Amazing [Young] Actresses

Sort by: Showing 30 items
Average listal rating (633 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
1. Jennifer Lawrence

Ever since I saw in her X-Men First Class, I knew she was my new favorite actress. She's not over the top, but she's not too underwhelmed. I have a feeling she's going to be a very big star. [Without the help of the Hunger Games movies]

Best Movie: X-Men First Class

Average listal rating (577 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
2. Elisha Cuthbert

Previously my favorite actress & still in my top, I love that she doesn't use her sexuality in everything she does. She can play the Playboy type but also be goofy & complete uninhibited with herself.

Best Movie: The Girl Next Door

Average listal rating (1267 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
3. Emma Watson

The Harry Potter movies may have shaped her into the amazing powerhouse of an actress that she is now, but she has so much more growing ahead of her that I can't wait to experience through her movies.

Best Movie: Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Average listal rating (1051 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
4. Christina Ricci

Ever since I was young, I've enjoyed watching her. The movies she did in her teens were so mesmerizing that it made me want more. Now she's doing the same, just in a more grown up way. She can go from dark & twisted films like Sleepy Hallow & Black Snake Moan, to Bucky Larson without the bat of an eyelash. She's versatile & it appears effortless for her.

Best Movie: Sleepy Hallow

Average listal rating (461 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
5. Kat Dennings

There's something about her that I can just relate to. She's not full of herself from working with some of the greatest actors out there. When she's on screen, you can see a real person playing a character that may have turned out cocky or annoying had someone else tried their luck at it.

Best Movie: Charlie Bartlett

Average listal rating (298 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
6. Juno Temple

Even though she's still a new-be, she already caught my attention in a few films. She is sassy & sometimes a little quirky & I find it intriguing.

Best Movie: Dirty Girl

Average listal rating (67 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
7. Elizabeth Gillies

Despite being a "Nickelodeon" star, she has major potential to be one of the best. She needs to get rid of the bitchy characters & try out for something personal & real.

Best Movie: N/A

Average listal rating (1023 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
8. Mila Kunis

Having been around for so long, she knows her good & bad qualities when on screen, she can make you feel what the character feels & immediately pulls you over to her side with just her facial expressions.

Best Movie: Friends With Benefits

Average listal rating (340 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
9. Teresa Palmer

Another sort of new-be, she is one of the most pleasant to watch. She doesn't make you hate her character by trying too hard to make it relate-able. She can make you sit & listen when her characters have a moment of realism.

Best Movie: I Am Number 4

Average listal rating (253 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
10. Anna Popplewell

The Narnia films were one of the many reasons I began enjoying her work, she's gorgeous but she's also proper & not too smug with herself. As her characters evolve, so does she.

Best Movie: The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Average listal rating (452 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
11. Emily Browning

I see a very bright future for her, in many different film genres, that will lead her down a very sought-after path.

Best Movie: SuckerPunch

Average listal rating (678 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
12. Evan Rachel Wood

Her ability to portray such diverse characters makes her extremely easy to watch. She's been around for a while, & even in small roles, she demands the attention without even speaking.

Best Movie: Across The Universe

Average listal rating (499 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
13. Bryce Dallas Howard

I first saw her in The Village & thought she was just another face that I'd be forced to see constantly, but she stayed somewhat under the radar, despite her background & she continued to do more un-incorporated movies. To this day, when I see her in movies, I go in wondering what unique choices she's made for the characters & the films.

Best Movie: Lady In The Water

Average listal rating (405 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
14. Saoirse Ronan

Her accent is what caught my attention the first time I saw her. The Lovely Bones may have paved the way for her, but I have a feeling she won't need any help as her career moves forward.

Best Movie: Hannah

Average listal rating (513 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
15. Chloe Moretz

For such a young person, she's got the experience & the drive to do whatever she feels like in Hollywood. She could play whatever role was handed to her & she would make it amazing.

Best Movie: Kick-Ass

Average listal rating (87 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
16. Zoe Kravitz

Being somewhat of a legacy, you'd think she would use that to her advantage, but no. She uses her skills & personality to charm you into watching her & wanting to see more.

Best Movie: It's Kind Of A Funny Story

Average listal rating (1099 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
17. Kristen Stewart

Some may disagree, but I see major improvement in her since she started acting. From her early films where she was always the young daughter & things weren't as hectic, to now where she is arguably one of the most sought-after women in Hollywood, she's changing as her film choices demand. I have a feeling she'll only get better.

Best Movie: The Runaways

Average listal rating (141 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
18. Meagan Good

As a beautiful young actress, she could let herself be someone that people don't necessarily find themselves going out of their way to watch, but they do. She's incredibly grounded in her acting & doesn't let things like slip-ups pull her down.

Best Movie: Roll Bounce

Average listal rating (425 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
19. Amanda Bynes

As sort of a "child actor" she could have fallen down a path of no return, but she persisted & found herself getting some of the best roles [for a young adult] of her time. Now-a-days she's not doing much, but her hay-day is coming again soon.

Best Movie: She's The Man

Average listal rating (412 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
20. Kaya Scodelario

I'm not personally a fan of SKINS, but her character is what got me to watch the few episodes that I managed to. She was so raw & real, that I just wanted to sit & listen to her state her opinions just to hear her speak out of her talented little mouth.

Best Movie: N/A

Average listal rating (327 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
21. Elle Fanning

Being the younger [& more talented] sister of someone who is so fawned after is never easy for anyone, but she does it in her own way, dealing with it by doing such a good job in her films, it makes me think "Dakota who?"

Best Movie: Super 8

Average listal rating (727 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
22. Hayden Panettiere

From a young age, she chose the goody-goody roles & I couldn't really understand the fuss over her, until I saw her in Heroes. The passion she brings to her characters is so deep & emotional, it makes it hard to hate.

Best Movie: Scream 4

Average listal rating (447 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
23. Emilie de Ravin

She may not be very high on the list, but she's a very interesting actress to keep an eye on.

Best Movie: Remember Me

Average listal rating (380 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
24. Dianna Agron

Glee aside, she has the ability to transform. Movies that don't just have her as the beautiful love interest are the ones that she's going to shine in the most.

Best Movie: I Am Number 4

Average listal rating (411 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
25. Gemma Arterton

British actresses are usually some of the best, & she's no exception. She's pure & likable in a way that is almost unreal. She can be innocent but have a side that no one expects.

Best Movie: Pirate Radio/The Boat That Rocked

Average listal rating (1086 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating
26. Megan Fox

Another one people may disagree with, but she can be perfectly amazing when she tries. If she'd put aside the fact that men fawn over her, then she'd do a much better job.

Best Movie: Transformers

Average listal rating (83 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
27. Leven Rambin

Though she's not very popular, she is a very good character actress.

Best Movie: Gigantic

Average listal rating (895 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
28. Emma Stone

Some may say she should be higher on the list, but I don't agree. While she is a great actress, there's something about her characters that is always the same. The girl-next-door who's goofy & weird. While that probably reflects her real personality, it's not always fun to watch.

Best Movie: Easy A

Average listal rating (1153 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
29. Zooey Deschanel

A stunning beauty, she could work on herself a little more to be less doe-eyed & more sincere with her work. I love her to pieces, but she's another one who always acts the same.

Best Movie: Our Idiot Brother

Average listal rating (577 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
30. Alexis Bledel

My personal favorite from the Sisterhood films, she can't always emote what she's trying to make people feel. Her facial expressions leave much to be desired. She's beautiful & her eyes are gorgeous but she can't live off of the partially-serious, partially-naive routine forever.

Best Movie: Tuck Everlasting


Just the ones I think are a little better than the rest. :)
[I will be adding to this]
These are in order, but it doesn't mean I like any of them any less.
