Carol Alt

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carol Alt (born December 1, 1960) is an American supermodel and actress.

Biography

Early life

Alt, the third of four children, was born in East Williston, Long Island, New York to Muriel, who had worked as a print and runway model before her marriage, and Anthony Alt, who was in the army reserves. She has two sisters, Christine and Karen, and a brother, Anthony, and was raised in College Point, New York and attended Hofstra University.

Career

Alt's first big break in modeling in 1980, when she was featured on the cover of Harper's Bazaar magazine, but she gained real fame in 1982 when she was featured on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She has also been a consultant with the "Le Mirador" skin-care line. Alt was one of the first models to parlay fame in that area into success in other areas, such as acting, launching product lines, and book writing, paving the way for the more recent models to do so, such as Kathy Ireland.

Since 1986 she has been one of the leads in a variety of movies; mostly Italian, but one of her most recent starring roles was in the Canadian movie Snakehead Terror. She played "Karen Oldham" in the TV adaptation of Peter Benchley's Amazon(1999). Her TV guest roles include a voice role in the "Peggy's Pageant Fever" episode of King of the Hill, first broadcast November 10, 1998.

Alt also has written a book, Eating In The Raw: A Beginner's Guide To Getting Slimmer, Feeling Healthier, And Looking Younger the Raw-food Way, promoting eating only raw foods. She placed #5 on askmen.com's list of "Top 10 Supermodels Of All Time", behind only Kathy Ireland, Christie Brinkley, Gisele Bundchen, and Cindy Crawford.

Personal life

In 1983, she married Ron Greschner, a professional ice hockey player with the New York Rangers. They divorced in 1996, and she is currently in a relationship with Russian ice hockey star Alexei Yashin, a player recently with the New York Islanders and a man thirteen years her junior. Contrary to popular belief, they are not married; in an interview with ESPN in 2006, Yashin denied that he is married to Alt and instead said they are in a committed relationship. Alt's supermodel status is questioned by Howard Stern Radio Show personality Fred Norris. Norris contends, quite vigorously, that Alt is not a supermodel. This has led to many humorous moments for the show, usually coinciding with Carol Alt's appearances.

Alt was referred to as "The Face" by Life Magazine, a reference to her striking appearance.

She's beautiful. One of the classic supermodels! Do you have any of her Redbook covers? They're nice, but I can't find them anywhere. The one that was already posted is the only one that I can find.

Much better quality than mine! Do you have a cropped version that shows just the front cover of that Sports Illustrated issue from '82?

No, sorry, I do not.

Do you have more of her Mademoiselle covers?

And, do you have covers of models from the 90s (like Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, and Tyra Banks)? If so, post some in their forums.

Thanks again.
