Early life and education
Linda Kozlowski was born on January 7, 1958 in Fairfield, Connecticut, USA, where she was raised by her parents of Polish descent, Stanislaw ‘Stanley’ Kozlowski and Helena Parniawska, better known as Helen E Kozlowki. Linda graduated from Andrew Warde High School in 1976 and then graduated from the prestigious Juilliard School in drama and opera.
Kozlowski’s first major appearance was in the 1982 off-Broadway production of “Death of a Salesman”, in which she played Miss Forsythe – in 1985 she signed on to play the same character in the on-screen version of the show. Written by Arthur Miller, it is said to be one of the best plays of the 20. have originatede century. It is the story of a man who discovers that he has lost his identity and cannot accept the changes taking place around him and within himself. The play is the last 24 hours of this man’s life, made up of dreams and memories, but also of quarrels and confrontations with his family. “Death of a Salesman” won both a Tony Award and a Pulitzer Prize in 1949 for best play, the year it first opened. Since then, it has run 742 performances and has been returned to Broadway four times.
Not only that, it has also won three Tony Awards for best revival.
The role that put Kozlowski on the map was the 1986 Australian film “Crocodile Dundee”, for which she co-starred with actor Paul Hogan, and is the story of an Australian crocodile hunter named Michael J. Dundee. He lives in the outback of Australia, where he and one of his friends run a company that takes clients on safari. A reporter from New York comes to interview Dundee about a horrific crocodile attack in which he narrowly escaped death. On showing her around Sue (the reporter) is confirmed by a crocodile, but Dundee saves her. Sue asks Michael if he wants to go back to New York with her, and since he’s never been out of Australia, he accepts her offer.
Dundee takes in all of the city’s new culture and experiences when he finds himself falling in love with Sue. Linda’s performances earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
In 1988, Linda was cast in “Pass the Ammo,” a film about a dishonest preacher who preaches on television, and his congregation, who are captured by a woman, two of her cousins, and her lover to attempt revenge against the people who stole her inheritance.
In the same year, Kozlowski reprized her role as Sue in the movie “Crocodile Dundee 2”. The sequel follows Dundee in his new life in New York, when he is tracked down by a drug lord from South America, who kidnaps his girlfriend.
The drug dealers are under the impression that since Sue’s ex-husband has photos of him committing illegal acts, Sue must have access to them somehow. The drug lord takes her to Colombia to use her as collateral to get the photos back from him, but Dundee tracks them down to help Sue.
1988 continued to be a busy year for Kozlowski, as she appeared in “Favourite Son,” a miniseries about a vice president contender who gets shot. During the investigation, a conspiracy theory is discovered. The president’s staff is doing everything it can to ensure that the president is returned to the oval office.
Two years later, in 1990, Linda landed a role opposite “Crocodile Dundee” co-star Paul Hogan, who was also the writer for the film titled “Almost an Angel”. It is the story of a petty criminal who is involved in a disturbing accident that leads him to believe that he is an angel, and so he decides that he will perform the tasks that he believes an angel should do.
In 1994, she appeared in two films, first “Backstreet Justice” alongside Paul Sorvino as an investigator haunted by her father’s reputation as a dirty cop. She begins to investigate a series of murders in an unsavory neighborhood when she comes across new information that could lead her to discover the truth about her father’s past.
The other 1994 film she starred in was ‘The Neighbour’ with Rod Steiger, about a pregnant couple who moves into a new house next to a psychopath. The young mother-to-be fears for her unborn baby when the boy next door tells her that she reminds him of his deceased mother.
To date, the last film in which Kozlowski appeared was the third Crocodile Dundee movie, “Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles”. The film follows Dundee and Sue with their young son as they temporarily move to Los Angeles for Sue to run the newspaper her father works for, when the previous boss dies suspiciously, and the two become involved in the investigation.
When asked why she decided to quit acting, Linda said she wasn’t happy with the movie roles that had been offered to her, and “these straight-to-video, schlocky movies I got gave me an ulcer, basically because I was the only one.” was on couple who cared about everything”. She also stated that the fact that she was getting older were the main reasons why she decided to quit acting.
In 1986, on the set of the first “Crocodile Dundee” Kozlowski met Paul Hogan who was then married. The two fell in love and Hogan filed for divorce so he could marry Linda. The couple married on May 5, 1990. Eight years later they welcome their son Chance, and Linda and Paul remained married for another 15 years before filing for divorce in October 201; a year later the divorce was finalized.
Paul Hogan was born on October 8, 1939 in Sydney, Australia. He is known for working as a rigger on the Sydney Harbor Bridge before becoming a writer, television host, comedian and lead actor on the ‘Crocodile Dundee’ series. He also appeared in such films as “Almost an Angel”, “Lightning Jack”, “Flipper” and “Strange Bedfellows”. Paul was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay and was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy from the Golden Globes, which he eventually won. Hogan was married twice before marrying Linda – to the same women. Noelene Edwards and Paul were married from 1958 – 1981, but were separated for less than a year before remarrying.
The couple have five children together, Scott, Clay, Todd, Lauren and Brett Hogan. However, Paul left Noelene for his co-star in what was reportedly one of the ugliest celebrity divorces in Australia.
Hogan is said to be worth $28 million dollars, but the actor ran into trouble with the Australian tax office, which investigated him for tax evasion, but all charges were dropped in 2010.
Linda was reportedly married once before Hogan, but there is no information to back that up. Since divorcing Hogan, Kozlowski has remarried to her business partner Moulay Hafid Babaa from Morocco – Moulay is a guide for the Dream my Destiny company that Linda co-founded.
The couple has been dating for four years and they were both spotted wearing gold wedding rings. Hogan’s manager released a statement saying, “Paul is sincerely delighted with Linda’s news and wishes her the best of luck in her new relationship.”
Sources state that Kozlowski’s net value is estimated to be $12 million.
