Birthdate:January 4, 1986
Birthplace: Los Angeles, California

The charming Charlyne Yi crashed onto the acting scene with memorable bit parts in Knocked Up and Semi-Pro. Now the lovable, awkward performer steps in front of the camera and behind the scenes with her main role and screenwriting debut, Paper Heart.


America's Twee-Hearts

Paper Heart is a line-blurring love story that’s half fiction and half documentary. Charlyne traveled across the country talking to average people, professors and romance novelists all about their experiences with the Big L. She’d never fallen in love so she was skeptical that love even existed. During the course of the documentary filming—and this is the fictional part—Charlyne falls in love with her co-star Michael Cera. Charlyne and Michael are merely playing characters with their names—they never dated in real life, but their on-screen chemistry makes it easy to be fooled.


DIY Darling

Aside from acting, Charlyne is also one half of the indie pop duo The Glass Beef. Charlyne shares guitar and vocal duties with her buddy and fellow comedian, Paul Rust. The two sing silly songs about melting snowmen, birds that tweet and hating the one you’re with. Her solo project, Chandelier Teeth is similar. Both acts showcase strained vocals, crashing drums and a twee indie rock sound.


Charlyne Says:

  • "My agent got really mad, because I joked around about my age. Someone said, "Oh, you're adorable!" I was like, "Um, I'm 33. I was born in 1976." And now it's everywhere. I'm not really that age, but it's funny that people are writing about it."
  • "I had never seen frozen water before. I mean, I’d seen it like in my freezer. Ice cubes. But not frozen lakes, streams, or rivers. It was pretty mind blowing. I like the trees. Everything seems so much cleaner in Canada." ~on Toronto, Ontario where she filmed Paper Heart
