It has been nearly 13 years since Fountains Of Wayne released their pop-rock anthem Stacy's Mom, about a teenager who was obsessed with the mother of his high school sweetheart. In the video for the song, Rachel Hunter played Stacy's bikini-clad mum, stealing all the attention away from her daughter. Well, the actress who played Stacy, Gianna Distenca, was pretty difficult to find, but we did some digging and discovered that the blonde is now an artist and sculptor operating under an entirely different name. However, an old Devianart account cites her name as Distenca — and there's no mistaking those girl next door looks.
Miss Dispenza is now a successful artist and sculptor, and moved to Beirut, Lebanon in with her boyfriend. In various interviews, Gianna neglects to mention her video star past, but discusses her nomadic youth, which saw her living in Mexico, California, Switzerland and Italy all before she left her teens. At the age of 15 — about a year after filming the Stacy's Mom video, Gianna — who is Sicilian by blood — she moved away from home to Lugano, Switzerland, where she began to study art. Speaking to Sweven, Gianna told of her impressive educational background: "I somehow managed to attend four different universities.
After high school I moved first to Italy and studies at SACI in Florence for a few months where I was introduced to sculpture and was lucky enough to work in marble. As well as working as an artist, Dispenza also works with refugee children at a volunteer centre in Beirut. By Emma Kelly. Video Loading Video Unavailable. Click to play Tap to play.
