Who IS Kristen Stewart, Anyway?

Poor Kristen Stewart. The actress who plays Bella in “Twilight” (Did you see it yet?!) has to deal with all of the rabid, screaming fans, but chances are most of the adoration is directed at her male co-star, Robert Pattinson. The thing is, though I haven’t seen the film just yet, given Kristen’s other work, she is probably the most perfectly cast actor in the film. You see, Kristen Stewart was an actress before “Twilight” and while the vampire filmed (and it’s probable subsequent sequals) are going to make her a mega star, she’s gotten plenty of critical attention in the past. After the jump, everything you could ever want to know about the actress who is going to be the biggest thing since, well, Robert Pattinson. Keep reading »

Who Is Olga Kurylenko, Anyway?

Who is this new Bond Girl, Olga Kurylenko? Well, she can tell you herself! For a model with English as her second language, the smarty-pants knows many polysyllabic words. In interviews, Olga seems like a cool chick who isn’t afraid to break up the action movie boys club! So we did a little spying ourselves and here’s what we found out about the lean, mean, fighting machine, who will be appearing alongside super dreamy Daniel Craig in tonight’s big release, “Quantum Of Solace.”

Who Is Betty Boop, Anyway?

Betty Boop has strutted across the screen for over 75 years. With a skimpy dress and a squeaky voice, she charmed her way into some of the most popular cartoons and pants of her time. Now, the beloved cartoon cutie is coming to Broadway! But what do we really know about this broad, anyway? We investigators at The Frisky delved into the titillator’s textured past to find out what puts the Boop in the “oop a doop.” And it is scandalous!

Who Is Gerard Butler, Anyway?

Actor Gerard Butler, the actor best known for his role in “300″, has made headlines the past few months for all the business he’s being doing in his boudoir. His bedroom has seen more action than even his movie sets! And this week, he was seen at a “meeting” cozying up to Jennifer Aniston, who has supposedly taken John Mayer back. So who is this suave Scotsman who’s making more moves in LA than a U-Haul?

Who Is Anna Paquin, Anyway?

Anna Paquin has been steaming up the small screen with her role as Sookie Stackhouse on HBO’s “True Blood”. But we realized we know very little about this actress, except that she starred opposite Holly Hunter in “The Piano” at age nine and took on the role of Rogue in the “X-Men” franchise as a teen. That’s quite an expanse of time and we knew she had to have been up to something. You know, keeping her name out there. So after the jump find out how Paquin spends her time and who she spends it with. Keep reading »

Who Is Elizabeth Banks, Anyway?

With several movies out in the past year, and a few about the hit the big screen in time for the holiday rush, Elizabeth Banks is finally getting the attention she deserves. Over the years she’s had a bunch of smaller roles in movies such as “Spiderman”, “Catch Me If You Can”, and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” as well as several roles on TV. But who is this familiar face?Here’s some of the dirt I’ve dug up on her…although she seems to be pretty squeaky clean! Keep reading »

Who Is Daniel Craig, Anyway?

Before Daniel Craig came along, I could honestly give two craps about James Bond and his stupid 007. Sean Connery thinks that it’s okay to slap a woman, Pierce Brosnan seems kind of smarmy to me, and I have no clue who Roger Moore or Timothy Dalton is. But then I heard rumors of a darker, meaner, SEXIER Bond and I was totally intrigued. And my instinct was right. I’m just gonna say it, Bond Nerds — Daniel Craig is the best Bond since Connery. In fact, I think he is better. Go ahead, crucify me, but before you do that, here’s all the info I could dig up on the British heartthrob. Keep reading »

Who Is Brooke Burke, Anyway?

Brooke Burke is tearing it up on “Dancing with the Stars” every week, and we realized we haven’t thought much about her since she hosted that spring break-like travel show on E! Here’s a little background so you can speak intelligently about the brunette while discussing her Quickstep performance with your coworkers.

  • LOVES: Before getting married to Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Garth Fisher in 2001, Burke had been proposed to nine times and engaged four times. The two split in 2005 and have two children together, Sierra Sky and Neriah. Burke is currently engaged to former “Baywatch” and “Melrose Place” star and David Charvet. The woman is the very definition of “serial monogamist,” but we think she and Charvet will stay together — he speaks French fluently.

    Who IS January Jones, Anyway?

    “Mad Men” is my favorite smart show on television (“America’s Next Top Model” is my favorite stupid show), partially because my loins desire the raw magnetism of Don Draper, but also because I absolutely love the compelling story lines driven by the show’s main actresses. Betty Draper’s character is of particular interest to me and I think she is portrayed so subtly by January Jones. But who the heck is the actress with the porn star-worthy name anyway? Well, for starters, she must have been born to fabulous parents — upon her birth in 1978 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, her parents named her after the character “January Wayne”, from Jacqueline Susann’s “Once Is Not Enough”. That just happens to be one of my favorite trashy reads — I mean, who names their kid after a character in one of the trashiest pill-popping novels of the 1970s? Awesome people, that’s who. Read on for more January Jones info, including the slew of Hollywood stars she’s dated. Keep reading »

    Who IS Rachel Zoe, Anyway?

    The Frisky definitely has a love/hate obsession with Rachel Zoe — we love her because she’s such a ridiculous character that she’s impossible not to watch, but we hate her because she’s grossly skinny and shallow. But I realized that perhaps many of you didn’t know who SHE is and why she has her own TV show. Here’s a little background on the pint-sized stylist with the fake tan, big sunglasses, and loads of jewelry that we’ll be spending our Tuesday nights with on Bravo.

    LOVES: Born Rachel Zoe Rosenzweig in 1971 to art collector parents in New Jersey, Zoe dropped her last name in favor of her middle when she began her career as a fashion stylist — and FYI, it’s supposed to rhyme with “faux” or “dough” (or “slow”!). While studying sociology and psychology at George Washington University (she graduated in 1993), Zoe met her husband Rodger Berman, an investment banker. As the two have been married since well before she was “famous”, any other boyfriends are unknown, but Zoe has always said her first love (we assume besides her hubby) is fashion.
