Sherilyn Fenn Bio, Affairs and Relationship History, Partner – Dylan Stewart

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, there were less than a handful of women who could contest with Sherilyn Fenn as the sexiest and most beautiful and woman in Hollywood. Due to this, the actress, with many features on the covers of magazines like Rolling Stone, Playboy, Entertainment Weekly, and Harper’s Bazaar, appeared in numerous sexploitation movies, however, she would be fondly remembered for her roles in Twin Peaks (1990–1991), Boxing Helena (1993) and Rude Awakening (1998–2001).

Sherilyn Fenn – Bio

Sherilyn Fenn was born Sheryl Ann Fenn to Arlene Quatro and Leo Fenn on the 1st of February, 1965 in Detroit, Michigan. She was born into a family – heavily invested in the music business as her mother was a keyboard player while her father was a music talent manager. One of the bands in which her father managed was that of rock musician Suzi Quatro, her mother’s sister.

Fenn lived all across America as a child due to her mother’s work. By the time she turned 17, however, the family settled in Los Angeles, California, where the teenager opted not to start a new school and complete her high school, instead, she chose to enrol at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute to study acting. After a few years, Fenn was able to land roles in a number of low-budget and made for television films like The Wild Life (1984), Silence of the Heart (1984), and Out of Control (1985).

At around this time, Sherilyn Fenn was one of the most talked about actresses in Hollywood as she was becoming a sex symbol. Due to this, many directors and producers sort after her to make sexploitation movies such as Two Moon Junction (1988), which she said made her take a brief hiatus from acting. In 1990, Fenn returned to take up the role of Audrey Horne in the TV series Twin Peaks. Her performance on the show earned her an Emmy and Golden Globe Award nomination as she was now a certified sex symbol. She cemented that fact by appearing on the cover and then in a nude pictorial in Playboy Magazine’s December 1990 edition.

Other films and series in which Fenn appeared in around this time include Dillinger (1991), Desire and Hell at Sunset Motel (1992), Diary of a Hitman (1992), and Of Mice and Men (1992). In recent times, Fenn has appeared in series like Gilmore Girls (2006-2007), Ray Donovan (2014), and S.W.A.T. (2017-2018), among others.

Affairs and Relationship History

From the time she broke into the popularity scene in the early 1980s, Sherilyn Fenn has been linked to a long list of men. The gorgeous looking actress, who has been listed severally as one of the most beautiful women in the world, notably by US Weekly in 1990 and People Magazine in 1991, first dated English musician and actor Billy Idol, who is best known as a member of punk rock band Generation X. When that relationship ended, Fenn reportedly moved on to Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland but that relationship was brief.

In 1984, Fenn was linked to actor Chris Penn who she had appeared alongside in The Wild Life (1984). It is not clear how long the pair were together before she entered into a high profile relationship with pop singer Prince in 1985. The relationship between the two was shortlived, giving room for her to move on to her co-star on the short film Dummies (1985), actor Johnny Depp, who had just come out of a 2-year marriage. The two dated for several years and were engaged to get married before parting ways due to conflicting schedules.

Between 1989 and 1991, Sherilyn Fenn dated photographer Barry Hollywood. A year later, she began dating guitarist and songwriter Toulouse Holliday who she met while filming the romantic comedy Three of Hearts (1993). The two soon later got engaged and welcomed a son named Myles on the 15th of December, 1993. Following the birth of their child, Fenn went ahead to exchange vows with Holliday in 1994. Their marriage lasted until 1997 when it ended in divorce.
