Bio: Bo Derek is a Golden Globe-nominated
American film actress and model. Derek started modelling to pay for a new surf
board, and after a few shoots and a deodorant advert found she had a knack for
performance. She got herself a Hollywood agent, and on the audition trail met
director John Derek, 30 years her senior. John filed for divorce from his wife,
actress Linda Evans, and the pair moved to Germany to avoid John being charged
with statutory rape under U.S. law due to Bo only being 16. The couple returned
to America soon after Bo's 18th birthday, and married in 1976. They remained
married until his death in 1998...
