It’s been a bit of a long, slow climb to the top for Tom Hardy, but as the Lawless star turns 35 today, we think his success couldn’t come at a better time. After breaking into the scene as a model and stage actor, the Londoner starred in a number of British TV movies — notably making many swoon with his Heathcliff in 2009′s Wuthering Heights for ITV. Most of us on this side of the pond were still unaware of his talents, and those stunning blue-green eyes, until his role in 2010′s Inception. That basically opened the floodgates for him — he’s since starred in Warrior, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, This Means War, The Dark Knight Rises and Lawless. Next up, he’ll take over Mel Gibson’s titular role in Mad Max: Fury Road. But after seeing him rap to his young son, smile sheepishly after winning a modeling contract and play paintball with Reese Witherspoon, some of us are hoping he’s got some romantic comedy roles in the works too. In the meantime, let’s all wish him a happy birthday and fantasize that he’s starring in our own romance by perusing his 35 hottest looks:

Jennifer Hudson sure has come a long way from placing 7th on Season 3 of American Idol way back in 2004! The soulstress got her start singing in a small church choir in the South Side of Chicago and now she’s an Oscar winning actress, Grammy winning singer, spokesperson for Weight Watchers and Mother to adorable son David! A lot sure has happened to the star over the past 8 years; from dominating her role as Effie White in Paramount Picture’s Dreamgirls, to rocking the stage with fellow VH1 Divas in 2011. As her life has changed so has her look. From her humble beginnings on Idol to her recent dramatic weight loss, J-Hud sure knows how to explore her fashion horizons and we all can’t deny that she looks great doing it! You go girl! I’m sure sexy fiance WWE fighter and Harvard Law graduate David Otunga would agree. With a wedding date set for the near future, and a career that won’t stop we can’t wait to see what this superstar will do next! Head to the gallery below to check out her best looks throughout the years.

Hard to believe, but the multi-talented actress, singer and linguist Kat Graham has only just turned 21 today! We would be inclined to believe the Vampire Diaries star used some real-life witchcraft to accomplish so much at her age, but anyone who follows her on Twitter can tell the girl works nonstop. We hope she’s taking a moment to kick back and enjoy her birthday for a minute, in-between singing catchy new pop tunes and somehow working out whether Elena can avoid becoming a vampire and still live.
What with her power constantly being a pawn in the vampires’ awful battles, it hasn’t been such a fun year for poor Bonnie, has it? We’re glad it’s been one for the “Put Your Graffiti on Me” singer, though. Just check out her neon-splattered, ’90s pop-art inspired wardrobe in the gallery below and you’ll see what we mean. And when you’re done, head over to Kat’s page on TheWaterProject.org and make a donation in honor of her birthday!

It’s no secret that birthday girl Mila Kunis is one of Hollywood’s hottest celebs. As evidenced by her July Interview spread, the 29-year-old seems to be getting even more gorgeous with each passing year. We’ve previously discussed how her perfectly shaped and bold eyebrows may totally be putting Mila on a whole new level of beauty, but this girl seems to be pretty much working everything she’s got. She is striking in an unconventional way that makes us ever so intrigued about what’s going on behind her large, dark eyes. She is mysterious while simultaneously being the girl-next-door … well, if you live near extremely attractive people.
OK, so clearly we have a girl crush on Mila but please tell us how it is possible not to. Not only is she one stunning lady but she radiates a refreshing confidence that is hard not to admire. Starring in successful movies like Ted, Black Swan, Friends With Benefits and The Book of Eli, Mila has demonstrated a unique amount of depth in her acting, talent that may just be the cause for her unflinching self-assurance. Not only can she completely transform into a manipulative ballerina in Black Swan but she also has a knack for comedy, apparent from her long-term involvement in shows like That ’70s Show and Family Guy.
While we might still have mixed feelings regarding Kunis’ recent romance with Ashton Kutcher, we definitely are not confused about how we feel about Mila. This girl is a winner. So without further ado, take a look at 29 of her hottest looks to celebrate the day this wonderous woman was born.

Calling all True Blood fans: Today is our girl Anna Paquin‘s 30th birthday! She may not get to celebrate today as her vampire alter-ego, Sookie Stackhouse, but at least she’ll have hot hubby and co-star Stephen Moyer by her side. With twins on the way, we are sure that this glowing mom-to-be is in for a magical day sans booze, of course. We hope Moyer bought his pregnant wife a yummy cake!
In celebration of Anna turning the big 3-0, we’re taking a look back at her evolution through the years. Let’s not forget that long before she joined the vampire universe, the New Zealand native was stealing our hearts at the young age of 11 when she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her work in 1993′s The Piano. She has continued to lead an impressive career with franchises like X-Men under her acting belt and never ceases to amaze us with how many different hairdos she can rock. Check out how many looks this leading lady has experimented with and tell us which is your fave!

Our favorite Wizards of Waverly Place star has finally reached her 20s! Selena Gomez has grown up right before our eyes. We’ve loved her from from her years of flaunting a punky-girly-rock style on Disney Channel to rocking gorgeous floor-length gowns in music videos for songs like “Who Says.” She’s also graced the red carpet time and time again in some of the hottest evening wear that we totally covet (sometimes, maybe even more than we covet that boyfriend of hers).
We also love how Selena is more than just a gorgeous figure and pretty face. She’s become so invested with UNICEF and concerned about the devastating impact that lack of safe water has on children all over the world. And it’s great to see how her relationships with BFFs Taylor Swift and Ashley Tisdale are so important to her. But back to her wardrobe, we adore practically everything she wears! So much so, that to celebrate her 20th, we want to take a look back at some of her hottest looks.

Kirsten Dunst, who was once America’s favorite pre-teen vampire, turns 30 today. As we prepare watch Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Foy eclipse her breakthrough bloodsucking performance in 1994′s Interview With a Vampire, and Emma Stone takes over the role of Spider-Man’s main squeeze, Dunst has moved on to more grown-up roles. She wowed critics with her performance in Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia last year. This year, we’ll see her as a reluctant bridesmaid in the indie comedy Bachelorette and mix it up with the Beat poets as Camille in On the Road (opposite Stewart and Garrett Hedlund). And now she’s re-teamed with her Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette director Sofia Coppola for The Bling Ring (currently known as “that movie in which Emma Watson has a tramp stamp“).
With her adorable dimples, Kirsten probably could have picked a career as a rom-com staple — but she’s always balanced her cuteness with a bit of a dark edge, and a number of smoldering looks. That’s why we’re taking this moment to wish her a happy birthday with a collection of her 30 hottest looks.
Is there a plot to John Carter? Probably. Is it what will ultimately draw many of us to the theater next weekend? Probably not. I mean, it’s probably got some good qualities, being based on an Edgar Rice Burroughs series, with all sorts of cool themes about underdogs and oppression. But let’s be realistic. They put Taylor Kitsch in that very impractical nipple-baring breastplate/harness thing for a reason, and that reason is not character development. BUT! This is not to say that we completely objectify the man who will always be #33 for us. On Friday Night Lights, Kitsch won us over with his vulnerable performance as much as with that heartstopping smile. And we’re just waiting to see how his new career as an action star, which continues later this year with Battleship, will play out.
Even though he told MTV News that he feels awkward about being a heartthrob, we kind of couldn’t help putting together this little countdown of his 20 hottest looks. It was a tough job to do, but you’re welcome.
