Alba, ‘O.C.’ make hot list

NEW YORK (AP) – Who are the young stars of film, TV and music?

Teen People’s list of the “25 Hottest Stars Under 25” includes Alicia Keys, Ciara, Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, Jesse McCartney and Justin Timberlake.

The list is featured in the magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands Friday.

Other stars making the eighth annual installment of the list: Jessica Alba, Britney Spears, Jake Gyllenhaal, Elijah Wood, Lindsay Lohan, Natalie Portman, Destiny’s Child, rapper T.I. and the cast of Fox’s “The O.C.” – minus Benjamin McKenzie, who is 26.

Timberlake, 24, has been on the list five times since 2000. What’s keeping him hot? “Helping make Snoop Dogg’s “Signs’ a hit and his role in the film “Edison,”‘ the magazine said.

As for Lohan, star of the upcoming movie “Herbie: Fully Loaded,” Teen People said: “She’s bounced back from controversy to remain one of the hottest stars around.”

Tobey getting kinda tubby

What’s worse: tabs accusing a celeb of being a heroin addict (romantic myths about suffering for art; stint in rehab; comeback movie/CD) or of being “tubby” (New York Post) and “pudgy” (New York Daily News)? That’s the word on Spider-Man superhero Tobey Maguire, who has reportedly gained some pounds. The tabs say the “lardy leading man” (Post) was spotted in Vegas by always-trim Jessica Alba, who laughed about the “Seabiscuit” star’s “huge” vastness.
