Hallie Meyers-Shyer (born July 26, 1987) is an American film actress, director and writer.
She has appeared in six of her parents' films: Father of the Bride, I Love Trouble, Father of the Bride Part II, The Parent Trap, What Women Want, and The Affair of the Necklace. Her older sister Annie has also made film appearances; the twin characters in The Parent Trap were named after Hallie and Annie.
Meyers-Shyer attended high school at Crossroads School. She originally enrolled at the University of Southern California to study screenwriting, but transferred to The New School where she graduated with a degree in literature. She made her screenwriting and directorial debut with the film Home Again (2017), which stars Reese Witherspoon and was released in September.
In 2012, it was announced that Meyers-Shyer's script The Chelsea would be made into a film starring Felicity Jones and directed by Nancy Meyers. In 2017, Meyers said her daughter's project ran into casting problems, and Meyers-Shyer "just moved on from it."
