Vivacious actress Vivica A. Fox has been attracting attention for performances that mix equal parts sass and class since making her screen debut in Born on the Fourth of July. A native of Indianapolis, where she was born July 30, , Fox got her start on television with a stint on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives. After making her debut as a hooker in Oliver Stone's aforementioned Born on the Fourth of July, the actress continued to do much of her work on television while appearing in the occasional film. Fox subsequently appeared in a diverse array of films, ranging from the acclaimed black ensemble romantic drama Soul Food , which cast her as one of three sisters the other two were played by Vanessa L. Haven, to Why Do Fools Fall in Love , which featured her in a critically lauded portrayal of one of the three wives of singer Frankie Lymon. Fox's profile declined somewhat in the new millenium, although an appearance in the battle-of-the-sexes comedy Two Can Play That Game caught the attention of Quentin Tarantino, who was casting his long-gestating fourth feature, Kill Bill. As the first victim of hired killer Uma Thurman, Fox brought a little blaxploitation-era sass to the role, making for a memorable, suburban-kitchen battle scene. In addition to her flourishing film work, Fox continued to work on the small screen, most notably as Dr. The following year, she could be seen hoofing it up as a contestant on the astronomically popular ABC competition Dancing With the Stars.

Vivica A. Fox
In a guard-gated community with a pool and spa, the three-bedroom home draws the eye with an exterior of stucco and stone. Inside, crystal chandeliers and custom stained-glass windows give the common spaces some character. Last year, she told The Times that the living room was her favorite space because she used it to entertain.
Vivica A. Fox knows a thing or two about kissing. So we figured she'd be the ideal person to ask whether good oral hygiene is important to a good kiss.
There's a scene in Kill Bill Vol. Quentin Tarantino's fans have been waiting for the rematch ever since. The four year-old in question, named Nikki Bell, was the daughter of Vivica A. Fox's character Vernita Green, and Fox has a pretty good idea who she'd like to play the grown-up version of her cinematic offspring: Zendaya. Because her and Uma are both very tall, and it would just be kick-butt, and I love her. Tarantino himself has openly mused about the possibility of a third Kill Bill, and he's suggest his plans would likely involve Nikki.
