Denise Richards

Spotlight

Kids mercilessly teased Denise Richards about her prominent pout in elementary school, but after growing into her “fish lips,” the model turned actress got the last laugh. She moved to Los Angeles in 1989 and stayed afloat with bit parts on TV shows like Saved By The Bell before finally BUST-ing out some of her best assets in Starship Troopers, Wild Things (The threesome scene with Neve Campbell became an Internet classic immediately.) and as a Bond girl in The World Is Not Enough. Sparks flew when she reconnected with previous Good Advice co-star Charlie Sheen on the set of Spin City in 2001. They wed less than a year later and bred two years after that. Her quick post-baby body transformation was captured nude in Playboy Magazine, but didn’t last long as she was pregnant with Sam’s sister by 2005. Sheen and Richards had separated by the time Lola was born, divorced by January 2006 and have spent the ensuing years going back and forth between mudslinging and restraining orders and vacationing as a family and working together on Sheen’s new sitcom Anger Management. She has moved on romantically with two rockers — Nikki Sixx and Richie Sambora, the ex of her ex-best friend Heather Locklear. She twice utilized the reality show comeback trend. She let cameras follow her family for 2008’s Denise Richards: It’s Complicated on E! and competed on Dancing With the Stars in 2009. She adopted baby Eloise, named by her daughters, in 2011.
