Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Amis first worked as a Ford model before she began acting in the 1980s. She made her feature film debut in the 1985 comedy film Fandango, opposite Kevin Costner. Following Fandango, Amis next had roles in Rocket Gibraltar (1988), Where the Heart Is (1990), and Rich in Love (1993). In 1993, she appeared as Josephine "Jo" Monaghan in The Ballad of Little Jo. Amis later appeared in Blown Away (1994), The Usual Suspects (1995) and the blockbuster Titanic (1997) in which she played Lizzy Calvert, the granddaughter of Rose DeWitt Bukater (Gloria Stuart). That same year, she starred opposite Tom Selleck in the western Last Stand at Saber River and acted in the cult-classic Nadja. Amis retired from acting after her last screen appearance in the 1999 film, Judgment Day
In 2005, Amis co-founded MUSE Elementary, a Reggio-inspired, independent, non-profit school in the Topanga, California area of Los Angeles, with her sister, Rebecca Amis. MUSE School CA’s mission is to inspire and prepare young people to live consciously with themselves, one another and the planet, from early childhood through high school. MUSE will be the first school in the country to have a plant-based lunch program, with their “One Meal a Day for the Planet” (OMD) initiative, in Fall 2015.
In 2009, Amis Cameron founded Red Carpet Green Dress, a global initiative showcasing sustainable fashion on the red carpet at the Oscars. In 2014, for the fifth anniversary of the founding of Red Carpet Green Dress, Olga Kurylenko wore a custom sustainable fashion gown. The gown was designed by Alice Elia, a student at ESMOD. whilst Kellan Lutz marked the introduction of a menswear category, wearing a tuxedo designed by Jomnarn Dul of Ekocycle made from recycled plastic. Other actors to participate in the project include Naomie Harris and Missi Pyle. Since its inception in 2009, the winning designs have been worn by celebrities, graced the Academy Awards and been featured extensively in the international press—shining the light on the devastating impact of the fashion industry on the environment.
Since June 4, 2000, Amis has been married to film director James Cameron, whom she met while filming Titanic. Amis and Cameron have three children: Claire (April 4, 2001), Quinn (September 9, 2003) and Elizabeth Rose (December 29, 2006). She also has a son, Jasper (April 30, 1990), with first husband, Sam Robards.
