You might remember her from the 80s flick, Private School – where she played Phoebe Cates’ hot, rich friend.
If you doubt Private School’s legacy or Betsy’s contributions, then please read chocco bikkies (Australia) 10-Star review on the movie:
This movie was a great watch for me as a young girl. I have fond memories, the crude jokes, the gratuitous nudity and the humor and stereotypes that made the movie a classic in my books.
Betsy Russell on nude horseback is memorable and unforgettable, the sheer brassiness of this lass and do-whatever-it-takes attitude to steal Matthew Modine from Phoebe Cates by being terribly unsubtle in her advances to him.
This is where I feel in love with Matthew Modine and also was my first naughty flick that I saw,nevertheless I think the casting was great and I don’t think there has been any movie that has really outdone it in this genre. Great toilet humor.
But being hot years ago alone isn’t enough to qualify for AssFromThePast status; she’s got to have the goods today – as Betsy, recurring star in the Saw series, does.
There are times when “big and wide” is quite a compliment.
Here’s Betsy today gracing Facebook (white sweater)…
I’d make a run at any of those broads, but Betsy the Bully first.
Solid scene from Private School Betsy with Matthew Modine (who can’t fucking act).
