At the tender age of three, Peet made her stage debut by leaping onto the stage during a play. To her credit, she only pursued acting as a hobby after getting her start in it so early in life. Her first acting teacher was Uta Hagen, with whom she trained for four years while pursuing a degree in history at Columbia University. Meanwhile, she appeared in a production of Clifford Odets’s “Awake and Sing” off Broadway. The residual checks she earned from a Skittles candy commercial helped her get by while she was working as a waitress and auditioning.


The Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode “Hot Pursuit,” in which she played a character eerily reminiscent of Patty Hearst, was one of her earliest credits. The drama picture Animal Room (1995), starring Neil Patrick Harris and Matthew Lillard, was her first cinematic role.

Her co-stars were George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer in the 1996 film. She also appeared in the romance comedy She’s the One, which starred Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz, as a supporting player in that year.

She also was featured as a waitress in Jerry Seinfeld’s first encounter with her on Seinfeld’s eighth-season finale (“The Summer of George”). Simply Irresistible, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and Peet, was released in 1999. Chris, the ex-girlfriend of Sean Patrick Flanery’s character, Tom, was played by her in the film.

In 2000, Peet appeared in Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry’s mafia comedy The Whole Nine Yards. It was his first appearance in a widely distributed feature picture. She played Jill St. Claire, a character who appeared in a naked scene in the film. The film earned a number of positive reviews from reviewers and raked in $106,371,651 at the global box office. Peet’s performance was dubbed “Perfect” by critic Roger Ebert because it “perfectly matches what is required, and then adds a degree of careless delight.”
