Actor, producer. Born on November 22, 1961, in Mill Valley, California. The granddaughter of celebrated author Ernest Hemingway, Mariel began her career in the shadow of her two famous relatives: her grandfather and her older sister, model/actress Margaux Hemingway.
In 1976, Mariel took a supporting role in her sister's first starring vehicle, Lipstick. Within a few years, Margaux was out of the movie-star race, but Mariel had only just begun. She next starred as Woody Allen's teenaged lover in Manhattan in 1979, a role that earned her an Oscar nomination. She followed this triumph with the risky roles of a lesbian athlete in Personal Best and the unfortunate Playboy centerfold Dorothy Stratten in 1983's Star 80. For the latter, she underwent highly publicized cosmetic surgery and breast enhancement. These headlines were followed by a controversial nude scene in an episode of the TV lawyer series Civil Wars.
Though her acting career continues, Mariel has followed other pursuits of late. She was the executive producer for The Suicide Club and has plans to direct her first film, A Moveable Feast, based on her grandfather's acclaimed novel, in 2009. In addition, she runs a yoga studio in Sun Valley.
Hemingway is married to filmmaker and restaurateur Steven Douglas Crisman, although she announced in 2008 that the couple was separated. They have two daughters, Dree and Langley.
