Elisabeth Harnois Age
Elisabeth Harnois age is always difficult to believe as she has that ever-youthful appearance. “Whether it’s a blessing or a curse, I have always played someone like 10 years younger,” the actress once said to the media.
In 2005 when she played opposite the then 16-year-old Evan Rachel Wood, Harnois was between 23 and 24 years old.
“When I was 23 or 24, I was playing 15, opposite Evan Rachel Wood, in a movie called Pretty Persuasion (2005). She was 16 and nobody in a million years would have thought I was that much older than her.”
Elisabeth Harnois Married, Dating Boyfriend
Harnois keeps her romantic life off media attention. Thus, making it incredibly difficult to tell with whom she is in a relationship or if she is even married. Back in a February 2005 interview with People, she revealed that she had been dating a guy (whom she declined to name) for three years.
While she declined to name the guy, she revealed that he was a TV producer. “He works in TV production, and he’s a great guy – that’s all I’ll say. I’m very taken,” she told people. But that was a long time ago, and if peradventure she’s still with that guy, then chances are that they are married.
Unlike other celebs who post about their family on their social media accounts, Harnois never does. A trip to her Twitter account shows that she can get very political and that she’s not a Trump fan at all. Speaking of privacy, her Instagram account is private.
