Hollywood Top Ten… Actors Under the Age of 30

Within the first three months of 2010, we have seen an unusually high number of new films starring actors and actresses under the age of 30. Among them: “The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond” (Bryce Dallas Howard), “Youth in Revolt” (Michael Cera), “The Book of Eli” (Mila Kunis), “Fish Tank” (Katie Jarvis), “When in Rome” (Kristen Bell), “Dear John” (Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried), “Valentine’s Day” (Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway, Taylor Lautner, Emma Roberts, and Taylor Swift), “The Wolfman” (Emily Blunt), “Shutter Island” (Michelle Williams), “The Good Guy” (Alexis Bledel), “The Yellow Handkerchief” (Kristen Stewart), “Alice in Wonderland” (Mia Wasikowska), “Remember Me” (Robert Pattinson), “Our Family Wedding” (America Ferrera), “The Runaways” (Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart), “Chloe” (Amanda Seyfried), “The Hot Tub Time Machine” (Clark Duke), and “The Last Song” (Miley Cyrus). Therefore, I thought I’d offer my personal list of the 10 best actresses (last week) and actors (this week) under the age of 30…

    serious, thank goodness pattinson is nowhere to be seen….enough of him

    Because Michael Cera is terrible. Keanu Reeves has better range than he does.

    Gosling at #1 is a no brainer. But Lebouf?! Seriously?

  • April 6, 2010 | Permalink |

    Yes , it’s a personal list. I thin everybody has a personal list. Is it bad, that i don’t like half of these actors? For me spec enough of Shia.

  • April 7, 2010 | Permalink |

    YES! You listened to my Paul Dano and Jesse Eisenberg suggestion I tweeted. BUT..SETH ROGEN???? Are you joking? i mean…idk about that. talented? yes, but Top ten worthy?

    ‘ ‘oh thank god no rpattz” blah blah blah… Give the guy a break already. The whole hating on Rob thing is ridiculous and really old.
    I think Robert Pattinson deserves to be on the list…

  • April 7, 2010 | Permalink |

    No RPattz? You have to be kidding right? I agree with you anya. some people hate him just because of his popularity. It’s really ridiculous.

    In your Hollywood Top Ten list , actors stronger than ‘actresses

  • April 7, 2010 | Permalink |

    i agree with all of it except paul dano.

    no channing tatum? no jonah hill? no michael cera?

    robert pattinson as an actor is a big joke ? i’m glad he isn’t here..

  • April 7, 2010 | Permalink |

    any of you on this comment blog are not americans ?haters most of you are

  • April 8, 2010 | Permalink |

    I tried really hard to figure out you criteria for this list. Not box office results. Not acting ability. Not ability to get films made. Not salary. Not fame. My only conclusion is that you have the hots for these guys.

    Anyone ever get the feeling tah Shia LaBeouf is, like, a jerk? I don’t knoe, he just gives off that vibe.

  • May 24, 2010 | Permalink |

    But Robert Pattinson has two emotions: upset and awkward. It is really hard to tell the difference between them. Ben Whishaw is so scary in his picture. But I love Bright Star.

    where is robert patinson, Heath ledger,daniel radclif, rupert grint …???

  • July 22, 2010 | Permalink |

    Robert Pattinson deserves to be on this list about as much as the Harry Potter and High School Musical kids. (In other words, not at all.)
