These sexy models can act!

These sexy models can act!

Those of you who think models can't act have probably not seen these women in action.

Whether it's Hollywood or Bollywood, some models-turned-actresses have proved that they're more than just a pretty face. When we asked our readers who they thought were the best model-turned-actresses, we got consistent answers. Here are the top 10 popular choices, according to you.

Katrina Kaif

With back-to-back hits like Namastey London, Welcome, Partner and Race, the sexiest woman in the world is laughing all the way to the bank.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
This former Miss World knows how to strike a pose as well as to deliver hits. She lets her expressive eyes do all the talking in her films like Hum Dil De Chuka Sanam, Guru, Jodhaa Akbar and Sarkar Raj.

Preity Zinta

This bubbly actress has come a long way since she captured our attention in her Perk ad. Those dimples have mesmerised us from her Dil Se days to her IPL appearances!

Priyanka Chopra

This former Miss World exploded on the screen with her performance in Andaz, for which she won a Filmfare Best Female Debut Award.

She followed it up a critically acclaimed performance in Aitraaz for which she won the Filmfare Best Villain Award.

And now, this pretty damsel is all set to transport us into the future with Love Story 2050.

Deepika Padukone

This tall and slim former model with bewitching eyes may just have one Hindi film, Om Shanti Om, to her name.

But what a film it was! And when your co-star is Shah Rukh Khan, you've pretty much arrived!

Sushmita Sen

Winning Miss Universe in 1994 was just the beginning of the journey for this talented actress.

From Biwi No 1, for which she won the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award, to Main Hoon Na, there is no stopping Sush!

Lara Dutta

This winner of the Gladsrags contest, Femina Miss India Universe and Miss Universe beauty pageants was the only thing bearable in last year's flop show, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom.

Angelina Jolie

What can we say about this dynamo? From modelling at the age of 16 to a UN goodwill ambassador, Miss Jolie is a heady combo of beauty and talent.

And please don't get us started on her acting. Girl Interrupted, anyone?

Penelope Cruz

The face of L'Oreal cosmetics can switch from vulnerable to tough in the flick of an eye.

No wonder she is the first Spanish actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the 2006 Spanish Almodovar film Volver.

Juhi Chawla

After winning Miss India in 1984, Juhi became one of Bollywood's leading ladies, starring in a number of successful films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Darr, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, Yes Boss and Ishq.
