IMDb names the top ten stars of 2012, as well as the top emerging stars, as determined by total page views on the popular movie database. "The Dark Knight Rises" stars Tom Hardy (#1), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (#4) and Christian Bale (#5) scored high in the top ten, pushing Johnny Depp to his lowest-ranking ever (#7). Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, who were #1 and #2 last year, are off the list completely. What a difference a year makes. Jennifer Lawrence is at #2, while her "Hunger Games" co-star Josh Hutcherson is #9 and Liam Hemsworth is #1 on the Emerging Stars list. So long "Twilight" stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson; they are only #10 and #33, respectively, with their vampire days behind them. Rounding out the top ten is Chris Hemsworth, Channing Tatum and Emma Stone. Best movie of the year? "The Dark Knight Rises" is #1 and "The Avengers" is #2, according to IMDb users--a majority of whom we presume to be men. »
