Fiona Apple is the daughter of actors Brandon Maggart and Diane McFee. She taught herself piano at age eight as an escape from the pain of her parents' divorce. She was already scarily intense by eleven, when she confessed to a friend that she was going to kill herself and her sister. Then things got worse when she was assaulted at twelve, an experience she shares in her aptly titled song "Sullen Girl." Oddly, she says the horrible incident helped her growth as an artist! On a happier note, her demo made it into the right hands, and her debut Tidal became a smash hit. The closest to skin Fiona gets is in her breakthrough video for "Criminal," in which she strips down to silken skivvies and appears topless, albeit from behind. The closest that she's come to appearing in the movies was as the artist behind Melora Walters's paintings in Magnolia (1999). Fiona does get naked with some, for instance old boyfriend magician David Blaine and Magnolia director and screenwriter Paul Thomas Anderson, who directed "Criminal." It's a crime that he's yet to feature her nude in one of his movies.
