Rebecca Romijn
Name : Rebecca Romijn
Height : 5' 11'' (180 cm)
Date of Birth : 6 November 1972
Place of Birth : Berkeley, California, USA
 
Biography:
 
Rebecca Romijn was born on 6 November 1972 to a Dutch father and a Dutch-American mother. Her parents, a custom toy and furniture maker and an English teacher, divorced when she was seven. Romijn attended Berkeley High School before she enrolled in the music program at the University of Southern California at Santa Cruz to study singing.

Later, a friend introduced her to a Parisian modeling agent, who convinced her to move to Paris. Within a short time, Romijn landed the cover of French Elle and signed contracts with the cosmetics company Biotherm and the famed fashion houses of Christian Dior and Escada. Over the course of her modeling career, she has posed for Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated, as well as graced numerous magazine covers.

Bored of modeling and with the support of her boyfriend John Stamos, whom she married later in 1998, Romijn took a chance on acting. In 1997, Romijn finally made her television debut as David Schwimmer's girlfriend on Friends.

Romijn made her first film debut starring as the bearded lady in Dirty Work (1998) before modeling lingerie for Mike Myers in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999). She then returned to television to play David Spade's wife on Just Shoot Me (1999). Originally hired to appear in three episodes, Romijn was such a big hit that producers asked her to return later in the season.

For her role as Mystique in X-Men (2000), she had her body painted from head to toe. Her work in the film led to a part in Rollerball (2002), a remake of the '70s film about the futuristic world of sports. That same year, she earned the title role in Femme Fatale (2002).

Romijn returned in the sequel X2: X-Men United (2003) with a much bigger role for Mystique than the first film. In 2004, she costarred opposite Thomas Jane in The Punisher. That same year, she starred with Greg Kinnear and Robert De Niro in the thriller Godsend.
