Fox grew up in nearby Rockwood, Tennessee, beginning her training in drama and dance at age 5, in Kingston.She attended a dance class at the community center there and was involved in Kingston Elementary School's chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team.
At 10-years-old, after moving to St. Petersburg, Florida, Fox continued her training. She attended Morningside Academy, a private Christian school, in Port St. Lucie, during her middle school years and finished her high school education at St. Lucie West Centennial High School, in Port St. Lucie.
At age 16, Fox launched her career after winning several awards at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
Fox made her film debut in the 2001 film Holiday in the Sun as the spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace and rival of Alex Stewart (Ashley Olsen). She then landed guest appearances on Ocean Ave., What I Like About You, Two and a Half Men and The Help from 2003 to 2004. In 2004, Fox starred in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen alongside Lindsay Lohan. She was subsequently cast in a recurring role on the television series Hope & Faith, in which she portrayed Sydney Shanowski from 2004 through 2006
Fox's big break arrived when she acquired the lead female role of Mikaela Banes in the 2007 live-action film Transformers, based on the toy and cartoon saga of the same name. She played the love interest of Shia LaBeouf's character Sam Witwicky. In June 2007, Fox was cast in How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, starring alongside Jeff Bridges, Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst. The character Fox portrayed is that of a young Hollywood starlet getting her first taste of fame. The film premiered in October 2008, and she has signed on for two more Transformers sequels
As a model, Fox has been featured in the men's magazines FHM, GQ and Maxim.FHM voted her the, "Sexiest Woman in the World," in 2008
For a time, she was known as Pamela Anderson Lee (or Pamela Lee Anderson) after marrying Mötley Crüe drummer, Tommy Lee. She holds both American and Canadian citizenship.
Anderson was born in Ladysmith, British Columbia, the daughter of Carol, a waitress, and Barry Anderson, a furnace repairman. Her great-grandfather, Juho Hyytiäinen, was Finnish, a native of Saarijärvi, and left Finland in 1908 changing his name to Anderson when he arrived as an immigrant
After graduating from Highland Secondary School in 1985, Anderson moved to Vancouver and worked as a fitness instructor. During the summer of 1989, Anderson went with her friends to a BC Lions game at BC Place; at some point during the game she was shown on the stadium screen wearing a Labatt's t-shirt, causing the crowd to cheer for the 21-year-old Anderson.
She was taken down to the field to get an ovation from the crowd. Labatt's immediately offered Anderson a modeling contract and she accepted. In late 1989, Anderson decided to model for Playboy magazine. She first appeared as their October 1989 cover girl. At this stage in her modeling career, she had decided to live in Los Angeles to further pursue her career ambitions.
After her move to Los Angeles, Anderson bleached her brunette hair blonde and underwent breast augmentation and returned with diameters of 32.5 centimetres. In 1991, she landed a minor role as the original "Tool Time girl" on the hit television sitcom, Home Improvement. She left the show after two seasons and landed the role of C. J. Parker on Baywatch.
Anderson was still modeling for Outdoor Life and appearing on the cover of the magazine each year. Her role as C.J. Parker gave her more popularity and gained her attention from international viewers. She returned to Baywatch for the 2003 reunion movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding. She also made appearances on The Nanny as Fran's rival, Heather Biblow.
In 1996, she appeared in a feature film, Barb Wire, as a character known as Barbara Rose Kopetski, which was mistakenly thought by some to have been her real name. The movie, a thinly-veiled futuristic remake of Casablanca, failed to achieve commercial success. During the filming of Barb Wire, Anderson suffered a miscarriage. In April 1997, she guest-hosted Saturday Night Live.
During the beginning of the show, Anderson said, "You know, if you're nervous on stage, you actually should be naked!" She then began a striptease. Her breasts, however, were covered by a small flesh-colored bra and she also wore a crotch patch that was also flesh colored (though they were still blurred out for the sake of the joke). The segment became fodder for late-night comedians for the following weeks. She also appeared on one of two covers for the September issue of Playboy; the other cover pictured Jenny McCarthy.
It seems like being engaged or getting secretly married is the new black in Hollywood, as Tinseltown’s hottest stars are being scooped up left right and center permanently. Engagement rings, and weddings, and secret elopements oh my. The next couple on the wedding block are none other than the smoking Adriana Lima and her NBA Star man Marko Jaric. And of course, it couldn’t happen on any other day than Valentine’s Day. Awww…collective hug. Or gag, depending on where you fall on the romance meter. Marko proposed to Adriana on her birthday, and the two got secretly married on Valentine’s Day in a quite ceremony in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. But this is a couple that is going to have their cake and eat it too, so keep an eye out for more wedding details. Adriana is not wanting to miss the big white dress experience, and is planning a summer broo ha ha, second wedding of sorts, for all of their nearest and dearest. Their next wedding is expected to take place in Brazil, Adriana’s home country, or perhaps in Serbia where Marko is from. The happy couple met in 2006 and were engaged last June on Adriana’s 27th birthday. Congratulations to the happy couple!
Brazilian supermodel extraordinaire Adriana Lima has kept men panting for years. And now it seems, she is just going to have to stay but a mere fantasy for every man, as her tiny frame has now been weighed down by a beautiful engagement ring. Adriana is best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret angel, and the shining face for Maybelline, though she is also rather famous as one of the sexiest women alive. And deservedly so. But nobody thinks that more than her sweet beau hunk and noted basketball star Marko Jaric. Thursday night was Adriana’s 27th birthday and Marko took Adriana for a night on the town to celebrate her birthday and to ask her to stay with him forever. Mind you, the pair have only been together for about nine months, but when your girlfriend is Adriana Lima, one must act fast. The Minnesota Timberwolves star admits he fell hard for Adriana’s beauty, both inside and out, and it was love at first sight. Clearly, Adriana feels the same as she has promised the rest of her life to him. Awwww. Collective hug. Many congrats to the happy couple!
Here is the ever so stunning Adriana Lima at a Press Conference and Photo Call last Friday in Centro Comercial Santa Fe, Mexico City, Mexico. And you have to know that a woman this gorgeous just does not stay single for long. It seems that one of the hottest Victoria’s Secret models is now officially linked to the Minnesota Timberwolves hotty Marko Jaric. Since appearing in the Victoria’s Secret Superbowl Ad, Adriana’s pretty face has been all over the place, and now that she is linked to the hottest Timberwolves guard, it will be even more so. Marko Jaric is not so bad himself, what with being 6 foot 7, 224 pounds and an NBA star. This hottie from Belgrade, Yugoslavia is also a member of the Serbian National Team. *sigh* She’s so pretty, and so lucky, you almost want to hate her.
It hit me instantly! Miss Piggy, is that you!? Well, Adriana must’uv learn’t a few tricks from the posh muppet since she’s showing the cameras some love. Here’s Adriana Lima in all of her glory @ the “Victoria’s Secret Super Bowl VIP Salon” in Paradise Valley, Arizona, on Saturday. It looks like she’s promoting the crap out of yet another shitty Victoria’s Secret product. I mean, OK… the lip gloss is fab., and the pjs aren’t bad, but the lingerie is some poor quality stuff. It’s amazing how their whole brand revolves around the lingerie… but, I guess sex sells. It’s a good thing you can’t see up close on the runway!
Isn’t it funny how celebrity pregnancies work? In some cases you have celebrities that seem to stay pregnant until their eleventh trimester, like Ashlee Simpson. And in other cases, you have celebrities that announce their pregnancy and then seem to have their baby the following week. This is how I feel about Jenn Garner and Ben Affleck as it seems this pregnancy has just zoooomed by. Here is Ben Affleck taking his pregnant wife Jennifer Garner for a brief visit to Cedars Sinai Hospital, though why they were stopping in is unknown. They could have been checking out the maternity ward or filling out paperwork for their pending arrival, or Jennifer could have experienced some early contractions and needed a rush to the hospital. It seems by the looks of the picture that Jennifer isn’t doing all that well, so it was probably of no surprise to her or her husband that she went into labor very shortly after this photo was taken. The picture was taken on Sunday, and Jennifer and Ben welcomed the newest addition to their family just two days later on Tuesday morning, giving birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl. No other details on their new little princess have been released, such as size or the ever elusive name question, but mom and Violet’s new little sister are doing very well. Just days before the delivery, Jennifer was spotted with her oldest daughter, three year old Violet at the Farmer’s Market in Pacific Palisades and grabbing a decaf coffee at Caffe Luxxe in Santa Monica. And by all accounts, Jennifer is going to handle number two with the aplomb and grace that she did with Violet. Any co star that has worked with her, such as Alias co star and close friend Victor Garber, say that Jennifer will need no help in the mommy department. Friends close to her say that Jennifer is ‘the best mother they know’. And my hunch is it won’t be long before we see her big toothy grin as she introduces her new daughter to the rest of the world. Our congratulations go out to Ben, Jennifer, and new big sister little Violet.
And here is a picture of Rihana taken when she was better prepared:
Aren't you thankful for the wonders of Beautiful Cover Girl and L'Oreal? Bruises aside, surely you wouldn't recognise the woman in the top picture as the same person in the bottom one!!
Well, this is one story that twists and turns on a dime, doesn’t it. And now that horrific details of the beating that Rihanna received at the hands of Chris Brown have been released, one can not help but keep glued to this story as it unfolds. And this is one story that seems to unfold with every passing minute. For starters, rumors surfaced this weekend that the two got married in a quiet ceremony in Miami, but this does not seem to be the case. This rumor was started when it was feared that Rihanna would not testify against Chris, and getting married would be an easy way to avoid testimony against him. However, this is not the case, and it is questionable even that the two have gotten back together as everyone seems to be saying. They have been seen spending some time together in Miami, but what this was for, either to resolve things, bring closure, keep going, or to just plain move on, we won’t know for some time. What we do know at this point however is that Chris Brown has been charged with two felonies, assault and for making criminal threats, and that Rihanna is the key witness to the case. As it stands right now, Rihanna is co-oeprating completely with the authorities, which is a sign that if asked to testify, she will do so. It is being said that she is doing ‘everything that the law requires her to do’. It is of course hoped that she does testify, as the DA is reporting that her statements to the police about the extensive punching and bruising can only be used against him if she takes the stand. But just about anyone involved in the case will tell you that right now, it’s just too soon to tell if that will happen. She has made it very clear that she wants him to take responsibility for his actions, and the first step to this is with a restraining and protective order, a very wise move in my opinion. With this order, she is assured that he will stay away from her, and violating this order will not bode well for him since he has two felony charges pending. In the protective order, Rihanna has the power to gather evidence against him should he choose to cause some problems for her, and this includes but is not limited to taping phone conversations, or anything in writing. There are currently no restrictions on how physically close he may be to her, and this portion of the protective order was on Rihanna’s choice it seems. But restrictions under this order include:
he may not harass, strike, threaten, assault (sexually or otherwise), follow, stalk, molest, destroy or damage personal or real property of Rihanna’s. He also may not “disturb the peace, keep under surveillance or block movements” of her, and must get rid of any guns he may have by surrendering them to police or selling them to a licensed dealer within 24 hours. And he cannot “dissuade or prevent” anybody from attending a hearing or making a report to police.
The ‘keep under surveillance’ component of this order is interesting, and suggests that perhaps Chris is a little more controlling than we may think, though this is a classic characteristic of domestic abusers, and may well be the reason she has attempted a resolution or reconciliation with him. He is allowed to talk to her by phone, and be near her if she so chooses. This order is in place until March 2012, or until Rihanna changes the order or puts further limitations on it. At this point, we can only sit back and wait to see what happens next, but our hearts do go out to Rihanna during what must be a terrible time for her.

Paris Hilton just updated her MySpace page and it seems that she’s sick of all those pet store rumors!!
Sick of Rumors
Current mood: annoyed
Hi guys, hope you all had a great weekend! I just shot the finale for my BFF show and I can’t wait for you all to see it…I’ll let you all know when it premieres, it’s going to be amazing and everyone did such an incredible job.
I wanted to let you know that I’ve been getting messages and reading stories about an incident that supposedly happened with me and a pet store: I was catching up on news last week only to read a story about me walking by some puppies for sale, and demanding that I be given a Yorkie puppy to be an accessory for a photo shoot. These stories have gotten out of control and I want to clear some things up-
I wasn’t looking for a new pet, I wasn’t even at a photo shoot that day, (I was down the street at Benji’s DCMA clothing store) and I actually have a Yorkie puppy. I love animals and the cruel things people say are not acceptable. Puppies are not accessories or toys and I love my own pets dearly–I treat them as if they were my children. Of course I support pet adoption from shelters, and I made sure that my BFF show involved a local one to spread the word about how these animals need loving owners. So it is sad that someone felt the need to invent a story about me throwing a fit for a dog that would “go with my outfit.”
I have no idea where people come up with these stories and they are spreading to so many news outlets that I just have to speak my mind and clear things up, especially with my fans. I love you all and appreciate your messages, as always.
Have a great week, and I will post again soon–after wrapping the BFF show, it’s on to more projects, travel and time with the people (and pets) that I love.
One of the many things that Paris Hilton is famous for is for her poor treatment of the scads of pooches she seems to need to keep around her. There was of course the story of Prada, a pup that she forgot to pick up from the vet after she sent her in to get ‘fixed’ and there’s always more gossip on her 15 or 17 pups that she keeps around, illegally, as little accessories. Recently Paris created a stir when a Melrose Avenue pet store refused to let her borrow a Yorkie puppy that she wanted as an accessory for a photo shoot. And apparently Paris lost it, I believe the term ‘ballistic’ was used. She claims that never happened, said she didn’t even have a photo shoot ‘that day’, yet, oddly she remembers ‘that day’ in the sense that she knew exactly what the Melrose store was talking about. She says she loves all her animals and treats them as if they were her children. I am not too sure what she means by that since she’s never really understood what having children is like, but you know….Paris is Paris. But she was upset that people were ‘inventing stories’ about her, given that on her new reality show she included some scenes that make a point of spreading the word about how animals in shelters need loving owners. Whether the story about the Melrose store is true or not, who knows, but she does bring this on herself. Perhaps people would stop ‘inventing stories’ about her using animals as accessories when she stops naming them Prada, do you think?
Paris Hilton was spotted last week as she left the Patricia Field store in New York City. Paris was there filming for her Paris BFF reality show. +1 …
Paris Hilton caused quite the drama at her latest photo shoot - because it was a bit chilly.
Paris was supposed to pose by the pool at New York’s Hotel Gansevoort, but the cold was too much for her.
“Paris insisted on moving to the terrace,” an insider said. “But even then she wasn’t happy and had a flunky bring a space heater and place it directly in front of her.”
Paris Hilton misses Hawaii and instead decides to wear a Lei headress while partying at Tao!! She kind of looks like a Greek Goddes. What do you think?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes at the Valkyrie premiere, London.
Tom and Katie look beautiful together at this premiere! I also loved Katie Holmes black sequined dress which is then tied at the shoulders with black ribbon.
Recommended Movies : “Legend” some people haven’t even heard of this film but regardless its a great fantasy film I highly recommend. Tom Cruise plays the role of Jack who is trying to help save his love Lily. Without giving much of it away it involves Unicorns, Goblins, Demons, and Fairies. Tom Cruise also has 2 films in “Pre-Production” - “Men” and “Tourist”
Valkyrie is a 2008 historical thriller film set in Nazi Germany during World War II that depicts the July 20, 1944 plot by German army officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler.
Tom Cruise appears as Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, one of the key plotters. Bill Nighy, Eddie Izzard, Terence Stamp and Tom Wilkinson also feature. Cruise’s casting caused controversy among German politicians and members of von Stauffenberg’s family because of the actor’s practice of Scientology, which is considered a cult in the country. German newspapers and filmmakers supported the film to spread global awareness of von Stauffenberg’s plot. The filmmakers initially had difficulty setting up filming locations in Germany due to the controversy, but they were later given leeway to film in locations pertaining to the film’s story, such as Berlin’s historic Bendlerblock.
Kim Basinger and her beautiftl daughter Ireland ( also the daughter of Alec Baldwin, you know the daughter who he insulted on the answering machine, which the message later went “public”) attending the world premiere of Summit Entertainment’s ‘Twilight’ held at the Man Village and Bruin Theaters in Westwood, California.
Fun Facts about Kim Basinger - she is currently in a bitter custody battle with ex husband Alec Baldwin over their daughter Ireland. She once had a brief relationship with Prince!.
