9. Jessica Biel as Allie in I'll Be Home for Christmas (1998)
Jessica Biel had been our crush since 7th Heaven, but when she played the love interest to teen heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas in I'll Be Home for Christmas, holiday movies had a new home in our heart.
A country-wide drive, thieves, and a race couldn't keep JTT's character Jake away from Allie (Biel). And, when he arrived in his Santa suit after days of travel and sweat, she still held her arms open for him in New York. Yeah, she's a keeper.
