A model by the time she was 17 and married to a rock star (Rod Stewart) more than 20 years her senior by the time she was 21, Rachel Hunter spent much of her young adulthood famous for being, well, famous. Born Sept. 9, 1969, in Auckland, New Zealand, Hunter achieved supermodel status with her appearance in the 1989 swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.

Over the next decade, Hunter continued to grace the covers of major magazines while also raising two kids and earning record sums for her modeling appearances and endorsements, including a reported $1.8 million fee for posing topless for Playboy.

Also during this time, Hunter began to take acting lessons -- training that's paid off with parts in independent films such as 1999's A Walk in the Park and 2000's Two Shades of Blue, as well as the 2006 hit comedy The Benchwarmers.
