Elizabeth and her husband, Simon Curtis, divide their time between West London (England) and Hollywood. The couple has 2 daughters.
In Sex, Lies and Videotapes, Steven Soderburg originally wrote the role of Ann for Elizabeth. Eventually, the role was played by Andie MacDowell.
In 1981, Elizabeth was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Ragtime.
Elizabeth was engaged to both Sean Penn (1983-1984)and Rob Reiner (1989-1990) at different times. Both engagements were broken.
Elizabeth: I was incredibly lucky to work with highly intelligent directors who really cared enormously for actors and were very supportive. Nowadays, Hollywood seems more serious: So much focuses on the business side of things.
Elizabeth: I think that I would definitely characterize myself as a muddle-througher.
