Get to Know 9 of the World’s Most Famous Actresses With Hollywood, Nollywood, Bollywood Squared!: they are Angelababy, Bruna Marquezine, Deepika Padukone, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, Doona Bae,…
What is the measure of success for these women? Is it box-office numbers? Instagram followers? Number of bodyguards required when traveling? Work they find rewarding? Or could it be, in some formula yet to be identified, degrees of separation from Adam Driver? (Three of these actresses have starred opposite him—Johansson, Rohrwacher, and Golshifteh Farahani.)
