<![CDATA[Ranker: Recent People Lists]]> http://www.ranker.com/list-of//people http://www.ranker.com/img/skin2/logo.gif Most Viewed Lists on Ranker http://www.ranker.com/list-of//people <![CDATA[The Best Actresses in Film History]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-actresses-in-film-history
The best actresses ever are ranked here in this list of the best actresses in film history. These are the greatest actresses ever to appear on the silver screen - female only (to vote on both genders, check out this list of the greatest film actors and actresses). These women were part of some of the greatest movies of all time (or were perhaps the reason they were the best movies ever), with countless Academy Awards between them.

What are the qualities of the best actresses of all time? Is it the raw emotion they show, the parts they choose, their acting methods, or simply their effortless charm and charisma? There's no denying some of these amazing actresses belong on the list of the hottest celebrities of all time, but behind the 1000 watt smiles lies the talent that defines generations of actresses.

Who is the best actor of all time? Is it a classic actor like Katharine Hepburn, a comedic genius like Tina Fey, a stunner like Catherine Zeta-Jones, or a method actor like Meryl Streep? There are so many choices for the greatest movie actress ever that you may have a hard time choosing just one (although you can vote for as many of the actresses on this list of the greatest actresses ever as you want). If your favorite leading lady isn't on the list, make sure to add her so others can vote for her to receive the title of best actress in film history.

<![CDATA[The Most Glorious Celebrity Man Buns]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/celebrity-man-buns/jessica-lawshe
All hail the man bun! Whether you love it or hate it, you can't deny that the man bun has become a part of our current hair culture. Whether you're driving through the streets of Los Angeles or flipping through the pages of Vogue, you're bound to see some form of the now-infamous styleThat's exactly why we've put together this list of the most glorious celebrity man buns.

Though the popularity of the man bun soared after Jared Leto started rocking the hair style, he did not, in fact, create the man bun. We've got to give him some credit though, he's probably the reason why even your mom knows what a man bun is. Still, many man buns have come before him, including those on David Beckham, George Harrison, and even Buddha. 

Now buns on men might not be your thing... well... hair buns at least, but our list might just sway you. Seriously, can Brad Pitt or Bradley Cooper ever look bad? Regardless of whether it's a slick top knot, a messy half-up/half-down look, an all business bun, or casual brunch pony, all of these stars have embraced the trend in a way that makes us say, "Hey, we might not totally hate the man bun."

So get that hair out of your eyes (by putting it up in a bun, perhaps) so you can take a closer look at our list of the best celebrity man buns. Vote up the man bun that makes you the happiest about this celebrity hairstyle trend.

Chris Hemsworth

David Beckham

<![CDATA[Most Annoying Personality Traits People Have]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/most-annoying-personality-traits-people-have/mansmarbles
What’s Up Chuck? Even a Simple Simon knows letting every Tom, Dick and Harry off Scott Free after displaying these not so Plain Jane character flaws could turn Silly Sally into Sad Sam. But, thankfully, for all you Bitchy Betty's, Moody Judy's, and Debbie Downers out there, this spoiled rotten rank list is here to save Cryin’ Ryan. Whether you’re Curious George, Doubting Thomas or just plain Crazy Daisy, avoiding the Willy Nilly list of Negative Nancy personality traits below could keep the Average Sloppy Joe from becoming Bickering Ben. So, before Clever Clarissa says, “No Way Jose” to Nervous Nellie, for Pete’s sake, place your votes now or hit the road Jack with a Charlie Horse. Jeez Louise, stop Joshing Lazy Susan and get Even Steven!

<![CDATA[The Female Singer You Most Wish You Could Sound Like]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/most-coveted-female-singing-voice/carlybobarly
What female singer's voice would you most like to have? This is a different question than "who has the best female voice ever?" Some of the greatest vocalists have most distinct voices that may not suit your needs. Like, can you imagine Amy Winehouse singing "Sk8er Boi"? Or Whitney Houston singing a Dolly Parton song? ...What famous woman singer do YOU wish you could sound like? Say you can steal any voice like Ursula steals Ariel's. Whose would be the most fun to whip out at parties? Which would best equip you to sing your favorite songs? Which is the most versatile? Which coveted female singing voice would make you the most money?

 When you're done here, go vote on the same question for men: What male singing voice do you most wish you had?


Amy Winehouse

Barbra Streisand

Christina Aguilera

Ella Fitzgerald

Laura Branigan


Tina Turner

Whitney Houston

<![CDATA[Make Your Voice Heard: Who Are the Best Female Jazz Singers?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-female-jazz-singers/rockboy
The best female jazz singers in music history have a sound that's like no other. Their melodies and tones captivate us and keep us coming back for more. Many of the women on this list have been gone for decades, but their incomparable jazz vocals will live on forever. Vote for your favorite famous female jazz vocalists and vote down any artists you don't like. Also, if you have a favorite who isn't listed here, add her! You can also rerank this list of top female jazz vocalists any way you like, including all of them or just a few. Enjoy!

How can any list of top female jazz vocalists not include the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan? Their unparalleled talents are indisputable. Once you get into the best female jazz singers' top 10, it's really hard to pick one over the other.

Arguments can be made, of course, that Sarah Vaughan's versatility makes her the best. Some might say that no one can or will ever match Ella Fitzgerald's incredible tone (and certainly her scat abilities). Others would argue that Billie Holiday is not only the greatest female jazz singer in history, but one of the best female vocalists ever.

Some of the best modern female jazz singers include the always wonderful Diana Krall, Melody Gardot, and certainly Esperanza Spalding and yes, even Norah Jones. Norah's sound is more of a jazzy fusion, but she makes the list. Defining a pure jazz singer isn't always easy: Like Norah, some of the women listed here are both jazz and blues. Either way, they're all fabulous, so vote!

Amy Winehouse

Anita O'Day

Billie Holiday

Dianne Reeves

Dinah Washington

Ella Fitzgerald

Nina Simone

Norah Jones

Peggy Lee

Sarah Vaughan

<![CDATA[Awesome Photos of Celebrities with Their Stunt Doubles]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/celebrities-and-their-stunt-doubles/ashley-reign
Whether or not you're a fan of action movies, you’ve got to admit that there’s something pretty awesome about a badass stunt. The irony of good stunt doubles is that they often make it easy to forget that the stunt you’re watching is not really being performed by the actor. That’s why we decided to give you a peek behind the scenes by compiling this list of  celebrities and their stunt doubles on set.

In these photos of stars alongside their doubles, you’ll see the stunt performers who step in when things get a little too dangerous for your favorite famous actors and actresses. When it comes to some of these celebrity stunt doubles, you might do a double take due to their uncanny resemblance to the actors. You’ll also get a kick out of how different some of these celebrity stunt doubles are from their alter egos.
So if you want to see which sexy female pop star was portrayed by a man in one of her music videos, come on in! We’ll give you a peek at a group of death-defying guys and gals you’ve probably seen in tons of movies but never recognized once. So let’s take a look at the stuntmen and women behind (and occasionally blown away by) the explosions.

Vote up your favorite photos of stars with their stunt doubles and remember that safety always comes first.
