With a successful career as an actress, writer and director, this babe packs a whole lot of talent into some very tiny dresses.

A native New Yorker, Lake was raised by what she calls a "comically dysfunctional family." After high school she attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, before transferring to Rose Bruford College in London, where she was an active part of the theatre program.

Once she returned to the states, Bell began her acting career in 2002 -- maybe you remember her from those two episodes of E.R. she was in? That's okay, we don't either. a few years later though, she was cast in 'The Practice,' followed by the spinoff, 'Boston Legal,' She's a current cast of 'Childrens Hospital,' which she has been on since 2008.

On the big screen you've most likely seen her in 'What Happens in Vegas,' 'Pride and Glory,' 'It's Complicated' 'No Strings Attached' and the 2011. 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy.' Her self-written and directed short film, 'Worst Enemy' débuted at the Sundance Film Festival, to very positive reviews. Lake is hilarious, charming, and beautiful; which is probably why girl has so much going on right now.

Also, she's what our bitter female friends like to call "like, model hot."
