This 27-year-old actress was raised in the lower Manhattan, New York City neighborhood of SoHo. She lived in an apartment beneath the hard partying art dealer Larry Gagosian, whose hot tub often leaked into her parent’s place.

She attended private school at Saint Ann’s in Brooklyn, where she attended with future fashion designer Zac Posen for whom she has since modeled.

Aside from acting, she is a skilled artist, designer, and writer who enjoys listening to punk rock music. She is often spotted wearing her personal trademark, which is recognized simply as a pair of combat boots and a leopard skirt. In 2003, she appeared on the cover of the New York Times, and in 2008 she appeared in the movie 'Choke' based on the Chuck Palahniuk book of the same name.

It has been said by one of her directors that she has an innocence about her, but she is also a bit tragic and mysterious.
