Actress Anna Faris made a name for herself in broad comedies, starting with the horror spoof-within-a-spoof Scary Movie. Faris made an immediate impact, which led to several sequels atop other studio comedies like The Hot Chick. Changing direction, she scored a memorable turn in the acclaimed indie Lost in Translation, which opened the doors to features like Just Friends and the Oscar-winning drama, Brokeback Mountain. Faris also excelled in television, with her role on Friends as the birth mother of the baby Monica and Chandler plan to adopt. Roles opposite Seth Rogen in Observe and Report, and as a former Playboy Playmate kicked out of the mansion in The House Bunny cemented Faris as the go-to actress for Hollywood comedies. She can next be seen in the comedy, What’s Your Number, in theatres this Friday September 30th!
