Anne Bancroft (Gloria Vogal)
Anne Bancroft headed into Heartbreakers at the tail end of an illustrious career that featured roles on stage and screen, most notably playing Mrs. Robinson in the 1967 film The Graduate. Bancroft joined Heartbreakers' Oscar-validated cast (Sigourney Weaver had three nominations upon starring, while Gene Hackman had already won two before signing on) after winning her first Academy Award for 1962's The Miracle Worker. Heartbreakers was Bancroft's final live-action role in a theatrical motion picture, as the actress died of cancer in 2005. Prior to her death, she lent her voice to the animated film Delgo, which also features the voice of her Heartbreakers costar, Jennifer Love Hewitt. Delgo was released in 2008, three years after Bancroft's death.
