Denise Richards Biography
Denise Lee Richards was born February 17, 1971 and is known an an American actress and former fashion model. She came to fame in the late 1990s, after a string of films that highlighted her sex appeal, including Wild Things and The World Is Not Enough. Richards is also known for her marriage to (and divorce from) actor Charlie Sheen.
Richards was born in Downers Grove, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, to Irving Richards, who used to work for a phone company, and Joni, who owns a chain of coffeehouses named "Jitters". Richards is of Welsh descent on her father's side and of Croatian descent on her mother's, and Denise was raised as a Catholic. Denise Richards moved to California with her family when she was 14 and graduated from El Camino High School in Oceanside, California, where she practiced cheerleading as a sport.
Richards spent the majority of the 1990s appearing in lower-budget films, television movies, and guest starring in episodes of several television shows. Her first starring role in a wide theatrical release was Starship Troopers in 1997, which was followed by her role in the moderately successful cult film Wild Things in 1998. Richards was subsequently cast as Dr. Christmas Jones in the James Bond film The World Is Not Enough (1999), which had a high box office gross and contributed to Richards' renown. In addition to her film work, Richards has made regular appearances in the situation comedies Spin City, Two and a Half Men, Friends and Seinfeld. Denise also starred in the short-lived UPN series Sex, Love & Secrets in 2005.
Throughout the early 2000s, Denise Richards appeared in several film roles which both parodied and utilized her image as a sex symbol, including Valentine, Undercover Brother and Scary Movie 3. In December of 2004, she posed in a nude pictorial for Playboy magazine. Denise has often said that she enjoyed the experience, but that posing naked in Playboy was one of the hardest things she has ever had to do.
Richards has dated actor Patrick Muldoon. In 2002, she married actor Charlie Sheen, with whom she appeared in Scary Movie 3, where she played his character's dying wife. The couple have two daughters: Sam J, who was born on March 9, 2004, and Lola Rose, who was born on June 1, 2005. Richards was named the Sexiest Mom of 2005 by In Touch magazine.
In March of 2005, Richards filed for divorce from Sheen. The couple briefly reconciled and were seeking marriage counseling to mend their relationship. However, on January 4, 2006, Richards' representative announced that she was continuing with the divorce, and she has recently sought a restraining order against Sheen, citing his use of death threats against her. She has since been linked to actor John Stamos, whom she dated during her teenage years.
Richards reportedly enjoys kickboxing and has several dogs. She is a member of MENSA.
On April 25, 2006, it was reported that Richards is romantically involved with Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora who recently separated from Heather Locklear.
On April 19, 2006, Richards filed for divorce from Sheen under the laws of the state of California. In her 17-page court filing (not counting additional supporting evidentiary documents), Richards alleged that Sheen's behavior was increasingly erratic, making their marriage impossible, and that she feared for her safety and the safety of their two daughters: Sam J. and Lola Rose. Richards claimed that Sheen was physically and verbally abusive and threatened to kill her or have her killed, and that despite having accidentally shot his previous fiancée, Kelly Preston, he wanted to place firearms under their coffee table to protect them. Richards claimed that Sheen had become paranoid and obsessive, citing his belief in 9/11 conspiracy theories, a belief that baby formula caused brain damage, a desire to purchase gas masks, and an "abnormal fascination" with Nicole Simpson's death. Further, Richards alleged that Sheen visited prostitutes and was addicted to gambling, prescription drugs (which he bought over the Internet), and pornography. Richards also alleged that Sheen posted a picture of his erect penis on his online profile of a "sex-search type" website and that he frequently viewed pornography featuring "very young girls," and websites "involving gay pornography also involving very young men who also did not look like adults." Based on these allegations, Richards sought and received a restraining order against Sheen.
Charlie Sheen denied the allegations. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight co-anchor Mark Steines, he described Richards' actions as a "smear campaign" and insisted that he was a responsible father who would "give his life for his children." He added that Richards is "the only one entirely culpable for putting these radical allegations out for public consumption... my children included."
