Busy Philipps: Kim Kelly
After Freaks and Geeks closed up shop in 2000, Busy Philipps, 33, moved on to Dawson’s Creek in 2001 for its final two seasons, playing Joey’s (Katie Holmes) bubbly college roomie and eventual bestie, Audrey Liddell. Busy also enjoyed runs on the shows Love, Inc. and ER before finding a new home on the ABC-now-TBS comedy Cougar Town as party girl Laurie Keller. She also starred opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in the cringe-worthy 2011 rom-com I Don’t Know How She Does It.
Busy, who really does live up to her name, married screenwriter Marc Silverstein in 2007 and gave birth to their daughter, Birdie Leigh Silverstein, on August 13, 2008. She’s Michelle Williams’ bestie (since their Creek days) and little Matilda Ledger’s godmother. Honestly, how does she do it? (And why oh why did she and SJP agree to do that movie?!)
But no matter which roles she takes (good or bad), she'll always be Kim Kelly, the girl bully who just wants to be loved.
