As the granddaughter of illustrious author Ernest Hemingway, Mariel appeared predestined to be well known and publicly recognized. However, at the tender age of 13, Mariel became famous in her own right when she made her silver screen debut in "Lipstick." Four years later, her work in Woody Allen's "Manhattan" earned her an Oscar nomination. She has since made 30 films as well as numerous television appearances in series and as a host of environmental and humanitarian documentaries.
Now 47, Mariel is the mother of two daughters: Dree, 22 and Langley, 20. She is also the fond caretaker of anywhere from two to six delightful dogs at a time. For over 20 years, Mariel has been pursuing her passion for yoga and health and is now seen as a voice of holistic and balanced health and well-being. As part of that role she has lead wellness retreats all over America, sharing her insights about movement, home, silence, and nutrition. In 2003, Mariel published her powerful bestselling memoir, Finding My Balance, the insightful and inspiring story of her life's journey as viewed through a lens honed by yoga and meditation. Her highly successful second book, Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside Out (Harper Collins, San Francisco, 2007), is a how-to guide for finding and enhancing personal balance and health through the utilization of self-empowering lifestyle techniques. The book is a valuable boon for those who incorporate Mariel's sage and thoughtful advice. Most recently, Mariel published her third book, Mariel's Kitchen: Simple Ingredients for a Delicious and Satisfying Life, in which she offers you ways to easily and deliciously turn your kitchen into the heart of your home.
Her latest exciting project is Mariel's Kitchen… a company that will produce real food products with a real life message! Mariel believes that caring for the health of the body, mind and spirit is the first step in becoming conscious of the health and well-being of the environment that surrounds us.
