Things To Come

Arguably the most revered actress in international cinema, Isabelle Huppert’s acclaimed career has spanned 5 decades with a prolific filmography that spans numerous countries. Huppert’s performance in Michael Haneke’s 2001 “The Piano Teacher” is often cited among the greatest performances of the 21st century.

In 2016, New York Times film critic A.O. Scott wrote, “Isabelle Huppert: great actress or world’s greatest actress? Once that is settled (in favor of the second option, of course), we can turn to more advanced Huppertiana.”

The most nominated actress for France’s Cesar Award with 16 nominations, Huppert received 6 Best Actress Cesar Award nominations in the 21st century, winning Best Actress in 2016 for “Elle”. Huppert won Best Actress at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival for her performance in “The Piano Teacher”.

  • Pingback: The 25 Best Actresses of the 21st Century | Roberto Cimatti()

  • Mortimer

    All in all, solid list. In my opinion Cate Blanchett should be in the Top 2 and Rooney is better actress than Scarlett.

  • Nicolas Delattre

    I agree with the list and Mortimer’s comment. In my opionion Chastain should be higher, too. Her performance in Tree of Life was amazing. Also, no Kirsten Dunst, really ?

    • Dunst deserves much more respect

      • dahszil

        agree

        • Seán MacAonnaidh

          Why Dunst? Which films?

  • An

    Anne Hathaway should be in here. Her performances in Rachel Getting Married, Brokeback Mountain and Love and Other Drugs are amazing.. And Les Mis!!

    • Special_One

      Really? Amazing? In Brokeback Mountain and Love and Other Drugs? In Brokeback Mountain all she does is fuck Jake Gyllenhaal and ride a horse. In Love and Other Drugs there’s not even a horse.

      • An

        That last phone call scene in Brokeback is amazing, it implies that she killed him and that her character was a wolf in sheep’s clothing. And The shaking scenes in Love and other drugs are great, she successfully portrayed early Parkinson’s. Anyway, that’s my opinion 🙂 you are entitled to yours, no hate here.

        • Special_One

          “That last phone call scene in Brokeback is amazing, it implies that she
          killed him and that her character was a wolf in sheep’s clothing”

          Haha, what? Did you even watch the movie? That’s not what the scene implies at all.

          • An

            She definitely knew about what was happening between them and in an interview Ange Lee said that she was a “predator”, I think she was complicit of the crime.

          • Special_One

            Of course she knew. She knew for a number of years, why would she suddenly have him killed? The predator part is obvious in the movie, you don’t need an interview for that. But it’s not a literal predator, it has to do with the gender role reversal where she is the one hitting on Gyllenhaal’s character, and essentially being the “man” in the relationship.

  • Trent Eon

    Melissa Leo would not be out of place on this list. I’ve been a fan since her Homicide days.

  • Adrian

    I find Emily Watson missing here.

  • Ricardo Correia

    Kristin Scott Thomas?
    Leaving and I’ve Loved You So Long are reason enough for her to be on the list

    • Sven De Schutter

      I agree!

  • I only see 2 members of my beloved Bullet Club in that list. Where’s Jena Malone? Olivia Thirlby? Anne Hathaway? Ellen Page? Evan Rachel Wood?

    What about Maggie Gyllenhaal? Greta Gerwig? Elle Fanning? Kirsten Dunst? This list is booty.

    • Allister Cooper

      Eva Green and Mila Kunis…

    • Dunst and Gyllenhaal most definitely should be on here. Probably Hathaway too. I think Page would’ve been on here if her career arc continued – super talented actor but isn’t getting the offers like she was before.
      I think Thirlby being off is fine, even though I’m a very big fan. Gerwig’s tailor-made for Baumbach flicks, but she’s not better than the women on this list.
      Give it time and Jena Malone will be a shoe in for these types of lists.

      • Thank you for showing respect for my boo, Jena. I’m hoping for her to do a film w/ Scar-Jo 3:16, PO’TMAN MOTHAFUCKA, Page, Hathaway, Thirlby, and Wood as I think it would fucking awesome. They’re my Bullet Club.

  • ttt

    Susan Sarandon
    Rebecca Hall
    Noomi Rapace

  • cristina willigs

    Kristen Stewart?? Really?!!

    • Allister Cooper

      Yeah, XD. I myself was looking for Mila Kunis!

      • Izzy S.

        Kunis can’t act.

    • She’s an incredible actress and has been in several fantastic projects. So yes, Kristen Stewart, really!

    • Nadia

      I presume you haven’t watched Cloud of Sils Maria, Personal Shopper or Café Society?

  • Allister Cooper

    Eva Green, where is she…

  • Izzy S.

    Where the HECK is BRIE LARSON???!!!!!

    You’re telling me that Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson are on here, BUT BRIE LARSON ISN’T???!!!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a3e8a49868cbcce41f9092ac07b17d76c233df0d1d59dd21bb66ec55e48fcebb.jpg

    • Special_One

      Brie Larson isn’t even in the top 100. Not even close.

      • Izzy S.

        “Brie Larson isn’t even in the top 100. Not even close.”

        Are you actually retarded?

        • Special_One

          No, I don’t think I would be able to respond to your comment if I were. Brie Larson might be emotionally retarded though, that would explain a lot.

          • Izzy S.

            “Brie Larson is emotionally retarded.”

            Go fuck yourself.

          • Special_One

            Hmm, maybe I will. Thanks for the tip!

            That’s not how quoting works, by the way.

      • Izzy S.

        “Brie Larson is emotionally retarded.”

        Go f*ck yourself.

      • Izzy S.

        Yup, you’re actually retarded, or just high. If so, it’s time to return your drugs to Walter White.

        • Special_One

          Yes, as we all know, you get high off methamphetamine. I’m not so sure it looks good calling other people retarded, when every single post you’ve written suggests you’re not what anyone anywhere would consider above average intelligence.

          • Izzy S.

            Says the one who said that Brie Larson is not one of the 100 best actresses of all time.

          • Special_One

            I have to correct you there. I said she was not even close to being one of the 100 best actresses of the 21st century. If it was the best actresses of all time we were talking about I wouldn’t even have mentioned it, because she’s so obviously nowhere near that.

          • Izzy S.

            You’re definitely smoking something bad for you, or you are just retarded. Simple as that.

          • Special_One

            I like that you wrote “something” instead of making another reference to a drug you don’t know anything about. I feel like you’re learning.

      • Ricardo Correia

        If he had just made Short Term 12 and Brie Larson she would still be far and above Lawrance and some actresses on this list

  • AmazingAmy

    Kirsten dunst better replace stewart….
    And where is Annete Bening, Emily Watson, Helen Mirren, Greta Gerwig, Mulligan, Maggie Smith, Kristin Scott Thomas, Linney

    With all respect, Streep should be top three alongside Huppert and Blanchett.
    People found her overpraised but she is most consistent and one of strongest working actress today

    I bet that year later this list will changed again depend actresses that will shine this year.

    • Ricardo Correia

      Streep is good, but in my opinion she has only two performances that I would consider for awards, Adaptation (she should have won,) and maybe Julie & Julia, Hupper has more than 2, and better performances by the way

  • Sahin Parvin

    Where the f is Julia Roberts???

    • Izzy S.

      Julia Roberts gave a memorable performance in Erin Brokovich. That is it.

      • Sahin Parvin

        Watch august:Osage county

    • Ricardo Correia

      She is not good in Erin Brokovich, that is ovetacting

  • Tristan Reed

    JENNIFER JASON LEIGH should be on this list!!!!

  • Micke

    Stewart but not Dunst? You gotta be kidding me.

    • austin yearwood

      Dunst is washed up and lives on past glory. Stewart is not everyone’s favorite actress and kinda plays herself but so did Marilyn friggin Monroe. But Stewart moves on and doesn’t rely on the fame of one movie. Dunst however relied too much on the fame of the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy. This list is actresses who put out the effort. Not for slackers, like your beloved Dunst.

      • Micke

        So… Do you know Kirsten personally?
        Also, Marylin Monroe did not play her self because it’s well known that she was a smart brunette rather than a ditzy blonde.

        And the thing is, Dunst *is* a great actress while Stewart just is not.

        Dunst was a rising star before Spider-Man but Stewart would have been nothing without Twilight.

        • austin yearwood

          Marilyn Monroe’ s name always frequently appears on “The Most Typecast Actors” lists of MANY websites! So get your facts together before restating your opinions. And if Dunst is SUCH great actress she should more popular than Stewart? Now, be a man and just admit that Kristen Stewart is not your cup of tea instead of being a whining little bitch.

          • Micke

            I wonder who the whiny little bitch is though. Do you even know what typecast means?

        • austin yearwood

          Dunst was a rising star before Spider Man. Boy, oh boy. Wasn’t she a crappy Mary Jane. Her ” Mary Jane ” was a sniveling brat, desperate for everyone’s approval. In the comic books, Mary Jane Watson is a fiercely independent, outspoken, sexually liberated young woman who didn’t “wait” all the damn time for Peter Parker to come to his senses. Pun intended. Now as for K Stew, she was no doubt between Panic Room and the first Twilight, a fading child star. But Bella Swan is a moody, sniveling little bitch in the novels, so that is what K Stew played. Stewart is also willing to be play not- so likeable characters( even if it means being hated on by random morons like you) where as Dunst is always trying to be the “lovable one”. Stewart respected the source material for her character. Dunst did not respect the material for her character. Dunst respect for Mary Jane went no further than dye her hair red and just put on the green eye- contacts. In my book, both Stewart and Dunst are typecast actresses (which you sound pretty stupid trying to put one over the other). For Taste of Cinema and their list they chose the more relevant typecast actress – which so ” tragically ” for your sniveling ass- Kristen Stewart. Now Mickey, have a great day and tell Minnie I said hi.

          • Micke

            Yeah, you know… Dunst didn’t write the scripts for Spider-Man and also, there are at least three or four comic incarnations of MJ. I do agree that the MJ of Ramis Spidey-films is pretty bad but that’s like I’ve said not really Dunsts fault.

            The problem I have with Stewart is that she seems to be typecast in roles where I just don’t care for the character. Not even when she’s supposed to be likeable and relatable. Maybe she’s much like Jennifer Lawrence; great in the films I just haven’t seen.

          • austin yearwood

            I wasn’t always a fan of K Stew. As for her typecasting, I just got over it. She, herself knows this. That’s what I like about her though. She knows she’s a typecast. Even she has said ” If you don’t like my movies, don’t watch them”. So as far as Kristen Stewart is concerned, you’re just fighting a battle you HAVE ALREADY WON. Take Claire Danes. I don’t like her by the slightest. But it is not the end of the world when some magazine or fellow actors or random person on the street praises her as a great actress. I just take the comments with a grain of salt. As for Dunst, well. Here’s hoping to a great comeback!

  • Fuentes

    This is such a Western outlook on cinema. The majority of the list is composed of actresses from Hollywood. In order to make a strong and unifying claim as “Best Actresses of the 21st Century”, the writer of this piece should be intellectually obligated to specify in the title that his viewpoint is oriented towards a certain region or industry. For example, “25 best Hollywood Actresses of the 21 Century” would be a much fitting topic for this author.Taste Of Cinema keeps propelling these clickbait, half-cooked, amateur articles. I know, I know….Taste Of Cinema is not trying to be a serious, academic web outlet, with its loose vetting policy for writers, or its ‘top 10 list’ article form, but there are some good writers and articles here and sometimes I just wish there was more consistency in quality.

  • T Brown

    Watching The Handmaid’s Tale this weekend, I can’t help but wonder when Elisabeth Moss will be added to the canon of greatest actresses of our time. I’ve seen many lists like this lately but have yet to see her talked about at the highest level. She may not have the right roles to show it yet but I hope that will change soon, she deserves more love.

  • Werner

    Kirsten Stewart? Is this a joke?

    • shane scott-travis

      You haven’t seen Stewart in Personal Shopper. She’s wonderful in it, her grief is wholly palpable and played with 100% conviction. If you’ve ever lost someone close to you, like a sibling, you will be instantly compelled by the honesty & heartbreak of her performance.

  • George Eskiadis

    Isabelle Huppert at #1 ? No.. that position belongs to Naomi Watts.I cant think of another actress who deserves more recognition. Where is Anette Benning (one of the most talented actresses , still going)??? you should do a top 50 and include talents like Blunt, Rapace, Mirren, Gerwig, Linney, Kunis, Malone, ER.Wood, M.Gyllenhaal, E.Fanning, Hall…the list is endless make the right choices 😉

  • brenda wiryo

    i almost believe this list until you fucking put kristen stewart in it

    • Gilles Ello

      You haven’t seen her films for Olivier Assayas.

    Where is Samantha Morton?

    • Ricardo Correia

      Really missing

  • Nat

    Diane Keaton!!!! Helen Mirren!!! And these guys may or may not be top 25 but could easily replace some on the list (ahem Kristen, Scarlett).. Uma Thurman, Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon, Kelly MacDonald..

  • Dave Nosanaj

    Hilary Swank.

  • Ricardo Correia

    Laura Linney deserved to be top 10

  • Ricardo Correia

    Laura Linney
    Carey Mulligan
    Brie Larson

    • Seán MacAonnaidh

      Awww shit, Carey Mulligan. Good call. Emily Watson, too.

  • Horacio David Figueroa Varela

    Almost ok with the list, but seriously… Where the f is eva green?

  • Rasa Petrovic

    Please dont make any more lists

  • Nikolai Persona

    “The 25 best actresses of the 21st century” of the some european countries and US (only one chinese and one australian and none from other important countries in the cinema, like Japan, Korea, India, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Poland, Mexico, South Africa, Iran, etc.). The person who wrote this list really watches cinema or only english speaking movies and a few others?

  • Gúirito

    It’s sad that people are stuck on Stewart’s performances in Twilight movies. I am not a fan of her [I am not really a fan of any particular actor/actress and just watch whatever movie I am interested in] but she’s definitely improved over the years. She’s taken mature roles and did them well. I know there are many good actresses out there but Stewart wouldnt be considered one of the best paid actresses if she’s that bad.

  • Samantha

    This is a pretty solid list. Much better than some of the others being posted lately.
