Brad has been married twice: first to Jennifer Aniston, and then to Angelina Jolie, who, as a curious fact, convinced him to get a pilot’s license. "She's definitely more experienced," he told Rolling Stone magazine in 2008. "Yeah, she's badass."
Born in 1975 as Sia Kate Isobelle Furler in Adelaide, Australia, she’s a singer, songwriter and music video director with over twenty decades of experience in the music industry.
She has written songs for artists like Rihanna, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Ne-Yo, Kelly Clarkson, and Celine Dion, all while working on her career as a solo singer.
Although it took her a few years to connect with a mainstream audience, it was in 2014 that the single “Chandelier” put Sia on the map in the U.S charts. Although she enjoys the success, Sia wears a wig that reaches her face to protect her privacy.
Happy 39th birthday to Christina Aguilera, who has of the most powerful and recognizable voices in the music industry and is now passing down her wisdom to future singers as a judge and mentor on the singing competition series “The Voice.”

Born in 1978, Katie Holmes jumped to fame with the role of Joey Potter on the '90s series "Dawson’s Creek," which opened her the door to the big screen, where she took diverse roles in an effort to avoid being typecast.

Together, they share a daughter, Suri Cruise, but they split in 2012 with Holmes alleging she feared intimidation by the Church of Scientology, of which Cruise is a member.
