Battle of the Hot Kristens & Kristins: Who Had the Best Year Ever? (POLL)
One of our most popular Hot Name Battles this year was that of Hollywood’s hottest Kristens and Kristins. From actresses Kristen Stewart, Kristen Wiig and Kristen Bell to reality television personality Kristin Cavallari and actress Kristin Davis (who both like to spice up the spelling of this popular name), our battle attracted an overwhelming number of votes from their biggest fans.
It seems as though all of our hottest Kriste/ins have had a crazy, busy year, which brings us to our follow-up question: Which of these Kristens and Kristins had the best year ever? Cast your vote in our poll!
If you need a little reminder of each of their 2011 accomplishments, here’s a review:
Best known for playing Bella Swan in the popular Twilight movie saga, Kristen Stewart both wrapped filming of the the final two installments of the film and premiered the first installment titled The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 in November. She stars in the indie film On the Road and took on the lead role in Snow White and the Huntsman (due out in 2012) alongside Chris Hemsworth. Perhaps one of her biggest moments of the year came with her confirmation of the ongoing rumor that she was dating co-star Robert Pattinson. It’s about time!
As one of the hottest and funniest Saturday Night Live cast members in recent years, 2011 saw Kristen Wiig rise to the spotlight. She not only gave stellar SNL performances of the public’s favorite characters, but she also premiered her first feature film Bridesmaids — a movie that she helped pen herself! It was arguably the best comedy of the year and it helped put her name up there with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as one of the most successful female comedians in the game. She has also wrapped filming on her next film Imogene which will be released in 2012 and also stars Glee hunk Darren Criss.
The always lovely Kristen Bell kicked off 2011 with a role in the much anticipated return of the Scream horror film series. She has spent much of the year filming not one, not two or even three, but four films due out next year: Dance of the Mirlitons, Movie 43, Big Miracle and House of Lies. She also continues to be the voice behind the popular television series Gossip Girl. She does continuous work with PETA and is the face of Neutrogena, and if that wasn’t enough, she’s engaged to funnyman Dax Shepard.
After her notable appearances in MTV’s popular reality series Laguna Beach and The Hills, Kristin Cavallari continued her acting chops on a 2011 episode of The Middle. She was also a participant on season 13 of the Dancing with the Stars reality competition with partner Mark Ballas. Cavallari continues to support PETA and do charity work for the non-profit organization One Kid, One World. Her biggest headlines of the year, however, came from her on-again-off-again relationship with Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The two called off their engagement during the summer, but reunited in November.
Kristin Davis won us over with her fabulous fashion sense in the role of Charlotte in Sex and the City, and though it’s been a couple of years since the last SATC film, she continues to be in the spotlight. Davis has already filmed Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, a 3D action-adventure film that also stars Josh Hutcherson and Vanessa Hudgens, which is due out next year. Davis won the Humane Society’s 2011 Wyler Award for her work with animals. Her biggest 2011 headlines, however, came with the news of her adoption of daughter Gemma Rose.
