Biography

American film producer, and former hair stylist. The son of a Cherokee Indian cook and an Italian hairdresser, he grew up a wild kid, doing time in reform school and dropping out of school. He was on his own by the time he was 12 in New York City where he worked in a hair salon. At 14 he returned to California with a 15-year-old wife. With borrowed money he established the elegant Jon Peters Salon on Rodeo Drive and built up to a multimillion-dollar empire of beauty shops and cosmetic products.

In 1967 he made a second marriage, to actress Lesley Ann Warren, and took charge of her career. He met Barbra Streisand in 1974 when she hired him as her personal hairdresser for the film "For Pete's Sake." Their professional relationship became personal and after a divorce in 1975, he became her lover, manager, and film and record producer. Following the success of his first production, "A Star is Born," 1976, he focused entirely on film, putting out a number of minor productions.

In 1979, Peters teamed up with Peter Guber to form one of the most successful teams in Hollywood history, a collaboration which led to their co-chairmanship of Columbia Pictures.

In 1991, Peters quit his executive post to pursue independent productions.
