Mimi Rogers topless in The Rapture (1991)

I started to type “a young Mimi Rogers …” until it dawned on me that she has never been young. She skipped past normal human gestation and proceeded immediately to her 30s. Her official age was 35 when she made this film, but her actual age was more than that.

In 2001, she told an interviewer who asked about her alleged birthdate, “The day and month are right, but the year isn’t. Let’s just leave it at that.”

The reason she seems to have never been young is that she was outside of the entertainment world throughout the 1970s. By the time she entered show biz in 1981, she was somewhere between 25 and 30.
