What Beauties of the 20th Century Would Look Like Today. Vivien Leigh Turned Out to Be Far More Gorgeous Than Angelina Jolie

The official poster for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival was probably the biggest scandal in the history of this prestigious competition. The photo showed a legendary actress from the previous century, Claudia Cardinale. But if you look at the original photo of the woman closely, you will notice that she is 2 sizes thinner on the poster. The Cannes Film Festival organizers thought that Claudia Cardinale didn’t match up with our modern day beauty standards.

Interestingly, Claudia Cardinale herself didn’t see anything wrong with this. “The photo was edited in order to make me look like the woman of someone’s dreams. There is no need to worry about realism here. And as a true feminist, I don’t see any kind of crime against the female body,” she said.

Bright Side realized that the beauty ideals of the 20th and 21st centuries are different, but we wondered what the stars of the past would look like if they complied with today’s standards.

How do you like the changes in the appearance of these famous women of the previous century? Do you think modern beauty standards liven up their look? Or did you like their “before” appearance more?

Angelina Jolie’s relationship with her father, John Voight, has seen its fair share of ups and downs. Their bond, once strained by past disagreements and Voight’s infidelity, underwent a period of estrangement. However, the passing of Jolie’s mother catalyzed their reconciliation, with cinema and Jolie’s children playing pivotal roles in bridging their differences.

Jolie’s journey of motherhood began in Cambodia, where she adopted her first child, Maddox. Their bond was immediate, with Maddox’s smile amidst crying babies sealing their connection. Despite adoption challenges due to baby trafficking, Jolie’s determination saw Maddox officially adopted in 2002. This connection to Cambodia deepened further with Jolie’s film project “First They Killed My Father” and the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation’s work in the country.

Angelina Jolie’s philanthropic endeavors are a testament to her golden heart. From her humanitarian work in Cambodia, sparked by her “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” filming, to her dedication to refugees, Jolie’s efforts are vast and varied. She’s championed women’s rights, especially against sexual violence in war zones, and has been a vocal advocate for health awareness. Her charitable donations, whether from personal funds or proceeds from exclusive photos of her children, have consistently supported disaster relief and other causes. Inspiring her children and drawing inspiration from them, Jolie’s actions underscore her commitment to making a difference.

Actually, I think with the current fashion, Frida would not change her eye brows. Everyone will love her big natural brows, and she would be so proud of them


Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. In these eyes, Vivian is unquestionably one of the most beautiful women of all time. To even mention Angelina's name in the same sentence with Vivian is insulting. I find Angelina exceptionally unattractive, especially those ugly horse lips of hers.
