Rebecca De Mornay

Rebecca De MornayAKA Rebecca Pearch

Born: 29-Aug-1959
Birthplace: Santa Rosa, CA

Gender: Female
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: And God Created Woman

Rebecca De Mornay played the prostitute in Risky Business, an escaped prisoner in the remake of And God Created Woman, and a deranged nanny in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. On TV, she had recurring roles on ER and The Practice.

Her father, Wally George, was a loud conservative TV talk show host, who proudly pioneered what he called "combat TV". De Mornay was an infant when her mother divorced him, and she got her last name when he mother remarried. Her stepfather, though, died when De Mornay was five. The widow De Mornay then moved to Europe, where Rebecca and her stepbrother were raised first in England and later Austria. De Mornay speaks French, German, and English fluently.

Critics and audiences agreed that De Mornay's version of And God Created Woman was tripe compared to the Brigitte Bardot original. The remake, however, does feature De Mornay and Vincent Spano in one of the most erotically charged sex scenes ever filmed for a non-X-rated film.
