The Top 25 Hottest Hotties of 2012!

Last year was the first year in which we posted our own MovieHotties TOP 25 HOTTIES OF THE YEAR list and since it was quite the success, we decided to run it again this year, while noting all of the *new* girls on the list, as well as the ups/downs of all the rest. The ones that were completely removed from the list from last year to this year actually included our #2 hottie from last year Hayley Atwell, as well as Amber Heard, Blake Lively, Stacey Kiebler, Amy Adams, Freida Pinto, Emma Watson, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Rihanna, Kirsten Wiig, Lake Bell, Zooey Deschanel, Brooklyn Decker, Nicole Scherzinger and Jamie Chung. Which means that 16 new hotties were added to the list this year.

You can check out the full 2011 list HERE or just click on the image above to check out this year's bunch and be sure to post your comments below each hottie that you also dig. This year's list was agreed upon by all 4 writers on the site (Cherry Liquor, Droz, Salacious Crumb and Seth Gecko), and they each wrote up a handful of the entries as well. The criteria we used to select our top 25 included the hotties' 1) popularity over the past year for one reason or another, 2) their hotness and 3) their likeability with our crew (this last one is likely why Kim Kardashian didn't make the list).

Honorable Mentions: Jennifer Nicole Lee & Sophie Turner!

Our two honorable mentions, Jennifer Nicole Lee and Sophie Turner were getting the most out of their purely visual appeal in 2012. While not known for much more than having amazing bodies with impossibly tight, protruding asses, Jennifer and Sophie's several sexually charged public appearances were nonetheless stand out moments in 2012.

#25: Selena Gomez (new)

The little firecracker that could. There have been nothing but positive changes going on in 2012 for Selena Gomez. Finally fulfilling the last of her Disney obligations as she moves further into adulthood, we're seeing her take risks like appearing in the wildly talked about and heavily photographed but hardly seen SPRING BREAKERS, grabbing voice-over roles in children's movies meant to sell (HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA), gaining hipster cred by appearing in the short, "Fifty Shades of Blue" on Funny or Die and, of course, breaking up with Justin Bieber! In 2013, with the movie BEHAVING BADLY, Selena is making another smart move - the film is written by the same guy who wrote STRANGER THAN FICTION, getting bloodied up in the postponed release, AFTERSHOCK (co-written by some dude named Eli Roth) and getting into the action/suspense genre with GETAWAY. It's almost as if she's guaranteed NOT to fail.

#24: Jennifer Love Hewitt (new)

Though I was hoping to push her a little higher on the list, it's nice to see Jennifer Love Hewitt made it as one of our 25 Hottest Hotties of 2012. We'd once thought GARFIELD: A TAIL OF TWO KITTIES was the end for her (though, it was a smash hit overseas), but lately she's been more energetic and dedicated to her work than ever before. Her show "The Client List" (based on the TV-movie that earned her Golden Globe nomination in 2010) premiered early this year, and featured Jennifer gratuitously slipping in and out of sexy lingerie, which has been much appreciated. Along with her conscientious work ethic, Jennifer has also brought back her retro sex-appeal, something we feared would remain in the past. Fear not, schmoes, for it looks like we'll be loving Jennifer's Hewitts for years to come.

- Salacious Crumb

#23: Kat Dennings (-12 spots)

Kat Dennings really began to bust out in the second half of 2011, thanks to her lead role in "2 Broke Girls" (which has often been misconstrued as "2 and a Half Broke Girls"). She was the perfect key to getting that male demographic to keep tuning into a show about two chicks trying to get their cupcake business off the ground. Throughout 2012, her magazine and red carpet appearances have been consistent in filling our "drool back" section with comments like "I'd love to tip that broke girl...with my penis", "I'd give anything to be her bra for a day" and of course, the occasional "boobies!". There may be a pandemic obsession going on with Kat's Dennings, but let's not forget, she's also a pretty good actress, and funnier than most girls in the modern-day sitcom universe. She seems like the kinda gal who'd be surrounded by muscle heads at a house party, and wind up pulling some wallflower into the broom closet instead.

- Salacious Crumb

#22: Jessica Biel (new)

What happened to the love for the Biel? Once was a time that the fanboys couldn't get enough of her ass, making it her most famous feature outside of that time when she posed nude for that one magazine when she was only 17 and still on the self-righteous "7th Heaven." Lately all I've been hearing is that she looks "manly" or other various male descriptives. Her name didn't bring in a lot of money but she had major roles in 4 movies in 2012 (THE TALL MAN, TOTAL RECALL, PLAYING FOR KEEPS and HITCHCOCK) and even got married to Justin Timberlake after all the hype regarding their relationship. For 2013, she's got the lead in EMANUELE AND THE TRUTH ABOUT FISHES, as well as smartly hopping on the David O. Russell train for NAILED. Now's about time for you to flip the switch again, fellas. The Biel is here to stay.

#21: Aubrey Plaza (new)

Some might think that I ended up with the majority of the bottom entries (yeah, I said it and yeah, I know where your minds just went) because I got in some kind of trouble with the big boss. The actuality is that I've always loved an underdog. In the underrated and criminally underwatched SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED, Plaza gets to rock the big screen. In her role as the perpetual office sourpuss on "Parks and Recreation," she's still making us laugh uncomfortably each week. I'm interested to see what she's going to do in 2013's THE TO-DO LIST, where Aubrey takes on the lead character of a woman who hasn't had enough sexual experience and sets off to accomplish some debauchery before she goes to college.

- Cherry Liquor

#20: Maria Menounos (new)

Seeing that this is the first time in the brief history of our Movie Hotties Top 25 that Maria Menounos, I feel as if I might want to point out that she has 24 entries for 2012 alone and yet for some reason, her average hottie rating is a 5.7 on our scale. Out of over 6K+ votes. How could anyone score a woman with this fine of a body anything lower than a 10? Smart, funny, entertaining, gorgeous and into sports?? Y'all been smoking the bad stuff while Maria has just been smokin'.

- Cherry Liquor

#19: Hayden Pannetiere (new)

What a difference a new set of boobs makes. I'd say I was joking but after a lull in her career post "Heroes" fame and a negative word-of-mouth regarding her personal life, Hayden Panettiere was looking at the fast track to Lifetime movie-of-the-week roles. Instead, she dumps the boxer, starts interacting more with her fans (the famous image of her at SDCC rubbing antibacterial sanitizer onto her hands while she grimaced after meeting an attendee needed to be rectified), bought herself a nice perky rack that looks natural instead of grotesquely misproportioned, and joined up with a popular TV fixture to become hot again with "Nashville," a show that many are complaining about missing after its mid-season finale. (Can't we go back to what it was called before: "Hiatus"????) Panties, you might just have saved yourself from a future of Jennifer Love Hewitt proportions.

#18: Christina Hendricks (-8 spots)

While Christina Hendricks did have a noteworthy year thanks to the return of Mad Men and a number of busty public appearances, the biggest Hendricks news of 2012 was the leak of her nude cell pics to the interwebs, where they quickly spread like the wildfire leaked nude cell pics are want to be. While Christina disowns the more elicit images bundled in the release, there's no reason to believe those impressive boobies were anyone's but hers. Of course, if Christina would like to resolve this one way or the other, she could always provide us with a basis of comparison. The ball is in your court, Christina.

- Droz

#17: Candice Swanepoel (new)

Victoria's Secret struck gold in 2007 by adding the stunning South African dreamboat Candice Swanepoel to their army of lingerie-clad Angels. She has since become the face of perhaps the entire fashion and modeling industry, having had more awesome sexy photoshoots released over the past year than ever thought possible in one lifetime. Being good friends with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, some may fear that Michael Bay will drag Candice into the NINJA TURTLES or the next TRANSFORMERS movie, but I would't worry. As for right now, she has no plans to put on her acting helmet anytime soon. Just lots and lots of bikinis and lingerie. Thanks, Candice!

- Salacious Crumb

#16: Mary-Elizabeth Winstead (new)

I was very excited when JoBlo handed me the writing duties for Mary Elizabeth Winstead, since I had her marked down as my second favorite hottie of the year. My first distinct memory of seeing MEW in theaters was in DEATH PROOF, where she wore that enduring yellow cheerleading outfit, and it's been love at first sight ever since. I was officially a victim of "heart theft" when she played Ramona Flowers in SCOTT PILGRIM. Sure, her biggest release this year, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER may have somewhat flopped, but then she went on to play a troubled alcoholic in SMASHED, in which she's received quite a buzz (pun intended). As Winstead's been expanding her horizons as an actress, she's also been evolving into a very yummy-looking woman. Like fine wine, or that Snickers under the sofa, MEW is getting better with age.

- Salacious Crumb

#15: Irina Shayk (new)

Irina Shayk turned plenty of heads with her 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover, which ensured a prosperous 2012 for the Russian knockout. Modelling gigs of every sort were hers for the taking and as a result she was pretty much everywhere you looked this year. Unfortunately, most of those gigs were of a moderate intensity thanks to Irina's steadfast refusal to take it all off for the camera. Despite her insistence on preserving that aspect of herself, Irina still managed to put out some fantastic photo spreads in 2012.

- Droz

#14: Olivia Wilde (-13 spots)

There are very few actresses in this world that make me lust at the mere mention of their name like Olivia Wilde does. For years now Olivia has been getting the spotlight she finally deserved and this year was no different as she took more of an independent route with her acting in various roles such as the dramatic thriller DEADFALL and the romantic comedy BUTTER (she plays a stripper, it's a must-see!). It's amazing how incredibly seductive her looks are as we posted the first official trailer for DEADFALL earlier in the year and to see what would happen I used a screencap of the video showing her giving a very sexy look. Since then that trailer has brought in over 1.3 million views with many of the comments saying they watched the video cause of how incredibly hot Olivia looked in that screencap, that is her power over us. And with nearly 10 projects on the go to be released between 2013/2014, she's one talented babe who we'll be seeing plenty of and we're thrilled about it. Well done Olivia and keep up the good work!

- Seth Gecko

#13: Mila Kunis (-7 spots)

This Ukrainian goddess has had one hell of a year from starring in one of the best comedies of the year called TED to being named Esquire's "Sexiest Woman Alive" and I'm 100% behind that decision. Not only that but I had the pleasure of being in her presence during our JoBlo interviews at the 2012 Comic-Con press conference for OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL and not only was she a thousand times more beautiful in person but also just a very nice girl to be around. Mila Kunis has carved out a hell of a career for herself and it's only getting stronger as she takes on bigger challenges and genres and excelling at all of them. She's hot, she's a nerd and she's funny...does it possibly get more perfect than that? I am not worthy Mila, you're truly a walking goddess.

- Seth Gecko

#12: Charlize Theron (new)

When I first put my thoughts out to my fellow writers about this list, the intensely stunning and talented Charlize Theron was the very first actress I thought of who has had such a great year and looks as hot as ever. Even though the two big summer films that she starred in (PROMETHEUS and SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN) didn't receive the biggest praise from either fans or review critics, one thing was certain which was that Charlize stole every scene she was in. From a hot evil queen-bitch in SNOW WHITE to a hot authoritative bitch in PROMETHEUS, 2012 will be seen as a year when she showed some good ole fashioned dark-side in her roles and I couldn't be happier cause the nastier she is, the more desirable she becomes to me. I seriously can't wait to see her as the female lead in the reboot of MAD MAX next year and everything else that follows.

- Seth Gecko

#11: Kate Beckinsale (new)

If there's one proficiently chiseled creature on this planet who could bring black leather pants back in style, it's Kate Beckinsale, and she did it without even trying. The first movie of 2012 I saw in theaters was UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING, and I wasn't let down by the number of angles in which Kate's magnificent body was displayed in a skin-tight catsuit. Then, of course, she went on to star alongside Jessica Biel in TOTAL RECALL, leading to several heated debates over which lady is the hottest (Beckinsale won every time). You've gotta love a woman who gives her fans what they want, and for Kate, that's her leather-clad bum. After winning the "Jean-Claude Goddamn" award at Spike TV's Guys Choice, she proclaimed "I never thought I'd get to say this, but I think I just won an award for my shiny black ass." Actually, Kate, it's been long overdue.

- Salacious Crumb

#10: Vanessa Hudgens (new)

Vanessa Hudgens has been on the scene for awhile, but 2012 was the year she truly came into her own, both as an actress and a full-fledged hottie. Having officially left the kids shows behind, Vanessa was free to live it up like any 24-year-old hottie celebrity would, with plenty of sexy photo spreads and sexier candid photos hitting the web practically every week. Like her or not, I think the girl is here to stay.

#9: Victoria Justice (new)

2012 was a year when more than a few former kids show hotties blossomed into adulthood, necessitating their move from the doldrums of family programming and into public profiles more in league with their new maturity. Victoria Justice is one particularly beautiful example of such ladies. Already a hit with the tween boys and girls, Victoria spent much of 2012 spreading her name and hottie potential to other, more mature demographics in anticipation of the day when Nickelodeon no longer cuts it. One look around her celebrity gallery proves her success there.

- Droz

#8: Kelly Brook (-4 spots)

What kind of hottest hottie list would this be if we didn't have Kelly Brook in here somewhere? The preeminent English beauty went a little more full-bodied this year than others, sprouting a few more curves in key areas. Being hot by her very nature, Kelly could never let a little extra weight make her skip a beat. In fact, such gains only served to increase her bangability by swelling up all her best features even bigger than they were before. Can't complain about that.

- Droz

#7: Sofia Vergara (+1 spot)

It shouldn't be a big surprise Sofia Vergara has maintained a place in the top 10, or even that she's moved up a notch from last year. The second she arrives at any red carpet gathering, all eyes are immediately sucked into her tractor-beam of electrifying beauty. Charisma and a positivity aren't just good qualities for Sofia, it's her nature. Wherever she goes, birds sing, flowers bloom and tongues drop to the floor. Despite the rubber belly she's been forced to wear in the current season of "Modern Family", Sofia's given us plenty to ogle over this past year. She made for great eye-candy in THE THREE STOOGES, posed for several awesome photoshoots, and ate a whole lot of vanilla ice-cream. If you've seen what she'll be wearing in next year's MACHETE KILLS, you know Sofia's hotness train still has miles to go.

- Salacious Crumb

#6: Katy Perry (+ 6 spots)

Katy Perry had a great 2011 and was virtually guaranteed a similar 2012. With a career that continues to blow up and a reputation as a hottie that grows with every magazine spread or red carpet candid she poses for, Katy has become one of the hottest and most influential women out there today. Now that she has become less dependent on stage theatrics and more confident in herself and her potential as a hottie, Katy's allure becomes stronger and stronger.

- Droz

#5: Kate Upton (-2 spots)

2011 was a great year of introduction for Kate Upton, but 2012 was the year that saw her become big, not only as a model but also as a media icon. With her SI Swimsuit cover she officially reached the big time in modelling. Despite snickering from a snobbish fashion industry, gigs with fashion staples like Vogue and others soon followed, helping graduate her to respectable levels in fashion modelling. Thankfully that turn to the upper echelon of modelling didn't keep her away from more risque content, meaning that her world famous boobs remained on display more than ever before. Thank goodness for that.

- Droz

#4: Emma Stone (+1 spot)

Is it really too much to say that Emma Stone is truly the perfect woman that every man on the planet desires? I'm not just talking about her stunning looks or her sexy voice but she's truly the whole package from her fun personality, her love of all things nerdy and just how funny and talented she is. I'd give anything to live in Andrew Garfield's shoes if only for a day as I think most guys would and that feeling is only getting stronger with time. 2012 once again marked a huge year for Emma as she starred in her first official summer blockbuster aka THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN as Gwen Stacy and did a hell of a job. Not only was she absolutely stunning in it but her character was so well written and performed by her that I consider Gwen in this movie to be one of the strongest female comic-book movie leads in a very long time. Now of course we could have also added THE GANGSTER SQUAD to this year's list of accolades however it was delayed due to re-shoots after the tragic massacre in Aurora, Colorado back during the summer. However the movie will finally be releasing within the next month and from what we've seen so far, Emma will have our hearts racing once again as a babe of the 40's and I absolutely can't wait.

- Seth Gecko

#3: Scarlett Johansson (new)

When reminiscing about ass-kicking hotties from the 2012 summer of blockbuster popcorn movies, you can't leave out Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in THE AVENGERS. With the highest-grossing opening weekend of all time ($270+) there's no doubt Scarlett became one of the most desired women of the year. Fanboys have much appreciated the selection of such a curvy woman to do acrobatics in a catsuit all throughout the film (finally, they can see eye-to-eye on something). If that weren't enough, Scarlett also boldly took on the part of Janet Leigh in HITCHCOCK, and is currently taking on broadway in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof". When the cameras have been lucky enough to capture her image, she's been a knockout every single time. She accidentally made us all feel like the luckiest guy alive when those photos of her new tattoo spread like interweb herpes. When Scarlett's discussed her tattoos, and her life in general, she leads on that there may be a deeper side to her that we don't know. By the way, apparently she despises the nickname "ScarJo".

- Salacious Crumb

#2: Anne Hathaway (new)

What more can you say about Anne Hathaway that hasn't been said already this year? To me this was a very tough battle for the top-spot as both Jennifer Lawrence and Anne have both starred in two huge films in 2012 with at least one of them gaining them massive Oscar praise. For Anne that film would be the already critically acclaimed LES MISERABLES which releases this coming Christmas and there's already massive discussions on whether she's already won or not with her powerful performance was Fantine. In the end it could result in Anne vs. Jennifer for SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK when the big showdown arrives in February. Not only did she gain massive Oscar buzz but she also made a lot of fanboys including yours truly drool excessively at the mere sight of her as she donned the famous skin-tight leather of Catwoman/Selina Kyle in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. She not only looked smokin' hot in the outfit but also proved to be one of the best Catwoman's among a huge amount famous portrayals and in my opinion was only second to Michelle Pfeiffer. This has no doubt been a fantastic year for Anne and I have a funny feeling she's only getting started.

- Seth Gecko

#1: Jennifer Lawrence (+8 spots)

Money talks, as they say. How's this for some verbiage? The estimated budget for the shitty HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET was $6+ million. The film brought in $12 million in its September opening weekend. The domestic box office receipts added up to nearly $40 million by the time November rolled around. Riding solely on the coattails of the popularity that Jennifer Lawrence had accumulated from her lead role in Suzanne Collins' acclaimed young adult novel, THE HUNGER GAMES, a previously nearly unknown actress strolled in and brought audiences wherever she went in 2012. Add the over $408 million domestic gross from that movie, the continually growing pockets of returns for the Oscar-buzzed about movie SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, and you have an actress who brought nearly HALF A BILLION box office dollars in one single year alone. With the upcoming two years yielding sequels to THG and Lawrence's other blockbuster franchise, X-MEN (previously FIRST CLASS and in 2014, DAYS OF FUTURE PAST), there's no other winner in the Top 25 of 2012 Games. Respect the JLaw.
