Lake has recently completed work on a memoir for Simon & Schuster’s Atria imprint, due on shelves in the spring of 2012. In addition, she executive produced the critically acclaimed documentary THE BUSINESS OF BEING BORN, which debuted at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival and examined natural childbirth in the United States. That project has generated a grassroots movement and led to the publication of her first book, YOUR BEST BIRTH. On November 8, 2011, Lake and her filmmaking partner, Abby Epstein, will release a four-part, follow-up DVD series, MORE BUSINESS OF BEING BORN, offering invaluable information and featuring birth stories from some of Hollywood’s most notable celebrities.
Lake starred in John Waters’ CRY-BABY opposite Johnny Depp and SERIAL MOM alongside Kathleen Turner. Other notable appearances include the contemporary classic WORKING GIRL, the acclaimed drama LAST EXIT TO BROOKLYN, the romantic comedy MRS. WINTERBOURNE opposite Shirley MacLaine and Brendan Fraser and WHERE THE DAY TAKES YOU opposite Dermot Mulroney. She also starred in the CBS film BABYCAKES and the popular television series CHINA BEACH and THE KING OF QUEENS.
