Aubrey Plaza may not have a huge role in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but you sure will remember her. The half-Puerto Rican comedian, who has cornered the market on playing sarcastic outcasts in movies like Funny People and NBC’s comedy Parks & Recreation, steals scene after scene as a chick who shows up solely to curse out the lovelorn Scott.

Javier Bardem may have won his Oscar for playing a terrifying bad guy with corny clothes and the unsexiest haircut ever in No Country for Old Men, but for pretty much the rest of his career, Bardem has been the personification of sex onscreen.

Case in point: Super sexy chica Eva Mendes has been paired with a fair share of dudes that she would probably never look at twice in real life. In The Other Guys, she plays the loving and devoted wife of frizzy-haired underachiever Will Ferrell. But who knows?
