Cherie Currie observed

In the 1980 film Foxes, Cherie Currie made her movie debut opposite Jodie Foster as a tough Valley teenager with a soft side who gets in trouble with drugs over the hill in the Hollywood club scene. In real life then, Currie was a punk rocker with The Runaways. Today, she uses a chainsaw and a blowtorch to shape logs into mermaids and other art pieces at a lot on Topanga Canyon Boulevard in Chatsworth. “I don’t miss being an actress,” she told the Daily News. “I’d much rather be doing this.” She also has a website called Chainsawchick.
