Who’s hot and who’s not is always up for consideration, but as the times change so do people’s perspectives. What was popular a decade ago is far different now, and the same goes for the celebs guys thought were attractive. With newbies taking over the scene, the “latest and greatest” always come in first.
Not to say the same actresses from years ago aren’t still stunning, but turn back the clock and these gals were all the guys could talk about. They had fellas falling at their feet thanks to their good looks and famous faces.
These 20 actresses have made watching TV and movies more enjoyable. Not only are they talented, but their beauty shines through. Ten years has flown by, so let’s give these gorgeous gals the attention they still deserve. After all, beauty only fades if we forget about it, and these gals still have plenty of sizzle seeping out of their pores.
20 Eva Mendes
Eva is one hot mama, and a decade ago she was the talk of the town. These days, her popularity has simmered down, but it doesn’t mean she’s not still gorgeous.

19 Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer is one of those actresses that all sorts of guys find attractive. She’s not as big as she once was, but she’s still considered a beauty. Rewind ten years, and the actress was at her peak. Fellas couldn’t get enough of her cuteness and bubbly personality. She’s still successful, but her popularity was on the upswing years back.
18 Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay still makes the headlines, but it’s not necessarily due to her looks. Not to say she’s not attractive, but these days, it’s her behavior that makes people take notice.
