Goonies Never Die

12/27/2008 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The 38-year-old showed up at a Broadway premiere a little while back, looking lucid.

Was conceived while her unmarried parents Keith Carradine and Shelley Plimpton were performing together in the Broadway production of "Hair" in 1970.

Became a vegetarian as a teen after late boyfriend, River Phoenix, introduced her to the lifestyle.

Looking lucid?? Who comes up with this? She was never the most attractive girl in the world therefore not likely to be a huge star but she has always seemed nice and unassuming. She leads a quiet life and has worked steadily over the years. She was in a good Law and Order episode a couple years ago, too.

"was never the most attractive and therefore won't be a huge star"???????? stupid comment

That's what I just said. She has worked steadily (perhaps you missed that part). I was not trying to dump on her looks, in fact, I was trying to beat some of the snarky posters to the punch, by stating the obvious. She IS not all that glamorous or a real knock out. She has an every day look about her that will enable her to work for decades. Unlike Jolie and Aniston, Alba or Megan Fox, et al. Touchy.

What are you talking about Salem? She was a Calvin Klein model in the 80ies. Not everyone thinks looking like a Barbie-doll is something to strive for. Besides, it does not automatically mean talent and gives you work you can be proud of. Point in case: Jessica Simpson

i agree with salem wholeheartedly. martha is a talented actress... but would/will never be the big hollywood princess due to her looks. i think she's lucky that way. she has steadily worked and doesn't have to worry about the industry turning it's back on her (how have you been, cameron?).

on another note... salem... are you male or female? i'm interested because i named my daughter salem; she's 7 months old. you are the first salem i've encounter while on the web.

Martha plimpton talked to Esquire magazine about River Phoenix. “They brought him up to believe he was a pure soul who had a message to deliver about the world. But in moving around all the time, changing schools, keeping to themselves and distrusting America, they created this utopian bubble so that River was never socialized. He was never prepared for dealing with crowds and with Hollywood.

I think Martha doesn’t trust Hollywood after River Phoenix over-dosed on drugs. Blame it on Hollywood.

Ambarbituate – Instead of playing a Hollywood princess, she would be happy playing a Hollywood villan. - Martha Plimpton friend “Stevie” for Lili Taylor in the film “I shot Andy Warhol.”

Oh Fer Sure    

I've always liked Martha's witty and sarcastic performances. She was great in Beautiful Girls. I love the part when she gets the "brown" diamond. I think the problem is Hollywood hates intelligent actresses.
