Sandra Bullock

Sandra Annette Bullock born July 26, 1964 in Arlington Virginia. Her Mothers name was Helga D. Meyer who was a German opera singer and voice teacher passed away in the year 2000. Her father John W. Bullock a voice coach and executive from Alabama. Sandras maternal grandfather was a rocket scientist from Nuremburg, Germany. Sandra lived in Nuremberg until age twelve, where she sang in the opera's children's choir at the Staatstheater Nürnberg. She frequently traveled with her mother on her opera tours, and lived in Germany and other parts of Europe for much of her childhood. She is fluent in German.
Sandra studied ballet and vocal arts as a child, taking small parts in her mother's opera productions. Bullock has a sister, Gesine Bullock-Prado.
Bullock attended Washington-Lee High School where she was a cheerleader, participated in high school theater productions, and even dated a football player.
She graduated in 1982 and enrolled in East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. She left East Carolina during her senior year in the spring of 1986, only three credits short of graduating, to pursue an acting career. She moved to Manhattan to pursue auditions and supported herself with a variety of odd jobs (bartender, cocktail waitress and coat checker. Sandra later completed her coursework at East Carolina University.
On December 20, 2000, Bullock survived the crash of a chartered business jet at Jackson Hole Airport. The aircraft hit a snowbank instead of the runway, resulting in both the nose gear and nose cone being ripped off, the right wing partially separating from the aircraft, and the left wing being bent back. On April 18, 2008, while Bullock was in Massachusetts shooting the film The Proposal, she and her husband were in an SUV that was hit head-on (driver's side offset) at moderate speed by a drunken driver. Vehicle damage was not catastrophic and amazingly there were no injuries.
In October 2004, Bullock won a multimillion-dollar judgment against Benny Daneshjou, the builder of her Lake Austin, Texas home; the jury ruled the house was uninhabitable. It has since been torn down and rebuilt. Bullock also owns a house on Tybee Island, which is a few miles from Savannah, Georgia. In 2009, she purchased a home in the historic Garden District neighborhood of New Orleans. On April 22, 2007, Marcia Diana Valentine was found lying outside James's and Bullock's Southern California home in Orange County. When James confronted the woman, she ran to her 2004 silver Mercedes, got behind the wheel, and tried to run over James. The woman is said to be an obsessed fan of Sandra Bullock.
The woman was charged with one felony count each of aggravated assault and stalking, while Bullock obtained a restraining order to bar Valentine from "contacting or coming near her home, family or work for three years." Valentine pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault and stalking. Valentine was subsequently convicted of stalking and was sentenced to three years of probation. Recently she got another restraining order from Thomas James Weldon who was but this time the restraining order was for her son Louis, since her previous order expired.
My favorite movies she was in would have to be Speed,She was smoking hot in Demolition Man,While You Were Sleeping,The Net,Hope Floats,Murder By Numbers,Two Weeks Notice,Premonition and she was also smoking hot in The Proposal. I just saw The blind Side the other night and it was better than I thought it would be.

Sean Connery

Sir Thomas Sean Connery born August 25th 1930 in Fountainbridge, Edinburg. He was a milkman for his first job, then he joined the Royal Navy but was discharged because of having an ulcer but later returned to the co-op. After that he was a lorry driver, a laborer, an artist's model for The Edinburg College of Art and a coffin polisher. Not mention one of the greatest actors to ever live. While he was in the Navy he got 2 tattoo's one simply saying "Mum and Dad", the other saying "Scotland Forever".

Connery claims he was called Sean, his middle name, long before becoming an actor, explaining that when he was young he had an Irish friend named Séamus and that those who knew them both had decided to call Connery by his middle name whenever both were present.
Sean Connery was best known for portraying the character James Bond, starring in seven Bond films between 1962 and 1983.
Connery has been polled as the, "Greatest Living Scot" and was knighted in July 2000. In 1989, he was proclaimed, the Sexiest Man Alive, by People Magazine and in 1999, at age 69, he was voted, Sexiest Man of the Century!
He has won an Academy Award, Two BAFTA Awards and Three Golden Globes throughout his career. He has been married twice first to Diane Cilento from 1962 to 1973 and then to Micheline Roquebrune from 1975 to present day.
While making the Bond films, Connery also starred in other acclaimed films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Marine (1964) and Murder on the Orient Express (1974). Then The Man Who Would Be King and The Wind and the Lion (1975). Then A Bridge Too Far (1977). In 1981, Sean Connery appeared in the film Time Bandits as Agamemnon. The casting choice derives from a joke Michael Palin included in the script, in which he describes the character as being "Sean Connery — or someone of equal but cheaper stature". When shown the script, Connery was happy to play the supporting role.
Diane Cilento in her 2006 autobiography My Nine Lives, as well as in subsequent interviews on radio and in print, Diane claimed that Connery had beaten her on several occasions. Connery vehemently denied the accusations. In a December 1987 interview with Barbara Walters, he stated that it would be acceptable for a man to hit a woman with an open hand, if she continues to provoke the man after he concedes an argument to her. Connery had made similar remarks in a November 1965 interview with Playboy magazine on the set of Thunderball: "I don't think there is anything particularly wrong about hitting a woman ... If a woman is a bitch, or hysterical, or bloody-minded continually, then I'd do it." In 1993, Vanity Fair quoted him saying there are confrontational women who "want a smack".
In 1993, news that Connery was undergoing radiation treatment for an undisclosed throat ailment sparked media reports that the actor was suffering from throat cancer following years of heavy smoking, and he was falsely declared dead by the Japanese and South African news agencies. Connery immediately appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to deny all of this. In a February 1995 interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said that the radiation treatment was to remove nodules from his vocal cords. His father, a heavy smoker, died from throat cancer in 1972. In 2003, he had surgery to remove cataracts from both eyes. On 12 March 2006, he announced he was recovering from surgery to remove a kidney tumor in January. In 2008, he chipped a bone in his shoulder after falling while playing golf. In October 2009, he told Wine Spectator magazine that he has been diagnosed with a heart condition.
My favorite movies would have to be Highlander,The Untouchables,Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade,The Hunt For Red October,Medicine Man,Rising Sun,First Knight and The Rock.
Here's a video from when he was on Barbara Walters talking about a bitch slap.(so to speak)

Jenna von Oÿ

Born on May 2nd 1977 in Stamford Connecticut. Parents are Gloria and Frank von Oÿ. I remember her from the show Blossom. But then I saw her on the show The Parkers and it seems as though she's all grown up.

She began her acting career as a child in regional stage productions and commercials.

Jenna made her television acting debut in 1986 appearing on an episode of ABC Weekend Special, then she appeared on shows like Tales from the Darkside and Kate & Allie acting out guest roles. She also co-starred in the sitcom Lenny although the show didn't last long. In 1989 she appeared in the feature film Born on the Fourth of July opposite Tom Cruise. Then there was Blossom from 1991 to 1995 portraying the role of Six LeMeure. I didn't think she was going to grow up and be extremely hot! She also is the voice of Stacey in A Goofy Movie in 1995. Then she attended the University of Southern Califonia for a couple years, but then she dropped out and returned to acting. From 1999 to 2004 she began to play the role of Stevie van Lowe in the Parkers. During that time Jenna played the voice of Trinket St. Blaire in the animated series Pepper Ann. In June 2000, Jenna recorded a demo compact disc (which honestly I have not heard yet) in an attempt to launch a recording career in country music. Her debut album, Breathing Room, was released on September 18, 2007.
In 2005 she appeared in Marsha Potter Gets a Life. Then she guest stared in a episode of Cold Case and parodied Lauren Graham's character of Lorelei Gilmore in the Family Guy episode Perfect Castaway. She was also the voice of Gracie in the feature Dr. Dolittle 3 which went straight to DVD.
