Christina's parents are Fausto Wagner Xavier Aguilera, a U.S. Army sergeant, and Shelly Loraine Fidler, a Spanish teacher. Her parents divorced when she was 6 or 7 and she moved to Rochester, PA with her mother and little sister, Rachael. She attended North Allegheny School District.
Since Aguilera was a small child, she aspired to be a singer. As a child she performed at block parties and in talent competitions, where she defeated her opponents. Aguilera soon gained media attention, and was known as "the little girl with the big voice". According to VH1's Driven, this label eventually backfired on her. When competitors learned they would be up against her in any given week, they immediately backed out. Her peers became jealous and after one attempt of assualt and several acts of vandalism around her house, the family moved.
In 1990, she appeared on Star Search but failed to win. Aguilera sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" before Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey games, Pittsburgh Steelers football and Pittsburgh Pirates baseball games, throughout her childhood. Her first major role in entertainment came in 1993 when she joined the Disney Channel's variety show The New Mickey Mouse Club. Her co-stars included Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Rhona Bennett (who later became a member of En Vogue), Ryan Gosling, and Keri Russell. Her co-stars called her the "diva". When the show ended in 1994, Aguilera began recording demos in an attempt to get signed to a record label.
In 1997, she represented the United States at the "Golden Stag" International Festival. According to Wikipedia, in 1998 she sang the High "E" in full voice on a cover of Whitney Houston's "Run to You" which she recorded with an old tape recorder in her bathroom. She was then selected to record the song "Reflection" for the Disney animated production of Mulan (1998). Recording "Reflection" led to Aguilera earning a contract with RCA Records during the same week. "Reflection" peaked within the top twenty on the Adult Contemporary Singles Chart, and it was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for "Best Original Song" in 1998. She went on to make many hit singles and albums.
Christina has also performed at the 2007 Grammy Awards and the NBA All Star Game Half Time Show in February. She will also guest star on CSI: NY in late February, 2007. In January 2007, Aguilera was named the 19th richest woman in entertaiment by Forbes with a net worth of $60 million+.
There were many rumors about Christina dating Carson Daly, an MTV VJ, but both denied it. She dated Puerto Rican-born dancer Jorge Santos for two years until the relationship ended in September 2001. In late 2002, Aguilera began dating music marketing executive Jordan Bratman. They were married in 2005.
She has been active in many different charities. She is still a major contributor in her hometown of Pittsburgh contributing regularly to the Women's Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh. She also supports the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Refuge UK, PETA, and Defenders of Wildlife. Aguilera contributes in the fight against AIDS by participating in many campaigns and projects.

Born: February 11, 1969
Location: Sherman Oaks, California
Awards: Emmy Award, Golden Globe Award, People's Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards, Logie and Screen Actors Guild Award
Height: 5 ft 5 in
After several lesser-known film and television roles during the early 1990s, Aniston came to fame on the hugely popular television sitcom Friends for which she won a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award.
Aniston was born in Sherman Oaks, California and grew up in New York City. In 1985, the family moved to Los Angeles, where Aniston's father starred on the soap opera Days of our Lives. Aniston graduated from Manhattan's School of Performing Arts. Aniston's desire to become an actress grew as she worked in Off-Broadway productions such as For Dear Life and Dancing on Checker's Grave. During this time, she supported herself with several part-time jobs, including working as a telemarketer and bike messenger.
Aniston appeared as a "Nutri-System" girl on The Howard Stern Radio Show in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Then she moved to Hollywood and landed some television roles. After the string of cancelled shows, along with her appearance in the critically derided 1993 horror film, Leprechaun, Aniston seriously considered giving up acting. She auditioned for Friends and was cast in the role of Rachael Green making one million dollars per episode for the last 2 seasons. She also starred in some films, mentioned in the filmography below.
Her high-profile relationship with actor Brad Pitt was frequently publicized in the press. The couple spit about 5 years later. Media reports have speculated that the split was due to an affair on Pitt's part, with actress Angelina Jolie, or due to Aniston's refusal to have children, which she denies ever saying. Since the couple's divorce, Aniston has been romantically linked with well-known actor Vince Vaughn. Although in November 2006 it was officially announced that the couple had split but they remain friends. She is friends with Oprah Winfrey, Sheryl Crow, and Ellen DeGeneres. She is also the godmother to Courteney Cox Arquette's and David Arquette's daughter Coco.
Forbes recently listed her as the 10th richest woman in the entertainment industry for the year 2007. She is behind such powerhouses as Oprah, J. K. Rowling, and Jennifer Lopez and is ahead of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and the Olsen twins. Aniston's net worth is approximately 110 million. In 2006, People magazine voted her Best Dressed. Some of Aniston's favourite things include the colour blue, spening time on the internet, painting, Mexican food and her dogs.
She was invited on Dancing With the Stars reality show. In 2007, she will play Courtney Cox Arquette's rival on Courtney's new television show Dirt.

Depp engaged in self harm when he was younger, later stating “my body is a journal in a way. It’s like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on yourself, whether you do it yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist.”
In 1979, Depp dropped out of school to pursue a rock career. He joined “The Kids” and in 1983 married his make-up artist and drummer’s sister, Lori Anne Allison, which ultimately created conflict and the band broke up. They later divorced in 1985.
Depp’s first major role was in A Nightmare on Elm Street. He later was cast in 21 Jump Street where he became an instant teen heart throb. His status sky rocketed with his performance in Pirates of the Carribean, playing Jack Sparrow, whom Depp modeled off of Rocking Stones Keith Richards.
In his personal life, Depp lives with his girlfriend Vanessa Paradise and currently the couple has two children Lily-Rose, and Jack. Depp has a tattoo of a sparrow flying over the word Jack, which is for his son Jack and also commemorating Pirates of the Caribbean.
Depp has been arrested several times, once in a Vancover hotel lobby for a late-night altercation. He was also arrested for allowing illegal drugs to be sold at his club, The Viper Room, where River Phoenix died. In 1994, he was arrested in New York City for causing severe damages to a New York hotel room and again in 1999 for fighting with paparazzi in London.
Depp also co-owns Man Ray, a Parisian restaurant, along with Sean Penn, John Malkovich, and Mick Hucknall. He also enjoys music and can be heard playing slide guitar on the Oasis song “Fade-In-Out”, in the movie Chocolat, the soundtrack Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and performed on Shane McGowan’s first solo album.
