Shue was born in Wilmington, Delaware. His mother, Anne Brewster (née
Wells; b. 1938), is a bank executive who was the vice president of the
private division of the
Chemical Bank Corporation. His father, James

developer who was the president of the International Food and Beverage
Corporation and was active in Republican politics, having once
unsuccessfully run for the U.S. Congress in New Jersey. His
mother was a descendant of
Pilgrim leader William Brewster and his
father was of German ancestry, from Pennsylvania. His sister,
Elisabeth, is also an actor.
Shue attended Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey. Along
with his sister, Elisabeth Shue, he was inducted into the CHS Hall of
fame in 1994. At Dartmouth College, as he was in high school, Shue
was a Regional All America soccer player and spent a winter studying
and playing soccer in Glasgow,
Scotland for Queen's Park FC. Shue
received his B.A. in history from Dartmouth in 1989. After graduating,
he visited Zimbabwe, where he simultaneously played soccer and taught
high school math at Founders High School.
Shue was married to floral designer Jennifer Hageney from
1994-2008. They had three sons: Nathaniel (born 1996), Aidan (born
1999) and Wyatt (born 2004).
They divorced in 2009. In 2010 Shue married former The Today Show

his brother John, and his brother-in-law, Davis Guggenheim, the
Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth. Shue co-produced the
film and also appeared in a minor role. It pays tribute to the Shue
siblings' elder brother Will, who died in an accident in 1988. The
