What happened to Linda Fiorentino?

I had a mad crush on her in the 90s, then she kinda fell off.

Good question. She was great in The Last Seduction and had some other really good roles back in the day.

Maybe roles dried up or she got tired of the biz. I've heard she was difficult to work with.

I liked her in Dogma.

Apparently every director who's worked with her says she's been one of the most difficult actresses they've ever worked with. Read that from various articles over the years from Kevin Smith, Barry Sonnenfeld, and John Dahl.

Re: What happened to Linda Fiorentino?

I seem to remember the last "what happened to Linda Fiorentino" thread someone posted a fairly recent picture of her. She has not aged well!

I had a big crush on her in The Last Seduction and Men in Black so it's too bad.

I also think one of the main reasons I hated MIIB, aside form the fact that it was horrible, was because they didn't bring Fiorentino back like they set up at the end of part 1.

Re: What happened to Linda Fiorentino?

She was great back in the day -- had a crush on her when I was in high school. Her highlights for me probably include:

Beyond the Law
The Last Seduction
Jade
Unforgettable

Vision Quest was released in 1985.

It's been that long?

Re: What happened to Linda Fiorentino?

I never cared for her but I did always wonder what happened to her. I found it odd that they never went anywhere with her character in Men in Black 2.

She won her role for MIB in a poker game.

That alone makes her sound really cool.
