Actress Melanie Griffith became known for strong-but-sexy characters in such films as "Working Girl" (1988) and "Something Wild" (1986), although, at times her multiple marriages and well-documented battles with addiction threatened to overshadow her considerable talent. The daughter of Hitchcock favorite and "The Birds" (1963) star Tippi Hedren, Griffith began her film career while still a teenager in Arthur Penn's "Night Moves" (1975), as an oversexed runaway. Both personal and professional ups-and-downs followed, with a short first marriage to Don Johnson, as well as notable performances in films like "Body Double" (1984). After her Oscar-nominated performance in "Working Girl" Griffith was at the height of her profession when her drug addiction and a string of ill-advised movie projects like "The Bonfire of the Vanities" (1990) diminished her star power. As her second marriage to Johnson collapsed amidst his alcoholic relapse and rumors of infidelity, Griffith met and fell in love with Spanish heartthrob Antonio Banderas. Armed with a newfound stability, the actress took on more respectable film roles, most notably an acclaimed portrayal of a drug-addicted criminal opposite James Woods in "Another Day in Paradise" (1998). Always full of surprises, Griffith defied expectations when she wowed audiences with her Broadway debut in the smash hit musical "Chicago" in 2003. Although later projects lacked the high-profile of her earlier work and more rehab stints were required to keep her personal life on track, this child of Hollywood was nothing if not a survivor.
