Kristen ranked at # 21
Kristen Stewart is an industry vet, and she’s not even 20 years old. The actress was playing Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room when kids her age were getting their first paper routes. But unlike Haley Joel Osment, Stewart has made the transition from child star to adult actress look relatively easy, namely thanks to her high-profile role as Bella Swan in the big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’sTwilight.When the film hit theaters in November 2008, she and costar Robert Pattinsonexperienced the same kind of unnerving immediate rise to fame that Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet experienced post-Titanic. Posters of Stewart suddenly became makeshift wallpaper inside locker doors in high schools across America, or they substituted as dartboards for all those females who were envious of her onscreen and rumored off-screen time with Pattinson, much to Stewart’s dismay. “I don’t want to be a movie star like Angelina Jolie,” Stewart told BlackBook magazine. “Nothing about being a celebrity is desirable. I’m an actor. It’s bizarre to me that everybody’s so obsessive.”
She grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, but upon deciding to become an actress, she buckled down, finished school early at the age of 17 and booked it west to Hollywood. Although she started her acting career with bit parts on shows likePunk’d and Crossing Jordan, it wasn’t long until Ashley won the part of Alice Cullen in the Twilight franchise, based on Stephenie Meyer’s novels. Reprising her role in both New Moon and the upcoming Eclipse, Ashley Greene makes for at least one good reason to sit through the vampire flicks with your Robert Pattinson-obsessed girlfriend, because you deserve some eye candy too. Also, look for her in 2010’s The Apparition, about a couple haunted by a supernatural being. We promise there are no vampires involved.
