Lowest Rated: 17% Alatriste (2006)

Birthday: Jul 17, 1975

Birthplace: Palencia, Spain

The gorgeous Elena Anaya is one of the most stunning actresses working in the world today. Born in Spain as the youngest of five children, she much preferred her extracurricular activities to high school, dropping out with the intention of attending the Real Superior School of Dramatic Art of Madrid. At the same time, she was given her first movie role in 1996's "Africa." She was admitted to the college, but was quickly expelled because her filming schedule conflicted with her studies. In 2001, she had her breakthrough role in the erotic "Lucía y el sexo," directed by Julio Medem. For her performance, she was nominated for a Goya Award, the highest acting honor in Spain. That brought her to the attention of legendary director Pedro Almodóvar, who cast her in "Talk To Her." She also crossed over into American films around this time, and she's probably still best-known for her role as Aleera, one of Dracula's wives, in the 2004 horror action flick "Van Helsing." In 2006, Justin Timberlake pegged the starlet to play the romantic interest for his "SexyBack" music video. After taking a few years to concentrate on smaller roles, she returned to work with Almodóvar in 2011's melodramatic plastic surgery horror "The Skin I Live In."
