Dancer, singer and actress Cynthia Rhodes was hot for a minute back in the early to mid 80s. She had of string of memorable roles in films like Flashdance, Dirty Dancing and Staying Alive. Later she went on to front Animotion and managed to beat all the edginess out of the band in the process. Nowadays it seems she’s mostly known for being Richard Marx’s wife.
Her most famous role was that of dancer Tina Tech. She spends much of Flashdance waiting for her nebbish accountant boyfriend to call. Still the dance routine is pretty fly.
