Biography

Still in college when she made her movie debut as Steve Martin's daughter in the 1991 hit Father of the Bride, Williams seemed poised to become the next big ingenue. But her later projects failed to propel her into superstardom, although she did win critical acclaim in 1996 for her performance on the short-lived drama Relativity. In 2001, she landed a supporting role on the family sitcom According to Jim as Jim Belushi's quirky sister-in-law. Two years later, Williams finally became a real-life bride when she wed country singer Brad Paisley. The couple live in Franklin, Tenn., with their two sons.
