Linda Fiorentino - Biography

 

Linda Fiorentino (born March 9, 1958) is an American actress. She is known for her roles in films such as Dogma, Vision Quest, Men in Black, After Hours and The Last Seduction.

Fiorentino was born Clorinda Fiorentino in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Fiorentino is of Italian American Catholic background. She graduated from Washington Township High School, in Sewell, New Jersey, and is a graduate of Rosemont College in suburban Philadelphia. She has studied photography, off and on, since 1987 at the International Center of Photography in New York City. She was married to director John Byrum for a time, but they divorced in 1993. She is still very close to Byrum's children. She splits her time between Westport, Connecticut and New York City.

Fiorentino got her first professional role in 1985 when she starred in Vision Quest. It was not until 1994 that she became widely recognized, receiving accolades for her performance in The Last Seduction as femme fatale Bridget, almost the textbook example of a murderous seductress in a modern film noir. Because it was first aired on HBO television she was ineligible for an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress, despite glowing reviews.
She later worked again with director John Dahl, who cast her in his film Unforgettable. Her co-star from Gotcha!, Anthony Edwards, has also directed her in one of his films.
Fiorentino was placed 66th on a list of "100 Sexiest Stars in Film History" by Empire magazine.
Her most recent leading role was as a woman threatened by a sniper in the 2002 film Liberty Stands Still. Fiorentino also co-starred with Paul Newman in a 2000 heist film, Where the Money Is. She recently completed the film Once More with Feeling opposite Chazz Palminteri, due out in 2009.

In late 2008, Fiorentino's boyfriend, FBI agent Mark Rossini, resigned from the FBI, admitting he had made unauthorized searches into the FBI's files on controversial private detective Anthony Pellicano in order to help an individual identified as 'Madame X'. Fox News reported that Rossini acknowledged being in a close personal relationship with Madame X. According to the New York Post, Fiorentino has been working on the script for a film about Pelicano's life and Rossini accessed the files to help Fiorentino research that script.

 

Linda Fiorentino - Personal Quotes

 

"The thing that's always bothered me is that, even if you have a strong female character, invariably in the third act she has to say something like, 'I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you,' or she has to become really vulnerable and wimpy and get her comeuppance. Even in something like Thelma & Louise (1991), where you have these two very strong characters, they have to die in the end. What's so special about The Last Seduction (1994) is that none of that happens. Had a Hollywood studio made that film instead of an independent, it would have been very different. She definitely wouldn't have gotten away with what she does get away with."

"Marriage is a financial contract; I have enough contracts already."

"I go to bed with men, not boys."

All I'm thinking about today is cleaning my bathroom.

As actors, the thing we have to fight, more than even the business part of making movies, is boredom.

Chazz Palminteri is just the ultimate screen husband.

Do you know what my real name is? It's Clorinda. Which is also Italian. They used to call me Clorox when I was a kid.

I have a sister who's kind of in the business-she does voice-overs. I think they all watch what I go through and have decided to get married and have children instead. It's a safer bet.

On getting the part of Bethany: "When I read the script, I just said there's no way anyone else is allowed to have this part. I thought it was extremely clever and it had very imaginative answers to all my childhood questions about angels and devils and the apostles and all that stuff."

I don't look at scripts in terms of commercially. I just look at the part, the people involved.

I never wear leather.

I would love to have children, yes. Maybe even adopt them. I'm not sure that I should pass on my genes.

I would like to do maybe a smaller romantic comedy.

I've been in the bargain basement of the movie business.

I was still making movies so it wasn't as if I were working in a bar, but they were independent films that couldn't find distributors.

They're my favorite two words these days: Oscar reject.

You can talk about movies all you want, but I have this porcelain fetish. I've had it since I was a kid, because there were so many kids in my family, the only place I had any solace was in the bathroom.

You constantly have to find something that's challenging, a director who's challenging, co-stars who are challenging. That's what keeps us going

Teens aren't just interested in getting laid. I won't believe that's all they're interested in. I have four younger sisters and they're sick of being shown how they're supposed to react in bed.

Sometimes I have to work because I need the money. You weigh the issues and ask yourself, Can I wake up every morning and do this?
