Piper Perabo Introduction
Though actress Piper Perabo was born on Halloween, the only thing scary about her is how painfully beautiful she is. She may not be as huge a star yet as people predicted a few years ago but she’s loveable all the same.
Piper Perabo Life Story
Piper is another in a long line of great things coming from Texas, but she grew up in Toms River, N.J., where her father is a professor of poetry and her mother is a physical therapist. Her all American good looks come from diverse origins as her father is Portuguese and her mother is Norweigan. She graduated from Toms River North High School. Also, she graduated summa cum laude from Ohio University where she majored in Theater Arts.
Not getting the memo that your twenties are supposed to be spent slaving in dead-end office jobs, Piper came to national attention after starring in Coyote Ugly (Tyra Banks, Maria Bello). Men around the world prayed for something that combined Showgirls and Cheers. Unfortunately, it wound up being like if Flashdance (Jennifer Beals) as written by an 11 year old girl. Quality aside, the movie showed that Piper was a lovely girl with untapped talent.
Since then, she’s left the world of dancing bartender movies behind and starred in some higher quality fare. She received rave reviews for Lost and Delirious Mischa Barton where she played a boarding school student having a passionate lesbian love affair with her friend. The film is a wonderful examination of teen love and homophobia, but many will rent it for its revealing love scenes between itty-bitty Piper and stacked [[Jessica Paré]].
In 2008 Piper was caught by paparazzi at an LA women-only bar with longtime companion Anjelah Johnson. Piper who was apparently very drunk, was photographed passionately kissing Johnson, and then proceeded to tell photographers that Anjelah, "is my partner, my lover, my soul mate." Johnson quickly hustled Piper into a waiting limo and the next day publicists for both women issued press reports indicating that the whole thing was a "silly joke at the expense of the paparazzi." However, the two women continue to be seen together almost exclusively, and according to reports frequently stay at the others home.
In 2010, Piper debuted as a bubbly CIA agent on the USA network's dramedy Covert Affairs, which achieved top summertime cable ratings and was quickly renewed for another season. The role earned her a Golden Globe nomination.
