With wins in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary, Mitt Romney has a leg up in the race for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

If he won the right to face our first African-American President, Barack Obama, Romney would become the first Mormon on a major party ticket.

While this is hardly an endorsement of Romney, good for him, and for voters embracing candidates of varying religions, backgrounds and ethnicity.

In honor of Mitt, here are a bunch of celebrity Mormons you might not know about! Who's your favorite? Read THG's Top 10 and vote in our poll:

Mitt Romney for President

10. Mitt Romney. He'll never be accused of being electrifying on the campaign trail, but he wins. And least so far. Plus, he's got the hair.

9. Jon Huntsman. Another family man and GOP presidential candidate who embraces his Mormon beliefs. Doing not quite as well in the polls.

8. Amy Adams of Enchanted fame was raised Mormon. Who knew!

7. Marie Osmond and her siblings grew up in a strict Mormon home.

6. Aaron Eckhart of The Dark Knight fame was raised Mormon. Eckhart even transferred to BYU and graduated from the Mormon University in '94.

  • Julianne Hough Red Carpet Pic

5. (tie) Paul Walker. That's one fast, furious, handsome Mormon! And Jon Heder. Napoleon Dynamite quotes. Enough said on both accounts.

4. Katherine Heigl. While no longer a practicing Mormon, the former Grey's Anatomy star credits her LDS upbringing with shaping her character.

3. Lacey Schwimmer. DWTS pro and Mormon (as are our co-#1s).

2. David Archuleta. The American Idol runner-up recently announced he's stepping out of the limelight to embark on a two-year Mormon mission.

1. Julianne and Derek Hough. The Footloose star and DWTS pro siblings pretty much hit the genetic jackpot with looks, charm and physical abilities.

Take a look at our Top 10 and vote for your favorite below!

10. Katherine Heigl. We used to love her on Grey's Anatomy. Since leaving that show on bad terms, she's gone on to ... what has she been in lately? Hmm.

9. Kate Upton. Victoria's Secret model / teenage Mark Sanchez girlfriend.

8. Kate Moss. Older, more famous, significantly lighter model.

7. Kate Gosselin. Groan. No introduction necessary.

6. Kate Beckinsale. Underworld Awakening badass!

  • Beckinsale

5. Kate Hudson. A fun-loving free-spirited star with talent to boot. What's not to love about Hudson, her famous folks, her rocker fiance, and sons Ryder and Bing.

4. Katy Perry. Fun fact - born Katheryn Hudson, the newly-single singer chose the stage name Katy Perry so as not to be confused with ... Kate Hudson!

3. Katharine McPhee. Major THG crush for a few years after her run on American Idol, now starring on the buzzed-about new show Smash on NBC!

2. Kate Winslet. One of the more talented and classy actresses around, and what can we say, we totally in the tank for the British. Which brings us to ...

1. Kate Middleton. She's royalty. In real life and here.

Who's your favorite Kate?

Katherine Heigl loves animals, but she hates balls.

So she tells us in this new Funny or Die video, which serves the dual purpose of promoting animal neutering and proclaiming her distaste for those freaking things.

This three-minute rant is just the beginning. There's also an official site - ihateballs (dot) com - and an official hashtag, #IHateBalls. The message is fairly clear.

The former Grey's Anatomy star and Maxim Hot 100 member flat-out despises testicles on all male life forms. It's a consistent view she takes very, very seriously.

Seriously. You do not want to let her near yours ...

Best known as Blair on Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester also appears in Country Strong (check out star Gwyneth Paltrow's CMA Awards performance from last night).

Was her fashion sense strong enough to take on Katherine Heigl's, though? That's for you to say. With Katie's sapphire Farah Angsana gown, it could be tough.

Leighton certainly holds her own in a trailing, draped Emilio Pucci gown, Cathy Waterman jewelry and Jimmy Choo sandals, but whose dress do you prefer?

Katherine Heigl vs. Jessica Simpson. It's a battle of the bags ... and celebrities with considerable baggage, as well. One's mouthy and the other clingy. Just saying.

Both are drop-dead gorgeous and have great style, though. Recently, each blonde showed off a functional tote bag a wild twist - bold leopard prints. Rawwr!

Britney Spears, Plaid Shirt

Katherine Heigl is a lightning rod for controversy and you'll find a lot of people that dislike the 31-year-old movie star. Just ask Katherine Heigl herself.

Honestly has never been her problem. On the contrary, the former Grey's Anatomy actress' brash assessment of people and projects has alienated fans.

"It's something I've spent a lot of the past year really thinking about, really trying to figure out," she said of this image problem of her own making.

Katherine Heigl is hot ... and a little hot-headed.

The sexist nature of Knocked Up. The bad writing on Grey's. She calls it like she sees it, and has watched her popularity decline as a result of her rare candor.

Rather than hail her as a refreshing antidote to bland PR-trained celebrities, the public has dismissed her as a pouty, ungrateful diva. Why? It's all in the tone.

Now starring in Life As We Know It with Josh Duhamel, Heigl says from now on, she's aiming to be more careful about the things she says - in public, at least.

Katherine Heigl made the right move quitting Grey's Anatomy.

Quitting smoking may be an even better career move, though.

Katherine Heigl, Family

The star is trying to rid herself of a nasty habit in a hi-tech way: "I use an electronic cigarette," she tells Parade. "I know it's ridiculous, but it's helping me."

Katherine Heigl is such a quitter ... in a good way this time.

Says the Life as We Know It star: "You feel like you're smoking, and you get to exhale but it's just water vapor, not nicotine. I've been doing it for six months."

"Smoking sucks!" adds the mother of 22-month old Naleigh. "The one thing I'd say to my kid is, 'It's not just that it's bad for you, but do you want to spend your life fighting an addiction to a thing that doesn't even give you a good buzz?'"

It's a valid argument.

Katherine Heigl quitting the hit show Grey's Anatomy to star in films such as The Ugly Truth, Killers and Life As We Know It? A questionable decision at best.

A much more sound call was bringing back the blonde hair. After going brunette earlier this year, Heigl returns to her signature color and light blonde bob.

Katherine Heigl is hot. This has not changed.

Her recent hairstyle may be almost as bad as her attitude, however. Yeesh. Check out this sky high bouffant she wore to the London premiere of Killers this week.

To be fair, it's not all Katie's fault. The star ditched her signature blonde locks to play the main character in the film adaptation of the novel One for the Money.

It took some getting used to - for her as well.

I was pretty shocked at first... I was like, 'wow, it's dark, that's not just brown, that's black.' It took me a good day and a half to totally embrace it," she said.

Do you embrace it, though? Vote below ...
