Diane Lane (born January 22, 1965) is an Academy Award-nominated American actress.

Biography

Lane was born in New York City. The daughter of acting coach Burt Lane and singer/Playboy centerfold Colleen Farrington, Lane was raised by her father after her parents divorced when she was still a baby.

She began acting professionally at the age of six at the La Mama Experimental Theatre in New York where she appeared in acclaimed productions of Medea and The Cherry Orchard, among others.

At 13, she made her film debut opposite Sir Laurence Olivier in A Little Romance, and at 14 was featured on the cover of Time.

One of the few child actors to make a successful transition into adult roles, Lane made a hit with audiences in the back-to-back cult films The Outsiders and Rumble Fish, and for a time was designated a member of the so-called "Brat pack." However the two films that should have catapulted her to star status, Streets of Fire and The Cotton Club, were both box office flops and her career languished as a result. It wasn't until 1989's hugely popular and critically acclaimed TV mini-series Lonesome Dove that Lane made another big impression on a sizable audience.(she was nominated for an Emmy Award). She won further praise for her role in 1999's A Walk on the Moon, opposite Viggo Mortensen.

In 2002 Lane was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actress for her performance in Unfaithful, and was honored for her work in that film by The New York Film Critics and The National Society of Film Critics. She followed that up with Under the Tuscan Sun (2003), based on the best-selling book by Frances Mayes.

Numerous web media sites have her rumored to take on the role of Jane Jetson in Warner Bros'. upcoming live action The Jetsons movie in 2009, but there has been no confirmation as of yet.

Lane dated rock star Jon Bon Jovi in the 1980s and she was married to French actor Christopher Lambert from 1988 to 1994. They had a daughter, Eleanor Jasmine Lambert, born September 5, 1993, and were divorced following a prolonged separation.

Lane married actor Josh Brolin on August 14, 2004. On December 20 of that year, she called police after an altercation with him, and he was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. Lane declined to press charges, however, and the couple's spokesperson characterized the incident as a "misunderstanding."
