Onscreen and off, Karen Allen means business


TORONTO -- Forget your mom's advice to have a Plan B in case being an actor doesn't pay the bills. You might want to try Karen Allen's philosophy. "I didn't want anything to fall back on -- I might fall back," the Raiders of the Lost Ark and Animal House star told WalletPop. "I might lose my courage, my passion, to do something. Everybody comes up against obstacles and rejection and you have to push through it."
