Liv Tyler – Maxim Photoshoot. Liv Tyler (born Liv Rundgren, on July 1, 1977 at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, New York) is an American actress best known for her roles of Grace Stamper in Armageddon and Arwen in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
After starting a career as a model (with a height of 5′ 10″), Liv Tyler quickly moved into acting. Liv Tyler first became known to TV audiences when Liv Tyler starred alongside Alicia Silverstone in the Aerosmith music video “Crazy” in 1993. Later, Liv Tyler was cast almost simultaneously for Silent Fall and Heavy; the filming of Heavy was delayed until Liv Tyler became available. By the age of 20, Liv Tyler had already starred in several successful movies, including Stealing Beauty, That Thing You Do! and Inventing the Abbotts.
Although it was her appearance in Armageddon (which was released on her 21st birthday, and included the song “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by her father’s band) that made her known to a very wide public, Liv Tyler has proven herself in more sophisticated acting challenges such as Onegin (based on the 19th century Russian novel by Alexander Pushkin), in which Liv Tyler convincingly portrayed the character of Tatyana Larina, and two movies directed by Robert Altman: Cookie’s Fortune and Dr. T & the Women. Her most successful role came in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, in which Liv Tyler played Arwen Undómiel. In 2007 Liv Tyler was chosen to star alongside Edward Norton in the upcoming Incredible Hulk trilogy.
Liv Tyler was chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World in 1997. Liv Tyler was also voted the 6th Sexiest Female Movie Star in the Australian Empire Magazine in September 2002, and #2 in TheAge.com’s Top 100: Natural Beauties of all time in 2004.
