10 Famous Actresses You Might Run Into The Next Time You Go Snowboarding

 

1. Paris Hilton
Famous for being in: The Simple Life, House of Wax, a sex tape, jail.

Interesting fact: She owns five Chihuahuas, two cats, three ferrets and two monkeys.
Snowboarding skills: She has a go at snowboarding during the Sundance film festival. New York Mag covered the experience… 
Clothes on, it was time to pick out a snowboard. "What's the best size for someone who really sucks?" she asked, laughing, then rejected one for being boyish green. "Can't I have something that's at least a little pretty?" she asked, pointing to a Roxy board with colorful swirls. Strapping in, she put a hand on her hip, beamed for the cameras (both Oakley's and her own) and squealed, "I got the pink one!" Hilton's "lesson" consisted of asking a pro one question — "How do I stop?" — and taking off before he could answer... 

Her balance was surprisingly good, aided by her arms outstretched like wings. Then she snowboarded straight into a giant orange net.
Here’s a video
Not a great snowboarder then, you’re more likely to see her on a monoski...

2. Eliza Dushku
Famous for being in: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse and True Lies
Interesting fact: Her favourite colour is black.
Snowboarding skills: The hard-boiled journos at New York Mag also covered her lessons 
On Monday, Eliza Dushku, Matthew Rhys, and Dave Annable (from Brothers & Sisters) all made valiant attempts to tame the fluffy white beast.
Even after the folks at French Connection kitted them out in Spyder outfits, Grenade gloves, Oakley goggles, and Gnu snowboards, the trio looked about as comfortable with the snow as tribesmen from a remote part of Papua New Guinea. Annable and Rhys confessed they had never even ridden a chairlift before. Two-time Olympic silver medalist Danny Kass, who’s been traveling the West filming a snowboarding movie called The Boned Age: In Search of Honor, Powder, and Fine Chicks, had been charged with giving them snowboarding lessons, but, he confided to New York, he wasn’t too keen on working with beginners. He'd only signed on, he said, because he thought Scarlett Johansson would be there. (She didn’t show up.)

3. Denise Richards
Famous for being in: Wild Things, The World is Not Enough and reality TV show Denise Richards: Its Complicated.  She was ranked as one of the worst Bond girls of all time by Entertainment Weekly for her role in The World is Not Enough.
Interesting fact: She suffers from emetophobia, the fear of vomiting.
Snowboarding skills: If you are in the US you can watch her snowboarding here

And if you are not in the US here are some pictures of what you are missing...

a very friendly guy

A way, way, way too friendly

4. Jillian Murray
Famous for being in: Wild Things: Foursome
Interesting fact: “Obsessed with Interior design”
Snowboarding skills: She seems to be pretty good at falling over.

5. Eva Longoria 
Famous for being in: Desperate Housewives and her first acting role was in Beverly Hills 90210
Interesting fact: Favourite recipe she makes at home is chicken tortilla soup.
Snowboarding skills: None. She just dressed up to advertise Bebe Sport 
I assume she also doesn’t surf, race motorbikes or normally accessorise with a shoulder bicycle...

6. Tori Spelling
bad spelling
Famous for being in: Beverly Hills 90210 (both versions) and a series of a reality shows called Tori & Dean: Inn Love and Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood 
Interesting fact: Had plastic surgery on her nose after a parrot bit her in 1994
Snowboarding skills: Reality TV Magazine covered her attempts: 
When she wraps filming, they head to Whistler for a small vacation. They all go out to dinner, and Patsy tells them that her family supports her getting the lap band. Tori and Dean take the kids out to experience snow for the first time. Tori is a little freaked to try snowboarding - as she should be - because she sucks.

She might be rubbish but fellow old skool 90210 star Jason Priestley is apparently fucking awesome at skiing. You have to skip through all the emotional whiney crap to 6:30 where the skiing starts and you’ll spot a couple of snowboarders in hard boots just before at 7.20 Jason Priestley launches into freaking orbit...

7. Andie MacDowell
Famous for being in: Four Weddings and a Funeral, Ground Hog Day and L’OrĂ©al ads
Interesting fact: In her first film, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, her southern accent was so heavy that her voice was entirely dubbed by Glenn Close.
Snowboarding skills: Another person who tried snowboarding at the Sundance festival. Life magazine has these photos
PARK CITY, UT - JANUARY 23: Actress Andie Macdowell attends Oakley 'Learn To Ride' Snowboard fueled by Muscle Milk at Oakley Lodge on January 23, 2010 in Park City, Utah.
Muscle Milk. Is it just me or is that a euphemism?

8. Mila Kunis
Famous for being in: That 70’s show, Family Guy, Forgetting Sarah Marshal and Book of Eli.
Interesting fact: Her favourite movie is Dirty Dancing, her favourite colour is white and she dates Macaulay Culkin.
Snowboarding skills: There is little evidence to work with here, so no idea how good she is, but according to this interview with The Insider she’s a good bet for becoming snowboarding’s Natasha Richardson .
That ’70s Show actress Mila Kunis says she gets into so many accidents that her black-and-blue body is “always bruised up”. The 26-year-old actress said: “I had a snowboarding accident. I fell off a horse. I’ve had concussion, a fractured rib… I walk into walls. I’m always bruised up.” In fact, the Ukraine-born actress happily showed off her latest scar that stretches across her throat. She got while “being stupid” on a jet ski in Hawaii, she says.

9. Sophia Bush
Famous for being in: One Tree Hill and is appearing in upcoming movie Chalet Girl 
Interesting fact: Her favourite colour is orange.
Snowboarding skills: Not sure about here snowboarding ability but I do now know that she has a huge biff, now that I’ve read Star Blogs..

Actress Sophia Bush is bummed after getting messed up and suffering a crushed ego after injuring her knee while snowboarding. The actress, a newbie to the sport, was at in Whistler earlier this month when she didn't want to look like a wuss and took on a slope way beyond her abilities. She says, "I'm learning to snowboard. I was prepared for the cold with all the layers of clothes on, but the layers didn't help me so much when I ran into the mountain."
