The daughter of a fashion editor, actress Sally Kirkland (born Oct. 31, 1944, in New York City) was accustomed to being surrounded by beautiful people growing up, so it's not surprising that she would find another home of sorts in the '60s bastion of beautiful people, Andy's Warhol's Factory. (She even appeared in several of the underground films made there, including The 13 Most Beautiful Women).

After working briefly as a model, Kirkland trained at the Actors Studio and began performing in off-Broadway productions. It would take appearing nude in the 1968 Terrence McNally play "Sweet Eros," however, for Kirkland to make a real impact.

After supporting roles in films such as The Sting (1973) and Private Benjamin (1980), Kirkland received a Best Actress Oscar nomination for playing the titular character in Anna (1987). More recent films include 2003's Bruce Almighty.

JFK: Special Edition

1991 R

Oliver Stone's fascinating film about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy -- one of America's most enigmatic and mythical political figures -- is even more dramatic thanks to the extra footage included in this special edition. When Kennedy is killed while visiting Dallas, a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald (Gary Oldman) takes the fall. But was he acting alone, or was he part of a larger conspiracy?
