Amanda Peet Birth date/place, Movie and Biography

Amanda Peet

Amanda Peet (January 11, 1972-) is an American motion picture actress.

Born in New York to a Quaker father and Jewish mother, Peet attended Friends Seminary with Liev Schreiber and studied history at Columbia University, where she auditioned for acting teacher Uta Hagen. During her 4-year period of study with Hagen, Peet appeared in the off-Broadway revival of Clifford Odets’ Awake and Sing.

Her first screen performance was a television commercial for Skittles. Her early roles included a guest starring role on Law & Order, and she made her film debut in 1995, in Animal Room. Peet maintained a steady acting career in relatively obscure indie movies.

Her first major role was as “Jack” in the 1999 TV series Jack & Jill which aired for two seasons. Her first wide-release feature film came in 2000, with The Whole Nine Yards, opposite Bruce Willis, elevating her status from supporting actress to lead.
