You've watched princesses and divas grace the screens, big in the theater at first, then on your personal tube at home, and even though you've seen these movies dozens of times, have you ever wondered if the women behind the voices can make you feel the same way as their illustrated counterparts? All the women on this list have unique talent only heightened by their natural charm and beauty. Most are our favorite Disney princesses, but there are a couple on here that might surprise you as well as bring back fond memories.
These lucky ladies not only have gotten to work with the best of the best, but they acted their butts off to give us performances that make their animated characters come to life in our minds and hearts. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the characters are sweet, sexy, and perfect in just about every way!
Who are the women behind the magic? It stands to reason that, with the exception of Dory from Finding Nemo, that if these actresses can manifest a fleshed out and fascinating female lead, that they themselves must have that special something! I'll tell you a little bit about each of the actresses I picked and how they landed the roles that will carry them down as legends in animated history.
16 Kristen Bell - Princess Anna
Kristen Bell is one hard working mama. She's been acting since she was thirteen, and has a long list of film credits for highly praised movies. It was her role in Veronica Mars that truly propelled her to stardom.
15 Anika Noni Rose - Tiana
14 Jodi Benson - Ariel
13 Mandy Moore - Rapunzel
Mandy Moore is as busy as busy can be. She landed the role to voice Rapunzel in Disney's Tangled in 2010. But that's just a little slice of this actress's massive work load. She has been a part of film and TV for ages, and also has her fingers in philanthropy, helping in a variety of needs to help the people who are less fortunate in the world.
