American actress Ellen Barkin has one of those rare and uniquely beautiful faces that is unusual, yet remarkably pretty, making her stand out above the other pretty faces in Hollywood. She is known for her role as Sue Ann in the drama movie Tender Mercies (1983), co-starring with Robert Duvall and Wilford Brimley. She is also known for her role as Helen Kruger in the hit movie Sea of Love (1989), co-starring with Al Pacino.
Ellen's film career has been successful as she has appeared in scores of hit films and television series. Barkin starred in the popular film Switch (1991) about a male chauvinist who embodies the term pig that gets paid back after his ex-girlfriends pull together and murder him for his lying and cheating. He is reincarnated as a woman in this hilariously funny comedy.
Ellen also co-starred with Gabriel Byrne in the family adventure film Into the West (1992) as Kathleen, and also starred along with Jeff Bridges in the action western Wild Bill (1995) in the role of Calamity Jane.
Her most recent role has been as Jane Forrest in recurring episodes of the TV series The New Normal (2012-13).
