Actress Alicia Witt has appeared in the 1984 version of “Dune” as well as the TV show “Twin Peaks.” However, she said that a chance encounter with a black cat changed her life forever.

While in London on a patio, someone threw a black cat out of a window that landed on her face, cutting her. That made Alicia realize that her beauty was more than just her appearance and that’s when she realized she had more to offer than her looks. Despite the trauma of being cut up by a cat, she now credits that cat with helping her develop a positive self-image of her body.
