Kerry Washington

She is now in the popular Scandal on ABC and has a starring role of Olivia Pope who plays an intelligent, professional “Fixer” she knows how to make issues disappear before anyone is aware of their presences in politics or any crisis in the White House and beyond.

Lift with Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington

Olivia quit her previous job as a White House Communications Director for President Grant---although the president and Olivia still love each other she had to leave for her own stability.

The popular show is getting hotter with fans with the current events of: President Grant has been shot and he is hanging on to life with a thread---chaos has taken over.

Kerry has 46 titles to her credit---movies and television. I wish her well as she has become one of my top shining stars to watch---she is a great actress.

And I am sure everyone wants to know is Kerry Washington dating? The answer is, she was married in June to Nnamdi Asomugha. I know that makes a lot of men sad to hear that news.

I wish her and Nnamdi all the happiness in the world.

The best news for Kerry and Nnamdi they are going to have a baby. Yes, Kerry is pregnant, and she glows with happiness. Best Wishes to all three.

Piper Perabo

Piper Lisa Perabo was born October 31, 1976, in Dallas Texas moved to New York after she graduated from college to start her acting career.

She had a few short roles in the beginning was good for her career. However, the role that rocketed her acting career into Movie Orbit was playing Violet Sanford in Coyote Ugly.

Violet’s dream is to be a famous song writer, so she moves to New York to begin her career.

She stars on one of my favorite shows “Covert Affairs” as Annie Walker is a CIA Operative. This will be her fourth season and the show is still very popular.

And, how could it not be with Piper and her sweet smile and quick actions all over the screen.

If there is anyone reading this that has not seen Covert Affairs then do yourself a favor and watch one show. I think you will become a fan---I know I am.

Piper has 38 titles to her credit and has a new movie opening this year. She has played with Hollywood’s top stars and her fans are watching her star rise above the clouds soaring into orbit.

The men want to know: Who is Piper dating? Does Piper Perabo have a boyfriend? We will have to wait for the answers. However, I hope she is happy and enjoying her life.

And we can support her by watching her movies. Covert Affairs was cancelled after the 5th season in 2014---sad, but true.

We can watch Covert Affairs DVD's and have a Covert Affairs weekend of Annie, Ryan, Auggie, Joan, Arthur, Calder and the rest of the cast. I will miss this show because I wrote about it for three years and they were like family to all the fans that read my reviews.

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore DOB: February 2, 1975, Culver City, California. Although most of us remember first seeing Drew Barrymore in E.T. she began her career as a three- year-old baby in a Television movie, 'Suddenly Love'.

Drew has 64 credited titles to her credit, and she is a producer of over a dozen TV series and movies and has directed as well. Our sweet face little Drew we saw in E.T. has grown up and now has a baby of her own. She is still the delightful, free-spirited and multi-talented lady. Her latest movie is---Big Miracle---which opened in February 2012.

I am so happy that Drew now has a family of her own--- her happiness shines through---as she appears more beautiful than ever. Her life is just beginning to shimmer now she has a baby star and husband star in her life to bring her joy. My best wishes to Drew who has finally found her dream.

Drew Barrymore

It is my honor to pay tribute to and share my favorite actresses whose beauty and multi-talents has mesmerized us for many years. Their talents range from singing, dancing, writing, producing and directing.

Many started at a very young age like Drew Barrymore---while we watched in awe as they grew-up from children to the lovely young women---they are today. No one will ever forget E.T. And that precious little Drew face with her expressions. She stole my heart then and became one of my favorites and I’ve enjoyed her movies. I have been a devoted fan for many years. I watch and support all my favorites.

Drew is a descendant of the Barrymore’s who were actors and actresses; therefore, the performing gene was passed down to her. Drew has stayed a true-blue Barrymore by using her gift.

We all miss her dad---John Drew Barrymore who died in 2004---it was too soon for him to go. And I am sure he was very proud of Drew career and how she matured into a special person. I am a fan of Drew Barrymore movies---she has more movies planned in her future.

Angelina Jole

Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson and Angelina Jolie

Some in this age category have parents or family members who are actors or actresses, or both---Kate Hudson’s mother is Goldie Hawn---one of my super-favorites.

And Angelina Jolie’s father is John Voight---I remember seeing her at the awards when she was very young holding her father’s hand---he is a great actor.

She was a beautiful child then and now a lovely lady and mother.

And then the brave ones who came to Hollywood on their own from all over the United States and other countries to obtain a career as an actress. All alone, not knowing anyone---living with four or five roommates to be able to afford a place to live.

Many young hopefuls came with little money, but found jobs working as waitresses, barmaids, in night clubs and various other places. To pay their way until getting a part in the movies.

They were unwavering, assertive with one aspiration in mind---to be an actress---a magnificently great one---and they have arrived with fireworks blazing on the screen, stage and television.

Every week one or more of my favorites are invited into my home with one of their movies---and they are welcomed, to enrich my life with their amazing talents.

All my favorites have earned their place in the spotlight with all the accolades collected each day---they deserve every one of them.

Acting is hard and dedicated work---they work long hours and are just as tired as anyone else at the end of the day.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway

Ann Hathaway wins an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in "Les Miserables." I do not understand all the negative press about her, and I do hope it will stop.

I find her charming, energetic and very talented. I did not see “Les Misérables” it was too depressing for my taste---but then that is just me. I have seen Ann in many other films, and I think she is great.

So, I will cheer her on as she has worked very hard to get there she is today. Therefore, take time out to enjoy your Oscar---Ann and I will be looking for your next great movie.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway DOB: 11/12/1982 Brooklyn, New York. Anne’s first movie was a Walt Disney Movie. The title was---The Other Side of Heaven---and her co-star was Christopher Gorman.

They both looked very young in this movie; about a Mormon Missionary who travels to the inaccessible Tongan Islands during the 1950’s---leaving Anne Hathaway behind. This is a good movie about love, dedication, adventure and making a difference in the world.

Anne’s latest Movie---Les Misérables--- will open on Christmas Day---December 2, 2012. She plays the part of Fantine the mother of Cosette. sadly, she was born out of wedlock. In this movie Anne does have her beautiful long hair cut off.

Movies with Ann Hathaway are as popular today as they were new. However, people who search for her name mainly do so as Hathaway Ann, which is fine as I believe her last name is easier to remember.

Jennifer Garner in Pearl Harbor

Jennifer Garner

Jennifer’s star is shining brightly and she deserves all the blessings she has received. She is a wife to the handsome and classy Ben Affleck and they have three beautiful children (two girls and a boy) together and she is an actress.

She glows with happiness and who could blame her---and I wish her the very best that life has to offer. Jennifer became popular with the show “Alias.” Jennifer has won 7 Golden Globes and many other awards. She has 42 titles to her credit and more planned for the future.

She has taken time out to be a mom and has a lot of help from Ben in this area---as we see him out with the children shopping and going around town--- so Jennifer can rest a bit with their young son.

Such a sweet loving family---true love can soar through all life’s little issues---and sparkle with happiness. And, I hope the paparazzi will leave Jennifer Gardner's kids alone. Children under 18 should not be photographed without the parents' consent.

Sweet Home Alabama

I love this movie---I watched it over the years so many times on my video that I wore it out and I had to buy a DVD.

It is such sweet tender movie of Melanie Smooter (Reese Witherspoon) country girl turns NY City girl as she advanced in her career of designing clothes. And has made a name for herself---forgetting her Alabama roots for a few years.

Then she finds herself engaged to Andrew Hennings (Patrick Dempsey) which created an issue because Melanie is not divorced from her first husband Jake Perry (Josh Lucas).

This is when I started talking to the movie by saying " My mercy---how could you forget Jake?"---Josh Lucas is very good in this role---it is so real.

I love Reese Witherspoon movies and I have my little favorites like everyone else. And Sweet Home Alabama is one of them. And, to the ones who have not seen it---you are missing a great movie.

I am going to watch this movie tonight again---even though I know everyone's part by heart---it is still worth my time. I love this movie and I believe it is the best one for both Reese and Josh.

Have you seen Jennifer and Ben Affleck in Pearl Harbor? They did not play opposite but both were in the movie and It was a good love story.

Have a great week ahead.


Victoria Lynn from Arkansas, USA on March 03, 2013:

Wow, what a list! I agree with many of them. I think Drew is adorable still! I do not care for Cameron Diaz at all, and I don't like Angelina Jolie much. The rest I either like or am not familiar with. Kate Hudson is a good one. I've always liked her mom's stuff, too. Anyway, I enjoyed this hub. Many votes!

I visited my sister Paula last week and my little Collyns, she is 18 months old. She is my Paula's youngest granddaughter---I got a lot of sugar while I was there---it is the kind without calories--just hugs and kisses.

From my home to yours,

Have a wonderful Holiday,

Suzie from Carson City on December 20, 2012:

Bobbi....Great List! I really like the majority of these talented women....some I can't actually comment on, as I'm not familiar with their work. "Drew" has been a favorite of mine and I love Charlize. That South African beauty is literally a Powerhouse of an actress. She was near total perfection in "Monster" (about Eileen Wronos) I thoroughly enjoyed this Bobbi......a refreshing change from some of the monotony.

While I'm here....I want to wish you and yours, a Blessed and Joyous Holiday Season.......Peace, Paula
