About Bebe Buell

  • Web Link(s):

Beverle Lorence "Bebe" Buell (born July 14, 1953) is an American fashion model and singer, and Playboy magazine's November 1974 Playmate of the Month. She is also known for dating rock musicians, and her social relationships with musical and cultural icons across four decades. She is actress Liv Tyler's mother from a brief relationship with Aerosmith vocalist Steven Tyler. In 2001, she wrote an autobiography (with Victor Bockris) titled Rebel Heart: An American Rock and Roll Journey. The book was a New York Times bestseller. The paperback was issued in 2002. Filmmaker Cameron Crowe stated in interviews about his 2000 movie Almost Famous that he based the film's Penny Lane character (played by Kate Hudson) on two women he met during the early 1970s — Bebe Buell and Geraldine Edwards. He said he created some of Penny's dialogue from statements Buell had made in interviews over the years. The majority of the character was based on Geraldine Edwards, however. Buell was born in Portsmouth, Virginia, the daughter of Dorothea Johnson, who founded the Protocol School of Washington, and Harold Lloyd Buell. Buell was discovered by modeling agency executive, Eileen Ford after high school
