Who Is Christina Applegate
We all first knew Christina Applegate as the air-headed blonde on FOX’s raunchy comedy Married…With Children. But it was no laughing matter when Christina was diagnosed with breast cancer. But just as with her resilient career, Christina put up a serious fight and came out on top.
In 2020 Christina Applegate is alive and well with a net worth of $20 million dollars.
The Acting Baby
Born in the city where dreams are made reality TV, Los Angeles, Christina was raised by her mother, Nancy Priddy, an actress. A career in acting, just like mom, chose Christina when she was only three months old. Christina landed her first gig as a baby in the arms of her mother who was appearing on the soap opera Days of our Lives.
From there Christina went on to appear in commercials before she landed a role on the iconic sitcom that would launch her career. At only 15 years old, Christina snagged the role of the perky, ditzy blonde Kelly Bundy on the hit show Married…With Children. Christina stuck with the show for 11 seasons before the set lights dimmed in 1997.
A Big Hit
In 1998, Christina took a turn on the film circuit with The Big Hit and Mafia! before taking over the box office in the romantic comedies The Sweetest Thing alongside Cameron Diaz in 2002 and A View From the Top the following year opposite Gwyneth Paltrow. As her film career slowly built steam, Applegate also found time for love. She married her longtime boyfriend, actor Johnathon Schaech in the October 2001.
In 2004, Christina sealed her place amongst one of comedy leading men when she appeared in the hilarious and successful Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy as news anchor Veronica Corningstone opposite Will Ferrell. After a slow spell, Christina made it back to TV with a starring role in the brand new sitcom Samantha Who? In 2007. As a bubbly blond who suffers from amnesia, Christina went back and forth between her character’s previous bad girl wild days and new reformed self. Christina made audiences laugh for two seasons before the show was cancelled.
A Close Call
But it wouldn’t be a show gone south that would attempt to bring the actress down—in August of 2008, it was reported that Christina was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to early detection, Christina was declared cancer free just weeks later, but her recovery came at a cost. Not wanting to take any risks—her mother was also a breast cancer survivor—she made the decision to undergo a double mastectomy.
Although Christina did not have a show to go back to when she came out of recovery, Christina’s new grateful take on life wouldn’t allow her wallow. In 2010 she appeared as the funny and wise older sister in Going The Distance with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long and also lent her voice to Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. That year, she also got engaged to her Porno for Pyros bassist boyfriend, Martyn LeNoble, and the couple announced that they were pregnant with their first child. Although she didn’t need a comeback, Christina proved that nothing—even cancer—could keep a funny girl down.
Martyn LeNoble and Christina Applegate married in 2013.
Defining Quote “I’m clear. Absolutely 100 percent clear and clean. It did not spread. They got everything out, so I’m definitely not going to die from breast cancer.”
