Before They Were Stars: Jennifer Jason Leigh Gets Pregnant on “CBS Afternoon Playhouse”

Jennifer Jason Leigh’s breakthrough role was in Fast Times on Ridgemont High, where she played an inexperienced teenage girl who is impregnated by a douchebag. A year beforehand, Leigh covered similar ground by playing another teenage girl who becomes unexpectedly pregnant in an episode of CBS Afternoon Playhouse entitled “I Think I’m Having a Baby”. This episode is actually a “Before They Were Stars” bonanza as Helen Hunt, Ally Sheedy and a pre-Growing Pains Tracey Gold also make early acting appearances.
