Clorinda "Linda" Fiorentino (born March 9, 1960, in Philadelphia) is an Italian-American actress. She began performing in stage plays at Rosemont College before graduating in 1980 and made her big-screen debut in the 1985 drama Vision Quest and received further recognition for Gotcha, After Hours, The Moderns, Queens Logic and Jade.

During a good part of The '90s, Fiorentino's career was at its peak thanks to her appeareances in The Last Seduction, Men in Black and Dogma, with the latter two being among her most recognizable roles. For her performance in The Last Seduction, she won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actress, the London Film Critics' Circle Award for Actress of the Year, and was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Once considered a very noteworthy actress, Fiorentino's career began to falter at the beginning of the 2000s. The films on which she starred at that year, What Planet Are You From and Where The Money Is were critically and financially panned, and her next movie, Liberty Stands Still even went straight to video as a result. This, coupled with the fact that Dogma director Kevin Smith (and a handful of other filmmakers as well) revealed the actress was quite The Prima Donna on set, has caused Fiorentino to largely vanish from the film industry, and she made one last appeareance in the 2009 movie Once More With Feeling before ultimately disappearing from the big screen altogether. Her website is still active, however, and shows that Fiorentino is currently focusing on her career as photographer now.
