There is one thing that we all know about the entertainment industry just by looking at those that make it to the top of it—the looks of potential stars are of huge importance. Don’t get us wrong. We’re not saying they should be in all cases since we really don’t see the connection between singing a song and looks, for instance, but we also recognize that it is a fact of modern life. As a result, for those that are looking to make a big impact on pop culture, their looks are of huge importance. There are some stars out there that are routinely celebrated for their looks but there are many others that we think should be but don’t seem to get their due. Realizing that is what inspired us to put together this list of twenty-one famous women whose looks are far too underrated.
In order for someone to be considered for inclusion on this list, a woman first needs to have made a name for herself in one way or another. For the purposes of this list, it doesn’t matter to us what they did to become a star, which means that actors, athletes, TV hosts, YouTube personalities, or any other kind of career person could end up here. Next, they need to be very attractive women that we feel oftentimes don’t get the credit they deserve for their looks. We want to make it clear that beauty is in the eye of the beholder so you may not feel the same way that we do. On top of that, most of us run in our own groups these days, so you may see them getting credit. But, we feel that the wide audience doesn’t.
21 Rebecca Hall
An actress that you have likely seen pop up in a number of notable films, Rebecca Hall’s name isn’t overly well-known but her face absolutely is; and for good reason. A part of films like The Prestige, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Town, Iron Man 3, and The BFG among others, when she appears on our screen, we know that we are likely to be in for something good. We say that in part because of her looks but also because of her many acting award nominations, such as Empire Awards, Golden Globes, a BAFTA, and too many more to list here. A beautiful brunette with a body to die for and seemingly perfect features, as good as she looks in almost every picture of her, we’re astonished that she isn’t lusted after much more.
20 Jamie Chung
An American actress that has taken a unique road to stardom, Jamie Chung first came to prominence as a part of the “reality” show The Real World: San Diego as well as Road Rules Challenge: The Inferno II. Able to parlay that TV time into acting roles in shows like Days of Our Lives, Once Upon a Time, Resident Advisors, and Gotham, it is clear that she has been treated well by that medium. Also a part of several movies, you may have seen her efforts in films like Dragonball Evolution, Grown Ups, Premium Rush, Sorority Row, The Hangover Part II, Sucker Punch, and Big Hero 6. Blessed with a seemingly flawless figure and face, any opportunity we have to check her out, you’d better put money on us taking.
19 Hayley Atwell
A British actress that exudes class from her every pore, Hayley Atwell has been marvelous in a number of roles because of her ability to bring a great deal of inner strength to the screen as well. Best known for being cast as the character Peggy Carter in the Captain America movies, at first, it seemed like it may be a one-time gig for her but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Seen in several projects that are related to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she was even the star of her own spin-off series, Agent Carter, for two seasons. An absolutely exquisite woman with curves for days, we are always blown away by the innate beauty of her face but are even more amazed by the incredible size of her chest.
18 Julia Ling
Someone who kicked around the acting scene for a number of years, Julia Ling hasn’t become a gigantic star as of yet but she has garnered a pretty big following in her own right. Best known for her part in the show Chuck, which is a cult classic series with a devoted fan following, many were disappointed when her character, Anna Wu, stopped appearing in the series. Also a part of several other television productions, including ER and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, among others, we are always very pleased when she appears on our screen. A gorgeous woman with fantastic looks and a mischievous smile, we’re just disappointed that it has been a while since she took on a notable role and hope that she reappears soon.
17 Becky G
A multifaceted performer with a history of acting and singing success, it seems like Becky G is good at everything she puts her mind to, based on her impressive history. Known in part for releasing songs like “Becky from the Block,” “The Monster Remix,” and several more, her music has garnered a number of nominations in the past including Teen Choice and Billboard Latin awards. Also gaining more momentum as an actress in the last several years, she has popped up on television and in movies but gained the most momentum when she was cast as Trini in the film adaptation of Power Rangers. Someone who stands at only five foot one, Becky packs a lot that we love to see into her small frame.
16 Madeline Zima
When Madeline Zima first rose to prominence as a child actor that was cast in one of the lead roles in The Nanny, there was no way to know that she would have true staying power as a performer. Since able to take on a number of notable roles, she was a part of other series like Californication, Heroes, and Twin Peaks as an adult. Clearly not content to limit herself to that medium, however, her skills were also seen in movies including The Collector, Breaking the Girls, and Crazy Eyes. A striking beauty with a body and face to die for, because of the fact that Madeline hasn’t been shy to show herself off on film in the past, we know that we could never see too much of her.
15 Anna Kendrick
Someone who is better known for her winning personality, fantastic voice, and acting skills, Anna Kendrick’s good looks aren’t focused on nearly enough but usually for good reasons. Already an Oscar-nominated actress, she has done her thing as a part of movies like the Twilight and Pitch Perfect franchises, Into the Woods, Trolls, and The Accountant, to name only a sampling. Also an established indie darling in her own right, she has also garnered acclaim for her part in films like Up in the Air, Table 19, The Hollars, Drinking Buddies, and many more. Not content at even all of that, she has released at least one hit song in the form of “Cups.” A radiant redhead, Anna doesn’t pose for many racy images but that shouldn’t obscure how impressive her body and face are to look at.
14 Danielle Harris
Over the years, there have been a number of actors that are first and foremost associated with the horror genre in the minds of fans. Highlighted by names like Boris Karloff, Robert Englund, Linda Blair, Tony Todd, Kane Hodder, Heather Langenkamp, and more, Danielle Harris also belongs on that list but stands out as the hottest among them. A major part of franchises like Halloween and Hatchet as well as stand-alone movies like Urban Legends, See No Evil 2, and more, her horror credentials are extremely solid. A beautiful brunette with a hugely notable leg tattoo, a face that perfectly fits the gothic motif, and a body that is just begging to be seen, she is always a vision when she is a part of a movie or photo shoot.
13 Parminder Nagra
A British actress that has been a sensation in several countries around the world, Parminder Nagra was made a star when she starred in the movie Bend It Like Beckham which was a huge hit. Subsequently landing a role in an American show that is remembered as one of the best medical shows of all time, ER, she brought Dr. Neela Rasgotra to life for an impressive six seasons. Most recently gaining attention for her work in other shows like The Blacklist and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we’re not sure what major role she’ll land next but we’re always excited for it. A small but impactful woman who always brings a lot of heart to her appearances, we find that energy very attractive as well as her tight body.
12 India De Beaufort
An actress that is bound to surprise you in a number of films and television shows, India de Beaufort hasn’t become a big-enough deal to be listed first in many projects yet but we hope that changes soon. First turning heads with her role in the underrated comedy Run Fatboy Run, she played a seemingly throwaway character. However, based on her looks and charisma, she made it a big deal. Since given a lot of TV gigs that many of her peers would love to have landed, she has been a part of shows like One Tree Hill, Jane by Design, All Hail King Julien, and Younger. Someone with a presence and grace that are very eye-grabbing, we love it when she wears revealing outfits. But, even when she is fully dressed, her beauty still can’t be forgotten.
11 Peyton Royce
For those of you who are not devoted wrestling fans, let us introduce you to the incredible Peyton Royce. An employee of the WWE, you’d think that she would have made a bigger mark on the world since she is a part of the biggest company in that industry. But as of yet, she hasn’t made it to the main roster. A staple of their developmental brand NXT, she comes out to the ring with her partner in crime, Billie Kay, who also is a very hot woman. Still, despite the fact that she shares the spotlight with another gorgeous gal, we still find ourselves focused largely on her. That is the case because she is just that hot and has a body that doesn’t seem to have an extra pound on it but still has curves in all the right places as well as a glamorous face.
10 Erika Christensen
Every once in a while, you come across an actor in a role that they are so good in that it just about takes your breath away. A great example of that is the part that Erika Christensen in the film Traffic, in which she played a drug addict so convincingly that we almost bought that she had that problem in real life. Unfortunately, she has yet to be able to recreate that magic but she has been able to give several incredible performances in movies and on television. For instance, she was great in flicks like Swimfan and The Perfect Score, as well as the series Parenthood. A beautiful blonde with a bountiful bosom and a bewitching face and body, we really can’t see anything about her that we don’t like.
9 Briana Evigan
The second scream queen to appear on this list, Briana Evigan hasn’t quite risen to the caliber of Danielle Harris but she has an impressive history in that genre nevertheless. In fact, she has played a pivotal part in movies like Sorority Row, Mother's Day, The Devil's Carnival, and its sequel, Stash House. She was also a part of the second season of the show From Dusk Till Dawn. If that weren’t enough, she is also a talented dancer which is why she is a part of the Step Up series of films, including the second movie in the series where she took the reins from Channing Tatum. Clearly someone who works very hard on her body, like most people who can shake their stuff, her figure is so stunning that it could aptly be called a piece of art.
8 Zoey Deutch
Somebody who seems to have been born to be a huge star, Zoey Deutch isn’t quite there yet but she is on her way, and we can’t wait to see her meet her final destination. The daughter of famed actress Lea Thompson, who is best known for playing the mother of Marty McFly in the Back to the Future franchise of films, she was fortunate to inherit much of her mom’s genetic makeup. A part of several flicks that have caught on already, she can be seen in films like Vampire Academy, Everybody Wants Some!!, and is set to show up in the anticipated movie The Disaster Artist. A splendid-looking young woman who is only twenty-two at the time of this writing, if she continues to grow into herself, then we can only imagine that she’ll top lists of the hottest women in the world soon.
7 Hailee Steinfeld
From one actress in her early twenties to another, this time around, we are looking at the twenty-year-old singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld. Some may be surprised to read that she has made an impact as a singer since it is her other career that has garnered more attention but she has been a part of music that charted on the Billboard Hot 100. Even more accomplished as an actress, however, she already has received an Oscar nomination for the film True Grit and many felt she deserved another for her work in The Edge of Seventeen. A full-bodied person who seems to be very confident in herself in real life, we can’t blame her in the slightest since we think that her looks are underrated by far too many people.
6 Martine McCutcheon
If there is one way to ensure that you’ve made an impact on the film industry, it is playing a pivotal role in a film that the masses come to see as a holiday classic. Fortunately, for the legacy of Martine McCutcheon, she has done just that because of her supporting role in the movie Love Actually that is an annual must-watch in many homes around the world. Cast as Natalie in it, an assistant to the Prime Minister of England, the audience gets to see real feelings develop between the pair and swoon when they finally embrace. Always a gorgeous woman in our view, we were surprised that some didn’t seem to see her that way but we’re hoping that a shot of her like this one will help change those minds.
5 Hannah Murray
A cast member of a show that many see as the best on television, each time Hannah Murray appears as her character, Gilly, from Game of Thrones, millions of people are watching. One of the most lovable figures on the show, the relationship that has been built between her character and Samwell Tarly is one of the most heartwarming aspects of a show that can be quite brutal. Almost always shown looking like she is sorely in need of a shower and with layer upon layer of clothes on, it is obvious that her look is designed to make her look as plain as possible. As a result of that, there are many people who don’t realize that she is a very appealing person to look at when we see her in other roles or on the red carpet.
4 Molly Ephraim
An accomplished actress that has done her thing in a number of mediums, Molly Ephraim is one of the few people on this list that has a long history in the theater, including working on and off Broadway. Best known, however, for a single television role, she had one of the lead roles in the recently-canceled show Last Man Standing. Playing the daughter of characters embodied by Tim Allen and Nancy Travis in the series, she was depended upon to react to her onscreen father’s antics and look as good as her TV mother in her youth. Adept at both, she garnered laughs of her own from the show’s audience but also made many of them fall for her because of her fantastic body and face.
3 Diane Guerrero
Someone who rose to true prominence as part of a show that is the definition of an ensemble piece, Diane Guerrero was cast as Maritza Ramos in the series Orange is the New Black. Competing for screen time with a long list of talented and good-looking actresses, this charismatic young performer was able to stand out even though she has yet to bare her flesh as many others have. Also a major part of the show Jane the Virgin over the last several years, that show has featured her in form-fitting outfits which have allowed its audience to appreciate just how incredible her figure actually is. Far more busty than many may realize and possessing a stellar body overall, that, in addition to her pretty face, makes her someone whose looks drive us wild.
2 Stana Katic
An actress that has appeared in an extensive list of shows and movies, Stana Katic’s name appeared in the credits of Quantum of Solace and shows like Alias, 24, and Heroes in tiny roles. You may wonder why we think she is famous then, but if that is the case, then you must not be among that incredibly devoted fan base that supports the show Castle. Cast as a homicide detective in that series, she shares the screen with the much-beloved actor, Nathan Fillion, constantly and the chemistry between the pair is often palpable. Possessing a somewhat unique but exquisite-looking face, we think that her figure and charisma are great enough to make many fall for her if only they too were aware of this recently-ended series.
1 Missy Peregrym
A Canadian woman that has a history of modeling but is now focused on a career in the acting world, Missy Peregrym’s main claim to fame is as part of the show Rookie Blue. Given a Canadian Screen Award for her role in the series, there is no doubt that she deserves to be proud of that accolade even though many reading this likely have no idea that such a ceremony even exists. Also seen in series like Dark Angel, Smallville, Heroes, Reaper, and Hawaii Five-0 in small roles, we sincerely hope that she is allowed to anchor another show any day now since she is great in many ways. Of course, she is on this list so we think that she is a rare beauty that doesn’t receive the credit that she deserves, and we’re sure you feel the same way about her when looking at this picture.
