Vanessa Anne Hudgens

Is there anyone under the age of 25 who doesn't know Vanessa Anne Hudgens as Gabriella Montez from the High School Musical trilogy?
While she is best-known as an ingenue and singer with a couple of gold albums, with her credible acting ability (check out Thirteen), the willingness to do non-dangerous stuntwork (as seen in Thunderbirds), and her love of genre films, Vanessa's standing as a Fantastic Femme is assured!
Offered a role in the remake of horror film Prom Night, but turned it down.
Her singing training is in opera!
Performed all her singing in the High School Musical films and BandSlam.

Both her maternal and paternal grandparents were professional musicians in the 1930s-50s!
Genre appearances include...
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island in 3-D (Kailani)
Sucker Punch (Blondie)
Beastly (Linda Taylor)
Thunderbirds[2004] (Tin-Tin Kyrano)
Robbery Homicide Division "Had"

Mila Kunis was born in the Ukraine, came to America as a toddler, and learned English watching tv, particularly The Price is Right!

When she was 14, Mila auditioned for, and won, the role of Jackie Burkhart on That 70's Show even though all auditioners were required to be 18 or older! Now THAT'S talent!
And, she's been named Esquire's "Sexiest Woman Alive" for 2012!
