Wiki

Linda Fiorentino (born March 9, 1958) is an Italian-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 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.
