With The Hunger Games raking in $214 million over its opening weekend and the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman topping last week’s Twitter trends, one thing seems sure: female action stars are having the best year ever, and it’s only March. And with Rooney Mara‘s Oscar nod for Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, teaser trailers for Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Kristen Stewart as vampire Bella!) and The Host giving us chills and Lily Collins confirming her role in The Mortal Instruments, the ladies leading up 2012/13′s biggest action flicks are in good company.
We took a look at the women who are establishing themselves as the action heroines of the future, as well as some actresses from whom we want to see more onscreen butt-kicking. Did we miss anyone on our list? Check out our gallery and then let us know!
In her Sports Illustrated days, Elle Macpherson received the nickname “The Body.” Geez, I have no idea why. The supermodel just has the most amazing set of legs on this planet and a killer 6′ frame to match. After 30 years, Elle proves she still has “The Body” and much more. Once Elle graced a record five Sports Illustrated covers, the supermodel turned super entrepreneur created a line of lingerie and skin care products. Those longs legs must keep Ms. Macpherson running as she produces and hosts “Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model” and NBC’s “Fashion Star.” Two handsome adult sons and an obvi fantastic closet later, Elle is still a babe. How does she do it, is what we’re trying to figure out. Either way, she looks fantastic at 48-years-old. Let’s give Elle a big, jealous happy 48th birthday by looking at how she’s managed to keep that body through the years. Happy Birthday!

Lady Gaga has become quite the queen of bizarre fashion. With daring ensembles including sparkling heelless shoes, peculiar wigs, facial horns and of course, red meat, the “Edge of Glory” singer is expected in at all times. It’s safe to say one of Gaga’s biggest jaw-droppers was when she dressed as Jo Calderone. Mama Monster loves to defy gravity and nature often.
But underneath the costumes and makeup, we sometimes forget that Lady Gaga also has striking features and flawless skin (which she attributes to spinach and sex). We often can’t see her true beauty under all that insanity — though we suspect that’s part of the point. But today, as Lady Gaga turns 26 and in honor of her birthday, we’d like to remind everyone that Gaga’s not just crazy, but crazy pretty! Here are 26 pictures of Gaga at her prettiest. Enjoy!

Mariah Carey is a total DIVA — divine, inspirational, virtuous and anointed with a five-octave vocal talent. With five Grammy awards, 18 #1 singles, and 200 million records sold worldwide, Mimi is one of the greatest women in music and is quite the mogul too. Perfume, jewelry, shoes and most recently the new global ambassador for Jenny Craig, no wonder people are obsessed with Mimi. We are too! As if Mariah’s relationship with her husband Nick Cannon isn’t completely adorbs, her two bundles of joy twins Monroe and Moroccan totally melt our hearts.
Over the last two decades, Mimi has evolved into a force to be reckoned with. Her look has definitely changed along the way too. From a shy, curly-brown-haired girl to a confident, bodacious, blond woman, Mariah has undergone quite a few changes. To celebrate Mariah’s 42nd birthday, let’s take a little trip down memory lane. Check out these 42 pics of Mimi’s Metamorphosis and join us in wishing her a happy birthday!

Nicki Minaj, why aren’t your sweatpants covered in Chinese food and tears? Why are there no Kleenex spilling out of your pockets and/or bra? How is your nail job on point rather than coated in half-melted Peanut M&Ms? What we’re asking is, how do you look as good dressed in bumming around clothes while at the Tokyo International Airport as we do every day in our own homes? Tell us the secret! We must know! Please keep in mind our Spandex and wig budget is very, very low.
Seriously though, us wearing a pair of what we like to call “relaxation pants” is bad enough, but after a flight to Japan? Forget about it. We’d have our reading glasses on and our neck pillow firmly in place, not look ready to hit the beach for some more bikini times. Seeing as how Minaj is allegedly spending only a day in Tokyo before moving on, we don’t blame her for not putting on real clothes; clearly none of her shrieking fans mind either. No wonder Nicki just got hired as the face of Pepsi’s new beverage Pop. We’ll be sure to drink one in her honor…in our sweatpants.

Take a minute and soak in this gorgeous photo of Prometheus co-stars Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender, snapped at Wonder-Con this weekend. Just let their majestic gene pool wash over you, and then dare to dream of what it would be like if these two A-List singletons were a couple. Yes, we are currently sitting here “shipping” Charlize and Fassy (Charbender?), and with good reason.
1) They are two of the most attractive people on the planet, and staring at two attractive people never gets old.
2) They are two of the most talented people on the planet, and imagining them conquering awards season together gets our film nerd panties in a twist.
3) Charlize has a new baby and we want to see Michael Fassbender hold a baby!
4) For more LOL-filled moments like the ones we got at Wonder-Con, which included Charlize jokingly complimenting Michael on his manhood. “Your penis was a revelation,” she said about the actor’s full-frontal reveal in Shame. “I’m available to work with it any time.”
For more pics of the co-stars, check out our gallery below and be sure to watch the Prometheus trailer, which looks awesome.
Since stealing our hearts with 2004′s “She Will Be Loved,” Maroon 5 frontman and Voice judge Adam Levine has had a steady stream of hits, accompanied by a growing collection of tattoos and heart-fluttering music videos. With sometimes shirtless, always sexy performances and ultra chic red carpet style, Levine is perpetually making our heartstrings “Move Like Jagger” (sorry).
While Adam likely rings in #33 alongside his supermodel girlfriend Anne V, us common folk can gander at these 33 piping hot pics. Drool away, dear readers.
Voluptuous vixen Coco turns 33 today, and you know she has a lot to celebrate. Thanks to her — assets, she’s made quite the name for herself. The buxom blonde started as a model in her teen years. At age 18, she went on to compete in fitness competitions, even winning the Mexican title, Miss Ujena Fitness. Then she branched out into acting and made her way into some low-budget films. It was on set where she met her current husband of 10 years, Ice-T.
Given the short life of most celebrity couples their decade together is remarkable. Their secret? Taken straight from her Twitter, here’s some relationship advice in under 140 characters: “Don’t touch a black man’s Kool aide, there may be some consequences.” We’re watching E!’s Ice Loves Coco to figure out what the heck that means.
Coco loves her curvacious body, and she knows we do too! Never one to be shy in front of the camera, the starlet posed for Playboy in 2008. Using her, um, “talents,” she managed to market herself as a web-personality and has her own fashion line.
We here at theFablife hate to follow the pack, so rather than celebrating Coco’s 33 years with pics of her more obvious assets, we thought we’d take a minute to point out all the other beautiful things that we, and Ice-T, love about her.

We never in a million years thought we’d have to play Sherlock Holmes to locate Rihanna‘s booty. Just kidding, it’s what we went to college for! “It’s difficult to have any kind of routine when your schedule is that crazy. So I really have no idea how I’m continuously losing weight,” the Talk That Talk singer complained on Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS FM show this morning. “It’s actually pretty annoying. Now, I don’t have a butt, no boobs — already had no boobs — so annoying!” Now Riri, we understand that hours upon hours of air grinding under merciless stage lights every night is bound to take its toll on the body, but no butt? We have months and months of booty pics we’d like to submit as evidence to the contrary:
Exhibit A: Rihanna’s 30 Hottest Pants-free Looks
Exhibit B: Birthday Girl Rihanna’s 24 Hottest Twitpics
Exhibit C: We mean, come on! Just look with your eyes!
The defense rests! Booty Court adjourned! Okay, okay, so girl is never going to look like Nicki Minaj in a bikini, but who else in the world does? Just don’t be so hard on your behind, Rihanna. It might be small, but it is mighty. Check out the gallery below if you don’t believe us…
