Her first starring role in a feature film was the part of Nora in Pump Up the Volume with Christian Slater, whom she was dating at the time. They were also both in Broken Arrow. Mathis began dating River Phoenix when they starred together in The Thing Called Love. She was with him the night that he died outside LA's Viper Room. Like Phoenix, Mathis is also a vegetarian.
