1. Julia Stiles
Julia’s got beauty, talent, dance moves, and a brain to boot.
Julia Stiles burst onto the scene as the angst-ridden Kat Stratford in 1999’s 10 Things I Hate About You and quickly rose the ranks to America sweetheart-dom.
Just as she entered the world of major fame and fortune, she decided to take a step back and attend the prestigious Columbia University, where she majored in English literature. Although some people questioned her timing, the talented actress is grateful for her decision and the fact that she has worked to build a life outside of her career.
