Christina Applegate is an award-winning actress known for her romantic comedy movies. On TV, she first became famous for playing Kelly Bundy on Married... with Children.
Some of Applegate's earlier credits include roles in Grace Kelly as the young titular character, Heart of the City and Jesse where she played the lead. On the silver screen, Applegate starred in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Wonderland, The Sweetest Thing and The Big Hit.
In 2007, Applegate made her big TV comeback as she spearheaded the cast of Samantha Who? On the comedy series, she played a 30-year-old woman named Samantha who, after an accident, develops amnesia and has to rediscover her life. The show, however, only lasted for two seasons. Four years later, Applegate was cast in yet another lead TV role. This time it's on the series Up All Night, which is about a couple struggling with the unexpected changes that come upon the arrival of their newborn child.

[on accepting her role in the sitcom "Jesse" (1998)] This was a major commitment. I really had to sit and think about it. I eventually came to the conclusion that it came into my life for a reason.
There are a lot of sacrifices a mother makes when she's raising a child by herself. I saw it when I was growing up, watching all my mother did for me. But it wasn't until recently that I fully understood the price she paid because of how we had to struggle.
The person who I have my child with is going to be the right person. I don't want to raise a child by myself. I could do it. But I definitely don't want to. I want to be a mother who has the original father there. And I want to be with that person until I'm 80 years old, sitting out on the porch with our glasses of lemonade, laughing about our lives.
