Alisan Porter is best known for playing the title role in the 1991 film "Curly Sue."
Bill Dancer (Belushi) and his young companion Curly Sue (Porter) are the archetypal homeless folks with hearts of gold. Their scams are aimed not at turning a profit, but at getting enough to eat. After moving from Detroit to Chicago, the duo tricks the rich and beautiful divorced lawyer Grey Ellison into believing she backed her car into Bill, and also in hopes of a free meal. But after Grey accidentally hits Bill for real, she insists on putting the two up for the night, even over the objections of her snotty fiance. After a confrontation with Bill exposing the truth of the con, Grey lets them stay for as long as they need to when she understands the precarious position the homeless pair are in. As they get to know each other, Bill becomes convinced that this is where Curly Sue belongs - in a home, cared for by someone that can give her the advantages that his homeless, nomadic existence lacks. He strives to give her the life she deserves, altering his own life to meet those standards.
The 29-year-old resurfaced at some event, looking flat-ironed.
