Pia Zadora (born Pia Alfreda Schipani, May 4, 1954) is an American actress and singer. After years of work as a child actress on Broadway, in regional theater and in the film Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, she came to national attention when, following her starring role in the critically lambasted Butterfly, she won a Golden Globe Award as New Star of the Year over such acclaimed new talents as Kathleen Turner (Body Heat), Rachel Ward (Sharky's Machine), Craig Wasson (Four Friends) and Elizabeth McGovern and Howard Rollins (both in Ragtime).
When her film career failed to take off, she "reinvented" herself as a singer of popular standards and released several successful albums featuring her solo performance backed by a full symphonic orchestra. Few performers have been more publicly ridiculed than Pia Zadora, due primarily to the perception that her career was solely the result of her marriage to billionaire Meshulam Riklis, whom she met when she was 17 and he was 49, but also to her arguably poor choice in film vehicles (she earned two consecutive Razzie Awards for her first two starring vehicles, Butterfly and The Lonely Lady). Zadora, however, demonstrated a resilient quality and a good-humored sense of self-parody (playing herself in such comedies as Feel the Motion, Troop Beverly Hills, and Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult) that endeared her to many, including the late Frank Sinatra, who toured with her in 1990, and during her years as a singer she earned the respect of many critics who had previously written her off.[
