Yvette Mimieux Biography

Yvette Carmen Mimieux was born on January 8, 1942 in Los Angeles to a French father and Mexican mother. The 66 year old is 5’4″, 107 lbs, and her measurements are 34″-21.5″-35″.

Prior to signing with MGM in 1959, Yvette Mimieux was a model and beauty contest winner. In 1960, she starred in Where the Boys Are and The Time Machine. Some of her other movie credits include The Light in the Piazza, Diamond Head, and Toys in the Attic.

Her status as a sex symbol likely hindered her movie career, as she found serious roles difficult to find. Many of her movies after 1963 were critical and commercial failures, however she worked steadily in film and on tv through the mid 1980s.

Aside from being an actress, Yvette Mimieux is also an anthropologist and a real estate investor. She was married to film director Stanley Donen from 1972 to 1985. During this time, Yvette shifted her attention from her career to her husband, and also focused on her poetry, dancing, and other interests. She is currently married to Howard Ruby, who she wed in 1986. Ruby is a founding partner and current Chairman of R & B Enterprises (now known as Oakwood Worldwide). Ruby is also an award-winning environmentalist, thanks to his photography of polar bears. Yvette has no children.
