Early life[edit] Turner was born June 19, 1954, in Springfield, Missouri, the daughter of Patsy (née Magee 1923-2015)[4] and Allen Richard Turner, a U.S. Foreign Service officer[5] who grew up in China
China
(where Turner's great-grandfather had been a Methodist
Methodist
missionary). She has a sister, Susan, and two brothers.[6][7][8] Turner was raised in a strict conservative Christian
Christian
household, and her interest in performing was discouraged by both of her parents: "My father was of missionary stock," she later explained, "so theater and acting were just one step up from being a streetwalker, you know? So when I was performing in school, he would drive my mom [there] and sit in the car. She'd come out at intermissions and tell him, 'She's doing very well.'"[7][9] Owing to her father's employment in the Foreign Service, Turner grew up abroad and graduated from the American School in London in 1972.[6] Her father died of a coronary thrombosis that same year, and then the family moved back to the United States. At age 19, Turner began volunteering at a local Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood
office.[2] She attended Southwest Missouri State University
Missouri State University
in Springfield for two years, then studied theater at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1977.[10] During that period, Turner acted in several productions directed by the film and stage director Steve Yeager.[11][12] Career[edit] Body Heat[edit] In 1977, Turner made her television debut in the NBC
NBC
daytime soap The Doctors as the second Nola Dancy Aldrich. She made her film debut in 1981 as the ruthless Matty Walker in the thriller Body Heat; the role brought her to international prominence. Empire Magazine cited the film in 1995 when it named her one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in Film History.[13] The New York Times
The New York Times
wrote in 2005 that, propelled by her "jaw-dropping movie debut [in] Body Heat... she built a career on adventurousness and frank sexuality born of robust physicality."[9] Turner ultimately became one of the top box office draws, and most sought-after actresses of the 1980s and early 1990s. The brazen quality of Turner's screen roles was reflected in her public life. With her deep voice, Turner was often compared to a young Lauren Bacall. When the two met, Turner reportedly introduced herself by saying, "Hi, I'm the young you."[14] In the 1980s, she boasted that "on a night when I feel really good about myself, I can walk into a room, and if a man doesn't look at me, he's probably gay."[13] Theatre work and Broadway debut[edit] Several months after moving to New York City in 1977, Turner took over the female lead in Michael Zetter's play Mister T, which co-starred Jonathan Frakes
Jonathan Frakes
and played at Soho Repertory Theatre. That production marked her off-Broadway debut. Several months later, Turner made her Broadway debut as Judith Hastings in Gemini by Albert Innaurato, staged at The Little Theatre (now known as the Helen Hayes Theater) and starring Danny Aiello. It opened May 21, 1977, during the time when she was appearing in the soap The Doctors.[15] Stardom during the 1980s[edit] After Body Heat, Turner steered away from femme fatale roles to "prevent typecasting" and "because femme fatale roles had a shelf-life." Consequently, her first project after this was the 1983 comedy The Man With Two Brains. Turner co-starred in Romancing the Stone with Michael Douglas
Michael Douglas
and Danny DeVito. The film critic Pauline Kael wrote of her performance as writer Joan Wilder, "Turner knows how to use her dimples amusingly and how to dance like a woman who didn’t know she could; her star performance is exhilarating."[16] Romancing the Stone
Romancing the Stone
was a surprise hit: she won a Golden Globe
Golden Globe
for her role in the film, and it became one of the top-ten-grossing movies of 1984.[17] Turner teamed with Douglas and DeVito again the following year for its sequel, The Jewel of the Nile. Several months before Jewel, Turner starred in Prizzi's Honor
Prizzi's Honor
with Jack Nicholson, winning a second Golden Globe
Golden Globe
award, and later starred in Peggy Sue Got Married, which co-starred Nicolas Cage. For Peggy Sue, she received the award for Best Actress
Actress
from the U.S. National Board of Review of Motion Pictures.[18] as well as an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. In 1988's toon-noir Who Framed Roger Rabbit, she was the speaking voice of cartoon femme fatale Jessica Rabbit, intoning the famous line, "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way." Her uncredited, sultry performance was acclaimed as "the kind of sexpot ball-breaker she was made for."[19] ( Amy Irving
Amy Irving
provided Jessica Rabbit's singing voice in the scene in which the character first appears in the movie.) That same year Turner also appeared in Switching Channels, which was a loose remake of the 1940 hit film His Girl Friday; this, in turn, was a loose remake of the Ben Hecht- Charles MacArthur comedy The Front Page. Turner appeared in the 1986 song "The Kiss of Kathleen Turner" by Austrian techno-pop singer Falco. In 1989, Turner teamed with Douglas and DeVito for a third time, in The War of the Roses, but this time as Douglas's disillusioned wife, with DeVito in the role of a divorce attorney who told their shared story. The New York Times
The New York Times
praised the trio, saying that "Mr. Douglas and Ms. Turner have never been more comfortable a team ... each of them is at his or her comic best when being as awful as both are required to be here ... [Kathleen Turner is] evilly enchanting."[20] In that film, Turner played a former gymnast and, as in other roles, did many of her own stunts. (She broke her nose two years afterward filming 1991's V.I. Warshawski.)[21][22] 1990s – slowed by disease[edit] Turner remained an A-list film star leading lady until the early 1990s, when rheumatoid arthritis seriously restricted her activities and her movie career went into rapid decline. She turned down lead roles in Ghost and The Bridges of Madison County, both of which became big hits. The arthritis diagnosis was made in 1992 after Turner had suffered "unbearable" pain for about a year. By the time she was diagnosed she "could hardly turn her head or walk, and was told she would end up in a wheelchair."[9] As the disease worsened and the medication greatly altered Turner's looks, along with excess alcohol consumption that Turner said she used to kill her physical pain, her career as a leading lady went into a steep decline and Turner was seen in fewer and fewer very successful films – though Turner also blamed her age, stating, "when I was forty the roles started slowing down, I started getting offers to play mothers and grandmothers ..." She appeared in the low-budget House of Cards, experienced moderate success with John Waters's black comedy Serial Mom, and had supporting roles in A Simple Wish, The Real Blonde, and Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides. She also provided the voice of Malibu Stacy's creator, Stacy Lovell, in the episode "Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy" on The Simpsons. 2000s – remission[edit] Despite drug therapy to help her condition, the disease progressed for about eight years. Then, thanks to newly available treatments, her arthritis went into remission. She was seen increasingly on television, including three episodes of Friends, where she appeared as Chandler Bing's estranged, gay father, who works as a drag queen in Las Vegas. In 2006, Turner guest starred on FX's Nip/Tuck, playing a phone sex operator in need of laryngeal surgery. She appeared in a small role in 2008's Marley & Me and also played a defense attorney on Law & Order. In 2009, she played the role of Charlie Runkle's sexually hyperactive boss in season 3 of the television series Californication. Voice actress[edit] In the same year as her Nip/Tuck
Nip/Tuck
cameo role, 2006, Turner provided the voice of Constance in the animated film Monster House. More recently,[when?] she provided radio commercial voice-overs for Lay's potato chips. BBC Radio 4
BBC Radio 4
produced three radio dramas based on the V.I. Warshawski
V.I. Warshawski
novels by Sara Paretsky. The first two, Deadlock
Deadlock
and Killing Orders, featured Turner reprising her 1991 movie role, which had been based on Paretsky's novel Deadlock; however, the third, Bitter Medicine, saw Sharon Gless
Sharon Gless
take over the part. Turner also provided the voice of Jessica Rabbit
Jessica Rabbit
in the 1988 live action/animated film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and again in the Disneyland
Disneyland
attraction spinoff, Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin. Stage career[edit] After 1990s roles in Broadway productions of Indiscretions and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (for which she earned a Tony Award
Tony Award
nomination for Best Actress), Turner moved to London in 2000 to star in a stage version of The Graduate. The BBC reported that initially mediocre ticket sales for The Graduate "went through the roof when it was announced that Turner, then aged 45, would appear naked on stage." While her performance as the infamous Mrs. Robinson was popular with audiences, with sustained high box office for the duration of Turner's run, she received mixed reviews from critics.[23] The play transferred to Broadway in 2002 to similar critical reaction. In 2005, Turner beat a score of other contenders (including Jessica Lange, Frances McDormand, and Bette Midler)[9] for the role of Martha in a 2005 Broadway revival of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Albee later explained to the New York Times that when Turner read for the part with her eventual co-star Bill Irwin, he heard "an echo of the 'revelation' that he had felt years ago when the parts were read by [Uta] Hagen and Arthur Hill." He added that Turner had "a look of voluptuousness, a woman of appetites, yes ... but a look of having suffered as well."[citation needed] Ben Brantley praised Turner at length, writing:

“ As the man-eating Martha, Ms. Turner, a movie star whose previous theater work has been variable, finally secures her berth as a first-rate, depth-probing stage actress ... [A]t 50, this actress can look ravishing and ravaged, by turns. In the second act, she is as predatorily sexy as she was in the movie Body Heat. But in the third and last act she looks old, bereft, stripped of all erotic flourish. I didn't think I would ever be able to see Virginia Woolf again without thinking of Ms. Hagen [Uta Hagen]. But watching Ms. Turner in that last act, fully clothed but more naked than she ever was in The Graduate, I didn't see the specter of Ms. Hagen. All I saw was Ms. Turner. No, let's be fair. All I saw was Martha.[24] ”

As Martha, Turner received her second Tony Award
Tony Award
nomination for Best Actress
Actress
in a Play, losing to Cherry Jones. The production was transferred to London's Apollo Theatre
Apollo Theatre
in 2006. She starred in Sandra Ryan Heyward's one-woman show, Tallulah, which she toured across the U.S. In August 2010, Turner portrayed the role of Sister Jamison Connelly in Matthew Lombardo’s drama High at Hartford TheaterWorks.[25] The production transferred to Broadway, at the Booth Theater, where it opened in previews on March 25, 2011, officially on April 19, 2011, and an announced quick closing on April 24, 2011.[26] However, in a rare move, the production was revived, still headed by Turner, to undertake a national tour, which began in Boston in December 2012.[27] From August to October 28, 2012, Turner appeared in Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins, a play about the legendary liberal Texas columnist, Molly Ivins, at the Arena Stage, in Washington, D.C.[28] In December 2014 and January 2015, Turner performed the same show at Berkeley Repertory Theatre.[29] She appeared again at the Arena Stage
Arena Stage
in the title role of Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage
Mother Courage
which opened in February 2014,[30] and playing Joan Didion
Joan Didion
in the one-woman show The Year of Magical Thinking, based on Didion's memoir of the same name, in October and November 2016.[31] Personal life[edit] Turner married the real estate entrepreneur Jay Weiss of New York City in 1984, and they had one child, their daughter, Rachel Ann Weiss, who was born on October 14, 1987. Turner had been born into a Methodist family, but she has said that she has "taken on a certain amount of Jewish
Jewish
tradition and identity" since marrying her Jewish
Jewish
husband and raising their daughter in Judaism.[8] In 2006, Turner announced that she and Weiss were planning a trial separation.[13] Turner and Weiss carried this forward to a divorce that became official in December 2007, but Turner has said, "[Jay]'s still my best friend."[32] By the late 1980s, Turner had acquired a reputation for being difficult: what The New York Times
The New York Times
called "a certifiable diva." She admitted that she had developed into "not a very kind person," and the actress Eileen Atkins referred to her as "an amazing nightmare."[9] Turner slammed Hollywood over the difference in the quality of roles offered to male actors and female actors as they age, calling the disparity a "terrible double standard." In 1990, Turner received unfavorable publicity when a deliberately lit fire at the Happy Land Social Club, located in a building managed by her husband, claimed 87 lives. The club was operating without a license and the building had been cited for numerous fire safety violations,[33] but The New Yorker
The New Yorker
quoted Turner saying, "the fire was unfortunate, but could have happened at a McDonald's."[34] As a result of her altered looks and weight gain from her rheumatoid arthritis treatment, The New York Times
The New York Times
published this statement in 2005, "Rumors began circulating that she was drinking too much. She later said in interviews that she didn't bother correcting the rumors because people in show business hire drunks all the time, but not people who are sick." Turner has had well-publicized problems with alcohol, which she used as an escape from the pain and symptoms of acute rheumatoid arthritis. Turner has admitted that because of her illness, she was in constant unbearable agony and that as a result, the people she was closest to would suffer from it, as she was constantly drinking to relieve the pain and it made her a very difficult person.[35] A few weeks after leaving the production of the play The Graduate in November 2002, Turner was admitted into the Marworth hospital in Waverly, Pennsylvania, for the treatment of alcoholism. "I have no problem with alcohol when I'm working," she explained. "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."[9] Activism[edit] Turner has worked with Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood
of America since age 19, and later became a chairperson. She also serves on the board of People for the American Way, and volunteers at Amnesty International
Amnesty International
and Citymeals-on-Wheels. She was one of John Kerry's first celebrity endorsers. She has been a frequent donor to the Democratic Party. She has also worked to raise awareness of rheumatoid arthritis.[36] Memoirs and interviews[edit] In the mid-2000s, Turner collaborated with Gloria Feldt
Gloria Feldt
on the writing of her memoirs, Send Yourself Roses: Thoughts on My Life, Love, and Leading Roles. The book was published in 2008.[37] In the book, Turner claimed that Nicolas Cage
Nicolas Cage
had gotten drunk, and stole a chihuahua that he liked.[38] In turn, Cage filed a lawsuit against Turner and her book publisher in the UK who took an excerpt from the book and posted it on their website (pre-publication).[38] Cage argued defamation and damage to character and won the case, resulting in retractions, legal fees, and a donation to charity.[38] Turner later publicly apologized.[39] During an interview on The View, Turner apologized for any distress she might have caused Cage regarding an incident that took place 20 years earlier.[40][41] Filmography[edit] Film[edit]
