Mariel Hadley Hemingway

Type :  


Mariel Hadley Hemingway is an American actress.


 early life
Hemingway was born in Mill Valley, California, the third daughter of Byra Louise (née Whittlesey) Hemingway and Jack Hemingway, a writer. Her sisters are Joan Hemingway and Margaux Hemingway . Margaux, who became an actress and model, died of a barbiturate overdose in 1996 at age 42.

Her paternal grandparents were Hadley Richardson and writer Ernest Hemingway . She was named after the Cuban port of Mariel—her father and grandfather visited the village regularly to go fishing. Her middle name is from her paternal grandmother.

Hemingway grew up primarily in Ketchum, Idaho, where her father lived, and where her paternal grandfather had spent a great deal of time as a sportsman and writer. Mariel also spent part of her adolescence growing up in Los Angeles and New York City.

Hemingway's first role was with her sister Margaux in the film Lipstick . The movie was not considered especially good, but Mariel received notice for her acting and was nominated as "Best Newcomer" for the Golden Globes Award that year.

Hemingway's most famous role was in Woody Allen's Manhattan , a romantic comedy in which she plays Tracy, a high school student and Allen's lover. Only sixteen during filming , she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

In Personal Best , she played a bisexual track and field athlete in a film noted for some explicit lesbian love scenes. In connection with Personal Best, she appeared in a pictorial in the April 1982 issue of Playboy and was also on the cover.

She starred as Dorothy Stratten in Star 80 , a film about the Playboy model's life and murder. Reports circulated for years that Hemingway had had her breasts enlarged to play the role of Stratten, but during a 2007 appearance on the late-night talk and variety show, Fashionably Late with Stacy London, she said she had had the surgery before Star 80. Her breast implants were removed years later after they had ruptured.

Hemingway was also featured in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace as Lacy Warfield. Subsequently released additional footage showed an expansion of her role. It was released in a very rough edit with unfinished visual effects in a November 2006 deluxe edition DVD and as part of The Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition. She also co-starred in the 1991-93 ABC series Civil Wars.

Hemingway has played a lesbian or bisexual woman in several films and television shows, including, Personal Best, The Sex Monster, In Her Line of Fire, and episodes of the TV series "Roseanne" ("Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and "December Bride") and Crossing Jordan. Hemingway, however, is not gay. She has said she formed a "big connection with the gay-and-lesbian community" after Personal Best and enjoys taking roles in "cutting-edge" productions.

Hemingway has a perfume, "Mariel", by H2O+.

She is currently the host of Spiritual Cinema, a monthly television show dedicated to spiritual films. She has begun hosting a series of yoga practice videos Yoga Now, with guru Rodney Yee.

 personal life
In December 2008, Hemingway announced via her web site's blog that she had separated from her husband earlier in the year. Hemingway had been married since December 9, 1984 to Stephen Crisman. They had two daughters together: model Dree Hemingway and Langley Fox Hemingway . As of early 2011, Hemingway is romantically involved with Bobby Williams, with whom she is working on a lifestyle guide.
