Early lifeEdit

Denise Richards was born in Downers Grove, Illinois, to Joni, a coffee shop owner, and Irv Richards, a telephone engineer,[7] whose father's surname was Reichert. Her Croatian[8] mother died of cancer in November 2007.[9] Her ancestry is German, French-Canadian, Croatian,[10] Irish, English, Welsh, and distant Dutch.[11] She has a younger sister, Michelle.[12] Richards grew up in both Downers Grove and Mokena, Illinois. As a child, she was the "only girl on the baseball team".[13]

When Richards was 15 years old, her family moved to Oceanside, California. In 1989, she graduated from El Camino High School.[12] She was voted best looking in her high school yearbook.[14] Richards was raised Roman Catholic.[15] After her high school graduation, she began working as a model and traveled to cities such as Paris, New York, and Tokyo to do photo shoots and commercials.[12]


1990–2008: Career beginnings and breakthroughEdit

In the 1990s, Richards appeared in several films and television shows such as Loaded Weapon 1 (1993), Tammy and the T-Rex (1994), Lookin' Italian (1994), and guest starring in episodes of Saved by the Bell, Married... with Children and Doogie Howser, M.D. In 1993, she portrayed Ben Affleck's character's girlfriend named Jodi Collins, in the short-lived drama series Against the Grain. Richards made guest appearances in several television shows, including Beverly Hills, 90210 (1992), Seinfeld (1993), Lois and Clark (1994) and a guest-arc in Melrose Place (1996).

Richards at the premiere of The World Is Not Enough (1999)

Her first starring role in a wide theatrical release was Starship Troopers in 1997 for which Richards was nominated for the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Female Newcomer. The film grossed a total of $121.2 million worldwide. In 2012, Slant Magazine ranked the film at number 20 on its list of the 100 Best Films of the 1990s.[16] She followed this with a role in the erotic thriller film Wild Things (1998) alongside Kevin Bacon, Matt Dillon and Neve Campbell.[17][18] Variety praised Richards' transition from good-girl-type roles to manipulative villainess and the review continued to include her as part of "an ensemble that appears to be enjoying the challenge of offbeat roles and unusual material. There's not a wrong note struck by the game group of players."[19] In 2016, Glamour praised the film's female characters by describing Richards and Neve Campbell as "two of the most well-rounded, fascinating, and exciting characters to ever grace the screen."[20]

Richards was cast as the nuclear physicist Christmas Jones in the James Bond film The World Is Not Enough (1999). Though she considered her role "brainy", "athletic", and having depth of character,[21] she was criticized as not credible in the role.[22][23] Her outfit, which often comprised a low-cut tank top and tight shorts, elicited unfavorable comments.[24] Richards stated that a lot of viewers "made fun of" the character's attire but that "These Bond girls are so outrageous and if I did really look like a scientist, the Bond fans would have been disappointed."[25] Richards was nominated for the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favourite Actress – Action, for the film. Later that year, Richards starred alongside Kirsten Dunst in the beauty pageant satire, Drop Dead Gorgeous. The film has gained new fans with time and is regarded as a cult film. Richards, playing a spoiled princess, was praised for her performance by Los Angeles Times for being "as rightly nasty as she is pretty".[26]

In 2001, she guest-starred in Friends as Ross and Monica Geller's cousin, Cassie Geller in the episode "The One with Ross and Monica's Cousin".[27][28] Later that year she appeared in four episodes of Spin City as Jennifer Duncan, a love interest of Charlie Sheen's character. She starred as Sheen's character's ex-girlfriend two years later in two episodes of Two and a Half Men. Richards appeared in numerous films such as Valentine (2001), Good Advice (2001), Undercover Brother (2002), The Third Wheel (2002) and You Stupid Man (2002). She played Annie Logan in the horror comedy film Scary Movie 3 (2003), which was a commercial success and grossed $220 million worldwide.[29][30] The film's plot significantly parodies the films The Ring, Signs, The Matrix Reloaded and 8 Mile. Richards made a brief appearance in the British romantic comedy Love Actually (2003).[31] In 2004, she appeared in two films, Whore and Elvis Has Left the Building.

In 2005, Richards had a lead role as publicist Jolene in the short-lived UPN soap opera Sex, Love & Secrets.[32] The series focused on rich young adults living in Silver Lake, Los Angeles and their secrets involving sex and love.[33] The series was developed as a vehicle and television debut for Richards. She starred in the ensemble drama film Edmond (2005) alongside William H. Macy and Mena Suvari. In 2008, she reunited with her Wild Things on-screen mother Theresa Russell in the drama film Jolene (2008). Her reality show Denise Richards: It's Complicated debuted on E! on May 26, 2008. The series followed the daily lives of Richards, her daughters Sam and Lola, and her married younger sister Michelle and father Irv.[34] Entertainment Weekly published a review and wrote that "It’s Complicated is one of those ”celebs, they’re just like us!” shows in which we’re expected to enjoy watching a famous pampered person doing things we don't want to do either."[35] The series concluded after two seasons on July 26, 2009.[36]

2009–present: memoir and television rolesEdit

Richards appeared on the 8th season of dance competition television series Dancing with the Stars, paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.[37] She was the second contestant eliminated on March 24, 2009.[38] She landed the role of Autumn Bliss in the romantic comedy film Deep in the Valley (2009) alongside Kim Kardashian and Chris Pratt. In 2010, she joined Paramount Network's sitcom Blue Mountain State as Debra Simon.[39] The series is about a fictional university, Blue Mountain State, and its football team, the "Mountain Goats". It portrays certain aspects of American university life, including American football, sex, drinking, and partying. In February 2012, it was reported that Blue Mountain State would not be renewed for a fourth season.[40] Over the years, due in large part to being streamable on Netflix, the series has developed a cult following. In July 2011, Richards published a memoir The Real Girl Next Door, a New York Times Best Seller.[41][42] Richards decided to write a book because she "wanted to do something inspirational for other people going through challenging times," she told HuffPost in 2011.[43] In September 2011, Richards reportedly turned down $100,000 to appear as an ex-girlfriend at Charlie Sheen's funeral in Two and a Half Men.[44] A month later, she began filming a guest spot for an episode for the sixth season of NBC comedy series 30 Rock.[45] Richards was part of TV Guide Network's show, Hollywood Moms' Club, which aired in November 2011.[46][47]

Richards played Kate Needleman in the comedy film Madea's Witness Protection (2012), which grossed $67 million at the box office.[48] Madea's Witness Protection was filmed in Atlanta in early 2012 and was released through 34th Street Films and Lionsgate. In 2012, Richards joined the cast of ABC Family's mystery-thriller television series Twisted.[49] In 2015, she appeared in two films, Operation: Neighborhood Watch! and Christmas Trade. In 2016, she made a guest appearance as herself in The CW's Jane the Virgin, in the episode "Chapter Fifty-One." She portrayed Kat Faust in the musical thriller film American Satan (2017), for which Richards was nominated for the Festival Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Feature Film at the Northeast Film Festival.[50] Later that year, Richards portrayed Temple Hampton in an episode of Bravo's comedy-drama series Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce. She starred in the supernatural horror film The Toybox (2018) opposite Mischa Barton.[51] The film is about a family who go on a summer road trip in a used RV and get stranded in the desert by a supernatural force that is slowly killing them off.[51][52] She portrayed Karen in the faith-based film The Prayer Box (2018), released on October 20, 2018.[53]

Richards in 2019

In August 2018, Richards announced that she would be joining the Bravo reality series, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, for the show's ninth season, which premiered on February 12, 2019.[54][55] Vanity Fair described her addition to the series by saying: "She might be one of the most famous people to join the Housewives franchise, someone who was a legitimate household name before becoming a reality star. Now, that doesn’t always translate to on-screen gold, but it is a nice little coup for Bravo."[56] The New York Times wrote that Richards "brought a refreshing and occasionally disarming dose of reality" to the series.[57] On May 31, 2019, The Daily Beast wrote that "Richards’ appearance on the show is the best kind of surprise, one that reveals that a celebrity is not who we may have assumed them to be. She’s an extremely warm, loving parent, without a hint of narcissism or vapidity about her."[58] In 2019, she joined the cast of CBS’ soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful as Shauna Fulton.[6][59][60][61] “Shauna is a fun-loving, hard-working single mother from Las Vegas who aspires to live life to its absolute fullest,” executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell told People magazine.[62] In July 2019, it was announced that Richards had joined the cast of Fox's comedy-drama television series BH90210 in a guest role, playing a fictionalized version of herself.[63][64][65]

She portrayed overly-ambitious mother Candice in Lifetime television film The Secret Lives of Cheerleaders, released on September 2, 2019.[66][67] "I think the story’s about this girl that’s trying to fit in and makes some bad choices and then, knowing right from wrong, decided to make a better choice," Richards told Parade.[68] On November 4, 2019, Richards appeared as a guest model on the game show The Price Is Right.[69][70] Richards played Valerie in the Christmas film My Adventures with Santa (2019) opposite Patrick Muldoon.[71] The film was released in limited theaters on November 15, 2019.[72] Richards returned for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' tenth season, which premiered on April 15, 2020.[73] Fox News called her "an instant fan favorite" when she joined the show in 2019.[74]

She promoted Best Friends Animal Society's Save Them All campaign in 2014.[119] "I’ve been involved with Best Friends Animal Society since 2009 and I’ve seen firsthand the differences they’ve made and the countless lives they’ve saved," Richards said.[119] She has regularly appeared on Access Hollywood's monthly pet segment showcasing shelter dogs rescued by Best Friends and available for adoption.[120][121] While assisting with relief efforts in New York following Hurricane Sandy, she worked together with North Shore Animal League, and adopted a puppy from a Long Island shelter.[122][123]
