  • Golden Globe winner, American, movie and TV actress

    A very pleasant looking woman. She is a capable actress as well. Anne has been nominated for awards several times and won at least one Golden Globe. She rarely is seen without a smile on her face. As one of the top ranking guys on this site keeps cut and pasting on other profiles and could have done here, she stays out of the tabloids and you can believe she enjoys what she is doing.

That, I would have enjoyed seeing!moreless
