Emmanuelle Chriqui is an actress who was born in Canada to Moroccan parents on December 10, 1977. She is perhaps most famous for her role in the TV series Entourage, but she has also appeared in a number of films, including You Don't Mess with the Zohan (2008), Wrong Turn (2003), 100 Girls (2000), and Detroit Rock City (1999).
Chriqui's involvement with the Environmental Media Association placed her in the midst of a scandal. She volunteered as the celebrity mentor to Carson Senior High School's organic garden, appearing at an event there sponsored by Kellogg Garden Products. While Kellogg Garden Products sells some organic soil amendments, the majority of its business is selling sewage sludge-based composts, which are illegal to use in organic farms and gardens. In the picture at left, you can see a bag of Kellogg's Gromulch with Chriqui. For more on this controversy, see the article on the Environmental Media Association.
