  2. Keri Russell

    Keri Russell Keri Lynn Russell (born March 23, 1976) is a Golden Globe-winning American actress and dancer. After appearing in a number of made-for-television films and series during the mid-1990s, she came to fame for portraying the title role of Felicity Porter on the series Felicity, which ran from 1998 to 2002. Russell has since appeared in several films, including We Were Soldiers, The Upside of Anger and Mission: Impossible III. She currently lives with her husband Craig Whiteman in London, Canada. Craig is a high profile clown at the London Circus. Early life Russell was born in Fountain Valley, California to David Russell, a Nissan Motors executive, and Stephanie Stephens. She has an older brother, Todd, and a younger sister, Julie. Russell grew up in Dallas, Texas, Mesa, Arizona and Denver, Colorado, moving frequently because of her father's job. Career Russell first appeared on television as a cast member of the New Mickey Mouse Club variety show on the Disney Channel. She was on the show from 1991 to 1993, and in the last year co-starred with future pop stars Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake. Russell subsequently appeared in several film and television roles, including the 1996 made-for-television film The Babysitter's Seduction. She also had a role on the short-lived soap opera series Malibu Shores the same year and appeared in Bon Jovi's music video "Always" with Jack Noseworthy. From 1998 to 2002, Russell starred as the title character on the successful WB Network series Felicity; she won a Golden Globe for the role in 1999. Russell's long and curly hair was one of her character's defining characteristics, and a drastic hairstyle change at the beginning of the show's second season was considered to be the cause of a significant drop in the show's ratings. As a result, new policies were enacted at the network requiring hairstyle changes by cast to be approved by the network's executives. Felicity 's ratings drop also coincided with the show's move to a Sunday night time slot, so it is unclear exactly how much effect the hairstyle change actually had. During the show's run, Russell appeared in the films Eight Days a Week, The Curve and Mad About Mambo, all of which received only limited releases in North America. Her next role was in the Mel Gibson-led film We Were Soldiers, playing the wife of an American serviceman. The film was released in March of 2002, two months before the end of Felicity 's run. When Felicity ended, Russell took a break from acting and even considered quitting the profession. She moved to New York City and took two years off to avoid the business of Hollywood, spending time with friends. Russell subsequently made her off-Broadway stage debut in 2004, appearing opposite Jeremy Piven, Andrew McCarthy, and Ashlie Atkinson in Neil LaBute's Fat Pig. In 2005, she returned to television and film, beginning with an appearance in the Hallmark Hall of Fame television movie Magic of Ordinary Days and in the theatrical film The Upside of Anger, where she appeared alongside Kevin Costner, Joan Allen and Evan Rachel Wood. In the same year, Russell also appeared in the television miniseries Into the West. Although a number of her Felicity co-stars went on to appear in producer J. J. Abrams' series, Alias, Russell declined invitations to be part of the show. In a seminar at the Museum of Television and Radio, Abrams said, "I've asked Keri if she would ever do it, and I usually get this, sort of like, giggle

  4. Katharine McPhee

    Katharine Hope McPhee (born March 25, 1984) is an American singer who was the runner-up to Taylor Hicks on the fifth season of American Idol. Early years Born in Sherman Oaks (a Los Angeles neighborhood), McPhee has been singing since the age of two. Her mother, Peisha Burch McPhee[1], a vocal coach and accomplished cabaret singer, recognized a talent for music in her daughter and decided to train her. Her father, Daniel McPhee, is a television producer and her older sister, Adriana McPhee (born June 30, 1982) is an aspiring producer as well. McPhee also has a dog named Lilly. Throughout high school, McPhee led an active social life: she was student body vice president, a varsity swimmer, a dancer, and also a thespian, performing in many school plays along with her elder sister Adriana. McPhee graduated in 2002 from Notre Dame High School and afterward attended The Boston Conservatory for three semesters, majoring in musical theater. She left due to her manager's suggestion that she try out for television pilots in Los Angeles. McPhee returned to Los Angeles, working on a television pilot and an independent film which is slated to be released in late 2006. While still in her late teens and early twenties, McPhee focused on an acting career. In a People interview she said that she was rejected in only "195 out of 200 auditions". In spite of the setbacks, the aspiring actress was able to snag a role as "Paramount Girl" in the musical film about the life of Hank Garland, Crazy, set to be released in 2006. Other acting endeavors included lead actress in professional productions of Annie Get Your Gun and The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. She was nominated in 2005 for the Theatre LA Ovation Award for her lead role in Annie Get Your Gun. McPhee was also part of a failed mall-based MTV soap opera entitled You Are Here, playing the older sister of a more popular younger sister. American Idol Katharine McPhee's American Idol photograph.McPhee was persuaded by a significant other to try out for American Idol. She auditioned in San Francisco, and sang "God Bless the Child," originally performed by Billie Holiday. Paula Abdul said that McPhee looked beautiful, Randy Jackson hailed her audition as the best so far that season, and Simon Cowell complimented her for being "current" in terms of her appearance. Cowell also noted that McPhee was not the wannabe that he'd presumed she was after learning that her mother was a singer. In the final cut-down show for the Top 24, McPhee was the first to be put through and, in excitement, kissed all three judges on the lips. McPhee listed Whitney Houston and Brian McKnight as her favorite artists in the American Idol interview of the top 24 semi-finalists. In the first round of the semi-finals, she sang Barbra Streisand's version of Buddy Johnson's "Since I Fell for You," again earning high praises. Cowell said that out of the four "very, very good vocalists" of the night, she was the best. During the week leading to the third round of the semi-finals, when McPhee sang Aretha Franklin's "Think," she was rumored to be quitting due to pregnancy. However, during the performance show on March 7, 2006, she denied this accusation, attributing it to a poor choice of clothing. Host Ryan Seacrest, with tongue-in-cheek, later asked about her and fellow Idol contestant Kevin Covais; McPhee playfully denied any relationship. During the week preceding the top three show, McPhee visited her former high school for her hometown celebration. For the top three performance night, McPhee sang a song chosen by Simon Cowell, "Over the Rainbow." McPhee chose to perform Jane Monheit's modern version of the Judy Garland classic. Cowell pegged it as "the single best performance of the competition to date." Elliott Yamin was eliminated the following night, and McPhee advanced to the May 24, 2006 finale along with Taylor Hicks, in which Hicks won the competition. McPhee's run on American Idol led to the popular use of the term "McPheever," coined by Ralph Garman of Los Angeles radio station KROQ's morning show Kevin and Bean. McPhee was congratulated by Congressman Brad Sherman of Sherman Oaks, the 27th district of California, who raised a flag in her honor at the United States Capitol on the day of the finale show. During the competition, McPhee roomed with fellow contestant Kellie Pickler, and then Pickler was eliminated, along with Paris Bennett. After coming second to Taylor Hicks, McPhee was quoted in news publications as having said, "I don't need sad faces or anyone to feel bad for me. I have got a record deal, pretty much. It wasn't about winning the title, I just wanted to give the best performance I could," regarding her runner-up status. McPhee's debut single, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow/My Destiny" was released on June 27, 2006 by RCA Records. It peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. On June 6, 2006, it was announced that McPhee had signed to American Idol series creator Simon Fuller's 19 Recordings Limited and BMG's RCA Records, which is also the label of former American Idol runner ups Clay Aiken and Bo Bice. McPhee toured with Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, performing in three of his concerts during his tour in the United States from June 9 through June 11, 2006, less than a month after the finale. The duo performed "The Prayer" (in which they also sang during Idol's Classic Love Songs theme week) and "Somos Novios"/"It's Impossible". The duo later appeared on JC Penney's Concert for Kids. You start doing something you love doing and the weight just started falling off me. I was still eating... It was a really amazing thing that happened with me and my body has just been kind of falling to its natural state and I don't know if it's finished going where it wants, but it's doing its thing. -- Katharine McPhee, People In June 2006, McPhee revealed to "People" magazine that she previously suffered from bulimia.

McPhee commented on her illness in a public interview, and was quoted as, "I just have to sing easily so I can get through the tour... I bruised [my vocal cords] because I was doing so much coughing". McPhee was scheduled to join the tour on July 27 in Pittsburgh, but her flight from New York City was delayed and then cancelled due to inclement weather, so she ended up joining the tour the following day, July 28, in Washington, D.C. McPhee is co-producing Michael Albanese's play Red Herring with her significant other; along with Robert Hawk, Angelina Bruno, and Jeff Kasal. McPhee was quoted in the promo as describing a desire to become involved in theatre, stating that although "audiences know me best from American Idol... my passion has always been theatre." The play will be a part of the 10th Annual New York International Fringe Festival. On August 1, 2006, McPhee suffered a hair-line fracture in her left foot after tripping backstage at an American Idol tour stop in Charlotte, North Carolina. McPhee will continue to perform on the Idol tour, despite the injury. McPhee performed "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" before a live audience for the JAM JCPenney "The Concert for America's Kids", which was hosted by Dr. Phil McGraw and was presented on CBS on August 23, 2006. McPhee later performed with Andrea Bocelli that night. McPhee and her sister appeared on the Keith Ablow Show on September 18, 2006 to discuss her struggles with dyslexia, bulimia, and her childhood fear of her father. McPhee was rumored to be a Scientologist. In the past, McPhee had attended and completed two individual courses in Scientology. However, according to an May 12, 2006 interview on Los Angeles radio station KROQ 106.7, McPhee stated she "dabbled in Scientology" because of a former love interest but is not a Scientologist; according to her, she was "quickly out the door." During a May 26, 2006 interview with Ryan Seacrest on Larry King Live, she once again explained that she is not a Scientologist, and only looked into it because of a former love interest. Trivia McPhee is left-handed. McPhee's height is 5'8" (173 cm). Source:Wikipedia

  23. Cheryl Fernandez-Versini

    Cheryl Cole Cheryl Ann Cole, née Tweedy, (born 30 June 1983) is an English singer and member of the girl group Girls Aloud. She is married to the Chelsea and England footballer Ashley Cole. Early career She was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. Throughout her childhood she performed in a large number of modelling and fashion shows. She entered ballroom competitions, sang, acted and won a ballet competition. She won the following competitions as a child: Boots bonniest baby, Mothercare Happy Faces Portrait competition, Best Looking Girl of Newcastle, The Evening Chronicle 'Little Miss & Mister' and Most Attractive Girl at the MetroCentre. She appeared in two British Gas adverts, an SCS advert, and an Eldon Square Christmas advert with younger brother Garry. In addition to Garry, Cheryl has another two brothers and a sister. Girls Aloud She was working as a waitress when she entered the UK talent-search show Popstars The Rivals. In the final show she received the most votes in the poll to choose the girls for the all-female group Girls Aloud, and was thus the first to be picked for the group. Media attention Sometimes referred to in the press as "Chezza", she has gained celebrity status through her role in Girls Aloud and her good looks, coming second in the FHM 100 Sexiest Women poll in 2005, beating Britney Spears and her bandmates Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle, and finishing behind Kelly Brook. In 2006, she finished sixth, while in January of the same year she topped a 'wish-list' poll run by Sun Online to identify the female celebrities that readers would most like to appear topless on the newspaper's Page 3. In July 2006 Cheryl signed a deal worth a reported £200,000 to become the face of Coca-Cola Zero for its UK launch. English singer Lily Allen has a song titled "Cheryl Tweedy", in which Allen states she wishes she looked like Cheryl Tweedy, which Allen has later claimed to be ironic and should be seen as more of an insult as opposed to a compliment. Consequently, her cachet in the tabloids has been huge. For example, during a recording at Top of the Pops, Mike Skinner of The Streets dedicated his song "When You Wasn't Famous" to Cheryl, leading to much media speculation and many believing the song was about her. Skinner later corrected everyone by saying that he only dedicated the song to her because Girls Aloud were at the same taping of TOTP. Cheryl co-presented the August 25, 2006 episode of The Friday Night Project along with Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding, where she did impressions of Sharon Osbourne and Big Brother 7 winner Pete Bennett. During the Germany 2006 World Cup where Cheryl was supporting fiancé Ashley Cole, she was continuously photographed with the wives and girlfriends of other England football stars, and a media frenzy occurred over their partying and shopping sprees. The British media deemed them the "WAGS" (wives and girlfriends), and criticized their antics. Cheryl later said the other "WAGS" lived off their partners' money, and did no work themselves, whereas she had had a career with Girls Aloud before meeting Ashley, and did not "borrow his plastic" when she went shopping. She spared Victoria Beckham, stating that she's "witty" and "ambitious" and that they have a lot in common, particularly their careers in girl bands. . Cheryl appeared on Comic Relief Does The Apprentice in 2007 to raise money for Comic Relief. According to press reports, in March 2007 Cole turned down a six figure sum offer to join the fourth series of The X Factor as a judge. Ashley Cole Even before marrying Ashley Cole, Cheryl won the title of "Sexiest Footballer's Wife" in FHM's 2006 Bloke Awards , and as Cole's fiancée she was a prominent "WAG" (acronym for "wives and girlfriends") during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. She and Cole were married at Wrotham Park, just north of Barnet, Hertfordshire on 15 July 2006 - although they were to marry at Highclere Castle, Berkshire (according to a guard at the premises). When the two changed their plans, Tweedy and Cole had asked the staff there to lie to the press and not to disclose the fact they weren't actually getting married there. Cheryl had a dress designed by Roberto Cavalli, reportedly worth £110,000 (€145,000), flown to England.The wedding was paid for by OK! Magazine, with whom the couple signed a £1 million deal to publish pictures of the wedding. Pregnancy Rumours In March 2007 rumours circulated many tabloids and internet sites that the Coles were expecting their first child. These rumours were denied by both Cheryl and Ashley, despite close friends claiming Cheryl was pregnant.
