We’ve already had a look at the hottest of all male actors under 30 for 2015 and now it’s time for us to pay the ladies the same respect. We hope you’re sitting comfortably – there are some big movies in this post, and some super hot women. With the likes of Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence and Nina Dobrev coming up, this is gonna be jam-packed with gossip!
Without any further ado, we’ll jump right in into the 30 hot female actresses under 30 for 2015!
1 – Jennifer Lawrence
She’s hot, she falls over a lot and she NEVER says the right thing. Jennifer Lawrence, born Kentucky August 15th, 1990, is the girl’s girl, isn’t she? She’s the one actress the guys want to date and the girls want to be BFF’s with and apparently now, she’s single again too.
Despite notching up an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, a BAFTA, two Golden Globes and a bunch of Critic’s Choice Movie Awards, she’s had a press bad time of things of late. Her on-off relationship with About A Boy star Nichols Hoult has been more off than on and they most recently split again in August 2014 citing disruptive work schedules as the reason behind the split. Then there were those naked photo leaks….
She’s not hiding from the media frenzy of course. She handled all difficult situations (including that embarrassing trip on the the stars when she went to accept her award) in true girl-power style and she went on to do what she does best… Made a couple of hit movies!
There’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 due out in 2015 plus another movie called Joy in which she stars alongside Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in the drama about a struggling single mom. Keep your eyes peeled!
2 – Scarlett Johansson
She turned 30 just a couple of days ago on November 22nd (born in New York in 1984), and she’s still one of the hottest women in the world. Sadly, Scarlett Johansson is another chick that has been in the media because of some very public photo leaks. Luckily things have gotten better for the blonde bombshell with new baby, Rose Dorothy born to fiance Romain Dauriac in September 2014.
Not just making babies and getting engaged, she’s been busy making movies too and she has the eagerly-awaited Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out in 2015 in which she plays the stunning Black Widow. Plus… there’s The Jungle Book and she’s the voice of Kaa in the movie – the slithering snake!
3 – Emma Stone
Oh come on – we all fell in love with Emma Stone in Easy A, right? What about Crazy, Stupid Love? Surely you’ve seen that one? What about The Help? Everyone loved that film?
One minute she’s a fiery redhead and then she’s a bubbly blonde – whatever the hair color, we all love Emma Stone both men and women alike. She might be only 26 years old (born November 6th, 1988 in New York) but she’s certainly made her mark on the silver screen and has been part of some of the funniest, most brilliant films of our time.
She’s been a busy girl recently too, and has two films set to be released in 2015. There’s a project in which Woody Allen is said to be heading that’s currently a big secret. There’s also a Cameron Crowe film coming out which again, seems to be super-secret. We haven’t seen a bad film of this beautiful girl so we are sure whatever the films end up being, they’ll be awesome. Just as awesome as Superbad! 😉
4 – Nina Dobrev
We know her from The Vampire Diaries but Nina Dobrev isn’t just known for her TV work you know. Bulgarian-born Nina Dobrev is just 25 years old (born January 9th, 1989) and is starting to branch into film work.
There’s just one film set to come out in 2015 called The Final Girls in which Nina plays a girl called Vicki. Alexander Ludwig is also in the new movie, and so is Adam DeVine. It’s a horror-comedy and the plot-line kinda sounds a little bit like Scream… Grieving daughter in need to avenge her mother’s killer. Sounds familiar, right?
5 – Amanda Seyfried
Pennsylvanian-born Amanda Seyfried (December 3rd, 1985) might just be 28 years old, but she’s certainly a great name in the acting world. Considering the fact she suffers from stage fright, panic attacks and anxiety, she’s taking on some pretty meaty roles with films like Chloe and Mean Girls under her belt. Oh and who could forget about Les Miserables?
Believe it or not, there are no fewer than four movies starring this beautiful blonde coming out in 2015. Fathers and Daughters, for example, also stars Jane Fonda and Diane Kruger in a drama that promises to be a pretty gritty watch. Plus there’s Ted 2 and she’s in that… We cannot wait for that! Hands up if you laughed like a maniac when you watched the first one!
There’s another Disney style movie hitting our screens too with Pan. You’ll see Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard in the movie too. Levi Miller is playing Peter Pan. Super excited for this one!
The Social Life is the fourth and final film that Amanda Seyfried will be releasing in 2015. There’s a pretty dire stab-in-the-back situation in this comedy, and it sounds like one the girls will want to watch…
6 – Vanessa Hudgens
25 year old Vanessa Hudgens was born in California on December 14th, 1988 and has come quite a long way since her Zac Efron dating days. Oh come on – we’re all jealous. We’d give our right arm to go on a date with this hottie, let alone have a relationship with him for five years. She’s now happily dating American actor, singer and model Austin Butler now though, don’t worry! 😉
She has one film coming out in 2015 called Kitchen Sink which is every bit the comedy-horror you thought it might be. Ed Westwick is in this movie, however, which adds to the totty-factor in this zombie-style movie that promises to be quite a funny watch.
7 – Keira Knightley
British born Keira Knightley is an absolute stunner, right? Plus she’s acted alongside Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. We’re all insanely jealous. Born in Islington, London in England on March 26th, 1985, she’s now a household name, coming a long way from her The Hole days in which she literally filmed the entire movie in a great hole under the ground. It was a gritty watch and not always pleasant, and she’s just taken on grittier and grittier roles ever since.
The recently married Keira (she married the guy out Klaxons – James Righton), has had many films released recently, and there’s quite a few more to come too. 2015 is seeing her release the movie Everest. The adventure / drama / thriller will see her starring alongside many Hollywood greats including Jake Gylenhaal, Robin Wright, Josh Brolin and Sam Worthington in the film that sees the group try to climb Mount Everest with disastrous consequences.
8 – Dakota Fanning
Hannah Dakota Fanning was born on February 23rd, 1994 in Georgia, US and is perhaps best known for her roles in films such as the 2005 delight with Tom Cruise – War of the Worlds, the 2012 hit The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2… in fact, all of the Twilight movies, The Secret Life of Bees, and plenty more.
Her social life is kept relatively private and she seems to be going to university whilst holding down a stable relationship with model, Jamie Strachan who she’s been dating since 2013, so things appear to be going very well, and with a few obvious hit movies due to be released in 2015, her luck is just going from strength to strength.
Franny is the first film she’s going to be seen in, and Theo James, Richard Gere and Clarke Peters are in this movie too. This drama looks to be quite interesting, and so does the second with an “announced” untitled project also due out the same year.
9 – Emily Browning
We loved her in Sucker Punch, and she was also in the 2011 film Sleeping Beauty but there’s more good stuff to come from this beautiful song actress. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that she is just 25 years old.
She’s Australian and was born in Melbourne on December 7th, 1988 and although she took a small break to complete her studies, she’s back with a vengeance with a couple of films due out in the next year or so.
Shangri-La Suite, for example, is a drama which will see her starring alongside Twilight legend Ashley Greene, and cutie Luke Grimes too. Legend is also out in the same year and has Tom Hardy in the thriller. Clearly this is a must-see film.
10 – Emma Watson
We can’t believe how much little British Harry Potter cutie Emma Watson has all grown up! French-born Emma is just 24 years old (born April 15th, 1990) but she’s got some pretty impressive stuff notched up under her belt. My Week With Marilyn, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, 8 Harry Potter movies (plus one short), and Noah amongst many others. There’s quite a few more coming too…
The thriller Regression will see Emma Watson playing the part of Angela Grey in the movie that follows a father (Ethan Hawke) being committed for a murder of which he has no recollection. There’s also the drama Colonia Dignidad which sees her being transported back to 1973. Finally there is La La Land also starring Miles Teller in the movie that follows the story of an aspiring actress and the jazz pianist that falls for her.
11 – Teresa Palmer
28 year old Australian Teresa Palmer is a model as well as an actress and you must admit – she is pretty hot. She’s been in a few films over the years including the 2006 scare-fest The Grudge 2 plus Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler in 2008, and she was also in the hit film Warm Bodies alongside Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence’s ex boyfriend.
There’s a few films starring Teresa Palmer coming out in 2015 and just one of the ones that we got quite excited for was Knight of Cups which will see her starring alongside Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and Wes Bentley. There’s also the eagerly-awaited remake of the 1991 hit film with Patrick Swayze – Point Break. It would appear that she’s been pretty busy considering she had a baby in February of this year (2014) with husband Mark Webber, a well established actor and director.
12 – Odette Annable
29 year old Odette Annable was born in California on May 10th, 1985, and you will probably recognize her from her role in the 2008 film Cloverfield. We didn’t understand what was really going on in the film… Did you understand it?
That’s not all she’s known for of course. There was the 2009 Jessica Alba film The Unborn that she starred in, plus 2006’s The Holiday and the 2007 film Transformers.
The Truth About Lies is her 2015 film, and it’s set to be a good one. A rom-com featuring on a guy in a tangled web of lies, it looks like it could be quite funny! 🙂
13 – Kat Dennings
Most of us love Kat Dennings from the hit TV show Broke Girls but she was also in the 2011 film Thor, the 2008 film Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and The House Bunny which was released in the same year.
To Write Love on Her Arms is the 2015 film to look out for if you are a fan of this brunette beauty, and you’ll see her playing the lead role in the drama-biography style film. You’ll also find Chad Michael Murray, Mark Saul and Rupert Friend in the movie.
14 – Ahna O’Reilly
Perhaps best known for her role as Elizabeth Leefolt in the 2011 film The Help, Ahna O’Reilly (born in California on February 17th, 1985) has quite a number of films on her resume! She made her debut in 2003 in Bill the Intern and since then has gone from strength to strength starring in a pretty impressive string of movies. 2008 saw her in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, she had a small part in the hit TV series The Vampire Diaries in 2011, appeared in How I Met Your Mother, and is set to appear in one of the most gripping looking films of 2015.
Sleepwalker is a thriller which will see Ahna acting alongside Rachel Melvin and Richard Armitage and is definitely one to keep your eyes peeled for.
15 – Dianna Agron
A director, singer, dancer and American actress, Dianna Agron is only 28 years old but has had quite the career background. Born in Georgia on April 30th, 1986, she is very well known for her part in the Glee franchise as well as being able to boast about being in films such as the Christina Aguilera and Cher collaboration in 2010 – Burlesque, 2011’s I Am Number Four, and plenty more.
2015 is set to be a good year for this little cutie with four reported films on the cards – Headlock, A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island, Bare and Famous. It’s A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island that we are quite excited about – this thriller will also star Minnie Driver and Ed Westwick!
16 – Lily Collins
Another British beauty on the list and this time, we come to 25 year old Lily Collins. Born in Surrey, England on March 18th, 1989, she is perhaps better known for roles such as Mirror Mirror with Julia Roberts in 2012, or even The Blind Side in 2009.
Not just an actress, she models too, although 2015 is showing to be a good year for her acting career rather than her modeling one. There’s an untitled project due to come out in the year with Warren Beatty behind it. Let’s watch this space to see what happens?
17 – Mia Wasikowska
Alice in Wonderland actress Mia Wasikowska may only be 25 years old, but that hasn’t stopped her from trying to make a name for herself in Hollywood. Born in Australia on October 14th, 1989, she actually started her career doing Australian film and TV before moving onto the US silver screen but with films like the 2011 Jane Eyre behind her, it would appear that she is on the up!
Crimson Peak is the movie to look out for in 2015, especially if you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of this cutie, and with Charlie Hunnam in it as well, you won’t be short of male eye candy to marvel at. It’s just a shame he’s not playing the leading role in Fifty Shades of Grey anymore… Sigh.
18 – Zoey Deutch
Born in LA on November 10th, 1994, 20 year old Zoey Deutch may be young, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know what she’s doing. Already starring in a fair few films that have made the headlines such as 2011’s Ringer with Sarah Michelle Gellar, or the 2014 film Vampire Academy, she has a few more to come including the 2015 Good Kids – a comedy also starring Ashley Judd.
19 – Saoirse Ronan
Considering she came from The Bronx in New York City, Saoirse Ronan hasn’t done too badly for herself with nominations for BAFTA’s, Golden Globes and Academy Awards flying her way, especially after the 2007 film with James McAvoy and Keira Knightley – Attonement.
Of course, you can’t forget about her role in the 2011 film Hanna, or the 2014 film The Grand Budapest Hotel, or the 2009 The Lovely Bones.
These days, she’s moved quite a way from The Bronx, choosing to live in Ireland, and she’s still making movies. She actually has two films coming out in 2015 – Brooklyn which is a rom-com with a bit of drama set back in the 1950’s in Ireland. Plus there’s Stockholm, Pennsylvania which also stars Cynthia Nixon from Sex and the City, and is a drama – thriller we are quite looking forward to!
20 – Brie Larson
She got to star alongside Channing Tatum in the hit film 21 Jump Street so instantly, we are jealous of this 25 year old actress. Born in California on October 1st, 1989, she’s actually been in quite a few films that we enjoyed watching. The 2013 film Don Jon had us laughing most of the way through, and there’s a few films set to come out for 2015 too.
There’s Brooklyn Bridge, Room (which she is currently filming), Digging for Fire and Trainwreck. There’s also Basmati Blues which sounds like it might be a good watch.
Digging for Fire looks quite interesting – a drama also starring Anna Kendrick and Orlando Bloom. In fact, we’ve not seen Orlando for a while… It’s good to see he is back! Back to Digging for Fire though and it follows a husband and wife and the pains of having a long-term relationship. It’s something I’m sure we can all relate to!
21 – Gemma Arterton
Born in Kent, England (only half an hour away from where one of our British writers grew up!), Gemma Arterton is a 28 year old actress responsible for some of the most life-changing films of our time although you might not have realized it yet. With hit movies like the Prince of Persia films, Hansel & Gretal: Witch Hunters, and the Bond film Quantum of Solace behind her, she’s been a busy girl over the last few years and it doesn’t look she’s slowing down at any point soon with at least three films set to be released over the next couple of years, and one of those is coming out in 2015.
Reds and Grays is currently in pre-production and will see Gemma Arterton playing the voice of Sammy in the animated movie that will follow a war between red and gray squirrels. It sounds like one big kids and small kids alike will enjoy and let’s face it; we all love a good animated film. Remember how bonkers the world went over films like Shrek and Toy Story? It’s about time we had a good new one to enjoy!
22 – Jessica Szohr
It was Gossip Girl that first shot 29 year old Jessica Szohr to fame, but she’s since branched out into the world of films and surprisingly enough, has a couple of pretty big ones behind her already. Do you remember the 20013 film The Internship? She was in that one. She was also in the so-bad-it-was-funny 2010 film Piranha 3D. Two Night Stand in 2014 is the one that she seems most popular for these days, although there are a couple of new ones set to come out in 2015 that you should keep your eyes peeled for.
Club Life is coming out next year and sees Jessica Szohr alongside Robert Davi in the drama following a night club promoter desperately trying to make a name for himself in the tough world of New York City. Sounds like one we might just enjoy!
23 – Julianne Hough
26 year old actress, dancer and singer-songwriter Julianne Hough is best known for that crazy good remake of the old film Footloose. Do you remember the cute faced, slightly naughty girl in that film? Well, Julianne played the lead role.
She hasn’t been in many films over the years but she was in the 2010 film Burlesque (although a small part) and also the 2013 film Rock of Ages. There is one film due to come out soon called Curve that will star this pretty little actress and a rather nasty accident in her car after coming into contact with a hitchhiker. We do love a good thriller!
24 – Abigail Breslin
She may only be 18 years old but New York-born Abigail Breslin is certainly making a name for herself. Appearing in her first commercial at the age of three, she’s been used to the spotlight for a while, and this has perhaps helped her in her drive to get to the top. Born April 14th, 1996, she has starred in the 2006 film Little Miss Sunshine, 2009’s Zombieland, 2011’s Rango and even 2002’s Signs.
There is just one film due out for Abigail in 2015 (although there are a few more in the pipeline for 2016/17) and this is Maggie which has recently completed filming. Another zombie style film that will follow Abigail as the lead role of Maggie with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Joely Richardson acting alongside her.
25 – Sophie Turner
Another British beauty and Sophie Turner, an 18 year old actress was born in Northampton, England on February 21st, 1996. Probably best known for her role in the hit TV show Game of Thrones as Stansa Stark, it would appear that she has decided to branch further out in to film work, with a number of films starring her set to be released in 2015.
Barely Lethal is just one of these films and also stars Jessica Alba in an action-adventure / comedy about a teenage special ops agent.
If that’s not quite your cup of tea, you might want to check out Alone in which Sophie Turner will play Penelope – a girl that befriends a war veteran (Mark Kassen) who suffers with PTSD.
There is also the long-awaited Mary Shelley’s Monster which looks like it might be a really good to film to catch, and with Jeremy Irvine starring alongside her in the drama film, there’s a chance for some eye-candy too.
26 – Emilia Clarke
Another Games of Thrones beauty, Emilia Clarke is a 27 year old actress again from England but this time, London. She was born on May 1st, 1987 and has actually received an Emmy nomination for her part in the TV show.
Another pretty TV girl that seems to fancy joining the greats in films, there’s a couple coming out over the next few months and just one in particular is Terminator: Genisys, a film that we have already mentioned a couple of times.
There’s also another film which she is currently filming called Voice From the Stone which looks pretty freaky – keep your eyes out for it!
27 – Heather Morris
We bring you another actress from the world of Glee and this time it’s Heather Morris, the 27 year old from California. Born February 1st, 1987, she’s a model, singer and dancer as well as an actress, and has just one film coming out in 2015 called Most Likely to Die.
A horror film with a plot every bit as scary sounding as the title, Heather Morris joins the likes of Perez Hilton, Skyler Vallo and Jake Busey to come together in a film based on a high-school ten year reunion…
It’s been a busy year for this pretty lady as in August of 2014, she got engaged to a guy she went to high school with (but didn’t know at the time) called Taylor Hubbell. They also have one baby boy together called Elijah who is just over a year old.
28 – India Eisley
Known for her role in the 2008 film The Secret Life of an American Teenager, India Eisley is such a little baby at just 21 years old. Born in LA on October 29th, 1993 you can also spot her in Underworld: Awakening back in 2012 and also the 2014 film Kite. It’s The Curse of Sleeping Beauty that we are quite looking forward to – one of her 2015 films. Joining this one will be two others – Social Suicide which is considered to be a thriller examining what it takes to get yourself noticed on the internet. Its bound to be a pretty controversial watch, that’s for sure.
If you want something a little more thriller, you could alway check out her third and final film to come out in 2015 – Sitter Cam.
29 – Samantha Barks
24 year old Samantha Barks from the Isle of Man, England was born on October 2nd, 1990. A singer as well as an actress, you’ll find her in everything ranging from TV to film although it was her part in Les Miserables that shot her to fame.
Managing to juggle her relationship with musician and actor Richard Fleeshman with her busy career (unlike some other celebs we could mention), she’s been working hard for 2014 and 2015 with a couple of films still set to be released before the end of the year, plus one set for 2015 too. Caesar is the film adaptation of the Shakespeare tale, and you’ll see her playing the part of Portia.
30 – Jena Malone
Another actress that has only just turned 30 on the 21st November, Jena Malone from Nevada is an up and coming actress who has quite a few achievements under her belt despite being relatively young. She was in the 2011 film Sucker Punch along with Emily Browning, and can also be seen in the 2005 film Pride & Prejudice, the 2007 film Into the Wild, plus the 1997 film Contact.
Bottom of the World is the first film starring Jena Malone that is set to be released in 2015, and will see her acting alongside Douglas Smith and Ted Levine in a thriller that will mystify you. You could always just check her out in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, of course, and none of us can wait for that film. She’s also in the middle of filming Batman v Superman: Dawin of Justice which, let’s face it; all the guys are going to really enjoy. It has Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Henry Cavill and Diane Lane in it too so there’s plenty of eye-candy all round.
There are many up and coming young actresses set to grace the silver screens with their presence over the next couple of years so remember, in all those films you see them, you saw them here first! Is there anyone that you think has been left off the list? Let me know your thoughts and comments below!
