Liv Tyler

Liv Rundgren Tyler (born July 1, 1977) is an American actress and model. She is best known for her fantasy hottie role as Arwen in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. She is the daughter of Aerosmith's frontman, Steven Tyler. Tyler was born Liv Rundgren at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, New York. She is the first born daughter of Bebe Buell, a model, singer, and former Playboy Playmate of the month Miss November 1974, and Steven Tyler, the lead singer of Aerosmith. Her maternal grandmother, Dorothea Johnson, founded the Protocol School of Washington. Her mother named her after Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann. At birth, Bebe Buell claimed that rock star Todd Rundgren was Tyler's biological father. Tyler thus spent most of her childhood living with that understanding, only discovering her true parentage at age nine. Liv discovered that she was Steven Tyler's daughter after meeting Steven Tyler and noticing that Steven Tyler's other daughter, Mia, looked very similar to herself. When she asked her mother about the similarity, the secret was revealed. The truth about Tyler's paternity did not become public until 1991, when she changed her name from Rundgren to Tyler, but kept the former as a middle name. Buell's alleged reason for the initial decision was that Steven Tyler was too heavily addicted to drugs at the time of Liv's birth. Since learning the truth about her paternity, Liv and Steven Tyler have developed a close relationship. They have also worked together professionally, once when Liv performed in Aerosmith's video "Crazy" and again when Aerosmith wrote and performed many of the songs in Liv's film Armageddon. Tyler attended the Congressional School of Virginia, Breakwater Elementary and Wayneflete schools (in Portland, Maine) before returning to New York City with her mother at the age of twelve. She went to York Prep in NYC for Junior High and High School, graduating in 1995. One month later Tyler set off for Italy, to star in Stealing Beauty. Starting a career as a model at the age of fifteen, Tyler appeared on the covers of magazines and starred in commercials for makeup. However, after becoming bored with modeling less than a year after starting to model, she quickly moved into acting. She never took acting lessons. She first became known to TV audiences when she starred alongside Alicia Silverstone in the music video for the Aerosmith song "Crazy" in 1993, which was voted #23 in VH1's top 100 music videos of all time. Between 1993 and 1996, she was in seven films. Tyler's most successful role came in the Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001), in which she played Arwen Undómiel. In 2008, she will star alongside Edward Norton in the upcoming The Incredible Hulk.
