Brunette Aussie serious dramatist Judy Davis splashed into the world's attention at age twenty-four as the leading lady in My Brilliant Career (1978). A big hit from Down Under, Brilliant gave Davis the chance to be picky about her roles, and she has often chosen to star in projects that are more literary than Hollywood, such as Naked Lunch (1991), an adaptation of the William S. Burroughs novel, and the Woody Allen word fests Alice (1989), Husbands and Wives (1992), Deconstructing Harry (1997), and Celebrity (1998). Like any good writer, Judy realizes that sex appeal keeps the readers glued to the page. She lies shirtless on her back in bed in the shadows of Husbands and Wives, and her nipple reaches out toward the light. Her muff does the same thing in On My Own (1992).
