Kathleen Turner: “I don’t look like I did 30 years ago. Get over it!”

165299759_10 - Kathleen Turner:

On aging in Hollywood:

I don’t look like I did 30 years ago. Get over it! I’m going to be 60 next year. Sixty! And even I say to myself, ‘Okay, we can’t pretend anymore here.‘ You have to get to that place as a woman where you know your worth isn’t dependent on [looks].””

“One thing I get really tired of is people coming up to me and saying, [in a patronizing voice] ‘Oh, you look gooooood!’ One day I got so fed up I said, ‘I thank you. And I really wish I met you before so I could say the same for you.’”

… says Kathleen in Closer Weekly.

Chandler’s dad 😀 (That’s the first thing I thought of when seeing her face)

You don’t owe anything to anyone based on your looks.
Being pretty at some point somehow makes people think you owe them to maintain it and be “the best possible you” (according to their standards) no matter the sacrifices it implies. How insane is that?
To provide an example, I kind of let myself go for a few years and now that I’m “back” to my old prettier self I’m disgusted by the change in people’s behaviors.

I SO MUCh quote this comment. so much relate to this. guys thinking you look good to catch them, people thinking that once they know your looks they know you and aren’t interested in having a relation person-to-person but person-to-looks. jealous people that don’t even tell you they are. relatives who secretly want to posses your beauty by staring at you everytime you are not looking,comparing your clothes size with theirs, don’t looking in your eyes but at your body instead when talking to you for month and month, weirdly happy to see you gaining, making assumption on your vanity… Read more »

LOL so true! It becomes hilariously obvious how much looks affect the way people interact with you if you’ve experienced being both pretty and less pretty. Makes you a bit wary of people’s motives if you knew them during both periods, and they got much friendlier when you became prettier. So many people do this type of thing that I don’t even get angry anymore because it’s so common. People are shallow.

Thank you for discussing this issue and validating what I have experienced in my life!! At my new job when I started I was heavier and am now back to my much thinner way more attractive self, brought out the sharp work clothes I loved to wear, etc. etc…..The looks I get now I thought I was imagining, the lack of smiles when I walk in a room now – its disturbing. One of my close coworkers that has been trying to lose weight is so distant anymore with me, its ridiculous and I know I am no different in… Read more »

I don’t like your “they can suck it” attitude. I think that is the problem. talking to them maybe? if you have a friend struggling to loose weight and u succed in it, it is evident that she/he would like to be were you are, why don’t give some advises or go have a healthy dinner/ run in the park toghether sometimes???? that’s what friends do! share good achievements inspiring Others making them feel like it is all for the good

I dont think all people are shallow like this, but some people definitely are. I was also very heavy when I started at my job, and am starting to lose the weight a little. I am not at my thinnest normal self yet, but there is an improvement for sure. Anyway, most of the women are still fine and treat me well. Some of the women (that are always catty anyway) are way worse to me and are catty behind my back regarding the clothes I wear (they are not in the slightest revealing btw, they are just corporate clothes).… Read more »

Julia, I understand you well. I suffered for a long time with Grave’s Eye disease. Before that, I was known as a basically, pretty girl. The way I was treated when my eyes swelled and distorted a bit was appalling. Now, that the disease has a kind of burned itself out, I have a day or three where I look “like a used to” and you something, on those days, people do treat me “as they used to”, but on the days the swelling comes back, they change, again. It’s an affliction that has taught me so much of this… Read more »

First I will say, I LOVE her! She was so hot back in the day. Her body was perfect imo – soft, curvy and totally feminine. And her voice….love it!
But I will admit that I think she looks bad for her age! My own mother and mother-in-law, who are both in their 60’s, still look amazing, whereas Kathleen Turner looks almost like she gave up on herself??? I’m not talking even her body as much as her overall appearance.

she doesn’t look very good because she is overweight. she would find herself better at a normal weight even at the havier side of normal. hope she will loose a bit for her own pleasure.

What? She looks like a normal 60-y-old, not younger, not older imo.

She has rheumatoid arthritis and was on s—ids long term for the pain – that is why she is overweight and looks bloated. My mother has RA but has to take a chemo drug for it (and has been on s—ids too short-term) – which has other side effects just as unpleasant but not as obvious as s—ids. I am also having tests for an autoimmune condition myself and was on a short course of s—ids recently – they are horrible and many people who take them long-term will gain weight and may have puffiness in the face, etc. It’s… Read more »

I didn’t know anything of that.. well, she could go blond even at the top part of her hair to see an improvement

I like this quote a lot. I also like her b!tchy retort to people who patronize her.

I love her and always have it *is* a shame that she has let herself go but if she’s happy, good for her.

She doesn’t look great for her age, but I think she’s had some pretty drastic health issues over the past few decades. I’m just going off of memory, but I think she had some type of extreme arthritis issues that she self medicated with booze to cope with the pain. So her looks may not be due to just letting herself go…. When I was a kid I thought she was so hot in Romancing the Stone and War of the Roses. I love her recent work on Californication as a swinging sexual harassing boss. She doesn’t shy away from… Read more »

She is right, looks certainly aren’t everything, but man, she used to be pretty. I’m almost not convinced that’s her in the recent photos lol.

f**k people. she was one of the prettiest girls in the world, she lived it, and now she is an old woman and has other bussiness on her mind. and those women who patronise her can only talk sh*t cause they will never live it, as much as they try..

She looked incredible when she way a young actress. Always was a femme fatale. 🙂

I never really thought she was that pretty to begin with, even in her younger days. But she is a good actress. It’s funny how people only ever have sympathy for illness if it makes you gain weight. If it’s an illness that makes you lose weight, people aren’t so forgiving and are quick to jump to the wrong conclusions.

I think she was really pretty, and so fun in Romancing the Stone and War of the Roses! However, I’ve heard that when she was introduced to Lauren Bacall, she said, “I’m the young you!” because people had compared them before. I just think it’s weird. This woman never had anything on Ms. Bacall! But I’m a huge fan, so I’m really biased 🙂 As for her quote, I think she sounds grounded and smart and confident. I think it’s awesome that she’ll state that a woman’s worth is SO MUCH MORE than her looks! I wish people would start… Read more »

wow she was so gorgeous! I just knew her from the “Sha sha sha boom” movie… not sure of the actual tittle but that’s what me and my sisters referred to it as 😉 It was one of those low budget Disney movie?

Oh. My. Lord. She’s really let herself go…. And is blaming it on the “aging process.” It’s really kind of sad…. Her legs look like they belong to an 80 year old and she wore orthopedic shoes to a red carpet event…. There are no words.

“…and she wore orthopedic shoes to a red carpet event….” Yes–because teetering around on 4″ spike heels when you have rheumatoid arthritis is damned near impossible–not to mention heinously painful.

I think she looks awesome. And I hate to disagree that she looks different. She doesn’t, actually. She looks like Kathleen Turner, 30 years later. She still looks like Kathleen Turner and I would recognize her, anywhere. But I agree that people are misjudged (fair or foul) on looks. It’s so “stinting” to a human being who is better than how they look, on always.

To those people who are mystified by her weight gain – – I have had RA like Kathleen for over 4 years. I’ve spent most of that time on prednisone, and have gained about 70 lbs. My doctor told me that even if I starved myself I could gain as much as 5 lbs. per month on prednisone. My face is as swollen as a pumpkin. I was interested to read a bio of Flannery O-Connor, the writer, who was on prednisone until her early death in her late 30’s from RA. Every time I tried to decrease the dosage… Read more »
