Elizabeth Berkley’s parents were Jere, a gift basket business owner, and Fred Berkley, a lawyer, and she was raised in the Conservative tradition of Judaism and became bat mitzvah. Elizabeth graduated from North Farmington High School in 1990, but a strong interest in dancing at a very young age saw her appear in several ballets and musicals, including “Swan Lake”, in 1983.

Elizabeth Berkley was actually a model for Elite before pursuing an acting career. She made her debut on television with the film “Frog” in 1997, and has subsequently appeared in more than 30 movies, over 25 TV shows and series, and in several theatre productions.  The film “Showgirls” directed by Paul Verhoeven and released in 1995 earned Elizabeth a couple of interesting awards with a humorous nature: Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress and Golden Raspberry Award for Worst New Star. In “Showgirls”, Elizabeth portrayed a dancer named Nomi Malone. However, then for her performance in the 1996 comedy film “The First Wives Club”, Berkley received NRB Award for Best Cast.

Elizabeth Berkley has performed in many movies which have increased her net worth: “Molly & Gina” (1994), “Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas” (1994), “Taxman” (1999), “Becoming Dick” (2000), “The Shipment” (2001), “Meet Market” (2008), “The Butler`s in Love” (2008), “Women in Trouble” (2009), “Lucky Christmas” (2011). In “Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style”, Berkley performed Jessie Spano, and this role made Berkley very famous. It also helped Elizabeth to enlarge her net worth.

Elizabeth Berkley’s net worth has been boosted by her television performances, too. Her debut on television was in “Gimme a Break!” (1986), and then in “Silver Spoons” (1986). However, her more notable appearances were in “Day by Day” (1988), “The Hogan Family” (1990), “Life Goes On” (1990), “Baywatch” (1992), “The Twilight Zone” (2002), “Brother`s Keeper” (1999), “Without a Trace” (2004), “Melissa & Joey” (2014). In “CSI: Miami”, Elizabeth portrayed Julia Winston. In total, she appeared in nine episodes which reached the top 10 in the Nielsen ratings chart, and certainly added considerable revenues to Elizabeth Berkley’s net worth.

In her personal life, Elizabeth married Greg Lauren, an occasional actor in 2003. Greg is best known for performances in ”The Young and the Restless”, “Friends & Family”, “Boogie Nights” and “The Wedding Planner”.

An interesting fact about Elizabeth Berkley is that she has eyes with different colours: one is half green and half brown, and the other one is all green, a condition called heterochromia. Elizabeth is known to be an activist for animals` rights. She was also an activist in “Lettuce Be Lean” campaign which gave vegetarianism prominence. To show her support, Elizabeth donned a $600 dress made of collard greens.

  • [on her role in New Girl (2011)] I love new adventures. Such a thrill still to pull up to a Hollywood studio. I’m always grateful. And happy I’m not jaded. I’ve seen it all. Been through it all and I can honestly say…. I still love it.
  • [on her role in Showgirls (1995), shortly before its release] I knew I had to play this role. No question. The minute I read it. I read it, and I couldn’t put it down. And I didn’t stop talking about it.
  • [on Showgirls (1995), shortly before its release] First of all, to portray this woman any other way would be a lie. This is what she does. I mean, my feeling is sexuality, people who have a problem with it are living in shame, so that’s their problem. All I know is that this will help people feel more free about themselves, I think, and, um, I see nothing harmful in it. It’s a wonderful message about going after what you want.
  • Not only am I grateful for my family, but there’s a real love I have for growing up Jewish, and where I grew up, because there’s a foundation that it’s given me in these crazy kind of worlds that I might come across.
  • [about Lauren Hutton, in “Style Makeover”, Volume 13, Number 9, Fall 2006] Women shine when they are at their most natural, and Lauren Hutton has a certain timelessness I admire. She knows what works for her.
  • [11/23/05] The first thing I want to say is that I think that Threshold (2005) is one of the best new shows out there, which is one of the reasons I wanted to join this amazing cast. Barbara Nance, the writer of this episode, created an incredible, strong female character who I knew I would have a lot of fun playing. There are fight scenes, there is glamor, and there’s this fun cat-and-mouse game between me and Brian Van Holt, who plays Cavennaugh. All the dynamics were in place. But what was fun was when Carla called me not knowing that they had offered it, and even though we only have a couple of scenes together, we were both so excited. Across the board, the cast is amazing. The only other guest spots I’ve done in the last couple of years were on shows that were already established, like Without a Trace (2002) and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000) and NYPD Blue (1993), so it was fun to be a part of something from the beginning.
  • [on working with high-profile directors] I’m very grateful, because a lot of actors would kill to work with any one of them. It’s been a very conscious choice on my part to work with the best – even if it was taking a small supporting role. After Showgirls (1995), I really wanted to surround myself with the best people. I wanted to build it that way instead of doing flashy roles just like “Showgirls”, which would have hurt me.
  • The First Wives Club (1996) gave me a certain level of confidence. Because I was working with these three women – Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton – who as women have been through every high and low. Goldie especially took me under her wing and was really supportive. She told me, “I don’t like the way you were directed in that movie [Showgirls (1995)], but there’s something there that you can’t deny. So you just keep doing what you’re doing and someone will get it, and someone will show the real you, and not just some idea of you”.
  • [on making Roger Dodger (2002)] I really loved it. On the set, it was like being part of a real family. Everybody was there because they wanted to be and not because of some paycheck – there were no dressing rooms or big trailers; you’d get ready in a bathroom. Here’s this $2-million movie that could have gone nowhere or everywhere. But it’s one of the most special experiences that I’ve ever had. I want more similar experiences. I’m not “Showgirl” – that’s the point!
  • Ever since those reviews for Showgirls (1995), it’s like I was that woman in “The Scarlet Letter”. Except that instead of having to wear the letter “A” for adulteress, I was condemned to wear an “S” for “showgirl”.


  • Good friends with Carla Gugino.
  • Auditioned for the role of Rennie in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989), but lost out to Jensen Daggett.
  • Has started her own website, www.ask-elizabeth.com, which helps young girls and young women with the problems they deal with and their experiences growing up. [2006]
  • Getting great reviews for her performance as “Bonnie” in the Off-Broadway production of “Hurlyburly”, New York. [June 2005]
  • Gave birth to her 1st child at age 39, a son Sky Cole Lauren on July 20, 2012. Child’s father is her husband, Greg Lauren.
  • Expecting her first child with husband Greg Lauren [March 5, 2012].
  • In 2006, she founded a self help group for young girls called Ask Elizabeth, in which she helps girls discuss problems and ask questions to each other which they would usually feel uncomfortable sharing with others.
  • Her first book, entitled “Ask Elizabeth: Real Answers to Everything You Secretly Wanted to Ask About Love, Friends, Your Body… and Life in General”, was released on March 22, 2011. It ties in with the self help program she founded in 2006.
  • Good friends with Lauren Bush Lauren.
  • Attended the prestigious Cranbrook-Kingswood School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, at the same time as actress Selma Blair. Another former student was Jaime Ray Newman.
  • After Showgirls (1995), she got a degree in English Literature from UCLA and entered into the United Talent Agency.
  • Was advised by her manager not to do Roger Dodger (2002). She ignored him and decided to do the film because she loved the script.
  • Good friends with Jennifer Beals. They each appeared in a Joe Eszterhas-written film (Berkley: Showgirls (1995); Beals: Flashdance (1983)), and they appeared together in Roger Dodger (2002).
  • In the early 1990s, a 12-inch doll was made of her as her character, Jessie Spano, from Saved by the Bell (1989). The same was done for the other cast members.

  • Once sat next to a man on an international flight who watched Showgirls (1995) on his in-seat video screen and never recognized her.
  • The producers of Saved by the Bell (1989) created the role of Jessie Spano for her when they could not choose between her and Tiffani Thiessen for the role of Kelly Kapowski.
