Model-actress Ali Landry became an overnight sensation in one of the most memorable Super Bowl commercials ever. Already crowned Miss Louisiana Teen USA 1990 and Miss USA 1996, the Louisiana beauty turned to acting in 1997. The following year Landry broke out nationwide with a star-making appearance as the über-athletic "Doritos Girl" in a television commercial aired during Super Bowl XXXII and soon picked up recurring roles on such series as "Pensacola: Wings of Gold" (syndicated, 1997-2000) and "Felicity" (WB, 1998-2002). Two years later, Landry made her feature film debut alongside Minnie Driver in the beauty pageant comedy "Beautiful (2000). While low-budget fare like "Repli-Kate" (2002) traded in on her stellar looks, Landry showed promise as a comedic actor with a regular cast role on the sitcom "Eve" (UPN, 2003-06). A six-year courtship with TV personality Mario Lopez culminated in a two week marriage, quickly annulled amidst rumors of Lopez's recent romantic indiscretions, only to have Landry's personal life rebound when she married Mexican director Alejandro Gomez Monteverde in 2006. Under the direction of her new husband, Landry earned high marks for her performance in Monteverde's well-regarded indie drama "Bella" (2007). Later work included a notable guest turn in 2008 on the police procedural "Criminal Minds" (CBS, 2005- ) and a supporting role in the inspirational drama film "Me Again" (2012). Determined to be regarded as more than just a pretty face, Landry continually pursued her professional aspirations while remaining true to her personal beliefs.
