Hometown: Baltimore

Claim to fame: We all talk about Halle Berry and Paula Patton, but it's safe to say Nicole Ari Parker is grossly overlooked. From starring in hit films as far back as Boogie Nights to Brown Sugar to Remember the Titans, not to mention a successful TV series (Soul Food),  Parker is a beauty who proves time and again she's worthy of recognition. Consider her an official member of Complex's Wifey Hall of Fame.
