Christina Applegate, Nearly 40?

26 November 2010

We've been big Christina Applegate fans here at The Fan Carpet since her feisty yet endearing performance as Sue Ellen in the 1991 cult-classic Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.

Can you believe that was 10 years ago? (once again, we feel old) but perhaps not as old as she does.. as the Samantha Who star turned 39 yesterday (November 25th).

She certainly doesn't look it, but yet if we consider everything she's been through thus far, we are actually surprised at just how young she is!

The actress really has been through it all, she won an Emmy Award in 2003, divorced her husband in 2005, won a Tony in 2006 and was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008.

Christina has had a steady career spanning almost 30 years and we are only going to see more of her. Next up she stars in Hall Pass alongside Owen Wilson and Alyssa Milano due in UK cinemas March 2011.

.. Oh, and did you know she was one of the founding members of the Pussycat Dolls, which debuted at Johnny Depp's Viper Room on the Sunset Strip in 1995?

Talking of the Viper Room, she was there the night River Phoenix collapsed and witnessed the seizure that eventually lead to his death in 1993.

Christina is currently engaged to Martyn Lenoble, a Dutch bass player is expecting her first child in December.

So it seems this actress has in fact done one hell of a lot for only 40, so we take our hat off to her achievements and look forward to seeing much much more. Happy Birthday Christina!
