Bo Derek

Bo Derek, born Mary Cathleen Collins (b. November 20, 1956), is an American film actress and model. She was born in Long Beach, California.

She co-starred in the 1979 Blake Edwards film 10, in which she vied with Julie Andrews for Dudley Moore's attention. Her subsequent films have not been well-received by either the public or critics. The 1981 film Tarzan, the Ape Man was a disappointment, and Bolero (1984) essentially ended any possibility of a substantial film career; those two titles earned her the dubious honor of four Golden Raspberry Awards, as well as a nomination in 2000 as the Worst Actress of the Century.

She was married to actor John Derek from 1974 until his death in 1998.

In September 1985, Bo Derek met with Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs, who tried to convert her into becoming a Mac user. Bo was a heavy-duty computer jockey at the time, though favoring the IBM PC persuasion, and she remained a PC user after the unimpressed meeting with Jobs.
