Birthday: Nov. 22, 1984
Hometown: New York City

How You Know Her: She hit Hollywood with bit parts in The Man Who Wasn't There and Ghost World, but her breakthrough was her co-starring role in Lost in Translation, which included that amazing undies shot (we refuse to believe she used a butt double; don't shatter the dream). After fetching No. 34 on our 2009 Hot 100 List, Scarlett is lacing up her S.H.I.E.L.D.-commissioned boots as Stalingrad's own hand-to-hand specialist Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. The Black Widow, in Iron Man 2. As if you need another reason to take a sick day today.

Yeah, That Job Is Taken! "I'm a confident young woman. I think along with that comes sexual confidence. But I don't think that means I'm terribly frisky. I don't objectify myself. But I like to celebrate my curves and girliness." —Newsweek

When it comes to these 20 spandex-clad, ass-kicking do-gooders from film and television, we can't think of anyone we'd rather be rescued (or get thrown in jail) by. (And yes, we realize there are some vengeance-seeking assassins, spies and crazies in here, as well. But they're all after bad guys, so close enough to "super" for us.)
