 ยท mark

Diane Lane is an American actress born on January 22, 1965, in New York City. She is the daughter of acting coach Burt Lane and nightclub singer Colleen Farrington. Lane began her acting career at a very young age, making her screen debut in George Roy Hill's 1979 film "A Little Romance," for which she received widespread acclaim.

Her early promise as a child actress transitioned smoothly into adult roles, and she gained further recognition in the 1980s with significant parts in films such as "The Outsiders" (1983) and "Rumble Fish" (1983), both directed by Francis Ford Coppola. These performances established Lane as a versatile and dynamic actress capable of portraying a variety of characters.

In the 1990s, Diane Lane continued to work consistently, starring in a mix of big-budget and independent films. Her role in "Unfaithful" (2002), portraying a woman involved in an extramarital affair, is one of her most notable performances, earning her Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild nominations for Best Actress.

Lane has also starred in several commercially successful films. She played Martha Kent, the adoptive mother of Superman, in the DC Extended Universe, appearing in "Man of Steel" (2013), "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016), and "Justice League" (2017). Her other popular films include "Under the Tuscan Sun" (2003), for which she received a Golden Globe nomination, and the romantic drama "Nights in Rodanthe" (2008).

Apart from her film career, Lane has also had roles in television, including a leading role in the Amazon Studios series "The Romanoffs" (2018) and in the Netflix drama series "House of Cards," joining the cast in its final season.

Diane Lane's personal life, at times, has been part of public interest. She was once married to actor Christopher Lambert with whom she has a daughter, Eleanor Lambert. Later, she was married to actor Josh Brolin from 2004 to 2013.

As of my knowledge cutoff in early 2023, Diane Lane is respected both for her craft and her longevity in the industry, having sustained a successful career across several decades.
