Milano broke her silence on September 22 after she was accused of calling the police on a suspected gunman in her neighborhood of Bell Canyon in Ventura County, California, over the weekend in a report by the Daily Mail.
Milano was born on December 19, 1972, in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, the daughter of fashion designer and talent manager Lin Milano and film-music editor Thomas M. Milano. She and her brother, Cory, who is a decade her junior, are of Italian ancestry. She was raised Roman Catholic.

Alyssa Milano Age
Alyssa Milano is 47 -years old.
Milano began her career at age seven, when her babysitter, without notifying Milano’s parents, took her to an audition for one of the four principal parts in a national touring company of Annie. Milano was one of four selected from more than 1,500 girls. During the course of her work in the play, Milano and her mother were on the road for 18 months. After returning to New York, Milano appeared in television commercials and performed several roles in off-Broadway productions, including the first American musical adaptation of Jane Eyre. When accompanying a friend from the Annie production to the office of a New York agent, Milano was introduced to the agent, who began representing her. She does not feel that growing up in front of the camera harmed her childhood and has said: “I love my family very much – they’ve really backed my career. I consider myself to be normal: I’ve got to clean my room, and help in the kitchen.”
Milano starred in the lead role in Hugo Pool (1997).
In late 1996, Milano was offered a role of Jennifer Mancini on the drama Melrose Place by producer Aaron Spelling: “We were looking for someone with sparkle. Alyssa was the perfect choice. She left early in season seven. In 1998, she was cast as Phoebe Halliwell, one of the three lead characters on Spelling’s show Charmed. She and Holly Marie Combs became producers for the show during season four. The series ran for eight seasons, concluding in 2006.In 1998, she played Mark Hoppus’s love interest in the music video for Blink-182’s “Josie”.
In 2011 Milano appeared in two comedy films, Hall Pass and New Year’s Eve.
In 2013, Milano created the comic book series Hacktivist, which was written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly, drawn by Marcus To, and published by Archaia Entertainment. The book, which explores the modern world of hacking and global activism, is described as “a fast-paced cyber-thriller about friendship and freedom in a time of war”. The publication was released digitally in late 2013, while the first print edition issue of the four-issue miniseries was published in January 2014. A hardcover edition collecting all four issues was released in July 2014. The series received positive reviews, as it currently holds a score of 8.1 out of 10 at the review aggregator website Comic Book Roundup.
This wasn’t the first time Milano has been accused of being a hypocrite. She and former Charmed co-star Rose McGowan feuded last month, with the hashtag #AlyssaMilanoIsALie becoming a top-trending Twitter topic.
The spat started when McGowan accused the Democratic National Convention and Biden of being monsters, frauds and liars. Milano inserted herself into the conversation–as far as McGowan was concerned–when she listed all the good things the Democratic party has done.

Milano first tweeted about “defunding the police” in June, where she said there was no reason they needed to be militarized.
“This is the problem,” she tweeted at the time, as noted by the Daily Mail. “We’ve militarized the police. To protect and serve? Please. How many hungry children would the cost of this tank feed? How many community programs would this serve? How many classroom supplies or childcare programs? Mental health services?”
“Apparently, rightwing media & trolls have decided that they should target me because my neighbor called the police after seeing a person dressed in black holding a rifle behind my home where I live with my young children and husband. Here is my statement and what really happened,” she wrote in a tweet pinned to the top of her Twitter account.
Milano issued a three-page statement via the notes app where she explained that it was not she who called the police and she thanked officers for handling the situation:
On Sunday morning as we were all getting ready to watch the Giants game, our neighbor spotted ‘a man dressed in all black, walking in the woods between our properties with a gun.’ As that is a rare sight in our parts, the neighbor was understandably alarmed and she called the police.
We then received a call alerting us to the potential situation and that officers had been dispatched. My husband subsequently called 911 to check on when police would be arriving. While he was on the line, they arrived.
The responding officers were amazing and made my family and I feel safe and secure as we ‘sheltered in place’ until we knew exactly what was happening. After searching the woods for some time, a man who fit the description called the police himself, to say he had been hunting squirrels in the area and apologized for the commotion he had caused.
I would like to thank the brave men and women of the Ventura Country Sheriffs as well as all the other officers who cam to protect and serve our neighborhood.
These are exactly the type of situations that police officers are trained for and should be responding to, and we will always support police having the resources they need for appropriate policing actions.
We’d love to see equally trained non-police professionals respond to addiction and mental health crises and non-violent events so that these brave officers can do the jobs they are so good at handling, as demonstrated this weekend.
