Thirty-three years after her big night, the ‘Butterfly’ star reminisces about the uproar over her being named new star of the year – beating out the likes of Kathleen Turner and Elizabeth McGovern – and the melodrama of her life since then, from tumultuous marriages to a golf cart accident that left her unable to taste or smell.

The cult film director — who cast Zadora as a ‘beatnik chick’ in 1988’s Hairspray — tells THR that he’s been a huge fan since he first met Zadora and her then-husband Meshulam Riklis at the 1981 Berlin Film Festival. The odd couple were there to promote Butterfly, for which Zadora would later be controversially awarded a Golden Globe.
