Sometimes a sense of humor is sexier than pure appearance, and if that’s the case, Téa Leoni is one of the sexiest women in Hollywood. Born in 1966 in New York City, Téa (pronounced TAY-ah) was brought up on a diet of private schools and professional parents, and followed that same track into college where she studied anthropology. After graduating, Téa traveled the Eastern hemisphere and worked in numerous positions, including modeling and as a crew hand on a commercial sailboat. These travels eventually perked her interest in acting, and after winning a role on an 80’s spin-off version of “Charlie’s Angels,” she continued to steal small parts in big-budget movies like “A League of Their Own” and “Wyatt Earp.”
Her first big role, as the damsel-in-distress, in the action-comedy “Bad Boys” launched her in to the limelight and helped her land a starring role in the ABC sitcom “The Naked Truth.” The short-lived series was, well, short-lived, and three seasons on the air, the show was axed and Téa was left to find more work. More roles in small films helped to keep her face in the news, but her biggest job to date didn’t come from acting at all, but rather as the newly wed wife of “X-Files” star David Duchovny. Téa took some major time off at the end of the 90’s to take care of her first child, but following the new millennium, the still-young actress got back to work in films like “Jurassic Park III,” “The Family Man,” and “Spanglish.” Till this day, Téa still hasn’t really broken out as an A-list actress, but she remains to be one of the funnier comedic actresses in the industry. And without the help of her husband’s success to boost her career, it looks like Téa will have to do it all on her own.

Téa on the Screen
After debuting alongside Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in the action-comedy film "Bad Boys," she was rewarded with her own TV show, "The Naked Truth." Though the series didn't last long, Téa became an instant hit with the men. Following a brief break from the big screen, Téa returned with roles in "Deep Impact" and "Jurassic Park III," before disappearing and remerging again after the millennium in the Adam Sandler drama "Spanglish" and the Jim Carrey "Fun with Dick and Jane."
"I have a fast swing and I can outdrive a lot of the men I play with. Of course, I only play with people from retirement communities. I can hit it 200 yards. I've seen 230."
On her childhood:
"I was one of the most brilliant liars as a child."
On showing her goods:
"I don't do T&A very well because I haven't got much of either."
