First off, for those who don't know it, Evangeline Lilly was in one of our all-time favorite movies,

White Chicks. 

Though she is uncredited, the simple fact -- that she was in the film -- rules. It's a sure bet you fell in love with her the same time we did, when she appeared as Kate Austen in


. The feeling was pretty unanimous, as dudes collectively wondered why anyone would want to escape an island she was on.

This month Lilly not only appears on big screens everywhere as Tauriel in

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 

, but also on pages 116-120 of NYLON Guys. We must tell you that we saw the newest installment of

The Hobbit

, in all of its almost-three-hour long glory, and sat on the edge of our seat for most of it. Her charachter Tauriel is a serious badass, leaving the castle and chasing orcs through the woods on her own and...well, we won't ruin it for you.
