Demi Lovato launched her career on "Barney & Friends" before scoring her first big break with the Disney Channel's "Sonny with a Chance," which debuted in 2009. The former child actor also starred on 2008's "Camp Rock" and its 2010 sequel, appeared on "Glee" and "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series," served as a judge on the U.S. version of "The X Factor" during its second and third seasons and released five successful studio albums between 2008 and 2015.

She went to rehab in 2011 for emotional and physical issues and in March 2017 celebrated five years of sobriety. After dating UFC star Luke Rockhold in late 2016, Demi is now seeing MMA fighter Guilherme Vasconcelos.

Joe Manganiello made his feature film debut in 2002's "Spider-Man."

The HBO drama helped him land roles in "Magic Mike," "Sabotage" and "Magic Mike XXL." In late 2015, Joe and Sofia Vergara tied the knot after less than two years as a couple.

He made his feature film debut in 1981's "Ragtime" and appeared in 1983's "Yentl" — for which he earned a Golden Globe nomination — but is most often associated with his role as Inigo Montoya in 1987's "The Princess Bride." Since he proclaimed, "You killed my father; prepare to die," Mandy has released seven albums, continued his work on the stage, appeared in several films and earned Emmy nominations for his work on "Chicago Hope," "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Homeland," on which he currently stars.

Julia Roberts is SmurfWillow (right), the leader of Smurfy Grove, the titular village in "Smurfs: The Lost Village." According to her official character description, the brand new character is "simultaneously peaceful and fierce — a confident and gentle leader who has raised warrior girls who are capable of anything."
Julia Roberts got her big break when "Mystic Pizza" debuted in 1988. Since then, she's scored Academy Award nominations for her performances in "Steel Magnolias," "Pretty Woman" and "August: Osage County." She also won the Oscar for best lead actress in 2001 for her work in "Erin Brockovich." Additionally, Julia earned Emmy nominations for her work on "Law & Order" in 1999 and on "The Normal Heart" in 2014.

They tied the knot in 2002 and have since welcomed three children: twins Phinnaeus and Hazel and son Henry.

Since then, she's appeared in two installments of the "Resident Evil" film franchise and in "Blue Crush," "S.W.A.T.," "Avatar" and "Machete."

Michelle was romantically linked to Colin Farrell early in her career and dated both Cara Delevingne and Zac Efron in 2014.
Ellie Kemper is the voice of the bubbly and optimistic SmurfBlossom, who "lights up a room with her huge energy — she walks and talks a mile a minute, she's never met a Smurf she didn't like, and she bowls everyone over with her candy-sweet, bubbly personality."
Ellie Kemper scored her big break when she joined the cast of "The Office" as Erin Hannon in 2009. Since then, she's popped up in films "Get Him to the Greek," "Somewhere," "Bridesmaids," "21 Jump Street" and "Sex Tape."

The former child star, who's served as the voice of the titular princess on "Sofia the First" since 2013, also voiced characters on "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" and "Phineas and Ferb" and appeared in 2010's "Killers." She moved on with "The Killing" actor Levi Meaden after her long-term relationship with Laurent Claude Gaudette came to an end in 2016. But things haven't always been easy for the TV teen, who was legally emancipated from her mother in 2015 after she was removed from her care in late 2012 amid allegations of abuse. She's also become a loud proponent for body positivity after undergoing a breast reduction surgery in mid-2015.
Meghan Trainor is the voice of Smurfy Grove's SmurfMelody, who can "bust out an empowering tune at just the right moment."
Though Meghan Trainor launched her career as an artist when she was just a teenager, releasing independent albums, singing backing vocals and writing songs for other acts, it wasn't until her breakthrough single "All About That Bass" debuted in 2014 that she suddenly shot into the spotlight. She scored two Grammy nominations for the hit track and has since released two major studio albums: 2015's "Title" and 2016's "Thank You." Meghan even won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 2016.
