Early Life and Career
Collette was born Antonia Collette on November 1, 1972, in Sydney, Australia. Collette grew up in the Sydney suburbs as the eldest of three children; her father was a truck driver and her mother was a customer service representative.
Collette was chosen from among thousands of other prospective candidates to play the lead role in an Australian bicentennial musical not long after getting her first taste of performing in a high school production of Godspell. Encouraged by her early success, she dropped out of school at the age of 16 to work with the Australian Theatre for Young People.
Collette studied acting at Sydney’s National Institute of Dramatic Art in the late 1980s, but she dropped out after a year and a half when she landed a role in a Sydney stage production of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya.
Films, TV and Theater
Collette made her feature film debut in The Efficiency Expert, a 1992 comedy starring Anthony Hopkins and Russell Crowe. In June 1993, she was performing in a play called Summer of the Aliens when she auditioned for the role that would prove to be her breakthrough: the gawky, ABBA-obsessed heroine of P.J. Hogan’s black comedy Muriel’s Wedding (1994). Collette gained 42 pounds for the role and received critical acclaim around the world, including an Australian Film Institute award for Best Actress.
‘Emma,’ ‘Lilian’s Story,’ ‘The Boys’
A number of big-screen roles followed, most notably a supporting role as the impressionable Harriet Smith in Gwyneth Paltrow’s 1996 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel Emma. Collette also appeared in Cosi (1996), Diana and Me (1997), and Velvet Goldmine (1998), and she was nominated for an Australian Film Institute award for her supporting roles in Lilian’s Story (1996) and The Boys (1998).
‘The Sixth Sense’
Collette co-starred in the blockbuster suspense film The Sixth Sense with Bruce Willis in 1999, as the concerned mother of a troubled young boy (played by Haley Joel Osment). Collette was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her understated performance and admirable American accent.
‘The Wild Party’ on Broadway, ‘Shaft’
Collette made her Broadway debut in 2000, earning a Tony nomination for her performance in The Wild Party as a 1920s vaudeville performer alongside veteran musical theater actors Mandy Patinkin and Eartha Kitt. She also appeared in Shaft, John Singleton’s remake of the 1971 private eye film of the same name, alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Christian Bale.
‘The Hours,’ ‘About a Boy,’ ‘Little Miss Sunshine’
Collette continued to work in a variety of comedies and dramas, including a supporting role in the critically acclaimed film The Hours (2002) alongside Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep. That same year, she co-starred with Hugh Grant in About a Boy, based on Nick Hornby’s novel. Collette starred in the 2006 family drama comedy Little Miss Sunshine alongside Steve Carell, Abigail Breslin, and Greg Kinnear.
‘United States of Tara’
Collette received widespread acclaim for her role as a woman with Dissociative Identity Disorder in the television series United States of Tara. Her character had several distinct personalities as a result of her disorder, ranging in age and gender. The series, created by Cody Diablo, received numerous award nominations over its three-year run, with Collette winning an Emmy in 2009 and a Golden Globe in 2010.
‘Fright Night,’ ‘Hitchcock’
Collette went on to star in the comedic horror film Fright Night (2011) alongside Colin Farrell and as the assistant to the real-life master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, in Hitchcock (2012), starring Hopkins. She quickly returned to lighter fare, reuniting with Carell for the 2013 comedy The Way, Way Back, and making a splash at the Toronto International Film Festival that year with Lucky Them.
‘The Realistic Jonses,’ ‘The Boxtrolls’
Collette starred in the CBS thriller Hostages in 2013, but the show was cancelled before the end of its first season. She then made a triumphant return to Broadway in 2014 with The Realistic Joneses, co-starring Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts, and Marisa Tomei, and also provided voice work for the stop-motion feature The Boxtrolls that year.
‘Krampus,’ ‘Hereditary,’ ‘Knives Out’
Collette’s prolific output continued with roles in films such as the tearjerker Miss You Already (2015), the horror-comedy Krampus (2015), and the action blockbuster XXX: Return of Xander Cage (2017). She returned to the small screen in 2018 with the BBC-Netflix series Wanderlust, then returned to horror with the well-received Hereditary (2018) and Velvet Buzzsaw (2019), before joining the cast of Knives Out (2019).
