But Messing will likely always be best known for her breakthrough role as interior designer Grace Adler on the hit sitcom "Will & Grace." The show brought her near-instant stardom and a string of Golden Globe and Emmy nominations; in 2003, she took home the Emmy for Best Actress in a Comedy. In 2007, she earned another Emmy nod for TV's The Starter Wife.
Messing's big-screen credits include A Walk in the Clouds (1995), Hollywood Ending (2002), The Mothman Prophecies (2002), Along Came Polly (2004) and her first leading role in 2005's The Wedding Date (opposite Dermot Mulroney).
Love becomes complicated when World War II vet Paul Sutton (Keanu Reeves) falls for Victoria (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon), a pregnant and unwed woman who persuades him -- during their first encounter -- to pose as her husband at a Napa Valley vineyard owned by her despotic father, Alberto (Giancarlo Giannini). Director Alfonso Arau helms this romantic fable, which won a Golden Globe for Best Original Score. Anthony Quinn co-stars.
