Parker started seriously pursuing a career in acting when she attended the State University of New York at Purchase, where she studied drama and worked with other future actresses. One of her first roles was on television in the soap opera entitled “As the World Turns”. Soon she would get her first major role, in the film called “Dazed and Confused” which starred Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck, which became very popular and started to propel Posey’s career forward. She then appeared in 32 independent films during the 1990s, which include “Personal Velocity”, “Party Girl”, “The House of Yes” and “The Daytrippers”. “The House of Yes” got very positive reviews because of her performance, but she got into trouble transitioning back to mainstream films due to her “Queen of the Indies” title. Regardless, her net worth rose steadily.

In the late 1990s, she starred in various mockumentaries, including “Waiting for Guffman”, and “Best in Show”. She also made an appearance in the film “You’ve Got Mail” starring Tom Hanks, and continued being a part of major films, such as “Scream 3” and “Josie and the Pussycats” in which she was the villain. She also appeared in the television show “Will & Grace”. After working on a few more projects, she appeared in “Superman Returns” as the sidekick of Lex Luthor – the film would go on to be a box office hit. She would then become the lead of 2007’s “The Return of Jezebel James”, but which was cancelled after just three episodes. She would then go back to the indie scene with “Broken English” which brought her numerous nominations. One of her most recent projects was the “Irrational Man” which stars Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix.

Aside from film and television, Parker has made a few stage appearances which started in 2001. She also showed musical prowess in the film “A Mighty Wind”, in which she played the Mandolin. Her voice can be heard on several of Ryan Adams’ songs during the time they were still in a relationship. She’s also a part of the song “I Am Sound” which she plays the mandolin.

For her personal life, not much else is known about her relationships except that she dated Ryan Adams. Posey has also expressed concern about how the independent movement has changed to having more star power compared to before. She had once contemplated on quitting acting because of that, but was given another chance with her recent films.
