Lauren Bacall

Lauren Bacall, now 85, who gained success through movies like "The Big Sleep" (a film noir par excellence), "How to Marry a Millionaire" (co-starring Betty Grable and Marylin Monroe), "Murder on the Orient Express" (co-starring Sean Connery or Ingrid Bergmann, among others), and more recently "Dogville" (co-starring Nicole Kidman) , has probably also been well known as Humphrey Bogarts wife until his death in 1957. I love her for her cool looks, her hard-boiled surface, but very feminine core. She has, over the years, barely lost her touch, and as beautiful as she had been in her early works, she still is in her later movies.
