Hopefully, you are already looking forward to the good things coming your way in 2010: A pay raise at work, good health, love, world peace and happiness – may all of your positive predictions come true.
At PEOPLE, we’ve done the same thing – only, as might be expected, with a Hollywood twist. Of all the things we hope happen to the celebrities we both love and, well, don’t always care for, these wishes for the future top our list.
And if they come true, it’s a solid sign that 2010 will be an improvement over ‘09.
