Kate Mara

Kate Mara born on February 27th 1983 in Bedford, New York.
Kate is daughter of Timothy Christopher Mara, a scout for the New York Giants, and Kathleen McNulty (née Rooney).
Mara's favorite Giants game was when she was asked to sing the national anthem in honor of her grandfather, Wellington Mara, who died in October 2005. Mara has regularly sung at home games and season openers of the Giants since about the age of 15 or 16 when her uncle asked her to fill in when they couldn't find a singer. She has also sung at a couple of Steelers games. She sang the national anthem at the 2006 NFL season opener, dubbed the "Manning Bowl," where the Giants played the Indianapolis Colts. Mara's singing was featured in the film The Californians. She sang the national anthem at the last game played by the Giants at Giants Stadium in December 2009.

I recognize her most from watching the show Nip Tuck, the movie Stone of Destiny and Iron Man 2. Kate has stated that she comes from a "huge" family. Her father was one of 11 children. Kate has 22 aunts and uncles and 40 cousins. She lives in Los Angeles, having resided there on and off since around 2003. Her younger sister, Patricia lived with her temporarily after relocating to Los Angeles in 2007. Kate travels back to New York when her schedule allows and has stated, "If I could live in New York, I would", specifying that she likes "the cold... the rain" and "misses it". she also stated that she likes "not needing plans" in New York. Kate tries to spend the football season in New York when she can. She dated producer and director McG with whom she worked on We Are Marshall. In July 2008, she was linked to Stone of Destiny co-star Charlie Cox.

Mara's first television role was in the drama Law & Order in 1997.

Halle Berry

Marie Halle Berry born August 16th 1966. Her former flame Gabriel Aubry is now dating Kim Kardashian. I thought that was interesting.
Divorced from baseball player David Justice and musician Eric Benet. Halle dated Gabriel Aubry or 5 years breaking up in April, 2010. Their daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry, was born on March 16, 2008.

Before Halle became an actress, Berry entered several beauty contests, finishing runner-up in the Miss USA (1986), and coming in 6th place in the Miss World Pageant in 1986. Her first major role was Jungle Fever in 1991.
I think she is very beautiful as long as she doesn't have short hair. For some reason longer hair is sexy to me, and most guys would agree.
