The Baywatch hottie first began her career in the 1982 classic, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, as Elliot’s dream girl. Years later, she was cast as swimsuit-clad Shauni McClain in the popular lifeguard drama. She’s also appeared in a number of 90’s hit films, such as Under Siege and The Beverly Hillbillies.
