They may be shining brightly now but how many of Hollywood's hottest young stars will be able to survive the test of time in an industry known for being as cutthroat as politics? Enjoying a life-long career in Tinseltown takes a special mix of talent, hard work and a whole lot of luck and even then nothing is guaranteed. Click through the gallery to see which young stars have the best chance of long-term success and who could very well be begging for work in five years.

Carey Mulligan, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Ellen Page, Andrew Garfield are some of the most talented actors around. Not so sure whether Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively will stand the test of time. Lindsay Lohan had her shot and she blew it.

I don't believe Kristen Steward should stay.  Her acting is the same in all the movies, and besides, she's no roll model.  She's betrayed Rob and once a cheater, always a cheater

The people made this list actually think Kristen Stewart is going to be around for awhile? This girl has limited acting range and people are going to catch on it sooner than they think-unless she screws another director or hooks up with another actor to stay relevant. Also, why is Lindsey Lohan even on this list? She is already washed up and gone and needs to stay buried.

I like LiLo but yes, she should look for another career choice, maybe as an adult film star?  Just a thought...

Why is Lindsay Lohan even on this list? the first line is right, she is already gone! She had her chance, she was a very good actress but then totally blew it. So disappointed,she really had potential.

ellen page is cool.  didn't know she was canadian.  vanessa hudgins does have the charm to compete on the romantic comedy front too.  i saw her in some rock and roll movie that was a rom com and she did fine.  also lindsay lohan still has potential.  also.  this list didn't mention a lot of names

Mila Kunis played some varied roles in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "Max Payne", it's a wait and see with her...  Jennifer Lawrence  and Emma Stone will be interesting to watch.  I'm not sure I want to continue to watch the train wreck of Lohan

I disagree, Zac Efron should go, like really.  What has he done?  Nothing noteworthy.

Lindsay keeps attracting attention to herself with the drugs and thee shop lifting and bouncing back and forth between jail and house-arrest. If she feels she's getting knocked out of Hollywood, she'll start some forest fire on the rest of her life

Taylor Lautner is beautiful and talented.   He's only 20 and I don't understand all the JEALOUSY....aimed at someone so young............He has already proven himself......and it paid off.
Instead of trying to tear down up and coming actors............they should be given encouragement.
My money is on Mr. Lautner long term.........because he's smart enough and humble enough to appreciate the ride, but won't take it too seriously.

Miley Cyrus needs a sex tape, then maybe she'll get the publicity she so desperately needs to last as an adult actor in Hollywood.
