Once Amanda Peet asked: “Who are the actors in Hollywood s most likable, inspires her?” And she replied without hesitation: “I like Reese Witherspoon.” And then he added: “Perhaps because I always somehow casually mentioned that she grew up in a dysfunctional family, but she – is a normal girl.
Amanda Peet was born January 11, 1972 in New York. Prior to his parents’ divorce, which occurred in 1990, Amanda raised by his father Charles, the practice of law, and mother Penny, a former social worker. Although at the outset it was clear that acting thing – her future vocation, after leaving school, Amanda went to university “Columbia” at the Faculty of History. And what about her future vocation, it became obvious when one day, being with my mother to play one of the performances in the local theater, it is right in the middle of the action rushed to the scene and began to improvise.
A few years later, while studying at the penultimate year of university, she was listening to the legendary teacher Uta Hagen Dramatic Art. Amanda thought the idea of ??acting “too wonderful.” But classroom Hagen persuaded her. Girl completely rebuilt his schedule to withstand a marathon – a trip to the university and take classes at a studio Hagen, who was at the opposite end of the huge metropolis. In Hagen, she met other future young stars. It became a kind of mentor partner for learning and future actress Hope Davis. For example, when there is a need to find an agent, Pete totally confused. She turned to her friend, a student asking for help. Together, they sent 80 photos of Amanda to anyone who has only been possible, including the agency “Ross Report”, which is a “holy” place for most recognized talents and aspiring actors.
She got a call from the four agencies, and she visited every office, where he read heartfelt monologues. But the impression Amanda never produced. Yet some time later, she appeared his agent, and she began to try to commercials. After advertising candy “Skittles”, on the fee for which she lived for a year, and several failed screen tests for the first time she admitted to herself that too seriously fascinated by acting profession.
Over time acting career began to gain momentum. In the first stage of the career, Amanda has spent its force by nearly two dozen characters in a fairly low-brow and low-budget projects, among them the “Routine” (1997), “Naked Body” (1999) before getting an offer to play in her first life blockbuster “The Whole Nine Yards.” However, the case headway yet somewhat earlier. Audiences and critics approvingly took her work in television serials comedy “Jack and Jill”. For the role of Jacqueline Barrett, known as Jack on the show she was in the list of 50 most beautiful people in the world according to the magazine “People”, and a little later acquired the role of a daring and trendy Fissbeggler Judith, the heroine of the comedy “bitch.”
“The Whole Nine Yards” Amanda opened many doors. Through this comedy she has already become a popular actress in films, secured decent budget. In “Nine yards” Pete fearlessly stripping, playing Jill, sassy assistant, dentist, obsessively seeking to turn into a female gangster, she, however, successfully managed. Looking ahead, we note that recently on cinema screens the US went out already new film about the adventures of a dentist who at this time is called “Whole Ten Yards.” In this sequel to Amanda again reunited with former cast in the face of Matthew Perry and Bruce Willis.
After “Nine yards” Pete three or four times auditioned for sufficient visibility. Amanda craved these roles and even represented the directors future pictures videos of his past works, where, as she thought, to reveal the full range of her acting capabilities. Then she called Barr Stirz, screenwriter and director of the film “Igby Goes Down”. At the audition, he asked Amanda to play even Rachel, one of the heroines of the next movie, and someone like a muse in a drugged dope tormenting protagonist Igby, whose role is then played by Kieran Culkin young. After “Igby Goes Down”, “particularly serious crime”, where she played the girlfriend of the protagonist played by Ashley Judd, and “Changing Lanes”, where she played the wife of Ben Affleck’s character, Amanda was waiting for new proposals as long as eight months. But that did not make the actress to grasp at first offered the job.
Just recently, Amanda starred in his home in the old quarter of the Hamptons in the new film by Nancy Meyers’ Something’s Gotta Give. ” Here it was the company Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton, Frances McDormand and Keanu Reeves. Amanda’s really really come a long way from the colorless, featureless ensemble cast his first paintings to such stellar company. In this melodrama she played Marin Barry, an employee of the auction “Christie”, which brings in a weekend beach house owned by her family, a fairly elderly boyfrenda Harry Langer, played by Nicholson. The girl expects to be with her lover in private, but in the house finds his mother and aunt Erica Zoe. As a result, everything is upside down!
Who is waiting for its release two new comedies with Amanda. The first is called “Piccadilly Jim”. Shot in the style of the 30s, it tells the story of Americans with a scandalous reputation on both sides of the Atlantic, which should radically change their views, to regain the girl of his dreams. The second project, directed and written by the famous Woody Allen called “Melinda and Melinda”. Now at the stage of production is the thriller “Before the devil learns of your death,” of poorly organized robbery that ends in tears for its participants. It Amanda play a duet with Patricia Arquette. This picture also appears in the current year. And in 2005, we should expect from Pete two new roles. In the romantic comedy “It’s like love,” where, together with Ashton Kutcher, Amanda finds true love where it does not usually expect. And in the drama “she twisted” Pete will appear in the role of a music journalist. In short, now work in 32-year-old actress just heaps! As soon as the end of shooting the film “It is steep,” Pete hopes that her next role will fall one in which it will need to draw on the screen character in the style of Erin Brockovich, played a few years ago, Julia Roberts.
In general, in the past two years, Amanda Peet briskly gaining ground and has attracted worldwide attention, and does it with the help of fairly large projects. The actress has added to her roles have been played a number of impressive and very energetic characters. Here and reckless, heroine, deftly managed with weapons and sophisticated bogachki-aristocrat, madly adored by his parents. In the end, she soared upward and hit the list of the leading actresses in Hollywood.
Once Amanda Peet asked: “Who are the actors in Hollywood s most likable, inspires her?” And she replied without hesitation: “I like Reese Witherspoon.” And then he added: “Perhaps because I always somehow casually mentioned that she grew up in a dysfunctional family, but she – is a normal girl. And she chooses interesting roles. And in my works I try to imitate a little Nicole Kidman . I really want to work with her. And she knows Nicole about it. I told my agent and manager that if I did not get the role in her next film, they will both be fired. This, of course, a joke, but this is what I I want to. Now I’m still trying to make sense of the fact that most recently starred in some scenes with Jack Nicholson. Jack looks straight into my eyes and played so convincingly! It’s like you’re playing tennis, and someone sends you a ball the exact impact. But how difficult it is to answer exactly the same way! “.
