Sultry, dark-eyed, brunette leading actress Gina Gershon mixes a muscular toughness with her seductive femininity. Born June 10th, 1962, Gershon wasthe youngest of five children. Raised in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley, Gershon gets her exotic looks from her French, Russian, and Dutch heritage. After high school, she decided she wanted a more sophisticated image than those usually attributed to Valley Girls like herself and so moved to the Big Apple, to earn a bachelor of arts degree at New York University. While in New York, she studied acting with such well-known teachers as Sandra Seacat, David Mamet, and Harold Guskin. She started out in theater and worked on both coasts.Since the mid-'80s, Gershon has carved out a living as a reliable character actress on both the big and the small screens. Her most notable role on the tube was that of Nancy Sinatra, the famous wife of Old Blue Eyes himself, in the CBS miniseries Sinatra (1994). Gershon made her feature film debut playing a small role opposite Molly Ringwald in 1986's Pretty in Pink, and graduated to the jucier role of of Coral opposite Tom Cruise in Cocktail (1988). Through the 1990s, Gershon vascillated between high-brow and low-brow fare, the former exemplified by her memorable turns in John Sayles's City of Hope (1991), Robert Altman's The Player (1992), and Michael Mann's The Insider (1999); the latter, by her gleeful, scenery-chewing work in Best of the Best 3 and the infamous Showgirls (both 1995). Gershon's signature role, however, was a synthesis of B-movie pulp and indie smarts, courtesy of the Wachowski brothers' twisty 1996 neo-noir Bound. Cast as a woman falling in love with an abusive gangster's moll, Gershon was able to radiate an intelligence, sexuality, and power not afforded her by previous scripts, and the lead part would go a long way in establishing her screen persona into the new millenium.Gershon enjoyed success in 1997 when she co-starred with Nicolas and John Travolta in the blockbuster action thriller Face/Off, and again in 1999 with a role in The Insider. The actress co-starred with Dennis Hopper in the crime thriller Out of Season (2004), and the 2006 comedies Delirious and I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With. In 2010, Gershon appeared in The Love Ranch, a period film documenting the true story of Nevada's first legal brothel.

Sasha Hassler says: Yeah? I'm bored.

Sharla says: You want some chicken? I stopped by the K-fried-C.

Sharon says: Plus, you're American, you got foreign exotic stuff going on for you.

Holly says: There is nothing exotic about being an American.

Sharon says: He doesn't know that!

Corky says: Corky: [after making love with Violet] I can see again!

Corky says: [after making love with Violet] I can see again!

Corky says: Violet: I'm not sorry for what I did, I'm sorry for what I didn't do!

Violet says: I'm not sorry for what I did, I'm sorry for what I didn't do!

Cristal Connors says: You fuck him for the spot? Or did you fuck him cause you wanted to? I say you did it for the spot.

Nomi Malone says: Is that what you did Cristal?

Cristal Connors says: You don't want to piss me off darlin', now that we're friends.

Nomi Malone says: No... You shouldn't get pissed off. Makes you look older.

William says: I'd love a shower.

Denise says: What a great idea!!

Sharon says: Oh my God! There's one downstairs, it's fantastic! Come on, I'll get you some linen and towels and show ya. Great. Take your wine.

Denise says: Sharon's pregnant!

Denise says: Mmm, oh he's delicious, isn't he? I can serve coffee on that ass.

John says: Do you have to be so vulgar about men, like they're pieces of meat?

Denise says: Sorry John, I forgot you're sensitive about your flat ass.

John says: You know, Denise, that's why you're not married.

Sharon says: [clears throat]

John says: Women act like men, then they complain men don't want them.

Denise says: Oh, is that why? Oh, ok, 'cause I thought it was something different. I thought it was because I thought I deserve the best. And he's out there, he's just with all the wrong women. And let me be clear, after centuries of men looking at my tits, instead of eyes, and pinching my ass, instead of shaking my hand, I now have the divine right to stare at a man's backside with vulgar, cheap, appreciation if I want to.

Sharon says: Well said.

Daniel says: I thought so.

Sharon says: You gotta be rich to be insane, Hol. Losing your mind is not a luxury for the middle class.
