How you know her: The Spanish actress returns as cop Elena Neves in Fast & Furious 6, out May 24. And she's Mrs. Thor: She wed Chris Hemsworth in 2010; their daughter India Rose turns 1 next month.

Her tomboy past: "I was never really excited about makeup. I was excited about high heels, though, because I was tiny," says the 5'3" star. "I would steal them from my mom!"

Her favorite compliment from her husband: "He says I'm always smiling. That's what he likes the most."
