Biography

Oscar-nominated actress Diane Lane grew up in the spotlight of New York's downtown theater scene, and following several teen film appearances as a favorite of director Francis Ford Coppola - including lead roles in his films "Rumble Fish" (1983) and "The Outsiders" (1983) - she was heralded as Hollywood's most promising young starlet. But Tinseltown generally failed to match Lane's classical training with deserving roles, and the young actress found herself facing a career centered on her sex appeal. Instead, Lane opted for the stronger female characters often found in television movies and independent films, eventually enjoying the bulk of her critical success in more mature roles after the age of 35, when the adulterous drama, "Unfaithful" (2002) landed the actress firmly on the A-list map after more than 20 years of quality work. Enjoying her "second act," the newly appreciated actress landed starring roles in "Under the Tuscan Sun" (2003), "Must Love Dogs" (2005) and "Hollywoodland" (2006), while cementing her acting bona fides with "Secretariat" (2010) and "Cinema Verite" (HBO, 2011), making Lane one of the more highly sought actresses working in Hollywood.

Bonus Trivia

On her famous Time magazine cover: "It brought Time down to my level, it didn't bring me up to Time's level. It had nothing to do with my popularity." - Diane Lane quoted in Empire, December 1999

.

Elizabeth Weitzman: Do you worry about maintaining artistic integrity, since you need to remain visible to stay on top?Diane Lane: The industry's memory is quite short, it's true. I'm fascinated by how Hollywood has changed since I started. Today it's about immediate delivery. There's less risk and less art." - from Interview magazine, May 1999

.

Elizabeth Weitzman: It does seem like every article about you asks, "Will this be her time for superstardom?" What's that like?Diane Lane: [sighs] I don't know. It's the holy grail of questions, What's the missing ingredient? Maybe that I want some part of me to be private and secret and precious just to myself. There are so many options of how to create a persona - it doesn't need to be mega or nothing. Why I'm still here, I don't know, but I'm not going anywhere. This is just the second act. The third act is when you can tear off all the burdensome armor. You can get out there and really do some great work when you're not worried about your tits or your ass or your eyeliner." - from Interview magazine, May 1999

.

In an ironic twist, Lane's co-star in "A Walk on the Moon," Viggo Mortensen was one of two actors considered for the leading role in "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes." He lost the role to Christopher Lambert, to whom Lane was married from 1988 to 1994.
