Porizkova’s film debut was in the 1983 modeling mockumentary, Portfolio. Still only seventeen, she managed to look more mature and intelligent than the other more-established models, and she became the “covergirl” for the film. Po?ízková appeared in the 1987 film Anna (which starred Sally Kirkland), receiving good reviews from her patrons at Vogue magazine. It was in 1989 that she had her largest, and best-known role to date, co-starring with Tom Selleck (who was rumored to not get along with her at all) in the film Her Alibi. However, she was nominated for a Golden Raspberry for worst actress for her appearance in the film.

Later, she appeared in Emir Kusturica’s film Arizona Dream, with Johnny Depp and Jerry Lewis, in a minor role as Lewis’s young Polish fiancee. She appeared in the film Thursday. Po?ízková wrote and directed the 2001 film, Roommates. In 2004, she starred in the romantic comedy, Knots, but turned down an opportunity to be a Bond Girl in the 1995 film GoldenEye because of better earnings available to her in modeling at the time, as well as not wishing to take time away from her family.
Her recent television work includes an April 18, 2007 appearance on The Colbert Report after remarks that she found Colbert “extremely attractive.” She most recently appeared on the Starz comedy series Head Case which aired on April 24, 2009.
