Biography

Patricia T. Arquette (born April 8, 1968) is an Emmy Award-winning and Golden Globe Award-nominated American actress.

Arquette was born in Chicago, Illinois and was raised in Virginia and California, daughter of Mardi Olivia (Nowak), an actress, poet, teacher and therapist, and Lewis Arquette, an actor. Arquette's paternal grandfather was comedian Cliff Arquette. Arquette's mother was Jewish, the daughter of a Holocaust refugee from Poland, and her father was a convert to Islam and a descendant of explorer Meriwether Lewis. Arquette's siblings are actors Rosanna, Alexis, Richmond and David Arquette. Arquette is also the sister-in-law of Courteney Cox, who is married to her brother David.

In April 1995, Arquette married Nicolas Cage (whom she would later co-star with in Bringing Out the Dead in 1999). They separated after nine months, but acted as a couple in public until Cage filed for divorce in February 2000. The divorce petition was withdrawn, but Arquette filed again in November 2000.

She and actor Thomas Jane became engaged in 2002 and married on June 25, 2006 at the Palazzo Contarini in Venice, Italy. They have a daughter, Harlow Olivia Calliope, born on February 20, 2003. Arquette also has a son, Enzo (b. 1989), from her previous relationship with musician Paul Rossi.

In 1997, after her mother died of breast cancer, Arquette worked to raise awareness about the disease. She has run in the annual Race for the Cure, and in 1999 was the spokesperson for Lee National Denim Day, which raises millions of dollars for breast cancer research and education.
