Biography: Bridget Moynahan is a stunning goddess and she easily got a job in modeling. She appeared in Elle, Shape, Vogue and New Woman as the cover girl for these fashion magazines. Bridget wanted more and she studied acting at Caymichael Patten Studio in New York.

Bridget landed the role of Natasha in the very popular series of Sex and the City in 1999. In Sex and the City, she was a lady on her 20's that turned on Mr. Big to marry. She was Carrie's competitor. This was her television debut that has opened new offers for other big Hollywood blockbusters.
In 2000, she appeared in In the Weeds, Whipped and Coyote Ugly, where she played the role of a barmaid that has an attitude. She was a good actress and after Serendipity in 2001, bigger movies were offered to this model-actress. Alongside with Ben Affleck, she starred in The Sum of All Fears in 2002. She also landed a bigger role in The Recruit in 2003. A year after, she was seen on the Sci-fi I, Robot alongside with Will Smith.

It debuted on September 20, 2006, and was watched by almost 13.3 million viewers. Six Degrees debuted to varied reception, with David Hinckley of the New York Daily News writing, “In theory, it’s an intriguing concept for a series.

In an abandoned warehouse, a handful of men slowly regain consciousness, but they’ve been stricken with amnesia and have no idea who they are, where they are, or what has happened to them. All five seem to have been in some sort of serious scuffle; one is tied up (Joe Pantoliano), another has been handcuffed (Jeremy Sisto), a third has a broken nose (Greg Kinnear), and the other two have their share of scrapes and bruises (Jim Caviezel and Barry Pepper). As the men compare the tiny shards of memory they can pull from their minds, one finds a newspaper from two days before which features a front-page story about the kidnapping of a wealthy and well-known businessman. The men begin to suspect that they were involved with the kidnapping, but no one is sure if they’re on the right or wrong side of the law – or if one of them might happen to be the victim.

Lord of War

Bridget Moynaha: Lord of WarBridget Moynaha: Lord of War
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Bridget Moynahan, Ethan Hawke, Jared Leto, Ian Holm, Eamonn Walker, Sammi Rotibi

The movie begins with Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage) standing in a sea of spent shell casings. The rest of the movie is told in flashback, starting in 1982 and ending in the completion of the opening scene.

Through voice-over, Orlov describes the beginnings of his career. After Yuri sees a Russian mobster kill two would-be assassins, he decides to fulfill a necessity by providing guns. He partners up with his brother Vitaly (Jared Leto). Yuri's first break comes during the 1982 Lebanon War, when he sells guns to all sides of the conflict.

As he grows, Yuri (through voiceover) tells of his first incident with Jack Valentine (Ethan Hawke), an Interpol agent who cannot be bought with money. Yuri wins the first encounter when he changes the boat's name from the Kristol to the Kono and confuses Valentine.

During a business deal with a Colombian drug lord, Yuri is paid in cocaine instead of cash. Vitaly and he both get high on cocaine, but Vitaly becomes addicted, and Yuri checks him into a rehabilitation center. From that point onward, he conducts his arms business alone. Soon after this incident, he courts and marries model Ava Fontaine (Bridget Moynahan) and they have a child named Nikolai.

Yuri gets his second break after the Soviet Union dissolves. Yuri rushes to Ukraine after watching Gorbachev's Christmas Day 1991 speech of resignation on television. He begins buying tanks and other weapons to expand his operations.

One day, Valentine reveals to Ava that Yuri is a arms dealer. Ava convinces him to stop dealing and he complies for a short while. He is lured back in when his old friend, the dictator of Liberia (Andre Baptiste), approaches him and offers him more money. Yuri brings Vitaly along due to nervousness. During the transaction, Vitaly sees a group of villagers beat a woman and her child to death and tries to convince Yuri to stop the transaction. Yuri refuses; in response, Vitaly takes a grenade and blows up half the gun shipment. A nearby soldier kills Vitaly.

Back at home, Valentine follows Ava as she finds Yuri's security container. She and Yuri's parents disown him. Valentine predicts that Yuri will be put in prison for a long time. Yuri is released from custody, however, because he is a "necessary evil," as his role as a freelancer lets him distribute guns when the U.S government does want not to be seen supplying them. A free man, Yuri returns to arms selling.

While on a routine inspection of Russia's nuclear weapons facilities, Cabot and Ryan are invited to the Kremlin to meet with Nemerov personally.

Serendipity is a 2001 romantic comedy, starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. It was written by Marc Klein and directed by Peter Chelsom.

After the long-delayed Town and Country, director Peter Chelsom turns in his second 2001 effort with this love-at-first-sight romantic comedy that revolves around fate, destiny, and chance. Jonathan (John Cusack) and Sara (Kate Beckinsale) are two New Yorkers already in relationships when they meet one another, each reaching for the last pair of cashmere gloves at a department store. Over coffee, they strike up an intimate conversation, and Jonathan thinks they should see each other again. Unconvinced, Sara arranges an elaborate series of "fate" games; if they're meant to be together, she reasons, she and Jonathan will receive some sort of sign in the future. Flash forward several years, and the two are at opposite ends of the country -- Jonathan in New York and Sara in San Francisco, both engaged to be married. Still, neither can shake the memory of their chance encounter, and they both enlist their best friends (Molly Shannon and Jeremy Piven) to help them find their true love again.
