Stephanie Szostak

Biography

French American actress Stephanie Szostak never thought of becoming an actress. She left France after high school to study business and play varsity golf at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Upon graduating college, Szostak landed a job in marketing at Chanel in New York and was eventually asked to model for one of their in-house brochures. It was at that moment that she decided to take a leap of faith and start a modeling career at 26 years old. Three years later, Szostak took her first acting class in New York City and knew that she had finally found her passion. Soon after, she landed a role opposite Meryl Streep in the iconic film "The Devil Wears Prada." Szostak currently stars as one of the leads in ABC's drama series "A Million Little Things."

Most recently, Szostak appeared in guest roles on the TV Land series "Younger," Bravo's "Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce" and CBS' "Bull." She also starred opposite Matt Passmore in USA Network's "Satisfaction." Additionally, Szostak appeared in the Ricky Blitt-directed independent comedy "Hit by Lightning," alongside Jon Cryer and Will Sasso, and co-starred opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges in Universal Pictures' "R.I.P.D."

In 2013, Szostak took on her first action role in Marvel's "Iron Man 3" as villain Brandt, opposite Robert Downey Jr. Also in 2013, Szostak appeared in Ross Krauss' "Gimme Shelter" with Vanessa Hudgens, Brendan Fraser and Rosario Dawson.

In 2011, Szostak played Matt Damon's late wife in the Fox comedy-drama from Cameron Crowe titled, "We Bought a Zoo"; and in 2010, she starred as the female lead opposite Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell and Zach Galifianakis in Paramount Pictures' "Dinner for Schmucks."

In 2006, Szostak rivaled Meryl Streep's Miranda Priestly as French Vogue editor Jacqueline Follet in David Frankel's beloved take on Lauren Weisberger's novel of the same name, "The Devil Wears Prada." The film received critical acclaim and garnered an AFI Award for Movie of the Year, a Golden Globe® nomination in the category of Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical and was named one of the Top Ten Films of the year by the National Board of Review, among others.

Szostak has a Bachelor of Science in marketing from the College of William and Mary and is an avid golfer. She lives outside of New York City with her husband and two sons.
