Oscar Actors: Hemingway, Mariel

Born on Nov. 22, 1961, in Ketchum, Idaho, Mariel Hemingway is one of the youngest Oscar nominees in the Academy's history.

A granddaughter of famed novelist Ernest Hemingway, Mariel made her screen debut at 15, and was nominated for an Oscar as best supporting actress for her second feature, Woody Allen's “Manhattan,” in 1979, in which she played Woody's girlfriend.

She was the talk of Tinseltown's gossips when she ag reed to breast augmentation before portraying Playboy centerfold Dorothy Stratten in Bob Fosse's “Star 80.”

In 1991, she gained exposure playing a sexy divorce lawyer in TV's 'Civil Wars.' In one controversial episode, she appeared nude, though the scene was more the suggestion of nudity than an explicit portrayal.

Her older sister, Margaux Hemingway, a former model, also played leads in a number of films.
