!!Tropes frequently used for this actress' roles:
* MsFanservice: In her early twenties years. ''The Hot Spot'' is [[BestKnownForTheFanservice mostly known]] for the scene she goes topless. Doesn't stop there, a lot of her movies in the late 90s and early 00s have sex scenes that display her... assets. Even a film that didn't have any overt sexuality, 1991's ''Career Opportunities'', found an excuse to get her into a tight T-shirt for the last 45 minutes or so. The "Fanservice" aspect pretty much faded away once she started establishing herself in serious films like ''Film/ABeautifulMind''.
