Object of our affection: Anna Faris, actress.
- Previously seen only in dramas, she showed off her flair for comedy — and became a star — as scream queen Cindy Campbell in the Scary Movie franchise.
- She stole her scenes as a thinly veiled Cameron Diaz-type in Lost in Translation and had a brief but memorable part in Brokeback Mountain.
- Late in the hit series' run, she guest starred on Friends in the pivotal role of Erica, the dim bulb who gave birth to Chandler and Monica's twins.
- Other films include a real scary movie (May), two co-starring roles opposite Ryan Reynolds (Waiting ..., Just Friends) and the comedies My Super Ex-Girlfriend and The House Bunny (available on DVD and Blu-raythis Friday).
- Next, she'll be seen in some more comedies (Young Americans, Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel, Observe and Report) and heard in the animated fantasy Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
