Sure she’s an alum of MTV’s The Real World (and its spin-off, Real World/Road Rules Challenge), but don’t expect Jamie Chung to flip tables, pull hair or get into an expletive-filled shouting match any time soon. The well-spoken, college-educated 29-year-old stands apart from her reality-show contemporaries in many ways, thanks in part to her flourishing acting career. Though she says her reality-TV past initially hindered her success, Chung has since scored roles in films such as Grown Ups, Sucker Punch, The Hangover Part II and next month’s The Man with the Iron Fists. Having already worked alongside some of Hollywood’s favorite hunks, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt (in Premium Rush), Bradley Cooper (in The Hangover Part II) and Eric Dane (on Grey’s Anatomy), we asked the up-and-comer whom she’d most like to cozy up to next on the big screen.

Ryan Gosling
“I think the most obvious answer to that would be Ryan Gosling, because he’s absolutely dreamy and talented.”

Philip Seymour Hoffman
“He’s quite a different option, but I think Philip Seymour Hoffman is one of the finest actors of our generation, and he can be so funny. I think it would be so unconventional to see the two of us together, which would make it awesome.”

James McAvoy
“That accent gets me every time. It’s unfortunate he’s married!”
