Denise Lee Richards was born on
February 17, 1972 in Downers Grove, Illinois. She currently lives in Los
Angeles, CA. She moved to California to attend high school at El Camino
High as the clas of 1989. After graduation, she began to pursue her
acting career in Los Angeles. She developed a modeling career in high
school, appearing from Tokyo to New York. She has put modeling on the
side to appear in movies.
Denise's acting career is beginning to
take off, especially after two successful movies, Starship Troopers, and
Wild Things. She has both the acting talent and beauty to be a big time
actress, and the only thing holding her up is time. There are two more
movies in the wings for Denise, which will both be released in 1999.
Dairy Queens looks like it will be very promising, about beauty queens
fighting for the title in Missouri.
Starship Troopers was Denise's first
major film. The film itself was troubled by an expanding budget, film
delays, and a poor release date. While it did well in the box office,
the profits were not super. There is talks for a part 2...hopefully
Denise will return as Ms. Ibanez if they choose to do it.
Exposure to the media has grown for Denise over the last year. She has
appeared on almost all the major entertainment shows, including
Entertainment Weekly, Access Hollywood, and E!'s news program.
She also has guest stared on The
Tonight Show and presented most recently at the MTV Music Awards.
