Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Supermodel-turned-actress who parlayed her looks into one of the major modeling careers of the 1970s and 80s. Hutton made her film debut in "Paper Lion" (1968) and won interesting notices for her performances in James Toback's "The Gambler" (1974) opposite James Caan, and as the wealthy adulteress in "American Gigolo" (1980). Important roles in major films were relatively few, however, and her acting career slowly diminished during the 80s with most of her appearances being in minor European features or American films ("Lassiter" 1985, "Once Bitten" 1985, "Guilty as Charged" 1992) which fizzled at the box office. Hutton's career blossomed anew in the 90s with a highly successful return to modeling, and acting offers following suit. Considerable media coverage as she approached age 50 highlighted her still exceptional, unashamedly middle-aged beauty, her love of world travel and anthropology, and her mature, mellow attitude towards the trappings of fame.

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
