    Even the most stage fright-afflicted have dreamed of becoming big stars (or, maybe they were nightmares?). It's no secret that becoming a household name in Hollywood is one of the toughest shoot-for-the-moon goals in the entire world. Becoming a respected household name, though? Damn near impossible.

    It's a rarified air that inflates the lungs of the A-list, and though scandal may erase certain names, others remain for life and beyond. We've observed the careers of some of today's brightest young stars, women who've ascended the ranks in a matter of years. These aren't just the Oscar winners of the world but the ladies who attract mass hysteria and major box-office points in addition to their accolades. We're not saying this guide will make you famous, but okay: That's exactly what we're saying.
