Nowadays there are some really talented actors and actresses being constantly discovered each year. Hollywood usually gives them a big role and sometimes they burn out due to being 'liked too much, too early' (which I don't believe in). Lately I've seen a lot of real talented actresses and so I've decided to compile my top 5 (as of now!). These aren't my all-time top 5 but just of late. Enjoy and don't forget to comment!

5. Emma Stone

Emma Stone is a great example of an actress who not only has a great sense of humor and wit but also is a very good dramatic actress. She showed her funny side in films like: Zombieland and Easy A and we've seen great performances from her in films like The Help. At the young age of only 25, Emma is sure to keep making great films.

4. Amy Adams

Our second red-head on the list so far, the very talented Amy Adams has gone through what Mathew McConaughey is going through. She has come a long way since Enchanted to even get nominated recently for best supporting actress for American Hustle (where she stole the show). I particularly liked her performance in Her which many people don't account for how real and raw her performance was.

3. Shailene Woodley

A relatively new yet completely captivating actress that I often call an Emma Stone-Jennifer Lawrence hybrid. She is funny, down-to-earth and an incredibly real actress. She was the stand out performance in both The Spectacular Now and The Descendants. She is soon going to become one of the biggest actresses in the world with the release of Divergent and then Amazing Spiderman 2/3 where she will play the famous Mary-Jane.

2. Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth Olsen is the youngest of the Olsen sisters (not one of the twins) but she is most talented of the siblings by far! She is a very underrated actress in my opinion and is definitely going to be a huge star soon with films coming out such as: Godzilla and Avengers 2. Both of those films will sky-rocket her career and deservedly so! I can't wait for this actress to become more known.

1. Jennifer Lawrence

There will be 3 types of people (and their reactions) to this being my number 1 choice. (A) the 'grudgers' who don't like how popular Lawrence is getting because they "knew her before Hunger Games". (B) The fans who are obsessed with this woman cause of who she is. And finally the category I fall into, (B) The people who think Lawrence is an exceptional actress and just so happens to be really funny and cool too. Choose your side Moviepiloters but you cannot deny this woman's talent. If you don't like her go watch American Hustle or Silver Linings: The Playbook.

I'd love to know your top 5 so leave a comment below!
