Jessica Michibata

Jessica Michibata (道端ジェシカ ,Michibata Jieshika?), born Jessica Celeste Michibata (道端・ジェシカ・セレステMichibata Jieshika Seresute on October 21, 1984 in Fukui Prefecture, Japan) is a Japanese fashion model.

Modeling can be a very glamorous life but it is also hard work. Long days rehearsing, endless costume changes, battling against calories and constant attention to skin care are all part of the game that top model Jessica Michibata knows so well. “I’ve been pretty lucky. I don’t seem to put on weight. Maybe I have good genes,” she says, chatting in English, something she rarely gets to do these days.

Born in Fukui to a Japanese mother and Argentinean father who is half-Spanish, half-Italian, Michibata has lived all her life in Japan, the last 10 years in Tokyo. She has two sisters who also do modeling. “I used to visit my older sister at her modeling agency in Tokyo, and when I was 12 or 13, they asked me if I’d like to try it,” says Michibata, 24.

As a child, she recalls dreaming of a very different career path. “When I was in high school, I wanted to be a coroner. That was my biggest dream. Everyone thinks I’m kidding when I say that. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go to university because I was already working.”

For the past few years, Michibata has kept up a hectic pace of modeling and other projects. She had a segment on the TBS variety program “Cinema Style,” introducing the movie of the week and she was a movie critic for Soup magazine for four years. She was recently the main model for Peach John lingerie and currently has contracts with Lux, Samantha Thavasa, Evian and Seiko, as well as appearing in fashion magazines such as Glamorous, Classy, Sweet and VoCE. Most recently, she took part in the very popular Tokyo Girls Collection before 22,000 screaming teenagers. “That was fun but tiring,” she says. “You have to be there at 6:30 a.m. and rehearse for four hours. There is no time to rest. The show went for six hours.”

Standing 173 cm tall, Michibata says a typical day can sometimes start at 6:30 a.m. and she won’t get home until midnight. “I know a lot of girls who worry about their weight, skin and hair. Some of them fast or just eat snacks. In this profession, you have to be healthy and happy inside, otherwise it shows through.”

Michibata certainly seems happy inside. “I’m good at finding a balance in my life. I love chocolates and ice cream, for example,” she says. “I go to the gym whenever I get time, and I jog. The problem with Tokyo is that whatever sport you want to do costs a lot. When I was growing up in Fukui, you could pretty much do anything.”

Michibata attracts a lot of fan mail through her blog and MySpace. “Young women want to know how they can become models. They want to know my story. Guys send fan mail too.” And what is her type of guy? “I like older men, smart guys, guys who work really hard like me. My type is the actor Benecio del Toro. He is the best of the best,” she answers.

Having traveled abroad often for work, Michibata says she has become interested in a world completely different from the glamour of her profession—United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) activities. “I’d like to visit a refugee camp and meet children there,” she says.

While models used to have a short “shelf” life, Michibata says there are more opportunities for older women now. “There are so many magazines targeting all ages,” she says. “I’m not sure what I’ll do after modeling. I’d like to try something I haven’t done, maybe acting, or do fashion designing.” Her own style tends to be more casual. “My job is to wear other people’s fancy clothes, so I tend to keep it simple at home. The funny thing is so many people think we get to keep all the clothes we model. I‘d have to build another house just to store them all,” she laughs.

Gwyneth Kate Paltrow

Born on September 27, 1972
Gwyneth Kate Paltrow is an Oscar-, Golden Globe- and double Screen Actors Guild Award- winning American actress. She is married to Chris Martin, lead singer of British rock band Coldplay.

"[On her 1997 break up with Brad Pitt]: It really changed my life. When we split up, something changed, permanently, in me. My heart sort of broke that day, and it will never be the same. "

"[on being pregnant while filming Proof (2005)] It was very, very difficult. I was trying not to barf. I felt terrible. "

"When you`re so out there in the public eye, people are constantly criticizing every aspect about you. "

Even actresses that you really admire, like Reese Witherspoon, you think, another romantic comedy? You know. You see her in something like Walk the Line (2005) and think, "God, you`re so great!" And then you think, "Why is she doing these stupid romantic comedies?" But of course, it`s for money and status. I just think, "Wouldn`t it be great if all of those movies people went to see were about real women?"

"I realised life is so short and precious, you should do things that make you feel inspired, that push you and teach you something. I`d rather not have a big house, a huge closet of clothes, diamonds and a private plane, and instead a body of work that I`m proud of. "

"The Jewish part of me is superstitious. "

"I try to remember, as I hear about friends getting engaged, that it`s not about the ring and it`s not about the wedding. It`s a grave thing, getting married. And it`s easy to get swept up in the wrong things. "

"Beauty, to me is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick."

"The work gets more difficult as you get older. You learn more and you gather more experiences, there is deeper pain and higher highs. "

"Women were real box office stars in the `40s, more so than men. People loved to see women`s films. I think it was better then, except for the studio system"
- Gwyneth Paltrow

Though Gwyneth Paltrow is beautiful, she doesn't have the same appeal that the Scarlett Johanssons of the acting world do. Her sexiness is more subdued, while her intelligence and grace seem to be the main cause of her appeal.

Paltrow made her professional stage debut in 1990. Her most recent stage appearance was in Proof at London's Donmar Warehouse. Her debut film was Shout (1991). She also appeared in Hook (1991), Malice (1993), and Flesh and Bone (1993).Paltrow starred in Se7en (1995), opposite Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. The film was hugely successful commercially and critically. Then in 1996 she starred in Emma, where she received strongly positive critical acclaim, particularly in the UK for her impressive English accent, as well as in Europe and Asia.

In an interview with The Guardian, Paltrow admitted that she divided her career into those movies she did for love and those films she did for money: The Royal Tenenbaums, Proof, and Sylvia fell into the former category, while View from the Top and Shallow Hal were in the latter.

Since winning the Oscar for Shakespeare in Love, Paltrow's film success has been less noteworthy. She said she was unequipped to cope with the pressure, leading her to make several bad movie choices, agreeing with peers who believe the win is a curse. She has also made several cameo roles, such as her appearance in the Brittany Murphy film Love and Other Disasters, and several smaller roles, such as her role in Running With Scissors and Infamous, in which she sang Cole Porter's "What Is This Thing Called Love?".

She appeared in the 2005 film Proof, based on the play of the same name, in which she plays a young protagonist, mathematician and daughter Catherine.

In May 2005, Paltrow became the new face of Estée Lauder's Pleasures perfume. She appeared in Chicago on August 17, 2007, to sign bottles of the perfume, and on July 8, 2008, she promoted Lauder's Sensuous perfume in New York along with the company's three other spokesmodels. Estée Lauder donates a minimum of $500,000 of sales of items from the 'Pleasures Gwyneth Paltrow' collection to breast cancer research.

Paltrow serves on the board of the Robin Hood Foundation, a charitable organization which attempts to alleviate problems caused by poverty in New York City. In 2006 she became the new face for Bean Pole International, a Korean fashion brand. She starred along with actor Daniel Henney in several commercial films. In October 2007, Paltrow signed up for a PBS television series Spain... on the road Again with Mario Batali that showcases the food and culture of Spain.

In September 2008, she launched a weekly online upscale lifestyle newsletter, Goop, encouraging readers to 'nourish the inner aspect'. The website's title is derived from the initials of her first and last names. Each week, the newsletter focuses on an action: Make, Go, Get, Do, Be, and See. It has been ridiculed by a number of news outlets, including E-Online, The Independent, and the UK's Daily Mirror.

In February 2009, Paltrow received a Grammy nomination for her reading of the classic bear books of author Bill Martin, Jr.

In May 2005, she publicly announced that she had suffered from depression after the death of her father and the birth of her first child. She practices yoga daily, and follows a macrobiotic diet, although she told People in 2005 that, "I'm not as stringent as I was in the past. Now I'll have cheese once in a while or white flour, but I still believe in whole grains and no sugar."

In the May 2008 issue of Vogue, Paltrow revealed that she suffered from post-partum depression after giving birth to her second child, Moses. She stated that she felt "out of her body", "disconnected, "down" and "pessimistic”.

In a 2007 interview, Paltrow explained that she wasn't sure if she wanted more children. "My husband really wants to adopt," she told the interviewer, "So I don't know; I'm sort of open for anything."

Cameron Michelle Diaz

Born on August 30, 1972
Cameron Michelle Diaz is an American actress. In August 2008, Forbes Magazine listed Diaz as the highest paid actress in Hollywood. She reportedly earned $50 million in the period of a year ending June 2008, for her roles in What Happens in Vegas and the Shrek films.

"I`m like every other woman: a closet full of clothes, but nothing to wear: So I wear jeans. quoted in Woman`s World 1-3-06"

"Most men
are the same. They're only interested in fucking you and they don't care whether you're happy or sad. They just want to get on with their business in and out of bed, and they make you feel that you don't count except as their sex toy."

"I would kiss a frog even if there were no promise of a Prince Charming popping out of it. I love frogs. I`d lick him."

:People think I`m trying to make a fashion statement because I never wear a bra. It`s really that I`m a tomboy at heart.:

"The last couple of years were hell. Like, I can`t even tell you, it was so hard. I didn`t know how to handle it. But I think I`m in a much better place now, because I stepped away for a second and took a breath. Hollywood is a funny place. It offers so much, but it can also take a lot away from you."

"Growing up, I was the plain one. I had no style. I was the tough kid with the comb in the back pocket and the feathered hair."

"We have a voice now and we`re not using it. Women have so much to lose. I mean, we could lose the right to our bodies. If you think rape should be legal then don`t vote. But if you think you have a right to your body and you have a right to say what happens to you and fight off that danger of losing that, then you should vote."

"I didn't realize [The Mask] was a fairly large film that I was a part of. Halfway through I was going, 'Is there any place that my mom and dad can see this film?' and they're going, 'Cameron, at the theaters.' I had no idea. Durrrrrrr. I'm blonde. I'm allowed."

- Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz's first role as the sex kitten in The Mask (1996) is the best example of art imitating life that we can think of. Standing at a statuesque 5'9", this long-legged, ab-ripped beauty has the kind of body women strive for and men drool over. Couple that with her sparkling eyes, infectious smile and adorable dimples, and Cameron Diaz is one sexy lady.

At 16, she began her career as a fashion model. Diaz signed with top modeling agency Elite Model Management. After graduating from high school, she went to work in Japan and met video director Carlo de la Torre. On her return to the U.S., she moved in with him. For the next few years, her modeling took her around the world, working for contracts with major companies. She modeled for designers such as Calvin Klein and Levi's. She was featured on the cover of the July 1990 issue of Seventeen magazine.

At 21, Diaz auditioned for The Mask, even though she had no previous acting experience,based on the recommendation of an agent for Elite who met the film's producers while they were searching for the female lead. After obtaining the lead female role, she immediately started acting lessons. Over the next three years, she won roles in low-budget, independent films, such as The Last Supper, Feeling Minnesota, and She's the One, preferring to feel her way effectively into the business. She then regained mainstream success with her roles in My Best Friend's Wedding and There's Something About Mary, a film for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe in the category of Best Actress - Musical or Comedy. She won critical acclaim for her performance in Being John Malkovich, which earned her Best Supporting Actress nominations at the Golden Globes, the BAFTA Awards, and the SAG Awards.

During the 1999-2000 period, Diaz starred in many films, such as Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her, A Life Less Ordinary, Any Given Sunday, and the hit adaptation of Charlie's Angels. In 2001, she won nominations for Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, and the AFI Awards for Vanilla Sky, and also voiced Princess Fiona in Shrek, for which she earned $10 million. In 2003, Diaz received another Golden Globe nomination for Martin Scorsese's epic Gangs of New York, and became the third actress (after Wedding costar Julia Roberts and Reese Witherspoon) to earn $20 million for a role, receiving the sum for Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Her next film appearances were in Shrek 2, In Her Shoes, and The Holiday . During 2004 and early 2005, Diaz explored some of the planet's environmentally unique locations while discovering ways to help preserve them for the 10-episode MTV series Trippin' which featured numerous celebrities and friends of Diaz, such as Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore, Mark Hoppus, Eva Mendes, and Justin Timberlake.

Diaz returned to the screen for Shrek the Third in 2007, in which she co-starred with her boyfriend Justin Timberlake. She was set to team up again with The Mask co-star Jim Carrey in the film Fun with Dick and Jane, but dropped out to star in In Her Shoes. She also appeared in the romantic comedy What Happens in Vegas, opposite Ashton Kutcher. She will also appear in Shrek 4 and is also set to star in The Box, a horror thriller in 2008 co-starring James Marsden.

On July 7, 2007, Diaz participated at Live Earth in New York by introducing Bon Jovi and The Police. In 2007, People ranked her as the Best Dressed Female Celebrity.

When Diaz was asked if she can speak Spanish she said:

I go, "God, you know, it all sounds so familiar. I know what you're saying, I really do. I just cannot respond to you back in Spanish. I can barely speak English properly." I didn't grow up in a Cuban or Latin community. I grew up in Southern California on the beach, basically. And I'm third generation. I'm of Cuban descent.

In 2004, Maxim ranked this rising beauty as No. 22 in their annual hot 100; she ranked No. 11 in 2005. Finally, in 2006, she was ranked in the top 10 at No. 7.

Demi moore

Born on November 11, 1962
Demetria Gene "Demi" Moore Kutcher is an American actress. She became well-known after a string of 1980s teen-oriented movies, and was one of the best known actresses of 1990s Hollywood. She is married to actor Ashton Kutcher.

"I'm sure there are a lot of people who think I'm a bitch."

"I want things to be the best they can be. I want greatness."

"I said I would get better with each baby, and I have. "

"Once you`ve tasted a bit of success, it`s more
challenging. We have to continue to be willing to take a risk so that we don`t get too safe. Unwillingness to risk failure is always there, but it gets harder when you feel you have more to lose. So the bette..."

"Time is an amazing equalizer. I think if you stay true to yourself and keep moving forward, things
come around."

"There`s this idea that if you take your clothes off, somehow you must have loose morals. There`s still a negative attitude in our society towards women who use a strength that`s inherent - their femininity - in any way that might be considered seductive."

"I didn`t want to work and drag my kids with me while they were trying to cross this huge transition. I wanted them to become as stable and as confident as possible. There are people who go through this and don`t have the financial means, but I did. It was..."

"I don`t like to take my clothes off."

"I think we all want the same things. We all want to feel loved, and feel a part of something, but we all have self-doubt no matter where we came from"

- Demi Moore

Demi Moore was so sexy in Indecent Proposal (1993) that Robert Redford forked over a million bucks just to get her between the sheets for one night. Believability would have gone right out the window if they had cast an actress like, say, Rosie O'Donnell.

It's no wonder she has posed in the buff for the likes of Oui and Vanity Fair. Demi Moore is one of the sexiest movie stars in history, according to Playboy magazine, and not just because she smokes cigars and has a husky voice... Demi Moore does it for us big time.

Moore's film debut was in the 1982 3-D science fiction/horror film, Parasite, which was a hit on the drive-in circuit, ultimately grossing $7 million.[2] However, Moore was not widely known until she played the part of Jackie Templeton on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital, from 1982-1983. Appropriately, she also had an uncredited cameo at the end of the 1982 spoof Young Doctors in Love.

In the mid-1980s, Moore appeared in the youth-oriented films St. Elmo's Fire and About Last Night, and she was often listed as one of the Brat Pack, a name the media dubbed a certain group of top young actors at the time. After the commercial success of Ghost, Moore was given more prominent roles in A Few Good Men, Indecent Proposal, Disclosure and The Hunchback of Notre Dame for which she was the first actress to reach the $10 million salary mark. During the early 1990s, she was the highest paid actress in Hollywood. She never duplicated the success of Ghost and had a string of less successful films like The Scarlet Letter, The Juror, Striptease, and G.I. Jane. Meanwhile, Moore's Passion of Mind co-star Joss Ackland lambasted Moore by describing her as being "not very bright or talented". although he worked with her again on Flawless in 2008. At the same time she produced and starred in a TV mini-series called If These Walls Could Talk, written by Nancy Savoca. A three-part series on abortion, Savoca directed two segments, including the one in which Moore played a single woman in the 1950s seeking a back-alley abortion. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress for that role.

Moore was a founding "celebrity investor" in the Planet Hollywood chain of international theme restaurants (modeled after the Hard Rock Cafe and launched in New York on October 22, 1991) along with Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and then-husband Bruce Willis.

After a break from her acting career, Moore returned to the screen as a former member of Charlie's Angels gone bad in the 2003 film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. In 2006, she appeared in Bobby which featured an all-star cast including her husband Ashton Kutcher although they did not appear in any scenes together. On June 1, 2007, her most recent film, Mr. Brooks, was released. She appeared in Jon Bon Jovi's longform video "Destination Anywhere" as Janie.

In2006, Moore became the new face of the prestigious Cosmetic brand Helena Rubinstein.
