Kim McGuire, known for her iconic character Mona “Hatchet-Face” Malnorowski in John Waters’ cult musical comedy “Cry-Baby,” has died, according to the official Divine Facebook page. She was 60.
Born in Louisiana, McGuire rose to fame with her role as the boisterous and strange-looking Hatchet-Face in the 1990 film. Her facial features were greatly exaggerated with makeup and prosthetics for the part.
McGuire followed up “Cry-Baby” with bit parts in “Acting on Impulse,” “Serial Mom,” the HBO series “Dream On” and “On the Air.”
