Where You've Seen Her: If you've missed Kristen as the Emmy-nominated alpha female performer during the last five seasons of Saturday Night Live, you've no doubt caught her scene-stealing appearances in such films as Knocked Up, Walk Hard, Adventureland, Date Night or Macgruber. (Trust us, ace comic timing has never been hotter.) You can catch her in voice-form only this Friday in Despicable Me, where she'll match wits with Steve Carell's supervillain-turned-family man. No Kristen in the flesh? That is pretty despicable...

Derby Girl: [On filming the roller-derby film Whip It!] "It's like a cool, rock 'n' roll party atmosphere, with a bunch of ladies skating and looking hot and beating each other up. But it's all in good fun; they don't really beat each other up." -The A.V. Club
