Although the family has always been very important to her, twenty Famke decided that she needed to go to New York to continue his professional career. While she studied economics at the University of Amsterdam, but dreaming of the podium.

Elite agency immediately signed a contract with the young was Dutch, but in spite of it. she did not quit and study. Famke entered the University of Columbia, where she specialized in the study of literature. It was then that Famke decided to try his hand also in the dramatic arts. She started attending acting classes Harold Gaskin and eventually moved to Los Angeles - a haven of novice actors. Here she continued her studies and soon had a small role in the television movie "Fathers and Sons". It was 1992.

However, the debut role Jansen has not created a furore (possibly due to a failed film productions), so in the future proposals for the shootings were few. However, Famke got a role in the television series "Star Trek," and then in "Melrose Place." This was followed by a few minor roles, and, finally, the long-awaited success after taking part in the next series of James Bond, where Famke played the role of Bond`s girlfriends - Xenia Onatopp.

However, this success has not inspired the charming Dutch woman, feared that it will only accept a femme fatale - and nothing else. Therefore, in the future she chose to star in more independent projects, and not in mainstream films.

In the mid 90-ies of the last century Famke tselomryade starred in films: "The Dead Girl", "Industrial City", "Leader". Fans can see her in the movie "Mission Impossible 2" and "Department", where she co-starred with such notable actors like Matt Damon, Edward Norton and Salma Hayek.

Famke fluent in German, in French and in English. Her favorite authors - is Bronte sisters, Vladimir Nabokov. In interviews, the actress said that would prefer to make movies that are set based on the novels. After all, such a deeper role, dramatically intense.

While "X-Men" - a film shot not on the novel, but only on the comics, the role of Jean Grey Famke added "star weight." And now fans of the picture to decide which of the superheroes, girls they like: Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, Halle Berry and Famke Janssen.

After the success of "X-Men" Famke starred in the other, no less interesting paintings. Among them - "House on Haunted Hill," where she played the wife of an eccentric millionaire and owner of horror attraction. Living spouses are not very friendly - Mrs. Price came out at the time marriage is not for Stephen Price and his money. "Loving" husband throws a party dedicated to the birthday of little woman, in the house where many years ago there was a closed psychiatric hospital, chief physician which maim and kill the criminally insane. When guests arrive, it turns out that no one knows anyone. Someone switched the list ... In a word, with its main task - to scare the audience - the film copes best.

No less is psychological and the other picture with Famke - "Do not Say a Word," where she again played the wife of the protagonist - a successful psychiatrist who has kidnapped her daughter. But the film "Trick all" with Eddie Murphy, Owen Wilson, and of course, Famke - a real comedy. The plot of a spy movie, as befits such pictures, confusion and not always be traced quite clearly.

Famke has signed a contract to participate in "Trick all" immediately after the picture was not included in "Men in Black 2", where it is supposed to play a villain-the alien. From another fantastic role - in "Terminator 3", where she was offered to play a female terminator, the actress refused to herself.

With regard to the personal life of a star, then this bit of information. Famke does not like anyone to devote to their spiritual experiences. We only know that her future husband Famke met in college. "We were so young," - she said. But, despite the fact that the spouses have lived together for eleven years, the marriage fell apart. The reason for the divorce actress explains that she does not have time to family life. "I have divorced after nearly a year spent traveling on the set. I acted in four films, one came after the other. The shooting took place in different places, I lived in a trailer ... You understand, it`s not the best way to maintain a close relationship. In general, , we did not work out. "

And Famke believes that in this regard, male actors much easier. They can carry their wives for themselves on the set. "Find a man who will say," O` Kay, I`m just going to go with my girlfriend (wife), and this is my life "- it is impossible", - says the actress.

But she has no regrets about what life itself has chosen. "I have to sacrifice for the sake of his work,. In order to become what I am now probably my marriage would have collapsed without it."

It is much harder Famke survived the divorce of his parents, who separated when she was sixteen years old. This event affected the entire life of the actress. "The child is their parents` ideal, their love for him is perfect I came into the world with the same ideas, and long enough to save them may be why I have lived so long with her husband..."

Family is really important for Famke. "Imagine, my two sisters - blue-eyed blonde, brunette and I" - she laughs. Due to the permanent employment she was not often able to see my parents and sisters. But she loves them very much, and his three nieces adores: "They grow up so fast that, looking at them, you know how time flies." Famke maintains close relationships with family and ex-husband. "We still communicate, - says the actress -. And my husband and we were good friends."

But for children 39-year-old actress does not even think: "My sisters have always dreamed about children, only I did not want them. For me is important, my family, my friends, at last, my own life, but the children ... I do not know."

In his spare time, and this is extremely rare, Famke prefers to spend with friends. "Wherever I was shot, everywhere I get a lot of new friends. We go somewhere and have fun, and it`s great." She also loves New York for his spontaneity and unpredictability. She loves to go to museums and exhibitions.

And to the question, what kind of thing she would have been saved if her apartment caught fire, Famke, without hesitation, replied: "My cats. They have two, and each time leaving, I miss him terribly."
