Elizabeth Téa Pantaleoni was raised in Englewood, New Jersey and New York City. The girl studied at The Putney School and Brearley School. Tea entered Sarah Lawrence College but soon dropped out. As an actress she debuted in the soap opera “Santa Barbara” (1989) with the small role of Lisa DiNapoli which occurred in the series for only six episodes. Leoni continued her career with small roles on the cinema screens, appearing in “Switch” (1991) and “A League of Their Own” (1992). Then, she appeared in the main roles of the sitcoms “Flying Blind” (1992–1993) and “The Naked Truth” (1995–1998). Soon after that, she starred in the blockbuster directed by Mimi Leder, “Deep Impact” (1998) which grossed $350 million at the box office. More, Leoni was nominated in the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards as the Favourite Actress – Sci-Fi. Another success was the lead role alongside Nicolas Cage in the romantic drama film “The Family Man” (2000) directed by Brett Ratner. The film has also significantly increased Tea Leoni’s net worth as the box office grossed $125 million. It is worth to mention the fact that Tea Leoni also won the Saturn Award as the Best Actress for the previously mentioned role.

Tea Leoni was then invited to star alongside Sam Neill and William H. Macy in the science fiction film “Jurassic Park III” (2001) directed by Joe Johnston. Even though the reviews were mixed, the box office grossed over $370 million worldwide. Later, she was in the main cast of the following films: “People I Know” (2002), “Hollywood Ending” (2002), “House of D” (2004) and “Spanglish” (2004) though they were not particularly successful. Despite the negative reviews, the film “Fun with Dick and Jane” (2005) in which Leoni starred alongside Jim Carrey was financially profitable and earned more than $100 million. Furthermore, Leoni appeared in the ensemble cast which was praised by critics after creating the successful heist-comedy film “Tower Heist” (2011) directed by Brett Ratner. Currently, Tea Leoni has a lead role in the political drama television series “Madam Secretary” (2014–present) aired on CBS, for which Leoni was nominated for the People Choice Award as the Favourite Actress in a New TV Series.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, she has been married and divorced twice. From 1991 to 1995, she was married to Neil Joseph Tardio Jr. and from 1997 to 2014 to David Duchovny with whom she has two children. Currently, she is apparently dating the actor Tim Daly.

1Yes, I guess I am bi-coastal.
2I just mean it's very difficult for me to watch my work, in some ways, because I am critical of what I didn't get across or I thought I was making one point.
3Well, I don't find glamour and clothing relevant.
4I was desperate to go back to New York and when 9/11 happened, I feared moving to the bulls-eye and that was very hard because I have a lot of family there and I really had to question what I didn't like about this community.
5Really it was the first time in my life that I recognized that acting is, I'm just going to say it, I am an artist, I have to do this, I have to do this.
6Well what I will tell you is for this movie, I got into probably the best shape of my life.
7I'm not quite ready for a no makeup movie.
8But I've never looked at myself as being particularly funny.
9I dress up for awards, but only if somebody else is going to pay for the clothes. And shop for them, too!
10I've been in a gym probably nine days of my life.
11But I can tell you that the New York that I see now is not the New York that we grew up in. It's not 1973.
12I don't think, there's no possible way for me, anyway, to play a character that I haven't found some sort of sublime compassion for and I related to Deborah on a way that almost, initially, almost in a way maybe someone in the audience might.
13And I thought, you know, I have to say that maybe the whacked out mother is my new favorite role, but I don't want to just do it and become Nurse Ratchett.
14Jim Brooks is a very powerful director and it was a lot of intense work.
15Acting doesn't feel good. It's not comfortable to feel all this stuff, it's not.
16People don't know this, but early in your career, you don't just glide on to The Tonight Show.
17The one thing I think you must do is, as painful as it is as a parent, is listen.
18It's kind of fun to be sexy.
19Sometimes, I feel that Manhattan in particular has gotten really tame and gentrified or something.
20Well, I think again, the worst part of it was just leading up to it, before we got on set, at least for me... dreading this idea that I was just going to suck and I really had strong feelings about that. I just didn't want to be that weak link.
21I'm not a huge fan of my work.
22I have always loathed working out.
23At one point, I had 14 pairs of golf shoes.
24I was one of the most brilliant liars as a child.
25First of all, returning from motherhood, I was looking for something lighter, and I wasn't as much attracted to Kate as I was to the relationship between the two people.
26Shopping turns me off.
27I live by a hill. I began walking it and then I began jogging it and then I began sprinting it.
28I don't mean to be presumptuous that men don't feel this, I don't mean this, but I found that when my child was born, my first child, it felt like my heart broke.
29If I swim in the ocean, I have a shark thought. Not a bad one, but just a little one.
30It was just this interesting, my first, the first time you hear your child in any way criticize you. It's the worst review of your life and it's really relieving to find out that they don't know what they're saying.
31I am not addicted to, attracted to, or neurotically pursuing stardom.
32Hollywood means work and getting yourself out there, and for a while I pooh-poohed that idea. My ego still doesn't get stroked by fame. But I've been guided by people who have told me if you aren't out there, then studios and producers are less likely to pull you in to the projects you might want to do.
33I think getting over opening night, his first opening night of his life, was a huge milestone. And he did it with such grace and flying colors. I'm very proud of him. (about husband David Duchovny's off-Broadway debut).
34We have this incredible cast with Billy Bob Thornton, who is maybe my new favorite person in the world.
35"I love tennis. I love very aggressive tennis, and I think I'm quite good. Golf, well, of course you can drink beer when you play that, but I take it pretty seriously, and I'm quite good at that. And I'm a good swimmer, and I used to compete in windsurfing" (on the challenge of playing an athlete in Spanglish (2004)).
36"Not to sound like a whore, but I've been with...I've worked with...some very attractive men. Nicolas Cage...Al Pacino...Ben Stiller...and Woody Allen".
37David. The best thing about marriage is David's sense of humor. (When asked what is the best thing about marriage to David Duchovny).
38I don't do T&A very well because I haven't got much of either.
1Is a huge fan of fly fishing, an activity she pursues as often as she can.
2In a relationship with Madam Secretary (2014) co-star Tim Daly since summer 2014.

With no experience, she won the lead role but the series never materialized.
8Raised on Manhattan's Upper East Side and sent to exclusive all-girls Brearley School and The Putney School, a progressive boarding school in Vermont. She graduated from Putney in 1984 with the intent on studying anthropology and psychology.
9On October 15, 2008, Leoni and Duchovny confirmed that they had been separated for several months after Duchovny's much publicized sexual addiction. The couple publicly reconciled after Duchovny's rehab period and were seen frequently together, but on June 29, 2011, it was reported the couple had again separated.
10Considered for the role of Melissa Robinson in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994).
11Appears in A League of Their Own (1992), with Geena Davis. Her husband, David Duchovny, played Davis' ex-husband, Jeff Goldblum, on Saturday Night Live (1975).
12Her husband David Duchovny called her for his "Phone a Friend" lifeline when he appeared on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (1999). When she couldn't offer him any help in regards to the question, she simply told him; "You're screwed, honey".
13Was considered for the role of "Rachel" on Friends (1994) (1994-2004).
14She has inherited the stage wardrobe of Sonny Bono. They are a perfect fit requiring no alterations.
