Though she was born in Panama, she left when she was only two months old and moved to London and then Rio de Janeiro where she learned to speak Portuguese. When Jordana was ten, she moved to New York City. Jordana Brewster studied at the Convent of the Sacred Heart and the Professional Children's School and attended Yale University.
One of her favorite travel getaways is Punta del Este in Uruguay, as her parents rent a house there.
Jordana Brewster has appeared on the soap "All My Children." Her film debut was the horror teen flick "The Faculty." Other roles followed, including gigs on "The Invisible Circus" and the mini-series "The 60's." But it was her role on "The Fast and the Furious" and its sequels that launched her into stardom. Jordana said, "It's really hard to get tired of doing something that's so fun, so I can't imagine that I'll get tired of making these movies any time soon. If we get to 'Fast Ten,' I'll be all for it!" (complex.com).
Jordana Brewster has also been seen on "Dark Blue" and the reboot of "Dallas."
Jordana said of her Yale degree in comparison to her action role persona, "I'd love to be a Bond girl. I mean, if you're going to be stereotyped, there are worse things to be stereotyped as. Women always want to be what they're not: if you're the pretty girl, you want to be the quirky girl. If you're the smart girl, you want to be the pretty girl" (maxim.com).
Jordana Brewster said of working, "I've always been kind of picky, because I've always been interested in lots of different things. I chose to take three years off and go to school, and that helped keep me sane. Hollywood can make you crazy, if all you're thinking about is your next job" (collider.com).
Jordana Brewster has dated Mark Wahlberg, Derek Jeter and Mark McGrath, but finally settled down and married producer Andrew Form, whom she met while on the set of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." Regarding dating, she said, "I went to an all-girls school, and then I started working when I was 15, so I'm not very socially apt when it comes to dating" (askmen.com).
