The Faculty: Jordana Brewster (Marie Claire), Josh Hartnett, Clea DuVall

Jordana Brewster in "The Faculty" (1998) directed by Robert Rodriguez

I always knew I wanted to be either on TV or in movies," the 33-year-old says from her home in Los Angeles. "I just didn't know how." At 10, she moved with her family from her mother's native Rio de Janeiro to Manhattan, and the track became clear.

"Everything's much more accessible in New York. I started taking classes to prove to myself that I could do it." By the time she was 15, she was a regular on As the World Turns.

From '90s teen thriller The Faculty to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (where she met her producer husband, Andrew Form), she's been working steadily ever since. Not that it's been a totally smooth ride. Source:

Josh Hartnett was tipped for great things at the beginning of his career as he appeared in teen movies such as "The Faculty" and "The Virgin Suicides" and there was even more excitement when he moved into more ‘grown up roles’.

He starred in the likes of "Pearl Harbor" and "Black Hawk Down" and his dashing good looks meant he was the next Hollywood leading man in waiting. But the dizzy heights have never really followed for the actor as he turned down the role of Superman - a role that would no doubt have sent his star rocketing even further.

The last couple of years we have seen very little of him on the big screen as he has done producing work as well as theatre projects - the movie that has done have struggled to catch people’s attention. But at thirty four Hartnett still has time on his side to get his career back to where it was as he has completed work on "Parts Per Billion" and "Singularity." Source:

A cameo by Chloë Sevigny/Piper Perabo/Clea DuVall (top 10 lesbian movie cliches): After "Boys Don't Cry," Chloë Sevigny pulled on a white T-shirt and leather jacket and straddled a motorbike in If These Walls Could Talk 2;

and in the underrated 90s teen alien film The Faculty, Clea DuVall even plays a character pretending to be a lesbian. Willingness to explore your fauxmosexuality shows true actorly dedication. Source:
