Biography

As a child performer, Rachel Miner amassed an impressive resume and worked with such distinguished directors as Woody Allen and Hal Hartley. In addition, soap aficionados knew her as Michelle Bauer, the troubled young heroine of CBS' long-running "Guiding Light". But, the general public, however, probably knew of the actress from her highly publicized 1998 marriage to -- and 2000 separation from -- fellow actor and kid star Macauley Culkin. Few, however, were prepared for the actress' star-making turn (complete with full frontal nudity) in Larry Clark's dark and disturbing drama "Bully" (2001). In the film inspired by real events (although there was much debate over just how factual the motion picture was), Miner portrayed Lisa Connelly, a troubled Florida teen who goads her boyfriend (Brad Renfro) into murdering his abusive best friend (Nick Stahl).

Miner on her relationship with her family: "They don't treat me like a kid. We discuss everything, and they let me make my own decisions." - from the New York Post, March 31, 1998

.

Miner on her relationship with Culkin: "Ultimately, the marriage was a choice made with our hearts, not with our heads. I can tell you what I feel right now, I'm loving us as friends. I can't tell you what I'll feel tomorrow or what he'll feel. But I do think I'll always be protective of him. Once you enter that part of my heart, you don't leave." - from Us Weekly, July 23, 2001
