DUIs -- Not Just For Stars in Their 20s Anymore!

(AP) Rebecca De Mornay has been charged with misdemeanor drunken driving following her arrest two months ago.

The "Risky Business" actress was charged with one count of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and one count of driving with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit of .08, a Los Angeles District Attorney's spokeswoman said Thursday.

De Mornay was arrested Oct. 30 for a traffic violation in Beverly Hills when officers smelled alcohol on her breath. She is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

Calls to her representatives weren't immediately returned.

De Mornay is best known for playing the prostitute who befriends Tom Cruise's high school student in the 1983 film "Risky Business." Her other screen credits include "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle," "Backdraft" and "Lords of Dogtown."

She recently appeared in the HBO drama "John From Cincinnati."
