Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Attractive blond leading lady who has eschewed typical ingenue roles in favor of more colorful-and sometimes provocativecharacters. Unfortunately, the finished films don't always justify her choice of parts, though her second-billed role in the 1992 hit The Hand That Rocks the Cradle in which she played a psychotic nanny, gave her stock a definite boost. Californiaborn but educated in Europe, De Mornay studied acting at Lee Strasberg's Actors' Studio before making her film debut with a bit part in Francis Ford Coppola's One From the Heart (1982). She first raised eyebrows as the feisty hooker in Risky Business (1983), then won good reviews for a completely different characterization in The Trip to Bountiful (1985). Her sexually charged performance in Roger Vadim's 1987 Americanized remake of his own And God Created Woman went for naught; the highly touted film bombed. Nonetheless, she deserves credit for sticking to her avowed policy of playing "interesting" modern women.
Pleased with her success in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Touchstone Pictures top-lined her opposite Don Johnson in a 1993 thriller, Guilty as Sin She was also chosen to play Milady de Winter in The Three Musketeers (1993).
