In her early years, Turner was interested in performing, despite her father's lack of encouragement: "My father was of missionary stock," she later explained, "so theater and acting were just one step up from being a streetwalker, you know? So when I was performing in school, he would drive my mom and sit in the car. She'd come out at intermissions and tell him, 'She's doing very well.'"[3]


Turner graduated from the American School in London in 1972. Her father died of a coronary thrombosis the same year and the family moved back to the United States. She attended Missouri State University at Springfield for two years (where a fellow classmate was John Goodman), then gained her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 1977.

Turner rose to prominence as the star of Romancing the Stone with Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito. Demanding film critic Pauline Kael wrote of her performance as the mild-mannered romance writer Joan Wilder, "Turner knows how to use her dimples amusingly and how to dance like a woman who didn’t know she could; her star performance is exhilarating."[6] Romancing the Stone was a surprise hit: she won a Golden Globe for her role in the film and it became one of the top-ten-grossing movies of 1984.[7] Turner teamed up again with Douglas and DeVito the following year for a sequel, The Jewel of the Nile.

[Kathleen Turner is] evilly enchanting."[9] In that film, Turner played a former gymnast, and, as in other roles, she did many of her own stunts. (In fact, she broke her nose filming 1991's V.I.

As the man-eating Martha, Ms. Turner, a movie star whose previous theater work has been variable, finally secures her berth as a first-rate, depth-probing stage actress....At 50, this actress can look ravishing and ravaged, by turns. In the second act, she is as predatorily sexy as she was in the movie Body Heat. But in the third and last act she looks old, bereft, stripped of all erotic flourish. I didn't think I would ever be able to see Virginia Woolf again without thinking of Ms. Hagen. But watching Ms. Turner in that last act, fully clothed but more naked than she ever was in The Graduate, I didn't see the specter of Ms. Hagen. All I saw was Ms. Turner. No, let's be fair.

Turner has also slammed Hollywood for making it harder for actresses to get work as they got older whereby age didn't affect actor's careers, she claimed it was a 'terrible double standard'.

She later said in interviews that she didn't bother correcting the rumors because people in show business hire drunks all the time, but not people who are sick."

A few weeks after leaving The Graduate in November 2002, Turner checked herself into Marworth in Waverly, Pennsylvania for alcohol abuse. "I have no problem with alcohol when I'm working," she later explained. "It's when I'm home alone that I can't control my drinking...I was going toward excess. I mean, really!
