Although the television series was cancelled after eight weeks due to poor ratings, Bello’s career did not diminish. In 1997, she received a guest role in the hit television series “Emergency Room”, for which the team won the Screen Actors Guild Award in the category Best Acting Ensemble in a Drama Series. Appearances in “Emergency Room” increased the popularity of the actress, and her first film role as Kitty in Ben Stiller’s “Permanent Midnight” (1998) followed, starring alongside the director and Elizabeth Hurley. In 2000, Bello landed roles in several feature films, including in the main casts of “Duets” and “Coyote Ugly”. In the latter she created the role of the tough business woman Lil, who operates a Western-style bar in New York City, and for the this role, Bello won a Blockbuster Entertainment Award in the category Best Supporting Actress. Her prospects and net worth were improving.

In 2002, Bello appeared in the drama “Autofocus”, then her breakthrough in the film business she made a year later with the gangster fable “The Cooler” (2003), for which role Bello was critically acclaimed and nominated for numerous film awards, including the Golden Globe in the category of the Best Supporting Actress. Afterwards, Bello starred in the supernatural thriller “Secret Window” (2004) beside Johnny Depp, then for her portrayal of Edie Stall in “A History of Violence” (2005), the actress was praised by critics and nominated for several film awards, including the Golden Globe in the category of the Best Actress in a Drama.

In the summer of 2008, she replaced Rachel Weisz in the fantasy film “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”, followed by minor roles in several movies, before starring in the television series “Prime Suspect” (2010 – 2011). In 2013, she landed roles in the films “Grown Ups 2”, “Prisoners” and “Third Person”.

Most recently, she starred in “Demonic” (2015) by Will Canon, “Bravetown” (2015) by Daniel Duran and “The 5th Wave” (2016) by J Blakeson. Soon, the films “The Confirmation”, “Wait Till Helen Comes” and “Lights Out” with Maria Bello in various roles will be released.

1Maybe, in the end, a modern family is just a more honest family.
2So many actors say you have to find something you like in each character. I've never bought that. I think there are people in the world who are plain mean. Not many, but some.
3I think I take a film because I'm in the process of discovering something about myself.
4I don't think you understand what levels or what fears until you have a child of your own. I mean, I've never loved someone so much and I've never been so afraid in my life. And the truth is I would kill someone, whoever tried to hurt him. I would. I have no doubt about it.
