Ethan Green Hawke was born on 6 November 1970 in Austin Texas. His parents were students at the University of Texas at the time but divorced when Ethan was 5. His mother raised him alone for the next five years, moving around the country, until she remarried in 1981 and the family settled in Princeton Junction, New Jersey. He attended West Windsor-Plainsboro High School and then transferred to the Hun School of Princeton and it was while he was there that he began taking acting classes at the McCarter Theatre on the Princeton campus. His early ambition had been to be a writer, but as a result of the acting lessons and appearances in student productions he persuaded his mother to allow him to attend an audition for a role in a sci-fi teen adventure, Explorers (1985). He got the part (alongside River Phoenix) but although the movie was favourably reviewed, it met with little commercial success which discouraged Hawke from pursuing further movie roles for a few years. He was admitted to the prestigious Carnegie-Mellon University to study theater but his studies were interrupted when he won his breakthrough role opposite Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society (1989) and he didn't complete his degree. His subsequent acting career was a mix of theater work (earning a number of awards and nominations, including a Tony nomination for his role in The Coast of Utopia at the Lincoln Center in New York), and a mix of "serious" and more commercial movies, notably Gattaca (1997) (where he met his first wife, Uma Thurman) and Training Day (2001). Meanwhile he also pursued his childhood ambition and has written two novels and several screenplays. Ryan Shawhughes-Hawke (18 June 2008 - present) 2 children Uma Thurman (1 May 1998 - 20 July 2004) (divorced) 2 children Trivia Attended West Windsor-Plainsboro High School in central New Jersey, but is not pictured in the yearbook (1984-1986). He has 2 children, daughter Maya Thurman-Hawke (born July 8, 1998) and son Roan Thurman-Hawke (aka Levon Green Hawke) (born January 15, 2002), with Uma Thurman. Graduated from the Hun School of Princeton. [1988] Published his first novel, "The Hottest State," in 1996 (the novel sold for $400,000 to Little, Brown and Company). Was in a production of "Great Expectations" at West Windsor Plainsboro High School. Was accepted by Carnegie-Mellon University, School of Drama in Pittsburgh, PA, but dropped out after only 5 months.

His cat appeared in the Lisa Loeb music-video "Stay", which he directed. Has appeared in two film adaptations of William Wharton novels: Dad (1989) and A Midnight Clear (1992). He was the original choice to play FBI Agent Will Graham in Red Dragon (2002), but turned the role down to take time off from making movies. His parents were University of Texas students when Ethan was born, and they separated when he was three. Says that he is constantly mistaken for Mark McGrath from the band Sugar Ray so often that he signs autographs as "Mark McGrath" and, apparently, the same thing happens to Mark McGrath who, in turn, signs autographs as "Ethan Hawke" to fans. Met and became friends with River Phoenix during the making of Explorers (1985). When he was in the seventh grade, he played "Lon" in West Windsor-Plainsboro junior high school production of the play "Meet Me in St. Louis".

Stepbrother Patrick Powers is a Green Beret who served a six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan, and is currently (late 2006/early 2007) serving a six-month tour in Iraq. Turned down the part of Bobby Mercer in Four Brothers (2005). He loved the script but could not commit to it because of scheduling conflicts. The part eventually went to Mark Wahlberg. His first acting role was at McCarter Theater in Princeton, New Jersey at age 12. His mother is a strict vegetarian and animal rights activist. Is a big fan of the band Wilco. Reds (1981) and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) are his favorite movies. To prepare for his role in the film version of Hamlet he spent the summer before filming attending three study sessions a week with a friend who had played the part on the stage. Took a year off acting after Training Day (2001) to complete his novel Ash Wednesday. Twice during his 20s he took a two-year leave of absence, once to go to NYU and study English (he dropped out when a part came up), and then to write a novel. In Before Sunset (2004) (which he co-wrote with Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater), Hawke's character Jesse is in a failing marriage with a woman he married because she had become pregnant. Soon after the film's release, Hawke divorced his real-life wife Uma Thurman, whom he had married while she was pregnant with their first child.
