American actress, model, and singer Bijou Lilly Phillips Masterson was born on April 1, 1980. She started out as a model before becoming the daughter of musician John Phillips and Geneviève Wate.
I’d Rather Eat Glass (1999) was Phillips’ first foray into the music industry; subsequent films include Almost Famous (2000), Bully (2001), The Door in the Floor (2004), Hostel: Part II (2007), and Choke (2008). She appeared as Lucy Carlyle in multiple episodes of Raising Hope between 2010 and 2013.
Bijou Phillips Net Worth
With a net worth of $8 million, Bijou Phillips is an American actress, model, and singer. Together with her actor spouse Danny Masterson, they have a combined net worth of $2.5 million. When Bijou was 13, she decided to become a model so that she could avoid attending boarding school.
She quickly rose to prominence as one of the youngest models ever to appear on the covers of such publications as Interview and Italian Vogue. She was also featured in a number of Calvin Klein advertisements. Playboy, Missbehave, Stuff, and Nylon have all featured Phillips on their covers.
Her first film role was as Charlie in 1999’s “Black and White.” Film critics liked her performance, and she went on to appear in a number of additional films, including “Almost Famous,” “Tart,” “Bully,” “The Door in the Floor,” “Havoc,” “Choke,” “Hotel Chelsea,” and “Dark Secrets.” In the late ’90s, Bijou also put out a few music singles.
Bijou Phillips Career
Phillips entered the public eye at a young age as a child model. At the tender age of thirteen, she graced the cover of “Interview” magazine, and later, “Vogue Italia.” She became a Calvin Klein image model and was featured in numerous contentious underwear-only ads. People said the campaigns were pedophilic because of her young age.
Phillips received a record deal and started working on her first album when she was just 17 years old. This album, “I’d Rather Eat Glass,” was released in May of 1999 and was produced by Jerry Harrison. The model’s distaste for revisiting her modeling roots is implicit in the album’s title. Critics were divided on the album, which is still her sole full-length offering.
Phillips made her big screen debut the same year, in the indie drama “Sugar Town.” She played a little part. However, in the same year, she also played a significant role in “Black and White,” alongside Robert Downey Jr., Jared Leto, Brooke Shields, and Elijah Wood. They shared a co-starring role in the 2000 film “Almost Famous” with Kate Hudson.

The following year, she starred in two coming-of-age films (both independently produced): “Tart” and “Bully.” It was because of her work in these movies that she was named one of 2002’s “Shooting Stars of Tomorrow” by “The Hollywood Reporter.”
Phillips and Mischa Barton co-starred in the 2003 thriller “Octane,” which made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. She made an appearance in “A Door in the Floor” in 2004, followed by “Havoc” and “Venom” in 2005. Phillips went on to star in several chillers over the next few years.
Starting with “The Wizard of Gore” in 2007, she has since co-starred in three films with actress Lauren German: “Spin,” “Hostel: Part II,” and “What We Do Is Secret.” She has a part in the 2008 film “Chelsea on the Rocks,” which recounts the history of the illustrious Hotel Chelsea in New York City.
Four of the 2009 feature films in which Phillips appeared starred Danny Masterson, her future husband. She had roles in the movies “Wake,” “It’s Alive,” “Dread Central,” and “Made for Each Other.” The following year, she landed a recurring role on the FOX sitcom “Raising Hope,” in which she portrays Hope’s sister.
Over the course of the show’s four-year run, she made seven appearances. During the same time frame, she also had guest starring roles on “Hawaii Five-0″ and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” Phillips has not been seen in public since 2014, when she left “Raising Hope” to concentrate on her family and health.
