Transfixing, mercurial actress heir of Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini; 37. Twice divorced; one daughter. With director David (Twin Peaks) Lynch since their 1986 collaboration, Blue Velvet. "When I had [daughter] Elettra, my body was an adult body [of] 31. But I had some adolescence also. Childbirth took that away, and in a way I was very happy about that. There are no longer traits of virginity or the untouched. You immediately become a body that has lived, and I think there is a real beauty in that."
