1995 was a banner year for Hutton: she was cast in the ensemble of the CBS soap "Central Park West" playing wealthy socialite Linda Fairchild and her late night talk show "Lauren Hutton and ..." also debuted. The talk show was short-lived but Hutton continued to work steadily, appearing in film roles and in the occasional hosting gig. The actress, an avid motorcycle enthusiast, made headlines in October 2000 when at age 55 she was in a serious motorcycle accident while on a 100-mile ride near Las Vegas with bikers and fellow celebrities including Dennis Hopper and Jeremy Irons-who reportedly gave her a full face helmet just minutes before her crash-to celebrate a planned motorcycle exhibit at the Hermitage-Guggenheim museum. After losing control on a curve, she skidded about 100 feet and went airborne, ultimately suffering multiple leg and arm fractures, broken ribs, a punctured lung, cuts and bruises. The actress subsequently traveled down a long road of physical rehabilitation. Ever the survivor, Hutton endured and soon became the spokeswoman for her own signature brand of cosmetics, Lauren Hutton's Good Stuff, sold via the Home Shopping Network.
