PATRICIA ARQUETTE

After "a couple of years off just to really mourn some things," Patricia Arquette (left, at the Golden Globes) scored a home run as psychic mom Allison DuBois in NBC's midseason hit Medium. Before her small-screen success, the 36-year-old mother to Harlow, 23 months (with fiancé actor Thomas Jane), and Enzo, 16 (with musician Paul Rossi), was known mostly for offbeat roles in films such as 1993's True Romance (right) and 1997's Lost Highway.
