Beverly D'Angelo (born November 15, 1951) is an American singer and actress, perhaps best known for her roles as Ellen Griswold in the "National Lampoon's Vacation" film series, Patsy Cline in "Coal Miner's Daughter", and Doris Vinyard in "American History X".

Biography

Early life

D'Angelo was born in Columbus, Ohio, the daughter of Priscilla (née Smith), a violinist, and Gene D'Angelo, a bass player and television station manager. [ [http://www.filmreference.com/film/33/Beverly-D-Angelo.html Beverly D'Angelo Biography (1953?-) ] ] She is of part Italian descent. [ [http://www.niaf.org/milestones/year_1960.asp NIAF MileStones ] ] Her maternal grandfather, Howard Dwight Smith, was the architect who designed iconic Ohio Stadium, also known as "the Horseshoe" at The Ohio State University.

Career

D'Angelo began work in the theatre, appearing on Broadway in 1976 in "Rockabye Hamlet" (also known as "Kronborg: 1582") a musical based on Shakespeare's "Hamlet". Although the production was a failure, running less than a month, D'Angelo's performance as Ophelia attracted positive attention.

After gaining minor roles in movies including "Annie Hall", D'Angelo had a string of hit movies in the late 1970s, appearing in "Every Which Way But Loose", "Hair". Her biggest break came with Chevy Chase in the 1983 "National Lampoon's Vacation". Her role as Ellen Griswold was reprised in three "Vacation" sequels from 1985 through 1997. In 1992, she had a guest appearance in the third season of "The Simpsons" as Lurleen Lumpkin, a beautiful, Southern country singer and waitress, in "Colonel Homer", and sixteen years later in 2008, she appeared in the nineteenth season - as the same character - in the episode "Papa Don't Leech".

She has a recurring role on "" as defense attorney Rebecca Balthus.

In 2006, she starred in the independent cult hit "". She can now be seen on the hit HBO series "Entourage", playing the role of the alpha-female Barbara "Babs" Miller.

In 2008, D'Angelo had a role in the film "Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay" as Sally. She also played the housemother in the film "The House Bunny" and currently wrapped a Tony Kaye film "Black Water Transit" and David O Russell film "Nailed" playing Jessica Biel's mother.

Personal life

After the end of her romance with film director Miloš Forman, in 1981, D'Angelo married Lorenzo Salviati, an economics student who also was an Italian duke; [ [http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,314914,00.html THE MYSTERY OF BEVERLY D'ANGELO | Beverly D'Angelo | Movie News | Movies | Entertainment Weekly ] ] half-Polish, he is a descendant of Lorenzo de Medici. Separated in 1983, D'Angelo and Salviati finally divorced in 1995.

From 1985 until 1991, D'Angelo, although still married to the Duke, lived with Irish director Neil Jordan. During this time she had a small role in his 1988 comedy "High Spirits", as well as the operatic film "Aria" (1987) in which she played Gilda in the "Rigoletto" scene (music by Verdi). Later she began a relationship with Anton Furst, an Academy award-winning production designer, who committed suicide in 1991 after they broke up.

In 1996, D'Angelo became involved with Al Pacino. She had previously met him in 1988 when auditioning for the film, "Sea of Love". They dated and lived together from 1996-2003. They are the parents of twins Olivia and Anton, who were born in 2001. The couple broke up two years after the children's birth, and they currently share custody. Chevy Chase states on the "National Lampoon's European Vacation" DVD commentary that he thinks of himself almost as a godfather to her twins (possibly as a light-hearted homage to Al Pacino).
