BIOGRAPHY:

Tobey Maguire's parents were 18 and 20 - and unwed - when he was born. His father, Vincent Maguire, was a cook and sometime construction worker. His mother, Wendy Brown, was a secretary and aspiring screenwriter. They split two years after his birth. This resulted in moving constantly as a youth, spending time in California, Oregon, and Washington. He quit school in the ninth grade and pursued acting roles. He did several commercials and bit roles on various TV shows before landing a starring role on the Fox comedy "Great Scott!" (1992). That role lasted nine weeks before the show was canceled. Although avoiding drugs and alcohol, he still is known for running with the party set, including Leonardo DiCaprio's group. Tobey is a vegetarian and studies yoga.

  • During the Australian release period of _Spider-Man (2002)_ (qv), he appeared on an Australian late-night variety show with his co-star 'Willem Dafoe' (qv).

  • Almost couldn't do _Spider-Man 2 (2004)_ (qv) after having severe back pains at the end of shooting _Seabiscuit (2003)_ (qv), 'Jake Gyllenhaal' (qv) was already in talks to replace him and had already begun preparation.
  • He and his best friend, 'Leonardo DiCaprio' (qv), were both in movie directed by 'Sam Raimi' (qv). DiCaprio was in _The Quick and the Dead (1995)_ (qv) and Tobey was in _Spider-Man (2002)_ (qv), _Spider-Man 2 (2004)_ (qv) and _Spider-Man 3 (2007)_ (qv).
  • He was originally set to play the role of Jake Hoyt in _Training Day (2001)_ (qv), opposite 'Denzel Washington' (qv). He had even gone through two months of training with narcotic officers, weapons training, and put on a lot of muscle but the role was later given to the producer's first choice, 'Ethan Hawke' (qv), and Tobey went on to star in _Spider-Man (2002)_ (qv) instead.
  • Tobey and his fiancée, Jennifer Meyer, are the parents of a girl, Ruby Sweetheart Maguire, born at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on November 10, 2006.
