Lauren Hutton (born November 17, 1943, in Charleston, South Carolinamarker) is an American former model and occasional actress. She is best known for her starring roles in the movies American Gigolo and Lassiter, and also for her fashion modeling career.

Personal life

Hutton became one of the first students to attend the University of South Floridamarker in Tampa, Floridamarker in 1960, but later she transferred to Tulane Universitymarker, where she graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in 1964.

Career

As an actress, Hutton made her film debut in the Paper Lion (1968), and she won notices for her performances in James Toback's The Gambler (1974), opposite James Caan. She also starred in John Carpenter's TV movie Someone's Watching Me! (1978) and played the wealthy adventurous adulteress in American Gigolo (1980). Important roles in major films were relatively few, however, and her acting career diminished during the 1980s, with most of her appearances being in minor European features or American films that fizzled at the box office, such as Lassiter(1984), Once Bitten (1985), and Guilty as Charged (1992). Hutton's modeling career was revived in the 1990s, and more acting offers following suit.

In 1984, she was offered a role for a TV series Paper Dolls. MGM decided to produce a weekly series based on the TV movie for ABC, recasting several of the original roles from the 1982 production. However, the series was short-lived and was canceled after 13 episodes.

1995 was a notable year for Hutton, as she was cast in the CBS soap-opera Central Park West, playing the wealthy socialite Linda Fairchild. Also, her late night talk show Lauren Hutton and ... debuted. However, both were short-lived and canceled the following year.

Also an avid motorcycle enthusiast, Hutton made headlines in October 2000 when, at the age of 55, she was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. She was on a ride near Las Vegas with various motorbikers, including actors Dennis Hopper and Jeremy Irons, to celebrate a planned motorcycle exhibit at the Hermitage-Guggenheim museum. Irons reportedly had given Hutton a full-face helmet just minutes before she crashed. Losing control on a curve, she skidded about and then went airborne, ultimately suffering multiple leg and arm fractures, broken ribs, a punctured lung, cuts, and bruises. Following her recovery, she became the spokeswoman for her own signature brand of cosmetics, "Good Stuff", sold primarily via LaurenHutton.com in the USA, as well as through numerous secondary distribution channels throughout Europe and South America.

In October 2005, at the age of 61, Hutton agreed to pose nude for Big magazine. "I want them (women) not to be ashamed of who they are when they're in bed", Hutton told ABC's Good Morning America.

Hutton is signed to IMG Models in New York City.
