Background and Education

When it comes to Turner’s ethnicity, she is Caucasian and dyes her hair blonde, which suits her complexion and her blue eyes well. The actress had a slim figure when she was young, but she has also aged gracefully. She was raised in a Christian family, and her passion for acting was discouraged by her parents – her father wouldn’t even come to see her performances when she was young. Turner was a student of The American School in London, and matriculated in 1972, the same year her father died. Aged 19, the actress began working as a volunteer for the Planned Parenthood office, and went on to study at the Missouri State University in Springfield, but relocated to the University of Maryland, located in Baltimore County.

Books and Her Story

In addition to being an actress, Kathleen has written several books such as “Send Yourself Roses: Thoughts on My Life, Love, and Leading Roles” in 2008, and after that went on to publish “Catharsis” and “Hooray for Hollywood” in 2013 and 2018 respectively. Her latest book is entitled “Kathleen Turner on Acting: Conversations about Film, Television, and Theater”, also released in 2018. In those books, the actress gives the audience a closer look at her life story.

Kathleen made her debut in 1979, portraying Nola Aldrich in an episode of “The Doctors”, a then-famous television series, and then continued working at a rapid pace, joining the casts of “Body Heat” and “Man With Two Brains”, in the former opposite by William Hurt, with the movie being nominated for a Golden Globe award, in addition to receiving a generally positive response from the audience. In 1984, Turner portrayed Joan Wilder in “Romancing the Stone”, a critically appraised movie which follows the story of a woman who travels to Columbia to ransom her kidnapped sister, and finds herself in an adventure hunting for treasure. The movie, in which Kathleen was opposite Michael Douglas, was nominated for an Oscar. In the same year, the actress appeared in “Crimes of Passion”, and in the following year starred in “Prizzi’s Honor”, a comedy crime movie which won an Oscar in addition to being rewarded with Golden Globes in several categories, including Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, which Turner won herself.

Latter Career

Having established herself in the acting world, Turner starred in “Peggy Sue Got Married”, opposite Nicolas Cage and Barry Miller, and in 1987 starred in “Julia and Julia”, which drew a mediocre response. In 1990, she starred in the three-times Golden Globe-nominated “The War of the Roses”, and in the same year provided voice recordings for Jessica Rabbit in “Roller Coaster Rabbit”. In 1993 she played the main character in “House of Cards”, working with actors such as Tommy Lee Jones, Asha Menina and Shiloh Strong. When it comes to her career in the early 2000s, she appeared in “Friends”, a worldwide beloved comedy TV series as Charles Bing / Helena Handbasket, and in 2006, had a supporting role in “Law & Order”. She provided voice recordings for the character Constance in “Monster House” in the same year, and later joined the cast of “Californication”, an acclaimed comedy drama series starring David Duchovny. In 2013, she portrayed Head Nurse in “Nurse 3D”, working with Paz de la Huerta and Katrina Bowden. As of her most recent project, Kathleen played Barbara Haines in “Another Kind of Wedding” in 2017.


In late 1980s, the actress was considered to be difficult to work with, and was called “a certifiable diva” by “The New York Times”. The actress eventually admitted that her behavior at that time was unacceptable, stating that she developed into “not a very kind person”. Kathleen is also known for calling out Hollywood for the noticeable difference in quality between male and female roles as the actors age. Kathleen has had problems with alcohol, and admitted that people closest to her suffered because of it. “It’s when I’m home alone that I can’t control my drinking…I was going toward excess. I mean, really! I think I was losing my control over it. So it pulled me back”, the actress said.

Body Heat (1981)$30,000


1We have no National Theater support in this country. However, we have some wonderful regional theaters. Face it, in New York on Broadway we don't really create much work or new talent, it comes into Broadway after it's been elsewhere. The regional theaters are what we need, so every year (or two years at most), I work at a regional theater. It makes a difference.
2I sign more Jessica Rabbit photos than mine, almost. I'm not kidding. Isn't that crazy?
3No, I don't look like I did 30 years ago. Get over it.
4Being a sex symbol has to do with an attitude, not looks. Sexuality is not just looks; it's a sense you have of yourself. I think most men think it's all looks; most women know otherwise.
5[on Steve Martin] Steve just wasn't somebody you want to grab a beer with after work. I don't know why he's so contained, but when the camera's rolling, he's a genius.
6[on Lawrence Kasdan] I find his sense of humor is rather low, but he thinks I'm stuffy.
7[on Francis Ford Coppola] I'm really about the only lead woman he's worked with. He's shy, but we worked out well. I said, 'You give me a martini at the end of the day and everything will be fine.
8[on the Oscars] They just don't vote for comedies, do they? I think I need a good crying scene.
9[on Jack Nicholson] There's this thing when you're the new girl in town in L.A., right? And they all have to take you out for dinner and make sure they get a shot at you. I'm an old-fashioned Midwestern girl, so this doesn't work well for me. Once we got that straight we were friends.
10[on Robert Zemeckis] I remember terrible arguments doing Romancing. He's a film-school grad, fascinated by cameras and effects. I never felt that he knew what I was having to do to adjust my acting to some of his damn cameras - sometimes he puts you in ridiculous postures. I'd say, 'This is not helping me! This is not the way I like to work, thank you!
11[on Danny DeVito] He provides a sickness, the tastelessness, that dark underside. It's like being groped all day long - being somewhat short, he gets to casually drape his arm around parts of your anatomy that no one usually would.
12[on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences] I would encourage more young people to join, because the average age now is over 60. Not to sound sour grapes, but I think there is a lot of politics involved. They like a classic with the hottest young actors who can barely speak English. Oooh, didn't I sound like an old lady then?
13[on Hollywood (1995)] We need women producers, writers and executives. Otherwise, it is like expecting male senators to write legislation for us. Hollywood in general is at least 10 to 15 years behind the times. We just last year made a big fuss over Tom Hanks playing gay.
14[on the differences between the West End and Broadway] On Broadway, the star gets an automatic standing ovation. In the West End, they don't. I swear this is true, or if it isn't, Dustin Hoffman won't kill me. But he was here (in the West End) in "The Merchant of Venice" when Laurence Olivier passed away, and at the end he said: "It is my sad duty to inform you that Lord Olivier has died." And the audience rose to their feet. And as Dustin was going off, he muttered: "You have to die, you have to fucking die.".
15[on her looks] You know, I was so naive. Still am. When I arrived in L.A., Michael Douglas, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, they would all call me up. And I thought: how nice, they are looking after me. It was only later I found out it was a competition to see who could get the new girl.
16[on Rheumatoid arthritis] The day I was told, I went from the hospital to kindergarten for a meeting with my daughter's teacher and looked at these little chairs and started crying because I knew there was no way I would be able to get into that chair.
17[on her divorce] I don't think there is a simple explanation. I don't think there ever is. I think we became too difficult for each other because our lives were going different ways. He wanted to be part of the public world less and less. He was tired of the publicity, and the travel, and being, as he would call it, "Mr. Turner".
18I do not have a great deal of belief in the so-called method. Yes, you run into actors who have to have their quiet time, you must not speak to them as they're preparing or they want to be called by their character's name not their own since that jars them out of their reality. And you go, "Okay fine, whatever you need. Just stay out of my way.".
19[on what is the most important lesson life has taught her] That you are not the center of the world.
20[on what was her most embarrassing moment] When I met Gregory Peck and he said, "You have a lovely voice." And I replied, "Oh, so do you, sir!" What an idiot. It was my first Oscars, so I was very young.
21The studios are no longer creative institutions. Their job is to raise a great deal of money for their shareholders, to hedge their bets about risk. All this does not spell creativity. You might as well be talking real estate. Thank goodness for the independents. Except that distribution is still controlled by the studios. So they take the first week's profit and, after that, they don't give a damn. They take their money and they leave. It sucks.
22I'm not a naturalistic actor. I believe acting is a planned process of communication. I don't see anything naturalistic about it.
23I find the idea of today's icons being teenagers incredibly uninspiring. I think the Europeans have enough tradition and respect for the experience and body of work of an actress that they don't sell out to the new ones.
24Then when I was about 40, the roles started slowing down. I started getting offers to play mothers and grandmothers. I'd say the cut-off point for leading ladies today is 35/40, whereas half the men in Hollywood get their start then. It's a terrible double standard.
25It's always been my first love, I never feel more alive than when I'm on stage. On film you feel chopped up, you can be acting from the neck up, or the hand, there is a lot of close up.
26I often play women who are not essentially good or likable, and I often go through a stage where I hate them. And then I find the reasons why they are that way, and end up loving and defending them.
27When I was 20, I had so many more insecurities and looked for approbation from everyone. But by the time I was 40 and now at 50, you wake up and think, "Fuck you, I don't have to prove myself anymore", and that makes you sexy.
28I learned years ago, I adore acting and I think it's the most alive I know how to be -- almost -- but I really want a good life. I've been married for 17 years -- I know, they call us the last couple. I have a 13-year-old daughter. I have a lovely home life with good friends who aren't in the business... and I have no desire to cost my whole life in pursuit of the career alone.
29I know there are nights when I have that power, when I could put on something and walk in somewhere, and if there's a man there who doesn't look at me, it's because he's gay.
30I feel I get recognized for my voice more than for my face.
31A woman my age is not supposed to be attractive or sexually appealing. I just get kinda tired of that.

11In the early 1990s, as Rheumatoid Arthritis began impacting her acting career and her personal life in a significant way, she also began to see a decline in the number of acting roles she was being offered. When the diagnosis was finally made in 1992, she had already been suffering with "unbearable" pain for over one year. By that time, she could not easily turn her head, and was already having difficulty walking, and her doctors told her that she was most likely going to be needing a wheelchair to remain mobile. By the mid to late 1990s, the progression of the illness and the medications (steroids, among others) to treat the illness quickly began to change her appearance. All of this caused her once vibrant acting career to slow considerably. Due to newly available drugs and other treatments, her Rheumatoid Arthritis has been in remission since 2006.
12By her own admission, she turned down every role offered of a victimized, weak woman.
