Anna Kendrick, 24, Actor
By the time she was 12, Kendrick had been nominated for a Tony. Five years later, she was onstage at City Opera. Now she has a sizeable part in The L, Jason Reitman's George Clooney-starring, Oscar-buzz-generating follow-up to Juno. Remember what that movie did for Ellen Page? And look how that turned out. Oh, right— Whip It.
