There's young actresses like Kirsten Dunst and Reese Witherspoon that have made amazing choices in their career and create this longevity - like you know they're going to be around for a long, long time and make movies that matter.

    • Emmanuelle: (on "Entourage") You know, Entourage is the biggest surprise of my career. It's never really been my dream to be on a TV series. But every pilot season, my agent wants me to do something. So this time I said, Okay, look, if I do television, I want to do an HBO show.

    Emmanuelle is a decent enough actress, but I can't say that I've seen her in much other than "Entourage," where she plays E's girlfriend.
  • This born canadian actress has played in such films such as 100 Girls, Sown Day, On The Line, and In The Mix. She has even guest stared in the teen drama the O.C.moreless

    She is a great actress but I guess I am a bit bias because she is my cousin. I was so proud of her when I saw that she was on the O.C. because it is one of my favorite shows. I am still vary proud of her and I am always looking out for her newest project. I have to atmit that I still have not seen In The Mix but I can not wait ot see it. I guess the acting jean runs in the family, since I act as well. I am so amazed at how far she has come. I am really proud of you and keep up the great work.moreless
