Actress and model Suzy Amis

Suzy Amis started out as a model with the Ford agency and made the transition to acting in the mid-1980s. In 2000, she made the transition to being film director James Cameron's wife, and she retired from acting. 

But in the twentieth century, when she was acting, she made numerous movies, including Rocket Gibraltar, The Ballad of Little Jo (where she starred as an unwed mother who poses as a man on the American frontier), and the terrorist action movie Blown Away.  And yes, she did appear in one of James Cameron's movies - she played Lizzy Calvert in her future husband's 1997 epic Titanic.   

James Cameron is actually her second husband. Suzy Amis was previously married to Sam Robards, son of Lauren Bacall (an earlier honoree on this blog) and Jason Robards. They had a son together, and she and Cameron have sired three children.
