Life and career

Camp was born in San Francisco, California. She had small early roles in films like Funny Lady with Barbra Streisand in 1975. She also appeared in the Bruce Lee movie Game of Death as his girlfriend, Ann (her scenes were shot with a lookalike as Bruce had died long before she became involved). Camp portrayed a Playmate in Francis Coppola's 1979 film Apocalypse Now (followed by an actual pictorial in the October 1979 Playboy), though most of her footage was cut from the initial theatrical release. She would later feature more heavily in Coppola's Redux cut.

She has worked steadily in film comedies like Peter Bogdanovich's They All Laughed, 1983's Valley Girl and the Michael J. Fox comedy Greedy. She often is cast as a police officer. Camp has been nominated twice for the Worst Supporting Actress Golden Raspberry Award – first, in 1982, for The Seduction, and then, in 1993, for Sliver. In 1999, she had a small part as character Tracy Flick's overbearing mother in the film Election, with Reese Witherspoon as Tracy. While continuing to act in shows like HBO's Entourage, Camp is also now making a name for herself as a producer.

She was married to John Goldwyn, a Paramount executive, from 1986 to 2001. They have one daughter, Emily. She appeared in the episode "Simple Explanation" of House M.D. that first aired on April 6, 2009.
