Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentMary Elizabeth Winstead Bio – Smartasses Magazine Mary Elizabeth Winstead (born November 28, 1984) is an American actress and singer. The daughter of James Ronald Winstead and Betty Lou Knight, Winstead was raised Southern Baptist. She has three older sisters and one older brother. Winstead took advanced classes at Peruvian Park Elementary, and was subsequently homeschooled through most of high school after making the decision to pursue acting. She also sang in the International Children’s Choir, and studied dance at a Joffrey Ballet summer program in Chicago, Illinois. Winstead has been married to film director and television writer Riley Stearns since October 2010.

As a youth, Winstead initially hoped to pursue a career as a ballerina and appeared in local ballet productions. Realizing that a dance career was unlikely due to her height, she turned to acting. Winstead first appeared in a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat starring Donny Osmond, and soon began making appearances in various television shows, including guest spots on Touched by an Angel and Promised Land. In 1999, she landed her first major television role as Jessica Bennett on the NBC soap opera Passions. In 2006, she made her first major film appearance as Wendy Christensen in the horror film Final Destination 3. In 2007, Winstead appeared alongside Rosario Dawson, Rose McGowan, Jordan Ladd and Vanessa Ferlito in Quentin Tarantino’s exploitation thriller Grindhouse. That same year, she also starred as John McClane’s daughter Lucy, in the action film Live Free or Die Hard– a role she would reprise in 2012’s A Good Day to Die Hard. Winstead’s breakthrough role came in 2010, portraying Ramona Flowers in the comic-book adaptation film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. In 2011, she was cast as the lead in the prequel to the 1982 film The Thing, and also starred as Mary Todd Lincoln in the action film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. In 2012, Winstead appeared as Leah in Hollywood’s first interactive social film, a remake of the Korean drama The Beauty Inside. Later in 2012, Winstead was cast opposite Aubrey Plaza, in Roman Coppola’s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. In 2015, she returned to television as a series regular on A&E’s remake of the French drama series The Returned, and also had a role in the dramedy The Hollars alongside Anna Kendrick. In 2016, Winstead headlined the psychological thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, and later that same year, she again returned to television for the CBS political comic thriller BrainDead, as well as the PBS historical drama, Mercy Street. In 2017, she joined the third season of the FX series, Fargo.

As a singer, in 2013, Winstead and Dan the Automator formed the band Got a Girl, and released the album I Love You but I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now on July 22, 2014. She was also featured on the songs The Agony and Look Across The Sky on Deltron 3030’s album Event 2. In November 2016, Honus Honus from the band Man Man released Santa Monica, which also features Winstead. In December 2016, “Portugal. The Man” released the single Noise Pollution featuring Winstead and Zoe Manville.

As she entered her teens Winstead was forced to quit ballet due to her height. At the age of eighteen, Winstead met her future husband on an ocean cruise, which she had turned down a role in the film A Cinderella Story to take. Winstead drove a Volkswagen Jetta in both Final Destination 3 and 10 Cloverfield Lane. For her part in Death Proof, Quentin Tarantino had Winstead sing an a cappella cover of The Shirelles’ hit Baby It’s You. She was asked without warning to perform the song, and the cast were reportedly “gob-smacked” by her singing. For Scott Pilgrim, Winstead went through fight training for two months and performed most of her own stunts.

Why we think she’s hot:

Mary, Mary, quite contrary. Unlike some stars, where you’ll go see a film simply because they are in it, Mary Elizabeth Winstead has a way of conversely being a very pleasant surprise in movies and television shows you were probably going to watch anyway. Though she unequivocally has the kindest pair of eyeballs anywhere in Hollywood, Miss Mary isn’t necessarily the proverbial girl next door like Wendy Christensen in Final Destination 3, but she is that “Oh wow. Who’s that?” girl from the next neighborhood over.
