Classic Cuties: Lisa Marie

Lisa Marie Smith met movie director Tim Burton at a New York strip club on New Year’s Eve in 1992, just as she had quit modeling for Calvin Klein. The two claimed to have bonded over mutually witnessing two UFO sightings in California. Engaged to Burton from 1993 to 2001 (although they never married or had children), Lisa Marie [ as she bills herself] appeared in small roles in most of his films made during this time. Many of her films emphasized her voluptuous physique, but gave her minimal dialogue.

Burton abruptly ended their relationship following the premiere of his 2001 remake of Planet of the Apes in which Lisa Marie had a small role alongside Burton's new girlfriend, with whom he later had a son, Helena Bonham-Carter. Lisa Marie has not appeared in a film since then.

She made memorable appearances in Ed Wood, Mars Attacks!, Sleepy Hollow and Planet of the Apes.
