Sastrowardoyo was born on March 16, 1982 in Jakarta, Indonesia to Ariawan Sastrowardoyo, an artist, and Dewi Parwati Sastrowardoyo (née Setyorini), a lecturer in a public university. Her paternal grandfather, Dr. Sumarsono Sastrowardoyo, was a physician, surgeon, and author. Her aunt, Dr. Aswin W. Sastrowardoyo (b. 1957), is a musician turned physician. She is also the grandniece of both Sunario, Indonesia's Minister of Foreign Affairs from 1953 to 1956; Dra. Sukanti Suryochondro, a former instructor in women's studies at the University of Indonesia; and Subagio Sastrowardoyo (1924–1995), a noted poet and literary critic. Her paternal great-grandfather, Sutejo Sastrowardoyo (1878–1967), traced the family's ancestry back to the 15th century Javanese. Sastrowardoyo's family name is derived from sastra (Sanskrit, "writings") and wardaya ("heart", hence both: "writings of the heart").
She attended Junior high school at the SMP Vincentius Otista Jakarta and high school at the SMATarakanita 1. Dian furthered her studies at the University of Indonesia where she had studied in Faculty of Law for a brief period of time before moving to the Faculty of Literature, where she obtained her Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and eventually graduated in July 2007. She did her post graduate degree at the School of Economics in the same institution, where she studied Finance Management as her major and got a Master of Management degree. She graduated cum laude in August 2014.
She began her career in 1996 as the cover girl of Gadis, a popular teen magazine in Indonesia. She starred as Daya in Pasir Berbisik, which was a critic favourite and won her many film awards for her role. She rose to prominence with her starring role as Cinta in the cult classic romance movie Ada Apa dengan Cinta?, which was a box office hit not only in Indonesia, but also neighbouring country Malaysia a year later in January 2003. Since then she has established herself as one of Indonesia's most bankable actresses, starring in films such as Banyu Biru, Ungu Violet and Belahan Jiwa. as well as international movies such as the Malaysian production Puteri Gunung Ledang.
Sastrowardoyo is also the goodwill ambassador for the MTV EXIT campaign, a multimedia initiative produced by MTV EXIT Foundation to raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking and modern slavery through live events, video content, and youth engagement, even hosting a special programme for the campaign in 2012 titled Enslaved, produced for thirteen different countries across Asia.
