What is her current marital status?
Single, never married.

Does she have any siblings?

How did she get that scar on her lower right abdomen, and why is the scar visible in some photos but not all?
When she was 12 years old, she had an appendectomy (surgical procedure to have appendix removed) which usually leaves a scar behind. Most of the time, the scar is edited out from a photo unless whoever she is working for at the time wants the scar to be seen.

Is she presently working on any new film projects?
In May 2004, Universal Pictures will release a film titled Van Helsing and she will star in it as Marishka, one of Dracula's brides.
She recently finished working on two new films, The Aviator (director: Martin Scorsese, November 2004 release date) and Little Black Book (director: Nick Hurran, October 15, 2004 release date).

Is there a way anyone may see The Mallory Effect, the independent film that featured her?
The world premiere of The Mallory Effect occurred at the Slamdance 2002 Film Festival in Park City, Utah on January 12, 2002. That was the only place it was ever publicly shown. After the initial world premiere, this independent film has not been released anywhere else. To this date, it cannot be viewed or bought anywhere and there has not been a DVD or VHS release either. You can, however, download the official movie trailer and a couple movie clips from this web site in our Motion section.

Has she done anything else other than modeling and acting?
In early 2002, she formed a rock band named "Darling" with Soleil and Sofia Alberti, and Nicole Richie (Lionel Richie's daughter). Then as time went on, another band named "Hollywood 2002" was formed and she sang (more like spoke) in the band and she also played the violin. The band concept was only something for fun with her friends and was never to be taken seriously.

Has she ever dated another celebrity?
She previously dated and lived with magician David Blaine. She had some public appearances with him when they were together. Their most notable appearance together was on the Howard Stern TV/Radio show back in November 2000. They are no longer together and it is private who she is dating nowadays.

Has she ever done her own official calendar?
For several months, attempted to sell a "Josie Maran 2002 Calendar". However, orders were never filled because the item was extremely difficult to obtain and distribute. The maker of the item, Landmark Calendars (Mead), has deemed it out-of-print.

From Frenchy,
"It's official. Josie will have a calendar for 2003 released this June (2002) as a special '16-month' edition. There's a small picture of it on page 367 of the April 2002 Previews Catalog, and can [only] be ordered through it as well. The Previews Catalog is available exclusively at comic book stores nationwide (USA). Landmark Calendars is putting it out."

Creator's Note: The 2003 calendar mentioned above was properly pre-ordered through the Previews Catalog by many different people throughout the USA. To this day, none of these people were able to have the calendar shipped. It is unclear why this calendar was even offered in the first place since it was never shipped out.

Are there any wall posters available of her?
Yes, two were released in the year 2001, the first one titled Red and the latest one titled Purple. You may view the images of both posters in our Gallery section. The Mead Corporation produced the Red one, and then Trends International, Inc. produced the Purple one. They were mostly distributed in Wal*Mart stores throughout the United States and cost only about $4 US. Nowadays, it is very difficult to obtain these posters. You could try

When did make its debut?
The Miss Josie Maran web site opened on October 19, 2001.
