Amy Irving Timeline
1965In 1965, appeared in a play as a walk on opposite Stacy Keach.
1976When she reprised her role from Carrie (1976) as Sue Snell in The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999), Irving can be seen banging on the door of the ill-fated party to be allowed in. She did the same thing in the original film in which her character is banging on the door of the gym to be let in during the famous bloodletting prom scene.
1976The scene in Carrie (1976) where her character Sue is walking along the footpath to put flowers on Carrie's burnt house (dream sequence). Director Brian De Palma wanted Amy to walk backwards in that shot in order to make it look more "dreamy". That is why a car in the background appears to be driving in reverse and birds are flying backwards.
1977Auditioned for the role of 'Stephanie' in Saturday Night Fever (1977) and 'Princess Leia' in Star Wars (1977).
1979Listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1979" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 31. 
1980In addition to being the first-ever "winner" of the Worst Supporting Actress Razzie (for her performance opposite Willie Nelson in Honeysuckle Rose (1980)), Irving has the distinction of being one of two (the other is James Coco) actors (as of 2005) to be nominated for both an Oscar and a Razzie Award for the same performance. As Barbra Streisand's "wife" in Yentl (1983), Irving got nods as 1983's Best and Worst Supporting Actress. She did not win either Award.
1981Replaced Jane Seymour in the role of Constanze Webber on the Broadway hit Amadeus from 1981 to the shows end in 1983.
1981Was originally going to play Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), but split from her director boyfriend at the time Steven Spielberg who was responsible for the film. The two later got together again in around 1984.
1985Has two sons, Max Spielberg, with Steven Spielberg, (b. June 13, 1985) and Gabriel Barretto (b. May 4, 1990).
1987Desperately wanted to play the role of Lydia Maxwell in Innerspace (1987), which Steven Spielberg (her husband at the time) was working on as executive producer, but she lost the part to Meg Ryan.
1988As a favor for Robert Zemeckis she sung 'Why Don't You Do Right?' for sultry heroine Jessica Rabbit in the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). Kathleen Turner supplied the character's speaking voice. Amy Irving did not receive a pay check.
1989Her prenuptial agreement with filmmaker Steven Spielberg netted her an estimated cool $100m when the couple split in 1989.
1990Played wife to Brazilian director Bruno Barreto since 1990 and has a son by him. They eventually married in 1996.
1996Played daughter to real-life mother Priscilla Pointer in 3 movies: Carried Away (1996), Carrie (1976) and Honeysuckle Rose (1980).
