Jacinda Barrett Biography
- Although Jacinda Barrett was born in Australia, her convincing accent has paved the way for numerous acting roles in the USA. Barrett was first introduced to American audiences via MTVs "The Real World" (1992) during its fourth season which was set in London. Jacinda Barrett received her first break on the big screen in Human Stain, directed by Oscar winner Robert Benton, alongside Anthony Hopkins and Nicole Kidman for which she received critical praise. Soon after she starred in Ladder 49, a movie that honored her firefighter father, where she worked with Joaquin Phoenix and John Travolta. The movie spanned 10 years in the life of a Baltimore firefighting family. Soon after, she was in love with Renee Zellwegers Bridget in Bridget Jones, The Edge of Reason. She also starred in the action disaster movie, Poseidon directed by Wolfgang Peterson and the comedy, School for Scoundrels with Billy Bob Thornton directed by Todd Phillips. She again received critical praise for her challenging role in the Last Kiss. A.O. Scott said of her performance, "Ms. Barrett is a glowing, lovely presence, giving full voice to the rage, humiliation and hurt." Shauna Lyon in the New Yorker writes, "Jacinda Barrett steals the show as Michaels beautiful, reasonable life partner, offering a volatile, realistic portrayal of a woman scorned." Jacinda was directed by Mira Nair in the adaptation of Jumpha Lahiris Pulitzer Prize Winning novel, The Namesake and starred alongside her husband, in Middle Men a tale of the founding of the Internet porn industry. She has starred in multiple TV series, most recently alongside Anthony Edwards in Zero Hour. Even though Jacinda grew up in Brisbane, her first Australian role was headlining Matching Jack, as she left home at 17 to work and travel the world. She is married to Gabriel Macht and they have one daughter together. She has been named one of People Magazines 50 Most Beautiful People.
