Julie Bowen’s Biography
The actress began life as a tot born on born March 3, 1970, and named Julie Bowen Luetkemeyer in Baltimore, Maryland, as the second of three girls born by her mother Suzanne (née Frey) and her father John Alexander Luetkemeyer, Jr. who worked as a commercial real estate developer.
She had her growing up in Ruxton-Riderwood, Maryland where she attended Calvert School, later moved over to Garrison Forest School, Roland Park Country School and finally St. George’s School in Newport, Rhode Island. After high school, Julie Bowen went to study Italian Renaissance at Brown University where she graduated from with a BA degree in ‘Renaissance Studies’. During her time in college, and being an innate actress, she played roles in Guys and Dolls, Stage Door, and Lemon Sky as well as a lead role in the film Five Spot Jewel.
After her studies at Brown University, Julie went to the Empire State (New York) and studied the more at the Actor’s Studio as she was desirous of perfecting her skills as an actress. While still a student at the studio, words went out about her talent and she got a role in a 1992 soap opera titled Loving.
Following this came another role in an episode of a 1993 college drama titled Class 96. She then caught the attention of the public with a lead role in Daughters, a 1994 television film, followed by her role as the love interest of the main character in Happy Gilmore (1996).
Julie Bowen went on to do more films with a recurring role in ER from 1998 to 1999 as Roxanne Please. The year 2000 marked her debut in television series when she played Carol Vessey a high school teacher in Ed which ran from 2000 to 2004. Another of her notable work was her appearance on the August 31, 2010 episode of Celebrity Jeopardy.
Since the beginning of her career, more especially after her big break, Julie Bowen has been consistently making appearances in one film or television series. Her most recent work includes Marcie Strong in the film Life of the Party in addition to voicing Gwen in LA to Vegas in episode: “The Affair.” As the years continue to roll by, we expect to see Julie in more screen projects because we can’t just have enough of her.
The actress has seen more good times in her career than bad (if at all any) for which she has been well rewarded with a net worth of $16 million. Julie is very much still active in the industry so with more works to come her way, expect her net worth to rise further.
Husband – Scott Phillips
Bowen’s married life was an encouragement for other actors, actresses, and corporate celebrities alike, being in an industry or marrying someone in an industry where divorce and spousal infidelity cases are rife. At a time, it seemed there will be a story of “they lived together happily ever after” but the same cannot be said of them now.
Julie Bowen married Scott Philips on September 9, 2004. Their marriage saw to the birth of three kids all boys; Oliver who was born on April 10, 2007, and twin boys John and Gustav who were born on May 8, 2009.
Hearts were broken when in February 2016 news of her filling for divorce from her husband of 13 years began circulating. When concerned fans began asking what could have gone wrong between a mother of three and her doting husband, revelations were made that they had been living separately since 2016 which laid credence to Julie attending the 2016 Emmys alone.
Well, she set the date for the final divorce to be December 17, 2017, while citing the “irksome” irreconcilable differences as the bane for calling it quits with her husband. She prayed the courts to grant her and her soon to be ex-husband joint legal and physical custody of their 3 boys while at the same time will not be burdened with spousal support.
Coming on the heels of their official divorce date it was published that Julie and Scott were trying to keep things together for the sake of their sons, but their last-minute attempt wasn’t potent to withstand the debacle of their once happy union. It is official, Julie Bowen is now a divorced mum of three.
The television star like many others in her line of profession had some cosmetic procedures worked on her to improve her looks. She was said to have had lip fillers augmentation, contouring with fillers done on her cheeks, and going by the new flawless look of her skin, Julie probably had some laser resurfacing or micro needling with PRP or stem cells worked on her.
