Maggie Renzi (born 1951) is an American film producer and actress. Renzi started acting as a child in the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Williamstown, Massachusetts and continued into her 20s there and in college productions. She graduated from Williams College in 1973 where she met John Sayles. She has been John Sayles' long time companion (and collaborator) though they haven't married. They released their first film Return of the Secaucus 7 in 1979 with Renzi starring as Katie Sipriano and working as unit manager, assistant editor and actually functioning as producer. The film won the Best Screenplay award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and became a hit with the college and art film crowd. She produced their second film Lianna in 1983 and also played a small role as Sheila. She focused more on producing their subsequent films while still acting in some in small roles. She co-produced the 2000 film Girlfight with Karyn Kusama, a veteran of Sayles/Renzi productions, screenwriting and directing. She also produced Bruce Springsteen's music videos "Born in the U.S.A.", "I'm on Fire" and "Glory Days" that John Sayles directed.
