Hutton appeared in the Robert Redford-led "Little Fauss and Big Halsy" (1970) and made her television debut in TV movie "A Time for Love" (1973). She landed a massive contract with Revlon in 1973, the largest in the modeling industry to that point. It was worth $250,000 a year for 20 days' work. Hutton worked with Revlon in this capacity for ten years. Hutton continued to accumulate acting credits, starring in "The Gambler" with James Caan in 1974 and the Evel Knievel film "Viva Knievel!" in 1978. She also co-starred in Paul Schrader's "American Gigolo" (1980) with Richard Gere, and played recurring character Colette Ferrier on the short-lived soap opera "Paper Dolls" (ABC, 1984). Hutton starred as a vampiric countess seducing a young Jim Carrey (in one of his earliest film roles) in "Once Bitten" (1985) before appearing on film and television less frequently, besides a short-lived incarnation of her own talk show, "Lauren Hutton and." (1995-96). But Hutton modeled continued to model extensively through her seventies, appearing on the cover of Vogue a record 26 times and posing nude for the first time at age 61 for Big magazine to combat the shame women are made to feel. She made a notable return to television in a two-part appearance in "Nip/Tuck" (FX, 2003-10) in 2007 and played matriarch and makeup company head Lily LeClaire in the Amy Schumer-led "I Feel Pretty" (2018).

Notes

The 1993 edition of Quigley's Motion Picture Almanac states that Hutton has, as a model, been on the covers of more magazines than any other American--though such a claim would necessarily be rather difficult to prove.

"We have to be able to grow up. Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life, they are what we've been through and who we want to be. I don't think I will ever cut my face, because once I cut it I'll never know where I've been." --Lauren Hutton in Arena Magazine, Spring 1991

"Even if you don't learn well from experience, you've had so much experience by this age [50] that you just have to know not to ride too high on the good times...As wonderful and useful as my body and face were in my twenties and thirties, I knew that my mind was more important. I came from a time when women were terminally frightened of age. Men came into their prime hitting their forties, but women's lives were over. They were psychically eliminiated...There have always been attractive, sexually viable older women in France and Italy. For the first time, my generation is around in America. I myself didn't have anyone to look up to except Margaret Mead. I loved her. She spoke out even when she had something to lose--she didn't give a damn...The glory of age is your mind. Surprisingly, if you haven't burned it out, your mind gets better. --From Interview, November 1993
