Lauren Hutton Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Nov 17, 1943
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001
  • Birth Name: Mary Laurence Hutton

Born in South Carolina and raised in rural Florida, Lauren Hutton embarked on a modelling career in roundabout fashion by becoming a Playboy bunny at age 20. It wasn't long thereafter that the statuesque Hutton became a top fashion model, cover girl and commercial spokesperson. Though advised early on to correct the slight gap in her teeth, Hutton wisely retained this "imperfection," which gave her on-camera persona a down-home sensibility that other, more ethereal models lacked. She began appearing in films in 1968, hitting her stride with such movies as [[Feature~V19305~Gator~gator]] (1976), [[Feature~V1969~American Gigolo~americangigolo]] (1978), and [[Feature~V56214~Zorro, the Gay Blade~zorrothegayblade]] (1981). Unlike other actresses-turned-models, Hutton achieved critical acceptance fairly rapidly, earning respectable reviews for such projects as the 1977 TV miniseries [[Feature~V154492~The Rheinman Exchange~maximumrisk]] and the 1984 adventure film [[Feature~V28278~Lassiter~lassiter]] (in which she played a literally bloodthirsty villainess). Following the lead of [[Performer~P22885~Farrah Fawcett~farrahfawcett]], Hutton made her stage debut in the harrowing revenge-for-a-rape stage play Extremities in 1983. In recent years, Hutton has cut down on her acting appearances to return successfully to modeling; she has also become a staunch and powerful activist for several political causes. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
