The Most Beautiful Women in Hollywood

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I'm sharing my list of the most beautiful women in Hollywood as to my own eyes. For me, these actresses will remain beautiful even without make up. They don't need to do anything just to get noticed, some people are just naturally eye-catching.

Liv Tyler

An American model turned actress, born 1st of July 1977. She is the daughter of Steven Tyler, the famous Aerosmith lead singer. She started as a model when she was 14 (supermodel Paulina Porizkova discovered her as a model) and began her acting career a year after. She did her 1st film Silent Fall in 1994 and in just 2 years, got recognized in her lead role in Stealing Beauty. (Is that the reason why she's so beautiful? nah, just kidding).

She also received international recognition for her character as an Elf Maiden named Arwen Undomiel in the fantasy-action-adventure trilogy Lord of the Ring. (That's the time that I really notice her astonishing beauty, she look like a Goddess). She also became more famous in the movie Armageddon playing Bruce Willis's daughter.

Liv has one son to her former husband Royston Langdon, a musician from the band Spacehog. They separated in May 2008.
