Liv Tyler biography

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Liv Tyler

Date of Birth: July 1, 1977

Liv Tyler is the daughter of Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler. But she didn't always knows know this. Her mother, former Ford Model and Playboy Playmate Bebe Buell had an eight month affair with Tyler that resulted in Liv. But Tyler grew up thinking her mother's long-time boyfriend, musician Todd Rundgren, was actually her father. In any case, one look at Tyler's lips and you have to know where she got those from. Combine that ever-so-full and suggestive mouth with a five-foot-ten frame, piercing blue eyes, and flawless porcelain skin and you can see why Bernardo Bertolucci wanted her to star in his film Stealing Beauty, about an American girl who discovers herself while on vacation in Italy.

"Bernardo gave me a sense of confidence," she says, "because I've never studied acting or taken classes before. I just keep thinking every day how lucky I was."

Tyler's mother, by her own admission, once had relationships with a whole HMV store of musicians including Mick Jagger, Elvis Costello, Jimmy Page, David Bowie, and Rod Stewart. Regardless of her mother's rather profligate past, she raised a remarkable level-headed daughter who says, "I pride myself on keeping centered."

Liv, a vegetarian who hates piercings and tatoos, married musician Royston Langdon on March 25, 2003. They have a young son named Milo.

Although she hasn't been in the public spotlight much in recent years, she's still been keeping busy. In December 2011, Liv collaborated with Givenchy perfumes and Sony Music and in February 2012, she released her cover of the hit INXS song "Need You Tonight." She can also be seen starring in the 2012 comedy film Robot & Frank.
