Diane Lane played the cheating wife in the 2002 thriller Unfaithful (with Richard Gere), a role that cemented her position as a leading lady in Hollywood after more than two decades in the movies. She was nominated for an Oscar. Lane made an auspicious debut when she was just 13 years old in A Little Romance (1979), and during the '80s starred in three films by Francis Ford Coppola: The Outsiders (1983), Rumble Fish (1984) and The Cotton Club (1984). In the next decade Lane appeared in several duds, but she stood out in the television mini-series Lonesome Dove (1989) and in a small role in Chaplin (1992, with Robert Downey, Jr.). She has had a good run in solid Hollywood roles: The Perfect Storm (2000, with Mark Wahlberg); Hardball (2001, with Keanu Reeves); The Glass House (2001, with Lee Lee Sobieski); Under the Tuscan Sun (2003); Must Love Dogs (2005, with John Cusack); Hollywoodland (2006, with Adrien Brody); Untraceable and Jumper (both 2008); Secretariat (2010); the Superman reboot Man of Steel (2013) and Justice League (2017).
