Liv Tyler - The Early Years

Liv Tyler was raised as Liv Rundgren by her mom Bebe Buell and rock artist Todd Rundgren. She learned later in her life that her biological father was actually Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. When Liv was 14 she moved with her mom from Portland, Maine to New York City where she began modeling when she was 15. She quickly tired of modeling and decided to give acting a shot.

Liv Tyler started her career with a starring role in her dad's music video Crazy with Alicia Silverstone. Her big screen break came easily when she landed a leading role in 1995's Empire Records. From there she snagged roles in Silent Fall (1995), Stealing Beauty (1996) and Inventing the Abbotts (1997.) Liv Tyler got her fair share of press when she dated (her co-star from Inventing the Abbotts) actor Joaquin Phoenix for almost three years.
