South African model and actress Tanit Phoenix caught our attention at the Los Angeles premiere of Maleficent on Wednesday night, when we spotted her on the arm of boyfriend Sharlto Copley.

The sexy brunette has appeared on the cover of the South African edition of Cosmopolitan magazine four times, and has also covered other mags, including FHM and Maxim (she's on the cover of this month's SA edition), along with South African versions of Marie Claire and GQ.

Phoenix, 33, has had small roles in such films as "Lord of War," "Safe House," "Death Race 2" and "Lost Boys: The Thirst."

She was also a regular on Cinemax's adult film noir series "Femme Fatales."

Born in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, the model/actress is a vegan. She splits her time between Cape Town, SA and has a home in Los Angeles with Copley.
