It’s no surprise to anyone that Denise Richards isn’t a good actress, but she certainly serves her purpose as a nice piece of eye candy. Denise has got the body of a porn star and the face of angel, and there’s no straight man on this planet that hasn’t fantasized about being with her after seeing “Wild Things.” She’s a goddess of goddesses, and we’d all like to give Charlie “Sex Addict” Sheen a good slap on the back of the head for screwing things up with her. Born in 1972 in a small town within Illinois, Denise moved to the West Coast with her family when she was fifteen. Shortly after graduating from high school in 1989, Denise was signed by a modeling agency and she traveled around the world as the makeup girl for the Bonne Bell cosmetics company. Just like nearly every other model with aspirations to become famous, Denise began to audition for roles in TV and film, and despite warnings from her family and friends, she found it easy adapting to the new surroundings. Along with guest spots on popular television series like “Saved By the Bell,” “Married…with Children” and “Beverly Hills, 90210,” Denise’s most important role was as the daughter of a CBS executive on “Seinfeld,” which later served as the launching pad for her new career.
After making her rounds on the television circuit with recurring roles in “Melrose Place” and “Spin City,” Denise received her first starring role in the cult sci-fi film, “Starship Troopers.” Denise followed up the wild success of the bug-invasion film with her sexy portrayal alongside Matt Dillon and Neve Campbell in “Wild Things.” The steamy threesome scene in the film is perhaps the most famous sex scene in the last twenty years. Denise continued to ride the wave of success with appearances as the Bond Girl in “The World is Not Enough” and as White She-Devil in “Undercover Brother.” More recently, Denise choice to settle down and start a family with actor/husband Charlie Sheen, but less than a year after giving birth to their first child, she proved that she was still on top by appearing nude in the December 2004 issue of Playboy. Since then, Denise has managed to appear in small roles for “Scary Movie 3” and “Love Actually,” and it looks like she hasn’t called it quits just yet.

Kate Beckinsale on the ScreenDenise isn't one of the better actresses in Hollywood today, but she's still one of the best looking, and we won't let her lack of talent keep her down. In fact, Denise has done pretty well over the last decade in the industry, with appearances in cult classics like "Starship Troopers" and "Wild Things," franchises like "The World is Not Enough" and "Scary Movie 3," as well as box-office underdogs like "Love Actually" and "Undercover Brother." OK, so they're not exactly the type of roles you'd call your mother about, but who's really keeping track of the wins and losses for this sultry bombshell? Round two with Neve Campbell, anyone?
Kate SaysOn filmmaking:
"Doing love scenes is always awkward. I mean, it's just not a normal thing to go to work and lay in bed with your co-worker."
On kissing Neve Campbell in "Wild Things":
"I don't know what the big issue is it. It's a role, and I think a bigger issue is made out of it. It was a part I took and it's what the character did, so I did it."
