Wiki Bio Text
Biography by Hal Erickson
Wholesomely sexy Italian actress Valeria Golino was a teen model when she appeared in her first film, Lina Wertmuller's Joke of Destiny (1984). Conversant (if not proficient) in several languages, Golino thrived in international films bearing such provocative titles as Little Fires (1985), Last Summer in Tangiers (1987) and Love Story (1987). One of her first important American roles was as Tom Cruise's voice-of-conscience girlfriend in the Oscar-winning Rain Man (1988), after which she portrayed the trapeze artist who falls in love with Pee-Wee Herman in Big Top Pee-Wee (1988). Blessed with a subtle, sparkle-eyed sense of humor, Golino has been seen to good advantage in the adventure-film spoofs Hot Shots! (1991) and Hot Shots Part Deux (1992); her deadly serious delivery of the most ridiculous of lines ("What do you do with an elephant with three balls?") has been attributed by some to expert comic timing, and by others to Golino's alleged habit of learning her English dialogue by rote.
