Name: Amanda Peet
Birth Date: January 11, 1972
Birth Place: New York City, NY, USA
was born January 11, 1972, in New York City,
NY. The younger of two daughters, Amanda was
raised by her father Charles, a lawyer, and
mother Penny, a social worker, before their
subsequent divorce in 1990.
Although it was clear from the start that Amanda
had the showbiz flair after she jumped on a
stage in the middle of a play, she majored in
history at Columbia University. It was there
that a drama professor encouraged her to audition
for Uta Hagen, an acting teacher.
She can do the whole glamorous movie star thing,
but what she really likes doing is sitting down
with the boys, drinking beer, telling jokes,
and eating Cheetos.
Amanda Peet is the star of WB's Jack & Jill,
and has had several noteworthy movie roles including
The Whole Nine Yards, Saving Silverman, Whipped,
and She's The One.
Jack & Jill has been praised with positive
reviews and has gained quite a fan base (even
men tune in, thanks to Amanda and her costar,
Jaime Pressly). This was undoubtedly the role
Amanda needed to boost her career, as the short-lived
Partners certainly wasn't.
And a string of sexy movie roles didn't hurt
her reputation either, as seen in 1999's Body
Shots and Whipped, in which she stars as a dominant
tease who turns the world of three men upside-down.
After a role in Two Ninas, Jump, and the comedy
Isn't She Great, Amanda gained more recognition
as a film actress in her role as a dental hygienist
in The Whole Nine Yards, starring Bruce Willis.
Her topless scene was certainly the film's highlight.
Amanda practically reprised her role of the
domineering girlfriend from hell in 2001's Saving
Amanda can still be seen as Jacqueline "Jack"
Barrett in Jack & Jill (although the show
may be canceled due to poor ratings), but Amanda
has nothing but roles in upcoming high-profile
films, such as Changing Lanes, with Ben Affleck
and Samuel L. Jackson, High Crimes, with Ashley
Judd and Morgan Freeman, and Igby Goes Down.
Named one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful
Women in the World, Amanda is a one-woman man
to actor Brian Van Holt, her Whipped co-star.
Actress AMANDA PEET is reportedly trying to
hide the fact she's pregnant with fiance DAVID
BENIOFF's baby. THE WHOLE NINE YARDS star is
desperate to keep her baby news a secret as
she films new TV show STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET
STRIP. A source tells American magazine Life
+ Style, "It's being kept a secret on the
set, but she's three months along."
