Esquire says Biel is an “underground icon to the generation of men who are coming of age now.” Esquire’s editor in chief says Biel is “talented and about to burst onto the scene.” She’s in the movie “Elizabethtown” that comes out October 14.

The magazine also picked the hottest women of their generation. Gong Li represents the 30-somethings, Sharon Stone the 40-somethings and Rene Russo the 50-somethings.
