From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Alexandra Forbes Kerry (born September 5, 1973) is the elder daughter of 2004 US Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.

Her mother is Julia Thorne, who was married to John Kerry from 1970 until 1988. The couple subsequently divorced.

Kerry holds a B.A. from Brown University and an M.F.A. degree from AFI Conservatory. She had a minor acting role in the 2000 movie State and Main, written and directed by David Mamet, and took a part in Mamet's 2004 film Spartan, playing a bartender. She also appeared as herself in the political satire Tanner on Tanner, written by Garry Trudeau and directed by Robert Altman.

In 2004 she wrote and directed a short film, The Last Full Measure.

Kerry's appearance at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival received much media attention as a result of her father's presidential bid and her attire. Flash lighting from cameras reflecting off her body made the fabric of her dress almost transparent, similar to the effect of one-way glass. She wore no brassiere. Normally lit, the dress was not transparent. Nonetheless, critics questioned whether Kerry knew of the effect beforehand. The controversy was brief.

She has a younger sister, Vanessa Kerry.
