Top 13 Hot Young Actresses of 2013

These are the actresses poised for greatness in 2013. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our top 13 favorite Hollywood babes of 2013.

#13 – Zooey Deschanel

With her quirky style and giant eyes, Deschanel rose to prominence through a long line of girlfriend roles. But, once she jumped from second banana to top dog with her own sitcom, “New Girl,” zany Zooey ensured her hipster style would stay fashionable for a while.

#12 – Kerry Washington

She’s been on our radar since the Julia Stiles vehicle, “Save the Last Dance.” It took more than a decade, and a little help from people like “Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes and “Django Unchained” director Quentin Tarantino, to give Washington her due time in the spotlight, but now that she’s in focus her star is shining.

#11 – Olivia Wilde

After a couple of memorable TV turns on “The O.C.” and “House,” Wilde’s journey to the big screen finally stuck with 2010’s “Tron: Legacy.” Cut to 2013 when, between the makeup ads, her relationship with “SNL” star Jason Sudeikis, and her overabundance of movies, you can barely escape her.

#10 – Blake Lively

“Gossip Girl” is finally over, so the monkey of a weekly television series is off Lively’s back. With strong turns in “The Town” and Oliver Stone’s “Savages” under her fashionable belt, she’s rinsing off the CW residue and gaining serious acting cred – while also making her mark as a fashion icon.

#9 – Elizabeth Olsen

Olsen took the indie world by storm with her role in 2011’s “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” The younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, this Tisch School graduate shows just what kind of chops are possible when you don’t learn everything you know about acting from Dave Coulier. Look for her in Spike Lee’s remake of the South Korean flick “Oldboy.”

#8 – Amanda Seyfried

She’s been slowly climbing the “it” girl ladder in Hollywood for the past few years, with a role beside “it” boy Channing Tatum in “Dear John,” and by showing off her singing chops in “Mamma Mia.” Following successful turns in “Chloe,” “Gone” and “Les Misérables,” she’s poised to break big with a star-making turn as the original porn star in the hotly awaited biopic “Lovelace.”

#7 – Carey Mulligan

We hadn’t heard much from Mulligan since she starred with Ryan Gosling in “Drive,” or as Michael Fassbender’s sister in “Shame.” But she hit the big screen in a big way by playing Daisy Buchanan opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Baz Luhrmann’s long gestating adaptation of “The Great Gatsby,” so 2013 is a landmark year for her career.

#6 – Jessica Chastain

She killed Bin Laden and killed during awards season. Chastain hasn’t stopped working since her Academy Award-nominated role in 2011’s “The Help,” and while she may have a few years on some of her new Hollywood counterparts, experience is everything. What could 2013 hold for her?

#5 – Anne Hathaway

After showing off her blossoming maturity in flicks like “Brokeback Mountain” and “Rachel Getting Married,” everybody’s favorite ex-Disney princess spent 2012 working her ass off – literally – for roles in “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Les Misérables.” For Hathaway, 2013 is the year to reap the rewards and collect an armful of hardware.

#4 – Mila Kunis

Her career has only gotten brighter since she played the perfect girl in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” A co-starring role in the surprise mega-hit “Ted” led into a meatier job in Sam Raimi’s 2013 production “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” so it’s only uphill from here.

#3 – Emma Stone

Emma Stone-cold fox is everybody’s favorite girl next door. Her star-making turn in 2010’s “Easy A” catapulted her onto the A-list where she has firmly remained with films like “Crazy, Stupid Love,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” and 2013’s stylish “Gangster Squad.”

#2 – Rooney Mara

In 2011, Rooney Mara stepped into the boots of Lisbeth Salander, and came away with an Oscar nomination. For her next trick, she’s starring in three films by three top directors: Spike Jonze, Steven Soderbergh, and Terrence Malick.

#1 – Jennifer Lawrence

J-Law has officially caught fire with not just two Oscar nominations to her name, but also two enormous franchises in “The Hunger Games” and “X-Men” – not to mention the indie cred she earned from “Silver Linings Playbook.” We’re sure her winning streak will continue through 2013 when the second “Hunger Games” movie hits its target. And if not, we always have her hilarious “Late Show” appearances.
