Since then she's been in around 20 films, and although lots of them have been mainly for older people, she did appear in big-screen version of telly cartoon The Flintstones.

She has often been praised by critics for the quality of her acting, and now has won the ultimate prize, an Oscar.

She was born in 1968 and was a successful model before turning to acting, first on TV and then on film.
