Haley Bennett is “Daddy’s girl”. She resided with her father in Ohio since she was 7. She moved to that state from Florida after her parents’ divorce. He ran a car store, was very active and didn’t stay in one and the same town for long, so Haley changed schools very often. He taught her to drive big massive cars and ride horses.

She resided with her father for some time and then moved again with her mother. It was Mrs. Bennett, who taught the girl to love and to understand art. She supported her idea to become an actress, and after Haley’s graduation from school, they moved to Los Angeles.
Do you remember the musical comedy “Music and Lyrics”, which aired on the big screen in 2007? It is the story about a former pop star Alex Fletcher (he was played by legendary Hugh Grant) and his home keeper Sophie Fisher (she was depicted by godlike Drew Barrymore). Fletcher and Fisher created the new hit song – and fell in love, of course. The great movie was the screen debut of a young beautiful actress Haley Bennett, who acted as Cora Corman, a young pop-star.
As for now, Haley’s film list is full of hits. She played the main female role in an action movie “The Magnificent Seven” and acted opposite stellar Emily Blunt in “The Girl on the Train”.

Hayley Bennett was born in the sunniest state of Florida in January 1988. She spent the first years of her life in the town of Fort Myers, but then her father moved her to Stowe, OH, where Haley attended a high school for some time, till she moved back to Florida. There Haley fell in love with theater. She visited acting classes and attended music lessons (which later gave her an opportunity to perform songs in her films by herself).
After graduation, she made up her mind to become an actress and moved to LA. Her talent and unique tender beauty were immediately noticed, and she was cast in the film “Music and Lyrics”.
