Maria Bello, originally Maria Elena Bello, was born on April 18, 1967 in Norristown, Pennsylvania. She is famously known as a successful actress and singer who has an Italian, American, and Polish ancestry. After graduating from Villanova University, she took acting classes so she can master the art and portray well in theater productions that she was really into. She started to appear on big screen in 1992 when she was cast as Mrs. Smith in the American crime drama series Mr. & Mrs. Smith alongside Scott Bakula. Her first appearance made an impression, that’s why series of acting opportunities immediately opened doors for her. In 1997, she played the role Dr. Anna Del Amico in the medical drama TV series ER, followed by her appearances in Permanent Midnight, Payback, Coyote Ugly, and Auto Focus. Because she was seen as a highly-skilled actress, she earned several awards and nominations in the year 2003 for playing the role Natalie Belisario in The Cooler. Nowadays she is busy filming the sports drama film McFarland which is to be released this year.
At 47, the beautiful actress still looks perfectly in good shape. And of course, she credits it to her healthy lifestyle. “I have a trainer named Aimee Carpenter,” she said in one of her interviews. “And she has this company called Indigo Mountain. Some days we go for a hike, other days we do weights at my house. It’s kind of like going with the flow instead of thinking, ‘I have to do 20 squats today. I also do Pilates at a studio called Embodiment.”
Other than that, Maria also loves to consume foods that boost her stamina. “I have a green juice most mornings. It’s a jolt of energy that’s better than caffeine. I mix kale, cucumber, celery, apple, and jalapeno pepper for a sweet and savory flavor,” she shared.
