Birthplace: Wilmington, Delaware, USA

All her life, Elisabeth Shue consistently proved she was able to do the impossible, playing on all boys' soccer teams while growing up, and enrolling at Harvard University. The actress made her mark playing lovable goody-goodies in films such as the iconic underdog favorite, "The Karate Kid" (1984), "Adventures in Babysitting" (1987) and "Back to the Future 2" (1989) - all of which pigeon-holed her in girl-next-door roles for years. Perhaps Shue's most impressive feat was bouncing back after most critics and audiences had written her off as a 1980s relic, when she took on a role that was unlike anything else she had played before - a prostitute who falls in love with a depressed alcoholic - in "Leaving Las Vegas" (1995). Giving the performance of her life, Shue proved she was more than a clean-cut beauty who had grown up on camera. She was a true onscreen chameleon who would never go out of style, as long as she was given roles with substance and grit.
