Kris Kristofferson
Singer/songwriter/actor Kris Kristofferson (1976's A Star Is Born, 1988's Big-Top Pee-wee, 1998's Blade, 2005's The Wendell Baker Story, 2009's He's Just Not That Into You) is best known for writing early '70s hits like "Me and Bobby McGee," "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," and "Help Me Make It Through the Night." Janis Joplin, his girlfriend until her untimely death, recorded "Me and Bobby McGee," which was posthumously released and became her only #1 hit. Kris got his big break by landing his helicopter in Johnny Cash's backyard and personally handing him tapes of his music. Kristofferson and Cash were members of country supergroup The Highwaymen from 1985-1995, along with Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. Kris is the brother of late character actress Karen Kirschenbauer, who had bit parts in several TV movies and films before her death in 2005. His daughter, Tracy Kristofferson, is an actress who appeared in her father's films Trouble in Mind (1985) and Night of the Cyclone (1990), as well as the TV movie Another Pair of Aces: Three of a Kind (1991). His first wife, singer Rita Coolidge, appeared with him in 1973's Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid.
