Biography


Blessed with an attractive look and a rare charisma which make her easily noticeable among any other actresses, Amanda Peet certainly has emerged as one of the bright movie stars Hollywood ever has. Although the road to success has been quite a rough path for her to undergo, she amazingly stayed on the track with an incredible perseverance to finally come into the world's recognition.

Raised in New York City, New York from the day she was born on January 11, 1972, Amanda grew up with her older sister under the nurture of her parents, Charles and Penny, before they decided to divorce in 1990. Her interest in acting was barely visible since the age of three when the little girl jumped on a stage in the middle of the play she was attending. Still, she considered it as a mere hobby and had never thought to pursue a career in this field until she entered Columbia University to study history following her graduation from Friends Seminary High School in Manhattan.
