Did your favorite babe make the cut? Let's peep the top ten!
10. Jennifer Lawrence
For her Oscar-nominated role in last year’s Winter’s Bone, this perfectly made 20-year-old learned to skin and gut a squirrel. But the self- described tomboy didn’t mind, claiming she went through an outdoorsy “wood-chopping phase” as a child in her native Hollywood. The heart of a guy’s girl in the body of a girly girl? Yup, that’s more than enough reason to justify her straight-out-of-nowhere jump to the top 10 and her imminent Hollywood takeover.
Heat factor: In X-Men: First Class she’s the one who’s blue. And topless. (But, curses, covered with scales!)
9. Cobie Smulders
For the past five years, the Canadian cutie has had us laughing our pants off as ex-teen pop star Robin on How I Met Your Mother. Last Christmas our contributions to the Nielsen ratings paid off when Cobie rewarded us with the greatest gift of all: stripping down for our December cover. “I’m hoping to start a lesbian relationship with Lily on the show,” she told us. Yup, that’s enough to keep our interest for another few years.
Heat factor: The former model was recently cast as catsuit-clad Maria Hill in The Avengers. Fanboys, let your obsessing begin!
8. Natalie Portman
She was a hot queen in Star Wars, a hot ballerina in Black Swan, and a hot scientist in Thor. Just when you thought there were no hot stereotypes left for her to take on, she becomes a hot mom. If we’d known that the newly crowned Oscar winner would end up with a ballet dancer, we would’ve seriously reevaluated our high school extracurricular activities.
Heat factor: Step 1: Rent Your Highness. Step 2: Find scene of Natalie in a metal thong. Step 3: Press pause and praise God.
7. Anne Hathaway
If anyone deserves a spot on the upper echelons of this list, it’s Anne, who’s made escorting our girlfriends to chick flicks almost bearable for an entire decade. The New York native has starred in countless blockbuster flicks (sometimes topless!), voiced cartoon characters (“Hot Blonde” on Family Guy!), and single-handedly hosted the Oscars this year (thanks for nothing, Franco!).
Heat factor: Let’s hope the world doesn’t end in 2012, because that’s when Anne is set to take on the role of Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s next Batman installment. Can you hear us purring?
6. Bar Refaeli
The Israeli supermodel and June birthday girl recently picked up her first film role in the thriller Session, playing a psych patient whose doctor becomes obsessed with her (we see where you’re coming from, doc). However, here’s hoping that her future big-screen roles will require a wardrobe she’s more familiar with: bikinis…and maybe some body paint.
Heat factor: Bar will continue crusading for environmental awareness… while, ironically, raising the temperature wherever she goes.
5. Mila Kunis
Who’d have guessed that she’d grow up to be the hottest former cast member of That ’70s Show? (Sorry, Ashton, but it’s true.) After kicking a** in The Book of Eli, Mila literally danced her way into our hearts as Black Swan’s badass ballerina. We went to see it five times. The Natalie-Mila sex scene was fine, but, man, are we suckers for a good plié.
Heat factor: Need another reason to hate Justin Timberlake? He got to see her naked while filming next month’s Friends With Benefits.
4. Cameron Diaz
From the moment she, um, styled her hair in There’s Something About Mary, we knew Cammie was the girl for us. A French fry-eating, big-wave-surfing former model who’s done her fair share of serious a** kicking and bootie shaking on film, she’s almost too good to be true. Thankfully, she’s real. It would totally trip us out if the lady we’ve been crushing on for more than a decade didn’t exist.
Heat factor: Cameron is back just the way we like her, starring in the raunchy comedy Bad Teacher.
3. Katy Perry
How has the past year been for our 2010 No. 1? "Really difficult, because I have to be pretty every single day!" It sure is nice to see the California Gurl has remained as humble as she is hot since she first caught our attention by kissing girls and shooting whipped cream and fireworks from her, er, heart.
Heat factor: This summer she voices red-hot, blue-bodied Smurfette. We’d like to smurf that!
2. Olivia Munn
This has been a big year for Miss Munn: The Attack of the Show! geek turned into a satire goddess on The Daily Show and jumped to her highest Hot 100 position yet. With her second Maxim cover this February, Olivia told us, “I wanted to show something different: that you can be sexy and smart and a 2011 woman.” It’s true: Skewering those fat cats in Washington has never been sexier.
Heat factor: Olivia cannot be contained on the small screen—watch out for her in the upcoming comedy Freeloaders.
1. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
All hail Maxim’s new queen! When we first heard rumblings of a Megan Fox replacement in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, we wept into our Optimus Prime pillows for weeks. As it turns out, director Michael Bay found someone even foxier. Making her Hot 100 debut at the No. 1 spot and scoring her first big screen role in the next Transformers, please give a warm, not-creepy welcome to supermodel and all-around British bombshell Rosie Huntington-Whiteley!
Heat factor: Forget the Hells Angels …Rosie earned the world’s most prestigious set of wings courtesy of Victoria’s Secret in 2009.
Pop princess Rihanna finished # 22, Kim Kardashian came in at # 35, and Ciara placed at # 62. Surprisingly Beyonce didn't make the the list at all.
