Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Prinze born April 14th in 1977.
Sarah was born in New York City. She is the only child of Rosellen (née Greenfield), a nursery school teacher and her father Arthur Gellar, a garment worker. Both of her parents were Jewish, though her family had a Christmas tree during the holidays while she was growing up. In 1984, when she was 7 years old, her parents divorced and she was brought up solely by her mother on the Upper East Side. She graduated from Fiorello LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts in 1995. Sarah was estranged from her father until his death from liver cancer on October 9, 2001.

At the age of four, she was spotted by an agent in a restaurant in Uptown Manhattan. Two weeks later, she auditioned for a part in An Invasion of Privacy, a made-for-television film starring Valerie Harper, Carol Kane and Jeff Daniels. At the audition, Sarah read both her own lines and those of Harper, impressing the directors enough to cast her in the role. She subsequently appeared in a controversial television commercial for Burger King, in which her character criticized McDonald's and claimed to eat only at Burger King. This led to a lawsuit by McDonald's. As a child, Sarah also modeled for magazines.
I of course know her best as "Buffy The Vampire Slayer".
As of September 2008, Sarah's films have grossed in the US for $627.3 million. Sarah's most successful starring role is in The Grudge, which opened with US$39.1 million opening weekend and grossed over US$110 million in the U.S.
Sarah is married to Freddie Prize Jr. They have a daughter named Charlotte Grace Prinze, born in September 2009.
Sarah has a black belt in taekwondo.
She also has revealed that she suffers from a phobia of being buried alive. Saying "I really fear graveyards and I have a big phobia of being buried alive. It was really hard being an ass-kicking vampire slayer when you are afraid of graves."
Geller said she was born Jewish but she doesn't believe in any organized religion now.
Sarah is an active advocate for various charities, including breast cancer research, Project Angel Food, Habitat for Humanity and CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty
