Maria Bello - Biography

 

Maria Elena Bello (born April 18, 1967) is an American actress best known for her appearances in the movies Coyote Ugly, The Jane Austen Book Club, Thank You for Smoking, and A History of Violence. For television she's best known for her role as Dr. Anna Del Amico on the NBC medical drama ER.

Bello was born in Norristown, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Kathy, a teacher and school nurse, and Joe Bello, a contractor. Her father is Italian American and her mother Polish American. She grew up in a working-class Roman Catholic family and graduated from Archbishop Carroll High School (Radnor, Pennsylvania). Later she attended Villanova University, majoring in political science. She intended to become a lawyer, but took an acting class during her senior year, just for fun. She was soon cast in small off-Broadway plays, such as The Killer Inside Me, Small Town Gals With Big Problems and Urban Planning. She later guest-starred on episodes of The Commish (1991), Nowhere Man (1995), Misery Loves Company (1995) Due South (1994), and ER (1997-98).

Bello's breakthrough came when the producers Kerry Lenhart and John J. Sakmar cast her as Mrs. Smith in the spy show Mr. & Mrs. Smith. The show was cancelled after just eight weeks on the air. Then came a guest stint on ER as the feisty pediatrician Dr. Anna Del Amico, in which she guest-starred in the final three episodes of the third season. Bello remained on the show for one season as a regular cast member, departing after the medical drama's 4th season. The actress went on into movies landing a role in Coyote Ugly. She has been nominated for the Golden Globe award twice: for Best Supporting Actress in The Cooler (2003) and for Best Actress in A History of Violence (2005). She also starred in The Jane Austen Book Club as Jocelyn.
In 2008 Bello starred in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor as Evy O'Connell, taking over from Rachel Weisz. Bello has stated that she has signed up for three more Mummy films.
In December 2008 Bello began developing a drama for HBO. Besides starring in the new series, Bello will also serve as an executive producer.
Bello's latest project, the 2009 Sundance hit The Yellow Handkerchief, will be released in theaters on February 26, 2010 by Samuel Goldwyn Films.

Bello has a son named Jackson Blue, born in 2001, with former long-time boyfriend Dan McDermott. Bello is also a Muay Thai practitioner. In July 2008 she became engaged to musician Bryn Mooser; a date for the wedding has not been announced. Bello and Carrie-Anne Moss of The Matrix are best friends, and they are godmother to each others first born children.

 

Maria Bello - Personal Quotes

 

"I don't think you understand what levels or what fears until you have a child of your own. I mean, I've never loved someone so much and I've never been so afraid in my life. And the truth is I would kill someone, whoever tried to hurt him. I would. I have no doubt about it."

"I think I take a film because I'm in the process of discovering something about myself."
