Early life and career
Romijn (pronounced "Ro-mane") was born in Berkeley, California,
to Jaap Romijn and Elizabeth Kuizenga, both of whom are of Dutch
ancestry. Her friends nicknamed her "the jolly blonde giant"
because her height is just under 6 feet
While studying music (voice) at the University of California, Santa
Cruz, she became involved with modeling and eventually moved to
Paris, France for more than two years. Among other jobs, Romijn
modeled for the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated and for Victoria's
Secret. She also was the host of MTV's House of Style from 1998
to 2000. Romijn is fluent in French and Portuguese.
In 2000's X-Men, Romijn had her first major movie role as "Mystique";
she returned to the role in 2003's sequel X2: X-Men United, and
again for X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). In these movies her costume
consisted of blue makeup and some strategically placed prosthetics
on her otherwise nude body. In X2: X-Men United she shows up in
a bar in one scene in her "normal" look, and also in X-Men:
The Last Stand.
She had her first leading role in Brian De Palma's Femme Fatale
(2002). She also has starred in movies such as Rollerball and Godsend.
She plays the leading role in Pepper Dennis, a TV series on The
WB. This series showcases Romijn's talents for comedy, singing,
modeling, drama, and adventure.
She married actor John Stamos on September 19, 1998. During her
marriage, she used the name Rebecca Romijn-Stamos in both her personal
and professional life. The couple announced their separation on
