Margaux Louise Hemingway (Margaux Louise Hemingway)

Margaux Louise Hemingway

Movie Actress and Model.  She was featured in 16 films, from 1976 to 1996, most of the films were minor. Born in Portland, Oregon, she grew up on a farm in Ketchum, Idaho.  Her father, Jack Hemingway, was the son of Nobel prize author Ernest Hemingway.  By 1975, when she was 21, she had a budding film career, a million dollar contract with Faberge perfume, and her face was on numerous magazines around the world.  She was married twice, to Erroll Wetson (1977 to 1978) and to Bernard Foucher (1979 to 1982), with both marriages ending in divorce.  By 1986, she was having financial problems and trouble finding work, and she turned to alcohol to ease her problems.  In 1988, she checked herself into the Betty Ford Center for rehabilitation from an alcohol problem.  She supported herself later in life by autographing her photos from Playboy Magazine, and working on a psychic telephone hotline.  By 1995, she lived alone, with no children, no husband or boyfriend, and few friends.  She was last seen alive on June 29.  She was found by police on her bed, with her legs propped up on a pillow, and a book in her lap.  She left no note.  After her death, her sister, Mariel Hemingway, stated that she believed Margeaux died of an epileptic seizure (as originally reported by the coroner), and not from an accidental drug overdose, as reported by the police.
