American actor Giovanni Ribisi, produced in La, California, on December 17, 1974, started acting as a young child and made a transition from television to film in his 20s. He’s performed a variety of character parts in films including period plays like Saving Private Ryan and Public Enemies to the action thriller Contraband, the comedy Ted as well as the sci fi fantasy strike Avatar.
Antonino Giovanni Ribisi, better known as Giovanni Ribisi, was created on December 17, 1974, in La, California. His dad, Albert Anthony Ribisi, is a musician. His mom, Homosexual (Landrum) Ribisi, is a photographer as well as a film producer including a talent manager for performers and writers.
Ribisi had an early fascination with performing and started to attend auditions when he was about 9 years old. He continued to act on television in the 1990s, playing Fred Savage’s buddy Jeff on The Wonder Years and Lisa Kudrow’s somewhat dimwitted brother, Frank Jr., on Friends.
By the 1990s, nevertheless, Ribisi had already set his sights on a movie career. He acquired a fast transition from bit parts in lightweight pictures like The Outpost and The Grave to modest but memorable roles in higher-profile films with leading directors. He appeared in Tom Hanks’s That Thing You Do! and Richard Linklater’s SubUrbia, both released in 1996, along with David Lynch’s noir thriller Lost Highway in 1997.
Following a little lull in his career in the early 2000s, Ribisi has continued to demonstrate his versatility with a different varied run of distinctively defined character parts.
In 2009 Ribisi began a business called Stereo D that focuses on converting pictures from 2 D to 3-D.
Ribisi has been married twice. The couple had one child, daughter Lucia (created 1997). In the year 2012, Ribisi wed the British-created model Agyness Deyn. Ribisi’s twin sister, Marissa, is wed to the musician Beck.
Ribisi and his sister were brought up in the Church of Scientology and remain active members of the faith.
