Type :  


Rebecca Gayheart is an American television and film actress.


 early life
Gayheart was born in Hazard, Kentucky and raised in Pine Top, Kentucky, the daughter of Floneva (née Slone), who worked as a Mary Kay independent beauty consultant, and Curtis Gayheart, a miner and coal truck driver. She is of Irish, Italian, and German descent. She moved to New York City at the age of 15 where she completed her education at New York's Professional Children's School and the Lee Strasberg Institute.

In her first film role, Gayheart appeared in Brett Ratner's New York University short film Whatever Happened to Mason Reese? starring Mason Reese. She also appeared in the Ratner-directed music video "Nuttin' But Love" performed by Heavy D and the Boyz.

Gayheart's break into the television industry was a series of television commercials for Noxzema in the early 1990s, earning her the moniker "The Noxzema Girl". The commercials began airing in 1991 and brought her recognition. (This was also referred to at the end of the film Urban Legend, when one of the new college students remarks, "And Brenda character was the Noxzema Girl.")

In 1992, Gayheart was cast in her first major role in the soap opera Loving as Hannah Mayberry. In 1993 and 1994, she had a recurring role in the Vanishing Son action pack series. In 1994 and 1995, Gayheart played Bess Martin in the science fiction series Earth 2. In 1995, she had a recurring role as Antonia Marchette in the series Beverly Hills, 90210 as Luke Perry's love interest.

Gayheart has been a regular on the 1999 television series Wasteland, Dead Like Me, Vanished, and had a recurring role on Nip/Tuck. She was initially hired to play the part of Inara Serra in the 2002 series Firefly, but was dropped after only one day of filming. Morena Baccarin took over the role, and none of Rebecca's scenes were used.

In 2007, Gayheart guest-starred on Ugly Betty as Jordan, an ex-girlfriend of Alexis Meade. The following year, Gayheart starred in the Broadway comedy, Boeing-Boeing opposite Christine Baranski, Mark Rylance, Greg Germann, Paige Davis and Missi Pyle. She has a guest role on The Cleaner in 2009.

 personal life
For a time, Gayheart was engaged to director Brett Ratner. She and actor Eric Dane were married on October 29, 2004. Gayheart and Dane had their first child, a daughter, Billie Beatrice, on March 3, 2010. On December 28, 2011, their second daughter, Georgia Geraldine, was born.

Dane told Flaunt Magazine about how they met:

It's probably one of the least interesting stories in the world. It went basically like this: "You wanna go out?" "Yeah, sure." Ten months later, we were married.

 Leaked tape with former Miss Teen USA
On August 17, 2009, a nude video was posted on the website that showed former Miss Teen USA contestant Kari Ann Peniche with Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart.

 Vehicular manslaughter
On June 13, 2001, Gayheart struck and fatally injured nine-year-old Jorge Cruz, Jr. as he walked across a street in Los Angeles. On November 27, 2001, Gayheart pleaded no contest to vehicular manslaughter. She was sentenced to three years' probation, a one-year suspension of her license, a $2,800 fine and 750 hours of community service. Her attorney said that Gayheart was using a cell phone at the time of the impact.
Jorge Cruz Jr died the day after his injury.
