    Biography

    Born | Mary Cathleen Collins

    Bo Derek is a good actress (despite what critics have said) whose fundamental problem has been the poor choice of roles. Yes, her late husband John Derek found her but if she had pursued an acting career without his all enveloping influence then who knows where it might of led her

    An aspiring model, 16-year-old Bo Derek was introduced to actor/director/cinematographer/creator of unwatchable films John Derek in 1971. Just as he'd done with previous "protegés" Ursula Andress and Linda Evans, Derek literally molded her into a highly desirable superstar. In 1974, the 48-year-old Derek capped his makeover by marrying the 18-year-old Bo.

    In her first film, the Jaws rip-off Orca, Bo showed up long enough to have her lovely leg chewed off by a killer whale. Her next film was far more rewarding: Blake Edwards' 10(1979), in which, bouncing along the beach in slow motion to the pulsating rhythms of Ravel's Bolero, the scantily clad, cornrow-coifed Bo became the instant object of star Dudley Moore's affections.

    An overnight pin-up favorite, Bo followed her 10 triumph with a brace of crap adventure films directed by her husband: Tarzan the Ape Man (1981) and Bolero (1984).

    After six years away from films, she returned before the cameras in another Derek/Derek co-production, the unsuccessful and indescribably bad Ghosts Can't Do It (1990). Bo Derek has since occasionally appeared in such films as the Italian Sognando La California (1991) and the American Woman of Desire (1994).
