Rebecca Romijn (pronounced Romaine, like the lettuce) (born November 6, 1972), in Berkeley, California. Her father was Dutch-born and worked as a custom-furniture maker; her mother was American-born, of Dutch descent, and was an English teacher. Rebecca attended Berkeley High School where her nickname was the "Jolly Blond Giant", then she attended the University of California at Santa Cruz where she majored in Music, but left in 1995.

Romijn (in her own words): "I was a freshman at UC Santa Cruz, really poor, and restless to see the world. I used to sit in my dorm room, thinking, "I just know I'm missing out on something. But, of course, I had no money. And so this friend hooked me up with an agency and it happened very quickly. I moved to Paris, got a cover of French Elle, and stayed for two and a half years". This tall (5' 11") blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty was a natural for modeling, and has posed for Sports Illustrated, 'Christian Dior' and Victoria's Secret, to name but a few. Rebecca first met 'John Stamos' in 1994, at a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and had her first date with him at Disneyland. They married in September 1998, but have since gotten divorced.

Romijn's favorite foods are fillet mignon, tuna sashimi and Hagen-Dazs Cappuccino Commotion ice cream. But to keep her weight at a svelte 130 pounds, she stays fit with a rigorous stretching and strengthening routine (her firm body tone is evident when compared to photos of her earlier modeling, where she was very slim but not toned).

Romijn's most famous movie role, so far, was as the shape-shifting "Mystique" in X-Men (2000), based on the long-running comic book series about teenage mutant superheroes (that 'Jack Kirby' and 'Stan Lee' created in 1962). To play "Mystique" every day, Romijn had to start out nude, and then two female makeup artists would apply blue body paint and other stick-on parts for 8 hours a day. Romijn told 'Jay Leno' on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992) that things like tissue paper would stick to her hips; and, one day, the long hours of wearing sticky paint makeup made her so upset that director 'Bryan Singer' told her to have a glass of white wine and relax. Notwithstanding those technical difficulties, X-Men (2000) was a box-office bonanza, and Romijn's future in films was assured.

  • The film _Femme Fatale (2002)_ (qv), which she starred in, opened on her 30th birthday in North America. November 6, 2002.
  • Along with Ian McKellan playing Magneto in the first three live-action X-Men films, James Franco as Harry Osborn in the first three live-action Spider-Man, and Gene Hackman's non-consecutive turns as Luthor in three Superman films, one of the few people to play a comic book criminal in three live-action films.
  • One of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People (1997).
  • One of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People (1999).
  • Born on the same day as actress 'Thandie Newton' (qv).
  • Ranked #30 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2007 list.
  • Still shops at thrift stores.
  • Measurements in 1998: 35B - 24 - 35.
