Richards is among the most desirable women in Hollywood, around
90% of the people in the business would like to sleep with her.
Denise Richards may not have cut it as a catwalk model but she could
have a great career as a centerfold. In addition to her classic,
Coca Cola bottle figure, she has a face that combines the soap commercial
prettiness of an all-American, High School sweetheart with just
a hint of depravity. She grew up in Downers Grove, a middle-class
suburb of Chicago. She attended Herrick Junior High School until
she completed the eighth grade. Then she went to Tinley Park High
School for her freshman year, until she moved with her parents Joni
and Irv to the San Diego area, where they currently own a chain
of coffee shops called Jitters. She graduated from El Camino High
School in Oceanside, California in 1989. She did some modeling as
a teenager and briefly moved to New York where she lived in a model
apartment with six other girls.
After a while she became a make-up girl for Bonné
Bell. During this time she appeared in a lot of swim suit magazine
articles. But at 5ft 6in (167 cm) she was never going to get much
further in the modeling business so she moved to Los Angeles and
started taking acting classes.Her first role on TV was on the drama
"Life Goes On". After that she made guest appearances
in "Melrose Place", "Married with Children",
"Seinfeld", "Lois and Clark", and "Weird
Science". Her debut feature appearance was in 1993s "National
Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 ". One of her first breaks came when
she got the part of Ben Affleck's girlfriend in an NBC show called
"Against The Grain" in 1993, but it was canceled after
only eight episodes. Denise Richards was finally noticed when she
appeared in "Seinfeld", and was cast into "Tammy
and the T-Rex" in 1994. After completing that, she appeared
in a TV- movie called "Fifth Avenue". Her next role was
in "Nowhere", and finally she landed a part in "Starship
Starship Troopers was Denise's first major film.
She played a young starship officer in this futuristic movie. The
film itself was troubled by an expanding budget, film delays, and
a poor release date. While it did well in the box office, the profits
were not that good. There is some talks about a sequel, and hopefully
we can se Denise as ms. Ibanez again. Anyway Denise's real life
boyfriend is Patrick Muldoon, the same person who played her co-pilot
in the film.The next movie "Wild Things" really established
her as a sex symbol in Hollywood. She played a young and spoiled
high school girl who wantedmore than she already had. The movie
in itself is a thriller and also starred Neve Campbell, Matt Dillon
and Kevin Bacon.
most famous scene in the picture is the threesome between Denise,
Neve and Matt. This scene represented a real dilemma for Denise:
what to do about her parents. "They definitely want to see
the movie," she says, "but I don't want my dad to see
my breasts. I'm just hoping he'll cover his eyes." It is rumored
that Denise is talking to the producers of "Wild Things"
about a sequel.
Denise have really been successful so far when it comes to acting.
Her favorite actresses are Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lange, Kim Basinger
and Michelle Pffeifer. Hopefully she will have a career in front
of her that is as long and successful as her role models.
"The Internet's been so great, and it's so nice
to have fans do nice, elaborate websites, but I think the downside
is some of the things...for real fans to go on and see that 90 percent
of the information isn't true or to see pictures that aren't really
me, or for them to be able to sell these things, that's one of the
downsides, I think."
"My first kiss was with this boy behind a bus
stop at school. We planned the whole thing. I just remember it being,
like weird, it was a tongue kiss."
"Doing love scenes is always awkward. I mean,
it's just not a normal thing to go to work and lay in bed with your
"I found out early I could make more money modeling than I
could waitressing and scooping Haagen-Dazs. But I always wanted
to be an actress."
"I'm spontaneous. I love going from one thing to something
else and not knowing what I'm going to do next."
