This Omaha-born blonde left her humble beginnings behind when she became a famous fashion model as a teen. Prized for her personality as well as her beauty, King had trouble handling the high life and struggled with an addiction to heroin.
After her photographer boyfriend died of an overdose in 1997, King cleaned up her act and slowly segued into an acting career by playing supporting parts in a number of features. After brief, high-profile romances with actors and rock stars, King settled down with director Kyle Newman in 2007.
Her film career reached a new level soon after, as she achieved leading-lady status in genre movies like The Spirit (2008) and the 2009 My Bloody Valentine remake.
