A leading lady of 1980s cinema, Kathleen Turner earned comparisons to 1940s femme fatales like Barbara Stanwyck for sensuous, aggressive roles in "Body Heat" (1981), "Prizzi's Honor" (1985) and "The War of the Roses" (1989). When the smoky-voiced actress was not manipulating male characters with her on-screen sultry ways, she proved to be quite a comedienne, as well, volleying quips with Michael Douglas in the jungle adventure film "Romancing the Stone" (1984) and inhabiting an 18-year-old body in "Peggy Sue Got Married" (1986). She received a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in the early 1990s, and that - along with the actress' heavy drinking and over-40 status - meant her screen appearances were reduced to character roles as moms and comic villains, which she still pulled off with panache. After acclaimed theatrical runs in "The Graduate" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" on the New York and London stages, the fiery actress regained her esteemed reputation and settled into a comfortable real-life role as a supporting film player, theater director and acting teacher while appearing in films including "Marley and Me" (2008) and "Dumb and Dumber To" (2014) and TV series such as "Californication" (Showtime 2007-2014).
