Virginia Antonelli was born and raised in San Francisco. Her family’s yard had a white picket fence and her childhood was remarkably non-dysfunctional by today’s standards. She is the product of a very supportive family; her parents actually loved each other and neither of her siblings is a jerk. After moving to New York City in 1982, Antonelli, who at last count registers a score of 3.5 on the ambition-o-meter (1 being stoned slacker and 10 Madonna), completed a BFA in Film/TV at New York University. She proceeded to work a series of get-rich-slow jobs, went on to win no awards and has had zero fame or fortune. She’ll take a pass on fame because she has a proliferation of bad hair days. Fortune would be welcome because she tends to date high-maintenance women. She’s also inching toward retirement age and needs new socks.
