She was born Lisa Marie Smith in New Jersey, and began to model in the 1980s, when she posed for infamous photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. It was photographer Bruce Weber who got her involved in the Calvin Klein campaign, and she appeared briefly in Weber’s Chet Baker documentary, “Let’s Get Lost.” She met director Tim Burton in 1992, was briefly engaged to him, and appeared in his films “Ed Wood,” “Mars Attack,” “Sleepy Hollow” and “Planet of the Apes.” She was the inspiration for the main character in “Corpse Bride” (2005, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter), as well as “Sally” in Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993). She has recently found a niche in horror films, appearing in “We Are Still Here” in 2015.

Lisa Marie appeared at the Days of the Dead convention in Chicagoland during the weekend of November 17th-19th, 2017, where HollywoodChicago.com photographer Joe Arce shot this Exclusive Photo.

The next Days of the Dead convention will be take place in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 2nd-4th, 2017. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue. The Chicago transplant, by way of Dallas, is moving on (he says temporarily) from the city that inspired his last show, “Meatball Seance,” after notorious and successful runs of his other one-man shows, “John Michael and the Order of the Penix” and “Dementia Me.” His farewell performance is his latest, another laugh riot, “It’s NOT ALL About You John Michael,” and will take place at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood on March 1st, 2019.

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things. One, you may visit parts of Chicago you’ve never seen before – in this case a plant store in an industrial area south of Humboldt Park – and two, you will see some daring and outside-the-box stagings. “The Soccer Player in the Closet” is their latest production – a World Premiere – and it provides what the title implies and beyond. The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
