The stunningly, beautiful Maria Menounos was born June 8, 1978 in Medford, Massachusetts.
Menounos was a contestant in the Miss Teen USA Pageant in 1996, representing Massachussetts. Maria was asked by then host Bob Goen, regarding what she’d like to do when she grew up. Her deja-vu response was “I want to work with you at E.T., Bob!”. Well she must had a crystal ball because six years later, Maria Menounos joined Entertainment Tonight in 2002.
In 2003, Maria was featured on the MTV show “Punked”. In 2005, her acting career began to blossom as she was cast as a sexy nurse in the hit movie The Fantastic Four. That same year, Maria’s likeness and voice were featured in EA Games From Russia with Love as Eva Adara.
Maria Menounos is best known for her appearances as a correspondent for The Today Show and Access Hollywood, and abroad for co-hosting the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 in Athens, Greece.
In 2008, Menounos became the host of “Hollywood Green” on the “Planet Green” network, bringing glamour to green living. Both as the special correspondent for daily entertainment newsmagazine “Access Hollywood,” and on “Hollywood Green”, Maria provides TV viewers with comprehensive coverage of entertainment and news personalities.
In 2008, she became the first journalist to interview the entire Barack Obama family as a whole. She is represented by Creative Artists Agency.
