Rebecca Romijn was born on November 6, 1972 in Berkeley, California. Used to be a famous supermodel, she later turned her direction to acting and became a very well known actress by the 21st century. Romijn comes from Dutch heritage family whose father is a Dutch-born custom furniture maker, while her mother is an American-born English teacher, of Dutch descent.
Completed her education at Berkeley High School, Romijn eventually attended the University of California at Santa Cruz and majored in Music. During her first time studying at that university she was still in the process of finding "herself", who she really was that she often perceived herself to be really poor and restless to see the world. All that she knew was she's wishing to do something but she definitely had no money, but not until the day her friend hooked her up with an agency. That was truly the turning point of her. Soon thereafter, in 1995, she left the university with the intention to pursue a better career for which she had to move to Paris, got a cover of French Elle, and stayed for two and a half years there.
