Kathleen Turner made waves in the 1980s as a sex icon. The sexy- star was born in Springfield, Missouri, on the 19th of June 1954. Her father was a US Foreign Service Officer. This occupation had allowed Kathleen and the rest of her family to live in countries like Venezuela and Cuba, as well as being able to study in an American School in London until her father’s death, which then prompted the Turner family to move back to the United States of America.
She had continued her studies and even earned a Fine Arts degree from the University of Maryland Baltimore County. A little known about the actress is that before she pursued a career in acting, she was already an accomplished gymnast and fluent in Spanish.
She is famously known for her debut role in the film Body Heat, which premiered the year 1981. Her portrayal as Matty Waker catapulted her to great success and set her name in stone as a famous sexy Hollywood actress. Until this day, her portrayal of the relentless character is recognized as one of the best sexiest roles ever to exist. Turner continued to flourish by using her hot body to her advantage in the films The Man with Two Brains, Peggy Sue got Married, The War of the Roses, and The Jewel of the Nile.
Most of these films contain scenes highlighting her boobs and ass, staying true to her label as a sex icon. Turner spiced up the 80’s without having to parade in a bikini or a figure-hugging dress. However, despite being known as an actress who gives life to sexy film characters, Kathleen Turner continues to turn down roles that portray a victimized weak woman.
Aside from her work as a sexy Hollywood starlet, she also voiced the animated character of Jessica Rabbit in the Disney film Who Framed Roger Rabbit? In the small screen, Turner also played a few roles, the most famous one being the mother of the iconic American television character Chandler Bing of the sitcom FRIENDS.
In the year 2004, she had received a lifetime achievement award at the Savannah Film Festival given by the Savannah College of Arts and Design. The image of this sexy star was immortalized by the techno-pop group, Falco, in their song “The Kiss of Kathleen Turner.”
Kathleen Turner eventually left the glitz and glamour of Hollywood due to Rheumatoid Arthritis, severely impacting her acting career and daily living. She was previously on the Board of Directors of Planned Parenthood of America, showing that she is not just limited to her hot figure.
