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 Takes On Hollywood

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.

Liv Tyler's Big Break

Liv Tyler starred as Ben Affleck's love in the Bruce Willis action hit Armageddon. Her dad, Steven Tyler got in on the flick when Aerosmith contributed the love theme.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
