Top Ten Cool Leading Ladies: Movies and Music Cafe

Tom over at Movies and Music Cafe decided to give me a list of his top ten cool leading ladies, and it is a rather impressive list! Tom runs an awesome site with a great little menu offering an array of starters, mains and desserts, ranging from movies, reviews, books, soundtrack and the likes. It is a very cool site that I would highly recommend checking out!

Should you be interested in submitting a Top Ten list, draw up a list of either your top ten personal favourite movies or a top ten list by a specific genre/theme and send it along to me at Hope to see a few more lists!



Audrey Hepburn (1929 – 1993) One of THE style icons. Coolest Role: Breakfast at Tiffanys.

      1. Dearest JB,




        P.S. I have been exceptionally busy today, being the only person working in my department. CRY CRY CRY CRY CRY


      2. Dearest JB,

        UGH!!!! I was wondering why you were being so quiet. It’s almost over for me here. Talk soon.




  1. Excellent list! Audrey Hepburn was perfection as both an actress and as a human being; her devotion to charitable endeavors for the benefit of others seemed to know, no bounds. I have liked Natalie Portman since I saw her in the professional, and I love Jennifer Lawrence in everything she does.


  2. Nice picks here Tom!! Love that you have Hepburn in #1, I definitely agree. I also love her in Roman Holiday and My Fair Lady, definitely one of Hollywood’s screen legends!


Be bold, share your two cents!
