Hottest Hollywood Actresses Biography
Seemed logical to me at the time.) Rather than bore you with how I came up with this list (because 99.9% of you will disagree with it anyway) I thought I would share some fun facts!! Everyone love fun facts! Almost a fourth of these ladies were born in California (10 actually in Los Angeles with several more in surrounding towns), 13 were born in and around New York City, nine were born in Texas, and five in Canada. Also, over a fourth of these women were born outside the United States thus stealing precious jobs from less-talented American thespians.
I have also included a mini-career biography of each lady showing when and on what TV show and movie they were first given acting credit, which provides us with classic show titles such as Shotgun Love Dolls, Child Bride of Short Creek, Death Machine, Sex Drive, and Man-Thing. Who could ever forget Man-Thing?
You really owe it to yourself to check out these bios. They're awesome. In them you will find out such tidbits as Eva Longoria's TV debut was on Beverly Hills, 90210, and Emma Stone's TV debut was playing Laurie Partidge in The New Partridge Family movie. You'll also learn that Mad Men's January Jones and Christina Hendricks both made their movie debuts in the same movie, Sorority, (another classic) and that Kate Beckinsale made her TV debut when she was just two years-old. You'll also see that the youngest lady on this list was born on July 22, 1992 (Selena Gomez) and the oldest was born June 15, 1964 (Courteney Cox).
Oh sure I could have just tossed all of these names in a hat, along with about 50 more ladies, and probably came up with a list just as proper (and had just as many people disagree with it and call me gay), but this is our list and we're sticking to it. For now.
Patricia Helen Heaton is one of the few Hollywood conservatives who is absolutely candid about her political positions. The former Everybody Loves Raymond star is honorary chair of the national pro-life organization, Feminists for Life and in 2006, she appeared in an ad opposing embryonic stem cell research. The ad caused a public outcry when it appeared during Game 4 of the World Series (details below). Despite her otherwise socially conservative beliefs, she supports gay rights and birth control. A Republican, she supported John McCain for president in 2008 and Sarah Palin for vice president.
The rare versatility and down-to-earth appeal of Renee Zellweger earned the actress Oscar and Golden Globe Awards for her comedy, musical and dramatic work, as well made her one of the highest paid screen actresses in Hollywood. Zellweger was a virtual unknown when director Cameron Crowe cast her opposite box office megastar Tom Cruise in "Jerry Maguire," (1996) where she made cinematic history with the line, "You had me at hello." She went on to define the chick lit generation with her title role in "Bridget Jones's Diary" (2001) before intense, impressive turns in "Chicago" (2002) and "Cold Mountain" (2004) proved that she was as capable of drama as the romantic comedies that started her career. Off-screen, Texas-bred Zellweger was known for her bouts of "imposter syndrome" and seemingly endless disbelief over her movie star status, as well as being one of the most genuinely nice, down-to-earth stars in the business.
Renee Zellweger was born on April 25, 1969, and raised in the Houston, TX suburb of Katy. Zellweger's was not the typical rural Texas upbringing, however, with a Norwegian-born nurse for a mother and Swiss-born engineer for a father - complete with kippers on the table instead of fried chicken. Growing up, Zellweger idolized her older brother Drew and took after him as an avid soccer and baseball player. Her father encouraged self-reliance in the young tomboy, teaching her auto repair and recruiting her to help in the building of a new family home when she was just nine years old. In high school, Zellweger became a cheerleader, appeared in several school plays, and was voted "Best Looking" before graduating in 1987 and heading to the University of Texas in Austin.
While working towards an English degree, Zellweger took a drama class to fulfill an arts requirement and truly fell in love with the stage. She was relatively untrained, but she was a natural. While still in school, she landed her first job in a commercial. When graduation rolled around, the honors student decided to fully devote herself to acting, no matter the financial outcome.
