People Are Loving This Wild Kathleen Turner Interview: 'I’m F**kin’ Angry, Man'The actress told Vulture about Trump's "gross" handshake, her distaste for Elizabeth Taylor, and much more.Kathleen Turner is best known for her husky voice, but her hilarious candor in a recent interview is what’s gotten people’s attention this week.
In an interview published on Tuesday on Vulture, the storied actress held absolutely nothing back when talking about everything from celebrities she doesn’t like to handshakes that made her cringe to the rage she feels on a daily basis.
Essentially, this interview is pure gold. Here were some of our favorite parts:
On Nicolas Cage:
On Elizabeth Taylor:
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof — you ever listen to her voice?It’s awful. She has a bad voice, badly used … I don’t think she was very skilled.
On interacting with Donald Trump:
He has this gross handshake … He goes to shake your hand and with his index finger kind of rubs the inside of your wrist. He’s trying to do some kind of seductive intimacy move. You pull your hand away and go “yuck.”
On her approach to acting:
In “Crimes of Passion” I was playing a designer by day, $50 whore on Hollywood Boulevard by night. Do you think I was going to hang out with whores on Hollywood Boulevard and find out what the fuck that was like? I have an imagination, you know. My belief is that all the information I need is in the script. And if it’s not, then it’s not a good enough script.
As you can see, Turner is chock full of quotable lines to both live by and borderline choke on a beverage while reading. And many people on Twitter seem to agree:

I would listen to a 100-episode podcast series that's just Kathleen Turner talking shit about Nicolas Cage.

What if Kathleen Turner just said anything she wanted to say exactly the way she wanted to say it? Nobody burns bridges more delightfully. And she even gives Film Twitter this guess-who me to play all day long. https://t.co/l9ZlX43bjm pic.twitter.com/juaCDcr5R3
