Lots of people had crushes on her back in the 1980s, but just take a look at her now…

Linda Kozlowski rose to international fame through her role as Sue Charlton in “Crocodile Dundee,” a film that marked a significant turning point in her career, starring alongside Paul Hogan.

Despite the success of the “Dundee” series and a few subsequent performances, Kozlowski gradually retreated from the Hollywood limelight.

Born on January 7, 1958, in Fairfield, Connecticut, Kozlowski pursued her acting aspirations by enrolling in the renowned theater school at the Juilliard School.

After completing her degree in 1981, she made her debut in several off-Broadway productions before transitioning to smaller roles on Broadway and television, notably appearing alongside Dustin Hoffman in the television film “Death of a Salesman.”

Kozlowski’s journey to stardom was not without its challenges. Following her role in “Death of a Salesman,” she relocated to California after working as a waitress, where she was graciously hosted by her mentor Dustin Hoffman and his wife at their Malibu beach house.

It was during this time that Hoffman suggested her for the role of Sue Charlton in “Crocodile Dundee,” a role that would catapult her to fame virtually overnight.

Despite the film’s immense success, particularly in Australia where it was released early, Kozlowski felt she did not receive the recognition she deserved in Hollywood.

Although she appeared in the “Crocodile Dundee” sequels, Kozlowski turned down numerous offers for roles that typecast her as the comedic actor’s girlfriend, eventually opting to retire from acting altogether after the third installment of the franchise.

During the filming of the “Crocodile Dundee” series, Kozlowski fell in love with her co-star Paul Hogan, whom she married in 1990. Their union produced a son named Chance in 1998, but sadly ended in divorce in 2014.

Following her divorce from Hogan, Kozlowski chose to chart her own course in life, receiving a substantial settlement and shifting her focus to Morocco.

There, she met Moulay Hafid Baba, a local tour guide, with whom she co-founded Dream My Destiny, a luxury travel company based in Marrakech.

Through their venture, Kozlowski found fulfillment in creating tailor-made travel experiences for clients, drawing on her intuition and experiences from her acting career.

While Kozlowski may have bid farewell to the entertainment industry, her portrayal of Sue Charlton in “Crocodile Dundee” remains etched in memory.

At 63 years old, she embraces a vibrant and fulfilling life in Morocco, finding joy and purpose in creating real-life adventures for others through Dream My Destiny.
