Liliane Rudabet Gloria Elsveta Sobieski (born June 10, 1983 some sources say 1982), known professionally as Leelee Sobieski, is an American film and television actress. Sobieski achieved recognition in her mid-teens for her performance in the 1998 film Deep Impact and as the daughter of a costume store owner in Eyes Wide Shut (1999). She received an Emmy nomination for the 1999 TV movie Joan of Arc, and two Golden Globe nominations for Joan of Arc and the 2001 TV movie Uprising.
(On getting all of the facial and ear piercings for her role in My First Mister) I spent well over an hour in a tattoo and piercing parlour getting them all done. The guy who did them was amazing, although he was really surprised that I was having all of these piercings done, yet I'd never even had my earlobes pierced and wasn't having them done as well. He said he could do them for me too, but I told him that I couldn't, because Jennifer doesn't have her's done either – Although I was tempted. So he did my eyebrows first, then both sides of my nose, then my lip, then the ones in the tops of my ears, and finally my navel. I thought that my lip would be the most painful one, but it was actually the ones in my ears that hurt the most. I was really nervous before he started doing them, and it felt so strange to have someone sticking needles through parts of my body and feeling the jewelry there. But, after it was done, I kind of liked how it all looked and, as time went by, I got used to having it all there. After we'd finished filming, I took most of it out, although I did think that the nose stud and navel piercing looked kind of cool, so I kept them for a couple of weeks more before I took them out.
I just can't believe I'm a mom. It's weird! You look at your own mom differently. I realized, 'You changed all my diapers? You did that?' You really appreciate your mom.
(On giving up smoking) When I went to audition for 88 Minutes, I had worked with that director Jon before and I was smoking a cigarette and he said 'You really shouldn't smoke' and I said 'Give me the part and I'll quit'. And I didn't hear anything from him for a while and then he gave me the part, so I quit. But I didn't tell him 'til after we were done filming the movie that I had quit.
