Mira Sorvino Bio

Showtimes > Mira Sorvino Bio


Date Of Birth: September 28, 1967

"Someone asked me, 'What advice would you give someone who wants to be famous?'" Sorvino says about an encounter she had in 1997. "I said, 'Have a deeper ambition than that!' Wanting to be famous is a very weird end goal."

Born in Tenafly, New Jersey, Sorvino's father is the very talented actor Paul Sorvino (Nixon). He did not exactly encourage his Harvard-educated daughter to follow in his footsteps, but she was not to be denied.

As for the fame issue, she now sees it slightly differently, especially after it came her way following her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Mighty Aphrodite and her much-publicized relationship with Quentin Tarantino: "I started seeing the value of fame in the past few years because I would see other people getting parts I was dying to get. I was actually told: 'Yours was the best audition, but it's not about that. You're not getting the part.'"
