4. CALISTA FLOCKHART

If you remember the comedy series Ally McBeal, Calista played the title character. For that particular character, she won a Golden Globe Award. She happens to be the wife of Harrison Ford and I am sure he needs no introduction. Her acting career began in the year 1989. She is a very talented actress and it surprises me that she does not appear in many movies. Now, whether that’s out of choice or not, is uncertain.
