Malin Maria ┼kerman (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈmɑːlɪn ˈoːkərˌman]; born May 12, 1978) is a SwedishľCanadian actress, singer and model. She was born in Stockholm, Sweden and moved to Canada at the age of two. As a child, she appeared in several television commercials before going on to win a modelling contract at age sixteen. ┼kerman's acting career began with her debut on the Canadian television series Earth: Final Conflict in 1997, after which she made appearances on several other Canadian productions. In the early 2000s, she had many television and film parts, including The Utopian Society (2003) and Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004). Following a supporting role on the short-lived comedy series The Comeback (2005), ┼kerman gained her first starring roles in the feature films The Heartbreak Kid (2007) and 27 Dresses (2008).



HIDE TEXT


 

┼kerman was cast as Silk Spectre II in the 2009 superhero film Watchmen, a role for which she was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress. The same year, she had supporting and starring roles in both The Proposal and Couples Retreat, two commercial hits that garnered mixed to negative reviews. In 2010, she became part of the main cast on the comedy series Childrens Hospital. Apart from acting and occasional modelling, ┼kerman served as the lead singer for the alternative rock band The Petalstones, but eventually left to focus on her acting career. She has been married to the band's drummer, Roberto Zincone, since 2007. The couple resides in Los Angeles, California.

 

Early life

┼kerman was born in Stockholm, Sweden to aerobics teacher and part-time model Pia (nÚe Sundstr÷m) and insurance broker Magnus ┼kerman.[1][2] When she was two, the family moved to Canada when her father was offered a job.[2] Four years later, her parents divorced, with her father moving back to Sweden.[1] Both of her parents remarried, giving ┼kerman one half-brother and two half-sisters.[1] After her mother remarried, they moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.[3] Later in her teenage years, her mother divorced again.[2] ┼kerman attended many different schools,[4] including Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in St. Catharines, Ontario.[5] She once attended a Catholic school, although being raised a Buddhist.[4] She has recalled some portions of her childhood as "painful", explaining that "I loved my father very much and I only got to see him during the school holidays. But I think it was an advantage that they split up when I was very young, so I could get used to it."[1] She visited her father in Falsterbo, Sweden during school breaks and talked to him regularly over the phone.[6][7] She cites her parents as "supportive, positive influences" in her life.[7]

As a child, ┼kerman had no plans to become an actress.[1] Her mother introduced her to modelling while she was still in primary school and she later landed several advertising campaign deals, but decided to stop at age twelve.[1] However, four years later she returned to modelling after her discovery by Ford Models in a shopping mall in St. Catharines.[1][7] She was signed to the agency and later won a contract with skincare company Noxzema.[7] She soon moved into an apartment in Toronto while attending North Toronto Collegiate Institute.[7] At age eighteen, she decided to become a child psychologist.[1] The decision was inspired by the "helplessness" she sometimes felt during her childhood.[3] She did modelling to afford her education, including a few television commercials and catalogue work.[8] She studied for a year at York University in Toronto, and was simultaneously offered guest roles on television from people who had seen her commercials.[8] She saw the acting gigs as opportunities to further pay for her education, but found herself enjoying it and decided to drop out of school to become an actress.[8] She moved to Los Angeles, California in 2001 to pursue her acting career full time.[9]

Career

1997ľ2008

┼kerman made her acting debut on the Canadian science fiction series Earth: Final Conflict in 1997, in smaller role as a robot.[10] She originally landed a role on an MTV pilot with Rachel McAdams, but the project was never picked up by the network.[8] In 2000, she guest starred on Relic Hunter and had a smaller role in the Canadian film The Skulls.[5] The following year, she made appearances on the Canada-based series Doc and Twice in a Lifetime.[11] In 2001, she moved to Los Angeles, California in hopes of pursuing a broader acting career.[3] At first, she worked as a waitress and stayed at a friend's house.[3][6] In 2003, she received smaller role in the film The Utopian Society.[5] The film was edited by Francesco Sondelli, who was the guitarist for alternative rock band Ozono.[11] Sondelli asked her to help the band out with song lyrics and later asked her to sing.[8] ┼kerman subsequently became the band's singer, and they changed their name to The Petalstones.[9][8] The band's debut album, Stung, was released in August 2005.[12] ┼kerman eventually left to focus on her acting career, and admits that she "actually can't sing".[1]

┼kerman at New York Fashion Week, September 2008

In 2004, she got a small role in the film Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,[5] but considered moving back to Canada as most of her auditions failed.[3] She was then cast in a supporting role as Juna on the short-lived HBO television series The Comeback, with Lisa Kudrow in the main role.[5] Kudrow played a former sitcom star who tried to restart her career.[13] ┼kerman's appearance on the show garnered media attention and resulted in her being offered more roles.[3] A year later, she guest starred on an episode of Love Monkey and two episodes of Entourage.[11] Before the Entourage episodes aired, she landed a role in the 2007 comedy film The Brothers Solomon.[14] The film was a box office bomb and received largely critical reviews.[15][16]

┼kerman signed up for a role opposite Ben Stiller in the comedy film The Heartbreak Kid, directed by the Farrelly Brothers, in 2006.[14] She played in the lead female role as Lila, the newly wedded wife of Stiller's part.[17] The film follows the couple's honeymoon in Mexico, where Stiller's part falls in love with another woman and realizes that the marriage was a mistake.[18] The film is a remake of the 1972 film of the same name, which was considered a "classic", and the directors had doubts about remaking it at first.[17] Released in October 2007, the film received generally poor reviews as critics deemed it "neither as daring nor as funny" as the directors' earlier films.[19] ┼kerman's performance garnered more positive reviews; Desson Thomson of The Washington Post called her a "fabulous comic partner" to Stiller,[18] while Roger Moore of Times Herald-Record felt that she outperformed him.[20] The film grossed $14 million in its opening weekend in the United States, and went on to gross $127 million globally.[21]

In 2007, ┼kerman joined the cast of 27 Dresses, a romantic comedy film directed by Anne Fletcher with Katherine Heigl in the lead role.[22] The film follows Heigl's character Jane, who has always been the bridesmaid and dreams of her own wedding. ┼kerman played Jane's sister Tess.[23] The film was shot during the summer of 2007,[24] and released in January 2008 to weak critical reception as it was considered "clichÚd and mostly forgettable".[25] The film was more successful commercially, with a gross of $160 million.[26] ┼kerman played the title role in Bye Bye Sally, a short film directed by Paul Leyden and based on Lisa Mannetti's short story Everybody Wins.[27] The film premiered at the 2009 Newport Beach Film Festival.[27]

2009ľ2011

In 2009, ┼kerman starred as Silk Spectre II in Zack Snyder's superhero film Watchmen, an adaption of Alan Moore's graphic novel of the same name.[28] The film is set in an alternate reality in 1985 where a group of retired vigilantes investigate an apparent conspiracy against them.[1][28] Snyder favoured ┼kerman over other more well-known actresses, as he felt that they could not play such a serious part.[29] ┼kerman rehearsed with "months of hardcore training" and went on a very strict diet.[9] She wore a brunette wig, high heels and an uncomfortable latex costume, which provided little protection when performing stunts, and she often bruised herself during filming.[29] ┼kerman believes her character carries the emotion of the film, as she is the only woman among several men.[30] Premiering in February 2009, the film received generally favourable reviews,[31] and was a commercial success, grossing $185 million worldwide.[32] Although ┼kerman was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress and a Teen Choice Award for her performance in the film,[33][34] critics were generally negative towards her acting.[35][36][37]

┼kerman appeared in the 2009 romantic comedy film The Proposal, starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in the lead roles.[38] ┼kerman played a supporting role as Gertrude, the ex-girlfriend of Reynolds' part.[39] Although the film received mixed reviews, it went on to gross $317 million worldwide.[40] Also in 2009, ┼kerman starred in the comedy film Couples Retreat, opposite Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn.[41] The film follows four couples as they travel to a tropical island resort for couples therapy.[41] ┼kerman played Ronnie, the wife of Vaughn's part.[42] She enjoyed playing a mother for the first time and tried to make her character as truthful as possible,[42] which included dying her hair brown to not look like a "blonde bombshell".[1] The film premiered in theatres in October 2009 and grossed $34 million in its opening weekend in the United States, entering number one at the box office, and totalled $171 million worldwide.[43] However, reception for the film was mainly negative, although ┼kerman's performance was met with more positive reactions.[44][45]

In 2010, ┼kerman co-starred as Annie in the Josh Radnor-directed comedy-drama film happythankyoumoreplease.[46] As her character has alopecia, ┼kerman shaved off her eyebrows and wore a bald cap to cover her hair.[47] She was originally offered a different part, but felt that she wanted to play Annie as it was different from her previous roles.[47] The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2010 and received an audience award for Favorite U.S. Drama.[46] Reviews from critics were polarized, but ┼kerman received praise.[48][49][50] In May 2010, she guest starred on the How I Met Your Mother episode "The Wedding Bride".[51] In August 2010, she joined the cast of the currently ongoing Adult Swim comedy series Childrens Hospital.[52] She plays the part of Dr. Valerie Flame, a promiscuous doctor in the hospital who serves as the series' narrator.[53] ┼kerman played a supporting role in the romantic comedy film The Romantics, with Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Anna Paquin.[54] The film premiered on September 10, 2010 on limited release.[55]

In 2010, she starred in the comedy film Elektra Luxx, opposite Carla Gugino and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film is a sequel to 2009's Women in Trouble.[56] ┼kerman played Trixie, an awkward drug store clerk who falls for Gordon-Levitt's part, who is obsessed with Gugino's character, a retired porn star.[57] The film premiered on March 11, 2011 on limited release and received generally unfavourable reviews; critics dismissed its many subplots and called it a "bizarre sex comedy".[58] ┼kerman starred in the lead female role in the film The Bang Bang Club, which follows a group of young photojournalists in South Africa during the final stages of the apartheid.[59] ┼kerman played Robin Comley, a newspaper photo editor.[60] The film premiered during the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival to mixed reviews from the press.[61][62] In 2010, ┼kerman signed up for a part in newcomer Aaron Harvey's Catch .44, a drama-thriller film with Forest Whitaker and Bruce Willis in the male lead roles.[63] The film premiered on limited release on December 9, 2011.[64]

[edit] Upcoming projects

┼kerman has a supporting role in the upcoming 2012 comedy film Wanderlust, with Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd.[65] The film focuses on an overworked couple who ends up at a nudist commune when they try to slow things down.[66] ┼kerman plays Eva, a woman at the commune.[66] ┼kerman will also star in the 2012 bank heist action film Medallion opposite Nicolas Cage.[67] She replaced Lindsay Lohan as Linda Lovelace in the upcoming film Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, based on the life of the late porn star.[68] In May 2011, it was confirmed that she had joined the cast of Rock of Ages as the journalist Constance Stack. The film, and the other projects Cottage Country, The Giant Mechanical Man and The Numbers Station, are set to be released in 2012.[69][70] ┼kerman has also been cast alongside Gary Oldman and Milo Ventimiglia in Cliff Dorfman's directorial debut, Criminal Empire for Dummies.[71] She is up for a role in Serpent Girl, based on Matthew Carnahan's book of the same name.[67]

Personal life

As ┼kerman was born in Sweden and grew up in Canada, she has "conflicting feelings" for the two countries.[9] In an interview with Toronto Star, she said, "Every time I'm in Canada I feel more Swedish, and every time I'm in Sweden I feel more Canadian. I belong in both places and I love them both equally."[9] She holds both Swedish and Canadian passports.[9] Apart from speaking fluent English and Swedish, she also speaks French and Spanish.[2][3] She describes herself as a feminist as she believes in equal treatment for both sexes, but also considers that "We [women] are different", adding that she "embrace[s] those differences."[1] She has revealed that she is dyslexic and said that it takes her "a long time" to learn her lines, saying "I get horrified when I have to do table reads with the whole cast, because thereĺs a lot of stuttering coming from me, so I have to do a lot of prep."[72] Because of this, she prefers to improvise her lines.[72]

┼kerman was raised a Buddhist,[8] which inspired the lotus flower tattoo on her upper back.[4] She also has a tattooed 'Z' on her right wrist, honouring her husband, Italian musician Roberto Zincone.[4] The two met in 2003 when ┼kerman was the lead singer for The Petalstones, for which Zincone served as the drummer.[1] After band practices, they usually socialized, using a dictionary as he could not speak English.[4] They eventually started dating and married at Grand Hotel Moon Valley in Sorrento, Italy on June 20, 2007.[1][6] The couple resides in Los Angeles, California.[11]

┼kerman is noted for frequently appearing in nude scenes in her films, such as The Heartbreak Kid and Watchmen.[73][74] She has stated that she feels comfortable as long as the scenes are not gratuitous.[75] In an interview with Daily Mail, she commented, "I spent a lot of time as a child in Sweden; itĺs natural there. [...] I don't know many women who go to bed with their husband at night and have sex with a bra on, do you? So let's make it real in the movies."[1] In 2008, she made her first appearance on AskMen's "99 Most Desirable Women" list at number sixty.[76] The same year, men's magazine Maxim placed her at number fifty-nine in their annual "Hot 100" rankings.[77] The following year, the magazine ranked her at number four.[78] Although admitting that sex appeal is one of the "best assets", ┼kerman considers being beautiful both "a blessing and a curse", stating; "I tend to get a lot of scripts in which people want me to play the trophy wife, which is frustrating because I want the interesting, meaty roles."[1]

[4] She has had her greatest commercial successes with the films Bruce Almighty (2003), The Break-Up (2006), Marley & Me (2008), Just Go with It (2011), and Horrible Bosses (2011).[5] Aniston has been selected for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012.[6]

 

Early life

Jennifer Aniston was born in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles[7] to actors John Aniston and Nancy Dow.[8] Her father is Greek and a native of Crete. Her mother was born in New York City of Scottish-Canadian and Italian descent. Aniston has two half-brothers, John Melick, her maternal older half-brother, and Alex Aniston, her younger paternal half-brother.[7][8] Aniston's godfather was actor Telly Savalas, one of her father's best friends.[7][8] As a child, Aniston lived in Greece for one year with her family. They later relocated to New York City.[8] Aniston attended the Rudolf Steiner School in New York,[9] and graduated from Manhattan's Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts.[7] She worked in Off Broadway productions such as For Dear Life and Dancing on Checker's Grave,[8] and supported herself with several part-time jobs, which included working as a telemarketer, waitress, and bike messenger.[8] In 1989, Aniston moved to Los Angeles, California.[10]

Career

Television

Aniston was cast in her first television role in 1990, starring as a regular on the short-lived series Molloy and in the TV movie Camp Cucamonga.[11] She also co-starred in Ferris Bueller, a television adaptation of the 1986 hit movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off.[11] The series, however, was quickly canceled.[8] Aniston then appeared in two more failed television comedy series, The Edge and Muddling Through, and guest-starred on Quantum Leap, Herman's Head, and Burke's Law.[11] After the string of canceled shows, along with her appearance in the critically derided 1992 horror film, Leprechaun,[12] Aniston reportedly considered giving up acting.[8]

Aniston's plans changed, however, after auditioning for Friends, a sitcom that was set to debut on NBC's 1994ľ1995 fall lineup.[7][13] The producers of the show originally wanted Aniston to audition for the role of Monica Geller,[13] but Courteney Cox was considered to be better suited to the role. Thus, Aniston was cast as Rachel Green. She was also offered a spot as a featured player on Saturday Night Live, but turned it down to do Friends.[14] She played the character of Rachel from 1994 until the show ended in 2004.[15][16]

The program was successful and Aniston, along with her co-stars, gained world-wide reputation among television viewers.[7] Aniston received a salary of $1 million per episode for the last two seasons of Friends, as well as five Emmy nominations (two for Supporting Actress, three for Lead Actress),[17][18][19][20] including a win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.[21] According to the Guinness World Book of Records (2005), Aniston (along with her female costars) became the highest paid TV actress of all time with her $1 million-per-episode paycheck for the tenth season of Friends.[22]

In 2007, Aniston guest starred in an episode of Courteney Cox Arquette's series Dirt, playing Arquette's rival, Tina Harrod.[23] She appeared in the third episode of Season 3 of NBC's 30 Rock playing Liz Lemon's old college roommate who stalks Jack Donaghy.[24] On July 16, 2009, Aniston received an Emmy nomination in the category of Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on 30 Rock. Aniston was a guest star on the Season 2 premiere of ABC's sitcom Cougar Town, playing a psychiatrist.[25]

Film

While appearing on Friends, Aniston also started segueing into film roles. She made her film debut in 1992's Leprechaun, which was negatively reviewed by critics, but was commercially successful and gained a cult following. Following a four year hiatus from cinema, Aniston returned to film work in 1996, when she played supporting roles in the independent films Dream for an Insomniac, and She's the One, alongside Edward Burns and Cameron Diaz. Aniston's first starring vehicle was the film Picture Perfect (1997), in which she starred opposite Kevin Bacon and Jay Mohr. While the film received mixed reviews, Aniston's performance was more warmly received, with many critics suggesting that she had screen presence.[26] During the second half of the 1990s she starred in several films such as the ensemble romantic film 'Til There Was You (1997) with Dylan McDermott and Sarah Jessica Parker, The Thin Pink Line (1998), the animated feature The Iron Giant (1999), and the critically acclaimed comedy Office Space (1999). She gained critical acclaim for her performances in The Object of My Affection (1998), a comedy-drama about a woman who falls for a gay man (played by Paul Rudd),[27] and in the low-budget 2002 film The Good Girl, playing an unglamorous cashier in a small town. The latter film opened in relatively few theatersŚunder 700 in totalŚtaking $14M in the U.S. box office.[28]

Aniston's biggest box office success to date was her appearance in 2003's Bruce Almighty, in which she played the live-in girlfriend of Jim Carrey's title character.[29] Aniston then starred in the 2004 film Along Came Polly opposite Ben Stiller.[30] In late 2005, Aniston appeared in two major studio films, Derailed and Rumor Has Itů.[31][32] In 2006, Aniston appeared in the low-budget drama Friends with Money, which was first shown at the Sundance Film Festival and received a limited release.[33] Aniston's next film, The Break-Up, which was released on June 2, grossed approximately $39.17 million during its opening weekend, despite lukewarm reviews.[34] In 2006, Aniston directed a hospital emergency room-set short film called Room 10, starring Robin Wright Penn and Kris Kristofferson as part of Glamour's Reel Moments film series.[35] Aniston noted that she was inspired to direct by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who also directed a short film in 2006.[36]

On December 25, 2008, Marley & Me, in which Aniston starred alongside Owen Wilson, was released. It set a record for the largest Christmas Day box office ever with $14.75 million in ticket sales.

The movie made $27.5 million, ranking #1 at the box office in its opening weekend.[39] While the film received mixed reviews, Aniston, along with Affleck, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Jennifer Connelly, were often praised by critics as being the stand-outs in the film.[40][41]

In March 2010, Aniston appeared in The Bounty Hunter, which costarred Gerard Butler. While the film received scathing reviews from critics, it was a modest box office success, garnering over $130 million worldwide.[42] A lukewarm box-office reception greeted her next film, The Switch, in which she co-starred with Jason Bateman. The film's opening weekend drew what The Hollywood Reporter dubbed "a dispiriting $8.4 million".[43] The film received generally mixed reviews, with review site Metacritic showing 13 out of 30 critics delivering a positive verdict.[44]

By June 20, 2010, Aniston's movies had grossed more than $1 billion in the United States and over $1.7 billion worldwide.[45] Aniston's Just Go with It, with Adam Sandler,[46] was released on Valentine's Day weekend in 2011.[47] The story is about a plastic surgeon, played by Sandler, who asks his office manager, played by Aniston, to pose as his wife, to prove his honesty to his much younger girlfriend, played by Brooklyn Decker.[48] Also in 2011, Aniston starred in the comedy movie Horrible Bosses, with Colin Farrell, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jamie Foxx, directed by Seth Gordon. The film focuses on a trio of employees who plot to murder their titular tyrannical supervisors. Aniston played one of the bosses, a sexually aggressive dentist who harasses Charlie Day's character.[49]

Aniston dated her Ferris Bueller TV costar Charlie Schlatter in 1990, and briefly dated musician Adam Duritz in 1995. From 1995 to 1998, she was romantically involved with actor Tate Donovan[76] and the couple were reportedly engaged.

In May 1998, she began dating actor Brad Pitt. They married on July 29, 2000, in a private wedding ceremony in Malibu.[77] For a few years, their marriage was considered the rare Hollywood success.[8] However, the couple announced their separation on January 6, 2005.[76] Pitt and Aniston were seen together publicly after announcing their separation, even at a dinner party for Aniston's 36th birthday, and friends of the couple had declared they were reconciling.[78] Aniston, however, filed for divorce on March 25, 2005.[2] It was finalized on October 2, 2005.[79] During this period there was intense speculation in the media that Pitt had been unfaithful to Aniston with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie.[80]

In the following months, the public's reaction towards the divorce was reported in the press. The story became the headline news of media shows such as Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood, and made the front-pages of tabloid magazines for years, continuing till this day. 'Team Aniston' and 'Team Jolie' T-shirts appeared, with 'Team Aniston' shirts out-selling the 'Team Jolie' shirts 4:1.[80] Aniston revealed that her divorce prompted her to reach out to her mother, Nancy, from whom she was estranged for nearly a decade. They initially became estranged when Nancy spoke about her daughter on a television show and later wrote a book entitled, From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir (1999).[81][82] Aniston has also stated she was devastated by the death of her longtime therapist, whose work helped make her separation from Pitt easier.[36] 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."[83]

Aniston and Pitt's former Santa Barbara residence

After her divorce, Aniston began a relationship with actor Vince Vaughn, with whom she costarred in The Break-Up. Relationship troubles were reported in September 2006, followed by a confirmed split in December of that year.[76] She dated British model Paul Sculfor for a few months in 2007.[84] In February 2008, she began dating singer John Mayer.[76] The couple broke up in August, but they resumed the relationship in October before splitting again in March 2009.

In May 2011, Aniston began a relationship with Justin Theroux. She has since sold her Beverly Hills mansion in July 2011 for $38 million. She is currently renting a modest two bedroom home in the Hollywood Hills. [85]

Aniston has had two septoplasties to correct her deviated septumŚone which was incorrectly done in 1994 and the second in January 2007.[86]

Aniston is the godmother of Coco Riley Arquette, the daughter of her good friends, actors Courteney Cox and David Arquette.[87]

In 2007, Forbes rated Aniston as one of the top 10 richest women in entertainment and estimated her net worth to be about $110 million.[88]

In the media

Forbes listed Aniston as the 10th richest woman in the entertainment industry for 2007. Aniston was also included in the annual Star Salary Top 10 of trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter for 2006.[89] According to Forbes, in October 2007, Aniston was the top-selling celebrity face of the entertainment industry.[90] She was also Hollywood's most profitable actress. Aniston has been on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, based on "earnings and fame", every year since 2001, topping the list in 2003.[91] For the year of 2008, Forbes listed Aniston's earnings as $27 million.[92]

In 2005, Aniston became the first-ever GQ Woman of the Year. She has appeared on People's annual list of The Most Beautiful every year since 1995, and came in at #1 in 2004. She also topped the magazine's Best Dressed List in 2006. She has been a regular on FHMs 100 Sexiest Women list since 1996, ranking at #81 in 2010, #24 in 2009 and #27 in 2008.[93] In 2011 The Telegraph reported the most sought after body parts of the rich and famous revealed by two Hollywood plastic surgeons who carried out a survey among their patients to build up the picture of what the perfect woman would look like. Under the category of the most sought after body shape Aniston was voted in the top three alongside Gisele Bundchen and Penelope Cruz.[94] In the same year, readers of Men's Health magazine voted Aniston the "Sexiest Woman of All Time".[95]

Although Aniston disliked the hairstyle she wore during her first two years on Friends, "The Rachel" became and remains very popular among women.[2]

Margaret Grace Denig (born September 21, 1983), best known as Maggie Grace, is an American actress. Originally from Worthington, Ohio, she dropped out of high school to move to Los Angeles with her mother after her parents' divorce. While struggling financially, she landed her first role as the title character in the web-based video series Rachel's Room in 2001. She went on to earn a Young Artist Award nomination in 2002 with her portrayal of 15-year-old murder victim Martha Moxley in the television movie Murder in Greenwich.

In 2004, Grace was cast as Shannon Rutherford in the television series Lost, on which she was a main cast member for the first two seasons, winning a Screen Actors Guild Award shared with the ensemble cast. Leaving the series, Grace was keen to work more prominently in film having starred opposite Tom Welling in The Fog in 2005. She appeared in Suburban Girl, The Jane Austen Book Club (both 2007), and Taken (2008). She has the lead role of Alice in Malice in Wonderland, a modern take on Lewis Carroll's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Grace reprised the role of Shannon in two more episodes of Lost, including the series finale.

Early life

Grace was born Margaret Grace Denig in Worthington, Ohio,[1] the second of three children to parents Valinn and Rick Denig, who ran a family jewelry business.[2] Her family lived in a 200-year-old house, the first saltbox house in central Ohio.[3] She attended Worthington Christian Schools from kindergarten through ninth grade and briefly attended Thomas Worthington High School,[4] where she began acting in school plays and community theater,[5] including a Jewish Community Center's Gallery Players' 2000 production of The Crucible.[6] Her parents divorced "amicably" when she was 16 years old, but her mother sought a "fresh start".[1] Grace dropped out of high school to move to Los Angeles, California with her mother, while her younger siblings Ian and Marissa continued to live with their father.[2] In Los Angeles, Grace and her mother moved around often as they struggled financially, taking out short-term rents rather than paying for permanent residence while eating a basic diet, as it was all they could afford.[1][7]

Career

"I went to audition after audition. I landed a few bit parts; nothing substantial, but LA taught me to grow up ... I was lucky I never got hooked into anything, but I saw the drugs, the partying. I come from a small, religious town with Midwestern values and Hollywood was a real eye-opener for me."

Grace at the Tribeca Film Festival, April 2008

Grace acquired an agent within a week of relocating to Los Angeles and enrolled in acting classes.[citation needed] She landed her first role in Rachel's Room, a 2001 web-based video series about the affairs inside a teenage girl's bedroom that was created by Dawson's Creek executive producer Paul Stupin.[8] Her next role was on the 2002 television series Septuplets, which was cancelled before the first episode had aired.[2] Her breakout role was on 2002's television movie Murder in Greenwich, based on the true story of 15-year-old Martha Moxley's murder.[1] She was nominated for a Young Artist Award for her portrayal of Moxley in the Best Performance in a TV Movie, Miniseries or Special ľ Leading Young Actress category, but lost to Clara Bryant for Tru Confessions.[9] She went on to feature in minor roles on the television series CSI: Miami, The Lyon's Den, Miracles, Like Family, Cold Case and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and the films Twelve Mile Road and Creature Unknown, before appearing in 2011's semi hit Zookeeper with Kevin James.[4]

In mid-2004, Grace's agent sent her the script for the pilot episode of Lost; she was given the role of Shannon Rutherford after a successful audition.[1][2] She was nominated in 2005 for a Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Breakout Performance ľ Female for her role on Lost, but lost to Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria.[10] She lived in Hawaii during the filming of the show's first season, and signed on to star opposite Tom Welling in The Fog,[1] a 2005 remake of the 1980 horror film of the same name, as a character originally played by Jamie Lee Curtis.[11] Though the filming of Lost was supposed to have ended before The Fog began, the productions coincided due to Lost's extended season finale[5] and Grace flew between the two sets, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu and on Bowen Island in British Columbia, Canada.[3] After ranking at #27 on Maxim's Hot 100 list of 2005,[12] she returned for Lost's second season. Her character was killed off the series in the season's eighth episode, "Collision" when the series' writers began to feel that the character's "story avenues [were] limited". Executive producer Carlton Cuse said that Grace's departure from the show was "sort of a win-win" as she was eager to enter a full-time career in film.[13] After leaving the series, she nevertheless joined the other principal Lost cast members of season 2 onstage at the 12th Screen Actors Guild Awards where Lost won the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.[14]

Variety reported in May 2005 that Grace was in negotiations to play X-Men character Kitty Pryde in the 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand,[15] but in July, auditions were reportedly being held for her replacement.[16] The role ultimately went to Ellen Page,[17] and Grace later revealed that she had never been contacted about the role and was surprised to read that she was up for the part in question.[18] Grace's next role was in the 2007 independent film Suburban Girl, alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alec Baldwin.[19] In 2007, she starred in The Jane Austen Book Club, based on Karen Joy Fowler's novel of the same name. She is a fan of Jane Austen and had read Fowler's novel when it was released in 2004. When she was given the film's script, she met with the director Robin Swicord, with whom she says she "geeked out", and was given the role of Allegra, an openly lesbian 20-year-old.[20] After the filming of The Jane Austen Book Club was completed, Grace briefly returned to Hawaii to shoot a guest spot on the Lost season 3 episode "ExposÚ".[20] She starred in the 2008 thriller film Taken with Liam Neeson, who was at the top of a list of male actors Grace wished to work with that she had written just two months before she was cast.[21] She recently played the lead in Simon Fellows' Malice in Wonderland, a modern adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.[22] In 2010, Grace starred in the drama Flying Lessons,[23] and appeared opposite Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz in James Mangold's film Knight and Day,[24] as well as in Faster, with Dwayne Johnson.[25] Grace's busy schedule prevented her from returning as Shannon in "LA X", the season premiere for Lost's sixth and final season,[26] but she eventually returned for the series finale "The End".[27] On September 2010, it was revealed that Grace was chosen to play Irina in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.[28]

Personal life

Grace lived in Honolulu, Hawaii while working on Lost, saying "I love it here, but it's not a place you can really pursue acting."[29] She claimed that, while living in Hawaii, her Lost co-stars would introduce her to men and that some "would probably have me with a different guy every night." She said that her male co-stars were "mostly very protective" and "very opinionated" when deciding whether she should date certain men;[30] actor Josh Holloway once offered to help her select dates from a portfolio of male models with whom he previously worked.[2] Grace and Ian Somerhalder, her onscreen stepbrother, were rumored to be dating in April 2006 after both had left Lost.[31] When asked about Somerhalder in August, she stated, "Ian's great, I adore him, although I'm only 22 ľ far too young to even think about having a serious relationship."[1] While still working on Lost, Grace and Somerhalder adopted a feral cat named Roo which they found "literally dying" in the jungle on the set. She said that the cat is now her "travel buddy."[32] In 2008 and 2009, she dated Blake Mycoskie, a contestant on the second season of The Amazing Race and founder of TOMS Shoes.[33]

Grace says that the person she is most inspired by is her mother. When asked about her closest friend, she said that she and her mother were more like sisters and that she is "lucky to have an exceptionally cool mum."[7] She is a self-proclaimed anglophile, having written to a pen pal in the Lake District from the age of eight, having first visited England at 13 years old, and admiring a number of British poets as well as William Shakespeare.[34] She calls herself very clumsy, claiming to "trip over my legs all the time,"[35] and was jokingly nicknamed "Maggie Graceless" by one of her former castmates.[36] She plays in a Los Angeles kickball league with her friends.[36]
