Julia Stiles (actress)
The Stiles of the times is Julia Stiles, who's risen above the teen pack with grace and subtlety. Stiles imbues her roles with a sophistication beyond her years and manages to be sexy via intelligence, not the usual hard sell. Best of all, she's humble and was surprised to win an MTV Movie Award for Ten Things I Hate About You. "When I get things like that, I feel like such an outsider," she explains. "I don't consider myself a star." With roles in Save the Last Dance, O, and State and Main, she'd better get used to the spotlight.
