Biography and career Edit
Jenette Goldstein was born in Los Angeles, California to a Jewish family. She was raised in Beverly Hills. Her parents were fans of the theater, which led them to enroll Jenette in fine arts-oriented schools. She went to the same high school as Angelina Jolie, Michael Klesic, Nicolas Cage, Corben Bernsen, Lenny Kravitz, David Schwimmer, Jonathan Silverman, and Richard Dreyfuss. Through her youth, Goldstein competed in citywide drama competitions. After graduating from high school, Goldstein studied at London's Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, and at Circle in the Square Theater in New York City.
Goldstein's first film role was as Colonial Marine Vasquez in James Cameron's Aliens, along with Mark Rolston. Since then, she has been a frequent collaborator with Cameron, appearing as John Connor's ill-fated foster mother in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, (with Xander Berkeley as her on-screen husband), and as an Irish immigrant mother in Titanic. Goldstein and her Aliens co-star Rolston also reunited in Lethal Weapon 2, which also starred Dean Norris and Nestor Serrano.
Since 2009, Goldstein has been the owner of Jenette Bras, a store specialized in large-size bras.
