Born Jason Patric Miller in Queens, he is the middle child of actor-playwright Jason Miller and actress Linda G Miller (whose father was comic legend Jackie Gleason). After his parents' divorce, he and his siblings were raised in NYC and Bergen County, NJ. At age 16, Patric moved to California and with his younger brother Jordan earned credit as production assistants on the film version of Jason Miller's award-winning play That Championship Season (1982). Opting for an acting career, he dropped his surname and landed his first role as the troubled son of Bruce Dern and Lee Remick in the ABC movie Toughlove (1985).[1] Jason Patric would nearly perfect the sexy, brooding man in many serious dramas and thrillers throughout his career, while trying to maintain privacy by refusing to talk about himself in interviews.[2]

In 1991 Patric was dragged into the tabloids for his affair with Hollywood sweetheart Julia Roberts. She had broken off her engagement with Kiefer Sutherland and ran off to Europe with Jason Patric, causing a disruption to his enigmatic public persona.[3]
