Anna Faris

Born in Baltimore on Nov. 29, 1976, Anna Faris launched her acting career with the independent horror movie Lover's Lane (1999). But it was her decision to spoof the genre outright in the Scary Movie series -- initially dyeing her blond hair to a darker hue to resemble Scream star Neve Campbell -- that propelled her into the public eye.

In the wake of her first Scary Movie, Faris gravitated toward comedies, appearing in The Hot Chick (2002), Waiting¿ (2005) and My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006). But she also added small roles in more serious fare to her résumé -- including Lost in Translation and Brokeback Mountain -- along with a recurring role on "Friends."

In 2008, Faris embraced her blondeness for The House Bunny, portraying a 27-year-old Playboy playmate who reinvents herself as a sorority house mother when she gets kicked out of the Playboy Mansion for being too old.
