Rachel Roberts

Birthday: 03/04/1978
Birthplace: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Occupation: Actor
Sign: Pisces
One of the world's top fashion models. Rachel Roberts began her career at age sixteen in her hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The stunning model-turned-actress did layouts for Elle UK and Canada magazine, and was on the cover of the July 10, 2000 Elle France magazine; Glamour (US) for the February 2002 issue (Love Is In The Hair, Photography by Patric Shaw); Marie Claire; Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2000; Nylon; The New York ...
Hailing from Vancouver, British Colombia, Big has joined an influx of stars and musicians from the Canadian West Coast, such as Hayden Christensen(Anakin Skywalker), Diana Kralland Nelly Furtado which have made it big worldwide. Discovered at a young age, Rachel moved up the modeling ladder quickly, often the case with a new face in her industry.

As early as 1998, when Rachel was still only 19, magazines were courting her to do covers. She began to shoot for big names, doing Elle, Vogue, Glamour and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue of 2000. Signing on to be skin-care line Biotherm's official model, she gained even more notoriety by posing for labels such as Ralph Lauren, Dana Buchman, Victoria's Secret, and Banana Republic.

As her career took off, Rachel moved to New York City, where she now lives with her husband. It was a strategic move, giving her an opportunity to appear in more shows and put her face in more magazines. A whirlwind of activity, Big landed her upcoming role in Simone just as her name was becoming common in the fashion world. In accordance with director Andrew Niccol's (Gattica, The Truman Show) demands, just who was playing the title character was kept a secret from the beginning of shooting in late 2000 up until May 2002.

In Simone, Roberts plays a computer-generated actress created by director Al Pacino who is forced to find a new actress for his film after the original one walks out. The public embraces this new actress, never aware that she is literally a virtual creation. Rachel's character becomes a smash success, and Pacino is powerless to admit what he has done.

With her new acting career and fresh take on the world of modeling, Big' future is bright. With beauty like hers, we just hope she gets as much exposure as possible.

Jennifer Connelly

Name: Jennifer Connelly
Born: 12 December 1970 (Age: 38)
Where: Woodstock, New York, USA
Height: 5' 8"
Awards: Won 1 Oscar, 1 BAFTA, 1 Golden Globe
Jennifer Connelly was born December 12, 1970, in Catskill Mountains, New York, to parents Gerard, a clothing manufacturer, and Eileen, an antique dealer.

Although she claims she was tiny and mousy as a child, she was certainly pretty enough to appear in magazines such as Seventeen at the age of 10, after a friend of her father's recommended that she model.

Signed with Ford models, Jennifer did her share of print and television before appearing in front of cameras as an actress. While a student at St. Ann's School, she landed a role as a young Elisabeth McGovern for a flashback sequence in the mobster film, Once Upon a Time in America, starring Robert De Niro.

a-maze-ing breakthrough

With only an appearance on the television show, Tales of the Unexpected on her acting resume, she was soon on her way, but her next outings, Creepers (aka Phenomena and Seven Minutes in Heaven) weren't the answers to her breaking through.

What did help her find her way out of obscurity was the lead role opposite David Bowie in Jim Henson and George Lucas' 1986 film, Labyrinth. Her role placed her into the spotlight, so much so that she is even recognized by children today.

By the time she had graduated high school, Jennifer had appeared in a video for Roy Orbison's "I Drove All Night" with Jason Priestly; appeared in television commercials in Japan; and even released a single in Japan entitled, "Monologue of Love," in which she sings in Japanese (her agent claimed that she was semi-fluent in the language).

But Jennifer's career choice left her in a maze of disappointment after disappointment, with roles in 1990's The Hot Spot and Career Opportunities. The latter did not live up to its name, as it was not much more than another film credit.

skyrocketing with the rocketeer

Balancing work and school, Jennifer attended Yale and then transferred to Stanford, but decided to make acting her number one priority when she was cast in the lead of Disney's The Rocketeer. The movie not only skyrocketed Jennifer to new heights, but it also led to a long-term romance with her co-star, Billy Campbell.

In 1995, Jennifer was cast as a lesbian in Higher Learning, co-starring Tyra Banks, and the following year she appeared in Mulholland Falls and starred in Far Harbor.

The green-eyed beauty then had a streak, with 1997's Inventing the Abbotts, as Liv Tyler's sister, and less commercial films like Dark City, Waking the Dead, the critically-acclaimed Requiem for a Dream, in a convincing turn as a heroine addict, and Pollock.

Jennifer tried her hand at television, with a starring role in the poorly rated The $treet, and although it was canceled, Jennifer became a star with her supporting role in A Beautiful Mind, opposite Russell Crowe. She is also busy raising her son, Kai (the fruit of her relationship with photographer Dave Dougan), as a single mother.

Her acting talents were finally recognized as she was nominated for a Best Supporting Female Independent Spirit Award for her role in Requiem for a Dream. Jennifer finally received her much-deserved recognition with Best Supporting Actress trophies at the 2002 Golden Globe and Oscar award shows.

Jennifer will next appear in the Ang Lee directed film adaptation, The Hulk
