Born in London, Patsy Kensit had appeared in "The Great Gatsby" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" by
the time she was seven. At age 18, in "Absolute Beginners", she got to sing a song she composed herself: "Having It
All", which became a minor hit in the U.K. She was drop-dead-gorgeous in 1989's "Lethal Weapon 2", which is where I
discovered her. Sadly, her career hasn't taken off on this side of the Atlantic, even though she's well-regarded by
movie critics. Her other films include "Twenty-One" (1991) and "Angels & Insects" (1995). She's also
gotten plenty of attention for her marriages to Simple Minds lead singer Jim Kerr and to Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher.
While with Gallagher, she mostly took a hiatus from acting -- declining, for example, an offer to play Ross' English
wife Emily on "Friends".
