Lights. Camera. Action. There are so many talented actresses in Hollywood who represent strong, beautiful, classy, hard-working, empowering females. They not only play strong female leads on screen, but they are strong females who lead in the real world by their actions. These women are great role models whom we can seek relationship advice from in our love lives, as well as in our careers.

Need relationship advice? Cupid has compiled the 10 actresses to seek guidance from:

1. Jennifer Lawrence: This leading lady in Hollywood has accomplished so much. The Oscar winner is all about empowering women and creating wage equality between genders. She even wrote a wage inequality essay that all women can relate to! The JOY star has also maintained the right amount of publicity when it comes to her intimate celebrity relationships. She doesn’t hide anything, but doesn’t publicize everything either. There was also a revealing leaked photo incident, which she handled like the class act that she is!

2. Kate Hudson: This beauty has made films we all love, and so has her mother, Goldie Hawn. The release of her new book Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways To Love Your Body also encourages women to embrace themselves. She’s a great mentor for health and fitness, and she even has a line of athletic gear called Fabletics.

4. Jennifer Garner: This television and film star has had many hits. Do Alias and 13 Going On 30 bring back any memories? Although she’s going through a divorce from Ben Affleck, she shows us how to maintain maturity even after you’re separated and not a famous couple anymore. Jennifer really just lives for her children, and it’s something we can all strive for!

5. Reese Witherspoon: As America’s Sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon can play literally any role. Whether she’s singing as June Carter in Walk The Line, being a lawyer on Legally Blonde or an innocent Catholic student in Cruel Intentions, she brings her heart and soul to her work and the role she is playing. She has two children with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, and remarried in 2011 to Jim Toth (talent agent and co-head of motion picture talent at Creative Artists Agency where Witherspoon is a client.) The pair have a son together, Tennessee James, who was born in 2012. She’s the perfect example of having a career and making love the second time around work.

6. Jennifer Aniston: Jennifer Aniston will forever have a place in Hollywood. She won the world’s hearts for her portrayal of Rachel Green on the hit series Friends. She is also one of the highest paid actresses in the industry, and in 2012, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her marriage and subsequent celebrity divorce from Brad Pitt, had everyone talking for years. Now, she is happily married to Justin Theroux as of 2015. She’s a great example of having a career first and then finding love when you’re mature and ready. It’s never too late and honestly, she is still young!

7. Julia Roberts: Julia Roberts will go down in Hollywood history as one of the best actresses of all time. The Academy Award and Golden Globe winner, broke out with the romantic comedy Pretty Woman. She also played another iconic female lead, Erin Brockovich. She was married for a couple years to Lyle Lovett in the 90’s, but she has been happily married to Daniel Moder since 2002. They have three children together. Roberts is also the aunt to actress, Emma Roberts, who is inspiring to young girls. It runs in the family!

8. Angelina Jolie: The proud mother of six and wife to Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie proves that having a good heart will always prevail. She has adopted multiple children and has had biological children as well with husband Brad Pitt. She is also known for her humanitarian work, women’s rights efforts and spreading positive messages about inner beauty.

9. Gwyneth Paltrow: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is the proud mom of two children and is very into healthy eating. She’s divorced from Chris Martin, the front man of the hit band, Coldplay. The pair are a great example on how to stay cordial and friendly with one another after separating, for the sake of their children. They still have a good friendship.

10. Tori Spelling:
Donna Martin graduates! The daughter of legendary television icon, Aaron Spelling, is Tori Spelling who has inherited her father’s work ethic. Outside of her career as an actress and author, she shows us that family is the most important thing. She has four children with her husband Dean McDermott. She puts her efforts into parenting and her marriage, this is her first priority!
