Queer Quotient: The actress we first met in Mean Girls played a prostitute obsessed with Julianne Moore in Chloe. She also shared a kiss with Megan Fox in Jennifer’s Body.

Nominated for: Best Picture, Les Miserables
Queer Quotient: Before filming Les Mis together, Samantha (Eponine) sang “Take Me Or Leave Me,” the lesbian duet from RENT, with co-star Anne Hathaway in an attempt to bond on set. Samantha said it made them feel so much more comfortable with each other. There’s also the fact she dresses in drag in the film, binding her boobs and all.

Nominated for: Best Picture, Django Unchained
Queer Quotient: Kerry played a lesbian business woman with babies on the brain in She Hate Me and says she dreams of playing Dusty Springfield‘s lover if Kristin Chenoweth plays the bisexual leading role. We’re still hoping for someone to finance that film.
