Los Angeles, California
Street-wise and sassy but able to play glamourous roles for very obvious reasons, Gina Gershon shared screen time with James Belushi and Arnold Schwarzenegger in Red Heat in 1988 and was impressive as the girlfriend of the Russian gangster being tracked down by Arnie as one of Moscow's finest in a new twist on the buddy genre.
Jumping between big screen and small screen Gershon seemed destined for a career as a busy but B-list actress until the memorable Bound where she played lesbian Korky who teams up with lover Jennifer Tilly to out-smart the mob in one of the best big screen offerings of the mid-90's. It was the movie Gina needed after the disasterous Showgirls which is now a recognized turkey.
The John Woo directed Face/Off kept this particular beautiful face in the minds of moviegoers and as one of the best character actresses around, Gershon is very watchable in a variety of screen roles ranging from reporter to cop to bad girl.
