Family and Personal Info:
Toni Collette was born in Glebe, a suburb in Sydney, the daughter of Judith (née Cook), a customer-service representative, and Bob Collett, a truck driver. She was born with the surname “Collett”, but added an “e” at the end to be her stage name. In an 2015 episode of Who Do You Think You Are? she discovered that her biological paternal grandfather was an American Chief Petty Officer in theU.S. Navy stationed in Australia during World War II, whose name Toni didn’t know. From an early age, Collette showed a talent for acting. She faked appendicitis when she was eleven, and was so convincing that doctors removed her appendix, although tests showed nothing wrong with it.
She attended Blacktown Girls’ High School until the age of 16, and later attended both the Australian Theatre for Young People and National Institute of Dramatic Art. Her first acting role was onstage in the musical Godspell in Sydney in her early teens.
Collette married musician Dave Galafassi on 11 January 2003. The couple have a daughter, Sage Florence, born on 9 January 2008, and a son, Arlo Robert, born on 22 April 2011.She is a supporter of animal rights and PETA. She urged former Prime Minister John Howard to end the Australian sheep farming practice of mulesing, which many animal rights activists consider cruel.
