Johnny Depp

Well known actor and heart throb Johnny Depp has stared in many diverse roles. I'm pretty sure every girlfriend I've had wouldn't pass up the chance to be with this guy. On November 19th 1999 Johnny Depp got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
His mother bought him a guitar when he was twelve. As a guitar player, Depp has recorded a solo album, played slide guitar on the Oasis song "Fade In-Out" from Be Here Now in 1997 as well as on "Fade Away" the "Warchild Version" b-side of the "Don't Go Away" single. He also played acoustic guitar in the movie "Chocolat" and on the soundtrack to "Once Upon aTime in Mexico". He is friends with The Pogues' Shane MacGowan and performed on MacGowan's first solo album. Depp was also a member of P, a group featuring Butthole Surfers singer Gibby Haynes and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea. He appeared in the music video called "Into the Great Wide Open" by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as well. Busy guy...
The very first film Johnny Depp was in is "A Nightmare On Elm Street". The most popular movies include Platoon,Whats Eating Gilbert Grape,Fear and Loathing In Las Veges,Sleepy Hollow,The Ninth Gate,Chocolat,Blow,Pirates in the Caribbeans to name a few. I remember him mostly from the show 21 Jumpstreet.
John Christopher Depp II has worked along with Tim Burton in seven differen't movies. Films featuring Depp made near 2.3 billion in the united states box office and a whopping 4.8 billion worldwide.

Helen Hunt

I had quite the crush on Helen Elizabeth Hunt when she played in the show Mad About You for seven years. Just something about her that I liked.
Anyways, Helen was born June 15 1963 in Culver City California. Helen briefly dated Kevin Spacey(which I did not know) in the year of 2000. Helen Hunt has been in many shows and movies starting as early as the 1970's as a child actress in the Mary Tyler Moore Show. The movies I liked were Cast Away,Twister,As Good As It Gets,What Women Want,Pay It Forward. I guess she was in One Night At McCool's as a truck driver but the scenes were deleted? A lot of people tend to remember her being in Bionic Woman but I must have missed that episode? She also played in the popular TV shows St. Elsewhere and The Swiss Family Robinson.

She was on an after school special called Desperate Lives where she jumped out of a window after doing PCP. A scene which she later mocked during a Saturday Night Live monologue in 1994. I'm glad she has a sense of humor as well.
A lot of people (including myself) mistake the idenity of Leelee Sobieski as Helen Hunts Daughter or Look Alike because she resembles her. I did a little research and found out that in fact she is Not related in anyway.
Below is a short clip with Helen Hunt in the movie Trancers. I've never seen it honestly.

Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks is another one of my favorite actors that I think deserves a lot of credit.
Tom was born July 9th 1956. Hanks studied theater at Chabot college in Hayward California but after two years of that transferred to California State University in Sacramento.
Tom told the New York Times...

"Acting classes looked like the best place for a guy who liked to make a lot of noise and be rather flamboyant. I spent a lot of time going to plays. I wouldn't take dates with me. I'd just drive to a theater, buy myself a ticket, sit in the seat, and read the program, and then get into the play completely. I spent a lot of time like that, seeing Bertolt Brecht, Tennessee Williams,Henrik Isben,and all that, and now look at me, acting is my job. I wouldn't have it any other way."
Hank met Vincet Dowling, head of the great Lakes Theater Festival on Cleveland, Ohio. Dowling's suggested to Tom to become an intern at the Festival, which stretched into a three-year experience that covered everything from lighting to set design to stage management. Such a commitment required that Hanks drop out of college, but with this under his belt, a future in acting was in the cards. Hanks won the Cleveland Critics Circle Award for Best Actor for his performance as Proteus in Shakespeare's The Two Gentlemen of Verona, one of the few times he played a villain.
Tom Hanks has been in so many good movies and shows that it's hard to say which one is my favorite?
Did you know he was in the movie Real Genius in 1985 but is not credited for it? He is only in the movie briefly when the main actor Mitch bumps into him in a crowd.
There was two movies in 1984 that gave him the boost he needed to become a star. Those two movies are Splash and Bachelor Party. In the movie Splash he was considered by Ron Howard the director to be the wise cracking brother which instead went to John Candy. Tom Hanks got the main role in Splash that turned out to be a pretty good idea considering it made over $69 million dollars that year in the box office.
My favorite movie he starred in if I had to pick one would be The Burbs. Hilarious! Castaway,Saving Private Ryan,The Green Mile, and I'm curious to see Where The Wild Things Are (2009). Tom Hanks is the Producer of the Where The Wild Things Are and who knows? It might be really good!

Kim Kardashian

Kimberly Noel Kardashian born October 21, 1980.
I can barely turn around with out seeing Kims booty all over the internet.  Not that I'm complaining.  Her show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians seems to be on all the time.
Did you know that O. J. Simpson is Kardashian's godfather!
While attending high school, Kardashian worked at her father's music marketing firm, Movie Tunes.
Kardashian's father is Armenian and her mother is Dutch descent.  The daughter of attorney Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner.  Robert Kardashian is known for defending O.J.

Stepsister Casey Jenner, and she has two half sisters named Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

Jim Carrey

James Eugene Carrey was born January 17,1962 in Newmarket Ontario and is known for his performances as a stand up comedian.  The roles he played on the show In Living Color were hilarious.  His popular movies include Ace Ventura Pet Detective,Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls,Bruce Almighty,Liar Liar,The Truman Show,Man On The Moon,Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,The Mask,Dumb and Dumber,How the Grinch Stole Christmas,Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events,FunWith Dick and Jane and Yes Man.
(February 2007), Carrey remarked, "If my career in show business hadn't panned out I would probably be working today in Hamilton, Ontario at the Dofasco steel mill."  When looking across the Burlington Bay toward Hamilton, he could see the mills and thought, "those were where the great jobs were."
In the early 1980's Jim was noticed by Rodney Dangerfield while working at The Comedy Store in LA to the stand up on Dangerfield's tour performances.
Carrey has a chipped tooth; for his role in Dumb and Dumber, he simply removed the tooth cap.

Jennifer Aniston

This smoking hot beauty named Jenifer Joanna Aniston was born in Sherman Oaks California February 11th, 1969 but then grew up in New York City. She became famous for her role as Rachael Green in the sitcom called Friends. Jenifer was recieveing 1 million dollars per an episode the last two seasons of Friends. The show lasted ten years from 1994 to 2004.
Jennifer Aniston has appeared in various commercials and music videos. In 1996, she was in Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers music video, "Walls." Aniston was in Melissa Etheridge's 2001 music video, "I Want To Be In Love." Jennifer Aniston was cast in a Heineken commercial which was later banned due to branding issues. Aniston has been in commercials for L'Oreal Hair Products.
As of 2009, Aniston's movies have grossed $900,618,847 in the United States and over $1,508,048,564 worldwide.
In her younger days she almost gave up on acting before she found the show Friends.
Jenifer supported herself by painting, being a bike messenger even a telemaketer at one point before moving to LA in 1989. It turned out to be a good move.
Aniston said her relationship with Pitt, which she does not regret, was "seven very intense years together" and that "it was a beautiful, complicated relationship."Me personally, I think he's a damn fool for leaving her but I guess he must take advatage of his stardom somehow.
Jenifer is a supporter to many charitable organizations like St.Judes Childrens Reserch Hospital which she appeared in many commercials,Friends Of El Faro,Grassroots Non Profit Organization and others.

Kevin Spacey

Born July 26 1959 Kevin Spacey is possibly my favorite actor ever. He played in many roles and he is actually able to pull it off. Unlike others that I will not name at this point.
Kevin grew up in California and began acting in 1980 as a stage actor. His first academy award was for his role in The Usual Suspects for best supporting actor. Then came American Beauty and from there his career soared starring in Seven,LA Confidential,Pay It Forward and Superman Returns. I liked the movie K-PAX personally.Now I guess he intends to stay in Britain and eventually get British citizenship. Directing at a theature named Old Vic, from the sounds of it I assume he doesn't plan on coming back to America but who knows really except for Kevin himself? Another one of my favorites with him in it is "The Negotiator". Great movie along with Samuel L. Jackson.  Another good one that I would recommend watching is "Swimming With Sharks".

At the age of only 14, she left school and worked as a hostess at a restaurant while auditioning for acting jobs. Leah became well known for her role as Carrie Heffernan in the sitcom entitled "The King Of Queens". Which ran a total of nine seasons!
Leah Remini responding to criticism after an interview on CNN about Scientology.
