TOP 10 HOLLYWOOD ACTRESSES WHO CAN ACE THE NEGATIVE ROLE IN A MOVIE
With no formal training in acting, this pretty face lady stunned us with her killer attitude when she played negative roles like The Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland and of course, the bad-ass witch from the final four instalments of the Harry Potter series. When she danced around with a wand and singing her victorious song, we knew that no one could have played the character of Bellatrix Lestrange any better. A woman of a substance possessing great versatility is one of the best British actors in this industry.
2. Isabelle Furhman
Her biggest career break came along with her role of Esther in the psycho-thriller movie Orphan. This portrayal of Esther landed her many critical acclaims and was hailed as “one of the greatest examples of acting from a child performer in many years”. After that movie, we knew that she is not just an average girl that you happen to pass by. And she proved us right when she came back with her role of Clove in The Hunger Games. There’s not a single person who could have done justice to this character except her.
Dewy eyes and big pouty lips are her weapons when she’s in a negative role. Don’t think so? You might want to re-watch The Dark Knight Rises and swoon over the Catwoman over there. Yes, there have been other actresses playing Catwoman before but we can look at Anne and say, “Man, she is one hell of a Catwoman!” We know for sure that it would take a lot more years to top that performance of her. We can say that she is just the right Catwoman we needed when we see her astride on her classic bat-cycle, and of course when we heard her say, “Oooops!” As smooth as cream.
An award winning actress, Imelda Staunton, is best known to us for her role of Dolores Umbridge in the two Harry Potter movies. And maybe those awards on her shelf are the answers to how she made us hate Umbridge even much, much more than Voldemort himself. Many successful films under her name, she managed just too well with this role as well. Well, if not much we all agree that she made the character, Dolores Umbridge, the most despised character in the whole world.
After her The Hunger Games, JLaw was in everybody’s eyes a true she-roe! And just then, she appeared on screen as the villainous Mystique in X-Men. We were a little diffident of how she would be switching her goody image to a baddy one. But she aced the blue-bodied character with her unique charm and ease, and sure we held onto our hatred for the character, but love for the actress bloomed even more.
6. Kate Winslet
The gorgeous belle, was recently seen on screens playing the role of an ambitious Faction Head, Jeanine Matthews. And she excelled on her skills to bring life to the character from pages to screen in the movie Divergent and its sequel, Insurgent. Sure we detested the woman in blue outfits on pages, but were unsure on how to hate such a beautiful lady on screen. But she left no lacuna in proving her mastery on acting by winning hearts even by being in a negative role.
Fairy tales reside in a very sensitive corner of our heart, and we all have been very well acquainted with the Stepmother of Cinderella from the moment we laid our eyes on the book of Fairy Tales. And since then, we have been loathing this selfish lady with all our heart. When last year, Cate Blanchett played the role of Stepmother in the movie Cinderella, we could not love her more for doing justice to the character marvellously. Her sharp eyes were surely the windows to her hateful soul that she held when portraying the role on screen.
When we are on lines of discussing Fairy Tales, how can we forget the Evil Queen who wanted to be ‘The Fairest of them all’? Julia Roberts matched up to our expectations quite well when she continuously cut paths with Snow White on the screens in the classic twist-tale movie of Mirror Mirror.
Cruelty dripped off her when she appeared on screen in the first Narnia movie as Jadis, The White Witch. Her striking look and those cold stares made us cringe when she called the wolves to give her task. No wonder we hate her character so much as she showcased her talent as perfectly as was possible.
10. Nicole Kidman
The beautiful blonde assumes the role of this villainous character Mrs. Coulter, and we all wanted to throttle her neck right through the screen. She kept us on the edge of our seats throughout the film,and we absolutely loved how Nicole Kidman portrayed the role of Marisa Coulter so brilliantly.
