Like fellow Oscar winner Rita Moreno, Patricia Arquette has the unique distinction of playing a hooker on both the big and small screen.
In “True Romance,” Patricia stars as Alabama Whitman. She is on the run from her pimp after she steals his cocaine. The owners are after her to try and reclaim the coke.

In “Lost Highway,” Patricia plays the dual role of Renee Madison / Alice Wakefield. It is a very convoluted plot to explain. But her second character, Alice, is a porn actress.
