Biography

Actress, producer, environmental activist, and all-around Hollywood socialite Trudie Styler grew up amid working-class surroundings, in Stoke Prior, England, then rode to fame on the heels of her relationship with British rocker Sting (aka Gordon Sumner). Their courtship blossomed in the early '80s (the two met in 1979), then sparked a 1992 marriage (the Police frontman's second) and four children. Beginning in 1984, Styler commenced supporting roles in films including Fair Game (1988), The Grotesque (1995), Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (2002), and Alpha Male (2005); she took her premier bow as a producer circa 1994, and her production resumé includes such gems as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006). Styler is also known for her extensive list of Hollywood friendships and connections; a party maven if ever there were one, she fetes constantly (and extravagantly), typically in support of various left-wing causes, such as the Rainforest Foundation, which she and Sting co-founded in 1987. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
