She was working as a model when director Sydney Pollack spotted her, and cast her in Tootsie (1982) as a soap opera actress. She followed this up with roles in the short-lived television series Buffalo Bill (1983-1984)) and Sara (1985). She received an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Accidental Tourist (1988) and a Best Actress nomination for her role in Thelma and Louise (1991).

Davis has been married four times, including her current marriage. Her ex-husbands include Jeff Goldblum (with whom she co-starred in three films, including The Fly and Earth Girls Are Easy) from 1987-90, and Renny Harlin (who directed her in Cutthroat Island) from 1993-98. She is currently married to Dr. Reza Jarrahy since September 1, 2001, with whom she has one daughter, Alizeh (born April 10, 2002). She had a Caesarean section on May 9, 2004 to deliver her twins, Kian William Jarrahy and Kaiis Steven Jarrahy.

Davis guest-starred in early 2004 as Grace Adler's sister Janet on the NBC sitcom Will & Grace. In 2005, Davis will star in the ABC television series, Commander-in-Chief as the President of the United States, who ascends to the office after the sitting President dies.
