Used to Be Hot: Kathleen Turner

Have you ever seen Romancing the Stone? I watched it at one point last year and I was surprised with how solid it was, but the real surprise was actually how hot Kathleen Turner was at the time. For most of my lifetime Kathleen Turner was a bit of an eyesore. So when I saw her pop up in this film as the love interest of Michael Douglas’ character I did a bit more looking into her.

She had several great roles in the 80s. One of my favorites is as the voice of Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Turner basically went from a top tier movie star to playing Chandler Bing’s cross dressing dad in Friends in roughly a decade. Struggles with Arthritis has been her reasoning for the alteration of her looks and the reason she gained so much weight. A significant drinking problem may have been to blame as well. She does seem to have a good sense of humor about it though.

Do you remember when Kathleen Turner was hot?
