Early life and education

Joyce grew up being interested in acting and modelling, and while attending a local high school she was a member of the drama club, appearing in nearly all the plays before matriculating in 1975. She also worked on her singing skills, and tried to learn to play the piano, but after finding out she had no talent, she focused on listening to music rather than creating it.

Joyce worked several jobs to financially support herself, before she made her debut film appearance portraying Brenda Weintraub in the teen comedy film “The Hollywood Knights” in 1980, followed by her roles in “They All Laughed” in 1981, and “Valley Girl” in 1983.

Love life and relationships

Joyce met Bruce Springsteen at a party while he was on his tour around the USA in 1978 – Bruce asked their mutual friend Gary Busey to introduce them, and Joyce ended up spending the rest of Bruce’s tour with him. It is widely believed that the two broke-up as soon as the tour was finished, but kept in touch and occasionally saw one another for several years after.

A year after her and Bruce’s fling ended, she met Warren Beatty, an American actor and producer, when she appeared in one of his movies. Warren wasn’t loyal to his girlfriends in the past, and Joan Collins, the actress he dated before meeting Joyce, had an abortion after he impregnated her, and left him because he was unfaithful.

Warren and Joyce dated for a year before splitting ways and in 1992, he married Anette Bening – they have four children together.

Joyce is currently single, hasn’t married, and has no children.

Hobbies and other interests

Joyce has always been interested in music, and her taste changed as the years went by.

She grew up listening to her later boyfriend Bruce as well as bands Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, while she later began listening to Queen, Deep Purple, and Guns ‘n’ Roses. She is a fan of jazz and blues music today, and some of her favorite performers are Frank and Nancy Sinatra, and Joe Cocker. Her main hobby is travelling, and she has visited nearly all of the US states, and has been to Europe and Asia on multiple occasions, mostly for work but also for pleasure – her dream travel destination is Paris in France.

Joyce has her own favorite actresses and actors, some of whom are Julianne Moore, Cate Blanchett and Johnny Depp, while her favorite movies include “Hannibal”, “Still Alice”, and the franchise “The Pirates of the Caribbean”. She is a lover of animals and has two pet dogs.
