Kristen and Ashley on AskMen.com's Top 99 Women of 2010

Kristen comes in at #21 (Ooh, my lucky number ;]) while Ashley ranks at #41 on AskMen.com's Top 99 Women of 2010.

Check out AskMen.com's facts and reasons why these two made it on their list!

Kristin Stewart No. 21
• plays the guitar and is rumored to be singing on the soundtrack for The Runaways
• once told Vanity Fair that she didn't want to be a "professional liar for the rest of [her] life"
• plans to attend university to study literature
• wore brown contacts over her naturally green eyes to play brown-eyed girl Bella Swan in the Twilight saga
• hung out with the real Joan Jett in preparation for her role in the biopic The Runaways

Why She's No. 21
Kristen Stewart is an industry vet, and she’s not even 20 years old. The actress was playing Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room when kids her age were getting their first paper routes. But unlike Haley Joel Osment, Stewart has made the transition from child star to adult actress look relatively easy, namely thanks to her high-profile role as Bella Swan in the big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight.

When the film hit theaters in November 2008, she and costar Robert Pattinson experienced the same kind of unnerving immediate rise to fame that Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet experienced post-Titanic. Posters of Stewart suddenly became makeshift wallpaper inside locker doors in high schools across America, or they substituted as dartboards for all those females who were envious of her onscreen and rumored off-screen time with Pattinson, much to Stewart’s dismay. “I don’t want to be a movie star like Angelina Jolie,” Stewart told BlackBook magazine. “Nothing about being a celebrity is desirable. I’m an actor. It’s bizarre to me that everybody’s so obsessive.”

With New Moon, the sequel to Twilight, proving to be one of the most successful movies (financially speaking) of all time, Stewart has the spotlight, whether she likes it or not, especially with the third and final installment, Eclipse, coming out in 2010 and her recent BAFTA nomination for Rising Actress for her New Moon role. If catching a vampire flick with a swarm of insanely hormonal girls isn’t your idea of a great Friday night, check out Stewart playing Joan Jett in the upcoming 2010 biopic The Runaways, opposite Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie.

Ashley Greene No. 41
• finished high school early so she could move to L.A. to act
• got her first major break when she landed the part of Alice Cullen in Twilight
• returned to her role as Alice Cullen in the Twilight sequels New Moon and the upcoming Eclipse
• stars in the 2010 thriller The Apparition
• originally planned to be a model but, at 5'4", was told she was too short

Why She's No. 41
She grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, but upon deciding to become an actress, she buckled down, finished school early at the age of 17 and booked it west to Hollywood. Although she started her acting career with bit parts on shows like Punk’d and Crossing Jordan, it wasn’t long until Ashley won the part of Alice Cullen in the Twilight franchise, based on Stephenie Meyer’s novels.

Reprising her role in both New Moon and the upcoming Eclipse, Ashley Greene makes for at least one good reason to sit through the vampire flicks with your Robert Pattinson-obsessed girlfriend, because you deserve some eye candy too. Also, look for her in 2010’s The Apparition, about a couple haunted by a supernatural being. We promise there are no vampires involved. And if your lustful fantasies aren't fulfilled there, check out her ad campaign for SoBe Lifewater -- we promise you won't be disappointed.
