Tara Reid Actress

Tara Reid

The adorable and sexy blonde with cat eyes emerged on the hollywood spotlight in her role as "Vicky" in the 1999 teen hit movie "American Pie". Tara is notorious for excessive "partying", nevertheless, her mainstream popularity is undeniable, especially after the November 2004 "Glitch", when her bare breast was exposed in public, and images of it soared throughout the internet. Tara Reid was born on November 8, 1975, in Wyckoff, New Jersey. The daughter of Tom and Donna, teachers who run a pair of day care centers, Tara was immersed into acting early on. Of Irish, Italian, French, Hungarian, and English descent, Tara may have an All-American look, but her look has always been unique enough to get her acting roles, even as a child. She made her debut in a children's television game show, Child's Play, in 1982, and then appeared in commercials for products like Crayola, Jell-O and McDonald's. Joining a class consisting of fellow child actors such as Macaulay Culkin, Jerry O'Connell, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Holly Marie Combs, Tara attended the Professional Children's School in New York, New York. Tara Reid's earlier work includes a bit part in Saved by the Bell: The New Class in 1994 and a guest spot on California Dreams in 1996.

But in 1998 she scored her first high-profile role as Bunny Lebowski, the much younger wife of The Big Lebowski, in the movie of the same name. That same year, she appeared in I Woke Up Early the Day I Died, and had a larger role as a college campus DJ in the teen thriller Urban Legend, sharing the screen with Alicia Witt and Rebecca Gayheart. 1999 was Tara's breakthrough year. She appeared in the made-for-TV movie What We Did That Night and had a small role in Cruel Intentions, a teen-oriented version of Dangerous Liaisons. After Around the Fire, Tara starred as Vicki in the surprise gross-out hit of the year, American Pie, along with sexy Shannon Elizabeth and Mena Suvari.

Now more of a recognizable star, Tara was seen in Body Shots (1999) and in the star-studded flop, Dr. T & the Women (2000); not even Helen Hunt or Kate Hudson could save that disaster. But while 2000 was a quieter year career-wise, it was nowhere near boring for Tara, as she met former MTV VJ (and now NBC Last Call host) Carson Daly during Spring Break in March and he proposed that October. Tara and Carson called it quits in 2001, and the breakup allegedly led to Tara's brief bout with anorexia. By late 2001, she was healthy again. 2001 was a big movie year for Tara, with roles in Just Visiting and Josie and the Pussycats, co-starring Rachael Leigh Cook and Rosario Dawson.

She also reprised her role in American Pie 2, and took on another "college girl" gig as a high school paper reporter in the comedy National Lampoon's Van Wilder. In 2003, Tara starred in Devil's Pond and played Ashton Kutcher's love interest in My Boss's Daughter. In 2005, Reid can add Alone in the Dark (a thriller based on the video game), Wicked Prayer and Land of Canaan to her resume. Although Tara has not been in a memorable film since Van Wilder, she continues to make headlines. Known for her heavy drinking and party-girl lifestyle, Tara counts fellow partier Paris Hilton among her circle of close friends. One person she is not good friends with is Internet babe Cindy Margolis, whom she physically fought with. Margolis is married to Reid's ex-boyfriend, restaurateur Guy Starkman.

In addition to Carson Daly and Guy Starkman, Tara has been romantically linked to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback Kyle Boller and financial analyst Jason Ader.

While the paparazzi always seem to get shots of Tara Reid stumbling out of bars drunk, the most famous image of her is another "Nipplegate," which shows her left breast popping out of her dress as she arrived at hip-hop artist P. Diddy's birthday party in New York. When she's not partying it up or acting, she also serves as a fashion consultant for her brother Patrick's clothing store, called Patrick Reid.

 

Reel To Real: Tara Reid Puts On Her Anthropologist Glasses

Her role in 'Alone in the Dark' seems a bit of a stretch. Tara Reid in "Alone in the Dark" .
The Reel Story: In the new thriller "Alone in the Dark," we find Hollywood party girl Tara Reid breaking character and eschewing the "American Pie" films and Maxim covers of her past to play anthropologist. The Atari-game-turned-event also stars Christian Slater as Edward Carnby,
a paranormal investigator who happens to be Reid's ex.

There is a mad scientist (Mathew Walker), of course, and Edward is convinced the scientist, Professor Hudgens, did something evil to the children at the orphanage where he grew up. Conveniently, the Hudgens has left the orphanage behind in favor of his new stomping grounds, an abandoned gold mine that houses a portal to the underworld that's teeming with inter-dimensional baddies.

Edward enlists Reid's character, Aline Cedrac, to decipher some ancient artifacts that are related to an extinct Native American tribe, a task Reid tackles with sass and smarts (see, she's wearing glasses).

While we wouldn't dream of questioning Miss Reid's intellect, we can't help but wonder, does she have what it takes to be an anthropologist?

The Real Story: In a word, no.

The 29-year-old Wyckoff, New Jersey, native has been acting since the age of 6, when she started appearing in commercials. She attended the Professional Children's School in New York, which caters to young people working in the fields of performing and visual arts, competitive sports and modeling. In other words, it's a high school for working celebrities that allows them a flexible schedule to focus on acting, modeling or sports. Other famous grads include Jerry O'Connell, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Holly Marie Combs, Julia Stiles, Uma Thurman and Scarlett Johansson. A talented group, to be sure, but qualified to study ancient cultures?

To be an anthropologist, one must possess, at the very least, an undergraduate degree in anthropology from an accredited university or college. Anthropology, the study of human beings, is divided into two subdisciplines: cultural and physical. Reid's Aline, with her extensive knowledge of artifacts and ancient cultures, would have probably focused on cultural anthropology and archeology, possibly with another undergraduate degree in a foreign language. However, most anthropologists doing this kind of fieldwork have graduate degrees, since a bachelor's degree will normally only gain you entry-level work — research assistant, museum technician and the like.

Anthropology isn't just a job, it's a scholarly pursuit. Anthropologists have helped identify bodies in mass graves, saved artifacts from looting in Africa and Iraq, studied and cataloged shrines to 9-11 in New York, and much more.

Tara Reid? Well, her pursuits are bit more leisurely (and usually cataloged in your favorite gossip rags).

 

Tara Reid Challenges Expectations, Runs From Monsters In 'Alone In The Dark'


Sci-fi thriller finds actress playing an archaelogist. Tara Reid might be slipping into the shoes of an ass-kicking action star, but the "American Pie" actress is still quite the softy at heart.

"I'm afraid of the dark if I hear the slightest noise," said the raspy-voiced actress, whose latest
movie, "Alone in the Dark," opens Friday (January 28). "My mind definitely plays tricks on me. I'll sleep with the night-light on if I hear a noise. It freaks me out."

Based on the Atari video game Alone in the Dark, Part IV, "Dark" is a sci-fi thriller that finds Reid playing an archeologist who explores an island of unknown terrors with her paranormal-investigating ex-boyfriend (Christian Slater). While the film looks big-budget, the production was modest compared with most science-fiction films.

"You had to have a great imagination," Reid, 29, said of playing alongside nonexistent nightmarish creatures that were later CGI'd into the film.

Best known for her work in teen comedies ("Van Wilder," "My Boss's Daughter" and the aforementioned "Pie" series), Reid relished the opportunity not only to break the mold, but to work with Slater.

"It was really different for me to do a sci-fi thriller, and it was so much fun working with Christian," Reid said. "He was awesome and such a great actor. And running from monsters? It was just a whole different beat to this movie."

While "Dark" has its fair share of classic horror-film elements, Reid — who cites "Alien" as one of her favorite films — emphasizes that it's not a conventional screamer. "There's a lot of action in the film, but it also has a heart because of the romance between [Slater] and [my character]."

The actress already has a number of movies in the can that should see release later in 2005, including the indie comedy "Knots," "Silent Partner" and the thriller "Wicked Prayer," which stars Edward Furlong, David Boreanaz and Dennis Hopper.

But the project closest to her heart is a surprisingly self-aware one: A yet-untitled FOX sitcom that finds Reid lampooning her party-girl image.

"It's loosely based on my life, kind of," she said. "[My character] plays an actress in Hollywood. She's always going out and having fun with her friends. She has a good heart, but sometimes she gets into trouble."

But Reid also stresses that the show won't be a straight-up spoof of her life. "[She's] kind of a Lucille Ball character," she said.

 

'Alone' Actress Tara Reid Seeks Boyfriend

"Alone in the Dark" actress Tara Reid is tired of being alone.
The 29-year-old voiced her need for a man in her life on Monday's (Jan. 31) episode of "The Ellen Degeneres Show," report news sources.

"I want a nice guy, a nice, funny, good sense of humor, cute, obviously, you know, just a good guy," says Reid, urging the single male viewers to send in a 60-second tape of themselves to "audition" for the role of boyfriend. Reid remains optimistic about her chances. "I'm gonna get married on 'Ellen,' you guys, I could see it," she says.

All joking aside, Reid does seem to want to ditch her party girl image and settle down, perhaps because she's beginning to see the appeal of motherhood. "Your body almost yearns for it," she says in an AP interview. "The way I look at children now is different than I ever used to. You almost feel your clock ticking. That's when I know I'm growing up."

The new Reid, who admits that she no longer parties with gal pal Paris Hilton, has even begun taking roles against her usual girlish-vixen type. In the recent "Alone in the Dark," she plays a bespectacled anthropologist, a role that audiences aren't buying any more than Denise Richard's portrayal of a nuclear scientist in 1999's "The World Is Not Enough." "Alone" didn't even break into the Top 10 films at the box office in its debut weekend.

Reid's film credits include "The Big Lebowski," "Cruel Intentions," "Dr. T and the Women," "Josie and the Pussycats," "Van Wilder" and "My Boss's Daughter." She next co-stars with Edward Furlong and David Boreanaz in "Wicked Prayer."

Tara Reid stars in "American Pie 2"

Did you like the direction your character, "Vicky's" relationship with "Kevin" went in the sequel?
I thought it was great. I thought it was really real, and something that happens in everyone's life. I just feel like it happens in everyone's life. Everyone gets broken up with in their life, and one person likes the other more, and sometimes one wants to go back and the other doesn't. I thought it was a cool storyline to touch on. Because in the first one, our storyline was so real too about being boyfriend and girlfriend, losing your virginity to each other, and everyone is nervous. I wanted to say he loves me, and for it to be perfect. So I thought it had a really cool arc, the way it turned.

Your storyline touches on breaking up and remaining friends.
That's the hardest part. And that's the one thing I was kind of psyched about in this storyline because you don't always stay friends with them. You either hate each other, or one thing or the other. Sometimes you wish you could have stayed friends with them. There are a couple ex-boyfriends I am still friends with, and there are some I will never talk to again.

There's a great scene of "Vicky" and "Kevin" kissing in the beginning of "American Pie 2." Was that a tough scene to film?
Yes, that was the hardest. It's so much easier to kiss in a movie, than do a non-kiss. We had to do that scene forty times. It was so hard to get the perfect kiss. We literally shot it forty times. It was impossible. I'm like "Dude, let's just kiss" (laughing).

Did you have any worries about doing a sequel?
Not really because we knew everyone was coming back. Once you know everyone's coming back, you kind of feel safe. And then once we had the table reading, it's like "Here we go again." Hearing everyone's voices playing the characters again was so funny. It was exciting.

J.B. Rogers was the 1st Assistant Director on "American Pie." What was working with him as the director like for you?
He's great. J.B.'s so cool. That's what really made the movie so great - everyone was still working together. Even though Chris and Paul Weitz weren't directing this one, J.B. was. I mean, we knew J.B. so well from the first one. The 1st Assistant Director is such a major player - you have no idea - in a movie. So J.B. already knew us, and we already had a relationship with him. It was just easy and so much fun.

Was it hard to get back into a role you've already done?
It's so much easier. It's like riding a bike. Once you ride that bike, you never lose it. Once you play a character, you never lose it in your soul. You have it in you forever. It's so much easier to go two years later and be your character. It's natural. It's like anyone. You look at yourself right now and then you look at yourself in two years. You're still the same person, you're just a little different. And that's how we played our characters.

What about the chance of a third "American Pie?"
Let's see how the second one does. If the second one does really good, and if there is a good script, and if everyone came back again, maybe. But if not, there's no way it would happen. Plus, most of us had options to do the second one. No one has an option to do the third one, so it'd be a lot harder to get everyone back. Maybe, you never know.

How much longer do you think you'll be able to play teenage characters?
I was kind of hoping that this would be my graduation from this genre. And getting to step it up to play more female leads, older roles - I'm 25 years old. That's where my direction is, where I want to go right now.

Ashton and Tara Star in "My Boss' Daughter"

Eager but accident-prone young executive Tom Stansfield has finally happened upon the opportunity of his lifetime: he can impress his megalomaniac boss and the boss's luscious daughter, Lisa, by simply house-sitting their lavish mansion for one night. It's a plan that could lead to love and success, if only the guests didn't keep arriving.

From director David Zucker ("The Naked Gun," "Airplane!") comes an outrageous, fast-and-rowdy romantic comedy about a young man whose quest for the girl of his dreams is interrupted by a constant flow of calamities. One by one, a barrage of wild and crazy visitors take over the house he's supposed to be watching and turn it upside-down, as well as inside out.

"My Boss' Daughter" stars Ashton Kutcher ("That 70's Show") as Tom, the hapless house sitter who manages to upend the entire neighborhood in one night, and Tara Reid ("American Pie") is the bewitchingly beautiful Lisa. Among the guests are Molly Shannon ("Saturday Night Live," "Shallow Hal") as a vengeful ex-employee and Andy Richter ("Late Night with Conan O'Brien)," as Lisa's brother, who's seeking refuge from a gun-toting, maniacal drug-dealer. Terence Stamp joins the party as Tom's power-drunk boss. The film also stars Carmen Electra, Michael Madsen, Ever Carradine, Jon Abrahams and David Koechner.
