Ms. Turner has rheumatoid arthritis, a crippling and mobility ending disease.  It has only been in recent years that doctors have even been able to slow down its progression.  Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disorder where the immune system attacks its own joints.  My grandmother had it for 30 years before actual treatments that helped came about.

While Ms. Turner had her battles with drugs and alcohol in attempts to dull the pain, it isn't just the age that is taking its toll, the RA is slowly destroying her joints.  Drugs like Enbrel help but it runs $1000 to $2000/month.

This image from Wiki looks BETTER than my Grandmother's hand did shortly before she passed away from suicide by surgery.  (Doctor told her a neck fusing procedure had a 90% chance of killing her and she couldn't get it scheduled fast enough after 60+ years of agony in an 85 year life span.)

The fact that Ms. Turner is able to get out and work is amazing.  Yeah, the movie will suck, but I'll watch it just because of the medical advances.

Flint Ironstag: Apos: Arguably her best role to date:


[futuracast.files.wordpress.com image 325x415]

I think she was better in Man With Two Brains.

"I can't wait......... until next Tuesday." Then Steve Martin stands up and his hat stays on his lap.

/Movie also has the line "I couldn't fark a gorilla!"


Both wrong:

For any actress, landing any kind of notable role after age 40 is incredibly freaking difficult. Yeah she's still got name-recognition and celebrity on her side but generally that still doesn't get you cast unless you are Jennifer Aniston or Sandra Bullock, and they are 90's stars. Having a hard time thinking of equivalent female stars from the 80's that are still pulling in film roles at will. Maybe Sigourney Weaver, Glenn Close and Diane Lane.

For someone who has been through the meat-grinder of life as much as Kathleen Turner has been I say good for her that she has another chance to show what she can do.

Between The Man With Two Brains and Romancing the Stone a lot of brave kittens gave their lives over her in the early 80's.

I still feel awful for making for of her changed appearance years ago, way before I knew about her health problems.

Digitalstrange: Last role I remember her it she was playing a transvestite dude. How is this a step down?


I have so much respect for her compared to most Hollywood sex symbol types. To go from one of the sexiest stars of the 80s to overweight and aged poorly due to an accident and health problems, she takes a Transvestite role and nails it outta the park. Most woman that start out hot and wind up  looking like Kristi Ally had it coming. Kathleen didn't, yet she still had enough pride and self esteem to nail that role as if to say "fark it, some I'm not the hottest anymore,,, I'll do this. And to do it opposite of Morgan Fairchilds still perfect tits. Shes got some class.
 Turner: "Aren't you a little old to be wearing that dress"?
Fairchild: "Don't you have a little too much penis to be wearing yours?"

indarwinsshadow: Getting old isn't bad. Getting fat and staying fat sucks. I don't understand how people can let themselves go.


Sometimes, people find themselves involved in accidents that result in an injuries.  Sometimes, those injuries make regular physical exercise difficult or impossible.  It would appear that Kathleen Turner is one of those people.

One time out of town with a gig she whispered in my ear I should join her in her hotel room that night as she had a rather remarkable bottle of wine to share.

I got to her room and apparently she had whispered the same thing to everyone else working on the production. She is awesome.

Romancing the Stone was my favorite. A lot of actresses look good when wearing good clothes, and have professional makeup and good lighting. She was covered in muddy water (OK, still the product of makeup people, but not meant to look good), washed out makeup, torn, boring clothes, and still looked hot as a supernova.

She is a truly great actor who has survived actual hardship in Hollywood. Her dedication to Planned Parenthood is astonishing. And she has gracefully managed the transition from being the hottest piece of ass in film to an elder stateswoman of the craft. There is not much not to like about Kathleen Turner.

The alternative sucks even more. For nearly 60, she looks just fine.

browntimmy: Lsherm: browntimmy: There really are stuck up submitters on this site. Dumb and Dumber is one of the better comedies of the last 20 years and I highly doubt Kathleen Turner is turning down roles left and right.

Dumb and Dumber was OK, but the Farrelly brothers really perfected their art of stupid comedy with Kingpin.  That movie is wall to wall jokes and there are very few misfires.

I'd definitely say D&D and Kingpin are their two best, but I'd probably rather see a Dumb and Dumber sequel (with the same actors and team making it) than a Kingpin one.


I wasn't suggesting Kingpin needed a sequel.  It's really very good on its own.  I love that movie, no need to draw the story out any more.

I didn't know how bad RA was until I saw the actor who played Klinger in M*A*S*H* talking about his struggles with it on a program. Horrifying. Sorry for your grandma's suffering, I can't even imagine.

Ummm, Subby, Kathleen Turner did Undercover Blues which, while I loved it, is not exactly top tier material.  At worst this would be the same quality.

How is this a Fail? Except that it's yet another sequel that should have been made 15 years ago.
