Life and careerEdit
Born on November 16, 1970 in New York City, Plimpton is the daughter of Keith Carradine and Shelley Plimpton. She began her career as a model for Calvin Klein, and later had her first major role in film with The River Rat; her breakout in the industry was with The Goonies, which began a trend with her playing tomboyish characters.
Outside of film, Plimpton has acted in a number of theater shows, including some on Broadway. She is also an advocate for abortion and LBGT rights.
Behind the scenesEdit
During production for The Goonies, Plimpton made a bet with Richard Donner that she would stop biting her nails. He paid up while filming the DVD audio commentary track.
