Where You’ve Seen Her: The British actress got her start helping out slacker English students in the 2005 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, the BBC series Bleak House, and the TV movie Northanger Abby. After this 19th-century stint, Carey hit it big with her starring role in An Education; the part earned her an Oscar nod and international attention. She went on to appear in Public Enemies and Brothers. Presently, she stars in Never Let Me Go alongside fellow British babe Kiera Knightly. And this Friday, she'll hit movie theaters as Gordon Gekko's estranged daughter in Oliver Stone's sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. We're feeling greedy for more screen time with Carey--and greed is good, right?
