Hometown: Born and raised in Hertfordshire, England, according to her Wikipedia entry. Her dad's the Scottish folk singer Donovan; her mother's a model named Enid Karl.
Best Known For: Sadly, her career probably peaked with the 1989 romantic comedy/coming of age movie/ode to stalking Say Anything... Her screen debut was the 1986 drama The River's Edge, and she played the frequently nude title character in the 1989 film The Rachel Papers.
In the 1990s, she starred in the short-lived primetime soap Covington Cross, appeared in Wayne's World, played a witch in Four Rooms and wrote, directed and appeared in the 1992 film Gas, Food and Lodging.
Humble Beginnings: Her career started out pretty strongly, actually.
Why I Should've Been a Musician: The hot topless woman on the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Mother's Milk album cover? That's her. She was dating singer Anthony Kiedis at the time.
She later married Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys, and she's now married to Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee. There were also a male designer and a female model (the latter, Jenny Shimizu, has also been involved with Angelina Jolie) in the middle years, but the point is, Ye Olde Podcaster should have been a musician.
Why Ye Olde Podcaster Likes Her: What heterosexual male in America DIDN'T fall in love with her in Say Anything? Yeah, that's what I thought.
