She was born Lisa Marie Smith in New Jersey, and began to model in the 1980s, when she posed for infamous photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. It was photographer Bruce Weber who got her involved in the Calvin Klein campaign, and she appeared briefly in Weber’s Chet Baker documentary, “Let’s Get Lost.” She met director Tim Burton in 1992, was briefly engaged to him, and appeared in his films “Ed Wood,” “Mars Attack,” “Sleepy Hollow” and “Planet of the Apes.” She was the inspiration for the main character in “Corpse Bride” (2005, voiced by Helena Bonham Carter), as well as “Sally” in Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993). She has recently found a niche in horror films, appearing in “We Are Still Here” in 2015.

Lisa Marie appeared at the Days of the Dead convention in Chicagoland during the weekend of November 17th-19th, 2017, where HollywoodChicago.com photographer Joe Arce shot this Exclusive Photo.

The next Days of the Dead convention will be take place in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 2nd-4th, 2017. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
