Mini biography

Grew up in Brooklyn Heights, just across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan, except for the four years her family spent in Woodstock, New York. Back in Brooklyn Heights, she attended Saint Ann school. Her father was in the garment industry, and a close friend of the family was an advertising executive. When Jennifer was 10, the friend suggested that her parents take her to a modelling audition. She began appearing in newspaper and magazine ads (see Seventeen magazine pictures) and soon moved on to TV commercials. A casting director saw the girl and introduced her to Sergio Leone, who was seeking a young girl to dance in his gangster epic "Once Upon a Time in America." Enrolled at Yale, then transferred two years later to Stanford. First appearance on celluloid was a British TV series "Tales Of The Unexpected". Her first movie appearance was in Dario Argento's Phenomena (1985). Has appeared in 1 rock video: "I Drove All Night", a Roy Orbison Song, co-starring Jason Priestly. There is a rumor she appeared briefly in a Duran Duran video. Is appearing in an upcoming Miller Beer commercial. Released a single called "Monologue Of Love" in Japan mid-eighties, in which she sings in Japanese a charming little song with semi classical instruments arrangement. B-side is "Message Of Love" which is an interview with music in background. Trained in classical theatre and improvisation, studying with the late drama coach Roy London and with Howard Fine and Harold Guskin. She did TV commercials in Japan. Was "engaged" in an unconventional sense i.e. no real plans to marry, to Bill Cambell, her co-star in "The Rocketeer". They were together on and off for about 5 years. Lives in New York. She's five feet seven (about 1, 68 m) Speaks fluent Italian and French. Was a member of Gold's Gym in Venice for a year or two, but is no longer active. Enjoys physical activities such as swimming, gymnastics, bike riding. Is an outdoors person -- camping, hiking and walking. Is interested in Quantum Physics and philosophy. Is fairly level headed and grounded as a person, and is not overly seduced by the Hollywood fantasy. Likes Horses. Likes Pearl Jam, SoundGarden, Jesus Jones. Occasionally wears a small picture of the Dali Lama on a necklace. Favorite colors:cobalt blue, forest green, and" very pale green/gray - sort of like the color of the sea". Likes to draw.
