A Dream Childhood
Born on August 29, 1971 in Sarasota, Florida, Carla Gugino’s age is 45. Her parents separated when she was just two years old, after which she lived alternately in her father’s house in Sarasota and her mother’s house in Paradise, California. Gugino says about her upbringing, “I lived in a teepee in Northern California and a van in Big Sur. With my dad, I lived in a beautiful house with a swimming pool and a tennis court and went to Europe for the summers. So I feel like I lived two childhoods.” Gugino worked for a while as a teenage model and also took acting classes. She started supporting herself financially at the age of 16.

Taking up Meaty Roles

This led to her getting the chance to act in films like Troop Beverly Hills and Son in Law. Gugino always chose to take on more substantial roles in which she could sink her teeth into, rather than in big budget blockbusters where she was just an ornamental piece. Since then, Gugino has acted in films like This Boy’s Life, Jaded, Snake Eyes, the Spy Kids franchise, Sin City, Night at the Museum, American Gangster, Woman in Trouble, New Year’s Eve, San Andreas, and Wolves.
A Fine Actress

She has also done work in theater and has acted in plays such as After the Fall, Suddenly Last Summer, and Desire Under the Elms. Her performance in Desire Under the Elms impressed critics tremendously with The New York Times declaring, “Gugino displays a depth and range of expression that I cannot imagine any other actress achieving with such blazing honesty and wrenching truth. She’s simply magnificent.”

They have not gotten married despite their long time together, about which Gugino said in 2009, “[Marriage] isn’t important for us. We like being boyfriend and girlfriend; there’s something sexy and fun about that. We’re very much about, ‘There’s nothing holding us here other than our desire to be together.’” She is very proud of her apartment in New York City. Carla Gugino’s house is very open concept, with high ceilings and a kitchen that opens to the living room.
