Mary Woronov was born in Palm Beach, Florida (some sources cite New York as her birthplace).
A surgeon's stepdaughter, she was raised in Brooklyn Heights and
attended Cornell University as a sculpting major. After a class
trip to 'Andy Warhol' (qv) 's Silver Factory, she joined Warhol's
entourage and starred in a number of his underground films and
appeared as a go-go dancer in the Velvet Underground's Exploding
Plastic Inevitable shows. She left the Factory in the late 1960s
and, after recovering from a heavy methamphetamine addiction, spent
two years in Europe with a friend; during this time, Warhol was
shot by Valerie Solanas, and with the altered Factory dynamic,
"there was nothing to go back to." She supported herself with work
in off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway theater, then "got scared and
got married" to director/producer Theodore Gershuny. She appeared
in of his films, _Kemek (1970)_ (qv), _Silent Night, Bloody Night
(1973)_ (qv), and _Sugar Cookies (1973)_ (qv). After the marriage
broke up, Woronov moved to Los Angeles at the invitation of friend
'Paul Bartel' (qv), where she appeared on the daytime soap
_"Somerset" (1970)_ (qv) and had a memorable role in Bartel's
_Death Race 2000 (1975)_ (qv). Her best and most famous role came
in 1982, with the part of Mary Bland in Bartel's black comedy
_Eating Raoul (1982)_ (qv). A major cult figure as an actress, she
is also an accomplished painter and writer, having published three
books--Wake for the Angels: Paintings and Stories, the
autobiography Swimming Underground: My Years in the Warhol Factory,
and the novel Snake.
