If the name Camilla Belle doesn't mean much to you now, just wait — the 24-year-old Brazilian actress, who has been praised for her natural beauty and talent, was just declared number 98 of Maxim's "Hot 100" of 2011 list, just barely making the cut.

Belle, who dated pop sensation Joe Jonas between 2008 and 2009, joins the ranks of contemporary beauties Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansson by making the list. Though she may be just shy of household-name status, Belle has been behind the camera since she was nine months old, when she was placed in commercials. She has also starred in The Ballad of Jack and Rose with Daniel Day Lewis, 10,000 B.C. and Push with Chris Evans.
