Lisa Marie Kubikoff is a prominent American actress and still photographer, most famous for her contribution to the comedy film “Rent Control”, but perhaps generally better known for being the wife of the accomplished British writer and actor Cary Elwes.
Age, Early Life, and Education Background
Lisa Marie Kubikoff was born under the Taurus zodiac sign on 10 May 1970, in the USA, which makes her 52-years-old as of mid-2022. She was born together with her twin sister Janet Kubikoff, who is now an interior designer. Lisa hasn’t revealed the names of her parents to the media, but it’s widely believed that her mother worked as a nurse, and that her father was a chef.
Lisa went to Agoura High School where she studied together with several future notable personalities, including actress Heather Graham, model Beverly Peele, and the filmmaker Shane Stanley who is the creator of Visual Arts Entertainment. She was initially interested in sports, but her focus shifted to photography when she turned 17. Marie matriculated in the early ’90s – it’s unclear whether she went to college or not.
Interests and Hobbies
Marie likes traveling, and has toured many US and European destinations, sometimes accompanying her husband to red carpet events. Her dream travel city is Paris, France.
Her favorite entertainer is Jim Carrey – she previously posted their picture together on Instagram – and her favorite Jim Carrey-starred films are “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Liar, Liar,” and “Yes Man.”
Lisa is a fitness enthusiast who hits the gyms regularly, and follows a strict diet to maintain her slim figure.
She also likes attending parties and celebrity events together with her husband – she was spotted at a costume party together with Elwes in 2021, and posted their pictures on Instagram.
Kubikoff made her film debut in 1985 with her appearance in the movie “Future Hunter,” then took a break from acting, and made a comeback in 1993 in the Erik Greenberg Anjou-written and directed thriller film “The Cool Surface,” which starred Teri Hatcher, Steve Tyler and Robert Patrick. The movie follows the story of a Los Angeles author who falls in love with his neighbor, who is an actress.
In 2003, Kubikoff contributed to the David Eric Brenner-written and directed film “Rent Control” as the still photographer and associate producer. The film stars Carmen Electra, Ryan Browning and Melissa J. Hart and is about a young couple who move to an apartment owned by aunt Agatha, who has recently died – the pair has to keep her death a secret.
Marie’s next role was in 2003’s crime drama, “Wonderland,” which was directed by James Cox and starred Kate Bosworth, Val Kilmer and Lisa Kudrow.
Lisa first met Cary Elwes in 1991 at a chili cooking contest in Malibu, California, and they were instantly attracted to each other. They soon began dating, and announced their engagement in 1997, but didn’t tie the knot on 25 June 2005. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Dominique Elwes on 24 April 2007, born in the Los Angeles-based Cedars Sinai Medical Center. It’s widely believed that Lisa retired from acting to become a housewife after the birth of their daughter.
She completed her 7th grade recently, and her mother took to Instagram, writing ‘Congratulations to our darling Dominique for finishing the 7th grade in the midst of such adversity… We Love you and are so proud of you.’
Marie seemingly shares a good relationship with her in-laws. She is currently residing in Malibu together with her family; their fancy home has a Moroccan and Andalusian-inspired garden that overlooks the Pacific. When her husband was asked during an interview why he preferred the Moroccan theme, he revealed that ‘I spent a lot of my childhood in Southern Spain, and my father used to take us to Morocco a lot. So I created a space that reminded me of my childhood.’
Height, Weight, and Physical Appearance
Lisa is of the white ethnicity; she has brown eyes and long brown hair, weighs approximately 132lbs (61kg), and stands 5ft 5ins (1.66m) tall.
Marie has worked in many projects as an actress, producer, and photographer, which has earned her a good sum. Sources estimate that her net worth is over $2 million as of 2022. On the other hand, her husband is an acclaimed actor who has featured in many successful projects, including “Another Country,” “Yesterday’s Hero,” and many others, and has accumulated a fortune of approximately $8 million, according to authoritative sources.
