Gina Gershon - Biography

 

Gina L. Gershon (born June 10, 1962) is an American film and television actress, known for her roles in the films Cocktail (1988), Showgirls (1995), Bound (1996), and Face/Off (1997).

Gershon was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Mickey, an interior decorator, and Stan Gershon, who worked in the import/export business and sales. Gershon is Jewish, and has a brother, Dan, and a sister, Tracy. She attended Beverly Hills High School with Lenny Kravitz. After high school, Gershon moved to Boston, where she attended Emerson College.
A 2008 Vanity Fair article linked her romantically with former President Bill Clinton. Speaking on the U.S. television show Live with Regis and Kelly on June 9, she said, "It is such a crazy, outrageous lie… I met him three times at events. It disturbed me on so many levels."

Gershon moved to New York City from Boston to attend New York University, where she studied drama and child psychology. She also attended the Circle in the Square Professional Theater School in New York, working with David Mamet and Harold Guskin. She is one of the founding members of the New York-based theater group Naked Angels.
She has thrice appeared on Broadway, as Sally Bowles in the revival of Cabaret, in the revival of the sex farce Boeing-Boeing, and is currently playing Rosie Alvarez in the Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie at the Roundabout Theatre Company.
Her first acting venues were stage appearances in Camille and The Substance of Fire. She had a cameo role in The Cars 1984 video Hello Again along side Andy Warhol. Her break came with a bit part in 1986's Pretty in Pink, and then a bigger part in Cocktail, with Tom Cruise. Gershon also worked in TV, with a recurring role on Melrose Place. She won critical acclaim for her portrayal of Nancy Sinatra in the made-for-TV biopic Sinatra. In 1996, she played Corky, an ex-con who gets mixed up in a lesbian affair with Jennifer Tilly, in the mobster flick Bound. The following year, she costarred with John Travolta and Nicolas Cage in Face/Off.
Gershon is regarded as a gay icon because of her roles in movies such as Bound (in which she played a butch lesbian), Prey for Rock & Roll, and Showgirls (which is regarded as a camp classic). She was ranked #23 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2004.
Gershon played Jew's harp on "I Can't Decide", a song on the Scissor Sisters 2006 release Ta-Dah. She also played Jew's harp on the song "I Do It For Your Love", Paul Simon's collaboration with Herbie Hancock on his album Possibilities. On television, she has recurring roles on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm (as a Hasidic dry cleaner), Rescue Me, and the U.S. dramedy series Ugly Betty (as Italian cosmetics mogul Fabia, the rival of Wilhelmina Slater). She also has served as the voiceover for Major League Baseball's "I Live For This" promotional campaign.
Gershon also appears in Lenny Kravitz's Music Video entitled "Again." She and her brother Dann are the authors of the children's book Camp Creepy Time. On September 10, 2008, Gershon appeared in a video on funnyordie.com, parodying former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, titled "Gina Gershon Strips Down Sarah Palin" which she followed with "Gina Gershon Does Sarah Palin 2".

 

Gina Gershon - Personal Quotes

 

[on Showgirls] "I decided to make my part campy because I initially thought that it was going to be really dark and really intense and then it just turned out to be completely different. So instead of going in that direction, I decided to make it so that drag queens would want to dress as my character on Halloween."

"All I wanted to do was play Conrad Birdie; I really wanted to be like the Elvis Presley guy, and they ended up giving me the lead, Rosie."

"All my roles are different parts of my personality. Hannah is the caretaker part of me, the psychologist in Prague Duet... is the part of me that's always analyzing, Guinevere's Billie is the artistic side."

"Being the control freak that I am, I want to know everything beforehand. At this point I'm just going along for the ride."

"A lot of my friends are struggling musicians. Being a struggling actor, it's just frustrating because you're not allowed to do what you want to do"

"Actresses are nightmares. I don't hang out with any of them. That's a problem with my profession. I try not to be like an actress."

"I kinda wish I could be a lesbian. So many girls come up to me all the time, I keep thinking, 'God, I should be a lesbian.' But unfortunately, I'm straight."
