Bijou Phillips is the daughter of musician (and The Mamas and The Papas founder) John Phillips and actress Genevieve Waite.
At the age of 13, she began modeling, becoming one of the youngest people to grace the covers of Interview and the Italian edition of Vogue. She also appeared in several controversial Calvin Klein ads. At age 17, she recorded her first album, I’d Rather Eat Glass, produced by The Cars’ Jerry Harrison.
While Ms. Phillips continues to pursue her music career, she has been working steadily in movies. After appearing in a small role in Allison Anders’ Sugar Town, she starred in James Toback’s Black and White and Larry Clark’s Bully. The latter performance led to her being named one of the “Shooting Stars of Tomorrow” by The Hollywood Reporter.
Her film credits also include Cameron Crowe’s award-winning Almost Famous, Christina Wayne’s Tart, Salome Breziner’s Fast Sofa, Marcus Adams’ Octane, and Barbara Kopple’s upcoming Havoc. She is currently at work on Rodger Grossman’s What We Do Is Secret.
