Davis, second of three children, was born in Englewood, New Jersey, the daughter of Joan, a librarian, and William Davis, an engineer. Davis has described her mother as a "great storyteller" who would take Davis and her siblings to museums or to "something cultural" every Sunday after church.

Hope Davis Career

Davis majored in cognitive science at Vassar College, but then became an actress in independent films such as The Daytrippers (1995) and Next Stop Wonderland (1998). These led her to roles in Hollywood films such as the thriller Arlington Road (1999), and About Schmidt (2002). In 2003, she starred opposite Paul Giamatti in the movie adaptation of the Harvey Pekar comic American Splendor as the comic book version of Pekar's real-life wife, Joyce Brabner. For this role, Davis won the New York Film Critics Circle award and was nominated for the Golden Globe.

She has also worked on the stage, including a lead role in the New York premiere of Rebecca Gilman's Spinning into Butter in 2000.

In April 2005, Davis was the lead role in an audio play called "Hope Leaves the Theater", written and directed by Charlie Kaufman. This was segment of the sound-only production Theater of the New Ear, which debuted at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY. The title actually refers to Hope Davis's character "leaving the theater."
