Lauren Hutton (born Mary Laurence Hutton on November 17, 1943, in Charleston, South Carolina) is an American supermodel and sometimes actress. She is best known to drama fans for her starring roles in the movies American Gigolo and Once Bitten, and to everyone else for her fashion modeling.
Hutton became one of the first students to attend the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida in 1960, but later she transferred to Tulane University, where she graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in 1964.
Huttons's travels took her often to Africa, where she enjoyed the beauty of that continent as well as its people.
1995 was a notable year for Hutton, since she was cast in the ensemble of the obscure CBS soap-opera Central Park West, playing the wealthy socialite Linda Fairchild; and also her late night talk show Lauren Hutton and ... also debuted. The talk show was short-lived, but Hutton continued to work steadily, appearing in film roles and in the occasional assignment as a hostess.
The actress, an avid motorcycle enthusiast, made headlines in October 2000, when at the age of 55 she was involved in a serious motorcycle accident, while on a 100-mile ride near Las Vegas with motorbikers, and also fellow celebrities, including Dennis Hopper and Jeremy Irons, to celebrate a planned motorcycle exhibit at the Hermitage-Guggenheim museum. Irons reportedly had given Hutton a full-face helmet just minutes before she crashed. Losing control on a curve, she skidded about 100 feet and then went airborne, ultimately suffering multiple leg and arm fractures, broken ribs, a punctured lung, cuts, and bruises. Hutton subsequently traveled down a long road of physical rehabilitation. Hutton endured, and soon she became the spokeswoman for her own signature brand of cosmetics, Lauren Hutton's "Good Stuff", sold primarily via the Home Shopping Network in the USA as well as through numerous secondary distribution channels throughout Europe and South America. Her well known purist approach to life is also well known to be mirrored in her cosmetics company, in that the company reputation and mandate for using nothing but the best of ingredients is invariably attributed to her very karmic approach to life.
In October 2005, at the age of 61, Hutton agreed to pose nude for Big magazine. "I want them (women) not to be ashamed of who they are when they're in bed," Hutton told ABC's Good Morning America.
