    kristen stewart es la mejor por algo esta en el puesto numero 1 como siempre..!

  • Angi

    @Dirkstar: I agree but she was in two big hits this year. She was the lead in both of them. I would much rather see her then someone like Minka Kelly, or freida Pinto. Who are untalented, lame actresses who get papped for shopping then working. Both are C listers going D List. freida pitno espacially. Ugly girl.

    people commenting on this post don’t seem to understand that it’s not about acting ability or talent or a ranking of the person themself, it’s about PAGE-VIEWS and how popular they were this year. jesus people, learn to read and comprehend.
    which brings me to my next question: are there people who still care about vanessa hudgens? ugh

  • John

    All these women on this list are movie stars, besides Nina Dobrev. She’s only on this list because any chance she gets to talk about Emma Watson or her relationship with ‘in the closet” Ian Somerhalder.
