28-year-old Rebel Wilson first landed on our radar via Bridesmaids as Kristen Wiig’s wacky roommate. Then Pitch Perfect planted her firmly in our sights, and now the Australian actress and funnylady is working on her first American sitcom, Super Fun Night—which she wrote, produces, and stars in. Is there anything this gal doesn’t do?
Lena Dunham made some waves in 2010 when she released her first film, Tiny Furniture—but it was her HBO show Girls that made her a hit. As you’ve no doubt already heard, she’s got a book in the works, too. What were you doing when you were 26?
We first met Maude Apatow in dad Judd Apatow’s 2007 flick, Knocked Up. Now 15, she’s revisiting the character in the movie’s spin-off/sequel, This Is 40; she’s also become a skilled Tweeter and an astute writer. Catch her over on Zooey Deschanel’s site, Hello Giggles.
Chloe Grace Moretz
Things to look forward to: You’ll be seeing Chloe Grace Moretz on a few of our own rising star lists soon, so be on the lookout! After holding her own in flicks like Kick-Ass and Let Me In, she’s reinventing an iconic role: Carrie White in a new version of Stephen King’s horrorfest. Not bad for 15!
Up next: Music!
