Bijou Phillips

Bijou Lily Phillips (born April 1, 1980) is an American actress, fashion model, socialite, and singer. Some of her larger film roles include Bully, Havoc, Hostel: Part II, and Tart. Bijou Phillips was born in Greenwich, Connecticut, and is the daughter of John Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas and his then-wife Geneviève Waïte, a South African model. Her older brother is Tamerlane Phillips and her half-siblings are Mackenzie Phillips, Jeffrey Phillips, and Chynna Phillips. The name "Bijou", which is French for "jewel," was taken from the song "My Petite Bijou" by Lambert, Hendricks and Ross. She was a child Equestrienne champion. Phillips began modeling at the age of 13. Emancipated from her parents the following year, Phillips lived on her own in New York City. Phillips was the youngest model ever to appear on the cover of Vogue, and appeared in one of Calvin Klein's more controversial ad campaigns.
At fourteen, Phillips attended the Sierra Tucson rehab center in Arizona—not because she was addicted to drugs, she claims, but to get out of trouble for running up a large credit card bill in her father's name. Philips was involved in a long-term relationship with rocker Sean Lennon, son of legendary singer-songwriter John Lennon of The Beatles. The four-year relationship ended when Lennon found out about an affair Philips had with Max LeRoy, his childhood best friend who lived down the hall in The Dakota apartment building in New York City. LeRoy's family owned the famous Central Park restaurant Tavern on the Green. Before Lennon and LeRoy had a chance to mend their relationship, LeRoy died in a motorcycle accident. This loss and the love triangle between Philips, Lennon and LeRoy was the inspiration for much of Lennon's 2006 album, Friendly Fire.
Philips has been in a relationship with That 70s Show actor Danny Masterson since 2004. Phillips began modelling at an early age to escape boarding school. Besides Vogue, Phillips has also appeared on the cover of Stuff, Interview, Playboy, People, Detour, Nylon, Paper, 944, and Missbehave magazines. She has been on the catwalk of Jill Stuart and Heatherette. Her debut album, released in 1999, was titled I'd Rather Eat Glass, a sentiment that expressed her feelings about her former profession. She toured with the Lilith Fair music festival in 1999. As of 2007, Phillips is working on a second album and has posted several demos on her MySpace page.
In 1999, Phillips had a brief cameo in the film Sugar Town, playing a girl wanting an autograph. That same year, Phillips appeared in Black and White as Charlie. In 2000, she played Estrella Starr in Almost Famous. 2001 saw Phillips get bigger parts, including a supporting role in Bully and starring roles in Tart and Fast Sofa. Later film appearances include Octane, The Door in the Floor, Havoc, What We Do Is Secret, and Hostel: Part II (for which she was nominated for Scream Queen in the 2007 Scream Awards). Completed but not yet released is her starring role in Dark Streets, and she's reported to be starring in a remake of the 1974 film, It's Alive. She also has an uncredited cameo in the vampire comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead, directed by Jordan Galland. The film is set to be released in 2008.
