Rene Russo was bornon 17 February 1954 in Burbank, California, United States, American, is Actress. Rene Marie Russo is an American actress, filmmaker, and former supermodel. Known for her elegant beauty, her longevity in the highly competitive film industry unerringly reflects her inherent talents as a performer. She started her career as a model in the 1970s and soon became one of the most prominent figures working in her profession. At the beginning of the next decade, she studied theatre and acting before making appearances on stage in Los Angeles and elsewhere in California. Russo made her screen debut on the ABC’s drama series ‘Sable’ in 1987, portraying the character Eden Kendell. Two years later, she played Tom Berenger’s love interest in her first movie outing, ‘Major League’. Initially sceptical about her capability as an actress, the critics were won over by her consistency. They especially loved her in Wolfgang Petersen’s ‘Outbreak’, in which she held her own against Dustin Hoffman and Morgan Freeman. However, by her own admission, she has never been passionate about acting. In 2005, she took a long, self-imposed break. Recently, she has made a comeback with the superhero flick ‘Thor’ and has starred in her husband’s Academy Award-winning film ‘Nightcrawler’.
