10. Natalie Portman
"Discovered" at the age of 12 in a pizza parlor by a Revlon agent, Natalie Portman always knew she wanted more than a modeling career. She's played a quirky girl from New Jersey (Garden State), a queen (Star Wars I, II and III) and a fugitive in an Orwellian state (V for Vendetta) — and in the latter, she even had her head shaved on camera. Bald really is beautiful.
