Profile Bio Text
Linda Fiorentino (born March 9, 1958) is an American actress. She is known for her roles in films such as Dogma, Vision Quest, Men in Black, After Hours and The Last Seduction.
Fiorentino was born Clorinda Fiorentino in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Fiorentino is of Italian American Catholic background.
She graduated from Washington Township High School, in Sewell, New Jersey, and is a graduate of Rosemont College in suburban Philadelphia. She has studied photography, off and on, since 1987 at the International Center of Photography in New York City. She was married to director John Byrum for a time, but they divorced in 1993. She is still very close to Byrum`s children. She splits her time between Westport, Connecticut and New York City.
Fiorentino got her first professional role in 1985 when she starred in Vision Quest. It was not until 1994 that she became widely recognized, receiving accolades for her performance in The Last Seduction as femme fatale Bridget, almost the textbook example of a murderous seductress in a modern film noir. Because it was first aired on HBO television she was ineligible for an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress, despite glowing reviews.
She later worked again with director John Dahl, who cast her in his film Unforgettable. Her co-star from Gotcha!, Anthony Edwards, has also directed her in one of his films.
Fiorentino was placed 66th on a list of "100 Sexiest Stars in Film History" by Empire magazine.
Her most recent leading role was as a woman threatened by a sniper in the 2002 film Liberty Stands Still. Fiorentino also co-starred with Paul Newman in a 2000 heist film, Where the Money Is. She recently completed the film Once More with Feeling opposite Chazz Palminteri, due out in 2009.
In late 2008, Fiorentino`s boyfriend, FBI agent Mark Rossini, resigned from the FBI, admitting he had made unauthorized searches into the FBI`s files on controversial private detective Anthony Pellicano in order to help an individual identified as `Madame X`.
Fox News reported that Rossini acknowledged being in a close personal relationship with Madame X.
According to the New York Post, Fiorentino has been working on the script for a film about Pelicano`s life and Rossini accessed the files to help Fiorentino research that script.
