5. Jennifer Aniston.
I don’t care if she’s cute Rachel in the 90s, classy Rachel in the 00s, or a rampant slut in Horrible Bosses, I love Jennifer Aniston. She hasn’t aged a day, she stays sleek and sexy in anything, and her love life is so painfully boring and entertaining at the same time that you can’t help adoring her. I’ve always been a Jen over Angie girl, and I’m standing my ground. My lady-boner for Aniston is unfailing and strong, like the woman herself. Plus, remember when she was naked on the cover of GQ?
4. Anne Hathaway.
Short hair, long hair. don’t care. Anne Hathaway is a boss. She’s played iconic roles like Jane Austen, Agent 99, Catwoman, and others (Les Mis, anyone?) for over a decade now, she’s secured herself a spot and respect in Hollywood, with no danger of plateauing anytime soon. She’s not afraid to bare it all (fun fact: Brokeback Mountain has boobs, too!) or take a risk (shaving her head, losing 25 pounds for Les Mis). Since she stole my heart in The Princess Diaries (brb flashback), she’s just been growing stronger, and getting hotter. Her short hair looks totally cute, and her style on this month’s Glamour -paired with Les Mis Oscar buzz – has pulled her back into the spotlight, and made everyone forget about Bride Wars.
Remember when her and James Franco hosted the Oscars and it wasn’t that good but it still made me happy?
1. Mila Kunis
Jackie grew up. Have you ever seen the video of her telling off a reporter in Russian? It’s one of those fantastic videos from her and JT’s Friends With Benefits press tour, where every interview was gold, solely because mmmmmmmmmmmmmm JT and Mila Kunis in one room. And movie. The video is below if you haven’t seen it; it chronicles one of the millions of reasons Mila Kunis is fucking awesome. She doesn’t take crap from reporters, she’s driven and has initiative (lying about your age to get the job that catapulted your career… pretty ballsy). She grew into herself perfectly, from a cute-but-irritating fifteen year old on That 70s Show, to a sexy, vivacious woman in films like Black Swan, Max Payne, Ted, and the upcoming Oz: The Great and Powerful. Plus, she’s Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive. I feel like that’s a pretty solid ego boost.
1. Jennifer Lawrence.
I just love talking about Jennifer Lawrence. She’s just so fabulous. The world just needs more Jennifer Lawrence. Read my Silver Linings/Jennifer Lawrence post here.
1. Anna Kendrick.
I’ve been drawn to Anna Kendrick since her role in Twilight (what?) as the breath-of-reality-in-a-hopeless-place, Jessica, friend of Bella. While that role may not have catapulted her to stardom, the roles that followed have. Working with George Clooney on Up in the Air, finishing up the now-massive Twilight saga, acting as Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s adorably underqualified shrink in 50/50, a bit in Scott Pilgrim, and a dozen more notable roles have given her staying power. In addition, she got to show off her pipes as the moody protagonist in the hilariously-underrated-but-not-really Pitch Perfect. She’s the second-youngest Tony Award nominee ever, she’s done Carnegie Hall; the girl is talented. Plus, the next movie she’s got coming out is a post-college comedy with Bryan Cranston and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. McLovin, Walter White, and my ultimate girl crush? Say no more.
Plus, she’s fucking hilarious:

And one of her best moments from Pitch Perfect:
Oh, I love Rebel Wilson too. Just saying.
If you’ve seen the movie, here’s a live cover of her “Cups” scene on David Letterman.
