More Trivia:

Hannah is missing part of her left index finger. In a 2001 story in The Sunday Times of South Africa, Hannah explained: "I got my finger stuck in the pulley of a well at my grandmother's house when I was three." Good luck spotting the missing digit onscreen: it's almost always hidden behind gloves, coats, guns, etc.

Daryl Hannah And Her Movies:

After years of semi-obscurity, Daryl Hannah is suddenly hot stuff. She starredin four films in 2003, including the critically acclaimed indie "Norfolk," by the Polish Brothers, Quentin Tarantino's stylish spectacle "Kill Bill Vol 1." and John Sayles quiet and provactive "Casa de los Babies." There's plenty more on the way. Miramax released "Kill Bill, Vol. 2" in 2004 and two more indie films - "The Job" and "The Big Empty" - will be released this year. Hannah has also been cast in "Silver City," another Sayles-directed effort. In addition to her success on the screen, the willowy blond actress is also baring her body for a spread in "Playboy" to let the world know that forty-three is beautiful.

Hannah originally trained as a ballet dancer before switching to theater, training under the guidance of Stella Adler. Her remarkable performance in Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" (1982) set her career into high gear. Hannah won fans' favor in the PG romantic comedy "Splash" (1984) playing the endearing mermaid Madison that wins young Tom Hanks' heart. Critics went on to praise Hannah's interpretation of a nerdish hairdress in "Steel Magnolias" (1989) and in the television film "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. (1993).
