About Tara Reid
It’s no secret that Tara speaks sex, whether she’s modeling for Playboy or portraying a scantily dressed coed in American Pie or The Big Lebowski. She regrettably frequently appears on tabloid pages rather than marquees. Tara Reid is notorious for her botched plastic surgery procedures and off-camera attention, but this party queen became the talk of the town after starring roles in The Big Lebowski and American Pie.
Keeping Up With Buffy
Tara Tom and Donna Reid, operators of a daycare company, gave birth to Donna Reid in Wyckoff, New Jersey. By the time she was three, she was dancing in recitals, and an area talent agent noticed her impromptu performance in a mall. Reid made her film debut at the age of 11 in A Return to Salem’s Lot after appearing in advertisements for McDonald’s and Crayola. She got a scholarship at the Professional Children’s School in Manhattan, where Sarah Michelle Gellar attended, but she took a break from acting after that.
Her Piece Of The Pie
Reid graduated in 1994 and soon after, she was cast in episodes of Saved by the Bell: The New Class and All My Children. When she was paired with Jeff Bridges in the cult classic The Big Lebowski in 1998, she got her big break.
Reid garnered a lot of attention for her depiction as Bunny the trophy wife, and soon after, she was cast in the well-liked teen films Cruel Intentions and Urban Legend.
In 1999, Reid became a household name when she played the virginal Vicky in the obscenely successful film American Pie. The movie rapidly inspired a sequel, but Reid’s subsequent projects did not fare quite as well.
Reid had some Razzie nominations for My Boss’s Daughter and Alone in the Dark, but Josie and the Pussycats and Doctor T. & the Women were both box office duds.
In 2003, Reid made a comeback on television when she won a recurring part on the hit sitcom Scrubs. Taradise, the travel show she hosted for E! in 2005, did nothing to improve Reid’s already failing reputation and was cancelled after less than a season.
She then had several straight-to-video disappointments, although she eventually made a comeback to the big screen in The Fields and the Pie franchise with American Reunion.
Going Wild With Tara
Pie elevated Reid to the top of the young Hollywood food chain after which she developed the reputation of a wild child that has received considerably more media attention than her filmography. She was notorious for baring everything on the red carpet, and after the media made a big deal out of her poor plastic surgery, she admitted to major damage caused by subpar liposuction and botched breast implants to US Weekly in 2006.
She eventually underwent another round of surgery for reconstruction, but the tabloids have been attentively watching her body ever since. In fact, in January 2010, she even bared everything for Playboy. Of course, you look fantastic by that point.
Reid’s drinking routines have also regularly been covered by the media. She solidified her reputation as a Hollywood bad girl with drunken paparazzi photographs and her time on Taradise, and in 2008, she entered treatment as a result of widely reported falls in Bali and Las Vegas. Reid finished her treatment and has since been concentrating on improving her look.
MTV anchor Carson Daly and Reid started dating in 2000, but their relationship ended after a brief engagement in 2001. Throughout the 2000s, she was linked to J.C. Chasez, Danish entrepreneur Michael Lillelund, and NFL quarterback Kyle Boller, but she continued to insist that Daly was the love of her life and that if she had married him, her heavy partying would have stopped much sooner. When her business partner Michael Axtmann proposed to her in 2010, Reid had a second opportunity at stability. However, they both called off their engagement a few months later, leaving Reid back on the singles scene.
“I’ve done a lot of serious roles, but they’re, like, independent, so it’s harder for them to come out. The big ones have been comedies, but I would love to get a big drama to let people see the other side of me, that I am a serious actress.”
