Gary Wallace and Wyatt Donnelly were two of the weirdest kids to come out of Shermer, Illinois — the magical-yet-boring fictional town where all John Hughes films take place. After a long, rough day at school getting pantsed by Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr., they decide to build the perfect woman on their clunky '80s computer. With the help of a lightning bolt and a government mainframe, somehow, a real, live woman appears in their bathroom. That woman was played by supermodel Kelly LeBrock.

Kelly was already a pretty well-known face when Weird Science came out in 1985 through some high-profile modeling gigs, including that Pantene "don't hate me because I'm beautiful" ad and Christian Dior spreads. After Weird Science and the 1984 film The Woman in Red, which she also starred in, she became a sex symbol of the decade! But what's she doing now?

Now, Kelly has kind of a different calling — shoveling manure. We're not kidding. In August, she told Daily Mail that she turned her back on her glitzy life to go live on a ranch in Santa Barbara, California with her kids and, eventually, a horse named Kiwi.

Now, Kelly has kind of a different calling — shoveling manure. We're not kidding. In August, she told Daily Mail that she turned her back on her glitzy life to go live on a ranch in Santa Barbara, California with her kids and, eventually, a horse named Kiwi.

"I grow all my veggies and make my own cheese and yogurt," Kelly, now 53, said of her new life. "To work the land full time keeps me so fit that I haven't worked out in seven years. I clean the pool myself, muck out the pigs and the horses."

"Sometimes I sleep three nights in a row outside," she continued. "Just me and my horse. It brings me closer to the earth."

The transformation from sex symbol to earth goddess was partially inspired from a very public, nasty divorce from Steven Seagal, so while she worked on some smaller projects she stayed out of the spotlight for the most part.

'I had absolutely no self-esteem. I hated myself," Kelly admitted. "I decided to swap my old life in Beverly Hills for a new one in the country, in Santa Barbara.'

Now that her kids are all grown up, though, she's talking to the press once again. She's writing a tell-all memoir, she says, and has her eye on returning to acting.

Unfortunately though, when we last heard from Kelly in November 2013, it was for a concerning reason. She allegedly blew a .16 on a breathalyzer test and was charged with a DUI after getting pulled over for driving erratically in Santa Barbara. Her representatives have not commented on the incident.

Not all recent updates are concerning, at least; her daughter Arrisa just got a modeling contract, so it looks like mama and daughter have something in common besides looking gorgeous.
