    Irv­ing was born on Sep­tem­ber 10, 1953 in Palo Alto, Cal­i­for­nia. Her fa­ther was film and stage di­rec­tor Jules Irv­ing (born Jules Is­rael) and her mother is ac­tress Priscilla Pointer. Her brother is writer and di­rec­tor David Irv­ing (not the British au­thor of the same name) and her sis­ter, Katie Irv­ing, is a singer and teacher of deaf chil­dren. Irv­ing's fa­ther was Jew­ish, as was one of Irv­ing's ma­ter­nal great-great-grandfathers. Irv­ing was raised in Chris­t­ian Sci­ence, and her fam­ily ob­served no re­li­gious traditions. She spent her early life in San Fran­cisco, Cal­i­for­nia, where her fa­ther co-founded the Actor's Work­shop, and where she was ac­tive in local the­ater as a child. She at­tended the Amer­i­can Con­ser­va­tory The­ater in San Francisco in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and ap­peared in sev­eral pro­duc­tions there. She also trained at the Lon­don Acad­emy of Music and Dra­matic Art, and made her off-Broad­way debut at age 17 in And Choco­l...

    Irv­ing's first stage ap­pear­ance was at 9 months old in the pro­duc­tion "Rum­plestilt­skin" where her fa­ther brought her on the stage to play the part of his child who he trades for spun gold. Then at age 2, she por­trayed a bit-part char­ac­ter ("Princess Prim­rose") in a play which her fa­ther di­rected. She had a walk-on role in the 1965-66 Broad­way show The Coun­try Wife at age 12. Her char­ac­ter was to sell a ham­ster to Stacy Keach in a crowd scene. The play was di­rected by fam­ily friend Robert Symonds, the owner/op­er­a­tor of Lin­coln Cen­ter, and who later be­came her step­fa­ther after her fa­ther died and her mother re­mar­ried. Within six months of re­turn­ing to Los An­ge­les from Lon­don Acad­emy of Music and Dra­matic Art in the mid-1970s, Irv­ing was cast in a major mo­tion pic­ture and was work­ing on var­i­ous TV pro­jects such as guest spots in Po­lice Woman, Happy Days, and a lead role in the mini-se­ries epic Once an Eagle op­po­site vet­er­ans Sam El­li...

    Irv­ing re­ceived an Acad­emy Award nom­i­na­tion for Best Sup­port­ing Ac­tress for her per­for­mance in the film Yentl, Golden Globe nom­i­na­tions for her per­for­mances in the films Anas­ta­sia: The Mys­tery of Anna and Cross­ing De­lancey, and an Obie Award for her stage per­for­mance in The Road to Mecca. Irv­ing holds the dis­tinc­tion of being one of only two peo­ple to be nom­i­nated for both an Oscar and a Razzie Award for the same per­for­mance. Irv­ing was nom­i­nated for both Best and Worst Sup­port­ing Ac­tress for her work in Yentl. Only James Coco achieved the same feat for his work in Only When I Laugh. She was the win­ner of the cat­e­gory Worst Sup­port­ing Ac­tress at the first an­nual Razzie Awards in 1981 for her film Hon­ey­suckle Rose, beat­ing, among oth­ers, Betsy Palmer for Fri­day the 13th and Eliz­a­beth Ash­ley for Win­dows.

    Irv­ing dated Amer­i­can film di­rec­tor Steven Spiel­berg from 1976 to 1980. She then had a brief re­la­tion­ship with Willie Nel­son, her co-star in the film Hon­ey­suckle Rose. The breakup with Spiel­berg cost her the role of Mar­ion Raven­wood in Raiders of the Lost Ark, which he had of­fered to her at the time, but they soon got back to­gether and were mar­ried from 1985-1989. She re­ceived an es­ti­mated $100 mil­lion di­vorce set­tle­ment after a judge con­tro­ver­sially va­cated a prenup­tial agree­mentthat had been writ­ten on a napkin. In 1990 she be­came ro­man­ti­cally and pro­fes­sion­ally in­volved with Brazil­ian film di­rec­tor Bruno Bar­reto;they were mar­ried in 1996 and di­vorced in 2005. She has two sons, Max Samuel (with Spiel­berg) (born June 13, 1985), and Gabriel Davis (with Bar­reto) (born May 4, 1990). She mar­ried Ken­neth Bowser Jr., a doc­u­men­tary film­maker, in 2007.As of 2015, Irv­ing resided in New York City.

    Amy Davis Irving was born on the 10th September 1953, in Palo Alto, California, a daughter of Priscilla Pointer, an actress, and Jules Irving, a film and stage director. Amy has a brother, David Irving, a writer and director, and a sister, Katie Irving, a teacher of deaf children and a singer. Irving grew up in San Francisco, California, where her father formed the Actor’s Workshop, and where Amy took her first acting steps, later attending the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. After training at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, Amy and her family moved to New York City, where she graduated from the Professional Children’s School.

    Irving appeared on stage in numerous plays thanks to her director father, and actually had a few Broadway roles, but her dream was to make it to the big screen. She debuted on television in an episode of the series “The Rookies” in 1975, and a year later played in her first TV movie entitled “James Dean”. Between 1976 and 1977, Amy had the role as Emily Pawlfrey Massengale in the Golden Globes Award-nominated show “Once an Eagle”, and although she didn’t get the part of Princess Leia in “Star Wars” (1977) which went to Carrie Fisher, she made it to the big screen in Brian De Palma’s Oscar-nominated horror “Carrie” (1976), playing alongside Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie, and which proved to be a stepping stone for Irving, and she then worked with De Palma in “The Fury” (1978), starring Kirk Douglas, John Cassavetes and Carrie Snodgress, and co-starred with Ron Howard in the TV movie “I’m a Fool” (1977).

    The ‘80s were the best years in Amy’s career, and she opened the decade with roles in such movies as the Oscar-nominated “Honeysuckle Rose”, and “The Competition” both in 1980, in which she co-starred alongside Richard Dreyfuss. Irving’s only Oscar nomination was for the role in the Oscar-winning musical “Yentl” (1983), starring Barbra Streisand, with Amy receiving a nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. After playing in the TV mini-series “The Far Pavilions” (1984), Irving had a part alongside Dudley Moore and Ann Reinking in the Golden Globes Award-winning comedy called “Micki + Maude” (1984). Two years later, Amy portrayed Anna Anderson, who claimed to be Anastasia Romanov, in the Golden Globes Award-winning biography drama “Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna” (1986), for which she received a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television. By the end of the ‘80s, Amy had received another Golden Globes Award nomination,...

    The ‘90s weren’t as prolific as the previous decade, but Amy did appear in several movies including “Twilight Zone: Rod Serling’s Lost Classics” (1994), playing in the segment “The Theater”, and in the romantic drama “Acts of Love” (1996) with Dennis Hopper and Gary Busey. She had a smaller part in Woody Allen’s Oscar-nominated comedy “Deconstructing Harry” (1997), starring Woody Allen, Judy Davis and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and then starred in Bruno Barreto’s “Bossa Nova” in 2000. Irving was active in the early 2000s, playing in Steven Soderbergh’s Oscar-winning thriller “Traffic” (2000) with Michael Douglas, Benicio Del Toro, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and having parts in “Thirteen Conversations About One Thing” (2001) alongside Alan Arkin, John Turturro and Matthew McConaughey, and in “Tuck Everlasting” (2002). From 2002 to 2005, Amy played Emily Sloane in nine episodes of the Golden Globes Award-winning series “Alias”, and appeared alongside Robert De Niro, Dakota Fanning, and Famke...

    Amy Irving is a talented actress with over 50 on-screen credits to her name, but most of her wealth – which is estimated authoritatively at $120 million as of early 2019 – came thanks to a divorce from the Hollywood director Steven Spielberg. She received a settlement of $100 million and it isn’t strange why she is not that active on the screen anymore as she clearly doesn’t have to work to support herself. What do you think?

    Amy Irving dated Steven Spielberg from 1976 to 1980 but they broke up and she briefly dated singer/actor Willie Nelson before marrying Spielberg in 1985. They have one child together, a son named Max Samuel, but divorced in 1989, and Spielberg ended up paying Amy $100 million in the settlement as the court refused to consider the prenuptial agreementthat had been written on a cocktail napkin. From 1996 to 2005, Irving was married to the Brazilian director Bruno Barreto and has a son named Gabriel Davis with him. Since 2007, Amy has been married to documentary filmmaker Kenneth Bowser, and as of 2015, she has been living in New York City. Kenneth was born in February 1951 in New York, and has come to prominence through such shows and documentaries “American Masters” (1990-2012), and “Saturday Night Live” special documentaries from 2007 to 2011, among other accomplishments.
