She was making waves in Hollywood with her golden hair and blue eyes.

Kathleen Turner became a famous sex symbol in the early 1980s. Since then, her looks have significantly changed, but she is still a well-known figure in Hollywood.

She appeared in numerous films alongside A-list stars such as Steve Martin, Michael Douglas, and Jack Nicholson, but her acting career began to wane as time passed.

Turner stated in 1994 that she was suffering from an autoimmune condition that caused her excruciating agony and fevers, impairing her ability to perform.

Her popularity in the entertainment business suffered as a result of this. Despite this setback, she was nominated for multiple awards for her acting abilities, illustrating that you don’t have to be beautiful or famous to be successful in the show business.

Turner was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammatory autoimmune illness, in the early 1990s.

Doctors had given her a gloomy prognosis, predicting that she would soon need to use a wheelchair due to the swelling in her wrists limiting her mobility.

As a result, reports spread that she had become a heavy drinker in an attempt to dull the pain of her condition.

Turner wrote an essay about her struggle with rheumatoid arthritis in 2009. She described how her concerns about physical appearance and sexiness suddenly paled in compared to the difficulties of merely walking without agony.

Turner is well known for her role as Jessica Rabbit in the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Following a life-altering diagnosis, the actress was put on various drugs, which significantly impacted her physical appearance.

This fueled the public assumption that she had become addicted to drinking or drugs. Rather than respond to the rumors, she remained silent, enduring the press’s continuous criticism of her metamorphosis.

Her new appearance was due to the adverse effects of her doctors’ treatments and meds – something beyond her control.

Despite this knowledge, she elected not to reveal what had caused such drastic alterations in her physical appearance.

Turner’s lengthy fight with rheumatoid arthritis has ended, and she attributes her successful recovery to daily gymnastics and Pilates practice.

Her marriage to real estate mogul Jay Weiss lasted 23 years before they divorced in 2007.

Turner still makes appearances in cinema and theater performances less frequently than she did during her peak.

We can be thankful that, despite her medical concerns, she was able to take charge of her health and overcome the obstacles posed by her situation.
