Gerini won the National Competition of Miss Teenager in 1985.

She got her first part in a film, La ballata di Eva, at 14. She subsequently played in Ciao mà, Roba da ricchi and Night Club, by Sergio Corbucci, and many others. At 19 she worked for the popular TV show Non è la Rai, a sort of academy with one hundred girls singing, dancing and gaming.

Her first major role was in Il padre e il figlio, directed by Pasquale Pozzessere. She later moved to Paris to learn French for several months, travelling a lot between Italy and France without leaving off University. At 22 she returned to Italy and got a role as protagonist in Angelo e Beatrice, a theatrical work by Francesco Apolloni (writer and director) presented on the stage at the Theater Coliseum in Rome, where director and actor Carlo Verdone noticed her. The encounter with Verdone produced Viaggi di nozze and Sono pazzo di Iris Blond, both Christmas box-office successes.

Gerini later collaborated with Leonardo Pieraccioni, Massimo Ceccherini, Antonio Rezza and Antonello De Leo, and moved both to Los Angeles, U.S. and Madrid, Spain to improve the respective languages. In Spain she worked for Desafinado by M. G. Pereira and La playa de Los Galagos by M. Camus. Her latest roles include Francesca e Nunziata, directed by Lina Wertmüller, Al cuore si comanda, Non ti muovere, La sconosciuta and the recent Nero bifamiliare, directed by her partner, singer songwriter Federico Zampaglione (Tiromancino).
