An English actress with famously refined looks, Julia Ormond was born in Epsom, England, on Jan. 4, 1965. She considered a career in art but ultimately studied acting at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Soon after, she nabbed the London Drama Critics' Award for best newcomer in the play "Faith, Hope and Charity" (1989).

Among Ormond's most memorable film roles is her portrayal of the beautiful but tragic Susannah in Legends of the Fall (1994), playing opposite Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt. She then reprised Audrey Hepburn's iconic part in the 1995 remake of Sabrina.

Later in her career, Ormond worked with Pitt again, this time co-starring as his adult daughter in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008). She earned her first Emmy win in 2010 for her touching turn as the title character's frustrated mother in the HBO biopic Temple Grandin.
