Born on April 14, 1977, In New York City, New York, Sarah Michelle Gellar was an only child and was raised by her mother Rosellen. Her mom, who is a teacher, divorced Sarah's father in 1984.

Sarah's career in show business began in 1981, when she was only four years old. As a little tyke, Sarah was discovered by an agent while dining at a local eatery. Only three weeks after the initial chance meeting, Sarah was cast in her first film entitled An Invasion of Privacy.

And acting wasn't Sarah's only passion; she attended the Children's Professional School in New York and graduated two years early with a 4.0 GPA.

Sarah quickly became a veteran in the entertainment industry, having done over 100 television commercials and starring in many made-for-TV and big screen films. Although she began her career as a regular hostess on the talk show, Girl Talk, Sarah quickly began turning up in movies.

In the 1980s, Sarah appeared in the films The Widow Claire at the Circle in the Square with co-stars Matthew Broderick and Eric Stolz, and Crossbow. Soon after that, she began making appearances on television shows such as Spenser: For Hire, Love, Sidney, The David Letterman Show and Regis and Kathie Lee.

The role that really cast Sarah into the limelight was her portrayal of a young Jackie Kennedy in the NBC miniseries A Woman Named Jackie. But it was when she assumed the role of the teenage brat Kendall Hart, daughter of Erica Kane in the hit soap opera All My Children, that Sarah began building a loyal fan base. In 1994, Sarah was graced with an Emmy Award for her convincing portrayal of Erica's vengeful daughter.

Fortunately for her, in 1996, Sarah was picked to be the star of a new series called Buffy the Vampire Slayer, based on the movie by the same name. Needless to say, the show was an instant hit and Sarah began receiving boatloads of movie scripts. The following season, the show was picked up for another 22 episodes, which cemented Sarah's success as an actress, albeit in an unbelievable role.

In the midst of her hit television show, Sarah took the time to make such hit movies as I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2 and Cruel Intentions.

Currently living in Los Angeles and dating fellow teen sensation Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah is living the high life and it's quite evident that we will be seeing more of this beauty for years to come. This 5'3" actress may not reach the height of a supermodel, but she's standing tall nevertheless


"Just because you donate sperm does not make you a father. I don't have a father. I would never give him the credit or acknowledge him as my father."

"My biggest complaint is school when it's Send-the-roses day, somebody's always left out. I always got roses, but I would give them to someone who hadn't gotten any."

"I'm always the one who gets killed. And I want it to be really gory. Body parts all over the place. Mangled! "

"How can women be as thin as we are? We have personal trainers to work us out. We have specially prepared meals."

"I got a computer and I'm learning how to use it. I collect antique books, so I used it to get my copy of 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses,' and I use it for travel, to look up customs. I went to Fiji, and I looked up all this stuff before I went, like 'Don't wear a hat in someone's house because it's rude, and don't wear shoes.' You've got to think there's something better I can do with my time than log on to the Internet and say, 'Ooo, let's find out about me!' I think that would frighten me a little bit."

"One of the greatest gifts my job has given me is that my mother, who gave up her entire life for me, doesn't have to work any more. I'm now in a position to repay her for her devotion."

[on Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon]: "They're unbelievable. They're an inspiration to young love."

[on job pressures] "There's so much pressure on all of us right now. On Katie [Holmes], on James [Van Der Beek], and myself, to do these movies, and do as much as you can because there is the slight feeling that one day your phone will stop ringing. It's not about the craft, per se. It's so easy to fall for it all because people remind you constantly that as fast as it comes, it can go. And I think there is this sort of paranoia, this need to keep working. And I know that I felt it, and for the first three years of the show, I never had more than a week off, except for Christmas. That was it."

"It makes me think of women who don't shave their legs." - on what the word "feminist" means

[On her kissing scene with Selma Blair in Cruel Intentions (1999)]: "It was a great kiss. It even had a saliva trail."

"I am militant about drugs. You want to do 'em? You're out of my life."

[on posing nude] "Right now I can't picture posing, but I don't believe in saying never... There might be a time when I got pregnant and felt really beautiful and wanted to have a nude picture."

"I would go to college to be a journalist. I always wanted to write for Time or Newsweek." (On what she would do if she wasn't acting.)

"You'll never know what you're capable of if you don't try."

"I don't understand why James Bond has to be a man all the time. When Pierce Brosnan retires, why not one of us?"

[on why she was happy to get married:] "I'm so grateful I don't have to go looking for a man on a Saturday night. I was always terrible at chatting up men." [December 10, 2003]

[about "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997):] "To me, the scariest elements of horror films are the things that could really happen. And what is more scary than high school? ... What I like about the show is that it reminds you it's O.K. to be different. What people think isn't necessarily true. If people walk away with half of that, we've done our job." [New York Times, April 27, 1997]

[on playing Kendall Hart on "All My Children" (1970):] "I seduced my stepfather, and when he wouldn't sleep with me, I slept with the stable boy, cried rape, and my mother stabbed him with a letter opener. Then I went to jail for perjury, burned my parents' divorce papers, and locked up my little sister. I think that was all in the first week." [New York Times, April 27, 1997]

[on attending the Professional Children's High School in Manhattan:] "Everybody there had a talent, and everyone was respected. If somebody didn't like you--they didn't talk to you! They didn't make fun of you, punish you. You could, you know, mess around with how you dress. You really had that chance to find yourself, and I thank God for that school. I went to that school feeling amazingly untalented. That school was my lifeline. Let me tell you something--talent night at our school? There was nothing like it."

"Horror films are where women can shine and have a chance to lead. They always save the day in these films."

[On gay marriage] "I have good friends, gay couples, who've been together for 18 years. It drives me crazy that in the eyes of the law, their love isn't acknowledged when I have girlfriends who have married four times by the age of 25."

[On religion] "I don't believe in organized religion and I never have."
