She's not only a dazzling beauty who's caught everyone's attention (including rapper 50 Cent back in 2003), but she's a multi-talented actress and businesswoman.
We first saw Fox in her break-out role as Jasmine Dubrow in the box office hit Independence Day in 1996 and again later that year in Set Off alongside Queen Latifah. Since then, she's taken on roles in Soul Food, Kill Bill, Three Can Play that Game and Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva.
In 2007, Fox sashayed back onto our television screens when she competed on Dancing with the Stars, proving she's fearless on the dance floor as well.
Fox is also a notable entrepreneur. Early this year, she launched her own hair collection, taking her brand to new heights.
Join us in wishing her a happy birthday and continued success. Keep doing your thing, Ms. Fox!
