Vivica A. Fox calls herself a cougar... So boys, watch yourself out there.
Born in Indiana, Vivica went to college in California. On graduation, she was having lunch one day on Sunset Boulevard - a producer spotted her and said she should give acting a shot. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Soaps and sitcoms paid the bills at first until her breakthrough role in 1996 as Will Smith's girlfriend in 'Indepenence Day.' A year later came critical acclaim for the film 'Soul Food' and the role of femme fatale - 'Miss B Haven' - in 'Batman and Robin'.
By 2003, her career got another boost. Vivica starred in Quentin Tarantino's 'Kill Bill', and was Uma Thurman's first victim in one kick-ass knife fight.
Oh, and around that time, Vivica briefly dated 50 Cent. She's also appeared on 'Dancing with the Stars' and famously moved into Larry David's house on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' These days, she's still on 'Curb' as 'Loretta Black' and has a new comedy film shot here in Toronto called 'Shark City.
