From the mid 1980’s to late 1990’s, a blonde actress was popular for her tall height of 5 feet and 8 inches, model-turned actress background plus her classy looks, acting potentialities, and her relationship with musician Bruce Springsteen. Yes, it’s no other then ex actress Julianna Phillips, who quits her shining television career in the year 1997. Her age is 54 as of 2014.

 It is said that after her silence divorce with the popular American singer and songwriter Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen in 1989, her idea to stay away from raging media and all sorts of controversy was just to keep a low profile.

She is best known for playing the role of strong and workaholic businesswoman Frankie Ree in the American television drama Sisters (1991-1995). Other most recognized roles of Julianna are from the movies FletchLives (1989) and Big Bully (1996). More wiki on her professional life can be extracted from Wikipedia’s biography on him

Born on May 6, 1960 in Chicago, Illlinios and raised in the waterfront suburbs of Lake Oswego Oregon, Julianna enjoyed a comfortable plus peaceful childhood unlike her then husband bruce springstein. Julianna could taste popularity in her high school i.e. Lake Oswego high school because she was like a dream of every high school boys. She was the gorgeous blue-eyed, slim and fit cheerleader of the high school with fair complexion and picture-perfect face.

On top of that, she was the sixth and last child of insurance executive Bill and housewife Ann. As she was the youngest of them all, it was obvious that she got more care from her parents than any other kids when she was growing up. Plus, she was known as the girl with down to earth and straightforward personality since her childhood with no lies in her mouth and no fear in her eyes.

After she meets with Bruce via Bruce’s tour agent Barry Bell in one of the Bruce’s show, the two popular faces couldn’t resist admiring each other work. Soon, American media circulates the news of love affair between hotshot Bruce and model turned actress Julianna. Then, Julianna was someone who in her own way was perusing her progressing career.

 Finally, the couple marries on May 13, 1985 in Lake Oswego. After that, the marriage gets grand media coverage and newspaper headlines. 

Moreover, after three years of marriage, the couple files for divorce surprising everyone. The couple was seen in many events together supporting each other and nobody thought their relationship would have such a fate. Perhaps, the 11 years of age difference and opposite background between Jullianna and Bruce blocked any efforts from either side to work on inner failures of the marriage and ultimately, made their divorce process easy.

One of the interesting facts about their marriage is that Julianna was successful to keep the popular musician under her radar for almost 4 years despite his non-commitment personality and wild lifestyle.

But the major reason of their divorce is thought to be no other than  Patti Scalfia, an American singer, songwriter and guitarist, who met Bruce in the  early 1980’s for the first time in a bar and since then she was rumored to be dating Bruce. But, after David married Julianna, described-to-be close friends to Bruce, Patti gets free from all the rumors because Bruce upcoming Born in the U.S.A tour with Patti gets cancelled. The tour was expected to bring Bruce and Patti close but Bruce was amazingly in love with Julianna.  

Soon, after Bruce and Julianna’s divorce in the year 1988,   Bruce convinces Patti to join the Tunnel of love Express tour with him. It is said that close Bruce and Patti deeply fell in love with each other during the tour. It was the same year Julianna and Bruce filed the divorce and it was the spring of the same year where the couple separated with each other. Now as of 2014, Bruce and Patti is a married couple with two grown-up sons.

After completing high school, Julianna began working as a model in Manhattan and just in two years, she gets represented by the Elite modeling Company as one of the highest paid model. After that, she appears in a .38 special video and gets immense recognition from viewers which in turn helps her to transition from  a model to  an emerging actress.

Most often asked question about her on the internet is “where is she now??”

It is said that Julianna now resides in Los Angeles and goes on vacation to various cities across the world. Also, since 2006 it was said that she is reading television scripts to kick-off her career but the rumor hasn’t turned to a reality till now.  

If we compare her life with Erikson five stages of psychosocial development, we can see Julianna successfully crossed first six stages namely infancy , early childhood, pre-school, school age, adolescence and young adulthood with positive traits. She is now on 7th middle adulthood stage according to the stages,  and at this stage, adults feel a need to create or nurture things that will outlast them and often the process involves having children or creating positive change to help other people for developing the feeling of usefulness and accomplishment.

Anyway, she has a strong personality to cope with hard situations in life and probably, she is dating someone or enjoying her single life at the present.

Last but not the least, it will be wrong to blame Bruce or Julianna for the end of their popular relationship. Their marriage is just an example of married gone wrong case. Everybody has right to search for love and compatible person and Bruce did that. Julianna has respected his decision as well and move on in her life a long time ago.

Because she hasn't appeared on-screen since the year 1997 and she has no account on social networking sites like twitter, many people unknowingly project Julianna as a dead person. But tha's simply a lack of information.
