This lady needs little introduction to die-hard "Twilight" fans. She plays Bella Swan in the teen angst series but the 19-year-old is proving that she's more than just a vampire lover. Next, she steps into Joan Jett's rockin' shoes in the biopic "The Runaways" opposite Dakota Fanning.
This Aussie is the total package: intelligent, vulnerable and sensual. And she brings all those qualities to her characters. Kimberly Peirce’s "Stop-Loss" saw her fleeing the law with Ryan Phillippe’s character. (Phillippe is her real-life boyfriend.) But she may have been her loveliest in Jane Campion’s "Bright Star," playing John Keats’ muse, Fanny Brawne.
