Biography And Filmography:

Having the same, sensual, full-lipped mouth as her famous father Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, the tall and lanky Liv Tyler first followed in her mother Bebe Buell's footsteps and began a modeling career at the tender young age of fourteen. Raised by Buell and rock musician Todd Rundgren, she did not learn who her real biological father was until she was eleven, but it was her appearance as a young teen beauty, along with future star Alicia Silverstone, in Aerosmith's "Crazy" video in 1994 that really made her famous. 

That same year, Liv appeared in the role of a young teen girl who kills her sexually abusive father and compliant mother when she discovers him molesting her brother, and then comes on to her therapist (Richard Dryfuss) in Bruce Beresford's thriller "Silent Fall" (1994). Tyler followed with roles as the object of a pizza chef's crush in James Mangold's "Heavy" (1995), and as a young slacker who was not as perfect as she seemed in  "Empire Records" (1995) with Renee Zellweger.

Bernardo Bertolucci had searched for a young girl who could star in his film "Stealing Beauty" (1996), looking for an actress who could show both innocence and lust. He had almost given up hope of finding the right actress when he met Liv. "I felt immediately that I'd found a kind of miracle." Similar her own childhood, the film cast her as a young American girl who arrives in Italy knowing one father but leaves knowing another. 


Woody Allen also cast Liv Tyler, but later cut her part in the musical "Everyone Says I Love You" (1996), and she took a role in in Tom Hanks' "That Thing You Do!" (1996), where a new band scores a big hit in 1965 and rides it as long as they can, with lots of help from theirs manager.  

After starring in another coming-of-age tale, Pat O'Connor's "Inventing the Abbotts" (1997) with Jennifer Connelly, Liv started on "Armageddon" (1998) featuring Billy Bob Thornton, her first blockbuster film. Playing Bruce Willis' daughter and Ben Affleck's love interest, she got her first taste of the kind of script that can earn hundreds of millions of dollars thanks to Disney's marketing machine. The film tells the story about when an asteroid the size of Texas is headed for Earth, and the world's best deep core drilling team is sent to blowup the rock from the inside.

Tyler then joined an all-star cast that included Patricia Neal, Glenn Close, Julianne Moore and Charles S. Dutton for the comedy "Cookie's Fortune", where conflict arises in the small town of Holly Springs when an old woman's death causes a variety of reactions among family and friends. She was also in the casts of Jake Scott's "Plunkett & Macleane" (1999), and Martha Fiennes' "Onegin" (1999)

TylerShe was the love interest of three men (Matt Dillon, John Goodman and Paul Reiser) who all tell their tale of despair sitting around the bar in "One Night at McCool's" (2001), produced by Michael Douglas who also acted in the film. Liv reteamed with Altman and "Cookie's Fortune" screenwriter Anne Rapp as one of the women of "Dr T and the Women" (2000), starring Richard Gere and featuring Kate Hudson, as the gynecologist, surrounded by Helen Hunt, Laura Dern, Farrah Fawcett and Shelley Long, among others.

Liv Tyler was then hired and cast to play Arwen, Queen of the Fairies, in Peter Jackson's three-part adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, a project employing 20,000 extras and 1,500 different computer-generated effects. First of the series was "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (2001) with Orlando Bloom,  Cate Blanchett and Elijah Wood as "Frodo Baggins", and set in a small village in the Shire where a young Hobbit named Frodo has been entrusted with an ancient Ring. He must embark on an Epic quest to the Cracks of Doom in order to destroy it. 

Second in the series was "The Two Towers" (2002) where Frodo and Sam continue on to Mordor in their mission to destroy the One Ring. While their former companions make new allies and launch an assault on Isengard. The last in the trilogy was "The Return of the King" (2003) where the former fellowship prepare for the final battle for Middle Earth, while Frodo and Sam approach Mount Doom to destroy the One Ring.

Liv Tyler was now a Hollywood celebrity!

After the first two installments, Liv was again cast opposite Ben Affleck, this time along with his real-life fiancée Jennifer Lopez, in the comedy "Jersey Girl" (2004) where after his career is sidelined from an unexpected tragedy and a personal blowup, a single man must take care of his precocious daughter. Tyler then was cast for the romantic comedy "Lonesome Jim" (2005), where after failing to make it on his own, 27-year-old Jim moves back in with his parents and deals with crippling family obligations. 

After taking a year off, Tyler reappeared in the dramatic "Reign Over Me" (2007) starring Adam Sandler, a funny story about a man who lost his family in the September 11 attack on New York City and runs into his old college roommate. Rekindling the friendship is the one thing that appears able to help the man recover from his grief. She ended the year with another romantic comedy titled "Smother" (2007) with Dax Shepard and Diane Keaton, where after he's fired from his job, an everyday guy faces pressure from his wife to have a baby and from his mom, who has decided to move in with the young couple. 


 
Tyler wrapped the year with the horror thriller "The Strangers" (2008) starring Scott Speedman, about a young couple staying in an isolated vacation home who are terrorized by three unknown assailants.

Then Tyler hit pay-dirt with the summer release, and blockbuster smash hit, "The Incredible Hulk" (2008) starring alongside Edward Norton and Robert Downey Jr., in the Marvel Comics adaptation of the classic comic book hero Physicist Bruce Banner, who takes flight in order to understand, and hopefully cure, the condition that turns him into a monster.
