Following last year’s tradition of naming our top POP Babes for the year, this year the POPCulture Online team sat down to think hard who the top 5 is for 2012. It was definitely a tough one as everyone had their own ideas and reasons with quite a bit of debates.
After a long discussion, the team finally came to a conclusion and we present to you our top 5 babes for 2012:
5. Rosamund Pike
Coming in at number 5 is the 33 year old from London, Rosamund Pike. Having not only acted in movies like the recent Jack Reacher opposite Tom Cruise and the fantasy movie Wrath of the Titans, Rosamund Pike has also performed on many stage productions such as Hedda Gabler.
Rosamund Pike makes it to number 5, edging out the rest thanks to her versatile skills both on the silver screen and on stage. Plus the team was totally strucked by her performance as she showed both her soft side as a love interest of Persesus and yet her tough side as Queen Andromeda.
4. Kate Beckinsale
The number 4 spot belongs to the 39 year old Kate Beckinsale who definitely doesn’t look one bit her age. Known mostly for her roles in action movies such as the Underworld series and the recent Total Recall, the once named “England’s Number One Beauty” by HELLO! Daily News website has always been wowing with her stunning good looks.
Kate Beckinsale makes it to number 4 because somehow she always adds that touch of class yet looking good at the same time even though she has to get all rough and dirty in her various action roles. And if that doesn’t convince you, looking extremely hot in her Underworld outfit should do the trick.
3. Anne Hathaway
American actress Anne Hathaway is our number 3 for 2012 who has gone from the little princess in The Princess Diaries series of movies to the mysteriously beautiful Catwoman in the recent Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. Not just an actress, Anne is also an accomplished dancer who studied at the Broadway Dance Center in New York City which definitely score points in our books.
Anne Hathaway takes the 3rd spot for not only her versatile roles when it comes to movie roles but also cos she has a good heart too, lending a hand to many philanthropic initiatives around the world. From Step Up Women’s Network to travelling to Cambodia on behalf of the documentary, “A Moment in the World,” organized by Angelina Jolie, there is nothing more attractive than a lady who good looks and a good heart.
2. Cobie Smulders
It is without displute among the team that the number 2 spot belongs to Canadian actress and former model Cobie Smulders. Most will remember her for her role as Robin Scherbatsky in the CBS TV series How I Met Your Mother and non fans of the series will remember her as Agent Maria Hill in Marvel’s The Avengers movie and also in the next Captain America movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Cobie Smulders claims the number 2 spot without much fight due to the fact she gave Scarlett Johansson who plays Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow in Marvel’s The Avengers a good run for her money in terms of eye candy. In fact at least one of POPCulture Online’s Co-Founder has boldy declared that since Agent Hill > Black Widow, there is no longer any more debate and the case is close.
1. Katy Perry
Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson or better known by her stage name as Katy Perry is POPCulture Online’s Babe of 2012. The first woman in music history to produce five Number One singles off of one album, Katy Perry has scaled the heights of pop music stardom few have reached before her. The Singer also recently released her Katy Perry: Part of Me movie where she invited two young filmmakers to tag along (and “catch everything on film—nothing off-limits”) as she circled the globe on her record-breaking California Dreams Tour.
Katy Perry takes the top spot with a landslide victory of votes thanks to her brillant voice, good looks and an attitude that would make most guys go crazy. Add to the fact that the California Girl has been voted No. 1 in 2012 Maxim Hot 100 and has been featured multiple times on magazines like FHM as well, it was really a no brainer why she takes the top spot.
