00:50 #10. Denise Richards in “Wild Things” (1998)
01:45 #9. Sissy Spacey in “Carrie” (1976)
02:54 #8. Winona Ryder in “Girl, Interrupted” (1999)
04:11 #7. Judd Nelson in “The Breakfast Club” (1985)
05:10 #6. Stacey Dash in “Clueless” (1995)
06:08 #5. Andrew Garfield in “The Amazing SpiderMan” (2012)
07:05 #4. Rachel McAdams in “Mean Girls” (2004)
07:55 #3, #2 and #1 ???

Although she didn't have a starring role, I think Stockard Channing as Rizzo at age 34 in Grease wins.

Kathleen Turner was 32 when she played
a teen in Peggy Sue Got Married. She was
older than anybody on the list.

Kathleen Turner was also a bit young to be playing a woman who was going to her 25 year high school reunion. Since she went back in time and the story would not have had the same emotional impact if the part was played by two actresses, they basically split the difference.

Turner began to suffer from rheumatoid arthritis in her late 30's after which she never could play that role.

She should still be at the top
of the list. I watched it again
tonight. My god, do you
remember the cast? How
many later stars are in this
movie, besides Jim Carrey
and Nicolas Cage.
