Rebecca Romijn

Rebecca Alie Romijn was born in Berkeley, Alameda County, California and she is an American actress and former fashion model. She is best known for her role as Mystique in the X-Men films and Joan from The Punisher(2004), both from Marvel Comics. She also had a recurring role as Alexis Meade on the television series Ugly Betty (2006). During her marriage to actor John Stamos, she was often credited as Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and legally still uses this name. Romijn began dating actor John Stamos in 1994, after they met at a Victoria's Secret fashion show in which she was modeling. Romijn and Stamos became engaged on Christmas Eve 1997, and they married on September 19, 1998 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. During the marriage, she used the name Rebecca Romijn-Stamos in both her personal and professional life. The couple announced their separation in April 2004. Stamos filed for divorce in August 2004, and it became final on March 1, 2005. Romijn subsequently resumed using only her maiden name, but revealed in an August 2013 interview on Conan that she had never legally changed her name back from Romijn-Stamos after a Conan staff member noticed "Romijn-Stamos" on her driver's license.

In 2004, Romijn started dating actor Jerry O'Connell. They became engaged in September 2005, and married at their home in Calabasas, California on July 14, 2007. Romijn and O'Connell have twin daughters, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, born on December 28, 2008. Dolly is for singer Dolly Parton's first name and Charlie is for O'Connell's brother. Romijn was asked by Elle magazine in April 2002 whether making Femme Fatale (2002) had given her any new ideas about her sexuality. She said, "You know, in my early twenties I wondered if I was interested in women and so I kind of, well ... did my homework. And it turns out I'm pretty straight."
