Donna Dixon (born July 20, 1957) is an American actress.
Donna Dixon was born in Alexandria, Virginia; her father, Earl Dixon, owned a club on U.S. 1, called "Hillbilly Heaven." She is a 1975 graduate of Groveton High School and attended The George Washington University dropping out briefly after beginning, and never receiving a degree. She began her career as a model and was named Miss Virginia USA in 1976 and Miss Washington DC World in 1977. Dixon co-starred with Tom Hanks in the early 1980s television comedy series Bosom Buddies; however, her pageant-like performances continued to determine her typecast roles.
Months after they worked together in the 1983 film Doctor Detroit, Dixon and actor Dan Aykroyd married. They later starred together in the 1985 film Spies Like Us and the 1988 film The Couch Trip. Dixon and Aykroyd have three daughters.
She has acted in bit parts since making those movies with her husband, including the "Dreamwoman" in the 1992 film Wayne's World. She played a guest role in the television series Moonlighting. She has since retired from filming.
