Linda Kozlowski rose to fame for her role in the Australian film “Crocodile Dundee”, and for her love affair with her then-married co-star, Paul Hogan, but after two sequels, she quickly disappeared from the radar. So where is she now?

Early life and education

Linda Kozlowski was born on January 7, 1958 in Fairfield, Connecticut, USA, where she was raised by her parents of Polish descent, Stanislaw ‘Stanley’ Kozlowski and Helena Parniawska, better known as Helen E Kozlowki. Linda graduated from Andrew Warde High School in 1976 and went on to graduate from the prestigious Juilliard School in drama and opera.

Kozlowski’s first major appearance was in the 1982 off-Broadway production of “Death of a Salesman”, playing Miss Forsythe – in 1985 she signed on to play the same character in the screen version of the show. The play, written by Arthur Miller, is said to be one of the best plays of the 20e century. It is the story of a man who finds that he has lost his identity and cannot accept the changes around him and within himself. The play is the last 24 hours of this man’s life, made up of dreams and memories, but also of quarrels and confrontations with his family. “Death of a Salesman” won both a Tony Award and a Pulitzer Prize in 1949 for Best Play, the year it first opened. Since then it has run for 742 performances and has been returned to Broadway four times.

Not only that, but it also won three Tony Awards for best revival.

The role that put Kozlowski on the map was the 1986 Australian film “Crocodile Dundee” for which she played the female lead alongside actor Paul Hogan and is the story of an Australian crocodile hunter named Michael J. Dundee. He lives in the outback of Australia where he and one of his friends run a company that takes clients on safari. A reporter from New York comes to interview Dundee about a horrific crocodile attack in which he narrowly escaped death. Sue (the reporter) has a crocodile show her around, but Dundee saves her. Sue asks Michael if he would like to go back to New York with her, and as he has never been out of Australia, he takes her up on her offer.

Dundee takes in all of the city’s new culture and experiences when he finds himself falling in love with Sue. Linda’s performances earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

In 1988, Linda was cast in “Pass the Ammo”, a movie about a dishonest pastor who preaches on television, and his congregation, who are captured by a woman, two of her cousins, and her lover, to try to get revenge on the people who stole her inheritance.

In the same year, Kozlowski reprized her role as Sue in the movie “Crocodile Dundee 2”. The sequel follows Dundee in his new life in New York, when he is tracked down by a South American drug lord, who kidnaps his girlfriend.

The drug dealers are under the impression that because Sue’s ex-husband has pictures of him doing illegal acts, Sue must be able to access them somehow. The drug lord takes her to Colombia to use her as collateral to get the photos back from him, but Dundee tracks them down to save Sue.

1988 continued to be a busy year for Kozlowski, as she appeared in “Favorite Son”, a miniseries about a vice presidential contender who is shot. During the investigation, a conspiracy theory comes to light. The president’s staff is doing everything they can to ensure that the president is placed back in the oval office.

Two years later in 1990, Linda landed a role opposite “Crocodile Dundee” co-star Paul Hogan, who was also the writer for the movie titled “Almost an Angel”. It is the story of a petty criminal who is involved in a disturbing accident that makes him believe he is an angel, which is why he decides that he will perform the duties that an angel is supposed to perform.

In 1994, she appeared in two movies, first “Backstreet Justice” alongside Paul Sorvino as an investigator haunted by her father’s reputation as a dirty cop. She begins to investigate a series of murders in an unsavory neighborhood, when she comes across new information that could lead her to uncover the truth about her father’s past.

The other 1994 movie she starred in was “The Neighbour” with Rod Steiger, about a pregnant couple who move into a new home alongside a psychopath. The young mother-to-be fears for her unborn baby when the boy next door tells her that she reminds him of his dead mother.

To date, the last film Kozlowski appeared in was the third Crocodile Dundee movie, “Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles”. The film follows Dundee and Sue with their young son as they temporarily move to Los Angeles for Sue to run the newspaper her father works for, when the previous boss dies suspiciously and the two become involved in the investigation.

When asked why she decided to retire from acting, Linda said she wasn’t happy with the movie roles she’d been getting, and “these straight-to-video, schlocky movies I got gave me an ulcer, basically because I was the only was on set who cared.” She also stated that the fact that she was getting older were the main reasons why she decided to retire from acting.


In 1986, on the set of the first “Crocodile Dundee”, Kozlowski met Paul Hogan, who was married at the time. The two fell in love and Hogan filed for divorce so he could marry Linda. The couple married on May 5, 1990. Eight years later, they welcome their son Chance, and Linda and Paul remained married for another 15 years before filing for divorce in October 2011; a year later the divorce was final.

Paul Hogan was born on October 8, 1939 in Sydney, Australia. He is known for having worked as a rigger on the Sydney Harbor Bridge, before becoming a writer, TV presenter, comedian and lead actor in the series ‘Crocodile Dundee’. He also appeared in movies such as “Almost an Angel”, “Lightning Jack”, “Flipper”, and “Strange Bedfellows”. Paul was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay and was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy by the Golden Globes, which he went on to win. Hogan was married twice before marrying Linda – to the same women. Noelene Edwards and Paul were married from 1958 to 1981, but were divorced for less than a year before remarrying.

The couple have five children together, Scott, Clay, Todd, Lauren and Brett Hogan. However, Paul left Noelene for his co-star in what was reportedly one of the ugliest celebrity divorces in Australia.

Hogan is said to be worth $28 million, but the actor has run into trouble with the Australian tax authorities, who were investigating him for tax evasion, but all charges were dropped in 2010.

Other relationships

Linda was reportedly married once before Hogan, but there is no information to support that. Since separating from Hogan, Kozlowski has remarried her business partner Moulay Hafid Babaa from Morocco – Moulay is a tour guide for the company Dream my Destiny that Linda co-founded with him.

The pair have been dating for four years and they were both spotted wearing gold wedding bands. Hogan’s manager released a statement saying, “Paul is genuinely delighted with Linda’s news and wishes her all the luck in her new relationship.”

Net value

Sources state that Kozlowski’s net value is estimated at $12 million.

Physical Characteristics

Linda Kozlowski is 5ft7in (1.7m) tall, weighs 130lbs (59kgs) and has vital stats of 35-25-35, with a shoe size of 10 US. She has blue eyes and an ever-changing hair color – at the height of her fame, she sported her signature blonde hair, but has since dyed her hair in various shades of red and brown.

1 [on leaving the acting business] I got an ulcer from these straight-to-video schlocky movies I got, basically because I was the only one on set who cared… Between that and my biological clock, I decided to give it all away.
2 Crocodiles are really cheeky and they come on land.
3 I’ve never had to do anything I didn’t believe in. Sometimes that meant staying poor and waitressing a little longer, but I always stuck with it.
4 After Crocodile Dundee (1986) I turned down a lot of things, most of them where I would play the girlfriend of some funny guy.
