Diva Database: Vivica A. Fox

2010 Hollywood Christmas Parade Benefiting Marine Toys For Tots

Her name is almost a declarative statement: Vivica, a fox. It’s the perfect name for a diva that’s been turning heads in movies and television with a curvy frame and feisty attitude. She hit the big time in “Independence Day” as Will Smith’s stripper girlfriend who saves the First Lady during an alien invasion and as an ex-assassin mom who’s dangerous with a knife in “Kill Bill.” On TV, she’s gone toe-to-toe with Larry David on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and shown her dancing cred on “Dancing with the Stars.” But her diva star turn was as Shanté, an all-knowing career woman intent on controlling her relationship in “Two Can Play That Game.”
