                                                               MONICA BELLUCCI 


Date of Birth: September 30, 1964

Born in the Italian town of Citta di Castello, Monica Bellucci idolized screen icons such as Sophia Loren and Gina Lolabrigida while she was growing up. Although she originally studied law, a friend persuaded her to try modeling in order to earn some extra money for school. However, Bellucci began to land so many modeling jobs that she had to drop out of college,especially when she was chosen by director Dino Risi to appear in his TV movie Vita Coi Figli (1990) after seeing her photo in a magazine. She appeared in two more Italian productions before coming to the attention of American director Francis Ford Coppola, who cast her in Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992). Although the movie was filmed in the States, she soon returned to Italy to appear in numerous films in her native land.

In 1996, Bellucci won international acclaim when she appeared in the French film, L'Appartement(1996), receiving a Caesar nomination (the French equivalent of the Academy Awards) for her performance. She fell in love with her co-star, French actor Vincent Cassel, and the two were not only married in 1999 but have co-starred in several more films since. For the next few years, she did mostly French productions, but took time out to make an English language film—the France/US co-production Under Suspicion (2000), starring Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman.

In Tears of the Sun (2003), Bellucci landed her first starring role in a major Hollywood motion picture, playing a doctor in a foreign land who refuses to leave the people she is treating when a Navy lieutenant (Bruce Willis) comes to the rescue. She next played a leading role opposite Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne in the dual sequels The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003). In Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ (2004) she played the role of Mary Magdalene. More recent credits include The Private Lives of Pippa Lee (2009) directed by Rebecca Miller and The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010), starring alongside Nicolas Cage.

She and her husband have a daughter, Deva Cassel, born September 2004 in Rome, Italy.

scarlett johansson

Actress and singer Scarlett Johansson is the daughter of a Danish architect and the granddaughter of a film director. Her first noted appearance was in The Horse Whisperer, followed by a major role in Lost in Translation (2003). Her first album Anywhere I Lay My Head was released in 2008, the same year she married actor Ryan Reynolds.
Born on November 22, 1984, in New York City. Her family has a long history of participating in the arts; her Danish grandfather worked as a screenwriter and director, and her mother as a producer.

Johansson's interest in acting surfaced at an early age. At the age of 8, she appeared in an off-Broadway production of Sophistry with Ethan Hawke. Johansson continued to seek out roles, and decided to study at Manhattan's Professional Children's School (PCS), a private educational institution known for such famous acting alumni as Carrie Fisher, Rita Moreno and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Musical theater was one of Johansson's passions, which she pursued at PCS. "I was one of those jazz-hands kids," she told Vogue.

During her school years, Johansson landed some acting roles, including her film debut in 1994's North with Elijah Wood. Her first leading part came two years later with Manny & Lo, an independent dramatic comedy. Johansson played the younger sister of a pregnant teenager, both of whom were in foster care. Johansson's twin brother, Hunter, also made an appearance in the film. Johansson attracted even more critical attention with 1998's The Horse Whisperer starring Robert Redford and Kristin Scott Thomas. Her portrayal of a young amputee won over many fans, including the film's star and director, Redford. Redford commented on Johansson's remarkable maturity, saying that she was "13 going on 30."
Career Breakthough

After graduating PCS in 2002, Johansson soon found herself as one of Hollywood's top up-and-coming actresses. She had two starring roles in 2003, both of which garnered her critical accolades. In Lost in Translation, she played a woman visiting Tokyo who forms an unlikely relationship with a much older man (played by Bill Murray). Johansson also gave an impressive performance as a servant girl who is painted by famed artist Johannes Vermeer (played by Colin Firth) in Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Johansson took on a variety of projects after these early successes. She worked with director Brian De Palma on the 2006 crime thriller The Black Dahlia, and tried her hand at comedy with 2007's The Nanny Diaries. A frequent collaborator with director Woody Allen, Johansson has appeared in several
of his films, including 2008's Vicky Cristina Barcelona. She played an American girl on vacation in Spain with a friend. The pair become involved with an artist (Javier Bardem) and his ex-wife (Penelope Cruz).
Continued Success

Around this time, Johansson branched out into new territory when she joined forces with Pete Yorn for an album of duets, which were recorded in 2007. The pair finally released their collaborative efforts in 2009 with the album Break Up, and Johansson wrote several tracks for the recording. "I've been singing for my whole life. When I was a kid I wanted to be on Broadway," she told New York magazine. In 2008, Johansson released her first album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, which featured cover versions of songs by Tom Waits. The recording proved to be a critical and commercial disappointment.

Johansson soon took on a new career challenge. In 2009, she made her Broadway debut in a revival of Arthur Miller's drama A View from the Bridge opposite Liev Schrieber. Johansson earned positive reviews for her convincing performance as Catherine, a teenage girl who is raised by her aunt and uncle. For her work on the show, Johansson won a Tony Award.

Turning to lighter fare, Johansson played the villainess Black Widow in Iron Man 2 (2010) opposite Robert Downey, Jr. and Mickey Rourke. The action flick became one of the summer's big blockbusters.

While her personal life was grabbing headlines, Johansson starred in a number of films. She finished filming Cameron Crowe's dramatic comedy We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon, in 2011. Reportedly reprising her role as the Black Widow, Johansson also began work on The Avengers, which features several superheroes and villains from Marvel Comics.
Personal Life

Johansson married Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds in September 2008, in a small ceremony in British Columbia, Canada. The couple purchased a home together in Los Angeles, but filed for divorce two years later in December 2010.

Since her split from Reynolds, Johansson was romantically linked to actor Sean Penn. The pair traveled to Mexico together and attended actress Reese Witherspoon's wedding in March 2011.

In September 2011, Johansson found herself at the center of a scandal when nude photos taken on her cell phone were posted online by hackers. The FBI initiated an investigation to find the individuals behind the leak, which has targeted Johansson along with several other young stars.

catherine zeta jones

Born: September 25, 1969

Both exotic and classic, Wales-born actress Catherine Zeta-Jones began acting as a child. By ten she was part of the Catholic congregation's performing troupe, and by 18 she was performing professionally in the West End. It was in there that she caught the eye of French director Philippe de Broca, who offered her the lead in his film Les 1001 Nuits in 1989. After traveling to France to film the movie, she returned to Britain, where she landed a starring role in the Yorkshire Television comedy drama series The Darling Buds of May, based on a series of novels by H.E. Bates. The show was a huge hit, and made Zeta-Jones one of the U.K.'s most popular TV actresses. After the series ended in 1993, she steadily found work playing lead roles in TV movies and miniseries such as Catherine the Great and The_Cinder_Path. She also played supporting roles small films, including Christopher_Columbus:_The_Discovery and Splitting_Heirs.

The big screen role that undoubtedly put Zeta-Jones on the map, however, came in 1998 when she was cast opposite Anthony_Hopkins and Antonio_Banderas in 1998's The Mask of Zorro. America was enchanted by the dark-haired actress' charisma and beauty, and she began to be offered better and better roles in American film. She starred in films like Entrapment, The_Haunting, and High_Fidelity, before taking the prominent role of a white-collar drug kingpin's wife in 2000, in Steven_Soderbergh's treatise on the drug war, Traffic. Her performance was impressive to critics and audiences, many of whom felt that she deserved an Oscar nomination.

The actress had no time to quibble over awards, however, as she married actor Michael_Douglas in November that year, and gave birth to their son Dylan Michael nine months later. Zeta-Jones' took it easy during the next year, appearing only in the romantic comedy America's_Sweethearts, but her next project would be the one to cement her as Hollywood royalty: a starring role in the Broadway adaptation Chicago. Few fans were aware of the singing and dancing skills that she'd honed on the musical stage at the beginning of her career, much less that she had sometimes performed with the English_National_Opera. Her performance blew audiences away, and won her the 2002 Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. Zeta-Jones lightened things up in 2003, making audiences laugh alongside George_Clooney in the Cohen Brothers' movie Intolerable_Cruelty, then as an airport employee who falls for stranded immigrant Tom_Hanks in The_Terminal (2004).

The actress' screen time, however, began to diminish at about that point, given her decision to shift priorities and hone in on raising a family with Douglas; her film appearances grew decidedly less frequent, and she thus found time to give birth to a baby girl named Carys Zeta Douglas in April of 2003. On the side, however, she continued to appear in occasional commercials, and the paparazzi often published candid photos of the actress in public, baby-in-arms, which held her in the limelight. The motion pictures in which Zeta-Jones appeared during this period took fewer chances by banking off of recent successes (gone, at least temporarily, were the challenges of such films as Chicago and Traffic). Efforts during this period included the blockbuster sequel Ocean's_Twelve (with Clooney, 2004), the onscreen reunion with Antonio_Banderas The Legend of Zorro and even the musical concert film Tony Bennett: An American Classic, which reunited Zeta-Jones and Chicago wunderkind Rob Marshall.

Zeta-Jones then essayed a trio of roles in 2007. She first teamed with Shine director Scott_Hicks for an Americanized remake of the German-language comedy Mostly_Martha. Retitled No Reservations and issued in July of 2007, the picture casts Zeta-Jones as Kate Armstrong a chef suddenly appointed guardian her niece Zoe (Abigail Breslin). Kate's blossoming romance with another culinary maestro (Aaron Eckhart) puts the guardianship into much needed perspective. Zeta-Jones then starred in Australian director Gillian Armstrong's period piece Death Defying Acts -- a cinematization of Harry Houdini's 1926 tour of Britain, co-starring Timothy Spall and Guy Pearce, and scripted by Brian Ward and Tony Grisoni. The Weinstein company slated that picture for release in mid- to late 2007. Cammila Albertson,

rachel bilson

Rachel Sarah Bilson (born August 25, 1981) is an American actress. After growing up in a California show business family, she made her television debut in 2003 and subsequently became well-known for playing Summer Roberts on the prime time dramedy series The O.C. Bilson made her film debut in the 2006 film The Last Kiss, appeared as "Lou" on the NBC show Chuck, and will star in the 2008 thriller Jumper.

Early life

Bilson was born in LA, California to a Jewish American father, writer/director/producer Danny Bilson, and a Philadelphia-born Italian American mother, sex therapist Janice Stango. Her father comes from a show business family; her great-grandfather, George Bilson, was the head of the trailer department at RKO Pictures, while her Brooklyn-born great-grandmother, Hattie Bilson, was a screenwriter and her grandfather, Bruce Bilson, is a film director. Bilson's parents divorced during her childhood, and in 1997, her father remarried Heather Medway, an actress and the mother of Bilson's half-sister Hattie (born December 19, 2001).

Bilson has been noted as having a "self-destructive, rebellious period" during her teen years. When she was thirteen, she and a group of her brother's friends were involved in a car accident, a head-on collision with another car. As a result, Bilson was unconscious for a few days, had a scar above her right eye, and sometimes suffers from migraines and memory loss; she has stated that the experience "changed" her, encouraging her to "stop... getting into trouble" and stopping her from "going down that road".

Bilson graduated from Walter Reed Middle School in 1996 and from Notre Dame High School in 1999. During her time at Notre Dame, she appeared in productions of Bye Bye Birdie, Once Upon a Mattress and The Crucible, and appeared on stage together with Katharine McPhee, who attended the same school and would later be a finalist on American Idol.


Bilson attended Grossmont College in San Diego, but dropped out after one year, taking her father's advice to pursue a professional acting career and making several appearances in commercials, including advertisements for Raisin Bran and Pepto-Bismol. She made her screen acting debut in early 2003, appearing in episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, and in the short film, Unbroken. Bilson was subsequently cast in The O.C., which debuted in August of 2003. Her character, Summer Roberts, was initially intended to appear in only a few episodes, but became a series regular after a successful run, as Bilson's on-screen romance with Seth Cohen (Adam Brody) became a noted aspect of the series.

As a result of the success of The O.C., Bilson has become well-known among teenage audiences. At the 2005 Teen Choice Awards, Bilson collected three awards - "Choice Hottie Female", "Choice TV Actress (Drama)" and "Best Onscreen TV Chemistry" (jointly won with Adam Brody). In 2005, Maxim magazine named her sixth in their annual "Hot 100 List"; in 2006, the publication awarded her #14. The UK edition of FHM Magazine named her 28th in the 2006 100 Sexiest Women in the World list, while the US Edition Ranked her 77th in 2005. Bilson was also named one of the "50 Most Beautiful People" in 2006 People magazine.

Bilson's first film role was in The Last Kiss, a romantic comedy/drama also starring Zach Braff and Jacinda Barrett. In the film, which opened on September 15, 2006, Bilson plays a college student who seduces Braff's character. Bilson had long wanted to work with Braff, having admired the film Garden State, which he directed and starred in. A body double was used for the film's sexual scene between Bilson and Braff's characters, as Bilson specified that she "feel[s] really strong[ly]" about not appearing in a nude scene. One review of the film noted that Bilson played the role with "surprising depth", although another critic described her role as "Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction as an airhead valley girl with a hot bod".

Bilson has stated that she prefers acting in feature films to appearing on television, and that she would like the kind of roles "that Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson are offered". She has specified that though she is "grateful" for the success of The O.C., she feels that the show "is over" and that she is "ready to move on" to film roles. In September of 2006, unconfirmed reports surfaced that Bilson was linked to star in a film version of the comic book character Wonder Woman; Bilson has stated that these reports were untrue. These reports spawned solely from a Wonder Woman costume she wore in an episode of The O.C.

In late 2006, Bilson was cast in the role of Millie in Doug Liman's thriller Jumper, as the replacement for actress Teresa Palmer; Bilson began filming the role in October of that year. The film is scheduled for a February 2008 release. Rachel will also appear in friend Josh Schwartz's new NBC comedy, Chuck.

Personal life

Bilson began dating her The O.C. co-star, Adam Brody in 2003. In 2005, Brody gave Bilson a pit bull, Penny Lane, as a birthday present. The couple later adopted another dog, Thurmen Murmen. The two split in December 2006. She is close friends with Mischa Barton.

Rachel Bilson has been recognized by several media sources as being a "fashion junkie" She has described herself as having a "vintage" sense of style, and noted Kate Moss and Diane Keaton as inspirations. Bilson enjoys watching television game shows, especially Jeopardy!, and has stated that if she were not acting, she would be a pre-school teacher. Her favorite designers are Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs and Chanel. Bilson has turned down requests to appear seminude in magazines, specifying that she feels that her body "is sacred" and "not there for the whole world to see". However, she has been featured in Stuff magazine. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

He was the second child of two pastors. and has a sister and brother, and uncle of his mother laki.Bibi is screenwriter Eleanor Perry and director Frank Perry. Perry joined his parents' church services and sang in church from age nine to seventeen. He grew up listening to gospel music, are not allowed to listen to what she calls "worldly music", and attended Christian schools and camps.

As a child, Perry learned to dance at a community center in Santa Barbara and taught by experienced dancers starting from swing dances, Lindy Hop, and Jitterbug. After passing the GED test in his first year at Dos Pueblo High School, he decided to leave school and pursue a career in music. Perry initially started singing "because [she] was at that point in [her] childhood where [she] was copycatting [her] sister and everything she [would do]". His brother to practice using the tape, while Perry took the tape as her brother did not exist. He practiced with the song and perform in front of his parents, who suggested that she take vocal training. Katy took the opportunity and began studying at age nine to sixteen years. He then enrolled at the Academy of the West in Santa Barbara and studied the Italian opera in a short time.

Perry appeared with his guitar; tools that he learned when starting a career At age 15, Perry sang in church and attract the attention of rock veterans from Nashville, Tennessee, which brought Perry there to polish writing skills. In Nashville, Perry started recording demos and by veterans of country music are taught how to arrange songs and playing guitar. Perry signed a contract with Christian music label, Red Hill, and he recorded his first album at age 15. Shown as Katy Hudson, she released her self-titled album-rock gospel Katy Hudson in 2001. The album was not successful after the label ceased operations in late 2001.

She later changed her surname to Perry from his mother's family name because "Katy Hudson" was too similar to film actress Kate Hudson. At age 17, Perry left his home to Los Angeles to begin working with Glen Ballard on an album for record label Island. This album is scheduled for release in 2005, but Billboard reported the album does not exist everywhere. Perry and Ballard several collaborations including "Box", "Diamonds" and "Long Shot" posted on his official MySpace page. "Simple" is a song recorded with Ballard, released as a soundtrack for the 2005 movie, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Perry signed a contract with Columbia Records in 2004. However, the label does not agree with his vision and do not put it in "driving seat" is. In contrast, Columbia is one idea to pair Perry with record production team The Matrix for a female vocalist in the album. Although the album was later ruled out, he attracted the attention of the music press; made him develop his musical career as "The Next Big Thing" in October 2004 by Blender magazine.

In the absence of an ongoing album project, Perry started his own record. Eighty percent completed, but Columbia decided not to finish it and remove the label. While waiting to find another label, he worked on an independent A & R company called Taxi Music. In 2006, Perry displayed at the end of the video for the single POD, "Goodbye for Now". He made cameo appearances in the video Carbon Leaf, "Learn to Fly"

While in the process of being dropped by Columbia in 2006, executive publicity company, Angelica Cob-Baehler enthusiastically recommend Perry to the Chairman of Virgin Records, Jason Flom. At that time, Flom was leading a revival in the label and look for a top of the latest achievements in the global pop. Although there were mixed reactions from fellow executives Virgin, Flom become increasingly convinced that Perry could be a new star and in early 2007, Columbia produced a lengthy discussion with the signing of Katy Perry with Capitol Music Group recently formed, a merger between Virgin and Capitol. As part of the deal, the label to ensure the master (Perry) with an unfinished album, which had recorded while at Columbia, became an important part of the first official debut album, One of the Boys.

Columbia recordings viewed by Flom as "a very strong, but lack the punch that can not be denied, or both, may work well in the U.S. and international pop radio" and one of the first actions the executive after completing the signing of the contract is to make a collaboration between Perry with the songwriter and producer, Dr. Luke.

jennifer lopez

Name: Jennifer Lopez
Born: 24 July 1970 (Age: 41)
Where: New York, New York, USA
Height: 5' 6"
Awards: 1 Golden Globe nomination


So many film stars have attempted to launch a career in film; so many hit musicians have sought further success in the movies. Think Madonna, Bruce Willis, David Bowie, Whitney Houston, Keanu Reeves, Mariah Carey, the list goes on and on. Yet none of them have ever matched the monumental parallel achievements of Jennifer Lopez. Three multi-million-selling albums, and counting: several major blockbusters: Hollywood pay packets breaking the $12 million mark, AND a Golden Globe nomination. Then there's the clothing line, the cosmetics and fragrances. The woman is truly an all-singing, all-dancing phenomenon.

She was born in the Castle Hill area of New York's Bronx on the 24th of July, 1970, growing up on Blackrock Avenue. Her father, David, was a computer technician, eventually working for Guardian Insurance. Mother Guadalupe (nee Rodriguez) was a kindergarten teacher working up in Westchester County. The couple both hailed from Ponce (though David's maternal great-parents were European), the second largest city in Puerto Rico, but had met in America, where they were both brought as children.

Jennifer and her two sisters, Leslie (now a housewife and opera singer) and Lynda (a DJ, VJ and entertainment reporter), grew up in a small apartment which was "cold in the winter, hot in the summer". But "Hey", Jennifer later recalled "there was always rice and beans". And there was music. To keep the kids off the streets, Guadalupe would encourage them to put on little performances in the front room, singing and dancing. Salsa and merengue were favourites, with West Side Story viewed on many occasions - being about their people in their kind of neighbourhood. Jennifer claims to have seen the movie over 100 times. As a kid, she always admired Rita Moreno for her feistiness, her hot dancing and her cool boyfriend, yet ambition told her she should want to be Natalie Wood's Maria - the star.

This ambition was fed from an early age. Jennifer began singing and dancing lessons from the age of 5 (at 7 her school dance class would tour New York), continuing through 8 years at the Catholic Holy Family high school in the Bronx, and another 4 at the all-girl Preston High School. Here she also proved herself to be an excellent athlete, pursuing softball, tennis, gymnastics and track events. She wasn't ever much of a student, though. When later asked what she got on her SATs, she joked "Nail polish".
