Kate Upton, No. 8 on Maxim's Hot 100
Known for her coveted “Sports Illustrated” cover in 2013 and past spreads in the SI Swimsuit issues going back to 2011, Kate Upton is a young up-and-comer to Maxim's Hot 100 List. Sure, she oozes sex appeal, but she's worked hard for those curves! Remember her caloric-filled Carl's Jr. ad? Plus, she’s funny, based on some of the You Tube videos out there of this down-to-earth gal. Kate will have a chance to show off more of her comedy chops in the movie “The Other Woman” in 2014, alongside funny ladies Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz.

Mila Kunis, No. 4 on Maxim's Hot 100
After starring in such diverse hit movies like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Black Swan,” and the recent “Oz the Great And Powerful,” it’s clear Mila Kunis is just heating up. She's come a long way from playing shallow and bratty Jackie on TV’s “That '70s Show,” but managed to snag her former costar Ashton Kutcher as a real life leading man.

Jennifer Lawrence, No. 5 on Maxim's Hot 100
With recent box office mega-hits like the “Hunger Games” and her Oscar-winning role in “Silver Linings Playbook,” Jennifer Lawrence’s name (and career) is as good as gold in Hollywood. The unapologetically curvaceous Lawrence claims that she refuses to diet or drop weight to meet Hollywood’s standards. Brava, Jennifer! If only there were more like her.

Megan Fox, No. 20 on Maxim's Hot 100
There's not a lot to say about Megan Fox except that she's always had a lot to work with, by the looks of it! While she's dropped from #2 to #20 since 2009 on the Maxim Hot 100 List, Fox (a new mom) is forever immortalized in “Transformers” as the hottest high schooler to ever fall for actor Shia LeBeouf.
