About Valerie Perrine (1943 – )
Valerie Perrine was born in Galveston, Texas. Perrine started in show business as a Las Vegas show girl. She was a pin up in Playboy Magazine in 1972.

In her second film, Slaughterhouse 5, in 1972, she played Montana Wildhack; the saucy, adult movie queen, provided as a mate for the time-tripping Billy Pilgrim, a WWII veteran with PTSD, who was kidnapped from Earth and put on display in a zoo, by aliens on the planet Tralfamador. The story was based on the Kurt Vonnegut sci-fi novel.

In 1974, Valerie Perrine starred in the Bob Fosse film, Lenny, which was nominated for 6 Oscars, with Dustin Hoffman in the title role. Perrine plays Honey Bruce, the stripper wife of the the oft-arrested-for-obscenities, satirical comic Lenny Bruce. Valerie Perrine won the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her portrayal. She was also nominated for an Oscar for the same role.

Valerie Perrine plays Eve Teschmacher, the girlfriend of Superman's evil enemy, Lex Luthor, in Superman (1978), where she intervenes to save Superman's life, as well as reprising the role in Superman II (1980), where she springs Lex Luthor from prison.

Perrine also played a small part in the 2000 hit, What Women Want, with the unwilling female-mind reader Mel Gibson and the unwilling object of his affection, Helen Hunt.
