Mariel Hemingway (born Mariel Hadley Hemingway November 22, 1961) is an American actress and author. She began acting at age 16 in a breakout role in Lipstick and is best known for her roles in Manhattan (for which she received an Oscar nomination), Star 80, and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.
She has starred in and co-produced videos about yoga and holistic living. She published a memoir in 2002.
Hemingway was born in Mill Valley, California, the third daughter of Byra Louise (née Whittlesey) Hemingway and Jack Hemingway, a writer. Her sisters are Joan Hemingway (born 1950) and Margaux Hemingway (born 1954). Margaux, who became an actress and model, died of a barbiturate overdose in 1996 at age 42.
Her paternal grandparents were Hadley Richardson and Nobel Prize-laureate novelist Ernest Hemingway (who committed suicide several months before she was born). She was named after the Cuban port of Mariel—her father and grandfather visited the village regularly to go fishing. Her middle name is from her paternal grandmother.
Hemingway grew up primarily in Ketchum, Idaho, where her father lived, and where her paternal grandfather had spent time as a sportsman and writer. She also spent part of her adolescence in Los Angeles and New York City.
Hemingway's first role was with her sister Margaux in the film Lipstick (1976). The movie was not considered especially good, but she received notice for her acting and was nominated as "Best Newcomer" for the Golden Globes Award that year.
Hemingway's most famous role was in Woody Allen's Manhattan (1979), a romantic comedy in which she plays Tracy, a high school student and Allen's lover. Just 16 during filming (within the film she is said to be 17), she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
In Personal Best (1982), she played a bisexual track and field athlete in a film noted for some explicit (by mainstream standards) lesbian love scenes. In connection with Personal Best, she appeared in a pictorial in the April 1982 issue of Playboy and was on the cover.
She starred as Dorothy Stratten in Star 80 (1983), a film about the Playboy model's life and murder. Reports circulated for years that Hemingway had had her breasts enlarged to play the role of Stratten, but during a 2007 appearance on the late-night talk and variety show, Fashionably Late with Stacy London, she said she had had the surgery before Star 80. Her breast implants were removed years later after they had ruptured.
Hemingway was also featured in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) as Lacy Warfield. Subsequently released additional footage showed an expansion of her role. It was released in a very rough edit with unfinished visual effects in a November 2006 deluxe edition DVD and as part of The Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition. She also co-starred in the 1991–93 ABC series Civil Wars.
Hemingway has played a lesbian or bisexual woman in several films and television shows, including, Personal Best, The Sex Monster, In Her Line of Fire, and episodes of the TV series "Roseanne" ("Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and "December Bride") and Crossing Jordan. Hemingway, however, is not gay. She has said she formed a "big connection with the gay-and-lesbian community" after Personal Best and enjoys taking roles in "cutting-edge" productions.
Hemingway has a perfume, "Mariel", by H2O+.
Hemingway worked on the documentary film Running from Crazy, directed by Barbara Kopple and produced by the Oprah Winfrey Network chronicling the Hemingway family's history of suicide, substance abuse and mental illness, shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 2013. In October 2013, Hemingway received a humanitarian award from the San Diego Film Festival for her role in the documentary.
In December 2008, Hemingway announced via her web site's blog that she had separated earlier in the year from her husband Stephen Crisman, to whom she had been married since December 9, 1984. She and Crisman had two daughters together, model Dree Crisman (born 1987) and Langley Crisman (born 1989).
As of early 2011, Hemingway has been romantically linked with former stuntman Bobby Williams, with whom she has co-authored several self-help books.
