Melina Kanakaredes is the daughter of Greek-American couple, Connie (nee Tamo) and Harry Kanakaredes. Her mother is one of the owners of a candy store in Akron, called “Temo’s Candy Company”, which is run by the other two owners, Melina’s maternal uncles. Her father was an insurance agent. The family has always been close-knit, and in touch with their Greek roots and culture, which is why she speaks fluent Greek. Melina dabbed her toes in acting at the age of eight, in a stage production of “Ton Sawyer” at their community theatre. Having fallen in love with the arts, she decided to pursue a degree in music, dance, and theatre at Point Park College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she performed in several roles at Pittsburgh Musical Theater, including the part of Mary Magdalene in the production of “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Melina also a beauty pageant contestant, a move she undertook in order to secure money for college. She was declared Miss Columbus, and then finished as the first runner-up for Miss Ohio. She graduated with honors in 1989.

Before her big break in film in “Bleeding Hearts” (1994), she went through several TV roles, most notable being that of Eleni Andros Cooper in “Guiding Light” (1992-1995), a soap opera for which she was nominated twice for a Daytime Emmy Award. The series is famous for being the longest running soap opera in American history, lasting from 1952 to 2009. She also had a few guest-starring roles, in television series such as “New York News” (1995), and “NYPD Blue” (1995), in both of which she played a journalist. In the later ‘90s, she also secured a couple of big screen credits: in 1996 she appeared in “The Long Kiss Goodnight” with Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson, and then in 1998 she starred in two movies – the crime drama “Rounders” with Mat Damon and Edward Norton, and period drama “Dangerous Beauty” with Catherine McCormack and Rufus Sewell, all adding steadily to her net worth.

However, all of her career-defining roles were on the small screen. The first was her performance as Dr. Sydney Hansen in the television drama “Providence” from 1999 to 2002, and for this role, Melina won the TV Guide Award for Favorite Actress in a Drama in 2000. Afterwards, she did a brief stint on Broadway, starring as Sally Bowles in the musical “Cabaret” (2003). Next came perhaps her most memorable role to date, that of Detective Stella Bonasera in “CSI: NY” (2004-2010), with co-stars including Gary Sinise, Carmine Giovinazzo, Anna Belknap, and Eddie Cahill. She played the outspoken, and at times rash detective for six seasons of this successful TV series, which increased her net worth significantly.

After she left the show in 2010, Melina starred in two movies, “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” (2010) in which she played Greek goddess Athena, and “Snitch” (2013), with Dwayne Johnson, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Pepper. She also appeared as a guest-star in “Hawaii 5-0” (2015), and the short-lived science fiction series “Extant” (2015). Her most recent project is the film called “Wake”, which is currently in pre-production.

Regarding her personal life, Melina resides in Los Angeles with her family, husband Peter Constantinides and their two daughters. Her family upholds the dedication to their Greek ancestry by travelling to Greece once a year, and visiting their relatives and friends. In her free time, Melina enjoys Pilates, reading, swimming, and listening to music, particularly James Taylor.

Of Indian ancestry, Aarti alongside her brother Nishad, and sister Kruti moved a lot within Pennsylvania with her family when she was still a toddler, including living in Pittsburgh, Mt. Lebanon, Wexford and Fox Chapel.

Aarti made her professional acting debut in 2006, in the film “The Memsahib”, directed by her sister Kruti, who is a filmmaker, who was mainly responsible for luring Aarti towards the performing arts, since their parents are doctors and wanted all their children to follow in their footsteps. After her debut, Aarti appeared in a commercial for Volvo, and started auditioning for new film and television roles. However, she secured only minor roles in such TV series as “Quarterlife” (2008), and “Heroes” (2009), until in 2010 luck smiled upon her as she was chosen for the part of Priya Koothrappali in the TV comedy series “The Big Bang Theory” (2010-2011), which increased her net worth to a large degree. Her career now got underway, and in 2012 she featured in the comedy-drama film “The Monogamy Experiment”, starring Amy Rider, Edgar Morais and Tohory Masamune, while in 2015 she made a notable appearance in the romantic comedy film “I’ll See You in My Dreams”, with Blythe Danner, Martin Starr and Sam Elliott in the lead roles, which further increased her net worth.

She is now working on the drama film “Love Sonia”, starring Demi Moore, Freida Pinto and Mark Duplass, scheduled for release later this year, so her net worth is certainly still rising.

When it comes to her personal life, Aarti is married to Purvesh Mankad, with whom she has a daughter. She now resides in Los Angeles with her family.

Milla Jovovich Net Worth



Milla Natasha Jovovich was born on 17 December 1975, in Kiev, Ukraine (then in the USSR), and is a model, actress and singer, perhaps best known for her breakthrough role in the film “The Fifth Element” in 1997, with Bruce Willis and Gary Oldman.

So just how rich is Milla Jovovich, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Milla has a net worth of over $45 million, accumulated from her various career elements spanning almost 30 years since she began modelling in 1987.

Milla Jovovich Net Worth $45 Million

Milla had a really unusual childhood, maybe that’s one of the reasons for her multi-million dollar net worth. Jovovich started her carrier in modeling from the early age of nine, a few years after she and her parents moved from Ukraine, which at that time belonged to the Soviet Union, to Los Angeles, California, in 1980. She even dropped out of school at the age of 12, when Gene Lemuel discovered her, and she signed a contract with Prima Modeling Agency. Milla Jovovich  was covered by magazines including Vogue, Glamour, Madmoiselle, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, and has been advertising brands including L’oreal, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, Donna Koran, Revlon for many years.

However, exclusive looks and beauty was not the only value she had: Milla Jovovich has a great voice, a talent to write songs, design fashion and find herself in acting as well. Milla started her acting career in 1988 in the film “Two Moon Junction”, but the roles that gave this girl much more attention were in “Dazed and Confused” in 1993 and “The Fifth Element” in 1997 directed by Luc Besson, in which she worked with Bruce Willis. Of course, subsequently all five films based on “Resident Evil” made Milla Jovovich’s popularity and net worth go through the roof. The original movie was so successful that it was even turned into a video game.

Between her acting in those two movies, Milla tried the shoes of a singer and a song writer, and released her debut album – “The Divine Comedy – which was really appreciated by the audience and critics and even received positive feedback from Rolling Stone magazine’s, John McAlley; in his opinion the album was remarkable. In 1999 Milla Jovovich became a member of the band named Plastic Has Memory, and performed some gigs in New York and Las Vegas, but unfortunately not with her new band, and Milla has never released a second album.

As for her career in fashion, Milla launched her first line in 2003, and her brand was successful until 2008 when she decided to close her business because of lack of time, which is perhaps no surprise, assuming that all of her free time was taken-up by her daughter Ever Gabo Anderson, who was born in 2007.

As for other details of Milla’s personal life, aside from several well-known relationships, she has married three times, all husbands met when taking some part in films in which she was acting. She first married Shawn Andrews in 1992, which was apparently quickly annulled by her mother; ironically, he and Milla were starring in “Dazed and Confused”! The second was with the director of “The Fifth Element” – Luc Besson (1997-99), and she has been married to Paul W. S. Anderson, who worked with Jovovich on the set of “Resident Evil”, since 2009, and he is the father of her two daughters. The family is based in Los Angeles.

Milla is something of a philanthropist too, and often participates in and supports various charities including UNICEF, World Education, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and many more.
