17 years ago, she reached the bottom and nobody believes she used to be beauty.
Actress Kathleen Turner, who stars in the series “Heartstrings”, has been unrecognized lately. She used to be considered one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood and today no one can recognize her.
After the film ‘Body Heat’ in 1981, she gained worldwide fame, after which she starred in many popular films. At the height of her career, she also faced health problems that she did not want to talk about at the time. Specifically, in the early 1990s, she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, which is why doctors told her she would no longer be able to walk.
”Rheumatoid arthritis occurred in my late 30s when Hollywood viewed me as one of the most attractive ladies. The hardest part for me was that I was building my confidence in my physical appearance. Because if it wasn’t me, who I was,” said the actress at one time.
Although the difficult diagnosis left a mark on her, the actress did not give up. She began to take medication that prevented further development of the disease but also left a mark on her appearance. At the time, she didn’t pay too much attention to appearance but was solely focused on healing. Due to a drastic change in appearance, many were convinced that she was into alcohol and struggled to cope with the comments, so a few years later she found trouble and solace in alcoholic beverages.
Kathleen also published her autobiography about ten years ago, in which she discovered that her medication had clouded her mind and that she had given up drinking. She touched the bottom in 2002 when she decided to face her diagnosis and move on from addiction. Today, addiction is behind her, and without hesitation, she talks openly to set an example for others.
