'''Mary Elizabeth Winstead''' is an American actress, born in 1984, currently best known for being Ramona in ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld''. She is rather a "scream queen", having been in ''Film/FinalDestination 3'' and the remake of ''Film/BlackChristmas2006'', as well as QuentinTarantino's ''[[GrindHouse Death Proof]]''. She got much more mainstream exposure playing BruceWillis' daughter in ''Die Hard 4.0''/''Film/LiveFreeOrDieHard'', and playing a dancer in ''Make It Happen''.

Now that JenniferConnelly is getting on a bit, Winstead is probably the best hope for a movie star GirlNextDoor type.

!!Tropes Associated with Mary Elizabeth Winstead:

* TheCastShowoff: ''Make it Happen'' is pretty much made to see how well Mary dances. Happens unintentionally in ''DeathProof'', where Tarantino wrote her character a scene where she's singing along with her mp3 player, unaware that Winstead is also a pretty decent singer.
* DeadpanSnarker: Does this in a few roles, and does it really ''well''.
* DyeHard
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer
* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Girl]]: Had a minor role in ''TheRing 2'' as a younger Evelyn.
* MsFanservice: Particularly in ''Make it Happen.'' She is also listed in the "Hottest Women" lists.

* ScreamDiscretionShot: Goes with the territory of being known as a "Scream Queen". [[SubvertedTrope Until]] ''Film/TheThing2011'', [[FinalGirl anyways.]]
