Before starring in the 1980s classic, Phoebe Cates also appeared in the 1982 film Paradise. In that flick, she appeared completely naked in a shower scene. Cates also reportedly filmed a topless hot tube scene in Fast Times that was cut out because of the gratuitous nudity.
"If the film, play or any project I'm involved in requires some sort of violence or nudity to advance the plot, scene or character in any way, then I would be considered unprofessional not to oblige," Phoebe Cates reportedly said. "Of course, I want to make sure — and I think I always have — that the scenes are shot in good taste. I try to have some control; now that I know what I'm capable of including in a contract, I can continue that control. Nudity is not something I necessarily want to avoid and yet it's not the most fun thing in the world to do. It's part of the job as far as I'm concerned because you bare yourself emotionally and that's just as terrifying as baring yourself physically. It's all part of acting."
Phoebe Cates met her husband, actor Kevin Kline, while auditioning for a role in his movie The Big Chill. Cates lost out on the gig to Meg Tilly, but ultimately got her man anyway. The couple also has two children together.
After her Fast Times role, Phoebe Cates appeared in several other '80s films, most notably Gremlins and its sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch. She also had a starring role in the '90s flick Drop Dead Fred. But she has not appeared on-screen since The Anniversary Party in 2001. Instead, she has been running the Blue Tree boutique in New York City since 2005.
