Coming Soon: This multi-genre actress will star in the upcoming flicks Welcome to the Riley’s and Adventureland as well as taking a lead role in the horror/romance Twilight.
Hotness factor: This natural beauty, born in Colorado and raised in Los Angeles, has come a long way since co-starring with Jodie Foster in Panic Room when she was just 12.
