...and I think she's ridiculously hot.

She hasn't proven she can act. I think people are more into her style and personality than her actual acting talent.

Lohan should be on this list.

What a shame what's happened to her...

That's the overall vibe I've gotten off her. She strikes me as someone desperately trying to be older than she is.

I'll cast my vote for Anne Hathaway as other have, to me she has that special quality that made Harrison Ford so popular and endearing to audiences many years ago.

My favorites are Kate Bosworth (excellent in the smaller films "Beyond the Sea" and "Wonderland" rather than the mainstream films "Superman Returns"), Alison Lohman (hot fun in "Delirious"), Mandy Moore (check out last year's "Dedication") and Keli Garner ("Lars and the Real Girl", "Man of the House").

That's a very interesting comparison

If Anne Hathaway has yielded a whip in a movie, please point me to it!

Lots of great actresses have been mentioned.

After seeing Vicky Cristina Barcelona, I will have to vote Rebecca Hall. She pretty much stole the move for me.

Obviously you didn't see the masterpiece known as "Havoc" Arguably the movie that put her on the map (for the horny internet nerds anyways.)

No I haven't seen that film, my opinion came from after seeing Get Smart.

I thought she proved her acting chops very well in All the Real Girls.

Alison Lohman should have at least got an Oscar nom for White Oleander, she's one of my favorite young actresses.

Rosario Dawson is just cool.

I wanted to say Angela Bettis and looked up her age. Can't believe she's gonna be 36 in January.

Also looked up Shu Qi, who is now 32.

I guess Yu Aoi is the only one not mentioned so far.

Did you watch all three seasons of Veronica Mars? I thought the same thing as you until I saw the show. And actually she has a smile that is very reminiscent of Natalie Portman. Not so much in that picture though.
