She recently starred in the Tyler Perry romantic comedy Good Deeds opposite Perry and Thandie Newton, which hit theaters in February. Romijn can also be seen in the new Adult Swim comedy NTSF:SD:SUV opposite Paul Scheer, Martin Starr, and Rob Riggle.
Romijn most recently co-starred for two seasons on the Emmy-nominated ABC comedy series Ugly Betty.

In its debut season, the show won the Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and the Writers Guild Award for Best New Series.
Previously, she starred in the blockbuster hits X-Men, X2, and X3: The Last Stand. In this trio of films she played villainess Mystique opposite Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry. She recently reprised this role for a cameo in X-Men: First Class. However, it was her role in Brian De Palma’s Femme Fatale opposite Antonio Banderas that won her critical acclaim. In this film noir thriller, Romijn plays a woman attempting to go straight, while being haunted by her shady con-woman past. The Los Angeles Times said of her performance, “Not since Sissy Spacek burned up the screen in Carrie has a De Palma woman held the screen as forcefully as Rebecca Romijn.” Other film credits include The Punisher, Godsend, Rollerball, Simone, Lies and Alibis, Man About Town, and, most recently, Lake City. Romijn previously starred on the WB series Pepper Dennis.
She began crossing over from the fashion world to TV with memorable appearances on the hit television shows Friends and Just Shoot Me, as well as hosting MTV’s House of Style. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband, actor Jerry O’Connell, and their twin daughters.
