Ariel Winter is a beautiful young woman. Talented and extremely accomplished, she is a pivotal part of the show Modern Family and there are a lot of people that don’t seem to realize that her voice has been heard in many movies and other shows. Fantastic at what she does for a living, that may play a part in the supreme amount of confidence in herself that she seems to exude in every picture which is a large portion of the reason she attracts so many. On top of that, she has curves in all of the right places and seems happy to wear clothes that show off what she is working with, which is always going to be well-received by many.
That said, considering that so much has been made of Ariel’s looks over the last year, it left us reflecting on several other actresses whose looks appear to fly under the surface a lot. Included in that list of people that we’re surprised don’t receive more attention are some that arguably are even more attractive than the young actress that seems to be the talk of the town. We have no interest in deriding how anyone looks, at least of all the young Modern Family actress, but we do want to celebrate the looks of some women we feel go underappreciated by some. That is what inspired us to put together this list of twenty actresses that are hotter than Ariel Winter.
In order for someone to be considered for inclusion on this list, she first needs to be well-known as an actress at least by a sizable group. That person doesn’t have to be a household name. In fact, that is more of a hindrance to her ranking than anything. The only other requirement is that she needs to be attractive enough for us to feel that she’s actually hotter than Ariel Winter. Finally, we want to make it clear that we realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and everyone may not agree with our choices. However, we do feel that there is a strong argument to be made.
20 Sophia Bush
When Sophia Bush was cast as Brooke Davis in One Tree Hill, judging from the early episodes of the show, it seems as though she was intended to play a small role and was only there to look pretty. Going on to be one of the most important parts of the show, she would go on to show the world that she had charisma and poise to spare. Also seen in movies like John Tucker Must Die, The Hitcher, and the show Chicago P.D., if you are like us, then you are delighted every time she gets a role in something major. Possessing a s*x appeal that we can best describe as smooth and smokey, she has a body to die for and a face for the ages, which would be hard for anyone to stack up to.
19 Sarah Hyland
A castmate of Ariel on Modern Family, the popular comedy series has turned both actresses into stars, which makes comparing them inevitable. Playing sisters onscreen each week, Alex and Haley, the characters they bring to life couldn’t be more different. This makes it the reason as to why it has been fun to see them get along on set and in real life from what we can tell. Also seen in movies like XOXO, Scary Movie 5, and Struck by Lightning, as impressive as that is, when it comes to the resumes these two have put together, the edge totally goes to Ariel for us. On the other hand, in the looks department, we have to give Sarah Hyland the slight edge for her winning smile, tight figure, and delightful bottom.
18 Emily VanCamp
First coming to true prominence when she was cast in one of the lead roles in the series Everwood, Emily VanCamp’s work on the show earned her a lot of fans. Going on to make an even bigger name for herself when she was cast in the lead role in the popular drama series, Revenge, that and her performance in the show Brothers & Sisters make her a TV mainstay. Recently making the jump to the big screen as part of the MCU in two Captain America movies, we look forward to seeing her do her thing going forward. A blonde who blows away virtually everyone on sight and impresses with her performances, she seems to have it all going on.
17 Allison Williams
The daughter of famed newscaster, Brian Williams, we can only imagine what it must have been like for Allison Williams growing up in the shadow of a famous and powerful man like that. Going on to turn herself into a star, she was given one of the lead roles in the Judd Apatow-produced and Lena Dunham-created show, Girls, which would become a critics darling overnight. With that show recently coming to an end, she doesn’t seem to be slowing down considering she played an important role in one of the most talked about films this year, Get Out. A beautiful brunette that can look elegant with the greatest of ease, she has also been at home playing a highly s*xual lady, which makes her seem like a total dream girl.
16 Madeline Zima
Another former child star, Madeline Zima first came to prominence when she played one of the main characters in the sitcom The Nanny and was a lovable part of the show. Maturing a lot since then, she is thirty-one years old at the time of this writing and has grown to be an attractive woman. Seen in movies like The Collector and shows like Heroes and Californication, in the latter show, the world got to see her topless and it was glorious. Most recently seen in a couple of episodes of the Twin Peaks revival, it is great to see her still getting tapped for important parts. Shown in the past to be quite the enticing lady, she deserves to get her due as a hot woman a lot more of the time.
15 Hilary Duff
At one time part of the Disney machine, Hilary Duff played the titular role in the show Lizzie McGuire and its film adaptation, which earned her a lot of fans. Taking full advantage of that, she would become a rather large teen star after that, in between her music efforts and movies like Agent Cody Banks, Cheaper by the Dozen, and A Cinderella Story. She isn’t in the spotlight as much as she once was, but if there is something about her that’s discussed a lot, it is her beauty and body. Possessing one of the most tantalizing booties in Hollywood, Ariel Winter has curves for days but a derriere as round as Hilary’s deserves all the praise in the world.
14 Ashley Greene
The Twilight film franchise is one of the most polarizing we’ve seen take Hollywood by storm in recent years. Whether you love it or hate it, there is one great thing to come of it that everyone should celebrate, the introduction of Ashley Greene into the pop culture lexicon. Cast as Alice Cullen, a supporting vampire in the series that has that gift of psychic abilities, her screen time was relatively small but she lit up the screen when she appeared. Totally exquisite, she seems like the absolute epitome of the classic girl-next-door trope and if pressed, we’d prefer to move in beside her than Ariel by a small margin.
13 Elisha Cuthbert
We just have to ask. How is it possible that a woman as divine as Elisha Cuthbert isn’t a very big part of discussions of the hottest women alive today? Seen in the show 24 and movies like Old School, House of Wax, and The Girl Next Door, one thing seems to always be true, she looks incredible and is someone we definitely love to watch every single day. On top of that, she played one of the lead characters in Happy Endings, a show with an immense and deserved cult following. Best described as statuesque, she could have easily found work as a model at the highest level. And although we love seeing her act, we can’t imagine anyone turning down the opportunity to see her scantily clad.
12 Chloe Bennet
An actress on the rise, Chloe Bennet hasn’t had too many notable roles just yet. Still, she plays one of the most entertaining parts of the show Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a show that is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which instantly makes it a big deal. Cast as Daisy “Skye” Johnson, otherwise known as Quake, her character has gained new abilities and skills as the show goes on which makes her fascinating to watch. Born to look totally bewitching onscreen, she seems infinitely likable in real life judging by her social media accounts, and that combination makes her a knockout and just barely puts her above Ariel Winter to us.
11 Lizzy Caplan
One of the few actresses that seem to be able to effortlessly jump between movies and television, Lizzy Caplan has embodied characters we absolutely love. In between her role in shows like Freaks and Geeks, Party Down, and The Class, as well as movies like Cloverfield, Mean Girls, and Hot Tub Time Machine, she almost seems incapable of sucking at a role. Also one of the few people that look like they are among the most beautiful people on the planet as well as being truly funny, she has won over our hearts time and time again. As much as we’ve enjoyed seeing Ariel Winter due to her looks and skills, anyone who has seen Lizzy topless is likely to give her the edge too.
10 Abigail Breslin
An actress that seems to be in a very similar position in her life and career as Ariel Winter, Abigail Breslin also started out her career as a child star and has now blossomed into a beautiful woman. Nominated for an Academy Award for her work in her breakthrough film, Little Miss Sunshine, she would go on to appear in movies like My Sister’s Keeper, Zombieland, and Rango to name a few. Most recently seen as one of the stars of the horror comedy series Scream Queens, since the creator of the show, Ryan Murphy, works with the same people a lot, we hope we get to see more of her soon. A buxom blonde that also carries herself with a lot of confidence on the red carpet but plays a meek person onscreen, with looks like that, Abigail can stack up with the best of them, including Ariel.
9 Leighton Meester
When the show Gossip Girl hit the airwaves, it relied heavily on the s*x appeal of its cast, even going so far as to produce ads that specifically showed their cast in s*xual situations. Thumbing their nose at parents who were outraged that contents that mature were made available to the masses on network TV, it is fortunate that they could rely on Leighton Meester and Blake Lively to bring the heat. While Blake would arguably be the bigger star of the two in the years since, viewers of the series would know that it was actually Leighton who they turned to most to fulfill that role. An actress with a body that practically seems designed to be seen in lingerie, if we ever got to see that in real life, our minds might actually melt.
8 Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is an actress that seems to be good at everything we’ve seen her do. Marvelous in movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Sky High, and 10 Cloverfield Lane, she has also been cast in a powerful role in the series Fargo that has been very well received by many. In fact, we will say this: We really haven’t yet seen a role that she seemed incapable of doing despite the fact that some of her projects have been less than well-received in spite of her skills. A beauty of the caliber that people would have inspired songs or pieces of art in years past, these days, she is the one creating them and all we can do is sit in awe of her work and looks at every turn.
7 Alison Brie
When Alison Brie was cast as Annie, one of the lead characters in the ensemble series Community, it was the role of a lifetime for her. A cult show for the ages, the comedy series played on sci-fi and nerd tropes that were well-established as well as creating well-defined and beloved characters. Those two important aspects are why fans of the series are rabid in their appreciation. She is also seen in movies like Scream 4, The Five-Year Engagement, Sleeping with Other People, and Get Hard. On top of these films, Netflix has tapped her to play the lead in an upcoming series named GLOW. Blessed with a large chest, a delicate and charming face, and an ability to seem approachable despite being the hottest in virtually any room she enters, she has one up on Ariel Winter there.
6 Jessica Lucas
Lately, Jessica Lucas has been quietly amassing a resume for herself that many actors many years her senior would be very jealous of, but has yet to get a role that has made her a star. Seen in movies like The Covenant, Cloverfield, and Evil Dead, she has played a supporting role in the show Gotham for multiple seasons now. Portraying someone you don’t want to mess with, in the series that is a prequel to Batman stories we’ve come to know and love, her character brings to mind Catwoman to a large degree. A sexy woman who uses a whip as a weapon, she is also oftentimes seen in leather and it fits her body to perfection.
5 Gemma Arterton
When Gemma Arterton made her film debut in the movie St Trinian’s, it seems as though the people behind the Bond Franchise took notice of her, which led to her appearing in Quantum of Solace. Given the prestige of being a “Bond Girl,” she turned it into a star-making role for herself and went on to appear in several major productions including Clash of the Titans and the Prince of Persia film. A woman that seems to ooze s*x from her very pore, her presence alone seems to give off a sultry energy that nobody can deny. Add in the fact that she looks utterly ethereal in whatever clothing she’s wearing, she could definitely be the total package. In fact, in a lot of cases, it seems like losing out to Gemma Arterton on a beauty scale could be a compliment because it means you were in the discussion alongside her at one point.
4 Addison Timlin
Probably the least famous person included on this list, Addison Timlin has yet to have a role that has made her a massive star. Still, when she plays a part in a movie or on TV, it seems nearly impossible to ignore her since she is one of the most alluring actresses out there. If you question that at all, then we challenge you to see her work on the show Californication where she took part in several nude scenes. Cast as a character that is supremely confident in her body and has no qualms about showing off her naked body, it seems as though truth is closer to fiction here and we couldn’t be happier about that.
3 Nathalie Emmanuel
Added to the massive cast of Game of Thrones seemingly out of nowhere, from the moment we saw this English Actress on our screens, we immediately sat up and took notice. Playing a background character of sorts, the translator and adviser of Daenerys Targaryen, we were a little bit surprised that they cast such an attractive woman to play a supporting role. Thankfully, over time, her role has expanded and we’ve gotten to see her as part of the Fast & Furious franchise where she has sported a bikini and looked dazzling. She’s definitely someone we’re betting will only become a bigger star over time due to her onscreen presence and looks. Ariel Winter is an attractive girl. But for us, she can’t compete with Nathalie Emmanuel.
2 Eva Amurri Martino
One of the sexiest old school actresses around, Susan Sarandon had the ability to seduce an audience on film like very few ever have. When it comes to her daughter, Eva Amurri Martino, it is abundantly clear that the acorn didn’t fall too far from the tree. Previously seen in movies like Saved! and The Education of Charlie Banks, her young career hadn’t taken off yet when she was cast to play a recurring role on the show Californication. Portraying a stripper who is also a student of the show’s main character, with one striptease, she seduced her professor and millions of viewers around the world due to her body. Gorgeous enough that she easily could have been a model on top of her bountiful chest, Eva simply put has it going on.
1 Alexandra Daddario
An actress that seemed to come out of nowhere with a stunning performance on the show True Detective, she proved that she was a stellar actress. However, it was her mind-blowing body that was the star. Actually a star of previous films like the Percy Jackson series, San Andreas, and more, all of that went right out the window and the world got to see what Alexandra Daddario looked like in the nude. With millions of people smitten with her overnight, she has since capitalized on her looks and is set to appear in four films in 2017 alone. Blessed with one of the best chests we’ve ever seen on film, a body without an extra pound on it and a welcoming smile, we’re not sure that too many women exist that are better-looking than this beauty.
