Laura Dern with Billy Bob Thornton
Few young actresses have so successfully tapped into the subtle, heated boldness of adolescent sexuality as this willowy, five-foot-ten-inch blonde. She was bitten by the acting bug as a child, when she played bit parts in her parents' (actors Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern) movies. But it was her starring role in Smooth Talk that proved that Laura Dern could carry a picture. A favorite of director David Lynch, she starred in Wild at Heart and Blue Velvet (two weirded-out flicks), but made her most illuminating impression as the title character in Rambling Rose, which won Dern a Best Actress nomination for Laura and Best Supporting Actress Nomination for her mother, the first time a mother-daughter team had been so honored. A lead in Jurassic Park led to a real-life love affair with Jeff Goldblum.
