    @Chrome:

    Oops! My bad :) I’m just sick of how overrated most of them are you know ? ;) I saw all the previous lists but never really read the articles ..the word popular has many meanings and I misunderstood it in this sense

  • dd

    Miley Cyrus? What movie did she act in for 2012?

  • Ana.

    Vanessa, Jennifer x2, Angelina & Emma. ** ( Miley too, even if we didn’t really saw her. )

  • um

    can somebody for the love of god explain why the hell do people like vanessa hudgens? she isnt even a talented actress or singer and she acts like shes hot sh*t and i saw her blog once and she sounds annoying. is it the High School Musical fanbase that keeps giving her thumbs up on those really shallow comments just saying “GORGEOUSSS <333" cause they sound like idiotic teenagers.

  • elizabeth

    What is that all about????? Miley wow cant believe cant sing cant act and she is on the list….Yukkkkkkkkkkkkkk

    Yey for Angelina my number one

  • Sofia

    So, women that get some of the biggest hits/comments for you here are left off? So don’t “use” them to get hits for you in the future then.

  • http://justjared michelle

    Not to be rude or anything but why in the world is vanessa hudgens on the list she can’t even act .. kristen stewart acts better than her .

  • Sofia

    Aishwarya-rai. ??!! Who? I’ve never seen her have pages of comments here or anywhere..correct me if I’m wrong…

  • Studio 54

    Fcuk Reese and the horse she rode in on!!!

    I smell a butthurt Krisbian. Maybe Bucktooth Stewart can stay off the casting catch and keep her legs closed next year.

  • Ana

    Haha !! I was so sure of # 1.
    Seems that Jared is a “Robsten” fan.

  • http://ytryrty ohohrich

    Emma Watson should be the no.1 even though she doesn’t get many comments i think she is the best actress of all of these queue

  • Bec

    Jolie FTW.

  • Drogo

    Aishwarya Rai is gorgeous. She looks more beautiful then even Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox.

  • Simian

    Why isn’t Scarlett Johasson on the list? She was in one of the biggest hits this year!

  • potel

    @Sofia: You know who she is.Stop it. Sad that fugly pinto isn’t on the list?

  • oscar

    @um: Haha…Compare to you? I see why people love her. You sound idiotic than the rest of her fans…Blondie is unforgettable thus I like her.

  • carrie

    wait! if Miley Cyrus is an actress,why is Jennifer Garner NOT in the list? Jennifer Garner almost is here every day

  • Richard P

    Go Angie
    I love her

  • nm

    #1=Stewart.. With the difference that Watson, Lawrence, Portman, and Stone are actually worthy of their popularity.

  • katie

    miley, Lindsay???? what the hell?? these girls are flops!!

  • Deano

    LOL, the haters are helping to make Kristen NO. 1.. hahahah! Karma

  • denise

    I like jennifer aniston, reese wihterspoon, blake lively and angelina jolie muchly

  • CboxTT

    KRISTEN ♥ I Love You…

  • mimignyc

    LOL. Why no Jennifer Garner? She is posted by this website everyday.

  • Agatha

    i love you angie!

  • http://angelina-place.com Angelina Jolie

    Angelina Jolie is my forever fav!

  • blue

    Am I the only one who is giving up on JJ. He pushes way to hard for Kate Bosworth, Hillary Duff and Minka Kelly. I gave up on Perez Hilton because he pushed Lady Gaga and Katy Perry way to much last year but at least they have a career. Please change JJ, i dont care to read more about gym, coffee or shopping post

  • Sophia

    Anne Hathaway as Cat woman wa my fav

  • JustinWantsAFrontlaceWig

    Love the photo of JenA above she looks like iggy pop or a man indrag

  • Ginger

    This rating is based on reader’s reading and commenting… It’s not about the quality of their acting abilities… OH my goodness, please readers, chill!! I’m sure Kristen had a lot of hits because of her quick affair with her director and Twilight. Miley is always up in the news about a stripper pole or something like that. hahaha

  • Vamp

    Ninaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Vanessssssssssa! Well I’m satisfied.

  • Sofia

    You should remove Katie Holmes and put Suri Cruise in her spot. Nobody cares about Katie without Suri.

  • Sean

    LOL! I guess those 8 Angie STANS couldn’t spam the site enough this year.

  • notafan

    Yea Right! KStew is the most popular. So actresses should probably take a lead from her. Just do scandalous stuff and you’ll be popular. Bt yea, I agree, she’s someone who is hard to ignore with all her smugness and stupidity. God I hate her

  • http://adzilri bochakuw

    what’s with that pale vampire and needy human,,???geezz gross

  • Maggie Siff

    She is so beautifull and here in Europe we love her.

  • Natasha

    YAy!! I Love Kristen Stewart!

  • Dasha

    Angie #1 ♥

  • beta

    not surprised that kristen is number one considering the number of people who comment on every single post about her even if they don’t like her.plus kristen is also forbes second highest grossing actor/actress of 2012 while jennifer lawrence was lower than not only kristen but robert pattinson and taylor lautner as well. (bring on the thumbs down just cos i said something negative bout jennifer lawrence)

  • dave

    Amanda Seyfried <3 ???

  • aquarius64

    @Selma: Agreed. The women who made the top 5 is because of the number of hits their articles got on the JJ site; and they had articles written about them because they had scandal attached to their names.

  • um

    @oscar: you mean her dumb*ss high school musical teenager fanbase are dumbasses. im nowhere near being a fan of hudgens when she doesnt have nowhere near the talent, authenticity and beauty compared to the likes of emma stone or jennifer lawrence. where does her popularity stem from? her own ego. and suckerpunch was a sh*t movie, stop lying to yourself.

  • Sarah

    Angelina Jolie looks so fake to me. All that she does seems to have the intention to promote herself, like her charities works, her relationship with Pitt, her children, her smiles… I dont know… She seems so hypocrite. For me she is unpleasant. And I dont think she is very beautiful. I mean, she is not ugly, just regular. She is too skinny, too veiny, her mouth is disproportional, her face is not beautiful, is square, big, with a large chin. I really dont uderstand why some people glorify her. Several people do such a nice charities (with their hearts not to promote themselves) and dont get her acknowledgment. And she is not a great actress, just ok. I dont know like a director or writer. Her style is for a 60 year old woman. Seriously, almost all her outfits are ugly. She is overreted

  • beta

    @aquarius64: and you probably commented on posts about the people in the top 5 which means you have added to their posts be popular even if it is for all the wrong reasons

  • yep

    love JEN!
