Christina Applegate - Biography

 

Christina Applegate (born November 25, 1971) is an American Emmy Award-winning and Golden Globe and Tony Award-nominated actress. She is best known for playing Kelly Bundy on the Fox Broadcasting Company sitcom Married... with Children. She has since established a film and television career, with major roles in several pictures, including Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, The Big Hit, The Sweetest Thing, Anchorman, Farce of the Penguins and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. She has also starred in numerous productions including the 2005 Broadway revival of the musical Sweet Charity. More recently, she played the lead character Samantha Newly in the ABC sitcom Samantha Who?.

Applegate was born in Hollywood, California. Her father, Robert W. Applegate, was a record producer and record company executive, and her mother, Nancy Lee Priddy, was a singer and actress. Her parents split up shortly after her birth. She has two half-siblings (Alisa and Kyle) from her father's remarriage. Following her parents' divorce, her mother had a relationship with musician Stephen Stills. It was through Stills' friendship with fellow musicians Paul Kantner and Grace Slick that Applegate became friends with their daughter, China Kantner.[
Christina Applegate made her TV debut at the age of just three months, appearing with her mother in both the soap opera Days of Our Lives and a commercial for Playtex baby bottles. Her first big screen appearance followed at age 7, when she was seen in the 1979 film, Jaws of Satan (a.k.a. King Cobra), followed by 1981's Beatlemania. She debuted in a television movie as Young Grace Kelly in the biopic, Grace Kelly (1983, opposite Cheryl Ladd), and appeared on her first TV series in Showtime's political comedy, Washingtoon (1985), in which she played a Congressman's daughter. She was also spotted as a guest in the shows, Father Murphy (1981), Charles in Charge (1984 and 1985) and Silver Spoons (1986).
In 1986, Applegate won the role of Robin Kennedy (1986-1987), a cop's daughter, on the police drama series Heart of the City. Meanwhile, she was also seen guest starring in the sitcoms All is Forgiven, Still the Beaver, Amazing Stories, and Family Ties episode Band on the Run (1987) as Kitten.
Applegate eventually scored her most memorable role of ditzy Kelly Bundy in Fox's comedy series Married... with Children. She portrayed her character for ten years (1987-1997). While working on the series, Applegate was seen in Dance 'Til Dawn (1988, NBC) and in Streets (1990), in which a teenage drug addict is stalked by a psychotic police officer. Applegate guest-starred in 21 Jump Street (1988), Top of the Heap (1991, as Kelly Bundy), and hosted Saturday Night Live (May 8, 1993) and Mad TV (1996).
The character of Sue Ellen Crandell in the comedy feature Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead (1991) was Applegate's first starring role in a mainstream film. She followed it up with films such as Vibrations (1995), Across the Moon (1995), Wild Bill (1995), Mars Attacks! (1996), and Nowhere (1997). After the sitcom Married... with Children was canceled in May 1997, Applegate starred as Claudine Van Doozen in the independent feature Claudine's Return (a.k.a. Kiss of Fire), was cast in the action-comedy The Big Hit, and played the fiancée of a Mob descendant in the Mafia satire Jane Austen's Mafia (1998).
In that same year, NBC handed her the title role in their sitcom Jesse. The series debuted in 1998, received rave reviews, and brought Applegate a People's Choice Award for Favorite Female Performer in a New TV series and the TV Guide Award for Star of a New Series as well as a nomination at the Golden Globe for Lead Actress in a Comedy. Though the series gained praise, it was canceled in 2000. Applegate was ambivalent about accepting the role:
“ This was a major commitment. I really had to sit and think about it. I eventually came to the conclusion that it came into my life for a reason. ”
The new millennium saw Applegate playing the dual role of a 12th-century noblewoman, Princess Rosalind, and her 21st-century descendant, Julia Malfete, in the time-travel comedy Just Visiting (2001). After gaining wide notice for playing Cameron Diaz's level-headed best friend, Courtney Rockcliffe, in The Sweetest Thing (2002), Applegate continued to win roles in such movies as Heroes (2002), the airplane comedy View from the Top (2003), Wonderland (2003), Grand Theft Parsons (2003), Surviving Christmas (2004) and Employee of the Month (2004). Behind the screen, she was the executive producer of Comforters, Miserable (2001).
Applegate also guest-starred on two episodes of Friends, in the ninth (2002) and tenth (2003) seasons, titled "The One with Rachel's Other Sister" and "The One Where Rachel's Sister Babysits" as Amy Green, Rachel Green's (Jennifer Aniston) younger sister. She won the 55th Annual Prime Time Emmy Award for Best Guest Actress in a Comedy for her performance in "The One with Rachel's Other Sister". On the silver screen, she portrayed TV anchorwoman Veronica Corningstone in the 2004 films Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and the DVD bonus film Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie (an alternative film comprising alternate takes and deleted scenes and story elements).
In addition to her screen work, Applegate has performed on stage in such productions as The Axeman's Jazz, Nobody Leaves Empty Handed, The Runthrough, as well as John Cassavetes' The Third Day (co-starring Gena Rowlands). In 2004, she debuted on the Broadway stage playing the title role of Charity Hope Valentine in a revival of the 1966 musical Sweet Charity. She eventually took home the 2005 Theatre World Award and was nominated for a 2005 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical.
While appearing in Sweet Charity, she broke her foot, and it was announced that the musical would close during previews. She persuaded the producers to rescind their decision, and on April 18, 2005, she made her Broadway debut. Sweet Charity ended its Broadway run on December 31, 2005. In 2006, she appeared in an advertising campaign for Hanes title "Look who we've got our Hanes on now". The campaign had started in 2005 but she, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Kevin Bacon were added to the ads in 2006.
In 2006, Applegate appeared in Jessica Simpson's music video "A Public Affair", alongside Eva Longoria Parker, Ryan Seacrest and Christina Milian.
Applegate starred in the ABC comedy, Samantha Who?, until it was cancelled on May 18, 2009. The series costarred Jean Smart, Jennifer Esposito, and Melissa McCarthy. The series was about a 30-year-old who, after a hit-and-run accident, develops amnesia and has to rediscover her life, her relationships and herself. Shortly after the cancellation was announced, Applegate began a campaign to get the show back into production, which was unsuccessful.
Applegate will play Elizabeth Montgomery of Bewitched fame, who died of colorectal cancer, in the upcoming film Everything Is Going to Be Just Fine, due to be released in 2009.
In January 2009, Applegate appeared with her TV brother David Faustino (Bud Bundy from Married with Children) in an episode of Faustino's show Star‑ving.

In October 2001, Applegate married longtime boyfriend Johnathon Schaech in a small Palm Springs ceremony attended by family and close friends. Schaech filed for divorce in November 2005, citing irreconcilable differences. Applegate and Schaech's final divorce papers were entered August 10, 2007 in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Her close friends include Lance Bass.
On July 1, 2008, her close friend and ex-boyfriend Lee Grivas was found dead of an apparent drug overdose.
In a January 2009 interview on Anytime with Bob Kushell, Applegate stated that she hates the paparazzi. Additionally, she appeared in recent interviews on various talk shows such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show and on the 2009 TV Land Awards, receiving the "Innovator Award" along with her fellow cast of Married... with Children.
Her current boyfriend (2009) is Martyn LeNoble. She topped the list of People Magazine's Most Beautiful People in 2009.
Applegate is a vegetarian.

 

Christina Applegate - Personal Quotes

 

"This was a major commitment. I really had to sit and think about it. I eventually came to the conclusion that it came into my life for a reason." - on accepting her role in the sitcom "Jesse" (1998).

"There are a lot of sacrifices a mother makes when she's raising a child by herself. I saw it when I was growing up, watching all my mother did for me. But it wasn't until recently that I fully understood the price she paid because of how we had to struggle."

"The person who I have my child with is going to be the right person. I don't want to raise a child by myself. I could do it. But I definitely don't want to. I want to be a mother who has the original father there. And I want to be with that person until I'm 80 years old, sitting out on the porch with our glasses of lemonade, laughing about our lives."

"The show definitely shocked and disgusted people. But, privately, they enjoyed laughing at it. I think all too often people look at the perfect families on television and think 'Why can't my family be like that?' In the case of "Married with Children" (1987), people were able to say, 'Thank God my family's not like that!'" - on her sitcom "Married with Children" (1987), which ran from 1987 to 1997.

"I've always been shy and sort of vulnerable. My mom says that when she would drop me off at school, I'd stand back and check out the situation - see if it was safe before I'd join the other kids."

"I wasn't one to go out and buy a new car and stereo system and expensive clothes. My mom helped keep me grounded." - on becoming a TV star in her teens

"We're best friends. And that spark is always there. I can't wait to see him, even though I saw him a few hours ago." - about her husband actor Johnathon Schaech.

"I started doing radio commercials for Kmart when I was 4. They had to splice all my consonants together because I couldn't talk very well. But these jobs helped my mother and me put food on the table. It took the two of us working."

"It was not easy for my mother, being a struggling actress and raising a child. We were these two sort of vagabonds, never knowing where the money was going to come from. She always says she couldn't afford a babysitter, which is why she put me on the stage."

"It's one of those choices that I can honestly say was a big mistake. I wish I had a better knowledge of history and the other things I could've learned. Of course, nothing is stopping me from learning now. In fact, I'm probably better prepared." - on having quit school

"Every single kid in my group of friends at school was from a single-parent family."
