Karen Allen is the quintessential bohemian chick next door. Known for her big blue eyes and fresh-faced freckles, as a girl, she landed in New York City to study art and fashion design.
But the call of Shakespeare and counterculture theater changed her career trajectory for good. She made her big screen debut in Animal House as Boone’s adorable girlfriend who is caught post-coitus with her bare-assed professor.
Allen’s most memorable role, however, was that of the feisty Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark. She nearly stole the show as Indy’s hard-drinking damsel in a ripped satin dress.
After Raiders, Allen continued working in films, but eventually all but gave up acting for marriage and motherhood. After her divorce, she embraced her inner hippy and moved to the Berkshire Mountains. Now she keeps busy with yoga, knitting and community theater.
Apart from her infamous butt scene in Animal House, Karen Allen has several great scenes in Until September, where she’s alluringly naked in a bathtub and does some cowgirl sex with a lucky guy. You’ll also get to see her boobs in Backfire and A Small Circle of Friends.
Many peope have said that she looks exactly like Margot Kidder (Superman’s girlfriend) and we think so too. They could pass as twins easily!
