Robert Pattinson was born on May 13, 1986, in London, England. His mother worked for a modelling agency, and his father imported vintage cars from the U.S.
As a child, the Hollywood heartthrob was quite the troublemaker, getting expelled from school at the age of 12, stating once in an interview that he was “quite bad.” At that time, he began his modelling career, but it wound down only four years later. At the age of 15, he discovered his talent for acting after joining the Barnes Theatre Company in London, where he landed roles in amateur plays.
Angelina Jolie has starred in thrillers like The Bone Collector (1999) and Taking Lives (2004), as well as blockbusters such as Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000), Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), A Mighty Heart (2007), and Wanted (2008). She’s also famous for her well-documented relationships to Billy Bob Thornton and Brad Pitt. Unfortunately, Angelina Jolie’s highly publicized antics attracted more attention than her movie roles for many years.
Seldom does a single actor change Hollywood’s perception of the perfect man. Yet Russell Crowe – a quiet, moody, hard-bitten New Zealander – appears to have done exactly that.
Russell Ira Crowe was born on April 7th, 1964, in Strathmore Park, a suburb of Wellington, New Zealand (he has Maori blood from his mother’s side of the family). The cinema was in Russell’s blood. His mother’s father was an award-winning cinematographer during World War 2, while his parents were set caterers.
Megan Fox is of French, Irish and Cherokee descent. She was born as Megan Denise Fox in Rockwood, Tennessee, on May 16, 1986, to Macey Tonachio, former tourism director, and Frank Fox. She grew up in a very poor household and has one older sister. Ever since childhood, she has aspired to become an actress and started taking drama and dance lessons in Kingston, Tennessee, at the age of 5 and thrived from the very beginning. Despite a move to St. Petersburg, Florida, when she was 10, Megan’s parents did not let their youngest daughter forgo her talent, and so the future actress continued taking her dancing and acting lessons while finishing her high school studies at the same time.
The new millennium certainly saw British actresses making an impact in Hollywood. Following in the footsteps of multiple-Oscar nominees Kate Winslet and Emily Watson came Kate Beckinsale, and, of course, that scourge of mummies everywhere, Rachel Weisz. Though she broke through in action roles, Weisz has, from the very start of her acting career, exhibited a far wider emotional range than all of her peers and thoroughly deserved the Oscar she received for her portrayal of a passionate, flighty and doomed activist in John Le Carre’s The Constant Gardener.
Aside from being a tall, blond beauty, Gwyneth Paltrow is known for her starring roles in Proof (2005), Running with Scissors (2006), Iron Man (2008), as well for being the recipient of a coveted Oscar for her role in 1998’s Shakespeare in Love.
If Harrison Ford had listened to the advice of studio heads early in his career, he would have remained a carpenter and never gone on to star in some of Hollywood’s biggest films and become one of the industry’s most bankable stars. Born July 13, 1942, in Chicago and raised in a middle-class suburb, he had an average childhood. An introverted loner, he was popular with girls but picked on by school bullies. Ford quietly endured their everyday tortures until he one day lost his cool and beat the tar out of the gang leader responsible for his being repeatedly thrown off an embankment. He had no special affinity for films and usually only went to see them on dates because they were inexpensive and dark.
Few actresses enjoy the kind of success Keira Knightley saw in 2003. First, her major picture starring debut, Pirates Of The Caribbean, entered the all-time Top 20 of box-office hits. Then, due to this success, her earlier low-budget effort, Bend It Like Beckham, already a cult smash, found its release widened dramatically, taking it into undreamed of profit. Her rise in a few short months would be nothing short of phenomenal. And still she was only 18.
Hailed in 2006 by director Kevin Macdonald as the world’s “best British actor under 30 without question,” Glasgow native James McAvoy’s talent for playing flawed yet sympathetic characters made him an actor to watch for the new millennium. Officially starting his screen career at age 16 in the 1995 thriller, “The Near Room,” it would be another eight years before McAvoy landed his big break in the 2003 Sci-Fi Channel original miniseries, “Children of Dune.” After a handful of well-received television roles, McAvoy’s feature career took off in 2005, starting with a major role in “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe” (2005), followed closely with a truly impressive turn as an ethically ambiguous physician in the critical hit, “The Last King of Scotland” (2006).
No matter how many roles Christina Ricci takes on, she will always be remembered for playing Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family (1991). That role could have been a curse, but it ended up a blessing thanks to the exposure and wealth of opportunities that followed. Those “open doors” allowed Christina to pick roles that showcased her abilities as an actress, instead of typecasting her as a child star. Unlike many of her young colleagues, Christina was able to make the transition to serious actress by having the courage to take on complex roles in non-mainstream films. Though her image, attitude and philosophy have changed over the years, the one constant has been her abilities as an actress.
With looks that have inspired numerous People magazine covers, Internet fansites, and paparazzi blitzkriegs, Brad Pitt can count himself as one of the luckiest men in the world. One of the most gifted actors of his generation, he makes $10 million per movie, enjoys international fame and recognition and has hordes of women on bended knee for him.
American actress Rose McGowan made an undeniably distinct impression on Hollywood in the late ‘90s. With her sharp tongue and brash sensuality, McGowan has been a source of both titillation and discomfort to an industry that still hasn’t quite figured out what to do with women who are both unapologetically smart and sexual.
Bruce Willis has come a long way from his Broadway roots to become everyone’s favorite underdog action hero. What makes everyone like Bruce is that no matter what he does, it always seems like he’s having a good time doing it. He is living the American dream and he knows it, so why not live it up? He is the antithesis of any of the seemingly by-the-book, serious Hollywood actors.
Having appeared on over 100 various magazine covers and in hit movies like The Fifth Element with Bruce Willis and Resident Evil, Milla Jovovich is now a successful superstar who flings herself everywhere from movies to fashion shows.
She is what the entertainment industry would call versatile. Her extremely successful modeling career helped pave the way for her future projects in acting and in the music industry.
One of the crop of obscenely attractive young stars to pop up during the late 1990s, Josh Hartnett has the kind of strong-jawed, puppy-eyed looks that make him equally suited for both movie stardom and Tommy Hilfiger ads.
Born Joshua Daniel Hartnett in St. Paul, Minnesota, on July 21, 1978 as the oldest of four children, Josh Hartnett experienced a quiet and comfortable upbringing.
The 33-year-old actress has more than 40 film and television credits to her name. It is her on-screen charm that has captivated numerous audiences and has allowed her to win role after role throughout her career. Having worked consistently from the age of 17, when she was cast, while still at school, to star opposite Jeremy Irons in the film Waterland, Lena says her successes has been a string of happy accidents. Lacking the fearsome ambition of such fellow Brits as Catherine Zeta-Jones or Kate Beckinsale, she has nonetheless played a string of leading roles over the years.
Lucy Liu was never catapulted to stardom; she had to work her way up from the bottom. Since she had to deal with typecasting and degrading roles to get where she is today, the fact that she takes her career in stride with a genuine smile says a lot about her personality.
Despite her enormous success on the television and the big screen, she doesn’t want to be regarded as an ambassador for Asian Americans in the entertainment industry.
Broke into acting in such an unusual way, Jason Statham has really found his path in the film industry through his performance in action pictures and soared to be one of the most popular actors of the genre by the 21st century, thanks to his past professions which included that of a black market salesman.
Frankly speaking, I never liked plasticine movies. That's why when one day my friend Kate suggested watching something "very funny" of that kind I wasn't very enthusiastic. But to my greatest surprise, Wallace the naive, green-knitted-tank-top-wearing inventor-cheeselover and his best pal, the intelligent but silent dog, Gromit won my love almost at once. The movie was called
A Grand Day Out
[Пикник на Луне]
and was the first to tell the audience about the adventures of the clay modelled characters Wallace and Gromit.
You Know My Name
I think that an eccentric journalist Ian Fleming, if still alive, would be much surprised to learn about the enormous popularity of his book character. Almost half of the century immortal James Bond has been saving the world. The secret service agent with the “simplest, dullest, plainest-sounding name” as Fleming once said, now is a prominent character in video games, comic strips and comic books and has been subjected to many parodies.
The Nineties saw the rise of some big, big stars. At different points Brad Pitt, Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey, Will Smith and Adam Sandler stormed the Hollywood firmament with a string of massive hits. But none of them enjoyed the kind of fame achieved by Leonardo DiCaprio.
Beginning the decade as a promising newcomer, he ended it with “Titanic”, the biggest smash in cinema history, and a worldwide army of teenage fans so crazed and committed to their idol they had critics recalling the manic days of Beatlemania.
