Name: Angie Everhart                                                                 
Born: 7 September 1969 Akron, Ohio                                                   
Angela Kay Everhart (born September 7, 1969) is an American actress and former       
fashion model.                                                                       
Everhart was born in Akron, Ohio, the daughter of Ginnie, a homemaker, and           
Robert Everhart, an engineer. The fifth child of six siblings, having four           
older brothers and a younger sister, she began modeling when she was 15. In 1987,     
she graduated from Firestone High School in Akron where she was a cheerleader         
and school mascot.                                                                   
Following a playful photo session with her mother and the submission of the           
results to a local modeling agency, Everhart was on a plane to Paris later that       
year. By the end of the following year, she had graced the covers of such             
fashion mainstays as ELLE and Glamour magazine (for which she was the first-ever     
red-haired cover girl). Though a riding accident in which she broke her back at       
the age of 19 nearly put an end to her aspirations, Everhart eventually               
recovered through physical therapy. Early in her career, Everhart was advised         
she would never be a top model because she was a redhead. However, she succeeded     
in her chosen career and posed for numerous publications. She appeared in             
several issues of the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, starting in         
1995. After years of publicly insisting she would never pose nude, Everhart did       
just that for the February 2000 issue of Playboy. She was ranked #98 on the FHM       
100 Sexiest Women of 2003.                                                           
Everhart made her film debut in 1993 with the Arnold Schwarzenegger action-comedy     
Last Action Hero. She has since appeared in such features as Tales From the           
Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood (1996), Denial (1998), Trigger Happy (1996)         
and Gunblast Vodka (2000).                                                           
Other movies she has appeared in include Jade (1995), and Executive Target (1997),   
Since then, her feature film roles have been restricted to low budget erotic         
thrillers such as Another 9 1/2 Weeks (1997) and Bare Witness (2001). She also       
appeared in the 2004 television series Celebrity Mole: Yucatan, in which she was     
the rogue agent sabotaging the group. She was one of the "Gingers" on the second     
season of The Real Gilligan's Island (the other was Erika Eleniak), but left the     
show when she accidentally cut her finger severely enough to sever tendons and       
require surgery. Angie was also a panelist on "To Tell The Truth" from 2000 to
