Leading Ladies We’d Love to See as ‘The Next Julia Roberts’

Picture 1 of 9

Hollywood is filled with beautiful, talented actresses, but every time a new movie hits the theaters, it feels like the same cookie-cutter actresses (sorry, Katherine Heigl) are playing the lead roles while industry insiders fret over finding "the next Julia." We think it's time for a new type of leading lady in Hollywood, someone who can bring some diversity and authenticity to the movies we love. These are some of the talented actresses we want to see star in Hollywood’s next big blockbuster.

Which actress do you think deserve a starring role? Tell us in the comments below!

    Of this list, I really like America and think it would be great if she were in more shows or movies. She is a great activist for kids and quite pretty. I guiltily love Grey’s Anatomy and stopped being such a supporter of Heigl because she was much better in the show than in most, if not all, of her movies. Just my personal, super biased opinion.

    It is positive for young women to see actresses with curves and varying skin colors to be portrayed as attractive in the media. I hope against hope that Hollywood will expand what it deems sexy for the benefit of everyone (not just the 110-pound women that are six feet tall)!
