Still Hot: Kathleen Turner

Kathleen Turner, the sexy 50-something Golden Globe winning actress, is best known for her gravely voice. She has starred in Peggy Sue Got Married, War of the Roses, Romancing the Stone, and even lent her voice to femme fatale Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Now, the accomplished actress has turned both director and author. Her first New York production, the Pulitzer-prize winning Crimes of the Heart by Beth Henley, opened on Valentine’s Day to rave reviews from the likes of The New York Times. And her sassy memoir, Send Yourself Roses, has just been released to equal praise. In it, she dishes the dirt on her co-stars — like Burt Reynolds, whom she calls “just nasty” — but she really throws the book at herself. She curses like a sailor and used to drink like one too. But she has beaten back the system, fought her way to sobriety, and now is smarter and stronger than she was even as a young, athletic starlet. As Elton John says, the “Bitch is Back” and we here at The Frisky predict she’ll have a bestseller to show for it too! [Amazon]
