Tara Reid (born November 8, 1975) is an American actress. She is known for her roles in the films The Big Lebowski (1998), Urban Legend(1998), American Pie (1999), American Pie 2 (2001), National Lampoon’s Van Wilder (2002), My Boss’s Daughter (2003), and Alone in the Dark (2005).
Reid was romantically linked to Carson Daly starting in early 2000. Daly made a cameo appearance in, Josie and the Pussycats (also starring Reid), in which he jokes while attempting to kill Reid’s character that the two could have had a romantic relationship given different circumstances. In June 2001, Reid and Daly broke off their engagement. She previously had dated Russian hockey star Sergei Fedorov. In the late 1990s, she dated actor Steve Burton and still is close to him and his family. She briefly dated American football players Tom Brady, Jerome Bettis, Jeremy Shockey, Kyle Boller, Kevin Mawae, and tennis player Mark Philippoussis.
On the night of November 4, 2004, photographs surfaced of Reid from the red carpet at Puff Daddy’s 35th birthday party at Cipriani’s Restaurant in New York City, when her dress fell, exposing her left breast.
In October 2006, Reid acknowledged in an interview with Us Weekly that she had liposculpting. In the interview she discusses how her plastic surgery “went wrong” and also explains why she decided to have plastic surgery done, saying that her breasts were uneven and that she wanted a “six pack” for a new movie role. The liposuction resulted in deformity. In the same interview, Reid’s new plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Svehlak, reported that he performed a procedure called a “doughnut mastopexy” to correct her original augmentation, and performed additional liposuction in hopes to even out her stomach.
