Anne Archer (born August 25, 1947) is an American movie and TV actress. She was born in Los Angeles, California. Her parents were actors; this influenced her strongly as a child. She studied theater arts and succeeded in getting a role opposite Jon Voight in the 1970 movie The All-American Boy. This film and the following she made did not give her the recognition she sought. Her off-Broadway performance in 1981 helped her finally to get roles in the right movies to become a respected actress.

One of the outstanding films she played in was the 1987 thriller Fatal Attraction, in which she had the part of Michael Douglas' wife. Her interpretation earned her an Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress. In 1992, she won another Oscar® for her performance in Patriot Games opposite Harrison Ford.

Probably best remembered for her roles in the movies Fatal Attraction, Patriot Games and Narrow Margin, the last co-starring Gene Hackman, Archer cites her performances in Mojave Moon and Dark Summer as the ones she is currently most proud of. In addition to cinematic releases, she has also played in a number of made-for-TV movies.

Archer married William Davis in 1968, but they later divorced. In 1979, she married Terry Jastrow. Archer has two sons, one from each marriage.
