E! Logo By Tierney Bricker of E! | Slide 1 of 8: Well before taking on the role of conwoman matriarch Max, the Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee was already a screen legend, thanks to her genre-defining turn as Ripley in the Alien franchise, along with her roles in Working Girl, Ghostbusters and Gorillas in the Mist.  Weaver has since appeared in the highest grossing movie of all-time (2009's Avatar), lent her voice to beloved animated movies (Finding Dory and Wall-E) and made the transition to TV with 2012's Political Animals.  The 71-year-old is set to reprise the part of Dana Barrett in Ghostbusters: Afterlife later this year and will appear in two Avatar sequels.  Married to stage director Jim Simpson since 1984, Weaver welcomed her daughter Charlotte in 1990.
