Phoebe Cates followed in the footsteps of her entertainment family. Her father and uncle are both television producers, and her cousin, Gil Cates Jr., is also in the movie business.
She attended the School of American Ballet until a knee injury in 1977 caused her to quit. From there she went on to model and do some work in commercials. But it was in 1982 she got her first break in film when Stuart Gilliard offered her a role in his movie, Paradise. Several movies followed, but sometime in 1997 she decided to take a break from acting in order
to raise her two children, Greta and Owen, by husband, actor Kevin Kline. She now owns and runs a small boutique in New York called the Blue Tree. According to Phoebe, acting is no longer in her blood.
