The daughter of actress Tippi Hedren and former stage actor Peter Griffith, she rose to prominence for her role in Brian De Palma's Body Double (1984), which earned her a National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actress. Griffith's subsequent performance in Something Wild (1986) garnered critical acclaim before she was cast in 1988's Working Girl, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress and won a Golden Globe.
The 1990s saw Griffith in a series of roles which received varying critical reception: she received Golden Globe nominations for her performances in Buffalo Girls (1995), and as Marion Davies in RKO 281 (1999), while also earning a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress for her performances in Shining Through (1992), as well as receiving nominations for Crazy in Alabama (1999) and John Waters' cult film Cecil B. Demented (2000). Other roles include in Milk Money (1994), the neo-noir film Mulholland Falls (1996), and as Charlotte Haze in Adrian Lyne's Lolita (1997).
She later starred as Barbara Marx in The Night We Called It a Day (2003), and has appeared on the television series Nip/Tuck, Raising Hope, and Hawaii Five-0. After acting on stage in London, in 2001 she made her Broadway debut in a revival of the musical Chicago, receiving celebratory reviews that made it a box office success.
At age 14, Griffith began dating Don Johnson, her mother's 22-year-old co-star in The Harrad Experiment. The relationship culminated in a six-month marriage from January to July 1976 before they divorced. In May 1982, Griffith married Steven Bauer, her co-star from the TV film She's in the Army Now. They have a son, Alexander Bauer, born on August 22, 1985. The couple divorced in 1987. Griffith later admitted to having problems with cocaine and liquor after her divorce from Bauer. "What I did was drink myself to sleep at night," she said. "If I wasn't with someone, I was an unhappy girl."
In 1988, after completing rehabilitation Griffith renewed her relationship with Johnson. They remarried in June 1989. Their daughter, Dakota Johnson, was born on October 4, 1989. They separated in March 1994, reconciled later that year, but separated again
in May 1995.
Griffith had fallen in love with Antonio Banderas, her married co-star from Two Much. After their respective divorces were finalized, Griffith and Banderas married on May 14, 1996. They have a daughter, Stella del Carmen Banderas, born on September 24, 1996.
In 2000, Griffith returned to rehab for treatment of a painkiller addiction. Her father, Peter Griffith, died at age 67 on May 14, 2001. In August 2009, Griffith returned to rehab again for what her publicist called "part of a routine plan." She had a three-month stay. In December of that year, she had surgery for skin cancer.
In June 2014, Griffith and Banderas released a statement announcing their intention to divorce "in a loving and friendly manner". According to the petition filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, the couple had "irreconcilable differences" that led to the divorce.
Griffith is a registered member of the Democratic Party.
