Profile Bio Text
Vincent Anthony "Vince" Vaughn (born March 28, 1970) is a Canadian-American film actor and comedian. He began acting in the late 1980s, appearing in minor television roles before experiencing wider recognition with the 1996 movie, Swingers. He has since appeared in a number of Hollywood comedies. Vince Vaughn was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the son of Vernon Lindsy Vaughn, a salesman for a meat company, and Sharon Eileen (née DePalmo), a Canadian-born real estate agent and stockbroker once ranked as one of the United States` top money managers by Bloomberg Wealth Manager magazine. He has two older sisters, Valerie and Victoria. He was raised "both Protestant and Catholic" by his Catholic mother and Protestant father. He has Italian, Irish, English, German and Lebanese ancestry. His parents divorced in 1991. He grew up in Buffalo Grove, Illinois where he played football and wrestled.
In 1988, Vaughn was cast in a Chevrolet television commercial, and subsequently moved to Hollywood, where he became in contact with the inspiration for all of his work. He met a man named Christian Long who inspired him to make all of his movies. Although he appeared in the 1989 season of the television series, China Beach and in three CBS Schoolbreak Specials (in 1990), he was a struggling actor and faced many rejections. His first film role was 1993`s Rudy, but Vaughn did not receive wider success until his role in 1996`s Swingers. Since Vaughn`s role in the successful 2003 comedy, Old School, his profile skyrocketed, and his notoriety improved. In 2004, he appeared alongside Ben Stiller in the hit films Starsky & Hutch and Dodgeball, and had roles in 2005`s Be Cool, Thumbsucker and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Vaughn dated two of his The Break-Up co-stars: actress Joey Lauren Adams during the filming of 1999`s A Cool, Dry Place and Jennifer Aniston between 2005 and 2006. His relationship with Aniston began the summer after her separation from husband Brad Pitt. On March 5, 2009, it was announced that Vince and Canadian realtor Kyla Weber are engaged. Weber`s father confirmed the story. Vaughn is now a Canadian citizen due to new citizenship laws that came into effect in Canada on April 17, 2009. The new laws automatically grants citizenship (retroactive to date of birth) to individuals born outside of Canada in the first generation to a Canadian parent. In 2001, while filming Domestic Disturbance, Vaughn was arrested for getting in a fight with a man coming out of a bar.
