Bijou Phillips Introduction
Bijou was emancipated from her parents at the age of 14, and given over to the loving care of the modeling industry. She was the youngest girl to ever grace the cover of Vogue, and appeared in one of Calvin Klein’s most controversial ad campaigns. She is also a singer. And an actress. But more than anything, she’s really just a socialite from a rich family who started partying really young.
Bijou Phillips Life Story
While most girls are putting pictures of kittens on their myspace profile, Phillips attended the Sierra Tucson rehab center in Arizona at the age of fourteen. She claimed that this was not because she was addicted to drugs but to get out of trouble for running up a large credit card bill in her father's name.
At the age of 17, she signed a record deal with Almo Sounds. Her debut album, released in 1999, was titled I'd Rather Eat Glass, a sentiment that expressed her feelings about her former profession. She toured with the Lilith Fair music festival in 1999. As of 2007, Phillips is working on a second album.
In 1999, Phillips had a brief cameo in the film Sugar Town, playing a girl wanting an autograph. That same year, Phillips appeared in Black and White as Charlie. In 2000, she played Estrella Starr in Almost Famous. 2001 saw Phillips get bigger parts, including a supporting role in Bully and starring roles in Tart and Fast Sofa.
Later film appearances include Octane (2003), The Door in the Floor (2004), Havoc (2005), What We Do Is Secret (2007), Hostel: Part II (2007) (for which she was nominated for Scream Queen in the 2007 Scream Awards), and Choke (2008). Completed but not yet released is her starring role in Dark Streets (2008), and she's also reported to be starring in a remake of the 1974 film, It's Alive (2008).
Her godfather was Andy Warhol.
