In early 1985, John Waters announced that he was working on a script for a new film entitled Hatchet-Face, which was "about a woman and her multilevel beauty problems". Although this film was never realized, a similar character of the same name was subsequently incorporated into the project that became Cry-Baby. It has been posited that Malnorowski, a grotesque, loud-mouthed member of the teenage delinquent gang headed by Johnny Depp's Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker, had originally been conceived by John Waters with Divine in mind. The overweight female impersonator, who had been a distinctive presence in Waters' films for almost two decades, died suddenly in March 1988, before production of Cry-Baby began.
When Waters came to cast the role of Hatchetface in March 1989, the character was described thus: "She's got the body of Jayne Mansfield and the face of Margaret Hamilton... [and] nobody, but nobody, gives her grief." To find a suitable actress, Waters placed a print advertisement that simply requested: "Wanted: Girl with a good body and an alarming face who is proud of it". Prospective candidates were invited to send a recent photograph to "Cry-Baby Productions, 222 St. Paul Pl., Baltimore, MD, 21201."
After principal production of Cry-Baby was completed in July 1989, a series of test screenings was held during which McGuire's performance as Hatchetface was so well-received that Waters decided to insert some additional sequences involving the character. An additional fortnight of shooting took place in November, after which two new Hatchetface scenes found their way into the final cut.
In February 1990, when Cry-Baby was first screened for its cast and crew, McGuire was already working on her next film, Charles Winkler's horror flick Disturbed, starring Malcolm McDowell as a psychotic doctor. Soon afterwards, and without even having yet acquired an agent, McGuire signed to appear opposite James Caan in Rob Reiner's film adaptation of Stephen King's novel, Misery. However, her lead role as the psychopathic nurse Annie Wilkes was subsequently taken by Kathy Bates, who went on to win the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance.
By the mid-1990s, McGuire had all but given up on her film career. In December 1997, she was admitted to the California State Bar and began working as an attorney in Los Angeles, specialising in entertainment and appellate law. She and her partner, Emmy-winning television producer Gene Piotrowsky, were in New York at the time of the September 11 attacks and consequently found themselves unemployed. The couple moved to Biloxi, Mississippi, where, a few years earlier, McGuire's parents (still living in New Orleans) had purchased a seaside vacation house in the exclusive Holy Land district.
While McGuire thereafter concentrated on her career as an attorney, both she and her partner maintained an interest in the performing arts. In September 2002, they became members of a local theatre group, the Mississippi Repertory Theatre Company, McGuire in the capacity of legal counsel, and Piotrowsky as director of marketing and advertising.
McGuire, then working on stage in New York City, saw the advertisement and was reportedly hired by Waters "almost immediately" after her audition. In a 2005 documentary about the film, titled It Came From Baltimore, McGuire recalled:
In September 2005, McGuire and Piotrowsky were rendered homeless by Hurricane Katrina; it was reported that "they lost everything except for Gene’s Emmy, which was found broken amidst the rubble that was their home".
By November 2005, McGuire had become temporarily licensed to practice law in Alabama, and subsequently resumed her career as an attorney, specialising in family law. She was admitted to the Alabama State Bar in September 2006, and re-admitted to the California State Bar in April 2010 after a period of professional inactivity in that state.
In July 2005, McGuire's performance as Hatchetface in Cry-Baby was introduced to a new generation of fans when the film was released on DVD as a director's cut. The former actress was one of several original cast members (along with Johnny Depp, Amy Locane, Traci Lords, Ricki Lake, Darren E. Burrows and Stephen Mailer) who reunited for the filming of a short documentary, which was included on the disc as a special feature. Of the reunion, Waters quipped: "we found all the people today, including Hatchetface. I hadn't seen Hatchetface since we made the movie almost 20 years ago. She looked great, she looked like a regular middle-aged woman. But she looked very different to how she does in the movie, so it was kind of startling."
On September 13, 2016, McGuire was admitted to the ICU at Physicians Regional Hospital in Naples, Florida with pneumonia. After failing to respond to treatment, she suffered a cardiac arrest and died the following day.
Currently, Kim McGuire is 65 years, 11 months and 26 days old. Kim McGuire will celebrate 66th birthday on a Wednesday 1st of December 2021.
