Valerie Ritchie Perrine (born September 3, 1943) is an Academy Award-nominated American actress and model.
Perrine began her career as a Las Vegas showgirl. She made her motion picture debut with an uncredited part in Diamonds Are Forever (1971). She next played soft-core porn actress Montana Wildhack in Slaughterhouse-Five (1972). Her most famous movie role is perhaps Miss Eve Teschmacher in Superman (1978) and in Superman II (1980).
Valerie was photographed as a model for a pictorial layout in the May 1972 issue of Playboy magazine, and appeared on the cover in August 1981.
In 1975, Perrine was nominated for the Academy Award for the Best Actress in a Leading Role for her role as Honey Bruce in Lenny (1974), for which she was also nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Actress - Drama. She was also nominated for the 1979 Saturn Award as Best Supporting Actress in Superman (1978).
She played Carlotta Monti in W. C. Fields and Me (1976) and Charlotta Steele in The Electric Horseman (1979), but her career grew uneven when she appeared in such movies as Can't Stop the Music (1980), for which she was nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Actress. This film has since become a cult classic. In 1982 she played the role of Marcy, the wife of a corrupt police officer in The Border. Since then she has worked steadily in lower-profile projects.
