Bijou Phillips Biography
Bijou Lilly Phillips was born in Greenwich, Connecticut on April 1, 1980.

She is the last of her father’s three marriages’ children. Bijou has one sibling and three half-siblings.
Bijou was placed in foster care in Boston Landing, New York, in 1985, where she lived intermittently. Her parents were both found unfit to raise her following their divorce. She used to visit her parents in foster care after they had both moved to Boston Landing and purchased homes there.
