Biography

A true child of Hollywood, Christina Applegate first rose to fame as a teenager by playing the angel-faced yet promiscuous half-wit Kelly Bundy on Fox's gleefully trashy sitcom "Married. .. With Children" (1987-1997). She had been a working actress since she was an infant, but Applegate managed to escape the fate of so many child actors by steering clear of the seductive Hollywood lifestyle; instead carving out a respectable adult career with her own sitcom "Jesse" (1998-2000) and a recurring role as real-life buddy Jennifer Aniston's sister on "Friends" (NBC, 1994-2004), which earned her an Emmy Award. Applegate also enjoyed a few big screen successes with comedies "The Sweetest Thing" (2002) and "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" (2004). She also surprisingly took Broadway by storm with a Tony-nominated role in Bob Fosse's "Sweet Charity" and earned the love and respect of fans during her successful 2008 fight against breast cancer. That same year, Applegate earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for her runaway fall hit "Samantha Who?" (ABC, 2007-09) in which she starred as an amnesia patient trying to rebuild a new life with hilarious and often poignant results. After a high-profile battle with breast cancer in 2008, her series was canceled the following year. She returned with a sitcom costarring Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph, "Up All Night" (NBC, 2011-12).

Bonus Trivia

.

On Aug. 3, 2008, Applegate's publicist reported that the actress was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. On Aug. 18, 2008, Applegate spoke with ABC News' "Good Morning America" to say that she had a double mastectomy three weeks earlier and will undergo reconstructive surgery over the next eight months.

.

On Aug. 18, 2008, Applegate spoke about her battle with breast cancer on ABC News' "Good Morning America." She said:"Sometimes, you know, I cry and sometimes I scream and I get really angry and I get really like, you know, into wallowing in self-pity sometimes. And I think that's – it's all part of healing, and anyone who's going through it out there, it's OK to cry. It's OK to fall on the ground and just scream if you want to.""I've laughed so much in the last three weeks," she said. "I love living, and I really love my life, and I knew that from this moment on it was only going to be good that was going to be coming. Yeah, I'll face challenges, but you can't get any darker than where I've been. So knowing that in my soul gave me the strength to just say, `I have to get out there and make this a positive.'"

.

After creator Emily Spivey was removed as showrunner from "Up All Night" during its second season, the show was briefly announced to be returning as a traditional three-camera sitcom. Applegate chose to leave the series instead, leading to its cancellation.
