Bo Derek Biography

Born November 20th, 1956 in Long Beach, CA., Bo is the oldest of four children, followed by her brother, and two sisters. Christened Mary Cathleen Collins, she was known as Cathleen or Cathy in this Irish/German/Dutch-California family.

Recently, in Santa Barbara Harbor, Bo was rigging a Hobie Cat Sport to sail and someone remarked this was no problem for Cathy as she's always been really athletic and a great sailor. Turns out these were some old friends from the days her father worked in advertising for Hobie. Bo describes her father's connection to Hobie as just one of his fun jobs, "He took care to find jobs which involved the 'toys' he liked, so he was always bringing home prototypes to try out. "To us kids, it was great fun. As a teenager I wasn't very ambitious and had no big plans. I certainly never dreamed of going into films, my main interest was the beach and I assumed I'd end up working in a surf shop." Read Full Bio >>
