America has produced some of the most beautiful and talented actresses the world has ever seen. American actresses have been making their mark in show business even before the advent of cinema. Women like Ethel Barrymore, an eminent stage actress in her era, was a much respected professional regarded as the "First Lady of the American Theater". Fay Okell Bainter was another such actress who began her career on the stage and ventured into films as well. The rapid development of Hollywood in the early 20th century set the pace for the emergence of actresses like Blanche Sweet, Lillian Gish, and Mary Pickford who were not only good-looking but also possessed the tremendous talent needed to thrive in a highly competitive industry. The mid 20th century was dominated by the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, and Marilyn Monroe who rose to fame as one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s. With Hollywood movies exploring off-beat themes during the late 20th century, actresses like Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts have dropped their glamorous avatars to take up more realistic roles. This section provides you information about the life and works of famous American actresses.
