Highest Rated: 100% Man Made (2018)

Lowest Rated: 10% House of D (2004)

Birthday: Feb 25, 1966

Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

With an adept comedic style and blonde beauty that was repeatedly likened to 1930s screwball comedy queen, Carole Lombard, Téa Leoni brought an intelligence and grace to the big and small screens in a way few modern actresses have. Candid, brazen and witty on- and off-screen, Leoni's personality resonated throughout her work in both dramatic and comedic roles. Whether playing a divorced tabloid photographer on "The Naked Truth" (NBC, 1996-1998), a wry key-witness with legs to die for in "Bad Boys" (1995), an intrepid reporter who discovers a government cover-up in "Deep Impact" (1998) or a neurotic, overbearing mother in "Spanglish" (2004), it was Leoni's knack for delivering deadpan one-liners that made her one of Hollywood's most unique leading ladies. Adding luster to her seemingly perfect existence was her marriage to "X-Files" star, David Duchovny, as the two made for one of Hollywood's most lovable and happy couples. She went on to star opposite Jim Carrey in the remake of "Fun with Dick and Jane" (2005) and more than held her own opposite Ben Kingsley in the crime comedy "You Kill Me" (2007). But when all was going her way, Leoni was embroiled in a highly public split with Duchovny following his treatment for sex addiction in 2008. They would reconcile shortly after, only to split again in 2011, around the time she was seen opposite Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in "Tower Heist" (2011). Despite her personal setbacks, Leoni remained a potent comedic force in films and on television.
