The Hottest Female Actors Under 30


Mirror, mirror on the wall – who is the fairest of them all? It’s impossible to say really with the amazing amount of hotness going on around the world at the moment. That’s why we’ve brought you 20 of the hottest female actors under 30 today; in no particular order:

Jennifer Lawrence (1990)


The world’s highest paid actress is also under 30. Jennifer Lawrence is both hot and easily relatable. The star of the Hunger Games and X-men is one of the world’s most popular internet searches too. She’s also a serious talent with three Golden Globes under her belt too.

Emma Watson (1990)


Proving that you can move on from Harry Potter and still be a global sensation; Emma Watson might, however, not be happy to be included on our list. When she’s not acting and promoting universal education access for women – she’s championing feminist causes. It would be hard to deny Emma’s universal sex appeal on this basis though.

Lea Michele (1986)


It’s just 5 days until the 29th of August when Lea would no longer be eligible for our list; so we’re glad that she’ll be making one of her last pre-30 appearances here. The star of Glee appears to have bounced back from the post-Cory Monteith (her co-star and boyfriend who died of an overdose) blues and her career is on the up again.

Margot Robbie (1990)


Margot Robbie’s role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has firmly secured her “hottest under 30” title – not that it needed much in the way of securing; she’s been capturing the hearts and minds of the public ever since she appeared opposite Leonardo di Caprio in Wolf of Wall Street.

Emily Browning (1988)


Emily’s role in Sucker Punch is what has brought her to the attention of many but she’s been in plenty of previous hit movies including Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events back in 2004. She’s not always in the limelight because she’s also studying full-time at university back in Australia.

Holland Roden (1986)


The star of Teen Wolf on MTV Hollen Roden was once hell bent on becoming a surgeon but thankfully today she’s on the small screen and for the moment she’s here to stay.

Alessandra Torresani (1987)


The star of American Horror House, Big Bang Theory and Playback may not be one of the best known actresses in Hollywood but she’s definitely smoking hot and thus she makes our list with comparative ease.

Heather Morris (1987)


Our second Glee cast member, Heather Morris was the bisexual Brittany but she’s now hitting the big screen in a bunch of movies though it remains to be seen if she can make the jump to A-list draw; she’s certainly a big attraction for us.

Emilia Clarke (1986)


One of the biggest stars of the biggest show in the world, Game of Thrones, the English Emilia Clarke is Daenerys Targaryen and needs no real introduction; if you don’t think she’s smoking hot, there’s a dragon which wants a word with you.

Blake Lively (1987)

From the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants to that role in Gossip Girl; Blake Lively’s an actress, model and all round hottie. There’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing more of her work in the near future as she’s also a hot property in Hollywood.

Emmy Rossum (1986)


OK the adaption of Shameless from the UK wasn’t without its faults but one blessing was that it brought Emmy Rossum to the notice of the viewing public. She was also in the terrible The Day After Tomorrow where you can’t be blamed for having missed her.

Ashley Benson (1989)


Hanna Marin from Pretty Little Liars but Ashley’s more than a one trick pony and has starred in Eastwick and Spring Breakers. She’s also in Elvis and Nixon with Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon.

Ariana Grande (1993)


Possibly the only thing we remember from the abysmal Zoolander 2, Ariana Grande, is both hot AND cute which is a disturbingly attractive combination.

Sarah Hyland (1990)


Who would have thought in the first series of Modern Family that Haley Dunphy, played by Sarah Hyland, would turn out to be such a stunner. She’s an actress with a decent movie pedigree too and we’re hoping to see a lot more of her in the future.

Nina Dobrev (1989)


Nina’s best loved work so far is as Elena Gilbert in the teen supernatural thriller – The Vampire Diaries. However she’s been in quite a few movies and shows in the past and will be in next year’s XXX: The Return of Xander Cage too.

Ashley Greene (1987)


We’ve forgiven Ashley for appearing in The Twilight Sage as Alice Cullen and she’s definitely moving up in the world having starred with Bryan Cranston (of Breaking Bad) in In Dubious Battle. Ashley is definitely gorgeous too.

Julianne Hough (1988)


The actress who has been on Dancing with the Stars and won it twice is definitely lithe and lust worthy. She also starred in the remake of Footloose in 2011 and it’s generally agreed she did an incredible job despite the movie’s somewhat dated premise.

Kristen Stewart (1990)


Bella Swan of The Twilight Sage is what Kristen is best known for but she’s been up to much more; she’s won a BAFTA, a Cesar, a Young Artist award, a People’s Choice award among a host of other things. She’s also one of the highest earning entrants on this list and the only thing sexier than a successful actress is a loaded successful actress.

Francia Raisa (1988)


She might me a little on the short side but there’s nothing about Francia Raisa that would deter the average hot blooded male from crawling over broken glass to talk to her. She was in the sequel to Bring it On in All or Nothing and this year she should have been in 4 box office hits by the end of December.

Jane Levy (1989)


While Jane did star in Shameless, the US adaption of the English comedy, her best known role is in Suburgatory as Tessa Altman. She’s red haired and red hot as the last entrant on our top 20 hottest female actors under 30.
