Diane Lane

DIANE LANE is one of Hollywood’s most beloved and respected actors. 

Lane earned her first Academy Award nomination in 2003 for her leading role in  Adrian Lyne’s thriller  Unfaithful (2002).  She received Emmy nominations as the beloved Lorena in  Lonesome Dove  and Pat Loud in  Cinema Verite  in 1989 and 2011, respectively. Her film debut at the age of 14 opposite Sir Laurence Olivier in A LITTLE ROMANCE (1979) was the beginning of an illustrious career that includes Under the Tuscan Sun (2003), A Walk on the Moon (1999), Chaplin (1992), The Perfect Storm (2000), Must Love Dogs (2005), Nights in Rodanthe (2008) with Richard Gere, Hollywoodland (2006) with Ben Affleck, Let Him Go (2020), and the hit Netflix series House of Cards. Her screen work has been recognized with Best Actress accolades from the New York Film Critics, the National Society of Film Critics as well as nominations from the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, Critics Choice Awards and the Independent Spirit Awards.

She’s co-starred in four films for director Francis Ford Coppola: The Outsiders (1983), Rumble Fish (1983), The Cotton Club  (1984), and Jack  (1996). Lane also starred in Eleanor Coppola’s directorial debut, Paris Can Wait (2016).

Lane’s current projects include Ryan Murphy’s eight-episode FX/Hulu hit anthology series, FEUD: Capote Vs. The Swans in the role of Slim Keith. The Netflix limited series A Man in Full co-starring Jeff Daniels premieres May 2. Lane returns as Mom in Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out 2, which will premiere in theaters on June 14. The film Anniversary is in pre-production.

Lane’s stage career began at the legendary La MaMa Experimental Theater at age 6, and over the next five years she performed in New York and toured theater festivals around the world. Additional stage work includes The Roundabout Theatre Company, Joseph Papp at Lincoln Center, and the audience and critic standout at Lincoln Center’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, The Mystery of Love and Sex with Tony Shaloub. 

During the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown, Lane performed Let’s Save the World, penned by Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winner Michael R. Jackson. Produced by the Homebound Project, each short play was streamed over a four-week collective series of events, shot in isolation by each actor in their respective individual starring role. All proceeds benefitted the organization No Kid Hungry.

Lane is fiercely invested in environmental and animal rights causes. Inspired by documentary filmmaker Ashley Avis’s Wild Beauty: Mustang Spirit of the West (2022), Diane is garnering support in favor of H.R.3656 – Wild Horse and Burro Protection Act of 2023. The bill prohibits the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from using or contracting for the use of helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft for gathering horses and burros. She has also been a passionate advocate against climate change and for the preservation of oceans and waterways. Lane successfully raised awareness to help pass the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act, making it illegal to possess, buy, or sell shark fins or any product containing shark fins (H.R. 2811/S. 1106). She has met with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and authored an op-ed in The Washington Post to speak out against offshore drilling and seismic air gun blasting. Diane was honored by Oceana at their annual gala and continues to advocate for the health and welfare of all living things above and below the oceans.
