Linda Fiorentino Net Worth $2 Million
She performed in ‘Gotcha!’ directed by Jeff Kanew where Anthony Edwards was her partner but the film was not very successful between the audience as the box office reached only 10 million dollars while the budget was 12.5 million. The following role of Kiki Bridges in Martin Scorsese’s directed film ‘After Hours’ increased Linda net worth because of the positive reviews made by critics, though the film was not loved by cinema goers. Later she was starring in films as ‘The Moderns’ directed by Alan Rudolph, ‘Queens Logic’ directed by Steve Rash, ‘Shout’ by Jeffrey Hornaday, ‘Chain of Desire’ by Temistocles Lopez, ‘Beyond the Law’ by Larry Ferguson and other films which has also made a positive impact on Linda Fiorentino net worth.

[Interview with Roger Ebert, 1995.] I'm single and I've gone on a few dates since The Last Seduction (1994) came out and I could see the disappointment in the eyes of men who thought I was going to be a hot date and teach them all this weird stuff. And then they find out I'm just a normal person, you know, and I don't have leanings towards strange sexual behavior and it's like a disappointment crosses their faces.
Sometimes I have to work because I need the money. You weigh the issues and ask yourself, "Can I wake up every morning and do this?"
Teens aren't just interested in getting laid. I won't believe that's all they're interested in. I have four younger sisters and they're sick of being shown how they're supposed to react in bed.
You constantly have to find something that's challenging, a director who's challenging, co-stars who are challenging. That's what keeps us going
You can talk about movies all you want, but I have this porcelain fetish. I've had it since I was a kid, because there were so many kids in my family, the only place I had any solace was in the bathroom.
They're my favorite two words these days: Oscar reject.
I was still making movies so it wasn't as if I were working in a bar, but they were independent films that couldn't find distributors.
I've been in the bargain basement of the movie business.
I would like to do maybe a smaller romantic comedy.
I would love to have children, yes. Maybe even adopt them. I'm not sure that I should pass on my genes.
I never wear leather.
I don't look at scripts in terms of commercially. I just look at the part, the people involved.
[on getting the part of Bethany in Dogma (1999)] When I read the script, I just said, "There's no way anyone else is allowed to have this part". I thought it was extremely clever and it had very imaginative answers to all my childhood questions about angels and devils and the apostles and all that stuff.
I have a sister who's kind of in the business-she does voice-overs. I think they all watch what I go through and have decided to get married and have children instead. It's a safer bet.
Do you know what my real name is? It's Clorinda. Which is also Italian. They used to call me Clorox when I was a kid.
As actors, the thing we have to fight, more than even the business part of making movies, is boredom.
All I'm thinking about today is cleaning my bathroom.
I go to bed with men, not boys.
Marriage is a financial contract; I have enough contracts already.
The thing that's always bothered me is that, even if you have a strong female character, invariably in the third act she has to say something like, "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you," or she has to become really vulnerable and wimpy and get her comeuppance. Even in something like Thelma & Louise (1991), where you have these two very strong characters, they have to die in the end. What's so special about The Last Seduction (1994) is that none of that happens. Had a Hollywood studio made that film instead of an independent, it would have been very different. She definitely wouldn't have gotten away with what she does get away with.
