'Easy' Charm

With small roles in movies such as Superbad and Zombieland, Emma Stone wasn't a stranger to the big screen when Easy A hit theaters on Sept. 10, 2010. Yet the smart teen flick was her first shot at reaching leading-lady status, and her effort was a great success. The native of Scottsdale, Ariz., solidified her spot in Hollywood when audiences fell in love with her husky voice, comedic timing and endearing girl-next-door look. "I'm not there to be the sexy girl," the 22-year-old actress (who's a natural blonde) told People about her role in the movie. "I don't know that I would ever be able to pull that off. It's nice that those characters I've played feel uncomfortable as well because it's so much more realistic." But her allure isn't hard for Easy A's director Will Gluck to see: "She's going to be the next Julia Roberts," he gushed to Vogue.
