Every few years, we get a new crop of talented and beautiful actresses making up the “hottest actresses” lists. There are the regulars that seem to get better-looking with age and stay in top form in terms of performance, but these lists are dominated by the young. While it is pretty much a fool’s exercise to predict which young actresses will be the best in the business in the future, we can judge which actresses will be considered the sexiest. But we’re not just judging by looks here. It would be easy to find the most gorgeous women who have acted before. We want to highlight the beauties who are also great actresses or on the verge of becoming great. Hell, we may not even love their work, but the young women on this list have proven that they have what it takes to make it in the industry. That’s got to count for something, right?
Even though the majority of the actresses on this list have been performing from a young age, most have just recently hit the spotlight. Some were known as child actors, but then they left the public eye for a time and have now returned looking completely different. While you may not consider these women “new” actresses, we will, if only because most people probably wouldn’t even be able to make the connection between who they were to who they are today. Being a gorgeous actress might seem like it’s the easiest job in the world, but these women’s abilities are constantly criticized as critics tend to judge their performances extra harshly because they’re attractive. It’s not their fault that many directors use and even abuse them as eye candy. So, we’ll be celebrating both their talents and their beauty. To make this list, we took on the arduous task of sorting through all the beautiful actresses in the world and determined which were on the brink of superstardom. Here’s what we came up with. Here are 15 New Actresses Who Will Dominate the Hottest Actress Lists of the Future.
15. Madison Pettis
If you were looking for a way to make yourself feel really old, well, you’ve found it. Everyone knows Madison Pettis. Most people, however, only know the little girl she used to be. Now she’s grown up, and it’s been a crazy transformation. Pettis was the little girl who played Sophie on Cory in the House. She also played the little girl in The Game Plan with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Yeah, she’s 19 now and knows that she looks good. Even though Pettis is still stuck making Disney movies and silly TV shows and films for the most part (see her upcoming role in Pup Star: Better 2Gether if you question that claim), we expect that her proven acting talents and newfound womanhood will transport her into the mainstream film and television industry soon enough.
14. Naomi Scott
As of today, you might only know Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger in the Power Rangers movie. She was easily the best thing in that film outside of the final credits. She also looked fantastic in it. Before that film, Scott’s biggest part came in the show Terra Nova. Scott played Maddy, the young daughter of the Shannon family, in that show. But Scott’s level of fame is about to change in a very big way. Set to play Princess Jasmine in the upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin, Scott will be on everyone’s radar in 2018. Even if the film bombs out, Scott will undoubtedly be beautiful in the role, and she will be on every magazine cover around for a long time afterward. At 24 years of age, Scott is likely just at the beginning of her career too, one we expect to reach high points in the not-so-distant future.
13. Stefanie Scott
Like so many young female actresses, Stefanie Scott first broke out on the Disney Channel. Scott played Lexi Reed in A.N.T. Farm, sharing the screen with a few other members of this list as well. Perhaps more famous for film fans, Scott also played Quinn Brenner in Insidious: Chapter 3. She then took on a leading role in the horrible film I.T., which was no fault of hers. We’ve included her in this list because Scott has several projects on the go right now, which proves that she’s desirable in the industry. She also happens to have a very interesting quality about her. Add in the fact that she’s talented and super good-looking and you’ve got yourself a can’t-miss actress.
12. Skyler Samuels
Skyler Samuels might be best remembered as Gertrude “Gigi” Hollingsworth from Wizards of Waverly Place, but this lovely actress is moving on up in the acting world. In the past few years, Samuels has landed major parts in the film The Duff and the TV series American Horror Story: Freak Show and Scream Queens. She played Bonnie Lipton and Grace Gardner, respectively, in those projects. With four more films set to be released this year, Samuels certainly isn’t hard-pressed to find work. We’re still waiting for her to find that real breakout performance, but we feel confident it’s going to come at some point soon. Maybe not this year or even the next, but it’s bound to happen for her.
11. Dove Cameron
Dove Cameron is 21 years old, a singer, an actress, and a beautiful woman. In terms of her acting career, outside of a few TV spots, Cameron has been purely a Disney star. She first rose to fame with her role as both Liv and Maddie in Liv and Maddie. From there, she landed a role in Descendants playing Mal, the daughter of Maleficent. Now, with the second Descendants movie completed, it’s anyone’s guess where Cameron’s career will lead her, but we feel strongly that she’s on the way up. Really, you can’t keep looks like hers down. She’s got the girl-next-door thing down. Somewhat of a cross between Amanda Seyfried and Emily Browning, if Cameron can hone her acting ability, she’ll be a megastar for years to come. Even if she can just stay relevant in the industry at all, her looks will keep her in front of the camera.
10. Peyton List
At 19 years old, Peyton List has only just begun to be noticed as a hot up-and-coming actress. Really, she’s been in the industry for years and has been in several big projects, albeit in smaller roles. In more recent years, she’s starred in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise. She has also had parts in shows, The Thinning and The Outcasts. She is best known for playing Emma Ross on Disney’s Jessie and the spin-off of that show, Bunk’d. But List is set to be very busy over the next couple of years. Already with a number of film projects in the works, she is bound to continue to get offers as she has clearly blossomed into one of the industry’s best-looking young stars.
9. India Eisley
India Eisley got her first big break playing the part of Ashley Juergens in The Secret Life of the American Teenager. If you need help getting a mental image, she was the younger sister of Shailene Woodley‘s character. Since that show, Eisley has not been as fortunate as Woodley in her career, but she has been busy. She landed a role in Underworld: Awakening and another in The Curse of Sleeping Beauty. It’s the future we’re looking at with Eisley. She has some acting chops, and she’s got a full list of films on the slate for the upcoming year or so. She also happens to be gorgeous, so we’re banking on her sticking around for a while.
8. Haley Lu Richardson
As one of the most talented actresses on this list, Hayley Lu Richardson might seem like a safe choice, but it’s just been in the last year or so that she has really blown up. Back in 2013, Richardson landed her first big role in the Ravenswood series playing Tess Hamilton. It really wouldn’t be until 2016 that she really made waves when she starred in both The Edge of Seventeen and Split. Showing off her flair for both the dramatic and the thrilling with these nuanced performances, Richardson showcased herself as one of the future stars of the industry. Her natural beauty makes the attractive part seem easy for her too and will undoubtedly make her seem more attractive to modern audiences.
7. Kathryn Newton
Kathryn Newton is a special talent who has shown promise from a very early age. It all started with a leading role on the show Gary Unmarried. That led her to film, snagging a part in Bad Teacher and Paranormal Activity 4. In both those films, Newton was fantastic. She then got a recurring part on Supernatural, which allowed her to continue her growth. Most recently, we saw Newton at her best in Big Little Lies. She’s now got several other projects on the go, including a film called The Pact and the upcoming Little Women miniseries. While it seems like it risks diminishing her talent, we have to talk about Newton’s looks too. Her beauty and interesting style will ensure that magazines keep her on the covers, and films and TV shows won’t be afraid to cast her in starring roles. Even if that sounds demeaning to actresses, it’s still a harsh reality in the industry.
Zendaya may have broken out through Disney Channel productions, such as Shake It Up, Zapped, and K.C. Undercover, but this beautiful singer and actress has moved onto much bigger things recently. It all changed for her when she got a part in Spider-Man: Homecoming. For many in the mainstream audience, this role put a face to the already famous name. Now, Zendaya has her sights on the upcoming and highly anticipated musical, The Greatest Showman. The all-star cast and interesting premise behind that film will be sure to catapult Zendaya to an even higher level in her career. The fact that she’s become a gorgeous woman only cements her place in the industry.
5. AnnaSophia Robb
Calling AnnaSophia Robb a “new” actress might seem a bit silly, but we’re doing it because she is kind of new at being a woman actress. She’s been in huge movies for more than a decade, but she was a child back then. It all started for her with Because of Winn-Dixie in 2005. After that came Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Bridge to Terabithia, and Race to Witch Mountain. Her roles in Soul Surfer and The Way, Way Back were the first big ones where people started to recognize that she had a flair as a dramatic actress. Even in those last two films, Robb was still a teenager, so there was a chance that she could struggle to transition into adult roles as so many young actors do. Still, there was no denying either her beauty or her talent and now, as a young woman, Robb is breathtaking. Keep your eyes out for this one.
4. Jessica Sula
It wasn’t long ago that the Welsh actress, Jessica Sulu, was a total unknown in the industry. For many, she still is unknown. In 2011, Sulu got her very first role in the British series, Skins. After that, she did a few things that kept her under the radar, but then she showed a lot of promise in Split. This role caught the attention of many and led to her getting parts in the TV series Lucifer and Godless. As of now, you might think it a stretch to include Sulu on this list, but, aside from her beauty, we believe in this young woman’s acting ability. Obviously, her attractiveness helps, but if she continues to improve, we’re thinking there’s a very good chance she puts together an impressive career when it’s all said and done.
3. Olivia Holt
Forget everything you know about Olivia Holt. Forget that she has pretty much only been a Disney Channel actress for her entire career. Forget Kickin’ It and I Didn’t Do It. Forget them even if you liked them because the new and improved Olivia Holt, the insanely attractive Olivia Holt, is about to blow people’s minds in the upcoming Marvel show, Cloak & Dagger. Holt is not only gorgeous, but she now has a great vehicle to showcase her acting talents. In what is sure to be an amazing show, Cloak & Dagger will be Holt’s real coming-out party. If you weren’t already in love with her, then you will be soon. We’re certain of it.
2. Eiza González
Eiza González is a 27-year-old Mexican actress and singer who rose to fame in the U.S. with her role in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, playing Santanico Pandemonium. For fans of the original film, this was the role played by Salma Hayek, so there were some big shoes to fill for González. But, honestly, she was a revelation. Most recently, González starred in Baby Driver as Darling and stole the screen in every scene she was in, if only because of how hot she is. Although talented, it’s been González’ looks that are most talked about. This woman is a gift from the Mexican gods, and she is going to be a highly sought-after commodity for many years to come. The year 2018 looks to be a very busy year for the up-and-coming star, so prepare yourself for plenty of her jaw-dropping hotness.
1. Ana De Armas
For most film fans, it was War Dogs that introduced us to the incredibly beautiful Cuban actress, Ana de Armas. In that film, she stole our hearts with her portrayal of Iz. Looking like a Cuban Tiffani Thiessen, de Armas was clearly much too good-looking for Miles Teller, but whatever it took to get her on screen made us happy. The next film to come out for de Armas is the recently completed film, Overdrive, which will probably be horrible, but everyone is most looking forward to seeing her in Blade Runner 2049. In that film, de Armas will fittingly be playing, Joi, the love interest for Ryan Gosling‘s character, K. At nearly 30 years old, you might think de Armas is getting too old to be considered one of the hottest actresses of the future, but this stunner is just getting started. Bank on that.
