The actress, Harvard graduate and mother of three is ready for another year on the big screen!

Elisabeth Shue was last seen in the summer blockbuster thriller Piranha 3-D, but next she’s taking on a more serious role as a doctor treating a woman with multiple personality disorder in Waking Madison. Best known for her girl-next-door characters in The Karate Kid and Back To The Future, Elisabeth earned an Academy Award nomination by breaking the mold in Leaving Las Vegas alongside Nicolas Cage!

The Harvard graduate has three children with her husband, David GuggenheimMiles, 12, Stella, 9, and Agnes, 4. (Interesting fact: Her brother is fellow actor Andrew Shue, who starred with her in 2007’s Gracie!) Now, it seems that Elisabeth is picking movies that are exciting and fun! She chose Piranha 3-D because she got to be a cool mom and do her own stunts! “That, to me, was really why I did the movie,” she says. “To have a little moment being a mom who’s an action hero!” Well, Elisabeth, we’re sure your kids think you’re an action hero every day! Happy Birthday!
