Date of Birth : Nov 6th 1972
This tall (5′ 10″) blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty was a natural for modeling, and has posed for Sports Illustrated, Christian Dior, Victoria’s Secret, to name but a few. Rebecca first met John Stamos in 1994, at a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and had her first date with him in Disneyland. They married in September 1998, and currently reside in Beverly Hills.
Rebecca’s favorite foods are filet mignon, tuna sashimi, and Haagen-Dazs Cappuccino-Commotion. But to keep her weight at a svelte 130 lbs, she stays fit with a rigorous stretching and strengthening routine (her firm body tone is evident when compared to photos of her earlier modeling, where she was very slim but not toned).
Rebecca’s most famous movie role so far was as the shape-shifting “Mystique” in X-Men (2000), based on the long-running comic book series about teenage mutant superheroes (that Jack Kirby started way back in 1961). To play Mystique, every day Rebecca had to start out nude, and then 2 female makeup artists would apply blue body paint, and other stick-on parts, for 8 hours a day. Rebecca told Jay Leno on the “Tonight Show” that things like tissue paper would stick to her hips; and one day the long hours of wearing sticky paint makeup made her so upset, that the director told her to “have a glass of white wine” and relax. Notwithstanding those technical difficulties, “X-Men” was a box-office bonanza, and Rebecca’s future in films was assured.
On September 19, 2005, Rebecca announced her engagement to actor Jerry O’Connell. The date of the announcement was controversial, as it would have been her seventh anniversary with Stamos, if not for their divorce.
