Biography by Jason Buchanan

The fact that redheaded stunner Angie Everhart, who set the pages of Sports Illustrated on fire in addition to numerous revealing print and film appearances, was commonly mistaken for a boy in her youth may come as more than a shock to some given that her name became synonymous with sex appeal in the mid-'90s.

Born to an engineer father and a homemaker mother in Akron, OH, in September of 1969, Everhart was the middle child of three siblings, graduating from Harvey S. Firestone High School (where she took on the role of the school's mascot) in 1987. Following a playful photo session with her mother and the subsequent submission of the results to a local modeling agency, Everhart was on a plane to Paris later that same year. By the end of the following year, the burgeoning model had graced the covers of such fashion mainstays as Elle and Glamour (for which she was the first-ever red-haired cover girl). Though a horseback riding accident in which she broke her back nearly put an end to her catwalk aspirations, the determined model was soon on her feet again against all odds. Making her film debut in 1993 with the Arnold Schwarzenegger action-comedy The Last Action Hero, Everhart has since appeared in such features as Tales From the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood (1996), Denial (1998), Camera, and Gunblast Vodka (both 2000). In the years to come, Everhart would appear in movies like Payback (2006) and Take Me Home Tonight (2011). An avid skydiver and a master of the art of airplane dog smuggling (she likes to keep her Maltese nearby on long flights), the beautiful actress/model was briefly engaged to Sylvester Stallone in 1995, married to Ashley Hamilton from late 1996 until early 1997, and was been rumored to have been involved with Prince Albert of Monaco.
