Where You've Seen Her: Blake scored her breakout role in the teen-loved franchise Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and we have to say, any girl who knows how to get in and out of jeans tops our list—our Hot 100 list, to be exact. She went on to smoke up the screen in Accepted and got gussied up as a beauty pageant contestant in her starring role in Elvis and Annabelle, but Blake's small role in New York, I Love You proved she can hold her own against a cast of veterans. While Blake played opposite Robin Wright as a younger version of title-bearing character Pippa in The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, it's her role as rebel Upper East Sider Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl that's made her huge. Up next, Blake kicks up her maturity level to play baby mama and ex-girlfriend to Ben Affleck in The Town, in theaters today.
Sexual Tension: “I have a sex scene in [The Town], and that's never comfortable. You think, Oh, that's going to be so awkward.”—Esquire
