The 15 Most Beautiful Blonde Actresses

Well I Keep On Thinkin' 'Bout You Sister Golden Hair Surprise...

As promised I am now providing my list of the most beautiful blond actresses. As expected, I was unable to limit myself to ten. And after completing the list and taking several days to work on it, I have come to realize that my choices are not even written in stone. Ask me next week, and I might choose a different 15 blond beauties, though certainly some choices are locked in -- Elizabeth Montgomery, Sarah Carter, Reese Witherspoon; most likely Ali Larter and Cheryl Ladd, probably Heather Graham and Kate Hudson...

But as the days passed after making the list, I found myself asking shouldn't someone be bumped to make room for Kristen Bell, Maggie Grace or maybe Hayden Panettiere? What about Cheryl Ladd's gorgeous daughter Jordan or Kate Hudson's MILF-alicious mom, Goldie Hawn? As I am sure you can understand, the urge to change my original list was strong, but I resisted and stuck to the fifteen beautiful ladies I originally chose.

So now, if you will, take a few minutes and indulge in the golden radiance of these blond goddesses...

Elizabeth Montgomery


Where does one start with the amazing Elizabeth Montgomery? America's favorite witchy woman, Elizabeth was the perfect MILF before we even knew what a MILF was. That tinkle-tinkle-tink nose trick was just so cute, how could any red-blooded American male not fall under her sexy spell? Her role as Bewitched's Samantha Stevens was undoubtedly her best known role, but that was only a small part of her career which spanned from her start in the early 1950's until her death in 1995. And now, almost 15 years after her passing, Elizabeth's magic is as strong as ever!

Ali Larter


Ali Larter is probably best known for appearances in the hit TV series Heroes, but Ali's big screen roles have been impressive as well. I first noticed Ali as Clear Rivers in the first Final Destination film and I anxiously awaited the sequel primarily because I knew she would be back. Obviously I was not alone. By the time Ali began her stint on Heroes, she was already well known both for her beauty and her acting skills. Ali is sure to have a great career as she continues to become more popular with each project she pursues.

Sarah Carter


Lovely Sarah Carter may not be as well known as some of the other beauties on this list, but her radiance certainly glows as bright as any. A gorgeous face, a glowing smile and a hot body -- both physically and sexually speaking -- combine to give this girl all the right ingredients for a variety of film genres. She can kick ass when needed yet could just as easily be the helpless damsel in distress. She can scream with the best in any frightener you might find or yuck it up in the latest sorority girl farce. She can play the hero's kid sister or the villain's seductive mistress. In short, the girl can do it all!

Reese Witherspoon


Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon was born on March 22, 1976 in New Orleans, LA and the world was blessed with a natural born Southern belle. Reese began her film career at 14 in The Man in the Moon for which she received much critical acclaim. She acted steadily from then on but really broke through with her role as Elle Woods in Legally Blond (which also coincidentally featured the delicious Ali Larter (see above). As beautiful as she is graceful, Reese can still play just about any role that is called for. Naughty boys (and probably naughty girls as well) will want to check out Reese's performance in Twilight -- not the vampire blockbuster but the 1998 Paul Newman film -- for an intimate peek at her flawless body!

Farrah Fawcett


The late Farrah Fawcett became a household name starring as Jill Munroe in the late 70's TV show Charlie Angels. Her posters -- especially the leggy pose in that famous red swimsuit -- graced the walls of hundreds of thousands of adolescent boys and probably quite a few older fellows, too. In her later years Farrah proved not only to be a great actress but a great woman as well, facing her death with honor, vigor and dignity. Farrah will truly be missed and surely never forgotten.

Paris Hilton

Okay... okay... I hear you out there... "But Paris isn't an actress." "But Paris is so fake." Wah wah wah... Oh shut up! You know you want her. Face it -- she's hot! Maybe her acting isn't the best, but she's still hot ! And though some will deny it, she has done some decent movies. The Hottie and the Nottie is definitely underrated and House of Wax was above average. Will she win any Oscars anytime soon? Obviously not. But a night in Paris would still be heavenly.

Kate Hudson


The daughter of Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, Kate Hudson was destined to be a star. And what a lovely star she is, shining brightly with a celestial beauty that is rarely matched. Her golden locks, reminiscent of her mother, surround her angelic face as if the rays of the Sun were cascading around her. And Kate can act! Like her mom, she shines best in comedic roles, but can hold her own in a drama or a thriller as well. Beauty and talent combine to make Kate Hudson an actress to watch in the coming years!

Morgan Fairchild began her acting career in the late 1970s guest starring on television series such as "Kojak," "Happy Days," "Police Woman," "Dallas" and "The Bob Newhart Show." I first saw her as Lisa Benson on an episode of "The Amazing Spider-man" when I was 14 years old and immediately had my new fantasy woman. Perhaps the most amazing thing about Morgan is how incredibly beautiful she has remained over the years. When I saw her in 2006 in The Initiation of Sarah, it was hard to believe she was 56 years old!

Morgan Fairchild


Renee O'Connor


As Gabrielle, Renee O'Connor was the best part of "Xena: Warrior Princess" for many fans, myself included. Oh sure, maybe Lucy Lawless was the star of the show, but it Renee who added the bubbly sparkle that made their relationship dynamic and interesting enough to bring us back week after week. Though she is best known as Gabrielle, Renee has also had a solid film career and continues to be a favorite especially in so-called "genre films" such as Alien Apocalypse and Boogeyman 2.

Cheryl Ladd


Cheryl Ladd is probably best known for her three TV series beginning with "Charlie's Angels," followed by "One West Waikiki" and then most recently "Las Vegas". She also guest starred on many other shows and made numerous movies, mostly made for TV. I never really understood why she did not break out as a bigger star though I think it had more to do with her choices in films than in her acting ability. She just never got the big screen breaks that she should have. But at least she has and likely will continue to light up the small screen with her beauty.

Patricia Arquette


Lisa Hartman (also known as Lisa Hartman Black since her marriage to country music star Clint Black) first gained attention in the sadly short-lived "Bewitched" spin-off series "Tabitha" which featured her as the grown up daughter of Samantha and Durwood... er, I mean Darren... Stevens. Lisa went on to star in several movies and guest star on many TV shows until finally landing a recurring role on "Knot's Landing." After that series ended, Lisa again starred in many films and guest starred on several shows before basically disappearing from the screen at the end of the 1990s. Since then it has been much more likely that you would catch a glimpse of lovely Lisa when out with her husband than on a TV or movie screen.

Patricia Arquette made her film debut in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and went on to star in movies such as True Romance, Stigmata and Bringing Out the Dead. But these days, she is probably best known for her starring role on the hit television series "Medium." Patricia is the younger sister of another well known beautiful actress, Rosanna Arquette. Though born in Chicago, Patricia moved to Virginia at a young age leaving her with an oh-so-sexy Southern tinge to her voice.

Lisa Hartman Black


Tara Reid


Tara Reid has a reputation as a bit of a bad girl. But that is a very good thing. At least for all the guys out there that appreciate this incredibly beautiful girl. Her film career has been sporadic at best with the highlights being the American Pie films and Van Wilder. But the lack of blockbuster films in no way detracts from the gorgeousness of this woman who could hold your attention while vacuuming carpet for an hour. Still, it would be nice to see Tara have a bit more success on the big screen.

Heather Graham


Whether playing a porn star, a business owner, a drugged out teenager or international spy, Heather Graham makes you think, "yeah, that could be my girl." She brings her girl-next-door quality to everything she does, yet she is always able to make us believe this is a different girl than the last girl. Though all of Heather's part are lovely, by far it is her big baby blue eyes that will pull you in. Her gorgeous smile will likely keep you there. Enchanting. That's the word that best describes Heather Graham.

Patsy Kensit


From the first time I saw Patsy Kensit in Lethal Weapon 2, I was completely smitten. I mean this girl was so gorgeous that she got me to sit through utter crap like Absolute Beginners and Bitter Harvest. And she has only improved with age. She has gone from being adorable to alluring to sultry. She is the kind of girl who, while it would be pe4rfectly acceptable to take home to mother, you would likely not get around to it as you would be otherwise delightfully occupied!

The Fairest One of All Poll II


Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 12, 2019:

A 50's / 60's Hollywood starlet Mamie Van Doren famous for a voluptuous figure and well endowed with an ample bust line. She featured in a variety of productions albeit not the leading Lady.

Helen Stuart from Deep in the Heart of Texas on July 30, 2017:

I had to vote for Heather Grahm, not just because she is adorable, (her face is symmetrical unlike some of your other picks, which gives them a lot of character) but I have seen her in several comedies and I HAVE to respect a good comedic actress

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on December 04, 2015:

The glamorous English actress Honor Blackman formally a brunette is now in her more elderly years, has a wonderfully coiffured hair colouring relating to blonde.

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on August 08, 2014:

Let divide the topic in types of blonde for example 'platinum blonde' or 'honey blonde' and even 'tinted blonde'!

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on June 30, 2014:

On this morning's news channel a looking great at 68 Dolly Parton has comleted an English tour. She quotes 'They called me a 'dumb blonde'

but i'm niether dumb or blonde!'

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on June 24, 2014:

A French actress named Mylene-Helene Demongeot had a successful career spanning the 1960's onward. The blonde who i would also describe as demure was mainly in Continental films but in one particular Hollywood feature as a thirty something at the time she portrayed the daughter to a mother portrayed by Gina Lollobrigida who in reality was only 7 years Mylene's senior.

JOC from Syracuse, NY on May 20, 2014:

Yeah, not to have Kim Basinger on the first list is a crime.

Ian Stuart Robertson from London England on April 15, 2014:

Marilyn Monroe Jayne Mansfield Mammie van Doran Tuesday Weld Anne Francis Brigette Bardot Anita Ekberg Elke Sommer Ursula Andress Joanna Lumley Angie Dickenson Liv Ulman Susannah Yorke Connie Stevens and BLONDIE

SpiderBytes (author) from Wild Wild West on February 07, 2012:

I saw Morgan playing herself in Slammin' Salmon recently and she was as beautiful and delightful as ever. Thanks for reading!

FrankiesFaves on January 04, 2012:

Morgan Fairchild is my all time favorite LADY! Thank you for encluding her SpiderBytes. She is truly a cut above the rest, her combination of Beauty-Sex Appeal-Class-Integrity-Intelligence-etc...earns her the highest place in Blondome...even though she is very approachable and exudes warm loving kindness, I love Morgan Fairchild!

SpiderBytes (author) from Wild Wild West on October 02, 2011:

benakoa, if you truly believe that 95% of these women are ugly, then you should probably reconsider your sexuality because you definitely are not attracted to beautiful women. And exactly how is a list that I describe as "my list" and is clearly therefore meant to be representative of my opinion not "legit" when it expresses exactly that -- my opinion. Nothing says you have to agree with any of my choices, but you disagreeing with them in no way makes my opinion any less valid.

benakoa from Portland, Maine on October 02, 2011:

This is definitely a personal list. They all have similar traits so I take it this is not legit list. This is your personal list.Ha! 95% are f..n ugly.

Paris! Good Lord! Witherspoon? Lord scoop em with a spoon

_thats_a_bingo on July 13, 2011:

Elizabeth Montgomery was absolutely gorgeous....and classy too!

lilangus on March 27, 2011:

The absolute worst choice you could've made here was Paris Hilton! Bad! I wouldn't do her with your weiner! Ali Larter, then Tara Reid...the rest on the list are all mediocre lol.

Joe Dz on November 28, 2010:

No doubt: all great choices. One suggestion: how about posting some sellection on the topic "actresses with the most beatiful and kisseable lips of all times"?

Realist on November 27, 2010:

I meant to write Michelle Pfeiffer. Others I think are much prettier than some on this list include: Charlize Theron, Brigette Bardot, Bo Derek.

Realist on November 27, 2010:

Some pretty qustionable choices here in my opinion...Paris, Renee O'Connor, and Morgan Fairchild? What about real beauties like Michelle Pfeisser, Scarlet Jo, and Marilyn Monroe?

john on November 16, 2010:

Where is Scarlet here? the most beatiful blonde girl in the universe

AutumnLockwood from Northern California on November 14, 2010:

Kate Hudson is the hottest in the list. Thanks for the post! Great hub!

Adam on November 08, 2010:

Kim Basinger, Bo Derek, Charlize Theron should be here, they are real classical beauties. I agree with the choice of Tara Reid, she is incredible.

Candy on November 06, 2010:

Thanks for including Renee O'Connor. She hasn't been in the public eye for a while, but she's just beautiful. And that's what this poll is about, right?

Finton on November 04, 2010:

I gotta disagree with the worst choices ever comment too. My personal views say there are maybe half a dozen other blonde bombshel... actresses that could compete in any "credible" way with those already listed.

Kate Hudson and Heather Graham made my vote sorta difficult but I don't think any, on this list or not, could be more stunning - looking and personality - than Sarah Carter. Here's to another percentage point up in the next few months :)


Travis Bookes on October 28, 2010:

LOL! I come back here every now and again just to see how Sarah Carter is doing in the poll and some of the comments really crack me up! Mngrl if you can come up with better coices than these, post them up and let's see them! Personally I think Spiderbytes did a great job selecting the ladies! Especially Sarah, Patsy Kensit, Reese Witherspoon and Ali Larter!

mngrl on October 27, 2010:

These are the worst choices ever.

rashman on October 05, 2010:

lots of younger folks in this poll

litew8 on September 22, 2010:


This thread rocks, and every time i see paris anywhere, i puke a little

Sarah Carter is Gods gift to mankind -

Grannie annie on September 20, 2010:

What happened to Bo Derek ::::

dffff on August 29, 2010:

for those of you who voted for tara reid, google pictures of her sure your opinion will change.

SpiderBytes (author) from Wild Wild West on August 06, 2010:

Thanks everyone for all the votes and comments. I think it is great that there is such a variety of opinion. It truly illustrates that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.

I knew Paris would be the most controversial choice and of course she has been. But also as obvious is the fact that I am not alone in finding her beautiful.

Miss, it is kind of funny you would say you find most of my choices plain as that is how I feel about both those you mentioned. And I cannot fathom how anyone could see Heather Graham as plain. But then again, it is just further proof that beauty is different when seen through other eyes.

katrina, not sure what exactly you use as a basis for what is "legit" or "credible" when what you are commenting on is simply one man's opinion. I wonder what your criteria for determining legitimacy is...

katrina on July 25, 2010:

I only went through like a quarter of the list before I stopped. Any list that describes PAris Hilton as "beautiful" isn't very legit or credible.

Phillyfreeze69 on May 28, 2010:

Seeing Paris Hilton on your list brought back fond memories of seeing her up close and personal at the Barnstable-Brown Derby Gala 1 year ago. She looked gorgeously sexy and very chic in her Derby outfit.

bamaGirl on May 18, 2010:

Liz Montgomery was unique, talented, and she didn't have to pose nude to get a role. And her role in Johnny Cool doesn't count. She had a sheet covering her. Doris Day, another oldie but goody. These actresses had charm and magic. I dont find that too much anymore. Miss you Liz 1933-1995.

dylan on May 13, 2010:

tara reid is so hot

Travis Bookes on May 11, 2010:

Jealous much Dom? LOL! I would not pick Paris as the most beautiful. I picked Sarah Carter who blows away all these other women. But to call Paris Hilton "butt ass ugly" is ridiculous.

Dom on April 27, 2010:

"But Paris isn't an actress." "But Paris is so fake." Wah wah wah... Oh shut up! You know you want her...

Dude she tops most people's "do not want" list. I would choose a foursome with Roseanne, Rosie O& Oprah before her. Being skinny doesn't make someone hot. She is BUTT ASS UGLY with absolutely no redeemable qualities.

Nazeer on April 14, 2010:

From the two pics of Tara Reid her breast are of different sizes. how can people vote for such pics. Be realistic I voted for Ali Larter. She got a cute face and a nice body

Amit on January 03, 2010:

Of course Heather Locklear must be on the list. Number 1 ....

anlo on October 07, 2009:

I'd like to add Amy Smart to the list!

santhosh on September 18, 2009:

good & rare pix tnks

dohn121 from Hudson Valley, New York on August 28, 2009:

Damn! Great job, SpiderBytes. I enjoyed this throughly. I can bombard you with other candidates, but perhaps that is for a different hub. Cheers!

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on August 28, 2009:

One more--Julie Christie--(And she knows how to act!)
