Julia Fiona Roberts (born October 28, 1967) is an American actress. She became a Hollywood star after headlining the romantic comedy Pretty Woman (1990), which grossed $464 million worldwide. After receiving Golden Globe Awards and Academy Award nominations for Steel Magnolias (1989) and Pretty Woman, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Erin Brockovich (2000).




HIDE TEXT


Her films The Pelican Brief (1993), My Best Friend's Wedding (1997), Mystic Pizza (1988), Notting Hill (1999), Runaway Bride (1999), Ocean's Eleven (2001), Ocean's Twelve (2004), Charlie Wilson's War (2007), Valentine's Day (2010) and Mirror Mirror (2012) have collectively brought box office receipts of over $2.6 billion, making her one of the most successful actresses in terms of box office receipts.[1]

Roberts had become one of the highest-paid actresses in the world, topping The Hollywood Reporter's annual "power list" of top-earning female stars from 2005 to 2006. Her fee for 1990's Pretty Woman was $300,000;[2] in 2003, she was paid an unprecedented $25 million for her role in Mona Lisa Smile (2003). As of 2010, Roberts's net worth was estimated to be $140 million.[3]

Roberts has been named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" eleven times, tied with Halle Berry. In 2011, she was named one of the "100 Hottest Women of All-Time" by Men's Health.[4] In 2001, Ladies Home Journal ranked her as the 11th most powerful woman in the United States.[5]

Early life and family

Roberts was born in Atlanta, Georgia, at Crawford Long Hospital (now Emory University Hospital Midtown), to Betty Lou (née Bredemus) and Walter Grady Roberts.[6][7] She is of English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, German, and Swedish descent.[8][9] Her father was a Baptist and her mother a Roman Catholic,[10] and she was raised Catholic.[11][12] Her older brother, Eric Roberts (from whom she was estranged until 2004), sister, Lisa Roberts Gillan, and niece, Emma Roberts, are also actors.

Julia's parents, one-time actors and playwrights, met while performing theatrical productions for the armed forces. They later co-founded the Atlanta Actors and Writers Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia, off Juniper Street in Midtown. While her mother was pregnant with Julia, she and her husband ran an acting school for children in Decatur, Georgia. The children of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King attended the school; Yolanda Denise King worked closely with Walter Roberts as her acting coach.[13] As a thank-you for their service, Mrs. King paid the hospital bill when Julia's mother gave birth to Julia.[14]

Julia's mother filed for divorce in 1971 with the divorce being finalized early in 1972.[15] Roberts lived in Smyrna, in 1972, where she attended Fitzhugh Lee Elementary School, Griffin Middle School, and Campbell High School.[16] Her mother married Michael Motes and had a daughter, Nancy Motes, in 1976. Julia's father died of cancer when she was ten.[17]

Roberts wanted to be a veterinarian as a child.[18] She played clarinet in the band in school.[19][20] After graduating from Smyrna's Campbell High School, she headed to New York to pursue a career in acting. Once there, she signed with the Click Modeling Agency and enrolled in acting classes.[21][22]

Career

1987–1989

Roberts made her first big screen appearance in the film Satisfaction (1988), released on February 12, 1988, alongside Liam Neeson and Justine Bateman, as a band member looking for a summer gig. She had previously performed a small role opposite her brother, Eric, in Blood Red (she has two words of dialogue), filmed in 1987 and released in 1989. Her first television appearance was as a juvenile rape victim in the initial season of the series Crime Story with Dennis Farina, in the episode titled "The Survivor", broadcast on February 13, 1987. Her first critical success with moviegoers was her performance in the independent film Mystic Pizza in 1988;[23] that same year, she had a role in the fourth season finale of Miami Vice. In 1989, she was featured in Steel Magnolias, as a young bride with diabetes, and received both her first Academy Award nomination (as Best Supporting Actress) and first Golden Globe Award win (Motion Picture Best Supporting Actress) for her performance.[23]

Roberts in 1990

1990–2000

Roberts became known to worldwide audiences when she co-starred with Richard Gere in the Cinderella/Pygmalionesque story, Pretty Woman, in 1990.[23] Roberts won the role after Michelle Pfeiffer, Molly Ringwald, Meg Ryan, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Karen Allen, and Daryl Hannah (her co-star in Steel Magnolias) all turned it down.[24] The role also earned her a second Oscar nomination, this time as Best Actress, and second Golden Globe Award win, as Motion Picture Best Actress (Musical or Comedy).[23] Her next box office success was the thriller Sleeping with the Enemy, playing a battered wife who escapes her abusive husband, played by Patrick Bergin, and begins a new life in Iowa. She played Tinkerbell in Steven Spielberg's Hook in 1991, and also played a nurse in the 1991 film, Dying Young. This work was followed by a two-year hiatus, during which she made no films other than a cameo appearance in Robert Altman's The Player (1992). In early 1993, she was the subject of a People magazine cover story asking, "What Happened to Julia Roberts?"[25] She was offered the role of Annie Reed in Sleepless in Seattle (1993), but turned it down.[26]

Roberts co-starred with Denzel Washington in The Pelican Brief (1993), based on John Grisham's 1992 novel of the same name.[23] In 1996, she appeared in season 2 of Friends (episode 13 "The One After the Superbowl"). Roberts recorded her scenes from January 6–8, 1996.[27] She had a relationship with cast member Matthew Perry at the time,[28][29][30][31] and an audience member said about their on-screen kiss, "Julia looked at Matt and said 'I'm glad we rehearsed this over the weekend'."[32] She was offered the role of Lucy Eleanor Moderatz in While You Were Sleeping (1995), but also turned it down.[26]

Roberts co-starred with Liam Neeson in Michael Collins (1996).[23] Over the next few years, she starred in Stephen Frears' Mary Reilly (1996), followed by My Best Friend's Wedding in 1997. In 1998, she appeared on Sesame Street opposite the character Elmo, demonstrating her ability to change emotions. She was offered the role of Viola de Lesseps in Shakespeare in Love (1998), but turned it down.[26] She starred with Hugh Grant in Notting Hill (1999). That same year she also starred in Runaway Bride, her second film with Richard Gere. Roberts was a guest star on the Law & Order television series episode "Empire" with series regular Benjamin Bratt (at that time her boyfriend). She earned an nomination for Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.[33] Also in 1999 she starred in the critically panned film Stepmom (1998) alongside Susan Sarandon.[34]

Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Andy García, and Roberts with Ocean's Eleven director, Steven Soderbergh in December 2001

2001–2005

In 2001 Roberts received the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Erin Brockovich, who helped wage a successful lawsuit against energy giant Pacific Gas & Electric. While presenting the Best Actor Award to Denzel Washington the following year she made a gaffe, saying she was glad that Tom Conti wasn't there. She meant the conductor, Bill Conti, who had tried to hasten the conclusion of her Oscar speech the previous year, but instead named the Scottish actor.[35] Roberts teamed with Erin Brockovich director Steven Soderbergh for three more films: Ocean's Eleven (2001), Full Frontal (2002), Mona Lisa Smile (2003), and Ocean's Twelve (2004). Later in 2001 she starred in the road gangster comedy, The Mexican, giving her a chance to work with long-time friend, Brad Pitt. In 2005 she was featured in the music video for the hit single "Dreamgirl" by the Dave Matthews Band; it was her first music video appearance.[36]

2006–present

Roberts had two films released in 2006, The Ant Bully and Charlotte's Web. Both films were animated features for which she provided voice acting. Her next film was Charlie Wilson's War (2007), with Tom Hanks and Philip Seymour Hoffman, directed by Mike Nichols and based on the book by former CBS journalist George Crile; it was released on December 21, 2007. Fireflies in the Garden (2008), also starring Ryan Reynolds and Willem Dafoe, was released at the Berlin International Film Festival in February 2008 and was subsequently shown in European cinemas; it did not get a North American release until 2011.

Roberts made her Broadway debut on April 19, 2006 as Nan in a revival of Richard Greenberg's 1997 play Three Days of Rain opposite Bradley Cooper and Paul Rudd. Although the play grossed nearly US$1 million dollars in ticket sales during its first week[37] and was a commercial success throughout its limited run, her performance drew criticism. Ben Brantley of The New York Times described Roberts as being fraught with "self-consciousness (especially in the first act) [and] only glancingly acquainted with the two characters she plays."[38] Brantley also criticized the production of "Greenberg's slender, elegant play," writing that “it's almost impossible to discern its artistic virtues from this wooden and splintered interpretation, directed by Joe Mantello."[38] Writing in The New York Post, Clive Barnes declared, "Hated the play. To be sadly honest, even hated her. At least I liked the rain—even if three days of it can seem an eternity." [39] Three Days of Rain received two Tony Award nominations in stagecraft categories. In 2009, Lancôme announced that Roberts would become their global ambassador for their company.[40] Julia starred with Clive Owen in the comedy-thriller Duplicity for which she received her seventh Golden Globe nomination. In 2010, she appeared in the ensemble romantic comedy Valentine's Day, with Cooper, and starred in the film adaptation of Eat Pray Love. Eat Pray Love[41] had the highest debut at the box office for Roberts in a top-billed role since America's Sweethearts.[42] Later in the year, she signed a five-year extension with Lancôme for GB£32 million (US$50 million).[43] In 2011, she co-starred as Mercedes Tainot opposite Tom Hanks who directed and played the title role in the romantic comedy Larry Crowne.[44] The movie has received generally bad reviews with only 35% of the 175 Rotten Tomatoes reviews giving it high ratings,[45] although Roberts's comedic performance was praised.[46] Roberts appeared in the 2012 Tarsem Singh adaptation of Snow White, called Mirror Mirror, playing the Evil Queen.[47]

American Girl films

Roberts has brought to life some of the books from American Girl as films, serving as executive producer alongside her sister Lisa. The company's product lines and services are focused on pre-teen-girl characters from various periods of American history, embodied as dolls and featured in narratives including books and movies. Roberts has produced four movies.[48]

Julia Roberts in Paris, September 2010

Roberts has reportedly had romantic relationships with actors Jason Patric, Liam Neeson, Dylan McDermott, and Matthew Perry.[49][50] She was briefly engaged to actor Kiefer Sutherland; they broke up three days before their scheduled wedding on 11 June 1991. On June 25, 1993, she married country singer Lyle Lovett; the wedding took place at St. James Lutheran Church in Marion, Indiana.[51] They separated in March 1995 and subsequently divorced.[52] From 1998 to 2001, Roberts dated actor Benjamin Bratt.[53]

Roberts and her present husband, cameraman Daniel Moder, met on the set of her film The Mexican in 2000, while she was still dating Bratt. At the time, Moder was married to Vera Steimberg. He filed for divorce a little over a year later, and after it was finalized, he and Roberts wed on July 4, 2002, at her ranch in Taos, New Mexico.[54] Together, they have three children: twins Hazel Patricia Moder and Phinnaeus "Finn" Walter Moder (b. 2004) and Henry Daniel Moder (b. 2007).[55]

Beliefs

Roberts disclosed in a 2010 interview for Elle magazine that she believes in and practices Hinduism.[56][57][58] Roberts is a devotee of Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji). A picture of Neem Karoli Baba drew Roberts to Hinduism.[59]

Charities

Roberts has given her time and resources to UNICEF as well as to other charitable organizations. On May 10, 1995, Roberts arrived in Port-au-Prince, as she said, "to educate myself".[60][61] The poverty she found was overwhelming. "My heart is just bursting", she said.[60] UNICEF officials hoped that her six-day visit would trigger an outburst of giving: $10 million in aid was sought at the time.[60][61]

In 2000, Roberts narrated Silent Angels, a documentary about Rett syndrome, a neurodevelopmental disorder, which was shot in Los Angeles, Baltimore and New York. The documentary was designed to help raise public awareness about the disease. In July 2006, Earth Biofuels announced Roberts as a spokeswoman for the company and as chair of the company's newly formed Advisory Board promoting the use of renewable fuels.

John Stephen Goodman[1] (born June 20, 1952)[2] is an American film, television, and stage actor. He is best known for his role as Dan Conner on the television series Roseanne (1988–1997), for which he won a Best Actor Golden Globe Award in 1993, and for providing the voice of Sulley in Monsters, Inc.




HIDE TEXT


 

Other prominent roles he has portrayed include his leading voice role in Frosty Returns, his recent supporting roles in Argo, Flight, and The Artist, and a cameo in C.H.U.D. As a film actor, he has frequently collaborated with the Coen Brothers, including in Raising Arizona, Barton Fink, The Big Lebowski, and O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Early life

Goodman was born in St. Louis, Missouri. His mother, Virginia Roos (née Loosmore), was a store clerk and waitress who worked at Jack and Phil's Bar-B-Que, while his father, Leslie F. Goodman, was a postal worker who died of a heart attack in 1954.[2][1][3] He has a sister, Elisabeth Horvath, and a brother, Leslie.[4] He is of English, Welsh, and German ancestry.[3]

Goodman went to Affton High School, where he played football and dabbled in theater. He won a football scholarship to Southwest Missouri State University, now Missouri State University.[5] He pledged to Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, but was not formally initiated until several years later. He discovered Southwest Missouri's drama program and studied there with actors Kathleen Turner and Tess Harper.[6] After a college injury ended his football career, he decided to become a professional actor, and left Missouri for New York in 1975.[5]

With a small bankroll from his brother, Goodman found an apartment on Ninth Avenue and 51st Street near Manhattan's Theater District and attempted unsuccessfully to earn money as a bartender and waiter. He was soon to find modest success on stage, though, in commercials and in voiceover performances. He was the person who slapped himself in the commercial for Skin Bracer by Mennen, saying the famous line "Thanks ... I needed that!".[6] He performed off-Broadway and in dinner theatres, before landing character roles in movies during the early 1980s.[5]

Career

In 1985, Goodman originated the role of Pap Finn in the Broadway musical Big River. For his role, he received a Drama Desk nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Musical; he also is featured on the Original Broadway Cast Recording. He had a long history of appearances on late night comedy shows, and was the first guest on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, which won him the show's "First Guest Medal" (Goodman joked that he would pawn the medal for a bottle of cheap Scotch).[citation needed] He has hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live 12 times, while also making seven cameo appearances as Linda Tripp during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.[5] Goodman auditioned to be a cast member for Jean Doumanian's tumultuous 1980–1981 SNL season, but was rejected.[citation needed]

Goodman on the red carpet at the Emmys, September 11, 1994

In 1982, Goodman started landing movie roles, beginning with a small role in Eddie Macon's Run. During this period he continued to work on the stage, starring in the Tony-winning Broadway musical Big River from 1985 to 1987. He landed his big break into movies in 1986, when he had a significant comedic role in the David Byrne absurdist comedy/musical True Stories.[7] In that film, his character Louis Fyne memorably utters the line: "I'm 6' 3" and maintain a consistent panda bear shape", establishing his trademark size as an important part of many characters he would later play on film and stage. He is also known for his role as the head football coach for Adams College in the movie Revenge of the Nerds. In 1997, John Goodman was added to the St. Louis Walk of Fame.[8]

He first worked with the Coen Brothers on Raising Arizona (1987). He would go on to appear in their films Barton Fink (1991), The Big Lebowski (1998), and O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000). In 2011, it was announced he would return to working with them on Inside Llewyn Davis—his fifth film with them and his first for a decade.[9] Only Steve Buscemi has appeared in more Coen works (six films), though Frances McDormand and Jon Polito have also appeared in five of their films.[10]

Goodman is most famous for his role as Dan Conner on the American sitcom Roseanne, which aired on ABC from 1988 to 1997.[5]

Goodman had guest roles on the Aaron Sorkin television dramas The West Wing and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. In the former he appeared in four episodes, playing Speaker of the House and eventual President Glen Allen Walken. In the latter, he appeared as Pahrump, Nevada Judge Robert Bebe, earning a 2007 Emmy[11] for Outstanding Guest Actor – Drama Series for his performance.[12] In addition, Goodman starred as Fred Flintstone in the Flintstones movie.[8]

He voiced Robot Santa in the character's first appearance on Futurama. Beginning in 2007, Goodman has been the voiceover in Dunkin' Donuts commercials.[13]

He appeared as a federal judge in the 1999 HBO production, The Jack Bull, bringing some semblance of order and justice to the story. He also appeared in the 2000 motion picture Coyote Ugly. In 2000, Goodman provided the voice of Pacha in the Disney film The Emperor's New Groove and, a year later, the voice of Sulley in the Disney/Pixar film Monsters, Inc.

In 2007, Goodman starred as the antagonist in the movie Evan Almighty (directed by Tom Shadyac), opposite Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman.

A recent project was the film version of the Sophie Kinsella novel, Confessions of a Shopaholic, in which he played Becky's father, Graham Bloomwood. The movie was released February 13, 2009. In the same year, he starred in the epic drama Pope Joan as Pope Sergius II.

Goodman played the Ghost of Christmas Present in the 2008 Kodak Theatre production of A Christmas Carol, starring Christopher Lloyd as Ebenezer Scrooge. He is set to play the role of Pozzo in a Studio 54 revival of the play Waiting for Godot, opposite Bill Irwin and Nathan Lane. Goodman's voice can also be heard on an automated message system at Lambert St. Louis International airport.[14] In 2009, Goodman lent his vocal talents to Disney's The Princess and the Frog, where he played "Big Daddy" La Bouff.[15][16]

In 2011, Goodman was a guest star on the third season of NBC's Community. He also voiced a character in id Software's game RAGE voicing Dan Hagar, and played movie studio chief Al Zimmer in the Academy Award–winning live action film The Artist.

In February 2012, it was reported that Goodman would reunite with Roseanne Barr for a new NBC pilot titled Downwardly Mobile. The show will be set in a trailer park and use a multiple-camera setup and Goodman will play one of the residents of the community.[17]

In November 2012, Goodman appeared in the film Flight, starring Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, and Melissa Leo. The film marked the third collaboration between Goodman and Leo, after starring together on the HBO series Treme and in the Kevin Smith film Red State.

New Orleans residency

Goodman has long resided in New Orleans, Louisiana.[5] Since Hurricane Katrina, Goodman has appeared on several recovery commercials aired in Louisiana.

Goodman was cast in In the Electric Mist (2009) as Julie "Baby Feet" Balboni, which is set in post–Hurricane Katrina Louisiana. Goodman was at one time slated to play the role of Ignatius Reilly, the main character of A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. The story takes place almost entirely in New Orleans. However, the movie was never put into production. The movie The Princess and the Frog where he lent his voice as Eli "Big Daddy" La Bouff also takes place in New Orleans. Goodman was featured in the HBO series Treme. Treme focuses on a group of interconnected people trying to rebuild their lives in post–Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. Goodman played Creighton Bernette, a Tulane English professor.

In 2010, Goodman appeared in a commercial to raise awareness for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Also starring in the commercial were Sandra Bullock, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Jack Del Rio, Drew Brees, Emeril Lagasse, James Carville, and Blake Lively.[citation needed]

Personal life

In a 2009 interview, Goodman was open about his alcoholism, saying, "I don't know how much the old Jackie Daniel's franchise ruined my memory, which is going anyway, because of my advancing decrepitude. I had a 30-year run, and at the end I didn't care about anything. I was just fed up with myself. I didn't even want to be an actor anymore."[18]

Toward the end of 2009–2010, Goodman lost 100 pounds. He has stated that exercise and a journal of food he consumed is what helped him keep the weight off.[19]

Leslie Mann (born March 26, 1972)[1] is an American actress best known for her roles in comedic films, many of which are collaborations with her husband, Judd Apatow. In 2012, Elle named her "Hollywood's queen of comedy".[2]




HIDE TEXT

 

Early life

Mann was born in San Francisco, California, and grew up in Newport Beach.[2] Mann was raised by her mother, a real estate agent who had married three times.[2][3] Mann has stated of her father, "My dad is ... I don't really have one. I mean, he does exist, but I have zero relationship with him".[4] Mann has two siblings and three older step-brothers.[2] She has said that she was "very shy, kind of pent-up" during her youth.[5] Mann graduated from Corona del Mar High School,[3] and studied acting at the Joanne Baron / D. W. Brown Studio and with comedy improv troupe The Groundlings.[2]

Career

Leslie Mann began her career at 18 appearing in a number of television commercials. In a 2012 interview with Elle magazine, she recalled that one was for a nail polish brand called Nouvage, in which she had to dance to Prince's "Kiss" on roller skates for the audition.[2] In 1995, Mann was chosen from an open audition of 500 candidates for her first big movie role in The Cable Guy (1996). Mann followed with performances including guest-starring in Freaks & Geeks, as well as appearing in Sam Weisman's George of The Jungle alongside Brendan Fraser, Big Daddy with Adam Sandler, Orange County opposite Jack Black, and The 40 Year Old Virgin with Steve Carell.[6]

In 2007, Mann starred alongside Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd in Judd Apatow's comedy Knocked Up, which grossed more than $218 million worldwide.[7] Mann's performance in the film garnered her rave reviews as well as a "Best Supporting Actress" nomination from the Chicago Film Critics Association. The film won the People's Choice Award for "Favorite Movie Comedy", was named one of AFI's "Top Ten Films of the Year", and received a nomination from the Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for "Best Comedy".[8]

In 2009, Mann reunited with her Big Daddy co-star Adam Sandler and Knocked Up co-star Seth Rogen for Apatow's Funny People.[9] This film was named to many of the year's top ten lists including The New Yorker and The New York Times.[10] ELLE writer Mickey Rapkin said that "[Mann] owns the second half of 2009's Funny People, where her character does the most unlikely thing a woman can do in a major studio picture: has an affair with an ex-boyfriend on a whim."[2] That same year, Mann also starred in Burr Steers' successful comedy 17 Again opposite Zac Efron and Matthew Perry, which grossed over $125 million worldwide.[11] She was also seen in the indie hit I Love You Phillip Morris alongside Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor.[12] The film premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and upon release was met with critical acclaim including a nomination for a 2011 Broadcast Film Critics Association Award in the category of "Best Comedy".[13] Mann also starred alongside Elizabeth Banks in the film What Was I Thinking? based upon the book by Barbara Davilman and Liz Dubelman which was filmed in 2009 but never released.[14]

In 2011, Mann starred opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman in David Dobkin's comedy The Change-Up. [15] In addition, she lent her voice to "Linda", the main human character in Carlos Saldanha's animated film Rio, which garnered over $484 million worldwide and also featured vocal performances by Jamie Foxx and Anne Hathaway,[16] as well as to Jonah Hill's animated FOX television series Allen Gregory, as the title character's second-grade teacher.[17]

Mann continued her recent voice performance work in 2012 with her role in ParaNorman, an animated 3D, stop-motion film from the team behind 2009's Oscar-nominated Coraline, including writer/director Chris Butler, Focus Features and LAIKA.[18] Which received a nomination for Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

In December 2012 Mann appeared opposite Paul Rudd in Judd Apatow's This Is 40, the 2012 sequel to Knocked Up. The movie reunited the trio from the film, with Mann and Rudd reprising their characters. The film was written and directed by Judd Apatow and includes their two daughters in the cast list.[19] In contrast to Knocked Up, This Is 40 centered squarely on Mann's character and her family. An early response on Mann's performance from Elle Magazine states that "[she] doesn't just walk off with scenes—she steals the show".[2]

Mann was nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy by the Broadcast Film Critics Association for This Is 40.[20]

In 2013, Mann will be seen in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring with Emma Watson. Inspired by actual events, the film follows a group of fame-obsessed L.A. teenagers who burgled celebrity homes by tracking their whereabouts on the Internet.[21]

Personal life

Mann is married to producer Judd Apatow, whom she married in 1997 on June 9. She has two daughters with him, Iris and Maude. The family currently lives in Los Angeles.

In 1995, Mann auditioned for Ben Stiller's The Cable Guy (1996). Stiller needed a stand in for Jim Carrey during film auditions and the job fell to writer/producer Apatow, who read with all actresses including Mann. The reading was the couple's first meeting, however it was not until The 40-Year-Old Virgin, almost 10 years later, that she and Apatow first collaborated professionally in film.[22]

Mann and Apatow's daughters Iris and Maude appeared in the films Knocked Up, Funny People, and This Is 40 as the children of Mann's characters.[23]

Mann and Apatow are both longtime supporters of the non-profit organization 826LA, which focuses on encouraging the writing skills of disadvantaged youth.[24] They are also involved with the UCLA Rape Treatment Center's Stuart House, which serves the needs of sexually abused children and their families.[25] Mann and Apatow's philanthropic contributions were honored in 2012 by the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program, which awarded the couple the 2012 "Children's Choice Award" for their work with children and families, who are dealing with pediatric cancer. In 2009, the couple was also recognized by The Fulfillment Fund who honored them at their annual benefit gala.[26]
