their blood, countless stars come from small towns in the Midwest and up north, chasing their dream. However, if you look past all the American born actresses, there’s another huge group in Hollywood – Brits. That’s right, many British actresses get their start in their native UK and end up coming to Hollywood for the opportunities available. While the British are big on theatre and classical dramatic training, if you’re looking to star in feature films, Hollywood is the place to be.
So, thanks to the lure of Hollywood, North America has been blessed with an influx of drop dead gorgeous British women with killer accents. Some of them are only in sunny California for as long as they’re filming, others split their time between Los Angeles and London, others have totally moved their lives to America and simply go back periodically to visit family and friends back home. Regardless of what got them to Hollywood, there’s one thing that’s clear – Britain has birthed some absolutely stunning women over the years.
Here are 10 of the hottest female British celebrities.
10 Emily Blunt
9 Emma Watson
Emma Watson is a bit unusual – while many British superstars burst into the public eye in their late teens or early twenties, Watson basically grew up in front of the camera in her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise. She went from an adorable bushy-haired girl to a sleek, sophisticated fashion icon. Now that she’s wrapped up Hermione Granger’s story, she’s been taking on film roles that allow her to branch out a bit, and in addition to her superb acting talent, let’s just say it – Watson has passed the awkward teenage years and transformed into an absolutely gorgeous woman. Plus, she’s become known over the past few years for her strong voice when it comes to gender equality. Smart and sexy – that’s a killer combination.

Young British actress Emilia Clarke was doing what all aspiring actresses do in the UK – starring in countless theatrical productions and taking on small roles on British television shows. Then, she snagged the role of Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s hit Game of Thrones, and she was catapulted to superstardom. Everyone quickly became obsessed with Khaleesi, the ethereal blonde who packed a surprising amount of power and attitude into her small frame. Critics absolutely love her in the role as the powerful mother of dragons – she’s gotten nominations for Emmy Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, People’s Choice Awards and more – and men love tuning in to watch the British bombshell week after week.
