Carré Otis (born September 28, 1968 in San Francisco, California) is an American model and actress best known for her role as Emily Reed in Wild Orchid.
She attended Marin Academy in San Rafael, California and the John Woolman School in Nevada City, California.
By the age of 18, she began work as as a fashion model, appearing on the cover of Elle (French edition, 1996) and other magazines. She appeared in ads for Guess jeans (1988), Calvin Klein jeans ("biker chick" look, 1991 ), appeared in the 1996 Pirelli calendar, and also posed for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition (2000). Otis was also featured in 1990 and 2000 issues of Playboy magazine.
She was briefly a cause célèbre following the release of Wild Orchid due to rumors she and then-lover Mickey Rourke filmed an unsimulated sex scene. She married Rourke in 1992. They divorced in 1994.
After Wild Orchid, her film career never took off, and her modelling career also stagnated as Otis struggled with her long-time anorexia, drug addiction, and attendant health issues, including heart seizures. Her subsequent minor weight gain took her out of the supermodel leagues, but since then Otis has regained popularly as a spokesperson for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week in 2003. She also appeared periodically as a correspondent on Channel 4 News in San Francisco.
