Here are this week's contestants:
This actress, comedian, writer, and producer is probably best known for her involvement in television sketch comedy but has also made appearances on the big screen. Kristen began acting in college after a teacher suggested it and she attributes the majority of her comedy skills to her involvement in an improv group The Groundlings. Fun fact: she's a vegetarian!
Never let go, Rose! From a young age English actor Kate Winslet studied drama and acting. But not only is she involved in theater, she also narrates documentaries and children's books! Winslet is very passionate about not letting the media dictate her self image and is an advocate for animal rights. Fun fact: she's also a vegetarian!
Growing up, Natalie Portman always knew she was different than the other kids. She was very serious, hard working, and always knew what she wanted. Not much has changed. Portman is an advocate for numerous causes ranging from religious, political, and environmental topics. Fun fact: she's also a vegetarian!
