Phoebe Cates and Matthew Modine in Private School - Die Superanmacher (1983)

Since her 'retirement' from films, she and her movie star husband, Kevin Kline, divide their time between their country estate in upstate New York and their luxury penthouse in Manhattan's tony upper east side. When not supporting her husband's continuing fine stage and film work, she fills her time attending openings and benefits and her favorite activity, hosting dinner parties and 'dishing the dirt' with her celebrity friends.

Appeared on the cover of Seventeen Magazine at the age of 15 with braces. It was her first big modeling job, so she told the magazine that she would have her braces taken off before she shot her cover, but they insisted that she keep them.

One of her first jobs at the age of 15 was being a plainclothes security person at Gallery Drug Store. She was given a basket and walked up and down the aisles pretending to shop whilst patrolling for shoplifters. She only ever caught one old woman stealing Band-Aids, but didn't turn her in.
