1-MINUTE RESUME FOR MICHELLE MONAGHAN
Michelle Monaghan swears she was in both Constantine and Syriana. It's just that her scenes were deleted. But this shouldn't raise any eyebrows about her acting capabilities. She owned her character in 2005's Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, receiving a back-handed compliment from costar Val Kilmer. He, at first, told her she sucked at the read-through, but soothingly added that Monaghan was one of the extraordinary actresses he's ever worked with. And that same year, when Scarlett Johansson dropped out of Mission: Impossible III, Monaghan quickly earned the coveted role.
1. She refuses to go to a bar and spend $12 on a drink, preferring cheap beer from recyclable cans.
2. She once dated a guy who didn't like sports, but she converted him.The Iowa Hawkeyes are her favorite football team.
3. Early in her career, she exposed her underarm in a Secret deodorant commercial.
4. She auditioned for the part of Lois Lane in Superman Returns but the role went to Kate Bosworth.
5. She loves AC/DC.
"On my first day on Unfaithful, I was standing with Richard Gere and Diane Lane, and I started thinking of that game from Sesame Street, 'Which of these three things does not belong?'"
