Who is this Celebrity? Trivia Questions

1. Clue #1: Her name was chosen through a contest at MGM. Clue #2: She co-starred in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?". Clue #3: Accepted Anne Bancroft's Oscar. I have given you three clues. Can you guess who the actress is?

From Quiz
Three Clues and a Guess

Answer: Joan Crawford

Lucille Faye Lesueur was born on March 23, 1904 in San Antonio, Texas. Joan's mother remarried after her father abandoned the family and her stepfather abused her. She was nineteen when MGM began using her as a flapper in their silent pictures. The movie company started a contest to pick a new name for Lucille Fay Lesueur and her name was changed to Joan Crawford. Joan married four times and adopted five children through a black market ring out of Nevada. When Warner Bros. hired Joan, she had the idea to turn the book "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" into a movie starring herself and Bette Davis. When the Oscar nominations were released, Bette Davis was the only actress nominated for the movie so Joan called every actress and asked to accept the award in their stead if they won. Anne Bancroft won for "The Miracle Worker" and Joan went onstage to accept the award for Anne. Joan died in 1977 while living in Manhattan.

2. Born in New Jersey in 1921, this baritone counted Doris Day and Shirley Jones amongst his leading ladies. Who was this, who was known to sing about a beautiful morning?

From Quiz Celebrity Acrostic

Answer: Gordon MacRae

Gordon MacRae (1921-1986) was born in East Orange, New Jersey and made his movie debut in the 1948 boxing movie "The Big Punch". He went on to star in a number of films with Doris Day, including "On Moonlight Bay" and "By the Light of the Silvery Moon" (1951, 1953). It was in one of the films he made with Shirley Jones, "Oklahoma!" (1955), that he sang "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'". MacRae and Jones also co-starred in "Carousel" (1956). He was twice married and had five children, two of whom (Meredith and Heather) also went into acting. Of the incorrect choices, none were born in 1921, and only Sinatra was born in New Jersey.

3. Which actor, who starred in "The Quick and the Dead" (1995), also starred in "Titanic" (1997)?

From Quiz Which Actor Is It?

Answer: Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio was born on November 11, 1974, in Los Angeles, California. He was named after Leonardo Da Vinci. He attended Seeds Elementary School at UCLA. He started acting in 1989, and starred in his first movie, "Critters 3", in 1991. He also starred in other movies, including "The Wolf of Wall Street", "Catch Me If You Can", and "Romeo + Juliet". He is also a member of the board of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

4. Embroiled in scandal, what former figure skater, boxer, and land-speed record-holder was portrayed in a film by Margot Robbie?

From Quiz Celebrities on First Name Basis - S & T

Answer: Tonya

Tonya Harding rose through the ranks in the amateur figure skating world throughout the 1980s and 1990s though the career was cut short when her ex-husband attacked one of her competitors. Since the 1990s, Harding has instead found renewed fame in other ventures, notably celebrity boxing, reality television, and breaking the land-speed record for a vintage gas coupe on the Bonneville Salt Flats. She also appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" in 2018. Her life would be seen under the microscope once again in the 2018 film "I, Tonya" where Margot Robbie played the title role; Robbie was nominated for an Oscar for the portrayal.

5. Who is the American actress who starred as shark expert Kate in the 2012 action thriller "Dark Tide"? She has also won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in "Monster's Ball" (2001) and played the part of Storm in "X-Men" (2000).

From Quiz This Dark and Starry Night

Answer: Halle Berry

Halle Berry grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. She has entered several beauty contests, including Miss World. She won Miss Teen All American and Miss Ohio USA. Halle has been a head cheerleader and a model. She earned a degree in broadcast journalism. Halle started her acting experience in the television series "Living Dolls" in 1989. She later played the part of Sharon Stone in the comedy film "The Flintstones" (1994). She won several awards for playing the title role in the television movie "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge" (1999). Into the next decade, Halle starred as the female superhero Storm in "X-Men" (2000) and in three of its sequels. For her part in the romantic drama "Monster's Ball" (2001), she became the first woman of color to win the Academy Award for Best Actress. Halle is of mixed race descent. There is so much more. What about "Catwoman" (2004), "Frankie and Alice" (2010) and "Kings" (2017)? She has worked with three other people as Executive Producer on the comedy series "Boomerang" in 2019.

6. Which beautiful "Moonstruck" star was married to Sonny Bono?

From Quiz Guess

Answer: Cher

Every time I think of Sonny and Cher I start singing, "The Beat Goes On". I used to watch their variety show and laugh at the 'nose' jokes and the 'short' jokes. They seemed like the perfect couple... but as in show business, you never really know. Sonny and Cher had only one child, Chastity Bono. I won't touch that story here. Sonny and Cher divorced in the 70s and Sonny went into politics while Cher still performs and acts. I was lucky enough to see Cher in concert at the Mirage in Las Vegas in the 1990's. That woman has class and can flaunt it so gracefully!

7. When she smiles she brightens the room and makes a misnomer of her role as a "Dark Angel". Who is this smiling beauty from Pomona in California?

From Quiz That Certain Smile

Answer: Jessica Alba

Jessica's major breakthrough came when she was chosen to play the role of a genetically engineered super-soldier in James Cameron's television series "Dark Angel" (2000/01) and she has not looked back since. Next was a role as the exotic dancer Nancy Callahan in "Sin City" and Sue Storm (someone with a smile like that should not be playing an invisible woman) in "The Fantastic Four", both from 2005. She would reprise both roles in subsequent sequels. Beyond the silver screen she has helped launch The Honest Company, a retailer of household goods, diapers, and body care products, written a book and stood behind a range of charities and causes, enough to put a smile on anybody's face.

8. The woman who played Princess Aouda in the 1956 film 'Around the World in 80 Days' while in her early 20s, appeared in the 2017 film 'The Lost Word' while in her early 80s. Who is this actress who also happens to be Warren Beatty's sister?

From Quiz Wonderful Worldly Women

Answer: Shirley MacLaine

Shirley MacLean Beaty was born in 1934, three years before her brother, Warren Beaty. Both siblings changed their names slightly on entering the entertainment industry - Shirley adapted her middle name (and mother's maiden name) to become Shirley MacLaine, while Warren added an extra 't' to their surname to become Warren Beatty. MacLaine's Hollywood career began in 1955 with 'The Trouble with Harry' and earned her a Golden Globe for 'New Star of the Year'. A few years later she obtained her first Academy Award nomination for 1958's 'Some Came Running'. It took a further five nominations before she finally won the Best Actress Oscar for 'Terms of Endearment' in 1983. In addition to her film career that spanned more than seven decades, she also had some notable roles on TV - these included 'Shirley's World' in the early 1970s and a guest role in the hit series 'Downton Abbey' in the 2010s. Martine Carol, Marlene Dietrich and Beatrice Lillie were all older actresses who had cameo roles in 'Around the World in 80 Days'.

9. Which director is known for "The Pillow Book" and "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover"?

From Quiz Peter Without Paul and Mary

Answer: Peter Greenaway

Greenaway was born in Wales in 1942. After studying to be a painter, he switched to movies, stating, as his influences, Ingmar Bergman and Alain Resnais. Between 1962 and 1979 he directed several short movies and short documentaries. Greenaway's first full feature-length movie was "The Falls" (1980), followed by "The Draughtman's Contract" (1982). His best known movie is "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover" (1989), starring (in the same order) Richard Bohringer, Michael Gambon, Helen Mirren and Alan Howard. The plot may be a bit confusing, but basically the Thief (a gangster who runs a restaurant) has his wife's lover killed, but she takes revenge. In "The Pillow Book" (1996) Greenaway has his characters painting books on each other's nude bodies in Japanese calligraphy. The main roles are for Vivian Wu and Ewan McGregor. Peter Jackson (born 1961) is a New Zealand director, writer and producer. After some horror comedies such as "Bad Taste" (1987) and "Braindead" (1992), he gained international acclaim with the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy (2001-2003) and "King Kong" (2005). Peter Andrews is one of the aliases Steven Soderbergh (born 1963) frequently used for his movies. On several occasions (for instance "Traffic" from 2000 and "Ocean's Eleven" from 2001) he used the alias Peter Andrews as cinematographer, and in some occasions he used the alias Mary Ann Bernard for the editing. Peter Segal (born 1962) is a comedy director, with movies such as "Get Smart" (2008), "50 First Dates" (2004) and "The Naked Gun 33 1/3: the Final Insult" (1994).

10. Starring in "Manhunter" and "To Live and Die in L.A." in the 80s and "Fear" in the 90s, I went on to star in a very popular crime series in the 2000s. Who am I?

From Quiz CSI Whodunits

Answer: William Petersen

William Petersen is of course best known for producing and starring as Gil Grissom in "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" for nine seasons. In 2015 he took the role of Colonel Emmett Darrow in the TV series "Manhattan".

11. Dancing down the catwalk in top hat and tails is none other, of course, than the incomparable Fred Astaire; with whom did he star in the 1935 movie, 'Top Hat'?

From Quiz Top Hats and Spats

Answer: Ginger Rogers

Ginger Rogers, born Virginia Katherine McMath, was a well-known partner of Fred Astaire, having partnered him in ten movies. Astaire had numerous dance partners, including Rita Hayworth and Eleanor Powell, and was known as a great innovator of dance routines.

12. Mary Lee and Thomas made the "Mission: Impossible" possible and delivered what star on July 3, 1962?

From Quiz A Star is Born

Answer: Tom Cruise

Tom's legendary movie career began all the way back in 1981. He has been the star of numerous smash hits such as "Top Gun", "A Few Good Men" and "Jerry Maguire".

13. This golden goose wowed the crowds and then flew the coop in season 4 of TV's "21 Jump Street". Name the "highest paid actor" who cut a fine figure as the award-winning Mad Hatter?

From Quiz And Then You Go and Spoil It All

Answer: Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp (1963) was 23 when he bewitched viewers in the role of Officer Tom Hanson on the new American FOX network's "21 Jump Street". He stayed for four of five seasons (1987 to 1990), playing an undercover police officer investigating crime in teen arenas. Depp wanted to act with Frederic Forrest, Jr. (Captain Richard Jenko), but Forrest was replaced in season two. Finding his teen idol status "irritating", Depp wanted a serious film role, so he was released from his contract. Depp then starred in the movie "Edward Scissorhands" (1990) a breakthrough role and Golden Globe nomination which set the stage for a new status--one of the world's most famous and well-paid movie stars. "21 Jump Street"? It ran repeats.

14. A running gag of Paul Rudd's is to bring a clip of the film 'Mac and Me' (1988) to play instead of a clip from the film he is promoting. Which television host has he done this to?

From Quiz A-Z of My Favourite Celebrities Part Two

Answer: Conan O'Brien

Paul Rudd was born on April 6, 1969. He first came to prominence in the 1995 film 'Clueless' where he played the former step brother and love interest of Alicia Silverstone. He has also become well known for his roles in Judd Apatow films, including 'The 40 Year Old Virgin' (2005), 'Knocked Up' (2007) and 'This Is 40' (2012).

15. In 1975, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" became only the second film to sweep the Oscars in all five major categories. Which future Best Actor Oscar-winner collected the Best Picture Oscar as one of the film's two co-producers?

From Quiz Which Actor/Actress 2

Answer: Michael Douglas

"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" matched the achievement of "It Happened One Night" in 1934 by winning all five major Oscars. Best Director went to Milos Forman and Best Adapted Screenplay to Laurence Hauben and Bo Goldman. The major acting awards were won by Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher. The Oscar for Best Picture was claimed by the film's two co-producers, Michael Douglas and Saul Zaentz. Douglas would go on to win the Best Actor award for "Wall Street" in 1987. "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" was the first of many films produced by Douglas. His later successful movies include "The China Syndrome", "Romancing the Stone", "Starman", "The Jewel of the Nile", "Flatliners", "Double Impact" and "Face/Off".

16. This American actor was largely known for his leading roles in Western movies, his gravelly voice, and his distinctive diction. One of his nicknames was The Duke. Can you name him?

From Quiz Never Trust a Man With Two First Names

Answer: John Wayne

John Wayne was born Marion Morrison. He was seen so often as a boy with his pet airedale, Duke, that he picked up the same nickname. He changed his name to John Wayne when he started acting.

17. This actor was quite the traveler. Who starred in the following movies: "That Night in Rio"; "Moon Over Miami" and "Down Argentine Way"?

From Quiz "Wing and a Prayer" Actors

Answer: Don Ameche

Don Ameche was normally cast as the suave lover in romantic comedies. He made a comeback in 1985 starring in "Cocoon". He played Flight Commander Bingo Harper in "Wing and a Prayer".

18. Adam Levine is the lead singer of which band?

From Quiz A-Z of My Favourite Celebrities Part One

Answer: Maroon 5

Adam Levine was born on 18th March 1979. He co-founded the band Kara's Flowers in 1994, after James Valentine joined in 2002. The band was later renamed Maroon 5. Interestingly, even though the band's first two albums, 'Songs About Jane' (2002) and 'It Won't Be Soon Before Long' (2007), both reached number one in the UK album charts, their first UK number one single wasn't achieved until they released 'Payphone' from their fourth album 'Overexposed' in 2012.

19. A Russian opera singer listens to the name Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Try saying that three times, and then try to untangle your tongue. What is his singing voice?

From Quiz Try Saying That Three Times Fast

Answer: Baritone

Dmitri Aleksandrovich Hvorostovsky was born in Krasnoyarsk in 1962. I certainly hope not to encounter the previous phrase in a spelling contest. He studied at the local art academy and debuted his career in a supporting role in Verdi's opera "Rigoletto". His first role in Italy was the title role in "Eugene Onegin" by Tchaikovsky. Other notable performances of his are the role of father Germont in "La Traviata" and of Count di Luna in "Il Trovatore", two of the most appreciated operas by Giuseppe Verdi. Dmitri sings the baritone voice, what some music theorists consider the most frequent male voice. Unfortunately most romantic operas need a tenor to sing the hero role, so baritones have usually to be content with secondary roles.

20. This comedian famously stepped into Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show" chair, then loaned it briefly to Conan O'Brien before taking it back. Which funny celebrity is endowed with a bit much chin?

From Quiz That's a Bit Much...

Answer: Jay Leno

James Douglas Muir "Jay" Leno (1950) is a comedian, television host, actor, writer, voice actor, and producer, who reputedly doesn't smoke, drink or gamble. He took over Johnny Carson's spot on "The Tonight Show" in 1992, upsetting comedian David Letterman. Leno topped the ratings for nearly two decades before a controversy over a contract with Conan O'Brien in 2009. Leno has voiced the comic book superhero The Crimson Chin and wrote "Leading with My Chin". Leno's chin even has its own Facebook page. Jimmy Fallon, slated to take the show in 2014, donned a fake chin. The prominence is due to a condition called mandibular prognathism, or Habsburg jaw. Though Leno declined the wired-shut jaw that surgery requires, probably to his advantage, in 2012 plastic surgeons reported record requests for a "chinplant".

21. This actress and comedienne is best known for her work on "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock". But, she doesn't just make TV audiences laugh; she writes, too. Her book "Bossypants" has topped "The New York Times" Best Seller List. Who is she?

From Quiz They Write Too

Answer: Tina Fey

Elizabeth Stamatina "Tina" Fey was born on May 18, 1970 in Upper Darby Township, Pennsylvania. She began writing for "Saturday Night Live" in 1997 and a year later, was acting on the show, too. In 2006, she left "SNL" as a cast member and joined the show "30 Rock" as Liz Lemon, where she also writes scripts. Throughout her acting career, she has also been in many movies, such as "Baby Mama" (2008) and "Date Night" (2010). She also had a part in the movie "Mean Girls" (2004), which she wrote the adapted screenplay for. But, of course, she isn't just a script writer, but a book author, too.

From Quiz When I Least Expected It...

Answer: Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton arrived in Nashville in 1993 at the age of 17. He was not signed by a record company until 1998, and did not release "Austin" until 2001. The song went on to dominate the Country chart for five weeks and Blake became an 'overnight' sensation eight years in the making. Since then he has released numerous Gold albums and several Platinum and Gold songs. Blake has also been a judge on the singing competitions "Nashville Star" and most notably "The Voice". Blake married Country star Miranda Lambert whom he met on the CMT TV show "100 Greatest Duets Concert". Interestingly, Miranda had finished third on "Nashville Star" a few years before Blake was a judge. Together the two wrote Miranda's Number One "Over You". Blake released a cover of Dave Barnes' song "God Gave Me You" because it was the song that convinced him to propose to Miranda. The song became a Number One hit on the Country Chart.

From Quiz I Believe

Answer: John Travolta

In 1985 Prince Charles and Princess Diana were visiting the USA. President Reagan hosted a White House gala dinner for them, and the memorable image from that dinner was Diana, in an off the shoulder midnight blue gown, dancing with John Travolta. John Travolta is famous for films such as "Saturday Night Fever" (1977), "Grease" (1978) and "Pulp Fiction" (1994). His acting career took something of a downturn in the 1980s and he turned to directing. During that lean period he was offered, but turned down, the lead roles in both "American Gigolo" (1980) and "An Officer and a Gentleman" (1982). English ballet dancer Wayne Sleep danced with Princess Diana on the stage of the Royal Opera House.

25. Which well known actor, who won an Oscar for his role in the 1953 movie "Stalag 17", was best man at Ronald and Nancy Reagan's wedding in 1952?

From Quiz Facts on Famous Performers No 2

Answer: William Holden

William Holden was born in 1918. He was spotted by a talent scout for Paramount Studios in 1937 and began taking small parts in movies from that time. When the Second World War drew the US into the international conflict, Holden enlisted in the Army's Air Force, rising to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. In 1950 he hit the big time with his portrayal of Joe Gillis opposite Gloria Swanson in the movie "Sunset Boulevard". He was nominated for an Academy Award for his work in that film, but it would be his role in "Stalag 17" (1953) that saw him take the award home. Because the award ceremony was running late, Holden had no time to say anything but "Thank you" when he accepted the Oscar. So annoyed was he by this that he took out advertisements in various Hollywood magazines to thank those he couldn't on the night. Sadly this fine character actor of 71 films began to drink heavily towards the close of his career. It was this that killed him. Whilst alone and intoxicated one night in 1981, he slipped on a rug and violently hit his head on the corner of a bedside cabinet. The cut was so deep that he bled to death. Today he is remembered not only for his many films, but also for the William Holden Wildlife Foundation. Holden had supported wildlife conservation for many years. Following his death, his long time girlfriend, the actress Stefanie Powers, established this foundation as a memorial. It is based at a ranch that Holden owned in Kenya, Africa.
