    Sister of Dick Van Patten
    She made her modeling debut at age five months, in a Sears catalog spread for baby blankets.
    She auditioned unsuccessfully for the part of Bonnie Blue Butler (Rhett and Scarlett's daughter) in 'Gone with the Wind.'
    She has been married and divorced four times, including actor Martin Balsam and actor/director Dennis Dugan.
    She was first married at age 16 and became a mom at 17.
    At age two, she won a Shirley Temple look-alike contest.
    She has been successful in both drama and comedy.
    She apparently gets along well with her exes: she portrayed Balsam's wife in 'St. Elmo's Fire' and appeared in the Dugan-directed film 'Grown Ups.'
