Talented, gorgeous and multidimensional, Hollywood’s newest crop of "It" Girls is anything but boring. When their immediate predecessors — Kirsten Dunst, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Selma Blair — hit the scene, they all played boho girl with the band. But the members of this freshman class, all of whom will clock major screen time this year, include some serious overachievers among their stylish ranks.



LEONOR WATLING

Channeling: Penélope Cruz

Big Break: Pedro Almodóvar’s "Talk to Her," in which she plays a comatose victim of a car accident.

Extra Credits: Over the past 10 years, the 27-year-old has made 14 films, three TV series and earned one nomination for a Goya (a Spanish Oscar) for her performance in the film "A Mi Madre Le Gustan Las Mujeres" (2002).

Roots: Mom is English, Dad was Spanish. Calls Madrid home.

Nudity Clause: Unnecessary. The uninhibited actress bared everything in the Spanish erotic thriller "Sound of the Sea" (2001). "I’m hired for my body, my voice, my emotions —it’s a whole, and I can’t break it down to ‘you can have one piece but not the other.’"

Sound Byte: "Actors don’t have to be interesting."

Up Next: Tests her bilingual skills in the Canadian flick "My Life Without Me," opposite Sarah Polley.



LINDSAY LOHAN

Channeling: Drew Barrymore

Claim to Fame: Played identical twin sisters separated at birth in "The Parent Trap" (1998).

Multitalented: Dabbles in pop rock. Inked a five-album production deal with Emilio Estefan last year, will release her single "Ultimate" on the "Freaky Friday" soundtrack.

Fashion?: Teen chic — Marc by Marc Jacobs, Paper Denim jeans, Juicy sweats and sneakers.

Roots: Mom was a Rockette; Dad was a Wall Street trader who sold the family’s pasta business for millions and now develops film projects.

Favorite Carb: Penne à la vodka.

School Ties: 11th grader on Long Island, but just switched to home school. "I’m just a normal 16-year-old. I don’t want to consider myself any different, so I don’t talk about it when I’m around my friends."
