In a career spanning more than 20 years, the American actress has made some daring choices and enjoyed taking risks. She made her debut aged 17, in Stephen Frears’ Dangerous Liaisons  and in Terry Gilliam’s The Adventures of Baron Munchausen . She became Quentin Tarantino’s muse, playing in Pulp Fiction  (Palme d’or winner, 1994) and in Kill Bill  (volumes 1 & 2), both presented at the Festival de Cannes.
