Denise Richards

According to Denise Richards, 31, playing agent Penelope Snow in the comedy Undercover Brother required some delicate footwork. In one scene the former Bond girl had to fight in a shower with a female costar while clad in a skintight white suit and stilettos. “I was like, ‘You want me to do what now? I’m going to break my neck,'” she recalls. “So I’d be wearing a Reebok on my left foot, and I’d kick up with my sexy heel for the camera.”

Choreographing her summer nuptials with Charlie Sheen, 36, has been far easier, thanks to a wedding coordinator and Giorgio Armani, who personally designed her dress. (“Such a fairy tale,” the Illinois native says of the VIP treatment.) Even Sheen, who recently met her on a movie set and got down on one knee to propose in January, has helped. “In the beginning he was like, ‘You do all the girlie stuff,'” says Richards, who lives with him in L.A. “But he has such an eye. He has an opinion about the flowers and the food and everything. He gets to vote.”
