Jacinda Barrett (August 2, 1972) is an Australian American model-turned-actress. She first became known to audiences as a cast member on The Real World: London before appearing in films such as Ladder 49, The Namesake, The Human Stain, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, Poseidon and The Last Kiss.

Early life and career

Born in Brisbane, Queensland, the daughter of an airport firefighter, Barrett entered and won the annual Dolly Covergirl contest in Australia in 1988, while attending Kenmore State High School, and started modeling at the age of seventeen through Europe. In 1995, she had her first television appearance as a cast member on MTV's The Real World: London; she later attended the British American Drama Academy in Oxford. She made her film debut in 1997 in Campfire Tales.

Barrett appeared in the September 1998 issue of Maxim in an article promoting the new fall television series. Her appearance served to promote her appearance in the NBC primetime soap opera Wind on Water but the show did not last past the first season.

Personal life

Barrett was previously engaged to American comedian Chris Hardwick, host of MTV's Singled Out. On 29 December 2004, she married American actor Gabriel Macht. The couple had their first child, a girl named Satine Anais Geraldine Macht, on 20 August 2007 in Los Angeles. Barrett and Macht appeared together in the film Middle Men and she also had a recurring role in the second season of Macht's TV series, Suits.

Barrett enjoys skydiving, explaining "it gets scarier the more you do it. After a while, you realize you're flinging yourself out of a perfectly good plane for no apparent reason."

On 28 August 2009, Barrett was naturalized as a US citizen at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
