Actress Joan Collins laments the lack of beautiful actresses in Hollywood, insisting audiences are "starved of gorgeous people" on the big screen.

The glamorous Dynasty star believes the modern film industry would be much more exciting if studios cast more attractive stars in their movies - and she's convinced Angelina Jolie is the only actress who lives up to the legends of the silver screen.

Collins tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "I have to say, there aren't that many good-looking actresses around today. I mean, there's Angelina Jolie and there's... Angelina Jolie. But I can't think of any really beautiful actresses. Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn't call her beautiful. She's no Ava (Gardner) or Lana (Turner). I think that is why (British singer) Cheryl Cole is popular - because she is just so pretty and the public are starved of gorgeous people."

"When I was a kid watching movies, everybody on screen was gorgeous. I think show business has lost a lot of its magic in that way."
