July 14 is the French national holiday known to us English-speakers as Bastille Day, celebrating the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Occurring simultaneously with the American Revolution, our two nations grew up together and were early allies. We Americans may not always understand the stinky-cheese eating, expensive wine-drinking French friends, but we love them just the same. And the fact that they have plenty of hot actresses is just icing on the eclair. Using the IMDB starmeter, ranking actresses on popularity via user activity, we present you with the 25 hottest actresses from France. So put on your beret, start humming “La Marseillaise,” and check out France’s wonderful gifts to the world.
