Early Life and Career
Very little is known about Elsie’s family, childhood, and education. It is known that she grew up with a younger sister but little else. She quickly pursued a career in modelling and signed with agencies such as LA Models and Wilhelmina, two popular modelling agencies in the US which have influence all around the world.
These companies allowed her to gain exposure and modelling opportunities, leading her to be featured in the publication “Playboy” magazine, the men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine was created by Hugh Hefner, which became popular for its focus on nude or semi-nude models known as Playmates establishing it as one of the world’s best known brands. At one point, the publication was considered one of the most prestigious in the world and an achievement when it came to print modelling. Her appearance in the publication increased Elsie’s popularity significantly, and soon more opportunities started coming her way.
Video Appearances and Acting
In 2013, Hewitt gained one of her first video-related appearances in a music video for “Underwater” by Garrett Lodge, featuring her alongside the artist and directed by Michael Easterling. She then got into an acting career, working on the independent film “Teenage Badass”, which follows the story of a band wanting to make it big as they get a chance to perform on the local news.
The following year she was cast in the horror comedy film entitled “Mostly Ghostly: Have You Met My Ghoulfriend”, which is a sequel to the film “Mostly Ghostly: Who Let the Ghosts Out?” The film is based on the book of the same name written by R. L. Stine, and is the second installment of the “Mostly Ghostly” film series, broadcast on the Disney Channel and was released on DVD. One of her latest projects is the 2018 web television series entitled “Turnt”, which follows several characters as they navigate through high school. It was aired through Facebook Watch which is a video on demand service owned by Facebook, and was intended to rival various other web television service platforms.
Ex-Boyfriend Ryan Phillippe
Elsie’s popularity increased significantly when she became romantically involved with actor Ryan Phillippe, who earned fame during the 1990s acting in various popular films during this period, including “I Know What you Did Last Summer” and “Cruel Intentions”. In the 2000s, he continued his career with film work, appearing in “Flags of Our Fathers”, “Breach”, “Crash”, and “The Lincoln Lawyer”. In 2010, he portrayed the Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Greg Marinovich in the film entitled “The Bang-Bang Club”. One of his most recent projects is the television show “Shooter”, which airs in the USA Network.
In recent years, he’s been more focused on directing and producing, working on the final season of the critically acclaimed show “Damages”. His directorial debut was the independent film “Catch Hell”, and he’s also started his own production company called Lucid Films. He’s also been known for several high profile romantic relationships throughout his career – he dated actress Reese Witherspoon in the late 1990s, prior to their work in “Cruel Intentions”, and they married in 1999 but divorced in 2006. They had two children and have joint custody of them. Other notable relationships he’s been in include with actress Abbie Cornish and model Alexis Knapp.
Personal Life and Assault Issue
For her personal life, it is known that Hewitt began a relationship with Phillippe sometime in 2016, after he had just broken-off an engagement with law student Paulina Slagter. After a few months, she started claiming that she had become a victim of physical abuse from Ryan, showcasing photos of herself with bruises, abrasions, and other injuries. She mentioned that her boyfriend had started to go out of control through the use of several drugs such as cocaine and steroids. The injuries occurred after the two had broken up when she then returned to his house to collect her items, only to be thrown down the stairs before being assaulted.
She went to a nearby hospital after she was thrown out of his house, and a police report led to a temporary protection order. She filed a lawsuit against the actor, accusing him of assault, and claiming that he had become addicted to drugs and was monitoring her day to day activities. However, the claims have never been proven to be true, as according to other sources, Elsie was the one who was refusing to leave his house after they had broken up, and was being escorted out when she fell down the stairs. He denied all of her accusations and past relationships proved that he had no propensity for violence. All of Elsie’s claims were later proven false.
