    Yes, Grace Kelly was the hottest actress ever. I guess its an insult to numerous more talented actresses, but she was so beautiful that I can barely remember the movies she was in, since I wasn't paying any attention to anything but her.

    EDIT: Hold on a minute. Grace Kelly was certainly not 27 when she died. Did Grace have a twin sister named "Garce" who died at that age?

    She didn't die, she married the prince of monocle and quit making movies. I think she actually died from a stroke-caused car accident when she was only in her fifties, however.
