Following her success as a top fashion model for the Ford Modeling Agency and Revlon cosmetics, Hutton was selected to play the only major female character in Paper Lion (1968). After a semi-successful starring role in American Gigolo (1980), Hutton's modeling career took a slide in the 1980s, and she was relegated to B-movie roles. Her modeling career was resuscitated in 1989 with photos in catalogs for Barneys and J. Crew. In 1995, she started a new job as talk show host.IMDb Mini Biography By: Ray Hamel

She was riding with fellow stars Dennis Hopper and Jeremy Irons among others on a 100-mile ride celebrating the planned Guggenheim motorcycle exhibit. She was listed in serious but stable condition with multiple leg fractures and cuts and bruises. The accident could have been far more serious. Hopper insisted that she wear motorbike leathers, and Irons gave her a full-face helmet just minutes before her crash.
Bob Williamson acted as her accountant and, upon his death, Hutton discovered that nearly $32 million, several years' wages, was gone. In his will, he left $2.5 million to his new wife, and nothing to Lauren Hutton - the rightful owner of most of his money.

Was the original "Charlie" perfume girl in the long running ad campaign.
When she began working at the Playboy Club upon first arriving in Manhattan, she was still going by her birth name, Mary. There were already several bunnies named Mary, however, so management suggested that she choose another name. Using actress Lauren Bacall as her inspiration, she shortened her middle name of Laurence to Lauren, and went with that.
Was ranked #13 in Channel 5's "World's greatest supermodel".
Friend of Beverly D'Angelo.

We have to be able to grow up. Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be. I don't think I will ever cut my face, because once I cut it, I'll never know where I've been.
Lauren Hutton now does print and TV commercials for The Gardens of Palm Beaches Mall, in West Palm Beach Florida. Current as of December 2001.
