‘Coyote Ugly’ Cast: Where Are They Now?

Tyra Banks, Maria Bello, Bridget Moynahan, Piper Perabo, and Izabella Miko made their movie debut as the booze-slinging, quick-moving Coyote Ugly girls twenty years ago. See what Violet Sanford and company are up to now, 20 years and over $110 million at the box office later.

Piper Perabo/Violet Sanford

Perabo made a name for herself as the movie’s leading lady, aspiring singer Violet Sanford, who relocates from New Jersey to New York City to pursue her goals and eventually joins the Coyote Ugly group. Following the film’s release, Perabo worked steadily in the industry before landing her role in Covert Affairs, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. She married the director-producer Stephen Kay in 2014, and her most recent television appearance was on the show Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.

Adam Garcia/Kevin O’Donnell

The film’s casting director asked him to go to Los Angeles for an audition after she saw him perform in the Saturday Night Fever musical in London’s West End. The Australian actor’s role as Violet’s lover, Kevin, opened several possibilities for him. He had his own dancing moment at the Coyote Ugly bar before appearing on Camp and The Code. He has two kids and has been married to Nathalia Chubin since 2015.

John Goodman/Bill Sanford

By 2000, Goodman had become a household celebrity on both the big and small screens. He played Violet’s adoring but overbearing father, who discouraged her new career after spotting a lewd photo of her in the newspaper (though he later changed his tune). Since then, Goodman has continued to work hard, appearing in numerous films and TV shows, most recently in the ABC Roseanne revival, The Conners. Since their union in 1989, he and Annabeth Hartzog have had one daughter.

Maria Bello/Lil

Bello’s Lil, the gruff but fair owner of the bar, gave Violet her chance, took it away from her, then helped her sort of get it back. Bello, who was then well known for her work on ER, has since moved on to roles in movies like A History of Violence and television shows like Goliath and NCIS. The actress has a kid with her ex-boyfriend, playwright Dan McDermott, and is engaged to chef Dominique Crenn.

Izabella Miko/Cammie

The Polish actress’s breakthrough performance in Coyote Ugly led to roles in music videos and movies like Save the Last Dance 2 and Step Up All In. Her most recent TV appearance was on the show Hunters.

Tyra Banks/Zoe

When Coyote Ugly was released, Banks had already made a name for herself in the modeling industry. She starred as the bartender, Zoe. In a 2018 interview with PEOPLE, she said she’s “dying” to make a sequel. ‘I only need to work with Mr. Jerry Bruckheimer or obtain the rights from him in order to produce it’. Banks, a mother to 4-year-old York, was most recently introduced as the show’s new co-producer and host.

Bridget Moynahan/Rachel

Model Moynahan’s debut feature film role was in Coyote Ugly, which came out around the same time that she joined the cast of Sex and the City as Mr. Big’s wife, Natasha. She has since appeared in shows including Six Degrees and Blue Bloods, and she and her ex-husband Tom Brady have a kid named Jack. She married New York-based entrepreneur Andrew Frankel in 2015.

Melanie Lynskey/Gloria

Before playing Gloria, Violet’s BFF from New Jersey in Coyote Ugly, Lynskey had a number of other jobs under her belt. The New Zealander has starred in a variety of films and television shows, including Two and a Half Men, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and the newest miniseries, Mrs. America. She has a daughter with Jason Ritter, with whom she is currently engaged. She is currently playing the character of Shauna in Showtime’s Yellowjackets.
