Molly Ringwald

Molly Kathleen Ringwald born February 18th 1968 in Roseville, California. Her Mother Adele Edith (née Frembd), a housewife and chef. Her Father Robert Scott "Bob" Ringwald, a blind jazz pianist.
Molly has two siblings, Elizabeth and Kelly. She started her acting career at age five, starring in a stage production of Alice in Wonderland as the Dormouse. The next year, she recorded "I Wanna Be Loved by You," a music album of Dixieland jazz with her father and his group, the Fulton Street Jazz Band.
My favorite movies that she acts in are of course The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles. Those movies were huge to me growing up. My sisters of course liked Pretty In Pink which I thought was tolerable if there was nothing else on. Classic Chick Flick.
She was good in the movie The Stand as well.

She is married to Panio Gianopoulos, a Greek-American writer and book editor, in 2007. They have a daughter, Mathilda Ereni (born October 22, 2003), and twins, Adele Georgiana and Roman Stylianos (born July 10, 2009). Her pregnancy was written into the storyline of The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

Anthony Hopkins

Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins born December 31st 1937 in Margam, Port Talbot, Wales. His parents Muriel Anne (née Yeats) and Richard Arthur Hopkins who was a baker. Anthony Hopkins is considered to be one of the greatest living actors. In his younger days he seemed to be more interested in playing the piano, painting or even drawing rather than school. In 1949 his parents insisted he attend Jones West Monmouth Boys School in Pontypool, Wales. A disciplinary school where he attended for 5 terms. Then he went to Cowbridge Grammar School in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales.

When Anthony was 15 years old he briefly met Richard Burton. It was thenthat he got the inspiration to act. After that he attended Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff, Wales. He graduated from there in 1957. Then Anthony spent two years in the British Army doing hes national service. In London he trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
Anthony Hopkins was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1993 for services to the arts.  He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2003 and was made a Fellow of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in 2008.
Still a citizen of he Britain, he also became a U.S. citizen on April 12th 2000 as well.  He has won an Academy Award, three BAFTA Awards, two Emmys, a Golden Globe and a Cecil B. DeMille Award.
Of course his most popular movie that had a role in would have to be The Silence of the Lambs as Hannibal Lecter.  Which I thought was a pretty messed up movie but that's what they going for.  Being a Horror film and all.
He was also good in The Bounty,Bram Stoker's Dracula, Legends of the Fall,The Edge,The Mask of Zorro,Meet Joe Black,Instinct,Hannibal,Hearts in Atlantis,Bad Company and Red Dragon.

Lucy Lawless

Lucelle Frances Ryan born on March 29th 1968 in Auckland, New Zealand.
The fifth of seven children, she has five brothers and one sister. They lived in the suburbs of Mount Albert. Her mother Julie was a teacher. Her father was a banker and the mayor for Mount Albert.
She began acting in secondary school when she was younger, Lucy suffered bulimia, but was able to overcome the illness in college at the Auckland University. There she studied foreign languages for a year, including German, Italian and French.
She also studied opera for three years. She realized though learning opera required changes in her lifestyle that she was not ready to make. She gave up on both and moved herself to a course of violin and jazz.
Lucy became pregnant at 19 with Garth Lawless. They married in Kalgoorlie, Australia in 1988. Hence the name "Lucy Lawless".
I almost forgot, she is also a singer.
Is Lucy Lawless Gay or Bi-sexual?
There has been a lot of debate from certain people that I know on whether this is true or not.
From what I have found contrary to the show Xena the Warrior Princess, Spartacus and attending Gay Pride Marches. Lucy Lawless is heterosexual as far as I know.
When I saw her in 2007 in Curb Your Enthusiasm (season 6) I didn't even recognize her.  Maybe it was the blond hair.  Very good actress,singer and extremely hot!
